Cheese Buns


Recipe Info

  • Yield : 16
  • Prep Time : 20m
  • Cook Time : 12m
  • Ready In : 32m


  • 250ml hot water
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 sachet instant dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 60ml Pure Cooking Oil
  • 750g Plain Flour
  • 125g mozzarella, cut into cubes
  • 125g cheddar cheese, grated
  • 60g butter, melted


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 190°C, and prepare a baking tray with baking paper.

Step 2

In a bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a dough hook combine the hot water, sugar and yeast. Let sit and rise until puffy, about 10 minutes.

Step 3

Add the garlic powder, Fine Salt and Pure Cooking Oil and begin mixing on low. Add the Plain Flour 1 cup at a time and mix until you have a smooth soft dough, about 5 minutes.

Step 4

Remove the dough hook and pat the dough into a ball. Lightly grease a bowl and place the dough in it, cover with a dishtowel and set in a warm place until the dough doubles, about an hour.

Step 5

Divide the dough into 16 even pieces.

Step 6

Pull each little piece of dough apart and stuff with a few cubes of mozzarella, and then close in the dough.

Step 7

Place the buns on the prepared sheet pan, and brush generously with melted butter (there will be some left over, set it aside.)

Step 8

Sprinkle the grated cheese over the top of each bun.

Step 9

Bake the buns for about 12 minutes, until pale golden on top. When the buns come out, brush them with the remaining melted butter and serve warm.
