Egg Free 45 Minutes Chocolate Buns – #Breadbakers

For this month’s Bread Bakers, the theme was Breads with Cocoa, Cacao or Carob in any form. Our host Ruchik Randhap wanted us to bake any yeasted bread with cocoa in any form. There were so many ideas rushing through my mind but this buns finally won. I tweaked my 40 minutes burger buns recipe to make a white chocolate filled chocolate bun. I added some extra sugar to the dough and filled the bun with white chocolate chips. I thought the chocolate would melt and become gooey but it retained its shape. So next time I will be adding white chocolate ganache instead.

What ever the buns look like, they were so delicious. The rustic look is because I didn’t knead the dough for more than two minutes. But if you want it to be perfect, then knead it a little more. You can even add some chocolate chips to the dough to make it more chocolaty. My daughter loved these buns and for two days, this was her snacks. Keep it in an airtight box and they stay fresh fro two days. For those who are health conscious, use wheat flour instead of maida. You may need some extra water to knead. When I make some thing with cocoa powder, I have started adding instant coffee powder to enhance the flavour. You can just omit it if you don’t like coffee. Once the buns come out of oven, brush them with butter or ghee for a shiny top.
