Ham & Cheese Ring Bread/Hotdog Bun

I was inspired by Dailydelicious to make this bread. This was on my to bake list for a few months. Finally get to bake it last night.

I learnt bread making few years ago but last night was only my 3rd attempt in bread making. I nearly forgotten how to do it. However, it's still turn out pretty good.

The bread was yummy and definitely going to do it again. Though it was a bit overbaked on the top due to high temperature but it still quite moist & soft inside. I should bake at 180 deg c instead of 200 deg c. I didn't use the recipe from Dailydelicious for the dough. My recipe was from Richard's Baking Class - Assorted Buns.

This recipes can make 2 ring bread. I made one and the balance was rolled into 6 hotdog buns as I didn't have enough ham.

60g Sugar
12.5g Yeast
1/2 Eggs

2. Add in (B) and beat for 10 mins unitl the dough is smooth.
3. Leave aside, cover with dry cloth for about 30 mins or till it double in size.
4. Cut half of the dough, gently press down the dough with a rolling pin and roll it into a rectangle, about 25x25 cm.
5. Brush mayonnaise over the dough then scatter cheddar cheese all over and place the ham on top.
