Best Coffee Bun Recipe | Crispy and Fluffy | Rotiboy, Paparoti

This is a coffee buns recipe that is crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Coffee buns straight out of the oven are crispy on the outside and delicious. There is no need to lengthen the kneading time, and it is very easy if you do it yourself. It’s really delicious, so make sure to try it. You can use all-purpose flour instead of bread flour. I used a large egg, and the weight is 64g including the shell. Salted butter can be used for filling, but it is difficult to control salt in the dough, so use unsalted. The filling can be applied by changing it to cream cheese, etc. Be sure to cool the coffee dissolved water before use. If you make coffee toppings in advance, the butter may melt, so keep it refrigerated before use. It is best to ferment the dough in a pot of warm water. (Change the water when it cools down). You can also do it in the air fryer. Set the temperature lower than the oven.Store leftover bread in the freezer, then thaw at room temperature and then bake in the oven at 160℃~170℃ for 10 minutes to enjoy crispy again.
