Ya, of course you can use a bread machine for kneading. For my breadmachine, I press
"10" for the kneading part and let it proof there. After proofing, you can take it out and start weighing and scaling.

First time at bread making. So happy it turned out so well. I used the fluted tart mould and the end result looks like a mushroom with a crispy top and soft inside.Thanks again Lucy for this wonderful recipe. My daughters loves it and its definitely a keeper.

Hi Aunty,
Tks for this recipe!

Can I substitute milk powder with liquid fresh milk instead? If yes, how much? As I dun drink milk powder, its quite costly to just buy 1 tin for baking only.

What brand of milk powder do you use? Can I use low-fat milk powder or infant formula for baking? Will it affect the taste?

Tks! :)

yochana said...

Hi anonymous,

You can totally omit the milk powder. You can substitute 1/2 milk and 1/2 water to get a more tasty bun.

gd evening aunty

can u pls clarify what u mean by 1/2 milk and 1/2 water? Tks!

Aunty Yochana said...


It means 50% water + 50% milk.


mj said...

hi aunty

get it now, tk u :)

hani said...

aunty yochana, is it okay if i omit th bread improver? how bad would it affect the bun?

Aunty Yochana said...

hi hani,

no it will not affect the texture. You can omit it ...


hani said...

owh alright..thank you for your kind reply.

i am going to make it. i'll let you know how it turns out:)

hani said...

i made yesterday and they taste goood. my dad loved it so much he did not want to share.:)

but i screwed it up somewhere though. the bun was sooo soft when it was warm but hardened up after that. do you have any idea why?

is it because i put in cold butter inside?would it help if i melt it?because im afraid that my butter was not so well-combined with the rest of the mixture.

Aunty Yochana said...

hi hani

cold butter is even better for the buns...

I think you need to add in extra liquid when kneading the dough.
