Roti boy – Mexican bun

We, Indonesian, called it roti boy, but maybe you know it as Mexican bun. This is my weekend project, as this last weekend of January, I don’t want to go outside, just want at home. My hubby who have a football league at noon, also cancelled his schedule, He also want to be at home with us, yeay! πŸ™‚

So, to make Adib happy, I asked him to have a kitchen’s project together. First he want to make cupcake, Green velvet cupcake just like he love. But, I’m not in my mood to make anything sweet πŸ˜€ When, I asked him to help me make bread, Suddenly he jump , and take the bread flour.He want to use the bread flour since 4 months ago,since We never make any bread, so it was never been used.

Found the recipe at hereΒ  , lovely and inspiring blog πŸ™‚

Dough :
250gre bread flour
40gr sugar
4gr yeast
1/2 beaten egg
135gr fresh mimlk
30 gr butter

Filling :
100gr butter
1/2 tsp vanilla powder
35gr brown sugar
50gr grated cheese

50gr Butter
40gr sugar
1/2 beaten egg

50gr grated cheese for sprinkle

1. Filling : Mix butter, vanilla powder and brown sugar until smooth. Divide the mixture into two, Add grated cheese to one of the mixture, put it in the fridge until harden and divide to 5 balls each plan and cheese mixture.
2. Topping, Beat the butter and sugar, until cooperate and smooth, add egg and flour. Put the mixture on pipping bag and keep in the fridge until ready to use.
3.Dough, knead all ingridients together except butter for 10 minutes until smooth, then add butter, continue kneading process untill elastic , smooth and not sticky for about 30 minutes.
4. DIvide the dough into 10 bun, and let it rest for 15 minutes.

The basic bread’s recipe can be used for any kind of bread, named it! Milk loaf bread, TUna or chicken floss bread, Chocolate or cheese filling bread ,Pizza bread, Burger or sandwich bun , Anykind of less sweet bread, You can used this simple recipe.

Just keep patience to make the dough smooth and elastic, since I only have simple mixer, so I used my hand, 30 minutes kneading the dough, and it gave me a great bun result! πŸ™‚

Maybe, my Roti boy looks pale in color, it because I don’t use coffee, because Adib did’t like coffee. When the bun came out fresh from the oven, Me, Adib and ayah can’t wait to try, it’s so delicious! πŸ™‚ Enjoy our lovely weekend, even we had a grocery shopping at the afternoon.

This last few days, Not in my mood to take any picture of Adib’s school snack, only this picture from last week πŸ˜€

Strawberry Swirl pound cake

When I was saw the recipe, I felt in love with the collaboration color of those berries in here πŸ™‚ Unfortunately, I only have one kind of berries, which is strawberry. So, I decided to follow the recipe using strawberry.

Ingredients :
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1-1/2 cup strawberry
1 cup sugar
1-1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp Baking powder
2 large eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla powder
1/2 cup yogurt

How to:
1. Puree the strawberry, set a side
2. Using an electric mixer, beat sugar and butter until fluffy, add eggs and vanilla.
3. Add flour alternating with yougurt in 3 additions.
4. Take 4 tbs of batter to the strawberry puree, mix well.
5. Pour half batter to the loaf pan that already buttered and line with parchament papper. Then pour half of stawberry puree, make swirl. Pour the remaining half batter and top with remaining half strawberry puree and make the last swirl.
6. Bake for 180dC for 40-50 minutes or a toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean.

You can use not just one berries, for different swirl color. blackberry or blueberry swirl with stawberry or raspberry will make a beautiful swirl.Give additional strawberry cube if you want. And you can substitute Yogurt with the original recipe using Sour cream or buttermilk.

Definitly will make this one again, because I love the texture, it was very moist. Really enjoy when it was dipped into a hot chocolate or milk πŸ™‚
