Kopitiam Milk Buns / Plain Milk Buns 甜牛奶面包

 
I have posted Chicken & Potatoes milk buns, chocolate milk buns and wholemeal milk buns using the same overnight sponge dough(milk) recipe. But I almost forgotten to post this basic and plain milk buns which I did much earlier than all these buns. This very soft milk buns don't need much introduction, very popular among Chinese bloggers. And this buns look so old fashioned like those served in kopitiam (local café) in the old time, serve together with kaya (coconut egg jam) and butter.

don't need to egg wash this bun, look so basic and good!

from this pulling action, you can see how soft this bun is..

if you want to store it, then suggest to store in air-tight container to prevent buns turned dry.

I might cut down the sugar amount of this recipe in the future, because my family said this bun tasted a bit sweet for their liking. After spread with kaya (coconut jam), become even sweeter..

Hi, I had tried this recipe out and it turn out nice. I wonder can I double the size of the bread? Because 9 buns actually is not enough for my family! ;-) How is the formula goes if I wanna double the size?

Anonymous said...

Hi Sonia, do I need to wait for the sponge dough back to room temp. after 12 hours store in the fridge?

Thanks! From : Vivien

Crystal said...

Sonia, thank you so much for this recipe, I tried this with my bread maker for the first proofing, it turned out beautifully. I immediately shared with my friend and again recommended her your blog. Cheers, crystal.

hanushi said...

I would like to ask you regarding the Kopitiam Milk Buns, what is the size of the baking tray? Can advise? :)

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Teo, yes you can .
Hanushi, the square pan size 9x9"

Anonymous said...

TQ for the delicious looking recipe. Is it ok to double the recipe? Another question is, after shaping into balls, is it ok to leave them overnight in the fridge so that I can bake them in the morning for breakfast?

Thanks, Esther

Jennifer Teo said...

Hi Sonia, can I know how does a fermented sponge dough look like after 12hr in the fridge? I'm trying to bake but a bit confuse. Thank you

syikin said...

I have tried to double the quantity and it's work.i got the fluffy n smoth bread.if u want double the quantity u must double the ingredients too..the overnight sponge dough(OSD) must double the weight and also the bread ingredients..

Wanda said...

Hi Sonia, do I need to wait for the sponge dough back to room temp. after 12 hours store in the fridge? Can I knead the bread dough in the bread machine? I tried but it didn't rise after the dough program. Please help.

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

Wanda, no, don't need to wait for sponge dough back to room temp. sorry, I never use a bread machine before, couldn't advise on this.
