伴着洋派红酒 口味,太迷人了...

Soft and chewy texture. love the moist and soft raisin in it.

With this recipe i made 2 wreath ring buns and a Christmas tree buns.

Christmas tree buns with sesame seeds topping. I have seen Mel, Jeannie and Veronica is doing this Christmas Tree buns too.

This is how i do the wreath ring buns...

Made into 2 type of patterns.  2  wreath ring buns and a Christmas tree buns.

Red Wine Raisin Wreath Buns
recipe adapted from : 手感烘焙, 台式经典面包(Handmade Breads)
method: straight dough 

400g bread flour
100g  all purpose flour
60g castor sugar
5 g salt
20g milk powder
5g instant yeast
1 whole egg
150g water
100g grape juice ( i used fresh milk)

50g unsalted butter wine raisin
30g red wine
100g raisin

Soak the raisin in red wine for 30 minutes (i soaked mine overnight in the fridge)

To do:
1. Mix all ingredients A in a mixing bowl into a rough dough. 

2. Add in B and knead into a smooth and elastic dough. Add in C and knead to combine well.
(i do 1 and 2 in my bread maker under mix and knead mode. I only added the red wine raisin into the wreath buns later )

3.  Grease a clean mixing bowl, round the dough round and proof in the bowl for 1 hour or double its size. Cover the bowl with a piece of cling foil.

4.  Punch the dough down to expel the air. Divide the dough into 150g each x 7 portions.
Each portion can make into a wreath ring buns. Please refer to the tutotrial above for making the wreath ring buns.
(i make 2 wreath ring buns of  270g each. For the Christmas tree buns i use 30g each x 17 pieces)

5. Arrange the buns into a greased and lined with parchment paper. Proof for another 50-60 minutes or double its size.
