Since I owned a bread maker machine, I've tried making several types of bread loaf and buns. Not every baking is successful. Supposedly if you follow strictly the steps for the dough preparation using a bread maker, you shouldn't go wrong. But, the secret is in the ingredients, in terms of quality and proportions. For example, the yeast. So far, I tried 2 different brand of yeasts. The first brand results a good raise for dough, and the other one does not. I experimented using both brands of yeasts in several baking for the hypothesis, and it proved that my earlier assumption is right. So, I stick to my reliable yeast.
These coffee buns were made using the poor quality of yeast. Hence it did not raise properly. It's soft and springy while hot, but it's hard while cooled to room temperature. It was a failure. However, I believe with a good quality yeast, you'll get a perfect texture buns.
300gm bread flour
30gm fine sugar
