Vanilla Sweet Bun/Sweet Vanilla Bun

Today's recipe is a sweet vanilla bun which I tried from Gayathri's space.These buns were crispy outside and soft inside with a mild sweet taste and vanilla flavor.These buns are a perfect tea time snack and it tastes delicious when its served warm.
When I made the dough for this bun and kept it for proofing,the dough was not raised properly even after 11/2 hours.But after rolling and kept it for the second raise it rose well and ended up in a soft,crispy delicious buns.Lets move on to the recipe................................................

                                                          Vanilla Sweet Bun/Sweet Vanilla Bun

   Basic Information

   Preparation time ~ 30 minutes
   Proofing time ~ 1 1/2 hours+11/2 hours
   Cooking time ~ 20-25 minutes
   Makes ~ 12 buns


All purpose flour
13/4 cups+2 tbs
for dusting
Instant yeast
1 tsp
Unsalted butter
1/4 cup(melted)
3 tbs
1/2 cup+2 tbs
(for brushing)
1/2 tsp
Vanilla extract11/2 tsp

   For the filling
Granulated white sugar
1/4 cup
Unsalted butter
3 -4 tbs

  • Mix in melted butter,sugar,milk and vanilla extract together.Take all purpose flour,instant yeast,salt and in a bowl.To this add the milk and butter,knead it to a soft dough.Knead the dough on a floured surface for 10 minutes till it becomes smooth and elastic.Shape the dough and keep it in a warm place for 11/2 hours or the volume of the dough doubled.

  •  Knead the dough on a floured surface for 10 minutes till it becomes smooth and elastic.Shape the dough and keep it in a warm place for 11/2 hours or the volume of the dough doubled.

  • After the raise,punch down the dough and divide it to two equal portions.Now divide each portion to 4 equal portion and roll it to  around ball.Now on  a floured surface,roll each ball to 5-6 inch diameter.Apply a tsp of butter and sprinkle some sugar.Keep it aside.Continue for the rest of the 3 balls.

  • Now stack 4 layers and roll it to a log from one end,cut it into 5-6 pieces.Continue the same process for the remaining balls .Roll and cut it.

  •  Arrange the cut rolls on a greased round baking tray as shown.Keep it in a warm place for another 11/2-2 hours.Before 10 minutes of the second proofing time pre-heat the oven at 350 F.Brush the rolls with the milk and bake it for 20-25 minutes or a nice golden crust formed.Cool it in a cooling rack.

  • Serve it warm with a cup of tea or coffee

    • Since sugar and butter is stuffed inside the roll the top of the rolls become slightly crispy and browned faster.
    • If you feel the top is getting golden in 10 minutes,wrap the baking pan with aluminium foil and bake it.
    • Arrange the cut rolls closer to each other,after the second raise it will expand and cover the whole pan.
    • I didn't warm the milk as the butter was melted and bit hot so added the the milk to it.
