CHOCOLATE CUSTARD SWEET BUN


After many trial and error in making roll and bun I finally, am happy with this chocolate custard sweet bun. Recipe heavily adapted from kimmy -cookingpleasure, blogspot.com. I made a minor tweak to fit the ready stock in my cupboard. Instead of the chocolate custard I used cooking chocolate that I melted using double boiler. Chocolate lovers will definitely love these bun.



Step 1 - Ingredients
100 gm plain flour
150 gm bread flour [you can replace plain flour and use all 250 gm bread flour]
4 tsp instant yeast [I used 3 tsp]
130-150 ml  cold water
Mix yeast with water in mixing bowl, then add in flour.  Knead to form a smooth dough.
Cover and leave to proof for 1-1 1/2 hours or double in size.

Step 2 - Ingredients
250 gm bread flour
100 gm sugar [I used 80 gm]
1 tbsp milk powder
1 tsp salt
1 small egg [20 gm] - can used large egg and set aside some for egg glaze
130 ml cold water
50  gm butter
Egg glaze
Filling - Sweet chocolate custard paste 



  1. Add all Step 2 ingredients  [except butter] to dough from Step 1.  Knead from low speed until well combined.  Continue to knead on medium speed until dough is soft and smooth [takes about 7-10 minutes].  Add in butter, continue to knead until dough is soft and elastic or window pane stage [N otes - if not baking buns immediately, the dough can be kept in plastic bag tied up and refrigerate.   Thaw to room temperature before using.   Advisable to keep up to 48 hours only]. OR
  2. Shape dough into a ball.  Cover and leave to proof for 15 minutes.   Punch down and divide dough into 14-16 portions of equal weight [you can make smaller or bigger buns according to your own preference].  Shape dough into round balls.
  3. Roll out each ball and flatten dough, pipe in some chocolate custard filling in the centre [not too much because the filling may ooze out when baking].  Gather up the seam and seal well.   Place bun on paper casing, seam side down on baking tray.  Finish shaping all the buns.
  4. Leave to rise for 30-45 minutes or until double in size.  Brush with egg glaze. Decorate buns by piping lines with chocolate paste with any desired designs.
  5. Baked in preheated oven at 190-200 degrees [middle shelf]  for 12-15 minutes or until golden.
  6. Remove and leave to cool on rack or serve.

Sweet Chocolate Custard Paste - Bun Filling [quantity should be enough for 14-16 buns]
 
30 gm instant custard powder
1 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tbsp condensed milk [more if you prefer the paste to be sweeter]
100 ml hot water

  1. Mix cocoa powder, condensed milk with hot water.  Stir until well blended.  Set aside to cool before mixing with instant custard powder.
  2. Stir until paste is well combined and smooth.  Keep in a plastic bag or piping bag.  Refrigerate before using.
Berpeluh juga kalau meroti ini kadang-kadang jadi kadang-kadang buat hal...setiap kali membuat selalunya berderau darah dibuatnya. tetapi alhamdulillah kali ini boleh tahan jadinya. Saya terjumpa resipi ini dalam blog kimmy nampak menarik jadi saya cuba, cuma saya tidak membuat chocolate custard..saya gantikan dengan chocolate yang dicairkan. Boleh tahan sedap dan sesuai buat sajian minum petang.

HOW TO FROST BUTTERCREAM / CARA MENGHIAS KEK


It irritates me if I can't get a smooth frosting. I envy those who made it well...I always did it my way until I stumble into a video on making a smooth frosting. Ever since that I used the techniques and OMG it turned out well.  Learn this techniques you sure be happy with the result. The video from Youtube.com  makes your job easier - Happy Trying

All you need
*a round cake to be frosted
*cardboard cake round to fit your cake
*offset spatula (a butter knife will do)
*a large cutting board
*freezer space
*4 inch tape knife (find one at the hardware store)
*cake turntable or Lazy Susan

And the most important element is you got to be very patience



Let your cake cool. Most cakes will form a dome on the top. Level the top off with a serrated knife or sciccor

Pour a dallop  buttercream at the centre of the cake. Using your butter knife or spatula spread your buttercream frosting . You will want to hold your spatula at a 45-degree angle and move the cake stand in order to frost it perfectly. Most people make the mistake of moving around the cake, while the cake should really be the only thing to move. Now, for the really smooth part, use a “bench scraper” (if you don’t have one, this is a great tool) to smooth the sides of the cake to a glassy finish. You can always use your spatula to fix any small smudges or mistakes, but finish it off with the scraper. Following this step, you will want to refrigerate the cake until it the frost is rather firm.

It is okay for your frosting to be a little thick. It will be better than getting it too thin so you see crumbs. The corner where the sides meet the top will be crisp and clean. Using your spatula or butter knife remove any frosting on the wax paper that is excess and pick up your cake and slide the wax paper out from under it. Your cake is now smoothly frosted and ready for decorating.




Mula-mula menghias kek memang cukup menyakitkan hati, kerap kali kek tidak kemas dan tidak lincin..tetapi kini tidak lagi...walau pun bukan pakar tetapi teknik membuatnya jika diamati betul-betul boleh menghasilkan kek yang dihajati. Paling penting dalam menghias kek adalah :

1 - Kesabaran
2 - Peralatan kek
3 - Cara yang betul.

Saya telah meletakkan alat penting menghias kek. Selalunya untuk krim atau butter krim, krimnya dicurahkan ditengah-tengah kek, kemudian putarkan lapik pemutar kek., Tangan hendaklah 45 darjah..dan tangan jangan dierak...cuma putarkan lapik kek..krim akan leper dan menurun ke bawah. menggunakan putaran yang sama lincinkan keliling. untuk menambahkan kelincinan gunakan scrapper dibahagian tepi sambil memutar lapik pemutar. Insyallah kek anda akan menjadi cantik dan lincin.

Sila lihat video di atas..anda pasti akan mendapat gambaran yang lebih jelas. Lihat experiment saya di atas...saya sudah berjaya menepati apa yang saya inginkan. Anda pun boleh membuat yang lebih hebat dari ini. Selamat Mencuba.

THE COLOURFUL MOMENT OF MY 2012 EID MUBARAK


Salam everyone, hope you're have a splendid Eid Mubarak, which literally means "Blessed Festival." Eid is a great day of celebration for Muslims.

Food items for celebrating include everything from ketupat-rendang, soto  vermicelli in saffron sweet cream, curries, kebab,biriyani and it varies all around the globe. It's joyful event and the central of it has always been fabulous food.

Normally we will lined up the menu from first till the third Eid. Open houses organized by Muslim friends is the best experience in organizing functions at home. Since I do not have parent's my Eid is a simple celebrations with  my kids. No "balik kampung" for us". Ziarah to relatives normally be on the third Eid Mubarak. First and Second Eid are more to Open House for my kids friends and buddy.  Depending on the crowd...the usual menu and favourite has always be Ketupat-Rendang. I made some Soto Ayam (an Indonesia signature) and of course cakes and cookies.

We started the day by waking up early to pray at a mosque, contribute money to the poor, prepare special meals, and small forgiven exercise among the families. It is customary to exchange greetings so house got to be preared for guests and family members.

  So here's are the colourful moment of my 2012 EID MUBARAK

BLUEBERRY SNACK CAKE



I have this habit...of can't see any berries ...I will grab and store in the fridge..and always ended up looking for new recipe to try. This is one of it.

This light and delicious blueberry cake is quick and easy to make, and it is different from most blueberry cakes because the blueberries are baked inside the cake instead of added as a topping after the cake is baked. This cake also freezes well. Serve blueberry bars warm for dessert with a big dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Or, serve this tasty cake as a coffee cake with coffee or milk and a generous sprinkling of powdered sugar. 


Blueberry Snack Cake

1/4 cup shortening (I use butter)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 cup sifted flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup milk
1 cup blueberries

Cream shortening and sugar until the mixture is very light and creamy. Add the egg and beat well. Sift the dry ingredients or mix them together with a whisk. Add the dry ingredients and milk all at once to the creamed shortening and egg mixture and mix again until everything is well-blended. Stir in the blueberries. Bake in a greased and floured 8-inch square pan at 350°F for 35 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool on a rack, then remove the cake from the pan.
Saya mempunyai satu tabiat...yang pantang tenguk berries...pasti beli dan akhirnya terkial-kial memikir apa yang hendak dibuat dengan berries ini. Resipi ini adalah salah satu daripadanya. Kek ini ringan dan lembao. Cukup sedap kalau dihidangkan dengan krim atau dengan air krim. Sesuai buat sajian atau minum petang.

SOFT FROSTED SUGAR COOKIES


This is not so much of Eid Mubarak cookies, it's more towards a daily cookies to meet our daily craving for something sweet. I stumbled into this in Annie's Eat cooking blog. I've long wanted to make it and only now when I have some left over Raya cookies ingredients, I made I batch of it. It's colourful, buttery with crisp edges.


SOFT FROSTED SUGAR COOKIES

For the cookies:
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 large eggs
5 teaspoons vanilla extract
For the frosting:
5 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
1/3 cup (5 1/3 Tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
7 Tablespoons milk (plus more, as needed)
Food coloring, optional
Sprinkles (optional)

For the cookies:
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat together the butter and sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla. With the mixer on low speed, gradually add the dry ingredients just until incorporated and evenly mixed. Cover and chill the dough for 1 hour.
When ready to bake the cookies, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone liner. Scoop a tablespoon of dough (about 3/4-ounce) and roll into a ball. Repeat with remaining dough, spacing cookies 2 inches apart. Bake for 8 minutes, rotating halfway. It is important not to over bake. The edges should not even be brown. Let cool for at least 10 minutes on the baking sheet, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

To frost the cookies:
In a medium bowl, whisk together the confectioners' sugar, melted butter, vanilla and milk until smooth. You will want a thick consistency, but not too thick so that it is hard to spread on the cookie. Whisk in additional milk, one teaspoon at a time, to reach desired consistency. Tint with food coloring, if desired. Use an off-set spatula to spread each cooled cookie with the frosting. Top with sprinkles if desired. Store in an airtight container for up to 3-4 days.

Terserempak dengan cookies ini dalam Annie's Eat Blog, tertarik sangat dan memang lama 
teringin hendak membuatnya tetapi tidak kesempatan..cuma baru-baru ini kebetulan ada lebihan bahan-bahan kuih saya cuba buat satu adunan...memang sedap..buttery dan garing ditepinya. Kalau yang ingin membuatnya saya cadangkan kecilkan sainya dan warna frosting biarkan terang sedikit supaya bangkit warna. Warna yang saya buat agak pucat dan kurang menarik. Resipi adalah sesuai untuk sajian petang atau untuk tekak yang inginkan sesuatu yang manis tetapi boleh jugalah kalau hendak buat sebagai kuih Hari Raya.
