Chocolate Wassant @ 'Da Li Shi' Bun

I first came across this chocolate wassant bread was 3 years ago but till today I still not knowing where this bread is originated. Some said it's from Japan ! Not many bread shops selling it here though. It looks pretty much like a croissant but it is NOT! This is a very low yeasted bread and yet very soft and delicious. I've found some readymade chocolate paste at the store some time ago and wait no more to give it ago......FINALLY !

So, here's the recipe.
Ingredients :
Starter Dough :
225gm   all purpose flour
1 tspn    yeast
100ml    water
(combine all ingredients to form a soft dough and let to rest for an hour or till double in size)

Main Dough :
225gm  all purpose flour
100gm  sugar
1 egg
60ml   water
70gm  butter
1 tspn  salt

*500gm   homemade chocolate paste, flatten into 6" square
(will try to post a homemade ones)

Method :
(1) once the starter dough is ready, tear into pieces and add into main ingredients.
(2) combine all ingredients and mix to form a soft dough then let to rest for an hour or till double in size.
(3) place dough to a slightly floured working table and knead till smooth, the dough should be very soft, so must handle with care.
(4) then roll out flat slightly bigger than the chocolate paste.
(5) place in chocolate paste and wrap dough over the paste till totally sealed.
(6) again roll wrapped dough into 9x13" size and fold into 3 and roll flat again, like making a pastry dough.
(7) repeat one more time and finally roll into 12x16", then cut into triangle shape (size as desired).
(8) roll each up like a swiss roll then place them to baking tray, again let to rest for 30-40 mins.
(9) brush on egg glaze then bake at preheated oven 180-185'C for about 20 mins or till brown.

I made the shape looking much like a croissant where you don't need to. It looks nice even if shorter.

This is such a mouthwatering product where ever it came from.....surely irresistible. I bet you won't want to miss this out. Enjoy & have fun !
