Pineapple Bun (Bor-loh-bao)๐Ÿ๐Ÿฅฏ

๐Ÿ ๐Ÿฅฏ Pineapple bun aka ่ ่˜ฟๅŒ… (Boh-loh-bao) is a Hong Kong local ่Œถ้คๅปณ(Cha-chang-teng literally means “tea restaurant”) afternoon tea classic! It does not actually contain any pineapple, but as the topping has a rough and crackly surface, that’s where the name came from ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s a must try! Some people like it as ่ ่˜ฟๆฒน (Boh-loh-yau; where ‘yau’ means butter) – by cutting the bun it in half horizontally, and put a big fat slice of butter in the middle when the bun it’s still warm! Which do you prefer? ๐Ÿ˜‹

โญ๏ธ Succeeded first time with the recipe below by Tasty Cooking Studio! Very clear and straight forward instruction, it was a very enjoyable experience making them, especially with the soothing background music too! A 5/5 recipe! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Tips:
โœ”๏ธ The recipe makes 14 REGULAR size Pineapple buns (or bigger if you knead them very well lol). Personally I think it’s A LOT of buns even they are incredibly yummy. If you are sharing them out like I did it’s all good, or you may consider cutting the recipe in half and make smaller/ mini ones ๐Ÿ™‚ I managed to make 1 mini one with the last bit of dough. It was super cute!
โœ”๏ธ There are 3 main parts in the recipe: 1/ Utane Dough (ๆนฏ็จฎ) 2/ Dough (้บตๅœ˜) 3/ ‘Pineapple’ Topping (่ ่˜ฟๅŒ…็šฎ)
โœ”๏ธ You will need 1 egg + 1 extra egg yolk for the topping in total
โœ”๏ธ I used a small tin (170ml) evaporated milk to substitute the milk (60ml)+ heavy cream (90ml) and and it worked perfectly fine ๐Ÿ™‚
โœ”๏ธ For the ‘Pineapple’ Topping (่ ่˜ฟๅŒ…็šฎ) I used 80g suga, it was still sweet enough
โœ”๏ธ If you don’t have a dough/ baking mixer like me, you can hand knead it! For 10 mins minimum, until it is ‘stretchy’. I did mine for 15 mins+ 5 mins โ–บ
โœ”๏ธ Last but not least, REMEMBER to take some good photos before they are all gone! As we finished them before I got a proper shot… ^ ^” But that’s ok, I have an excuse to make them again sooner! ๐Ÿ˜€
