IMG_2028.JPG

I made these rolls last week. This recipe is a keeper. In fact, using the same recipe, I can make bread with fillings in it.

Ingredients :

1 1/2 cup milk
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp dry yeast
3 tbsp sugar
1 egg – room temperature and beaten
4 cups of bread flour or plain flour
2 tsp salt

Method :

– Heat the milk and butter till warm and butter has melt. Stir a bit.

– Add the sugar and yeast, stir and set aside for a few minutes. Then add the room temperature beaten egg. Stir again.

– Mix the flour and salt in a bowl. Add the yeast mixture just now and stir till thoroughly combined. Put a lid on the bow (leave a gap). Let the dough rise until double its size

– Punch the dough to release the gas on a floured board. Knead the dough for a few minutes. Then shape into 12 rolls and place them in a greased pan. Let the rolls rise (about 1 hour or more).

– Preheat the oven to 170 degree C. Place the rolls in the oven and bake for about 20 mins or till the tops of the rolls are golden brown.

– Remove from oven and immediately brush the tops of the rolls with melted butter. Lift the rolls out of the pan and leave it to cool on a rack.

Sausage Rolls

Ok this week lesson via my online friend/teacher is to make Sausage Rolls. I love to look at the pics posted by my online teacher, hers is definitely a beauty and so well done which if I were to compare mine, it’s so obvious who is the pupil …hehee…

Neway, I make the rolls early this morning. The recipe is indeed an easy one and though it did not look as good as my teacher’s, it’s still taste good so within 1 hr, almost gone (I saved 2 pieces for my husband) 🙂

Definitely gonna try making it again cos I believe I need lots of practice before I can perfect making bread and rolls.

Cornbeef rolls

Today, mood was focus on making minced meat rolls … somehow it’s very therapeutic when the baking mood strikes.

Before that the first time I made the rolls was using cornbeef and it was fantastic …. my kids and niece rave about it. But today I decided to change the fillings … instead of cornbeef, I use minced meat instead. Verdict? …. Superlicious! 🙂

Here’s the recipe for the cornbeef rolls and if you want to use minced meat, you just need to substitute it plus add about 2-3 tbsp of curry powder when cooking the fillings. Oh and if you use minced meat don’t use the Chinese parsley and onion leaves, instead use coriander leaves. Coriander works great when cooking meat with curry powder.

Cornbeef rolls

Ingredients for the dough :

250g bread flour

30g sugar

20g milk powder

6 g instant dried yeast (1 1/2 teaspoons)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon bread softener or bread improver

2 egg yolks

130 ml fresh milk

30g butter

Method for the dough :

Add in all the ingredients except for the butter. Mix thorougly till it becomes a dough. Then add in the butter, and continue to knead the dough til it becomes soft. Put the dough into a container, cover with a wet towel and leave it for about 1 hour in a warm room temperature for it to rise to double the size.

Once it has risen, punch the dough to let our the air. Split it into 2 and knead both doughs for a while before rolling it into a rectangular shape.

On top of the rectangular dough, spread the filling evenly and then roll it like making a swissroll. After that, slice into pieces. Put the rolls into the muffin baking tin and bake for about 15-20 mins at 190 degree Celsius.

Fillings :

1 canned of corn-beef

2 potatoes – diced into small cubes

2 big onions – diced into small cubes

1 garlic – minced

2 red chillies – seeded and sliced thinly

1 cup of mixed vegetables

1/2 cup of chinese parsley and onion leaves (daun sop dan daun bawang dihiris halus)

salt to taste

white pepper powder (ni boleh letak lebih ikut sukacita masing2)

a bit of oil for frying

Method :

Heat the oil. Fry the onions, garlic. Add in the potatoes. Fry for a few minutes till the potatoes are 3/4 cooked. Then add in the corned beef, mixed vegetables, red chillies and the chinese parsley and onion leaves (daun sop/daun bawang). Stir thorougly, and add salt and pepper to taste. Once cooked, off the fire and leave it to cool before spreading them to the dough.
