Recipe from my cousin Yasira from Johannesburg! ❤️
16 small cubes of butterDough:
500g flour75g brown sugar1 teaspoon salt2 teaspoon instant yeast1 egg lightly beaten270 ml warm milk60g softened butter
Icing200 grams soft butter160 grams icing sugar 3 large eggs 2 tablespoon coffee mixed with bout 2 tablespoon water200 gr self raising flour.
Before u start slice 16 small cubes of butter about the size of a small ice cube and freeze on a tray. (This is besides the other butter in recipe )
In mixer with a dough hook mix flour , sugar and salt on low speed. Add in yeast. Mix again. Add in milk and egg and mix on high for 8 minutes. Add in butter. Mix for 5 minutes more. Divide dough into 16 equal rounds. Leave to rest for 10 minutes on grease proof paper. Flatten each ball , turn over and place ice cube size butter inside and pinch to form a bun . Once all 16 are done leave to rise on a greased oven tray in a warm area .
Icing ( to be piped or spread over before baking )
mix icing sugar and butter till soft and creamy , add eggs in 1 at a time . Add in coffee and keep beating , slowly add in flour a little at a time. ( u may not need all or u may need a little more ) just check consistency. needs to be just firm enough to pipe. Put the icing into piping bag and in the fridge for at least half an hour before using it.
When you ready to bake , pipe on icing over buns in a spiral shape just over the top and a bit on the sides. Bake on 200 deg for between 12- 15 minutes
