Fruit Jam Puff

This coming weekends will be a very busy one for me....my daughter is going to have her graduation ceremony!!! I'm so excited and I just can't wait to see her wearing the robe..haha! Okay, I know I'm abit over excited for she's only 6...heehee! But seeing her wearing her robe makes me feel like she's a big girl now and I just can't wait to prepare her to the primary..;p
Alright, lets talk about today's post. "Puffs"! I like this version of puffs which filled with fruity jams instead of cream or custard. They had a very fuirty taste and a light texture.

The steps are easy to follow but alittle time consuming during the process.

Ingredients:
200g bread flour
50g superfine cake flour
30g butter
1/4tsp salt
130g water
130g pastry margarine
*1 egg yolk (beaten)

Method:
~ Mix all ingredients together except pastry margaring and egg yolk into a dough.
~ Press till form a smooth dough. Rest for 10-15 minutes.
~ Roll pastry margarine into square shape on a plastic sheet. Flatten dough and place the pastry margarine on top of the flatten dough.
~ Wrap up then roll out into a big rectagle sheet. Fold in 4 folds and rest for 10-15 minutes.
~ Repeat this folding process for 3 times.
~ Roll dough into a thin sheet, use a cutter to cut out base and top (as shown below)
~ Brush egg yolkon the base and stick the top together.
~ Place on the tray with parchment paper and bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown at 180'C.
~ Cooled and fill with jams.



I like the blueberry jam fillings the most but may daughter prefer eating in another way...with chocolate!! Oh, about the jams...I used those blueberry and strawberry fillings from bakery stores. I think you can eat them with any fillings you desire, they may taste great too.

See the puffs with the layered pastry? They were so crunchy and light. Yummy!
Below was what my daughter prefer..with melted chocolate...she took 6 in a go!!

Have a great weekend!!

  1. This looks like a flexible recipe which can fill savory filling too! First that come to mind is prawn cucumber or chicken mushrooms, yum! But the sweet fillings are a great desert too! Will try this out when there is party, great finger food idea! ;) very flaky looking, yum!
