Bacon Buns




It's been quite a while since I've made bread, so here's a simple bun recipe that's savoury and yummy.  Shall I refer to them  as buns or rolls ......... whatever as long as they taste good!




Roll out a portion  of dough into an oblong, brush on some beaten egg, put in the bacon filling.
Fold up, secure,  pinch the seams, tuck in the ends, turn over and snip slight  cuts on the dough with a pair of kitchen scissors. 









Don't they look snug?  The soft buns were just so delectable with the aromatic bacon .........

Ingredients
  • 300 gm high protein flour
  • 25 gm caster sugar
  • 1/4  tsp salt
  • 1  tsp yeast
  • 170 ml milk  OR 15 gm skim milk powder + water
  • 45 gm butter/margarine (cut to small pieces)
  • Sesame seeds/pumpkin seeds   (optional)
  • Egg glaze - 1 egg beaten + a tinge of salt
Ingredients for filling
  • 200 gm bacon, trim off fat, diced.  Keep fat aside
  • 3 shallots, chopped
  • Pepper
Pan fry the bacon fat, toss in the shallots, stir-fry.  Add in the bacon, a dash of pepper, continue frying for a while, dish out to cool.

Method
  1. Mix sifted flour, sugar, salt and yeast with the dough hook on slow.
  2. Slowly add in milk, mix for a second, then add in the butter.
  3. Beat till the dough is smooth and leave the sides of the mixing bowl.
  4. Remove dough hook.  Cover the mixing  bowl with a damp cloth, set to prove for 50 mins. in a warm place till double in bulk.
  5. Remove dough from mixing bowl onto a lightly floured work top.  Knock out some air from the dough.
  6. Knead lightly, divide into equal portions.
  7. Roll each portion into an oblong, brush on some beaten egg, put in the bacon filling, secure and pinch the seams.  Tuck in the ends neatly.  Turn over and make slight cuts (not too deep) on the dough with a pair of kitchen scissors.
  8. Leave on a paper lined tray, cover with a damp cloth, let rise for another 40 mins. or until double in size.
  9. Brush with egg   glaze, sprinkle on some sesame seeds.
  10. Bake in preheated oven @ 180 deg C for about 20 - 25 mins. or till golden brown.
  11. Remove from oven and let cool on wire rack.
  12. Serve warm.

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!

Wife Biscuit (Lo Por Paeng) 老婆餅

Happy New Year, everyone!   My first post for 2015 is 'Wife Biscuit' aka 'Lo Por Paeng', a soft and flaky pastry with winter melon filling which is a very popular delicacy in Hong Kong.  The ones that I find here are not the same as their  flaky counterparts, instead they are crispy and thin.   I've been surfing the internet for a recipe and I was very happy when I stumbled upon a Youtube video from SiuKitchen.   The video is in Cantonese and she gives very detailed steps on how to make these flaky pastries.   The pastries were good and stayed flaky and soft for three days in an airtight container.  I needn't have to reheat them in the oven toaster.

Chai Tea Snowskin mini Mooncake 2020 ~ 柴茶冰皮月饼

This time, I experimented with Chai Tea to act as a flavour for the dough skin of this 'Bing Pi',  冰皮 mooncake.  These non-baked snowskin mooncakes are soft, slightly chewy and can be referred to as mochi mooncake too.  Nowadays snowskin mooncakes are gaining popularity and like their baked counterparts, they can house different flavours of lotus paste as well.
