Milo Coffee Roti Boy / Mexican Coffee Buns - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Wanna to bake coffee roti boy but dunno which recipe to use?

I hear you.

Before baking these super yummy Milo coffee buns, I have been Googling around and found many coffee roti boy recipes at here, here, here, here and here but I choose to recreate my own less-fuss coffee roti boy recipe that doesn't need any overnight sponge or Tangzhong because I know my straightforward bread recipe has never fail me!

Plus, I can show you how to bake these buns with 1) real butter filling that won't disappear after baking and 2) crispy rich coffee topping that is always thin, smooth, uniform and perfect!

So these are my roti boys... It is as perfect as what it is! I didn't have to make them look sexier or any better by smearing any extra butter to melt on them...

Cheesy Grilled Flatbread - Vegetarian café-style food and it's YUMMY!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

At a glance, our summer 2020/2021 is ending soon and I have been on a mostly-meatless diet for the past 1 year.

Mostly-meatless? LOL! I'm not a vegetarian but I have not been eating meat or seafood everyday except for two meals a week when we have our weekly salmon and pan-fried dumpling dinners.

I do this because I love animals and I want to maintain environment sustainability. Having said that, I would still prepare and cook meat and seafood for my husband and son because they love their steak, prawns and chicken too much. Eventually, we have all agreed to consume as minimal meat as possible, eating the more sustainable chicken more often and less beef if possible. And we always finish eating all of our food, not wasting anything that is edible.

So whenever I'm in a mood of encouraging my meat-loving husband and son to eat vegetarian food, I will try to cook something nice and unusual...

And I have managed to impress them with these meatless cheesy grilled flatbread.

Super Soft Chewy Mocha Coffee Hot Cross Buns

Craving for hot cross buns lately?

Absolutely YES for us!

My hot cross buns baking season has already started even before Chinese New Year baking! Thus, I'm relieved now that my Chinese New Year baking season is officially over so that I can concentrate baking more hot cross buns...

Apart from the traditional hot cross buns with dried raisin or sultana, I have seen many variations of hot cross buns selling in supermarkets and bakeries these days. And I have been trying to bake my best mocha version. Guess what? It hasn’t been easy!

And this is the best Coffee Hot Cross Buns that I have baked so far...
