My dad has been hinting me to bake this coconut bun for quite few times, then last Thu mum agreed to stir fry the coconut floss filling if I could find her the recipe. I found it in the Kuali site, however mum added some chopped sugared winter melon and toasted sesame seed as per dad's request.
I baked them all (19 of the little buns) in a cake tin, look beautiful isn't it?
Just look at those shinny buns...
I was about to present this to my dad, however....
About an hour or 2 hours later after those buns were out from oven, I wanted to tear out 1 for dad to try out & bringing some back home. While I was tearing it, I realize... omg! It was not cook!!! I was out of my mind that day, and I don know what happen to me, I bake those babies for just 15 minutes only, of course it wouldn't be cook as they were squeezing together tightly.
I quickly pre-heat the oven, put in the buns to cook up for another 15 minutes, but those bun just don wanna be co-operated. Therefore, I gotta brought those buns out from oven again, tore them apart from each other, then re-bake. At last, they were cook (they tasted fine) but they look so terribly ugly til I got no mood to take photo... sigh! So sorry, Ah Ba (this is how I'm calling my dad)! I promised him I'd bake him a better looking batch very soon.
Early this week, I told mum I'm gonna bake this coconut buns again, asked her to buy & cook those filling 1 more time. And * ta da... * here is a batch I baked yesterday, I made them as individual buns this time, of course they were baked nicely, cooked and yummy! Mum said they looked like those store bought buns, so now I could proudly present this buns to my ah ba!
P/s The recipe of the sweet bread dough for the buns was from Mr Alex Goh's Magic Bread.
