Potato bread rolls

Potato bread rolls

My cousin recently shared a few videos of wool roll breads on YouTube. These are really pretty rolls, so I decided to try making them today. 

I made them using my TZ potato bread recipe since I’ve so many left from a 10lbs bag (only $1.87), filled them with Nutella+malted milk powder* for the wool roll bread and meat floss for the remaining few.

Makes 12 - 15 buns

180°C 18 - 20 mins


  • Tangzhong
  • 25g TZ Flour
  • 125gTZ milk


  • Dough
  • 380g All purpose flour 
  • 130g Potatoes, mashed
  • 3g Instant yeast
  • 50g Butter, unsalted
  • 1 Large egg
  • 30g Milk, cold
  • 1 tbsp light olive oil 
  • 40g Sugar
  • 8g Salt

*malted milk powder: back in Malaysia, we love using Horlicks or Milo in our recipes. I’d to settle on using Ovaltine’s malted milk powder (no Horlicks in my local stores here in ON) with Nutella for the filling today.

Very nice, I've been seeing bakers post variations of this bread on IG.  Yours looks great too.

Apron’s video got more views I guess. Her recipe is a basic sweet dough while Kochtopf’s uses strong flours.
