The convenient packet of Leo Kee's coffee pork soft bones from the company newly launched  LEO KEE Zi Char Meat Series, cut down on the time to prepare the very soft and juicy pulled pork filling for the sandwich. Just give about a 3-minute steaming to the thaw coffee pork soft bones, pull out the meat using a fork, mix the pulled pork with some gravy, and the filling is ready 😊

If you have the time, baked some coffee milk buns to make a full coffee flavour sandwiches.

A bowl of store-bought mixed vegetable salad, an apple and a mini cucumber, and you are ready to prepare a "good-looking", flavourful, colourful, and delicious pulled pork sandwich

Coffee Milk Bun

Yield: 8 long buns 
Raw dough weight: 535g
Baking temperature: Preheat oven to 200℃ for 10 minutes, bake at lower rack, at 190℃ for 5 minutes, lower to 170℃ for 13 minutes, off oven and bake for about 2 minutes.

200g bread flour
25g superfine wholegrain flour/plain flour
40g raw sugar
3g instant dry yeast
5g full cream milk powder

2g instant coffee powder
5g hot water
15g evaporated milk
10g condensed milk
1/2 tsp coffee oil, optional

40g natural yeast/sourdough, 100% hydration*
29g yudane dough^
110g low fat coffee milk
10g beaten egg
15g cold water, to be added depending on dough condition

2g low sodium salt

30g unsalted butter, softened

some beaten egg as egg wash before baking

Combine Ingredient B in a small glass

* 40g natural yeast can be replaced by 20g each of bread flour and water + 1/8 tsp instant dry yeast. Let the mixture stands for about 1 hour or more till double in volume, before use. You can also keep the mixture in the fridge overnight and thaw it for 1 hour before use.

^ 29g yudane dough is prepared by combining 15g of bread flour with 15g of very hot or boiling water into a sticky dough. Wrap the yudane dough in cling wrap, and cool down before use. Use a silicone spatula to scrape out the sticky yudane dough from the cling wrap.

1. Knead the dough following your preferred method. 
For my method, you can refer to my recipe Yudane Milk Bread. After kneading the dough to window pane stage, 
Mix Ingredient A in a mixing bowl.

Add Ingredient B and C, to Ingredient A.

Combine into a dough ball and rest 15 minutes

Knead using electric hand mixer fitted with dough hooks.
Add Ingredient D.

When the dough becomes smoother, knead in Ingredient E.

Knead till the ingredients are well combined.

Perform about 400 sets of "slapping & folding" till the
dough can easily pull to a length of about 30cm.

Or reaching window pane.

2. Shape the dough into a ball and rest in a large mixing bowl. Spray some water over, cover with a lid, and let the dough undergo first proofing for about 60 minutes.

End of 60-minute proofing πŸ‘‡

3. Turn out the dough onto a floured worktop. Deflate the dough and divide into 8 portions.

Shape the dough into 8 balls, cover and let them rest for about 15 minutes.

4. Take a dough ball and roll out into a round-ends "rectangle".

Flip over the dough, and fold in the two long edge towards the middle.

Slightly roll flat the dough, and do a second set of folding towards the middle.

Pinch to seal the joining edges.

And shape into a cigar shape.

Flatten the dough slightly,

and arrange the shaped dough over a non-stick baking tray. Spray some water over, and proof about 40 minutes in closed cold oven.

5. Remove the tray of shaped dough from the oven, and start to preheat the oven to 200℃ for about 10 minutes.
End of second proofing πŸ‘‡

While waiting, brush egg wash over the shaped dough.

Snip some shallow cut over the shaped dough to create pattern. This step is optional.

6. Bake at lower rack, lower the oven temperature to 190℃ after closing the oven door, and bake for 5 minutes. Further lower to 170℃ and bake for 13 minutes, finally turn off oven and bake for about 2 minutes.

Transfer the baked buns to wire rack to cool down.
