Put bread flour, sugar, yeast, egg and water into a bowl and mix well with a spatula.
Add bread flour, salt and butter into the bowl and mix until a dough is formed.
Knead the dough until smooth and elastic. Shape the dough into a ball. Put the dough into a bowl (seam side down). Cover with cling wrap and leave to rise at 40°C for 30 minutes (until doubled in size).
Do the finger test. Punch the dough down. Divide the dough into 8 equal portions and shape each piece into a ball. Cover with cling wrap and leave for 10 minutes.
Shape each ball into a smooth ball and put them onto a baking sheet. Allow enough space between each for spreading. Cover with cling wrap loosely and leave to rise at 40°C for 30 minutes (until doubled in size).
To make egg wash: Mix the egg and water. Brush the dough surface with egg wash. Bake in preheated oven at 200°C for 8 minutes or until just golden. After having baked for about 5 minutes, you can rotate the baking tray to help the buns get baked evenly. Leave to cool on a wire rack.
