Freshly and Lovingly Baked on : 13th July 2014
Another interesting method of making bread which I have never attempted. Scalded flour. It promises soft bread for a few days and it arouses my curiousity very badly. I have to try it!
I have a constant supply of milk and organic ground black sesame seeds in my pantry since i like to add the sesame seeds into my milk as a daily dose of nutrients. So I have decided to incorporate these into the bakes today.
30g Boiling Water
25g Bread flour
3g Granulated Sugar
200g Bread Flour
50g Scalded Flour
25g Unsalted Butter
35g Granulated Sugar
2g Instant Yeast
9g Heavy Cream
Sesame Seeds fillings
50g Organic Ground Black Sesame
40g Fresh Milk
Mix sugar and flour together before pouring in boiling water. Stir in the flour and ensure no visible flour. Let it to cool down completely before using.
This is how it looks like.
While waiting, prepare the main dough ingredients. Mix them all into a mixing bowl except the butter. Once the scalded flour has cooled down, add it in. Knead it till smooth and elastic for about 10 minutes before adding in the butter and knead it in till incorporated.
Simply mix all the ingredients of the fillings well and set aside.
Let dough proof till double in size before deflating the dough. Divide it up into 6 pieces of 78g each. Round it up, flatten and wrapped the sesame seeds filling into it. Round it up afain before flattening one more time. Use a pizza cutter to draw up 4 lines as per picture below. Use the pizza cutter to cut but not all the way through.
Pinch the two ends together to create the petal as per picture. Pardon the non manicure fingers! Let it proof for 15 minutes before giving it a milk wash and sprinkled some sesame seeds onto the center portion.
Next bake it in a preheated oven of 190 degree for about 15 minutee. Let it cool and devour!
