Ingredients

Ingredients : Starter dough

  • 105 g bread flour
  • 45 g plain flour
  • 12 g castor sugar
  • 3 g instant yeast (1/2 tsp + 1/4 tsp)
  • 120 g water

Ingredients : Main dough

  • 105 g bread flour
  • 45 g plain flour
  • 48 g sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 12 g milk powder
  • 45 g egg
  • 27 g water
  • 36 g unsalted butter, softened

Filling

  • 160g cream cheese
  • 40g sugar
  • 48pcs (4pcs per bun) Dried cranberries, soaked in water for 30mins to soften
  • 24pcs (2pcs per bun) Raisins, soaked in water for 30mins to soften

Steps

  1. Mix and combine all the stater dough ingredients together. Allow to sit in a warm place to rise till it looks like "honeycomb". (It took me 2 hours).
  2. In a mixer with a dough hook, combine the above with main dough ingredients except butter, knead till it is shinny and non-sticky. Add in butter, knead till it is shinny and pliable.
  3. Rest the dough till it doubles in size. ( for my own reference only: about 60 minutes).
  4. Beat cream cheese and sugar till creamy and light, set aside. If not using immediately, keep it in the fridge.
  5. After dough has risen, punch down gas and without resting dough ,divide it into 9 equal portions and roll each into round shape.
  6. Spread the cream cheese filling (appx.1tbsp), sprinkle cranberries and raisins on top (do not put too many), seal the dough, place on the paper cup, set aside to rest for 40mins.
  7. Don't need to apply egg wash. Bake at pre-heated 160c for 25mins at lower rack / 3rd lower rack.
  8. Happy trying
