Freshly and Lovingly Baked on : 2nd Nov 2014
Its an “anyhow” bake today with no concept nor deep thoughts being put into it. The little mind is preoccupied with many things at this moment. For one, I am thinking about USDJPY. And, I am also thinking about http://envysg.com. And I am thinking about ….. Blah blah blah. Coming back to the bake, I did not like it enough as I was disappointed that it did not turn out to be as cute as I like it to be. The dough puffed out in the oven. I should have anticipated and “stick” each dough well.
I hope you can see that the piggies are “eating”. Greedy as always! While it is their turn to “feast”, it will be my turn to feast on them tomorrow.(“evil” grin).
205g Bread Flour
25g Granulated Sugar
20g Unsalted Butter
2g Instant Yeast
Pink Food Colourings
Mix flour, yeast, salt and sugar in a mixing bowl. Pour milk and egg into the powder mixture. Use a spoon to combine before using a dough hook and mix it well on medium speed. Once done, add in the butter and let the mixer do its magic by kneading for about 20 minutes. This resulting dough will be smooth and non sticky.
After which, take out 285g of the dough and let it proof. Add pink colouring to the remaining dough and ensure it is well mixed. Let it proof along with the main dough as well.
Once the dough doubled in size, divide up the dough into 60g each for the head and 35g for the body. The The arms and hand are made of of 2g each. The rest can be as according to how big and small you like it to be.
Once you have done up the piggies,let it proof for 30 minutes while you preheat the oven at 170 degree. Then bake it for 13 mins. I tent it after 6 minutes.
When I first place it in the oven:
Why aren’t you as cute as I hope you to be? Why?
