- 3 tablespoons caster sugar

Prep:1hr20min › Cook:15min › Ready in:1hr35min
- Place the bread flour, sugar, salt, milk powder, water, butter, and yeast in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Set on Dough cycle; press Start.
- Remove risen dough from the machine, punch down and turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into 10 equal pieces, and form into rounds. Place the rounds on lightly greased baking trays. Cover with a damp cloth, and let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4.
- In a small bowl, mix together the egg white and 2 tablespoons water; brush lightly onto the baps. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until the baps are golden brown.
These have turned out perfectly. I've tried other recipes with more ingredients such a milk that produce a dough which seems to contract but these stay true to size and shape. I made mine to have with burgers and the recipe produced 7 extra large baps. like other commenters I only used 1.5 tbsp of caster sugar. I forgot about the last stage of glazing or dusting them before baking but they've browned nicely I will definitely use this again, I gave up making rolls for the kids packed lunches as the recipe I used made very small dense buns but this is so easy! - 27 Oct 2012
I made this recipe last night, but didn't make it into baps. I shaped the dough into an oval loaf instead and baked it for 25 minutes. It was delicious! I did take heed of other reviewers and added about half of the sugar and it was a very tasty bread. Served it with a salad and cold sliced pork. Definitely make this again and will also try the baps next time. Can't get these in the US but remember eating them when I was a child. - 15 Aug 2012
Altered ingredient amounts. I doubled the recipe, but only put in 4 tablespoons of sugar. The result was really lovely, but if you don't like a slightly sweet dough, you could reduce the sugar by half eg 800g of flour to 3 tbs of sugar - 22 Sep 2009
