Apart from the topping this is exactly like the rotiboy I got in Java and Bali (no topping seems the norm in Indonesia). Delicious!!!
Thankyou for the recipe, make it today, and it turn out perfect.
really love the topping! :) however i didn't give 5 stars because the buns are not sweet enough to my taste (yeah, i am really a sweet tooth :P) and because i halved the recipe but the topping was somewhat too much. overall, this recipe is still great.. thanks for sharing, KitchenManiac!
ZOMG ROTIBOY :D :D :D I must say that this brings back great memories of my friends and I mugging for our exams last year. It's a wonder how we didn't put on any weight at all... I'm bookmarking this recipe to try after I get past this year's exams! (PS: they're in 17 days)
I scaled down the recipe to half and loved the fact that the proportions were perfect. (I hate it when I have too much topping or filling and not enough dough!) However, for the intense coffee flavour, do NOT use the scaled down version. I did and the coffee flavour wasn't there at all. Do eat it hot because the topping got a little soft the next morning. Overall, a great hit with the family!
the recipe seems alright, except for the fact that it is called 'Rotiboy' and not 'Rottiboy'. Also, it isnt a singaporean thing, it is a malaysian thing. It's from Penang, Malaysia. www.rotiboy.com
