BBQ pork Roll


I was pondering what to do with some leftover homemade 'Char Siew' and then it dawned on me, why not roll it up into a bun, a big bun in this case .......  BBQ Pork Roll.

















This is something like the 'Charn Pau', baked buns with BBQ pork filling that we find in Dim Sum joints but I believe that there's no substitute for homemade, fresh from the oven bread!

Ingredients
  • 300 gm high protein flour
  • 50 gm superfine flour or plain flour
  • 1/4  tsp salt
  • 15 gm skimmed milk powder
  • 50 gm caster sugar
  • 25 gm butter/margarine
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1.1/2 tsp dried instant yeast
  • 150 ml  lukewarm  water
  • 1  tsp sugar
Filling
  • 2 long strips of BBQ pork, cut into 4 shorter strips
  • 1 egg yolk + 1 tsp egg white + a pinch of salt
Method
  1. Combine water with yeast, sprinkle in the sugar, stir till dissolved.  Let rest for 10 mins. for it to ferment.
  2. Sift flours, mix in salt, milk powder and sugar.  Mix with dough hook for about half a minute.
  3. Pour the frothy yeast mixture into the dry flour mixture, add in the egg and butter.
  4. Beat on slow for about 10 to 15 mins. till a pliable dough is formed and the dough leaves the sides of the bowl.
  5. Remove the dough hook, cover the mixing bowl with a damp cloth and let it prove in a warm place for about 1 hr. or till double in size.
  6. Dough is ready for shaping when an indentation is left after pressing with a finger.  Place dough on a llightly floured surface, give it a gentle knock to expel some air.
  7. Roll out into a round, fold into half and roll out again into an oblong.
  8. Spread some sauce from the BBQ pork and place the strips of pork onto the dough.  Roll up lengthwise and tuck in the ends.  Cut 2/3 through the dough with a spatula at 1 inch intervals, place into a greased tube pan.  Cover with a damp cloth and let prove for about 30 mins.
  9. Apply egg glaze and sprinkle on some black sesame seeds.
  10. Bake in preheated oven @ 180 deg C for about 15 to 20 mins. till golden brown.
  11. Let cool on wire rack before serving.

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.
