Divide dough into 8 equal portions (approx. 70 g each) and roll into ball. Gently flatten a dough with rolling pin, put a cube of butter in the center of the dough. Wrap the dough, roll into ball and arrange doughs at least 5 cm apart from each other. Repeat this step until finished. Cover loosely with cling film and let dough rise for 60 min.

motion on the buns. Bake for 15 – 20 min (180°C) until golden brown. Serve warm.

💡 To wrap the butter filling into the dough, freeze the butter filling after cutting them into cubes.
💡 Mexican coffee bun is best eaten freshly baked while still warm. You may re-bake the buns for 5 min (180°C) to get the crispy crust texture again.
