Matcha Cream Cheese Pineapple Rolls (绿茶奶酪凤梨卷)

IMG_9608

INTRODUCTION

I have my popular Golf balls pineapple tarts in this post  Golf Ball Pineapple Tarts (凤梨酥)- Part 2

IMG_38481

I also have the open face traditional pineapple tarts in this post: Open Faced Pineapple Tarts (凤梨挞)

IMG_78811

In this year, I have issued the Taiwanese Pineapple Cakes in this recipe: Taiwanese Pineapple Cake (台式凤梨酥)

IMG_2954

But I am lacking another popular pineapple tarts recipe in the form of rolled dough or pineapple rolls.. So I thought this year I will share with readers this pineapple rolls to make my pineapple tarts recipes complete.

IMG_9591

I am rather unhappy with my new kitchen gadget, the special rolling pin for this pineapple rolls. I did not research before I bought this cheap gadget in a bakery shop.. When I tried to use, I found that it is not as easy as what I thought. In fact, it is quite tough as the dough is pressed and difficult to roll.

IMG_9622

Subsequently, I search in the internet and I found that there is another type of pump which will give a better shape for rolling. I would advise if you do not have any gadget and intend to buy, do buy those that come with a piston type.

IMG_9612

In the previous year, many readers are asking me if I have any cream cheese pineapple tarts dough recipe, so i have decided to incorporate this cream cheese and added a green tea flavouring. The taste is delicious and texture is nice but personally, I would prefer the traditional golf balls type of pastry which you can refer to the post above.. But if you are looking for a change, you can always tried this..

IMG_9626

I have a big Kenwood Chef mixer, and at time it becomes a burden for the preparation of a small quantity of dough or creaming with butter. Therefore, I have resorted to the use of a food processor in the preparation of dough. This is not a must, you can always use the traditional “rubbing method” or “creaming method” of creaming butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Feel free to use the method that are most suitable to your work flow.

IMG_34631

If you need quick and easy pineapple jam recipes, you can refer to this post: Quick and Easy 30 minutes Homemade Pineapple Jam (30 分钟简易凤梨酱)

IMG_9600



WHAT IS REQUIRED

Servings: About 30-40 rolls depending on size

IMG_95741

  • 400 grams of ready made pineapple jam (divided into 40 pineapple jam rolls of about 10 grams each)
  • 400 grams of cakes flour (10% or 25 grams can be substitute with corn flour or custard powder)
  • 125 grams of cold butter 
  • 125 grams of cold cream cheese
  • 30 grams of icing sugar
  • One egg (lightly beaten)
  • 1 teaspoon of matcha green tea powder

Note that this dough can also be used for golf ball pineapple tarts and open face pineapple tarts

IMG_9604



STEPS OF PREPARATION

PicMonkey Collage1

  • Shape the pineapple jam into an oblong shape of your desired size. In this illustration , it is about 2 cm long with 1 cm diameter.

  • In a food processor, place the butter, cream cheese, flour , icing sugar and green tea powder, pause blend for 1 minute until the flour and butter and cream cheese combined and become crumble form. Add the beaten eggs, pause blend again until it forms a pliable dough. If it is too dry, you can add milk tablespoon by tablespoon. If it is too wet, you can add flour tablespoon by tablespoon . Do not over blend as it may yields gluten that make the dough chewy. Normal creaming method of beating butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy can be used too.

  • Transfer the dough out to the work surface, if it is too soft, chill in the fridge for 15-30 minutes or  until it is easier to handle.

PicMonkey Collage2

  • Pre-heat the oven to 160 degree Celsius.

  • Take some portion of the chilled dough, place on top of a baking paper, put another piece of baking paper on top, roll it to about 3-4 mm thickness. Take away the top covering baking paper, use the special rolling pin to roll it once for the pattern to appear. Take one dough and roughly measure the size the required. Cut into required size using either a knife or pizza rolling knife.

PicMonkey Collage3

  • Carefully turn over the dough, put a pineapple jam on top on one part of the dough and it ensuring that all the jams are covered. Transfer the pineapple rolls to the baking tray, egg wash if preferred  and baked in the pre-heated oven of 160 degree Celsius for 12-15 minutes.

  • For egg washing, hand beaten 2 egg yolks and add 2 big tablespoons of water and 2 drops of oil. Sift before application.

IMG_9618


CONCLUSION

i  believed this must be one of my ugliest looking batches of pineapple tarts .. Though taste is good but I believed the look can be further improved. Do give it a try if you wanted a change this year.. It is still melt in the mouth with tint of green tea flavour in the dough. It does go well with the pineapple jam.

Pumpkin Huat Kuih (金瓜发糕)

IMG_8229

INTRODUCTION

This should be one of my very last recipe of Huat Kuih as I have at least more than 10 of them..

IMG_8245

The original recipe is called pumpkin steamed muffins and is from a very experienced blogger – Aunty Yochana.

IMG_8247

I did grumble with my Facebook Group that in English speaking group, huat kuih recipe is always not a welcoming recipe as it is viewed as superstition .. However, if the recipe is called a steamed muffins, more English Educated readers will try the recipe.. Is it not a funny phenomenon?

IMG_8241

Well, putting aside these grumbling, this is a nice huat kuih and I loved the yellow vibrant colour of the steamed cake. It can be as tasty as you want it to be and I do not have much thing to write about this recipe.

IMG_8243


WHAT IS REQUIRED

Recipe adapted from: Yochana’s Cake Delight! : Steamed Pumpkin Muffin

Servings: About 6 huat kuih

IMG_82181

  • 100 grams of steamed pumpkin and mashed
  • 200 grams of self raising flour
  • 130 grams of white sugar
  • 150 grams of hot water or coconut milk or milk
  • 30 grams of cooking oil or melted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder

IMG_8235


STEPS OF PRARATION

  • Get ready a steamer with water capable of steaming the Kuih for at least 20 minutes.

PicMonkey Collage1

  • Steam the pumpkin and mash into puree form. In another bowl, put hot water and add castor sugar, stir until sugar dissolved. Mix the syrup with the pumpkin puree and stir until well combined. If preferred, you can put into the blender and blend until fine.

  • Sift the baking powder and self raising flour into a bowl. Make a well and add the pumpkin solution in 3 stages, stir until well mixed. Transfer it to some cupcake cups and fill the cups with the batter until at least 95% full.

PicMonkey Collage2

  • Prior to steaming, lightly grease a scissor or a knife and cut a criss-cross on top of the batter. Steam in the steamer for 15-20 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre come out clean. It is best that the cupcakes cups be pre-steamed before filling of the batter. You shall use high heat in the entire process of steaming. Best served hot as a snack.

IMG_8233


CONCLUSION

Not a difficult recipe but taste is delicious. Do give it a try and see if it suits your taste bud.

Kuih Abok Abok Sago (锥型西米蒸糕)

IMG_7769

INTRODUCTION

If you like kuih bronok or sago cake as in this post : Steamed Sago Cake–Kuih Bronok or Lapis Sagu(西米椰丝蒸糕,珍珠糕), I believed you will like this cake too.

IMG_5806

They are basically  the same type of cake but with slightly different presentation. While kuih bronok is more common in the east side of Peninsular Malaysia, this cake apparently is more common among the nonya society. However, it may not be exactly like what you saw in this recipe.

IMG_7753

The more common one is white or transparent coloured cone with some gula melaka oozes out from the sago balls or the green and red combination sago balls. I only discovered this after I prepared the cake. After I posted in some Facebook Group, apparently most members have never seen this pattern before.

IMG_7763

Well, I can’t claim that  this is my concept and when I googled recipe and this recipe popped out, i like the picture and so I followed the recipe. I have to thank the blog owner for such a detail creation : Colors of the Mountain ~ Lite Home. Apparently, this shape of preparation symbolizes a mountain and on the white signifying the cloud or snow, blue is the sky, green is the forest and brown is the earth or soil.

IMG_7771

If you asked me which type I preferred, I will say that it is cone shaped abok abok sago. This recipe add the shredded coconut to the sago and therefore the sago balls do not stick too tightly to each other and personally, I prefer this softer texture which is not overly chewy.

IMG_7777

Some abok abok sago added cubes of gula melaka inside the cone before steaming, I found that this method wasted a lot of palm sugar which tends to drip out form the cone and I personally prefer to add gula melaka syrup during serving. In fact, the syrup is rather optional as the sago balls have already been sweetened.

IMG_7733


WHAT IS REQUIRED

Recipe inspired from: COLORS OF THE MOUNTAIN

Servings: About 6-8 Abok abok sago depends on size

Ingredients

IMG_76791

  • 200 grams of sago balls
  • 100 grams of shredded coconut
  • 30 grams of palm sugar (gula melaka or gula apong )
  • 30 grams of white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of concentrated bunga telang juice
  • At least 8 pieces of banana leaves with size of 15 cm x 20 cm
  • Some green pandan extract
  • Pinches of salt

IMG_7735


STEPS OF PREPARATION

PicMonkey Collage1

  • Wash the sago balls and divide into 4 portions. Portion A = 20 grams = white colour, portion B = 40 grams = add the bunga telang concentrate. portion C = 60 grams, add drops of green pandan flavouring, portion D = 80 grams , put the gula melaka. Stir until well mixed. add additional water such that it just merely cover the sago balls. Let them soaked for 1 hour before proceeding the next step. Do not add too much water, you can gradually add water along the way.

  • After one hour, drain away any excess water in each bowl. Divide the shredded coconut to the four bowls with about the same ratio. Add the castor sugar to the the 3 layers using the same ratio. Add additional palm sugar to the brown sago if desired. Stir until well mixed.

PicMonkey Collage2

  • Cut the banana leaves into 15 cm x 20 cm .Add drops of oil to the boiling water and blanch or scald the banana leaves until they are soft. drain and set aside.

  • Once cool, fold the cone with about 5 cm diameter at the base. Put some white sago balls, follow by some blue and green and brown colour balls.

PicMonkey Collage3

  • Use a table spoon to press firmly downwards and tuck the excess to the bottom of the cone. Seal with a toothpick  Steam under high heat for at least 15-20 minutes. Cool completely before open the parcel and can be served with additional gula melaka or shredded coconut.

IMG_7761

Note:

  • Please ensure that sealing is fastened and the banana leaves does not break, If you cone is too high, there will be a tendency to fall when steaming and sago may leaked out. If your cone is securely fastened, you can also lay down the cone during the steaming.

  • You can select your own colour like in my kuih bronok recipe. Some recipe call for single colour only instead of 4 in this recipe. You can also add grated gula melaka to the centre of the sago balls before steaming.

IMG_7737


CONCLUSION

I have to be frank that my wrapping need further improvement as it is not fasten enough. I told myself I will better myself in my next attempt.

Malay Savoury Custard Cake–Kuih Bakar Berlauk (马来咸香烤糕)

IMG_7827

INTRODUCTION

At times, I did not have a chance to taste some Malay delicacies because it has beef that I do not consume and I knew I have missed out a lot of Malay delicacies.

IMG_7829

When there is a Malay wedding or important occasion, I always saw Malay members prepared this dish to bring to gathering or party. I am unsure if these was sold in the stores but apparently, it is a common item during Malay buffets. The colour captured my attention and it is very beautiful with patches of dark coloured meat.

IMG_7833

I goggled the recipe and after analysing the ingredients, I knew it will taste great and of course, I used chicken instead of minced beef. Well the taste is much better than my expectation. I especially love the cumin and curry flavoured savoury custard cake.

IMG_7839

Kuih bakar berlauk literally translated as a baked savoury dish cake.  Lauk means meat or vegetable dishes and therefore the dish is definitely savoury but there is also a sweet version version as well. My recipe called it kuih bakar pandan but some recipe called it kuih cara pandan.

IMG_7847

If you are interested to get the recipe of the sweet version of kuih bakar, you can refer to this post: Local Baked Custard? Kuih Bakar Pandan Or Kuih Kemboja (香兰烘糕)

IMG_97061

The difference is because of the type of mould one uses. Traditionally, both kuih bakar berlauk and kuih cara pandan was prepared using a big brass flower mould. However, some have also used the kuih bahulu mould for the preparation. Both these methods will require to cook the cake over the stove. Since I do not have the traditional mould, for this recipe, I have used egg tart mould and baked in the oven. It is much faster than over the stove.

IMG_7831


WHAT IS REQUIRED

Servings: About 15 egg tarts size bakar berlauk

IMG_77891

  • 150 grams of minced beef or minced chicken or other meats of your choice
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 2 shallots (chopped)
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cumin powder
  • 1 teaspoon of meat curry powder
  • 1 red chilli , sliced thinly
  • 2 sprigs of Chinese celery , chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of oil
  • Sugar to taste
  • Pinches of salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon of dark soya sauce (optional but preferred if chicken is used)

IMG_77941

  • 200 grams or ml thick coconut milk
  • 200 grams of plain water
  • 150 grams of plain flour
  • 3 eggs
  • Pinches of salt
  • Pinches of turmeric powder

IMG_7837


STEPS OF PREPARATION

PicMonkey Collage1

  • In a frying pan, put one tablespoon of oil, sauté the minced garlics and shallots until fragrant. Add the cumin and curry powder, stir fry for 1 minute, add the minced meat, stir fry until the meat is soft . Add pinches of salt, dark soya sauce, and sugar to taste. Stir until well mixed. Off the heat and keep aside.

PicMonkey Collage2

  • Heavily greased 12-15 cupcake cups or egg tarts cup and pre-heat the oven to 200 degree Celsius.

  • In a bowl, sift in the flour, turmeric powder and put pinches of salt. Crack the eggs and stir until it form a thick paste. Gradually add the coconut milk and water until it forms a watery batter.

  • Pour some batter on the mould, put a tablespoon of the minced meat, some chilli and Chinese celery. Pour more batter until it reaches about 90% full. Bake in the pre-heated oven of 200 degree Celsius for 10-15 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.. Timing will very much depends on size of the mould and thickness of the batter. Note that it is common that the custard may puff up during baking and it will drop again when cooled.

IMG_7849


CONCLUSION

If you have never tried this delicious snack before, I strongly recommended you to give it a go. If personally you do not like cumin powder, just omit it and it will be equally delicious. Remember that the original recipe is beef based but if you can’t take beef, feel free to change to chicken or other meats.

Lepat Pisang (蒸香蕉糕)

IMG_7483

INTRODUCTION

I have shared two recipes in the last two days – Kuih Bongkong or Kuih Jongkong (马来娘惹元宝/荷包糕)and Apam Berkuah (娘惹米糕). To be frank, these two recipes are not very well received because many readers have never seen such a kuih before and it is not commonly sold nowadays.

IMG_7580

In fact, I have prepared 3 kuih in that morning, and the last one is this kuih lepat pisang or mashed banana parcel. This shall be one the easiest among the three and should be more popular than the other two. It was still rather common in the kuih stalls.

IMG_7469

This is kuih that have many variations and hence it may not look the same in all pictures. If brown sugar was used, it will appear brownish and if white sugar was used, it is white. As for the fillings, usually sliced bananas are used. However, I have also eaten those who wrapped shredded coconut instead.

IMG_7471

As for the banana, you can used any type of banana though I will recommend reader to use cheaper banana that cannot be eaten raw such as pisang tanduk or pisang berangan.

IMG_7485

It is a rather tasty kuih, it is soft and wobbly. Preparation is extremely fast and chances of failure are near zero. In addition, the recipe can be substituted with mash sweet potatoes or mash tapioca.

IMG_7479


WHAT IS REQUIRED

Servings: About 6-8 lepat pisang

 IMG_74181

  • 200 grams of banana
  • 80 grams of white sugar or palm sugar (gula apong or gula melaka)
  • 80 grams of plain flour
  • 50 grams of shredded coconut
  • At least 8 pieces of banana leaves of size 20 cm x 20 cm
  • 1 banana additional for filling cut into thick slice

STEPS OF PREPARATION

PicMonkey Collage1

  • Cut the banana leaves into 20 cm x 20 cm and scald in hot boiling water with drops of cooking oil for about 1-2 minutes to soften the banana leaves. Drain and set aside.

  • In a big bowl, mash the banana, add shredded coconut and sugar, stir until well combined. Sift in the plain flour and stir until well mixed.

PicMonkey Collage2

  • Take a banana leaves, put 1 tablespoons of the mash banana batter at the centre, put a few pieces of banana and top with another tablespoon of the batter.. Fold up both sides and followed by tuck in the other two sizes under the parcel. Steamed at high heat for 10-15 minutes until the cake is cooked.

IMG_7489


CONCLUSION

An easy peasy recipe that you can even ask your kids to prepare. Do give it a try and see if this recipe suits your taste buds. Yes, remember you can use additional shredded coconut as the filling. If you have sweet potatoes or tapioca, you can use it to substitute the banana and become “lepak ubi” .

Kuih Bongkong or Kuih Jongkong (马来娘惹元宝/荷包糕)

IMG_7497

INTRODUCTION

In this region, there are many types of kuih or cakes and I can’t possibly tasted all of them especially if the kuih is regional and  has become less and less common. This is one of the many kuih that I have never tried before.

IMG_7521

I am eating a piece of the kuih while writing this post  and I should say I like it. It is a rice flour cake, soft and flavoured by palm sugar..It is rather addictive especially after it was chilled in the fridge.

IMG_7523

There are two names.. Malay called kuih bongkong and apparently, the Peranakan community called it kuih Jongkong. There is not much differences between the two version and there are basically the same . The nonya version usually added blue pea flower to the kuih whereas the Malay version is usually green (pandan) and yellow. ..I understand that this kuih is especially common in the state of Perak and Penang.

IMG_7666

Jongkong in Malay means ingot, it was called as such possibly because it look liked an ingot. I heard some Chinese colloquially called it “wallet cake” meaning the cake looked like a wallet. I have difficulty to find out any additional information pertaining to the cake.

IMG_7515

One of the distinct feature of the kuih is its wrapping into a parcel and I really felt a sense of achievement to be able to wrap it correctly. Such type of wrapping is definitely essential as the melted palm sugar will be collected by the “boat” made from banana leaves. Some of the Malay recipes have coconut milk being added to to the steaming too. But in this illustration, no coconut milk was being used.

IMG_7527

Well, don’t be deterred if do not know how to wrap. I saw some recipes prepared this is a cup without banana leaves and palm sugar syrup were poured on top of the rice cake. Any differences, not much differences except the lack of banana leaves aroma.

IMG_7668


WHAT IS REQUIRED

Servings: 8-10 kuih bongkong

IMG_74291

Rice Flour Batter

  • 125 grams of rice flour
  • 20 grams tapioca flour
  • 50 grams of castor sugar
  • 200 grams or ml of coconut milk
  • 500 grams of plain water
  • Pinches of salt

Others

  • 3 tablespoon of thick blue pea flower (bunga telang concentrate)
  • 100 grams of palm sugar (Gula apong or gula melaka) – cut into small pieces
  • 100 ml or grams of coconut milk (not included in this illustration to be put at the last stage).- optional
  • At least 10 pieces of banana leaves with dimension of about 20 cm x 24 cm

IMG_7664


STEPS OF PREPARATION

  • Cut the banana leaves into 20 cm x 24 cm. Get ready a pot of boiling water, add a few drops of cooking oil,  blanch the banana leaves for 2-3 minutes until it is soft. Otherwise it will be very difficult to wrap and there is a tendency to break.

PicMonkey Collage1

  • Put the rice flour ingredients in a pot, stir until well mixed. Transfer the rice flour to a stove and heat under medium heat until it starts to thicken. Constant stirring is required as thickening can be fast. In the event that it thickens too fast, add a few more tablespoons of water to the batter. Slightly lumpy batter is acceptable.

  • Transfer 1/3 of the ingredients and add the bunga telang concentrate. Stir until well mixed.

PicMonkey Collage2

  • Put a piece of the blanched banana leaves, put about 1 tablespoon of palm sugar (I use semi solid gula apong). Put about 2 tablespoons of white rice batter on top follow by about 1 tablespoon of blue rice batter. You can adjust the size of the kuih according to your preference.

  • Use your hand to pull the longer side together (24cm side).

PicMonkey Collage3

  • With one hand holding/pinching the longer side, use the other hand to fold the shorter side (20cm) equally and push these ends to the centre. Perform the same for the other side. Pierce a tooth pick to the centre of the leaves.

  • If you want to add the coconut milk, you will need to secure one side first before you can add the coconut milk. Slightly tilted one side such that the coconut milk will not flow out. You can then proceed to fold the other side.

  • Steam the kuih in a steamer with hot boiling water for at least 15-20 minutes. Best chilled before serving. If preferred, cooked coconut milk can be added.

IMG_7517


CONCLUSION

I do have difficulty to explain the wrapping part. You may want to Google “Kuih jongkong video” to have a better understanding. If you have never tried the kuih, please do try. If you are not confidence about the wrapping, just forget the wrapping, transfer the batter to the muffin cups, steam until set and served with coconut milk and palm sugar. Some stalls do sell in plastic mould instead of the traditional banana leaves.
