Pumpkin Spice Milk Buns:
210ml warm milk
2 tbsp brown sugar
3g instant yeast
340g bread flour
1 tsp Suncore Foods® Rose Salt
2 tsp pumpkin spice
2 tsp Suncore Foods® Autumnal Baked Yam Supercolor Powder
42g softened unsalted butter
Milk or Egg Wash:
1 tbsp milk OR
1 tbsp milk + 1 egg yolk
Cinnamon sticks split in half
1. Bloom yeast by combining with milk and sugar. Stir and set aside for 10 mins.
2. In a stand mixer bowl, combine flour, salt, and powders and give it a quick mix. Add in yeast mixture and knead on med-low with hook attachment until there’s no visible dry flour. Add butter and knead on med-high 8-10 mins until dough is smooth. Form into a ball, cover, and let proof for 1 1/2 hours or until it’s doubled in size.
3. Punch out all bubbles in dough and form into a log. Cut into 6-7 even pieces (85-90g each) and roll each piece into a tight ball. Make sure seams are closed.
4. Using a long piece of cooking string, find the halfway point and place on top a dough ball. Flip it over and bring string ends together. Create a cross at center of the dough (bottom-side) by crossing them, then flip dough again until it’s right-side up. Repeat this until you have divided dough into 8 equal pieces. Double tie at the top when done and cut off any excess string. Finish this with remaining dough balls, cover, and let proof for 1 hour or until doubled in size. Preheat oven to 200°C (390°F).
5. Brush on milk or egg wash and bake for 12-15 mins or until golden. Cut string ties and when buns are cool enough to touch. Brush on melted butter, top with 1/2 cinnamon stick.
