Pandan Buns...香兰面包

Hi Hi everyone, Hope that you are having a great week ahead.
Do you still remember this Kopitiam milk buns....
With a little tweak you can have the same soft and nice texture buns but with another flavour. Today i am going to share a pandan flavour kopitiam buns. 

Nice and soft buns are ready for tea break!! These buns are so good to go with any spread or you can even have it on it own. YUM!!

     Pandan buns (香兰面包)
           adapted from my pervious kopitiam milk bun... here
        * makes 12 buns 

        **Ingredients for overnight sponge dough:
         215g high protein or bread flour
         125g plain water (cold)
         2g instant yeast (1/2 teaspoon)
        To do:
  • Add all the ingredients in a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients to a rough dough by hands, Do not need to knead till smooth. Cover with cling film and immediately store in the fridge for overnight. (at least 12 hours)
    To prepare the buns:
    **1 quantity of above overnight sponge dough
    90g high protein flour
    30g egg (1/2 large egg)
    4g instant yeast (1/2 teaspoon)
    3g fine salt (1/2 teaspoon)
    60g sugar (i used 50g)
    45g butter (room temperature)
    1 Tablespoon concentrated pandan juice (cold)
    ( will share how i get the concentrate pandan juice in the coming post)
    To Do:
  • Tear the overnight sponge dough into pieces and add all ingredients except butter into the mixing bowl, knead till smooth dough.
  • Add in butter and knead until smooth and elastic. Cover with cling flim and set aside to proof till double in size (about 40 minutes)
  • Punch down the dough to expel air, equal divide the dought to 12 portions @ 50g each, shape into round balls. Place dough in a greased rectangle pan. Let it proof for  another 45 minutes or until  double its size.
 Punch down the dough to expel air from the dough. Divide it into 12 portions. Weight it into 50 gm per portion.

Roll it round then place it into a greased rectangle baking pan. (mine was 22.5cm width x 27cm lenght and 6cm depth) Put them a little bit far apart.
The round dough will stick to each other after proofing.

  • Bake at pre-heated oven at 170C for 20 minutes on low rack.
  • Tilt the buns out of the baking pan once it is out of the oven.
These pandan buns are soft and cottonny ..haha texture just like a cotton ball!!
Would you like to have a piece for tea?? ^_^
I am going to have mine with some homemade kaya made with the mircowave oven!!!
It is fast and fuss free..want try making your own too??
(will share the homemade kaya, the mircowave oven way soon!!!)

Chewy Korean Mochi Bread ... (QQ 韩式麻磁面包)

I have been wanted to bake this Korean mochi bread for quite sometimes but did not take any action until a friend of mine ask about it. She sent me a pack of this Korean mochi bread premix and ask me to try. Thanks to LK for sending me the pack of Korean mochi bread premix. This premix is not cheap, a pack of 550g cost rm12.50.  本想老早就来玩玩这麻磁面包担是就一直没行动 :p 友LK拿一包韩式QQ面包预拌粉给我,就赶快试一试吧!! Nice looking little buns, my second ask me "mummy, its this some kind of DINO eggs??" Haha..what do you think? Do you feel the same as my second? This is my first attempt for this Korean mochi bread. I am quite happy with the out come of this Korean Mochi Bread. I have 2 recipes with me when i wanted to try out, which i can't decided which to use. In the end i decided to use the smaller portion recipe. I was thinking if it doesn't turn out well, as least i did not waste too much ingredients :p The recipe i am using is from a fb friend, Pheony. She is a great baker. All her cakes,
