Buttery Apple Buns





Introduction: Buttery Apple Buns

The buns themselves, they taste milky good; and with ith the buttery apple filling, these buns are ah-ma-zing.

Step 1: Ingredients and Method


1 1/4 c milk (no skim nor 1% milk please. I'd go for 3% or 2.8% at least)

1/4 c sugar

1 heaping tsp instant yeast

4 c flour

Heat milk to lukewarm, stir in sugar, let stand for a for 30 seconds then stir in yeast. Let stand until yeast is softening

Add in flour one cup at a time, knead. Cover and let stand until doubled in size, in warm area

Meanwhile, make the filling


2 apples, as long as they are sweet

2-3 tbsp sugar

lime juice of 1/2 lime

1 generous tbsp butter

2 tsp of cornstarch diluted in a little milk

Skin and slice apples into small thin quarters. Place apples in a pot, turn on heat low-medium. Add in butter, stir until melted and apples starting to soften. Stir in sugar until melted. Cook until you feel the apples are soften enough (depending whether you want them to be a bit crunchy or totally soften).

Pour in cornstarch mixture, stir quickly, to thicken. Take off from heat and let cool to room temperature.

Making Buns:

Divide dough into 8 balls. Flatten each with your hands and fill center with 1 generous apple filling, seam to seal

Steam buns and enjoy :)

    would assume it's similar to making a custard... put a pot of water under what is being baked in the oven. Thanks

    I should have said "milky and buttery", if steamed

    I also have to mention, if you steam these buns, you will get milky flavor in the buns. not so much in baked.

    this method would work for cheesecake, custard, and BREAD. above recipe could be baked, yes. you would produce just baked buns. texture would be different to steamed buns. AND placing water on lower rack, would give bread a crispier skin :)

    I'm not good with steaming, have never done it. Do you think you can bake them instead?

    when these buns are baked, you won't taste the milky buns tho, just FYI

    yes you can, however texture would be differ from baked to steamed :)
