BuNNy(shape) SteAmed BuN

(got the recipe from here )

400 gr all purpose flour

7 gr dry yeast

2 tablespoon sugar

1/2 tablespoon salt

220 ml warm water

2 tablespoon oil

xtra flour for rolling out

In a large bowl mix the dry ingredients together well.

Add the warm water a little at a time, mixing all the time, until it forms a shaggy ball.

Add the oil and knead in the bowl until the dough cleans the sides.

Place on a board (lightly floured if necessary) and knead until smooth.

Form into a ball, place back in the bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Leave until risen to about 2 1/2 times its original size, about 1 hour.

——–

Punch down the risen dough, roll into a snake and cut into 12 equal pieces.

Make each piece into a small, smooth ball. Cover with a dampened kitchen towel and let rest for about 15 minutes.

Cut the parchment paper into 12 10cm / 4 inches or so sized squares.

Make ready the steaming equipment.

steam the buns for about 15 minutes..

on how to make the bunny shape :

after u fill the buns, shape into oval and cut the surface with scissors to make the ears..

don’t forget to make the beady eyes, too..

happy munching!!!

 

ps : the dough turnud out to be a bit dry, unlike steamed buns usually. so maybe if i’m gonna make it again next time, i’m gonna use the other steamed bun recipe..

hershey’s chocolate cake

suddenly craving for chocolate cake as i see picture of dark chocolate cake in my monitor..
it’s from a famous yummy chocolate brand :Hershey.. looked convincing, too.. so i thought “why don’t i give it a go”…
it’s purely for learning purpose.. i swear..

the recipe looks kinda similar to “one bowl chocolate cake” from Madame Martha Stewart.. and as far i remember.. it wasn’t really chocolateyyy..and i can’t find any hershey cocoa powder around here.
butttt.. i decided to try it anyway..

i didn’t got the chance to tried to chocolate frosting, (altho it looked very yummy and i’m very looking forward to taste it) because my 4 yo daughter wanted to eat the cake rite away.

oh well. next time, then..

Hershey’s Deep Dark Chocolate Cake

Ingredients :

2 cups granulated sugar

1 & 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa (i don’t have, so i used Bensdorf Kakao)
1 & 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 & 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup boiling water

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour two 9-inch cake rounds or one 13×9×2-inch baking pan.

In a large mixing bowl, stir together the first six ingredients (sugar through salt); add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla; beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.

Stir in boiling water (batter will be thin)

pour into prepared pan(s) and bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes our clean.

notes :

If baking cake rounds, allow rounds to cool slightly before turning out onto wire racks to cool completely. If using rectangular baking pan, allow cake to cool completely before icing.

———————————————————————————————————————————————————————

One Bowl Chocolate Frosting

6 tablespoons butter, softened to room temperature
2 & 2/3 cups confectioner’s (powdered) sugar
1/2 cup cocoa  Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

In a medium-sized bowl, mix and beat all ingredients using an electric mixer. If icing seems too thick, add a touch more heavy cream until desired consistency is reached, taking care not to over-thin the icing. I have found these amounts enough to frost the top and center layer of two, stacked, 9-inch cake rounds (but not the sides) or the top of a 13×9×2-inch rectangular cake. If you are looking to frost the sides of the stacked cake rounds as well, consider doubling these amounts.

 

review after tasting it :

it’s chocolatey. moist. and (ofcourse) different texture than sponge cake. it has heavy texture.

wud really love to try it with the frosting…

 

munching happily!!
