Bacon Bread Rose (培根玫瑰餐包)



I have not been sharing buns recipes for quite a while and since I found a good dough recipe, I have a tendency to use the same dough to churn out different type of sweet or savoury bread or buns.. My basic dough is in this post and it will be reproduced here too with slight amendment.: Basic Bread Dough Recipe And Plum Blossom Sausage Buns (梅花香肠面包). In the above post, there will be more sweet bread shaping.


Many members have tried this sweet bread dough and like it .. They like it because it is a straight dough method, fast and simple. It yields a soft bread if properly knead, proofed, baked and kept.. The dough is very easy to handle and especially good for first time bread makers..


What I can share is that this bread dough was used by some Taiwanese bakery for all the sweet buns sold in the shop and me too love the texture of this dough very much.


Today what I am sharing is a savoury bun recipe using bacon.. My kids loves bacon and that prompt me to prepare this. This bread goes well with mayonnaise and some green herbs like spring onion.


Without the specially prepared sweetened mayonnaise, your bread can be rather salty as bacons is salty by nature.


The size of the bun is very small.. As such baking time, proofing time are very short. it is soft and fluffy and I am confident it will suit most readers who is asking for a change in their daily bread rolls.



Servings: Prepared about 20 mini buns


Bread dough

  • 250 grams of bread flour
  • 50 grams of sugar
  • 2 grams of salt
  • 5 grams of instant dry yeast
  • 15 grams of butter (melted) or cooking oil
  • 30 grams of eggs
  • 110 grams of plain water
  • 10 grams of milk powder


  • 10 pieces of bacon
  • 1 sprig of spring onion or other herbs such as basil, coriander or celery (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon of condensed milk (not in picture)




  • In a mixing  bowl, mixed all the ingredients  together. Use a spoon to slightly stir it until it form a sticky dough. Use the dough hook in the machine to beat the dough at medium to low speed (speed 2 in Kenwood Chef or Kitchen Aid) for about 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, change from medium to high speed (speed 4 kin Kenwood Chef or Kitchen Aid) for about 7 minutes until the dough is smooth and leaves the side of the mixing bowl.  (bread machine can also be used for kneading function) Transfer the dough out to a lightly flour surface.

  • Lightly knead the dough for 1-2 minutes and let it proof until double in size. Cover the dough with a wet towel or clingy wrap. Proofing time will depends on the weather but it will take about more or less 30 minutes in Singapore weather.

  • After first proofing, divide the dough into 10 equal pieces. Take one dough, roll it flat following the length of the bacon (mine is about 24 cm x 10 cm) . Roll the dough up like rolling a Swiss roll. Shape it as even as possible and seal the edges.

  • Use a sharp knife to cut the dough into two equal halves. Use the palm to lightly pressed it. and let it proof until double in size.

  • Pre-heat the oven to 180 degree Celsius.

  • Once the dough have proofed to double in size, egg wash the dough (one egg yolk plus 5 drops of water, stir well, sift and use) evenly and bake in the pre-heated oven of 180 degree Celsius for 10-15 minutes.

  • For mayonnaise dressing, add one tablespoon of condensed milk to 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise. Stir until well combined.  If there is no condensed milk, icing sugar can be used.

  • When the bread is completely cooled, pipe the mayonnaise on top of the bread and sprinkled with some chopped spring onion or other herbs.  Unfinished bread shall be kept in air tight container to conserve moisture.



This is the nice bread and as expected, my kids fight for it and they finish after hours of preparation.


Hope you like the post today. Cheers and have a nice day.

    • I am unsure what you are referring. Mayonnaise plus condensed milk is the dressing to be piped on top of the baked bread. Eggs is for egg washing prior sending to the oven.
