Sweet Cheese Buns

3 ½ cups all purpose flour
1 cup milk
2 tablespoon milk powder
½ cup water
1 egg
3 tablespoon sugar
4 tablespoon oil
4 tablespoon melted butter
1 ½ teaspoon instant yeast
½ teaspoon salt
8 portions kiri cheese (or any cheese of your choice)
1 egg for egg wash
For the sugar syrup
1 cup sugar
¾ cup water
1 table spoon honey
1 teaspoon vanilla essence

  • Melt the sugar in water and allow it to boil until thin syrup is formed.
  • Add the honey and vanilla essence to it.
  • Mix and allow it to cool and keep aside.
  • Sieve the flour and mix it with the milk powder, sugar, yeast and salt.
  • To this add the oil, butter and egg, and mix well with your finger tips.
  • Add the milk and knead well.
  • Add water little by little (only as much needed) and knead well until you get soft dough.
  • Apply a little oil over the dough, and cover with a cling film and keep aside for 1 hour.
  • The dough will double in size. Punch the dough and divide it into 16 portions.
  • Stretch out each portion and keep half of each kiri cube into each portion and roll into balls such that the cheese is enclosed in each ball.
  • Place these balls on a buttered pan and keep aside covered for half an hour more.
  • Beat one egg with 1 teaspoon milk.
  • Brush the top of each ball with this egg wash and bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until the buns are nice golden colour on top.
  • Remove from oven and pour the prepared sugar syrup on the hot buns.
  • Leave the buns to cool and attain a glaze on top.
  • Sweet cheese buns are ready!!!
*Pour only the required amount of syrup on the buns. Pour less for less sweet buns.
