As mentioned earlier in my post on Garlic Butter Bread, I have numerous bread recipes which are waiting for their turn to greet you all.

Hence, here is another home made bread which we love very much.

I used the leftover red bean paste from my previous Easy Snow Skin Mooncake.

This recipe was adapted from Bread Magic Vol 6 page 37 on Black Date Rolls. Instead of black date, I substituted the fillings with red bean paste. Eh... not bad! My girls love the red bean paste and they gave me all thumbs up for this bread.

Red Bean Paste Rolls
Recipe source : adapted from Bread Magic page 37 with some minor modifications in red
Ingredients (A) :
- 330 high protein flour
- 1.5 tbsp milk powder
-1/2 tsp salt
- 60g caster sugar
Ingredient (B) :
- 1 egg (grade B)
Ingredients (C) : Mixed together
- 120ml water
- 10g instant yeast
Ingredient (D) :
- 40g butter

Ingredients for Filling : Mixed together
- 250g black date paste (I used red bean paste)
- some sesame seeds
Glazing :
-1 egg (beaten)
Topping :
- some sesame seeds

Method :
1) Combine ingredients A together in a mixer. Slightly blend it before adding ingredients B and C.

2) Beat approximately 5 minutes to form a dough.

3) Add butter and continue to beat until the dough is smooth. To check whether the dough is fully developed, stretch a small piece with your fingers to see if it can be stretched into thin layer without tearing it. If it does not stretch, continue beating again until it passes the stretch.

4) Remove dough and leave it in a big bowl, cover with a piece of damp cloth. Leave bowl in a warm place and proof dough for about 30-40 minutes till doubled in size.

1-4) I used bread machine to knead the dough. Just put the ingredients as per your machine instructions and let it proof. After the 1st proofing, take the dough out from the machine.

5) Scale dough at 60g portions. Shape them into small balls and let them rest for 5 minutes.

6) Flatten and roll each ball of dough and place filling, seal and wrap into a ball.

7) Roll flat once more and make several slits. Roll up and place on a greased baking try or pan. Repeat the above process with the rest of the dough. Cover with a damp cloth and leave them for 45 minutes or more for a second time proofing.

8) Once they are doubled in size, glaze with egg wash and sprinkle top with some sesame seeds.




9) Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for 12-15 minutes depending on individual's oven. So, do adjust the temperature and timing accordingly.

10) Remove and cool on wire rack.


The bread is soft and fluffy


My girls and hubby complimented that this homemade red bean paste rolls is better than those bakery shops

With the increasing cost of living, isn't it cheaper to make your own bread?

Do enjoy baking your own  home baked bread with your family members!
