Mexican Bun

Mexican Bun

Last week, my daughter Sofea made a request for this Mexican Bun….but she didn’t remember the name of the bun, so she said “Ummi, can you make a bun like the one that we bought at Summit?” Summit is a shopping centre near our house in USJ…..and we always buy the Mexican bun whenever we went there. Baking this bread remind me of the smell that always greets me whenever I enter KLCC from the LRT station in the morning (sometimes I do take LRT to work) and withot fail, forcing me to queue up and buy one…. Yes! You have to queue up to  buy this bun in the morning in KLCC….


Ingredients :

Fillings 🙂

  • 100 g butter – softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 35 g sugar

Topping :-

  • 100 g butter – softened
  • 80 g icing sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon coffee emulco or you can use 2 tbsp instant coffee powder dissolved in 1 tbsp of water
  • 100 g flour

Sweet dough :-

  • 105 ml water
  • 250 g bread flour ( I used normal flour)
  • 2 tbsp powder milk
  • 40 g caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 7 g instant yeast
  • 80 g water roux
  • 30 g butter – softened

Methods :

Sweet dough : Put all the ingredient in the bread maker, select DOUGH and press ON. The whole process will take about 1 hr 30 min

Filling : Beat butter for 3 mins and then add vanilla and sugar. Mix well. Refrigerate the mixture until firm and divide into 10 small balls.

Topping :Beat butter and icing sugar for 5 min till light and fluffy. Add in egg one at a time and mix well. Add the coffee emulco and the the flour. Mix until combined.

Mexican Bun : Punch the dough to release air and remove it  from the BM . Divide the dough into 10 balls and let it rest for 10 min. Flatten a ball of dough with the palm of your hand. Place a ball of filling in the centre of the dough. Gather the edge and pinch to seal. Pat into shape and place on a greased baking tray. Repeat with remaining portions of dough. Prove for 45 min in a warm place. Pipe the topping on the buns in a spiral, starting from the centre. Bake in preheated oven at 200 C for 12 to 15 min or until buns are lightly brown.
