Anyone have this recipe?

I am looking for a recipe for German Buns (Samoan style). It's a
deep fried dough with a coconut, cooked sugar filling.

We sell them at my in-laws store but we have someone who makes them for us. I am trying to see if I can get the secret recipe from the bakers, but I was just curious and wanted to see if anyone has the recipe.



Don't you love how I ate almost all of it and then remembered to take a!

Here you go Honey. I think this is the recipe you were looking for. Email me for the recipe source.

Recipe for 12 buns:
143g fresh milk
35g egg
25g caster sugar
5g salt
250g bread flour
4g Instant yeast
38g unsalted butter

1 tbsp cooking oil
100g raw sugar or caster sugar (I used 50g caster sugar only)
100g coconut sugar
100g coconut water
2 tbsp plain flour
4 tbsp water
300g shredded coconut

How I made it:

For the dough. Place all the ingredients in the bread machine except butter. Knead until everything combine about 10 minutes. Add in the butter continue the kneading process until it become smooth and elastic. I used 30 minutes for the kneading process. Shape it into a smooth round dough, cover with cling film and let it rest for 60 minutes.

While waiting for the dough. Heat the oil in a wok at low heat, add in raw sugar or caster sugar, coconut sugar until it nearly melted then add the coconut water to prevent sticking. Cook until everything melt then add shredded coconut. Make sure the shredded coconut coated with the melted sugar. Keep stirring to prevent it burn. Mix the water with flour then add into the coconut mixture. Keep stirring until everything well combine and you could smell the fragrant of coconut mixture. It'll start become dry and you'll know it has done. Let it cool down on a plate before use.

Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces of doughs and roll to form 'ball' shapes. Then, cover with cling film let it rest for 15 minutes.

Flatten each dough and wrap in the coconut filling and shape it into smooth round shape then place on a baking tray for 60 minute proofing.

Brush some milk on each doughs and sprinkle some shredded coconut. Bake approximately 18 minutes at 180'C preheated oven until nice and light golden brown.
