Double Chocolate Cheese Buns

I had some fabulously delicious bread at Duke Bakery. I decided to make my own version at home. 

This time, I added chocolate chips and cream cheese to make Double Chocolate Cheese Buns. It's soft and fluffy and stayed so even on the third day!

Double Chocolate Cheese Buns
makes 9 buns

For the Bread Dough
200g Milk
290g Bread flour
10g Cocoa powder
30g Sugar
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Instant yeast
30g Unsalted butter

For the Filling
50g Chocolate chips 
70g Cream cheese, cut into smaller cubes

For the Bread Dough
1. Place all ingredients into the pan except butter based on the sequence listed above or by following your breadmaker manufacturers' instructions regarding the order of liquid/dry ingredients.
(I'm using Zojirushi breadmaker. I placed all the wet ingredients first, followed by the dry ingredients. Make a dent at the centre of the flour and pour the yeast in the dent last, making sure the yeast does not touch the liquid, sugar and salt.)

2. Make the selection for 'Pasta Dough' setting on your breadmaker.
(For my Zojirushi breadmaker, I chose the 'Cookie/Pasta Dough')

3. Press start and the machine will start kneading the dough. The machine will beep after a few minutes. Press start to continue kneading.
4. After the machine has finished its course of kneading under 'Pasta Dough' setting, make the selection for 'Dough' setting.

5. Press start and the machine will start kneading the dough after resting for 15 minutes. Add in the butter during this resting stage.

6. Let the breadmaker do the rest.

7. When the bread dough is proofed, the machine will beep to signal the end of the 'Dough' function. Remove dough from the pan, punch it down and divide into 9 portions.

8. Roll up each dough portion into round balls and rest for 5 minutes.

For the Bun
9. Flatten each ball into a disc (can either use a pastry rolling pin or the palm of your hands) and put the chocolate chips and cream cheese cubes in the middle, wrap and seal. Put in a 9" square tin (you can also put in individual paper bread casing) and let it proof for another hour.  

10. Spray the bun with water.

11. Bake in preheated oven at 200ºC for 15 minutes.

12. When the buns are done, remove from the oven immediately and let it cool on a wire rack.

  6. Can I use milo instead of cocoa powder and replace butter with olive oil? thanks

    1. Hi Amanda, you can use milo instead of cocoa powder. What you'll get is milo buns. :)
      Olive oil has been used for bread making so I think you should be able to replace it with butter since it will also be healthier. But you may not have the buttery smell from the baked buns. :)

  7. Hi no need egg for this recipe ?

    1. Hi Yee Fong,
      You don't need eggs for this bread recipe.
