Chelsea Buns II


These raisin filled Chelsea Buns are a perfect accompaniment to a cup of hot coffee or tea.  They're not very sweet as I've omitted the glaze for the topping, instead I just sprinkled some brown sugar on top just prior to baking.  If you prefer a richer Chelsea Bun, you can add on a smear of butter for a more creamy taste :)









Recipe for Chelsea Buns (adapted from 'here')

    Ingredients

    • 500 gm high protein/bread flour
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 2 tsp dried yeast
    • 300 ml milk
    • 40 gm unsalted butter
    • 1 egg
    • brown sugar for sprinkling
    Filling
    • 25 gm butter, melted
    • 1 orange zest
    • 75 gm Demarara sugar
    • 2 tsp cinnamon
    • 100 gm raisins
    • 100 gm craisins
    Glaze  (I omitted)
    • 1.1/2 Tbsp honey
    • 1 Tbsp water     

    Method
    1. Melt butter in a small saucepan, add in milk, stir.  Heat till lukewarm.
    2. Sift flour, salt into a large mixing bowl, mix well.  Make a well in the centre and add in the yeast.
    3. Lightly beat up the egg.
    4. Pour milk-butter mixture and egg mixture into the flour.
    5. Mix flour until dough begins to come together and comes away from the sides of the bowl.
    6. Knead on a floured surface for about 5 mins. till dough is smooth and elastic.
    7. Place dough back into the mixing bowl, cover with a damp cloth and  let rise till double in size in a warm place for about 1 hour.
    8. Knock down dough, roll into a 10 x 11 inch rectangle.  Brush surface with some melted butter, sprinkle Demarara sugar, cinnamon, dried fruits and orange zest.
    9. Roll long side up like a swiss roll.
    10. Cut into about 1.3/4 inch thick.  Arrange rolls, cut side down onto a lightly greased baking pan.
    11. Cover with a damp cloth, let rise in a warm place for about 30 min.
    12. Sprinkle on some brown sugar.
    13. Bake in a preheated oven @ 190 deg.C for about 20 to 25 mins till golden brown.  Test with a skewer till it comes out clean, give it a knock and if the sound is hollow, then the buns are done.
    14. Yield :  12 buns

Chicken Floss Cake ~ 鸡肉松蛋糕

It's normal to find buns coated with meat floss in any bakery, but yet to find a meat floss coated piece of cake.  I saw this Chicken Floss Cake on youtube and was eager to give this a shot.  The recipe is quite similar to a chiffon cake and I was curious to find out the taste which should be slightly sweetish and saltish.  Wouldn't it be weird, I wonder.  But it turned out that the taste is rather unique with a light and soft texture and my family members gave me a thumbs up and asked for more!
