Coffee Buns (Tesco Bread Maker Recipe)

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. 

Coffee Buns

300gm bread flour
30gm fine sugar
half tsp of salt
5g of dried yeast
1 packet of 2-in-1 coffee powder
1 packet of raisins
180ml of room temp water
20gm of butter (at room temp)

1. Put all the ingredients into bread maker follow the sequence of liquid, semi liquid, and dry ingredients.
2. Select "dough" program.
3. When the dough is ready, divide it into small portions. Mould into balls and put on a greased pan.
4. Let the dough prove for 15 minutes, then flatten slightly and continue to let them prove for 30 minutes.
5. Bake at 190 deg C for 12-15 minutes.

Sorry to hear it did not turn out as expected. I wonder whether 15 mins and 30 mins is enough proofing time.
