Sourdough sugar cheese bun

This recipe is an adaptation from Corner Cafe, due to a need to use up sourdough discard.

Sourdough sugar cheese bun

  • 200 grams strong white bread flour
  • 150 grams unbleached cake flour
  • 300 grams 100% hydration sourdough discard (less than 5 days old)
  • 15 grams milk powder

  • 6 grams salt
  • 3 grams instant yeast
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 75 grams water
  • 50 grams unsalted butter, softened


  • Coarse sugar
  • Laughing cow cheese cubes
  • Milk for glazing
  1. Mix all ingredients except butter into a mixing bowl. Knead until a soft dough forms (medium gluten development).
  2. Add butter and knead until window pane stage.
  3. Proof in a lightly greased bowl for 60 minutes or until doubled in size.
  4. Tip dough onto a lightly floured counter and knead lightly to remove gas.
  5. Divide into 12 portions. Roll into a ball and rest for 10 minutes.
  6. Shape dough as per your desire. Proof on a lightly greased baking tray for 60 minutes, or until doubled in size.
  7. Preheat oven to 190 C.
  8. Glaze with milk and sprinkle sugar. Score bun and place cheese cubes on the bun.
  9. Bake for 20-25 minutes until light brown in color.

These buns are delicious! Soft and light with a wheat fragrance and a light crunch from the coarse sugar.
