Chelsea Buns

The advent of the Breadmaker has certainly helped making bread, a breeze, taking away the tedious task of mixing and kneading the dough.  I used the Breadmaker to churn out this dough for these Chelsea Buns.

Recipe for Chelsea Buns

Ingredients :
Dough Cycle - 1 hr.30 mins
  • 1 egg + water to make up 1 cup - 250 ml
  • Butter/Margarine - 3 Tbsp
  • Salt - 1/2 Tsp
  • High Protein Flour - 410 gm
  • Skim Milk powder - 2 Tbsp
  • Brown Sugar - 3 Tbsp
  • Yeast - 2 Tsp
Filling :
  • 1 oz Butter/Margarine
  • 1 oz Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 2 oz Sultanas/Raisins
  • Additional Brown Sugar for sprinkling, before baking
Method :
  1. At the end of the dough cycle, turn the dough onto a floured surface, knock back the dough to expel some air.
  2. Roll or stretch it out into an oblong.  Spread the butter over the top 2/3 of the dough and then fold from the bottom up, in 3 folds, making sure there's butter between each fold.
  3. Roll out again to about 18 ins. square, sprinkle with the sugar, cinnamon, sultanas and roll up like a Swiss Roll.
  4. Cut the roll into twelve, 1.1/2 in. slices and put them close together, cut side down in a lightly greased 8 in. square tin.
  5. Cover with a damp cloth or a lightly greased cling film, set in a warm place to prove for about 20 to 30 minutes, or until double in bulk.
  6. Sprinkle with more brown sugar, and bake in a preheated oven, middle shelf, @ 190 deg C for about  20 minutes.
Note :  These buns are best eaten on the day made.

    This recipe, I used the breadmaker, so there's a dough cycle. If you don't have a breadmaker, then you use the mixer. Look up my other bread/bun recipes that use the mixer. Happy trying!

German Butter Cookies CNY 2015 ~ 德国牛油曲奇

These cookies certainly do not need much introduction as they have been circulating among food blogs for quite some time, more so at this time of the year.   I've bookmarked this since last year and only had the time to make them now.  I made some plain ones as well as marbled ones. There are other flavours as well but for the time being, I can only make do with these.  Also this will be my last post before I take a break to celebrate the Lunar Chinese New Year with my family, relatives and friends.

Curry leaf Salted Egg Cookies ~ 咖喱叶咸蛋曲奇 ~ CNY 2017

I was quite sceptical to try this Salted Egg cookie recipe with an addition of curry leaves but I was surprisingly pleased with the end product.   It is indeed difficult to describe the taste of these cookies except that they do have an appetising flavour.  But one thing for sure, the sweet smell of salted egg and curry leaves will linger in your kitchen for quite a while.  Check it out here for a simple and easy Salted Egg cookie recipe.

Pumpkin almond crisps ~ CNY 2018 ~ 南瓜杏仁片脆饼

Chinese New Year is not too far away from now, in 2018, it falls on 16th February and we usher in the year of the Dog.  This is a very addictive crispy snack and it's different from my previous post of
Orange Sesame Almond Crisps for I used almond walnut powder instead of almond meal.  It tastes just as good.
