Pumpkin Cinnamon Nutty Rolls ~ 南瓜肉桂面包卷


The El Nino helped in speeding up the proofing process for these Pumpkin Cinnamon Nutty Rolls.  I was really surprised when the dough tripled in size in just under an hour.  I checked the temperature at that time and it was 34 deg.C!  These sweet and tender rolls are best eaten on the day they are made but do heat up leftovers if any.








Pumpkin Cinnamon Nutty Rolls  ~    南瓜肉桂面包卷

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 430 gm plain flour, sifted
  • 3 Tbsp/45 gm unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2.1/4 tsp instant dry yeast
  • 1 large egg
  • 2/3 cup fresh pumpkin puree (from 300 gm raw pumpkin)

  • some raw sugar to sprinkle

Filling
  • 50 gm brown sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 50 gm lightly toasted walnuts, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter
Method
  1. Discard the seeds and membrane from the pumpkin and steam with the skin.  Then scrape out the pumpkin, and mash with a spoon, leave aside.

  8. Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and roll out the dough.  Spread melted butter, sprinkle on the brown sugar mixture and chopped walnuts, leaving a 1/4 inch border.
  9. Starting from the long edge, roll up like a swiss roll, then cut to 15 pieces.  Place rolls on the greased pan, cut side up, spaced evenly.  Cover with damp cloth or cling wrap, let rise in warm place for about 45 mins to 1 hour.  Sprinkle on the raw sugar.
  10. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg.C for 20 to 25 mins.  Let cool in pan for about 5 mins.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),
