Bak Kwa rolls



From the kitchen of 'No-Frills Recipes' here comes piping hot and sweet smelling 'Bak Kwa rolls'.  I made these rolls with Bak Kwa or sweet dried meat leftover from Chinese New Year.  They were soft and delectable with the Bak Kwa and I saved up two rolls for breakfast the next day.  Surprisingly they were still soft although I added some wholemeal flour to this recipe.

 








Recipe for Bak Kwa rolls

Ingredients

(A) 270 gm high protein flour
       30 gm wholemeal flour
       55 gm sugar
       5 gm salt
       10 gm milk powder
       2  tsp instant yeast
(B)  1/2 an egg
       150 ml cold water
(C)  30 gm butter
(D)  Bak kwa pieces
(E)  1/2 an egg + 1 tsp water to make egg wash
(F)  Poppy seeds for topping

Method
  1. Mix all the ingredients in (A) with the dough hook till well blended.
  2. Then add in (B) and mix on low speed to form a dough.
  3. Add in the butter in (C) and beat on medium speed to form a smooth and non-sticky dough.
  4. Cover the dough with a damp cloth or cling film and let it prove for 60 mins. in a warm place.
  5. Press the dough with your finger and if the indentation remains, then the dough is ready for shaping.
  6. Transfer the dough onto a floured surface, knock off some air from the dough, knead lightly and divide the dough into 70 gm portions.  Shape the dough into balls, cover and put in the fridge to let rest for 15 mins.
  7. Roll dough to an oblong around 6 to 7 inches in length, place filling @ the top end, cut strips @ the other end with a sharp knife.  Roll  from the filling/top end and tuck in the sides.
  8. Arrange rolls on a parchment lined baking tray, cover with a damp cloth and leave to prove in a warm place for 45 mins. or till they double in size.
  9. Brush with egg wash.  Sprinkle on some poppy seeds.
  10. Bake in a preheated oven @ 190 deg C for 12 to 15 mins. or till golden brown.

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.
