Bento #11 and Doggie Bone bun

I was attraced by the look of the doggie bone bun when I came across Carol's blog. But mine turn out of shape...but I have fun making it =) The next morning I pack this for my girl for her to bring to school.

Honey Bun

I saw this piggy burger from a bento book I bought recently and decided to embark on it. So in order to make that set of bento I need to have small bun. As usual, I started to surf many food blogs and decided to bake this since I have all the ingredients in the fridge. Recipe from 星厨房 Honey Bun.

300g bread flour

30g egg

45g honey

3g salt

5g instant yeast

165g milk

30g butter


1) mixed all ingredient except butter

2) make into a stretchable dough and placed in butter

3) pass the window test and allow 60mins for 1st proofing or double its size

4) press the dough to allow air to be released and cut into required size and rest for 10mins

5) Wrap filling into dough ( I omit this step since I making plain bun)

6) 2nd proofing for 40mins

7) egg wash the bun

8) baked at 150c for 20mins

Getting lazy

Oh.... for more then a month I did not log on to my blog!!! Sign of laziness....on the other hand I am so into facebook..... as a result I am neglecting my blog....aiya...getting no discipline....

Anyway during these absence period, I'm still very much into baking...something which I can't stop totally =) just that I bake lesser these days and bake mostly during weekends.

I am also into bento making for my girl . This is not an easy task but I try my best to learn from blogs and books. I hope I can sustain this 'bentoing' but for how long I have no idea....cos I have to wake up as early as 5am then rush everything by 630am and to leave home by 645am.....rushing like mad right? But when my girl and boy told me that they love the food I prepared for them...I think its just worth it =)
