Chocolate-filled Buns/ Petits pains fourrés au chocolat

Hello dear Readers!!! Hope you’ve been doing well. As you might already know by now, my sweetie daughter loves chocolate in all forms… While some kids (and rarely some adults too) don’t like 70/80% cacao rich black chocolates which might be somewhat bitter for their tastes, my cutie adores to melt them them down heartily..... As I say, she simply is one chocoholic girl…

While I was going through the list of “recipes to try” (or a pile of papers should I say?), this recipe copied down in a paper (God only knows how many months ago…..) that was published here came to my attention. Usually and regularly I do this Sweet bread (my fetish recipe) for breakfast but this time it was these small not-so-sweet buns which vanished in no time…Since they’re small in size and filled with chocolates, this is an ideal bread for kids but also for Saapaattu Ramigal (gourmets) like me, heheehhe

All of us, especially my sweetie loved to tuck in these feathery chocolate buns for breakfast as well as for tea time…. Hope you’d love them too !!!! Un grand merci à Piroulie d' avoir partagé cette magnifique recette !!!

Ingredients for 15 -20 small buns / Ingrédients pour 15-20 petits pains:

2 eggs/ 2 œufs
170 ml warm milk / 170ml lait tiède
500g all purpose flour / 500g farine de blé
1 tsp salt / une cuillère à café de sel
60g brown sugar which I didn’t have, so I used granulated white sugar/ 60g de cassonade 60g sucre blanc
15g vanilla sugar / 2 sachets de sucre vanillé
20g fresh yeast or 1 tbsp dry yeast / 20g levure de boulanger ou 1 c.à table de levure sèche
120g butter / 120g de beurre
100g chocolate chips 150g dark chocolate chips/ 150g de pépites de chocolat noir ou chocolat cassé en petits morceaux

For basting / Pour badigenner:
1 egg yolk/ 1 jaune d’oeuf
7 g vanilla sugar/ 1 sachet de sucre vanillé

Method/ La Méthode:

Prepare all the ingredients and let them come to room temperature (butter, milk and eggs).
Préparer tous les ingrédients et ramenez-les à la température ambiante (le beurre, le lait et les œufs)

In a big bowl, add the eggs, milk, salt, flour, sugar and the yeast (do not let the yeast get directly in contact with he salt) and knead well until the dough becomes smooth and non sticky.
I used a machine for kneading.
Dans un grand bol, ajouter les œufs, le lait, le sel, la farine et la levure en prenant soin de ne pas laisser la levure directement en contact avec le sel. Malaxer et travailler la pâte jusqu’à ce qu’elle devienne souple et non collante. (J’ai utilisé la machine à pain pour le pétrissage)

Add the butter and continue kneading for another 10 to 15 minutes.
Ajouter ensuite le beurre et travailler encore la pâte pendant 10 à 15 minutes.

Cover the bowl a plastic food wrapper and keep in a warm place to let the dough rise for about 1 hour and 30 minutes or until it doubles its volume.
Couvrir avec un plastique alimentaire et laisser reposer pendant une heure trente environ.

Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Préchauffer le four à 180°C.

Add the chocolate chips to the raised dough and mix well. Make small balls or any other forms you like and place them on a lined or greased baking tray. (I’ve used muffin moulds to give them equal shapes)
Ajouter les pépites de chocolat à la pâte et mélanger le tout. Former des petites boules ou d’autres formes de votre choix et déposer sur les plaques de four préalablement couverte avec du papier sulfurisé or beurrée. (J’ai utilisé mes moules à muffins pour leur donner des formes uniformes)

Beat the egg yolk and vanilla sugar and brush the top with that mixture. (You might also want to decorate with pearl sugar)
Badigeonner avec le jaune d’œuf battu et le sucre vanillé ou bien avec du sucre perlé.

Bake for about 12 minutes
Enfourner pendant à peu près 12 minutes.

Enjoy !!! / Bon Appétit !!!!

Cant resist them..they look sos yummy

Jean's Saappadu said...

Hello, thanks to all of you for the kind notes you're leaving.

Dear Nandini,
it all depends whether you're using an active dry yeast or the dry yeast in small granules...
because the fresh dry yeast doesn't need to be dissolved in water whereas the other one needs to be dissolved...
If your yeast mixture doesn’t froth or the dough doesn’t rise very much, make sure that the other ingredients are at the same room temperature too while mixing and keep the dough in a warm place. hope I helped you...

Usha said...

These look just fantastic, would love to have a couple of these right now :-)
