Mexican Coffee Bun

A delicious bun that is baked after the icing is done !!
Ingredients you need for making the bun: Bread flour,Sugar,Salt,Yeast,Butter,Water and Egg

Start with adding 2 Cups of Bread flour

3 Tbsp of Sugar

and 1/2 tsp Salt

Sift it all together in to a bowl

Then  add 1 1/2  tsp of Dry yeast ..

and mix it together.

Now crack an egg..

and add it to the dry ingredients.

Next add 1/4 cup of Water

and 2 Tbsp of room temperature Butter

Mix it by hand to thoroughly combine the ingredients.

Next lightly oil the bowl and place the dough in the bowl.Close it and let it sit and rise for an hour.

When the dough is rising we can make the icing .
And for the icing you will need Butter,Powdered Sugar,Eggs,All purpose flour,Instant Coffee and Water

Add 7 Tbsp of room temeperature Butter in to a bowl.

To this add 1/2 cup of Powdered sugar

2 Eggs
and 3/4 cup All purpose flour.Mix it together until just combine.

Next add 2 Tbsp of Instant Coffee to 1 Tbsp of water..

and add it to the icing.

And now let's get back to the dough.This is the dough after 1 hour

Divide them in to eight evenly-sized balls of dough.

Then roll in to small circles.

Next, place a small cube of butter in the center of each  dough

and wrap it up.

Make sure you seal it tightly.You dont want the butter to leak while baking.

Now the fun part ! Transfer the icing in to a piping bag or a Ziploc bag with a small hole cut into one corner and start piping the icing in circles around the bun.

Cover almost half of the bun with icing .Don't worry if the piping is not perfect..It's all going to melt in a few minutes ..
Now bake it at 400 degree F for 15 minutes.
And there it is.THE MEXICAN COFFEE BUN !!
The icing is all melted and covered the entire bun..

It is crispy on the outside ..

And soft and fluffy and buttery on the inside

Eat them right out of the oven !
