2

Fit the mixer with a dough hook and get ready to knead.

3

Add in water and an egg into the dry ingredients and start kneading with medium speed.

4

Keep mixing for about 10 minutes until dough is formed.

5

Add in the butter and mix on high speed for another 5 – 10 minutes, the dough will break apart when fat is added and will eventually combine to become a smooth and shinny dough.

6

Shape the dough into a ball and place in a clean bowl, cover with cling film and place in a warm area for 30 – 45 minutes to proof.

7

Once the dough has doubled in size, punch down to release air and flatten into a disc and then sprinkle with chocolate pieces, roll the dough up and place into a baking pan and let proof for the second time for about 30 – 40 minutes.

8

Preheat an oven to 180 degrees Celsius for 30 minutes. Insert the tray into the oven and bake for 30 – 40 minutes until the bun is golden brown on the surface.
