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.

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…

Steamed egg with minced pork ~ 猪肉蒸水蛋

This is a super comforting home-cooked dish which requires only a few ingredients.   An easy to go recipe, I added minced pork to give the dish more volume.   Kids as well as adults will love the silken smooth egg interspersed with bits of juicy meat.   Great to serve over hot rice!

Char Siew Pau ~ 蒸叉烧包

I have been itching to try out a Pau recipe and vaguely remember that I did make it once, long, long ago.  So I  got hold of my old file of recipes and finally managed to retrieve it.  I did it recently and must say that I'm satisfied with the result.  The texture of the Pau was soft and a bit chewy, wholesome and filling too.  Naturally, they didn't look so nice and round like the ones sold in the dim sum restaurants, but nonetheless I think homemade ones can be just as delectable as well.
