Mexican Coffee Buns aka Rotiboy

I only just heard the this Mexican Coffee Bun is not actually Mexican but Asian. I m not really sure about this, but the website I saw stated that. Cookie dough on bread is actually quite normal here where I m from (Polo buns are an example). My brother used to love these Rotiboy, as we call them, and we would have it at least three times a week for breakfast. Try it, you won t regret it. Ps The amount of coffee in the cookie batter can be adjusted to preference.

  1. Make the bread I used a bread machine and it looks to me that if you throw in all the ingredients and beat the dough for twenty minutes or so let it rest for ten minutes then beat again for another ten minutes then leave it to rise for ten minutes This is rather sketchy so I recommend those who do not have a bread machine to Google on how to make bread and follow that if youre doubtful
  2. Separate bread dough into round lumps of roughly 60g (or your own prefered size and shape)
  3. Let rest for half an hour or until the dough has doubled in size
  4. Meanwhile beat buter and sugar in a bowl until pale and fluffy
  5. Beat in egg and stir in the coffee
  6. Sift the flour into the mixture and stir gently until corporated Do not over work it
  7. Pour the cookie batter into a piping bag with the tip snipped off
  8. Pipe the cookie batter in circles on the bread dough before baking it in preheated oven at 180℃
