BBQ pork Roll


I was pondering what to do with some leftover homemade 'Char Siew' and then it dawned on me, why not roll it up into a bun, a big bun in this case .......  BBQ Pork Roll.

















This is something like the 'Charn Pau', baked buns with BBQ pork filling that we find in Dim Sum joints but I believe that there's no substitute for homemade, fresh from the oven bread!

Ingredients
  • 300 gm high protein flour
  • 50 gm superfine flour or plain flour
  • 1/4  tsp salt
  • 15 gm skimmed milk powder
  • 50 gm caster sugar
  • 25 gm butter/margarine
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1.1/2 tsp dried instant yeast
  • 150 ml  lukewarm  water
  • 1  tsp sugar
Filling
  • 2 long strips of BBQ pork, cut into 4 shorter strips
  • 1 egg yolk + 1 tsp egg white + a pinch of salt
Method
  1. Combine water with yeast, sprinkle in the sugar, stir till dissolved.  Let rest for 10 mins. for it to ferment.
  2. Sift flours, mix in salt, milk powder and sugar.  Mix with dough hook for about half a minute.
  3. Pour the frothy yeast mixture into the dry flour mixture, add in the egg and butter.
  4. Beat on slow for about 10 to 15 mins. till a pliable dough is formed and the dough leaves the sides of the bowl.
  5. Remove the dough hook, cover the mixing bowl with a damp cloth and let it prove in a warm place for about 1 hr. or till double in size.
  6. Dough is ready for shaping when an indentation is left after pressing with a finger.  Place dough on a llightly floured surface, give it a gentle knock to expel some air.
  7. Roll out into a round, fold into half and roll out again into an oblong.
  8. Spread some sauce from the BBQ pork and place the strips of pork onto the dough.  Roll up lengthwise and tuck in the ends.  Cut 2/3 through the dough with a spatula at 1 inch intervals, place into a greased tube pan.  Cover with a damp cloth and let prove for about 30 mins.
  9. Apply egg glaze and sprinkle on some black sesame seeds.
  10. Bake in preheated oven @ 180 deg C for about 15 to 20 mins. till golden brown.
  11. Let cool on wire rack before serving.

Gula Melaka Kuih Talam ~ 椰香打南糕

After successfully making the  Kuih Talam  with much trial and error, I ventured into trying out making this Gula Melaka Kuih Talam.  What is gula melaka one may ask?  Simply put, it's just palm sugar made from coconut palm.  The slightly saltish top coconut layer pairs very well with the dark and intense flavour of the palm sugar from the bottom layer, and this kuih can be served for breakfast or snack on at any time of the day.

Cherry Loaf Cake ~ 樱桃蛋糕

I baked this old-fashioned Cherry Loaf using the Marble Butter cake recipe but adjusted the recipe as I only used three eggs instead of four to fit into the loaf pan.   I remember that when I was little, I was attracted by the red cherries as any other kid and would gingerly take them out and eat them first.    The cake was secondary.  This cake is soft and moist infused with the sweet glace cherries giving it a lovely combination of flavours.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
