Pumpkin Cinnamon Nutty Rolls ~ 南瓜肉桂面包卷


The El Nino helped in speeding up the proofing process for these Pumpkin Cinnamon Nutty Rolls.  I was really surprised when the dough tripled in size in just under an hour.  I checked the temperature at that time and it was 34 deg.C!  These sweet and tender rolls are best eaten on the day they are made but do heat up leftovers if any.








Pumpkin Cinnamon Nutty Rolls  ~    南瓜肉桂面包卷

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 430 gm plain flour, sifted
  • 3 Tbsp/45 gm unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2.1/4 tsp instant dry yeast
  • 1 large egg
  • 2/3 cup fresh pumpkin puree (from 300 gm raw pumpkin)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • some raw sugar to sprinkle

Filling
  • 50 gm brown sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 50 gm lightly toasted walnuts, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter
Method
  1. Discard the seeds and membrane from the pumpkin and steam with the skin.  Then scrape out the pumpkin, and mash with a spoon, leave aside.
  2. Heat milk and butter till butter is melted and pour this into a stand mixer with the dough hook attachment.
  3. Immediately sprinkle on yeast, let stand until a bit foamy, about 5 mins.
  4. Add sifted flour, sugar, egg, mashed pumpkin and salt.  Mix on low speed, scraping the sides of the mixing bowl once and continue to beat till dough is smooth and elastic.
  5. Cover the dough with a piece of damp cloth, let rise in a warm place till double in size, about 1 hr.
  6. Grease a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with some melted butter, set aside.  
  7. Mix the brown sugar and cinnamon.
  8. Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and roll out the dough.  Spread melted butter, sprinkle on the brown sugar mixture and chopped walnuts, leaving a 1/4 inch border.
  9. Starting from the long edge, roll up like a swiss roll, then cut to 15 pieces.  Place rolls on the greased pan, cut side up, spaced evenly.  Cover with damp cloth or cling wrap, let rise in warm place for about 45 mins to 1 hour.  Sprinkle on the raw sugar.
  10. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg.C for 20 to 25 mins.  Let cool in pan for about 5 mins.
  11. Serve warm.
  12. Yield :  15 rolls
Note :  Other than sprinkling with raw sugar, you can also top them with glaze or cream cheese frosting.

Traditional Chinese baked sponge cake ~ 烤鸡蛋糕

These old fashioned Chinese baked sponge cakes bring back fond memories of my childhood of  yesteryears.  They taste somewhat like the CNY Kuih Bahulu and I remember snacking on them when I was little.  I've tried making this twice, googled and tweaked the recipe from here and there but the cakes turned out chewy instead of soft and moist.  I was about to raise the white flag when I told myself that I might be third time lucky and thankfully I managed to get what I wanted on my third attempt.  So perserverence does pay!

The recipe may look easy but the beating of the eggs to 'ribbon' stage and the folding/whisking of the flour into the egg mixture can be tricky ...... that's why I had to try thrice before I could achieve what I wanted.  I kept two cakes in a container and they were even softer the next day.... Yum is the word!

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.

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 :)
