Semi Naked Chocolate Cake with Fresh Fruits and Whipped Cream 鮮果忌廉朱古力半裸蛋糕

Here’s what I made for my daughter’s 11th birthday. I was grateful that the government of Ontario allowed people to create social circles of up to 10 people since mid June so we could bring a cake to my aunt’s house the weekend before my daughter’s birthday for dinner. On the day of her birthday … Continue reading Semi Naked Chocolate Cake with Fresh Fruits and Whipped Cream 鮮果忌廉朱古力半裸蛋糕

Black Sesame Glutinous Rice Balls (Sugar Free) 黑芝麻湯圓(無糖)

Here comes my sugar free glutinous rice balls recipe that was made with Lakanto golden monk fruit sweetener. When I attempted my first trial I made them a bit too big and my family members complained about the size. Later I adjusted the dough to filling ratios to 3:2 and they came out perfect. 這是使用羅漢果天然黃糖製作的無糖湯圓,第一次試做時做得太大粒,家人說吃完之後太飽了。後來EC把皮餡的比例調整為3比2,這個比例十分好! … Continue reading Black Sesame Glutinous Rice Balls (Sugar Free) 黑芝麻湯圓(無糖)

The idea is very similar to Whole Wheat Sausage Buns (Poolish Starter) but I used a stiffer preferment this time. 今天準備分享中種麵糰製作的麵包食譜。這與全麥腸仔包(液種法)的製作方法十分相似,只是中種麵糰比液種麵糰水份更少。 Generally speaking, the sponge contains 60 to 70% of the total flour amount and it can be made with 50% … Continue reading HK Style Pineapple Buns (Sponge Method) 港式菠蘿包(中種法)

Basic White Bread Pain de Mie (Tangzhong Method) 頂角白吐司(湯種法)

Last time I shared with you my Basic White Bread recipe. This is exactly the same recipe but made with the Tangzhong method. Why Tangzhong method, you may ask. Tangzhong makes the bread extra soft. The bread will be able to maintain moisture longer compared to one made with the straight dough method.過去分享過頂角白吐司的食譜,這次也是使用相同食譜,可是卻變成湯種法。為什麼要用湯種呢?因為湯種可令麵糰更加軟熟,麵包鎖水更好,比直接法的麵包更能保持柔軟。 So how … Continue reading Basic White Bread Pain de Mie (Tangzhong Method) 頂角白吐司(湯種法)
