Cooking, creating and gardening - things I like to do when I'm not working.
Nice looking buns. I think I should get a lesson or two from you :-) Recipes? Do I send a msg to you personally on this?
Hi Nasifriet, I've made chinese baked buns a few times now: http://alittlebitofplumleaf.blogspot.com/search/label/BunsThe dough recipe is actually from Everybody Eats Well in Flanders:http://everybodyeatswell.blogspot.com/2010/09/how-to-make-basic-sweet-bread-dough-by.htmlThe only filling I've mentioned how I made, is Baked Char Siu Buns 叉燒餐包 :http://alittlebitofplumleaf.blogspot.com/2010/10/baked-char-siu-buns.htmlNext time I make buns I will take more photos and blog the ingredients & quantities. Some of it is on the spur of the moment fillings and I go by eye rather than weights & measures. I will take notes as I make them next time!Thanks for looking!
Oh my goodness! That sure is a whole lot of bun. How on earth do you find the time, not only to bake buns, decorate cakes and sew, all with a baby in the house. Hats off to you.
lol Shaz! Only one pleasure at a time! Yes, was a double batch of buns as I knew they'd get shared out amongst my Mum, older Bro & a friend! I also made Crispy Roast Pork and Steamed Taro Cake which I've not blogged yet! I was thoroughly worn out after Christmas was over I can tell you!I find the evenings after my dinner the best time to work. Baby Minh is asleep (or Mr Leaf is home) & I am free to mix up bun dough, shape and fill and leave ov'night to prove. I glaze and bake in the morning. Sometimes I get a snippet of time mid-morning after Minh's bottle he may nap so I have to take opportunity when I can.Am itching to start next sewing project - curtains for Minh's room but not found the time yet!
Wow - you're amazing! You've a one person Chinese bakery! I'd love one of those sausage buns right now!
Su-Lin, I use a stand-alone mixer to miss up my dough - it leaves me time to deal with attention-requiring babies! I was thoroughly worn out after Christmas though!I've almost fully recovered from the manic bun bake-off and contemplating on making some more soon! :0)
