Apple Turnover


I made these  Apple Turnovers  with the Kawan puff pastry and they turned out great.   I served these for tea and they were well received by my family members.  Not only were these flaky pastries delicious but they were extremely easy and simple to make.  Aromatic pastries with apples, raisins and much more ..........














I've no idea how the name came about but I'm sure that I didn't 'turn over' any apples, instead I placed a fresh piece of pastry on top of the apple filling ....... so shall I give it  another name?   Perhaps, just simple Apple Puffs?

Recipe for Apple Turnovers

Ingredients
  • 2 green apples
  • 2  Tbsp orange juice
  • 1  tsp orange zest
  • 3  Tbsp raisins
  • 3  Tbsp demerara sugar
  • 1/4  tsp cinnamon
  • 1  Tbsp flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten + 1 tsp water
Method
  1. Combine orange zest and juice.
  2. Peel, core and cut apples into 1/4 inch dice, toss in with the zest to prevent them from browning.
  3. Add in raisins, cinnamon, salt, sugar and flour.  Mix well.
  4. Place apple mixture onto a 4 inch x 4inch pastry, leaving about 3/4 inch border all round. 
  5. Apply egg wash round the sides of the pastry.
  6. Place another piece of pastry on top of the apple mixture, seal and crimp the edges with a fork.
  7. Apply egg wash on top of the pastry.
  8. Cut 3 small steam vents on top of each pastry.
  9. Bake in a preheated oven @ 200 deg C for 20 mins., till puffed and golden brown.
  10. Remove from oven, let cool on a wire rack.
  11. Dust with icing sugar.
  12. Serve warm.

  5. This looks temptingly delicious, my friend! I think I can handle this simple recipe... just got to search for the puff pastry squares at Tesco. Would it be possible to just use a single pastry wrap, fill half with the apple+raisins mixture and roll over like sardine rolls?

    You can put in the filling, not so much, then fold it diagonally and crimp the edges, or even make into a rectangle.
    Rolling up like a swissroll, afraid that the filling will drop out. Happy trying!

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…
