Gooey chocolate buns.

I have been wanting to make bread with the concept of chocolate fondants in mind.
soft and spongy on the outside but warm and oozy in the centre.

so i decided to make these little cute buns!
i like how round they are.

this time i used chocolate chips for the bread filling,
but you can use all sorts.
like nutella (put nutella in fridge and use teaspoon to scoop out balls)
or cheese
or... kaya
or red bean paste.
anything that you fancy!

Gooey Chocolate Buns


1 cup warm milk
1 egg
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups bread flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
2 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast

semi-sweet chocolate chips for filling

1 egg yolk mixed with 2 tbs water for egg wash

1. Place all the ingredients in order into a bread machine and put on dough setting.
2. After the cycle is complete, take the dough out and oil it lightly
3. Knead lightly and divide dough into 12 pieces.
4. Flatten each piece of dough and place about 10 chocolate chips in the centre. Scrunch up the edges to cover the chocolate chips and roll into a neat ball.
5. Place each ball scunched side down on baking tray lined with baking paper
6. Allow the buns to rise in a warm place for 40 minutes or until doubled in size.
7. Brush each bun lightly with egg wash (egg yolk and water)
8. Bake in a 176 degree preheated oven for 12-15 minutes. Cover with alluminium foil at the 10 minute mark to prevent a thick crust from forming.
