Focaccia Ham Sandwich


I still had some '00' flour with me after making Bak Kwa ~ BBQ Sweetmeat Sandwich Loaf and was browsing through the net looking for another suitable and yet to try recipe.  I stumbled on a post of  Focaccia Sandwich  from   Kitchen Corner  and without much hesitation set my hands on trying out this bread with no reservations!




















This bread served my dinner well.  We had it on its own with some salad.  Soup was not necessary, suits the lazy me, just fine!  Will I make this again?  Yes, this time will make do with just high protein flour.

(Recipe adapted from Kichen Corner with modifications)
Ingredients
  • 375 gm '00' Italian flour
  • 12 gm sugar
  • 1/2  tsp salt
  • 210 ml water
  • 1.1/4  tsp dried yeast
  • 12 ml olive oil
  • 30 gm honey baked ham
  • Garlic - chooped
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • White sesame seeds
  • A little sprinkling of seasalt  (optional)
  • 1 egg + a bit of egg white to glaze
Method
  1. Mix all the dry ingredients together.  Add in water and gradually pour in the olive oil.
  2. Knead the dough with the dough hook till it comes together to form a smooth and soft ball.  (Not as long as you would knead for ordinary bread).
  3. Remove the dough hook and lightly oil the bowl, cover the bowl with a piece of damp cloth, let dough prove in a warm place for an hour, or till it doubles in size.
  4. Knock out air from the dough, knead lightly, divide into 2 portions, let rest covered for 10 mins.
  5. Roll out to an oblong.  Lift up the piece of dough and place this on a tray lined with baking paper.  Arrange the pieces of ham on top of this piece of dough leaving some space at the sides.
  6. Roll out the other piece of dough and place this on top of the ham.  Seal the edges tightly.
  7. Cover with a piece of damp cloth and let prove for another 20 mins.
  8. Apply egg wash, sprinkle on the pumpkin seeds, chopped garlic, sesame seeds and little seasalt.
  9. Bake in a preheated oven @ 190 degC for 20 to 25 mins. till golden brown.
  10. Remove from tray and let cool on a wire rack.
  11. Cut up with a serrated knife and serve.

Ma lai Ko ~ 马拉糕

  Whenever we 'yum cha' in a Chinese dim sum restaurant we never fail to order and try their Ma Lai Ko, which is a brown sugar steamed fluffy sponge cake and what most kids would like to have.  I have been looking for a simple recipe to make this Ma Lai Ko.  Some recipes require a fermented starter dough which will result in streaky patterns in the Ma Lai Ko, some will just go with baking powder and sodium bicarbonate but I chance upon this recipe which requires yeast, baking powder and sodium bicarbonate. I made this on a cool, windy, day and was praying that the batter will rest and proof with bubbles after 2  hours and thankfully it did.  I was very pleased when the cake looked good after I opened the lid of my steamer and the taste was superb, not overly sweet and the texture, nice, soft and moist.  I kept the remaining pieces of 'ko' in a container, at room temperature and they stayed nice and moist even on the third day, maybe because the weather was cool and not

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. 

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! Steamed egg with minced pork  ~   猪肉蒸水蛋 Ingredients 150 gm minced pork 2 chicken eggs -  100 ml without shell 150 ml boiled, cooled water  (Ratio is 1:1.5) 1/4 tsp salt sesame oil, pepper light soya sauce to taste Method Season the minced pork with some salt. Whisk the eggs with water, strain it onto a plate. Mix in the seasoned minced pork.  Remove any air bubbles. When the water in the steamer is boiling, place the plate of eggs onto the steamer plate, close lid and turn the heat to the lowest. Steam for about 14 to 15 mins., check after 5 mins.  Jiggle the plate, if centre is wobbly, it's done. Remove from steamer, garnish with some spring onions, light soya sauce,
