Chocolate Milk Buns 巧克力牛奶面包


After I did the Chicken and Potatoes Curry Milk Buns, I have fall in love with this bread recipe. I continue to make two batch of breads using this recipe, one is plain milk buns or Kopitiam milk buns ( I was impressed with the softness of this bread again !!) and this chocolate milk buns as my kids prefer to have chocolate flavours.

Dear Sonia,

TQ for sharing the recipe. Was wondering, was the overnite sponge very dry and shaggy, given that there is so much flour and so little liquid? It wouldn't even form a dough right? TQ

Lori said...

Wow, these sound delicious! You can never go wrong with chocolate. What a great treat.

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Anonymous, yes, the overnite sponge is very dry but still able to form a rough dough. Don't worry about the look, this overnight is to make the bread soft and moist.

Hi Sonia,

For the overnight sponge dough, how long do I need to knead using stand mixer? Need to knead until window pane stage? After kneading, do I immediately store into fridge, or need to wait for it to proof first?
Thank you.

Hi Sonia, your chocolate bun look very soft and fluffy. Homemade bread is still the best especially during baking the aroma is so fragrant. I seldom buy from bakery, prefer to make my own. :))

Anonymous said...

hi, i am joanne, love your chocolate buns recipe, may i know can i still follow your recipe for this but without the overnite sponge method? thanks for your advice :)








Mandy Khoo said...

Hi just make the chocolate mill bun using ur recipe but all the chocolate chips melt n blend with the dough. After baked cant see the chips at all.. can advice how to keep d chips even after baked?? Tq

Anonymous said...

Hi Sonia, just to check with you...i am confused. I read fr somewhere that yeast needs warm water to start them working. Will cold milk in this recipe work? Thanks!

Regards,
Alicia

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Mandy,maybe your oven temp is a bit high, try to reduce and see how.

Alicia, yes, it still work without soak yeast in warm water. Actually this recipe using cold milk or water is for the bread has slower fermentation and develop nice bread aroma..Once you have done with the final dough, put near to warm place to let is rise, the yeast will active again and generate nice bread. Hope this helps.

Chong sun sun said...

Hi Sonia, my overnite dough was quite dry and it is not double in size even i put overnite in my fridge. Is this normal? Thanks a lot.

Sun sun

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Sun Sun, yes, this should be the way, we need slow fermentation in the fridge for moist texture of bread .

If I'm using bread maker, do I need store in fridge for overnight?

Kyle and Mommy said...

Hi, I have never baked bread and would like to try this recipe. May I ask 1) what is meant by knead past window pane?

Kyle and Mommy said...

2) how long does it take to proof until the dough double it's size?
