Asian Savoury Buns

I am not a very big fan of breads or buns, but from time to time I like to eat them. In Germany you will have no problem finding inexpensive, fantastic breads - the Germans are just good at making their breads. But, sometimes I also would like to eat the Asian version of sweet savoury buns - which you can't really find here. Some of the variations of buns are a bit like the ones from Ditsch, but the taste of the buns is just a little bit sweeter.

I had never made Asian buns before, I never had to, because I could just buy them from BreadTalk or Bread Story. But now I am far away from those franchise chains, so today I decided to make my own ones... I used a recipe which I found in someone's website a few days ago, unfortunately I don't remember which website it was, so I cannot really give a credit to this person - I only know that she gets her baking ideas from different Japanese, Thai and English cooking books. Whoever you are, Thank you! My breads turned out very soft, yummy and fluffy.


  • 300 g flour
  • 5 g yeast
  • 10 g sugar
  • 6 g salt
  • 30 g butter
  • 1 egg
  • 210 g milk

Mix all ingredients for the dough and let it rest for 20-30 minutes before you add the toppings.

Anything you want - I used tomato sauce, cheese, mayonnaise, wiener sausage, smoked pork chop and oregano.

My wiener sausage is not red because it's organic from Domäne Mechtildshausen - it's without any food colouring.

Glaze mixture
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbs milk

Glaze the buns with the egg and milk mixture before you put them in the oven, so that the buns will have a glossy look after being baked.

My sausage bun looks a bit broken, but my other ones look quite nice, so I am happy with the results.

Very nice soft texture of bread...!

By the way, I just bought two bunnies yesterday. They are the cutest...! Willkommen zu Hause, Bruno und Josephine...! Ich liebe euch :)

    @Anncoo - Thanks, they are adorable, I know :). The original recipe asked for bread flour, but I used normal flour and it's okay - the texture was still very nice.
