Honey Twist

Prepared a foundation dough with the help of my Breadmaker and made this.  It  did take a bit of effort to coil up the dough as it was fairly long and was not so adept at it as this was my first try.  Nonetheless, it turned out quite well and was lovely, especially eaten warm.




the crunchy topping of chopped almonds and honey...... mmm... especially when your teeth sinks into it, beautiful....



picture on the left, before proving, and picture on the right, after proving and topped with a mixture of honey and nibbed almonds, just before going into the oven



just out of the oven and the sweet smell of freshly baked bread, fills the air



a bit of a heart shape ?




Recipe for Honey Twist

Ingredients for Dough, using a Breadmaker

  • 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
For the Topping
Mix together the following :-
    3 Tbsp Honey
2  oz Brown Sugar
2  oz melted Butter/Margarine OR 3 Tbsp Olive Oil (I used this)
1  oz Plain Flour
1.1/2 oz  nibbed Almonds
3  Tsp water
Method
    At the end of the dough cycle, turn the dough onto a floured surface and knock it a bit for any air to escape.
Shape the dough into a long, narrow roll, 1 inch thick.  Coil the roll into a lightly greased 10 inch shallow tin, beginning @ the outside edge and twisting as you go.
Leave a little space between the coils.
Cover the tin with a damp cloth and allow to prove until double in bulk, around 35 to 40 minutes.
Spoon over the topping mixture and bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg C, for about 25 to 30 minutes.
Serve warm.

    Yes, the breadmaker really comes in handy, at least can alleviate the time spent on kneading the dough.

Turmeric chicken (2) ~ 黄 姜 鸡

A lot has been said about the nutrients and health benefits of adding turmeric to our diet.  Not only is turmeric a good source of manganese and iron, it also helps to lower blood triglycerides after a meal.  Moreover it helps to add more colour to a dish as you can see from this Turmeric Chicken dish which I'm sharing with you today.

Curry Chicken Puff ~ 咖哩鸡角

This is a 'cheat' version of curry puffs.  Why do I say 'cheat'?  Because the puff pastries were store bought.  It's very much easier to make these curry puffs snack with instant pastry for if I were to make the pastries from scratch it's going to be very tedious.  Also, shaping and baking them in a muffin pan is less time consuming.  Enjoy!
