Well, it started out okay…
A while back I posted a recipe for Baked Red Bean buns. I’ve been wanting to follow that up with this post because I use the same dough recipe to make the buns but the filling can be changed up.
There is a lot you can with that basic sweet dough recipe. As you know, besides the red bean buns, I’ve also just rolled them up and wrapped them around hot dogs to make hot dog buns. And I’ve even gotten some pork soong (pork floss) and stuffed that in the dough.
Remember a few weeks back, when I made some baked red bean buns. After I wrote that post, I started flipping through my Alex Goh “World of Bread” book again just to see if there was something else there that I could bake. And of course, there were several that I wanted to try.

If you’ve ever visited an Asian bakery, you’d have noticed that the tables are predominantly covered with bread-y pastries.
Baked Red Bean Buns
Some are savory and others sweet. Most of the fillings are very common to Asians, like red bean paste, lotus paste, and custard for sweet buns or charsiew, curry chicken, pork/meat floss, and sausage for savory buns. I especially enjoy things that have red bean filling in it.
