I used the same ingredients and method as in abovementioned butter rolls, but added sausages for the filling. Then, eggwash the surface and sprinkle some sesame seeds to garnish before baking.

Wow, I really used my hand power to knead buns and rolls dough last night. At first I only planned to make choco buns but while waiting for the buns to proof I glanced thru again my collections of breads and buns recipes. Came accross this easy butter rolls recipe which I hand-copied from somewhere..I don`t remember, that I finally ended up making butter rolls and sausage rolls too.(To whoever the contributor is, thanx very much...I have this habit of hand-copying recipes from various sources and never bother to take note of the contributor..tuleh punn cincai-bocai mcm doktor tak bertauliah...)
Something to cheer this morning table for breakfast...( Not to say that the rest of other mornings were dull ).... Kidz were delighted that they helped themselves with our very own homemade buns and rolls...later made their own breakboxes to school.
Well, kneading dough manually wasn`t that bad actually and pretty good for your arms and hands muscles exercise. You won`t know the satisfactions lies behind it until you do it but believe me..once you see the buns and rolls out of the oven..all is worthwhile making. But if it doesn`t turn out the way it supposed to be , that doesn`t mean the end of your bread making world..treat it as an invaluable experience where you can learn the rights and nots. Enjoy your day....
