More leftover found in my fridge.... the little bit of this & that bean paste ! First thing came to me was BREAD. Yeah, bread is always my favourite thing to do. Its fun and easy to manage. And I prefer using the prefermented method on my preparation cause it always give me soft, moist and durable bread. However, still the best to keep freshly baked bread into plastic bags individually & sealed it after cooled. Its the only way to maintain the moisture and to keep the bread stays soft for days. You may keep them into plastic container but its less satisfying though.
Here, let me show you the preparation.
100gm bread flour
2 tspn yeast
(combine all ingredients, mixed well then leave to rest for an hour)
400gm bread flour
2 TB milk powder
4 TB sugar
1 tspn salt
100gm cold butter, chopped
: 250gm red bean paste & 250gm mung bean paste
(divide into 50gm each)
(1) combine main dough ingredients into a big mixing bowl except salt & butter, then add in prefermented dough and stir to form a sticky dough.
(2) add in salt and butter and continue kneading till everything well cooperated, then set aside to rest for an hour or till dough double in size.
(3) once ready, press & punch dough to release excess air and continue kneading till smooth.
(4) now, place dough to working table and divide into about 100gm each, then insert each dough with desired bean paste and sealed.
(5) sprinkle some all purpose flour onto working table and flatten each dough with rolling pin into oblong oval shape (about 13" long) as shown in picture.
(6) then cut flattened dough into stripes and place in some raisins.
(7) next, roll and twist everything up into rope shape, as picture shown above.
(8) finally, join both end into one then place each of them to a 13x19cm parchment paper individually and then fit them into a 9x13" baking tray.
(9) now, set them aside to rest for an hour, the second proving before entering to the oven.
(10) when ready, bake them into preheated oven about 185'C for about 25-30 minutes or till everything is well brown. No egg glazing needed. Check the bottom of the bread if it is in good light brown colour, then it is done.
(11) leave bread to cool before garnished with icing sugar.
Oh... yumm.... they turned out looking great and pretty tempting too.
And it looks even more indulgence after sugar coating. Just can't wait to dig into one of them ! Hope you guys will love it too. Enjoy the week ahead everyone !
