Actually I've been invited by Elin from Elinluv's Corner to a tagging menu game to celebrate this Easter but I have not much recipes for this special celebration, so I'm afraid that I have to skip this invitation and hopefully I can join next year. So sorry Elin..;p
Today's post was all about the "purple sweet potatoes" I got last week. After having a good chat and lunch with my blogger friends at 1U last week, we went to the Cold Storage in the same mall, when we saw these beautiful sweet potatoes, I just can't help myself to grab some. End up I still have alot in my fridge now...haha! Anyway I manage to made 2 recipes out of them..:)
First, the Purple Sweet Potatoes Butter Buns!
The colour somehow faded alittle after baking, but the texture was super soft!
Here's the recipe...
260g Bread flour
5 g milk powder
70g castor sugar
40g purple sweet potatoes (cooked and mashed)
150g cold water
6g instant yeast
** Alitlle butter, cut into small cubes
** Alittle fine sugar
~ Combine everything together except butter and raisins into a soft dough, then add in butter to knead until a fine elastic dough at high speed (about 5 minutes with the mixer)
~ Add in raisins and mix well. Covered and let proof for 30 minutes.
~ Divide dough into small oval balls and cut slightly 1-2" in the middle of the buns with a sharp knife.
~ Spread some butter cubes and sugar at the cut areas, and let proof for another 10-15 minutes.
~ Brush the side top with some egg wash and bake at 180'C for 10-12 minutes.
Texture was really good the very day it was baked, somehow it turns alittle hard on the outside the next day. Anyway I have only 2 left overs, and my daughter brought one to school the other day and said it was still good...haha!
The 2nd recipe was the Ondeh Ondeh. It was one of my older post but only they were "purple". And because they were purple, my hubby and daughter looked like tasting out some new recipe from me...LOL!! And said those were so yummy and gave me all the thumbs up....haha!
