Last week, my friend, T, invited us to her place and got the little ones to help with baking bread roll. I must say it was fun and the bread delicious and the thick-skinned me got her to share the recipe with me. She got it via a Chinese app and since my Chinese isn’t that good, she translated the ingredients and their quantity for me. I finally got down to baking it this morning so here’s a record of it.
250g bread flour
30g castor sugar
50g whipping cream
75g milk (slightly warm so that it can activate the yeast)
15g unsalted butter at room temperature
I didn’t have the bread maker and did the dough using the standmixer with the dough hook. Basically place all the ingredients together except for the butter and mix together. When they are mixed well, add in the butter and continue to knead until the dough no longer sticks to the side of the mixer bowl. Then run the window pane test.
Once it’s ready, place it in a lightly oiled bowl and let it proof for about 40 min to 1 hour or until it has increased to double the volume.
While waiting for the dough to rise, prepare the next set of ingredients – the coconut spread.
70g coconut flakes (from Cold Storage)
25g castor sugar
15g milk powder
10g unsalted butter at room temperature
Mix all the above ingredients together except for the coconut flakes.
The recipe given recommended using a cake tin that measures 27.6 x 17.8cm but I just use whatever tin or baking tray I have.
Roll the dough into a rectangular shape and spread the mixture onto the dough.
Sprinkle the coconut flakes on top of the mixture evenly and then roll the dough from the furthest end to the one nearest to you.
Cut the dough into 12 pieces and place them onto the baking tray.
After this, let it proof for about 20 minutes. Do allow some space in between each roll as they will expand when they are being baked. Meanwhile, switch on the oven to 180C.
Before placing the tray into the oven, I did an egg wash with the remaining amount of egg. Bake for about 20 to 30 minutes depending on your oven.
So, that’s lunch for today. Thanks, Trisa for sharing the recipe! I hope I have translated correctly!
