To get a strong rise and a light texture to these buns it is worth using a very strong bread flour. Method Place all of the ingredients except the honey into a mixer with a dough hook attached. Mix to a soft dough and knead for 5 minutes. If mixing by hand, put the flour, sugar, salt, oatmeal, spice, apple and coconut milk powder into a bowl. Sprinkle on the yeast and mix to a soft dough with the oil and apple juice. Knead on a floured board for 10 minutes. Split the dough into 12 equal balls and roll each of them out into a thin rectangle. Roll the dough up similar to a swiss roll and place in a greased bun tin. Leave to prove until double in size. Preheat the oven to 190°C (fan 170°C, gas mark 5). Bake for 20 minutes and glaze with maple syrup while still warm.

Just make sure you cut your apple really small otherwise it escapes during the kneading process. My buns definitely didn't look as pretty as the ones in the picture but they taste amazing. I'll be making them over and over again Leave Your Thoughts Your Rating 5 stars4 stars3 stars2 stars1 star Email Your Review Ingredients Metric 450g Allinson's Strong White Bread Flour This is versatile, everyday bread flour with a high protein content which helps to make the perfect loaf.
