Pandan raisin rolls




Think, I'm bitten by the bug, no, not bed bug, but Bread bug!  There was some pandan paste left after making the Sesame Pandan Braid and putting nothing to waste, made these .....................









Soft and fluffy rolls, not too sweet and with a tinge of tanginess  from the sultanas coupled with crunchy almond flakes ....... lovely, more so if it's your own creation!

Ingredients
  • 250 gm Pandan paste
  • 50 gm Sultanans
  • Egg glaze - 1 egg yolk + 1 Tbsp water + a tinge of salt
Dough Ingredients
  • 1 egg + water to make up 1 cup or 250 ml
  • 1.1/2 oz or 3 Tbsp butter/margarine
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 410 gm High Protein flour
  • 2 Tbsp skimmed milk powder
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp yeast
Preparation
  1. Put all the dough ingredients accordingly into the bread pan of your breadmaker.  Press 'dough'cycle.  It'll take 1.1/2 hours for the dough to be ready for shaping.
  2. At the end of the dough cycle, turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface.  Gently knock back the dough to expel some air.
  3. Roll out the dough to a large oblong, spread with a layer of pandan paste, then sprinkle on some sultanas and roll it up tightly like a swiss roll.
  4. Cut the roll into 1/2 inch slices and place, cut side down on a paper lined baking tray.  Cover with a damp cloth and let rise for 30 mins. till double in size.
  5. Brush with egg glaze and sprinkle flaked almonds on top.
  6. Bake in preheated oven @ 180 deg C for about 20-25 mins. or till golden brown.
  7. Makes 12 rolls.

    Yes, I've a soft spot for pandan.
    Nope, my other half 'dissected' the oven, found the faulty thermostat, now sourcing for the part.

    There's still room for improvement.
    Too bad you're so far away!

    Sonia, yes, why not try it with your homemade kaya. I'm sure they'll taste much better.

    Anonymous. I did a post on Meat Floss buns, taste great too.

  10. Hi,

    Just would like to check, will the dough get sticky? I have bread machine too but with dough option, it somehow gets too sticky. Do i need to knead it again before shaping?

    Yup, it does get sticky with bread machine too, but then after knocking down the air and then you knead slightly with floured hands, then it'll be ok. When it's not sticky then you can shape to whatever you wish. Hope this helps.

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

Pandan Angku Kuih ~ 班兰叶龟糕

I've never thought of making Angku Kuih or Red Tortoise Cake simply because it's so readily available in my daily market place.  But there have been so many posts of this traditional kuih by my fellow food bloggers and  they look so cute and beautiful that I just cannot resist the temptation of not trying my hands at it.

I must admit that making this kuih can be rather tedious and the amount of work can really make your head spin.  But if you prepare the mung bean filling a day ahead, then it does help to lighten your work quite a fair bit.  For all the  effort, these Pandan Angku Kuih came out beautifully.  To see how the kuih will be like the next day, I kept some in a container at room temperature.  To my surprise the skin of the kuih stayed soft till late the next day.  I didn't have to steam them again.  All I can say is that my efforts paid off handsomely and I'm so pleased.  Now, I've no qualms  experimenting this Angku Kuih with different flavours :)

Country style steam chicken

This is one simple recipe of  steamed chicken dish which I'm sure many bloggers have blogged before.  Tasty yet easy and quick to prepare, this dish pairs very well with steamy hot white rice.
