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.

  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.

Topo Map Cake ~ 地图蛋糕

I think it is more appropriate to name this cake just as 'Topo map cake' for the layers in this cake really look like a map.  Layering this cake can be quite challenging as a great deal of patience is required.  But patience and endurance do pay and after the cake is baked and once you sliced it up, you'll be so pleased to see the pretty layers and the colour combination.  Not only does it look awesome, the texture is good too, soft and moist.
