1

Grease a baking tin measuring 19 cm x 19 cm x 5 cm and set it aside.

2

In a Thermomix® mixing bowl, combine 180 g cold milk, 3 g dry yeast, 25 g caster sugar, 250 g bread flour, 25 g milk powder, and 3 g salt. Knead the mixture for knead | 3 min.

3

Add 20 g unsalted butter and 5 g honey to the mixture. Continue kneading for an additional knead | 3 min. Once done, transfer the dough onto a pastry mat. Wrap the dough with the pastry mat like a parcel and let it proof for 45 minutes or until it has doubled in size. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, mix together 20 g white sesame seeds and 20 g caster sugar. In another bowl, mix well the 20g honey and 20g water.

4

After the dough has proofed, punch it down to deflate it. Divide the dough into 8 equal portions and shape each portion into a ball. Allow these dough balls to rest for 15 minutes.

5

Roll out each dough ball into a flat rectangle, approximately 8 cm x 12 cm in size. Roll each rectangle up tightly from the shorter side to form a log. Repeat this process with all of the dough balls.

6

Cut each dough log in half, and then dip the cut side into the honey-water mixture (made by mixing 20 g honey and 20 g water) and then into the white sesame seeds and caster sugar mixture.

7

Arrange the dough pieces, cut-side down, in rows of four in the prepared baking tin. Cover them with either a pastry mat or cling film and allow them to proof for 30-45 minutes or until they have doubled in size. Preheat your oven to 180°C .

8

Before baking, brush each bun with some egg wash and sprinkle white sesame seeds on top. Place small cubes of unsalted butter in between the buns.

9

Bake the buns at 180°C (356°F) for 30-35 minutes, or until they turn light golden brown. Once baked, transfer the buns to a cooling rack. Use a pastry brush to lightly brush the bun surface with the honey-water mixture. Allow the buns to cool completely before serving. Enjoy your Honey Sesame Pull-Apart Buns!
