  • 3 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 3 tbsp powdered milk
  • 1/1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp active dry yeast or instant yeast
  • 1/2 cup lukewarm water or milk
  • 3 tbsp soften butter let butter soften in room temperature
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • If you are using dry active yeast, you need to activate by adding 1/2 cup of lukewarm water and set aside for 5 minutes or when bubbles form. If you are using instant yeast you can directly add to dry ingredients.
  • In a mixing bowl put bread flour, powdered milk, sugar and mix well together. (if you are using instant yeast, you can add it with the rest of the dry ingredients).
  • When the yeast mixture is activated (bubbles forming on top of mixture), add the egg and pour in with the dry ingredients.
  • Using a stand mixer with the hook attachment, mix everything in low speed until well incorporated.
  • Then add butter and salt and continue beating in low speed for 5 mins. When the butter mixed well with the dough continue beating in medium speed until your dough becomes soft and elastic.
  • Removed dough from mixing bowl then place it in another bowl greased with cooking oil and let it rise for 1 hour or depending on the humidity.
  • When the dough doubled in size you know you achieved a good rise. Dump the dough on the table or counter and punch the dough to release the air/gas inside.
    raised dough
  • Divide the dough in two equal parts. Set aside one part and cover with dry kitchen towel.
  • With the other dough, Flatten with a rolling pin and roll into a log shape and cut into small equal pieces (40 grams of dough) or approx. the size of a medium tomato.
    dough rolled
  • Take one piece from the that you just cut and roll it into a shape of an elongated ball. 
    dough with filling
