[Recipe] Pull-Apart Cheesy Mushroom Wheat Buns Using Breadmaker and Airfryer

July 09, 2016 0 Comments A+ a-

One of my favourite buns recipe is that of the Savoury Cheese Wheat Buns Using Breadmaker and Airfryer. Healthy and easy to bake, it makes for a good breakfast the next morning after a quick warm-up in the toaster.

Recently, I got some small ready-to-eat seaweed packs from my friends who returned from Korea for holidays. Using those seaweed, button mushrooms and Parmesan Grated Cheese, below is my next recipe for sharing. Have fun!

Pull-Apart Cheesy Mushroom Wheat Buns Using Breadmaker & Airfryer
Yields 8 buns


235ml Hokkaido milk (normal milk is okay too) 
1 egg, beaten 
50g unsalted butter (cut into fine slices)
1/2 tsp salt
25g white sugar
100g whole wheat flour (see photo below)
90g top flour/ cake flour
260g plain flour
1 1/4 tsp yeast

Seaweed (salted/ unsalted)
Button mushrooms, sliced
Parmesan grated cheese

1) Put all ingredients in (A) into the baking tin, in the above sequence.

2) Use Setting 10 (Dough mode). 

Tips: We use Philips HD9045, so do adjust this based on your breadmaker.

3) After 1hr 30min (or whatever time your breadmaker requires), the dough will be ready. Remove and lay flat on a board wrapped with baking paper.

4) Punch the dough flat. Gently knead and cover the dough with cling wrap. Let it rest for 15 min.

Tips: It is crucial not to have wind drafts blowing over the dough, or else it will become dry. I save cling wrap by putting the dough into my microwave oven - of course without turning it on! :) 

5) Split the dough into 8 parts. Roll them into your desired shape, meanwhile ensuring that the tops are nice and smooth.

6) Keep the buns in a warm airtight condition until they double in size. That would take approximately 45 min. 

Tips #1: Ensure that there is sufficient space within each baking pan for the bun-doughs to rise. Best to use square baking pans if you can, as the buns will rise to take the baking pans' shape.
Tips #2: To simulate a warm condition, I pre-heated the airfryer (without the buns) at 80 degrees for 5 min to warm it up and placed the baking tray into the airfryer.

7) After 45 min, sprinkle a layer of cheese over the dough, followed by a sheet of seaweed and mushrooms. Bake in airfryer at 150 degrees for 7 min. 

8) Thereafter, add the top layer of cheese.

9) Continue baking at 150 degrees for 8 min.

10) When baked, remove the buns from baking pan immediately and place on a rack. If not eating immediately, cool properly before storing in an airtight container. Enjoy!
