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.
200g bread flour
50g superfine cake flour
130g pastry margarine
*1 egg yolk (beaten)
~ 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.
Below was what my daughter prefer..with melted chocolate...she took 6 in a go!!
