Almond Cream Buns: Sweet delicious buns

 I bake bread every weeks but lately I end up make a lot of white sandwich bread than other kinds of it. 
Because sandwich bread is easy and each person can turn it into the taste they like. But it's not what I want to be, haha, bake something again and again is boring. So this week I made sweet buns instead. This bread is easy to make and very easy if you have bread machine, that let you put all the ingredients into the machine and just wait until it's ready.
But you can knead by hand too, with hand kneading you will need more flour, but add it bit by bit until you get smooth and soft dough.
For the almond cream, you have to pipe it just before baking or it won't stay in place, but it will spread anyway, ^^. 
Serving suggestion, in a morning with a cup of black coffee is the best for me.


 Almond Cream Buns
Makes 10

 Bread
230g ..................................... Bread flour (if kneading by hand use 240-250g)
3g ......................................... Instant yeast
150ml ................................... Whole milk
2g ......................................... Salt
40g ....................................... Granulated sugar
25g ....................................... Salted butter
25g ....................................... Egg

Almond cream
50g ....................................... Salted butter, soft
65g ....................................... Granulated sugar
65g ....................................... Eggs
50g ....................................... Almond powder
25g ....................................... All purpose flour

 Put all the ingredients into a bread machine bowl.
Use dough program ^^.
If knead by hand, put flour, sugar, and yeast into a bowl, whisk to combine.
Put salt into the bowl and whisk again.
Pour milk and egg into the bowl, use spatula to mix until combine.
Remove from the bowl and knead until fully combine, add the butter and knead until smooth.
Cover and let the dough rest for 1 hour.

 Mix all the ingredients for almond cream together.

 Put in a zip-lock bag and refrigerate until ready to use.

 When the dough is ready, sprinkle work surface with flour.
Remove from the bowl and divide into 10 pieces.
Roll each piece into a ball.
 Place the rolled dough onto a lined sheet pan, cover and let it rise until almost double in size, about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile preheat an oven to 190C..

When the dough is ready.
Cut the top of the dough with a scissor, to make x cross.

Cut the zip-lock bag and pipe the almond cream over the dough, put into the oven bake for 15-18 minutes.

  1. I have a question--is almond powder different from almond flour/meal? I have this kind of almond flour: http://www.bobsredmill.com/almond-meal-flour.html. I cannot find almond powder even in online searches. Thank you for your help! Your almond cream buns look delicious and I would like to try to make them.
