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

Method
  1. Mix sifted flour, sugar, salt and yeast with the dough hook in a mixing bowl.

  3. Cover the mixing bowl with a damp cloth, set to prove for 50 mins. in a warm place till double in bulk.
  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.

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try. 

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.

Double Boiled Herbal Chicken Soup

Double boiling is slow cooking ........ means to put a soup pot or any covered ceramic or steel pot inside a bigger pot, immerse in boiling water, and let the soup cook at a lower temperature.  Hence the soup is cooked from heat generated from the boiling water and not from direct heat source. Double boiling lets the soup ingredients slowly release their nutrients into the soup, thus making it tasty and wholesome.  It's a long cooking process, roughly averaging 2 to 4 hours.  The tip is not to open the cover to check on the soup as it'll bring down the temperature and affect the cooking process.  The plus point is there's little evaporation and the soup will not boil over.  The only thing is to monitor that there's enough water in the bigger pot and not let it run dry.  Of course, nowadays, the slow cooker is another alternative to double boiling, saves the hassle of checking the water level.
