Red Bean Rolls




Whenever I have the opportunity I like to hang around bakeries and look at the different shapes and patterns of their bread and buns on display.  Yes, for inspiration to experiment.   I recently made these 'Red Bean Rolls' for tea and they still tasted good the next day!






After the first proving, roll out the dough, place the red bean paste in the centre, fold up and roll up into half, then fold up the sides.


Turn over the folded up dough, roll out flat, then roll up like a swiss roll and cut into 1 inch thick pieces.
Place the rolls in a pan and cover with a damp cloth, let rise again for about 40 min.  Apply egg glaze and bake in preheated oven.



Freshly baked rolls straight out from the oven ....... lovely aroma!






These yummy rolls are good for tea anytime!

Ingredients
  • 300 gm high protein flour
  • 25 gm caster sugar
  • 1/4  level tsp salt
  • 1 level tsp yeast

  • 45 gm butter/margarine - cut into small pieces
  • Filling      -  350 gm red bean paste

Method

  4. Dough is ready for shaping when an indentation made with a finger remains.
  5. Remove dough from mixing bowl onto a lightly floured work top.
  6. Roll  out dough into an oblong, spread the red bean paste onto the centre of the dough.
  7. Fold the dough from the top and from the bottom.  Then fold into half.
  8. Fold in from both ends and turn over.
  9. Roll out to a rectangle and roll up tightly like a swiss roll.
  10. Cut to about 1 inch thick and place, cut side down onto a greased pan.

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!

Marble Butter Cake ~ 大理石牛油蛋糕

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead.

Bika Ambon Panggang ~ 印尼糕

Kuih Bika Ambon or Honeycomb cake is an Indonesian dessert and from the outset it looks quite challenging to attempt baking this cake in order to achieve a honeycomb pattern.   There are many recipes online and I also googled for Indonesian recipes and watched the video on youtube.  I was looking for a recipe that is not so complicating but straightforward and I managed to come across Whattocooktoday's blog and found her recipe.  I was very delighted when the cake turned out to be a success.  Thanks, Marvellina!   Bika Ambon Panggang  ~   印尼糕 ( adapted from  'here'  with adjustments)   Ingredients for : - Yeast mixture 2 tsp dry yeast 1 Tbsp plain flour 1 Tbsp sugar 2 Tbsp warm water Coconut Milk 350 ml coconut milk 160 gm sugar 1/2 tsp turmeric powder 10 kaffir lime leaves (tear to smaller pieces) 2 lemon grass, bruised for flavour Cake Batter 180 gm tapioca flour 1/4 tsp salt 5 large eggs   Method Mix the ingredients in the Yeast mixture and set aside to let it ferment.
