Red Bean Swirl Bun

Red Bean Swirl Bun

I love everything with Red Bean. This time I try skill to make this Red Bean Swirl Buns. I use the homemade red bean paste I bought from a shop here. The bean paste sold by them are just great. It's not too sweet and without preservatives. I have to freeze it in my freezer and defrost it when I'm going to use it. By looking at my buns, I think I still need a lot of practice to shape the perfect looking buns.

Actually it's not that hard to make this swirl pattern. All we need is PRACTICE. The more we practice the better we'll become. Practice makes perfect right? Although the buns are not very pretty but it's soft and fluffy. It's like the one sold in bakery and remains soft for few days. Not too bad right? ^ ^

I made half of the dough into this Red Bean Swirl Buns and the other half I topped it with shredded Cheddar Cheese + Raw Sugar. Both buns are nice and yummy. Click HERE to see my Cheddar Cheese Buns.

Please refer HERE for the method of kneading the dough.

To assemble the buns:

  • Roll the bean paste into 1cm diameter long strip and place it at the center of the dough.
  • Fold the dough up and roll it again to flatten it.
  • Use a sharp knife and cut a long the dough 2 lines.
  • Lift up the dough and swirl it for few times before shape it round. Place the dough into paper liner.
  • Let the dough proof at warm place for 20-25 mins.
  • Brush the surface with the egg yolk + milk mixture before sprinkle it with some sesame seeds.
  • Bake in preheated oven at 180c for 12-15 mins or until it is brown in colour.
