DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Dissolve 1 teaspoon of the sugar and the yeast in the warmed milk.
  • Sieve the flour into a large bowl or Kitchen Aid bowl and stir in the sugar.
  • Make a well in the centre and add the beaten egg, melted butter and the milk/yeast mixture.
  • Mix the ingredients to form a dough that no longer sticks to the bowl.
  • Knead by hand on a lightly floured board, or using the dough attachment on the Kitchen Aid, until the dough is smooth and shiny.
  • Place the dough in a lightly oiled bowl and cover with plastic film.
  • Leave in a warm place for an hour until the dough has doubled in size.
  • Return the dough to the floured board and punch down using your fists.
  • Divide the dough into 32 equal pieces and roll each into a ball shape.
  • Oil a 10" round cake tin with sides at least 2" high.
  • Pack the dough balls into the tin and leave in a warm place for a second rising.
  • Again, the dough should double in size.
  • Pour the coconut milk over the buns until it reaches the top of the buns.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 35 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.
  • Best served warm.
