Caterpillar Bread (Sausage Filling)

Typical Asian bread. You can easily find this kind of bread in any bakery in Asia. From my personal view, I think bread is the”rich” food in Indonesia. It’s quite pricey. And Indonesian people always say that if our stomach hasn’t touched rice, we won’t get full ๐Ÿ˜› I have to proof them wrong though. Since I’m married, I started to cook and eat less rice. Not because the price is a bit more expensive but I also want to try different recipes from other countries. And I still get full from eating potatoes, noodles, bread, bulgur, salad, etc.

I took the recipe from an amazing baker. I knew her from Indonesian food blogger group in facebook. I must say, she’s an awesome woman. Great baker and photographer too. Visit her blog for more great recipes and you can enjoy her beautiful food photos too ๐Ÿ™‚

My daughter enjoyed the bread a lot (surprisingly!), but hubby isn’t a big fan of savoury bread. He said, it’s weird and wrong ๐Ÿ˜› But it’s ok, it means I can have more for my self ๐Ÿ˜€

This bread is perfect for picnic or day out. It can fill you up quite good. Easy to pack and easy to eat too. And this is also the first time I’m using water roux method. The result is a very moist bread, really fluffy with a good texture. Just how I like it.


  • 600g flour
  • 100g sugar
  • 2 tbsp powdered milk
  • 1 egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 10g dry yeast
  • 200g water roux
  • 180ml warm water
  • 75g unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 pack chicken / beef sausage

water roux:

50g flour

250ml water

How to:

  1. For water roux: In a medium pot with medium heat, put flour and pour water slowly. Mix well until you see no lumps. Because we need a nice and smooth mixture. Cook until it starting to bubbles and take off from the heat. Set aside.
  2. ย In a bowl, put flour, sugar, salt, yeast and milk. Mix well.
  3. Add water roux, water and egg into the flour mixture and knead it well (until nice, smooth and elastic). It will take around 7 to 10 minutes to knead the dough by hands or around 5 minutes with standing mixer.
  4. Add butter and knead some more.
  5. If the dough is still a bit hard, you can add more water (1 tsp at a time), or if it’s too soft, you can add flour (1tsp at a time).
  6. Let it rest for at least 45 minutes or doubled in size.
  7. To make this bread your need 60g dough to make 1 caterpillar bread.
  8. As for the method how to make the shape, you can check it here. It’s in Indonesian, but who cares as long as it has complete step-by-step pictures in it.
  9. After you shaped it, let it rest again for 30 minutes and cover it with plastic wrap. Meanwhile, you can preheat the oven to 200C.
  10. Brush with egg wash, spread a little bit of tomato ketchup and cheese if you like.
  11. Bake it for 15 minutes.

It might look a bit weird if you never eat something like this before, but trust me, you’ll like it! ^_^

    It is looking yummy… ITis good for my baby boy for finger food. isn’t that sugar too much amound. I want to try but sugar for little too much i think. How was it taste savory or little sweet can you tell? thank bye…

    • Yes, I think that works well for finger food. You can of course reduce the amount of the sugar. I also have vegetable chicken nugget, made that for my little girl too. Give it a try and tell me what you think about it ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Good idea for Ramdaan. Its tradition that we neighbours swop cakes or finger foods. This will be something different, looks yum.

    • We do that too in Indonesia. It’s the best time ever. Mostly because the family got to eat together ๐Ÿ™‚

    as well as my hubby, he didn’t agree that savoury bread is better than chocolate bread. Otherwise, i like more savoury ๐Ÿ˜€
