Today we're going to make a hybrid hotdog.... or the simplest sausage roll ever. A hotdog sausage wrapped in puff pastry with tomato sauce and mustard is amazing, however there is a trick to making this work, otherwise you will end up with a gooey mess.... and here it is...
Ingredients
For 6 Hotdogs
  • 6 Vienna sausages
  • 2 x 400g Rolls puff pastry
  • Tomato sauce (ketchup)
  • Mustard
  • 1 Egg, beaten
Instructions
  1. Slice the vienna sausage at an angle all the way down the length of the sausage.
  2. Flip the sausage over and repeat this.
  3. When the sausage bakes in the pastry with the sauces, the sauce pulls in to the sausage instead of making the pastry wet and doughy.
  4. Continue with this until all of the viennas are cut.
  5. Unroll the puff pastry and place a vienna at the end of the roll.
  6. Give the vienna a dose of tomato sauce and mustard.
  7. Use the plastic separator yo roll up the puff pastry to enclose the vienna.
  8. Press down the edges of the pastry, and trim off the sausage roll.
  9. Add another sausage to the pastry and continue the process until all of the sausage rolls are formed.
  10. From a standard 400g pack of puff pastry, you should get 3 rolls. Simply multiply out the recipe to get the quantity you require.
  11. Line a baking sheet with parchment and transfer the sausage rolls to the sheet.
  12. Brush the hybrid hotdogs with beaten and bake them in a preheated oven at 200c or 400f until crispy and golden and nicely puffed up.
  13. Serve the baked hotdogs immediately with the accompaniments of you choice.

Creamy Refrigerator Cheesecake Recipe - How to Make Amazing Cheesecake. Double Crust Cheesecake.
Author: 
Recipe type: Dessert
 
Today we're doing something a little different. Cheesecake is an all-time favorite, but it's even better when it's quick and easy, light and creamy, and tastes like heaven.
Ingredients
For the Crust
  • 200g Graham crackers or tennis biscuits
  • 120g Butter, melted
  • 25g Sugar
For the Filling
  • 200g Butter at room temperature
  • 200g Sugar
  • 1Egg
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • 250g Cream cheese (soft)
  • 200g Sour cream
Instructions
  1. To start, break the crackers or t-biscuits into bits and place them in your food processor.
  2. Pulse the machine 3 or 4 times until you have an even mass of crumbs.
  3. Pour in the sugar and melted butter.
  4. Machine this for about 30 seconds rocking the machine back and forth. This helps to get a good even blend.
  5. You will end up with a crumbly mass of pastry.
  6. Cut a circle of baking parchment to fit the bottom of a 10 inch or 25cm springform pan. Lock the bottom of the pan into place and insert the parchment.
  7. Smear a thin layer of butter around the edge of the pan. Cut a long strip of parchment just slightly wider than the height of the pan. Place the strip around the inside pf the pan. The butter will keep this in place. Depending on the size of your roll of parchment, you may have to cut 2 strips to cover the circumference.
  8. Pour two thirds of the crumbed mixture into the pan and spread this evenly across the base. Smooth this off lightly with the back of your spoon. Try not to compress the base, it should be light and crumbly.
  9. Transfer the pan yo your freezer for 30 minutes to set while you continue with the filling.
  10. In a bowl or large jug, combine the sour cream and the cream cheese. Mix it thoroughly making sure you have a soft homogenous mixture.
  11. Add the softened butter to your stand mixer along with the sugar and the egg and additional egg yolk.
  12. Attach the beater paddle and beat the mixture for 10 minutes until it is light and fluffy.
  13. Remove the bowl from your mixer and pour in the cream cheese mixture.
  14. Fold the cream cheese mixture into the butter and egg. This should be done gently so as not to knock the air out of the creamy whipped butter, however you do need to make sure it is quite well combined.
  15. Remove the springform pan from the freezer and pour the filling into the center of the pan.
  16. Spread it out evenly from the center outwards.
  17. Pour the remaining crumbs over the top of the filling and spread this evenly across the filling.
  18. Use the back of a spoon to smooth this off, taking care not to compress the crumb to much.
  19. Cover the cheesecake and transfer it to your refrigerator for 24 hours to set before cutting and serving.

Recipe type: Dessert / Snacks / Confections
Cuisine: South African
Serves: 32
 
Koeksisters are a traditional sweet pastry in South Africa. These little twisted pastries are nice and crispy on the outside and soft and juicy on the inside. Saturated with a spiced syrup mixture, these little wonders will have you coming back time and time again.
Ingredients
For the Syup
  • 500ml Water
  • 1Kg White sugar
  • 2.5ml Cream of Zest and juice of 1 Lemon
  • 8cm Cinnamon stick
  • 8-10 Slices fresh ginger
  • 5ml Glycerin
For the Pastry
  • 4 Cups all purpose flour
  • 125g Shortening (baking lard)
  • ⅛ tsp Salt
  • 2 Eggs
  • 7.5ml Baking powder
  • 180ml Full cream milk (split 60ml / 60ml / 60ml)
  • Oil for frying
Instructions
  1. To make the syrup, place the sugar, water, cream of tartar, sliced fresh ginger and cinnamon sticks in medium size pot.
  2. Place the pot over medium heat and bring this to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer the mixture for 6 minutes.
  3. Add the lemon rind and juice and the glycerin. Stir this in and remove the pot from the heat.
  4. Once the syrup has cooled, cover the pot and refrigerate overnight.
  5. The following day, place the flour, shortening, baking powder and salt into your food processor and pulse this briefly 2 or three times to cut the shortening into the flour.
  6. Remove the lid, crack the eggs into the bowl and add the first 60ml milk.
  7. Switch the machine on high speed and allow this to mix for 20 seconds while tilting the machine from side to side.
  8. Add the second batch of milk and repeat the mixing process.
  9. Add the third batch of milk and run the machine for a further 30 seconds, tilting it back and forth.
  10. After the mixing, you will have a soft crumbly mass of pastry that will hold together when compressed.
  11. Sprinkle a little flour on your work surface and turn the pastry out.
  12. Work the pastry into a flat disc shape and wrap it in cling wrap.
  13. Allow this to stand for 60 minutes at room temperature.
  14. After the resting time, cut the pastry into 16 equal portions.
  15. Working with one portion at a time, work the pastry into a sausage shape about 4 inches in length.
  16. Place the pastry on a piece of plastic film, fold the film over to enclose the pastry, than roll it out to about 6mm or a quarter inch in thickness.
  17. Unfold the plastic and cut the pastry in half across the width.
  18. Cut each half into three along the length, leaving the narrower end intact.
  19. Plait each pieces using a simple 3 strand plait, put these aside and continue with the remaining pastries.
  20. Half fill a wok or large pan with oil and heat this to 180c or 350f.
  21. Carefully drop the pastries into oil in batches and fry them until well puffed and golden.
  22. Use your tongs to lift these one by one from the oil and dunk each one immediately into the ice cold syrup to get a good coating.
  23. Put the coated koeksisters aside and continue with the remaining batches.
  24. And there it is... a wonderful crispy, golden batch of South Africa's favorite pastries.

  3. Place the pot over medium high heat and stir the mixture until the sugar has dissolved and everything is well combined.
  4. Bring the mixture up to 300f or 154c. To judge this you will need to use a candy thermometer or an infrared thermometer.
  5. While the mixture heats up, line an 8 x 8 inch baking pan with baking parchment.
  6. As the mixture comes to the correct temperature, remove the pot from the heat and carefully lower it into the pan of water.
  7. Add the bicarbonate of soda and whisk this into the mixture.
  8. The mixture will froth up like a volcano.... this is why you need a deep pot.
  9. The cooling bath cools the mixture just enough to ensure a nice fine texture of bubble in the honeycomb.
  10. Remove the pot from the cooling bath and pour the honeycomb into the lined baking pan. Quickly level off the surface and put this aside to set.
  11. Once the mixture has set solid, turn it out from the pan.
  12. Use your meat mallet and a butter knife as a chisel to fracture the honeycomb into bite sized pieces.
  13. And there it is.... a beautifully finely texture honeycomb to add a little sweetness to the beginning of your new year.

How to Make Mossbolletjies - South Africa's Traditional Brioche - Aniseed Flavored Tear & Share Bread
Author: 
Recipe type: Bread
Serves: 12-18
 
Mossbolletjies are a traditional South African bread. With sweetness and feathery texture of brioche, the flavor and aroma is enhanced with aniseed, and makes for the perfect tear and share bread.
Ingredients
  • 1kg Cake flour
  • 10ml Salt
  • 100g Sugar
  • 10g Instant yeast
  • 30g Whole aniseed (or fennel seed)
  • 100g Butter
  • 250ml White grape juice
  • 125ml Warm milk
  • 250ml Warm water
  • 30ml Sugar mixed with 30ml lukewarm water to brush after baking (optional)
Instructions
  1. Pour the cake flour into your stand mixer bowl, along with the salt, sugar, instant yeast and whole aniseed. If you can't find aniseed, substitute this with whole fennel seed.
  2. Mix this together and put it aside.
  3. Pour the grape juice into a small saucepan and add the butter. Heat this gently over medium low heat just until the butter has dissolved. Remove this from the heat.
  4. Finally measure out the warm milk and warm water.
  5. Place your mixer bowl on your mixer. Pour in the butter mixture, the water, and the milk.
  6. Attach the dough hook to the mixer and knead the dough for 2 minutes on the slowest speed, followed by 6 minutes on medium slow.
  7. Remove the bowl from the machine, cover it with cling-wrap and put this in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes or doubled in size.
  8. While the dough rises, line a large baking pan with parchment.
  9. Turn the dough out onto a floured work surface. The dough will be slightly sticky so you will need to flour the top of the dough as well.
  10. Knead the dough for about 3 minutes to knock it down. Once the dough is smooth, grab handfuls of the dough and squeeze them off from the main mass and arrange these tightly in the baking pan.
  11. You can make the balls as big or small as you like. I wand to present these as tear and share dinner rolls, so I have made mine a little bigger than normal.
  12. Cover the pan with cling-wrap and allow to rise again for 40 to 45 minutes in a warm place.
  13. Bake the rolls in a preheated oven at 180c or 350f for 25 to 30 minutes until deep golden in color.
  14. Remove from the oven and turn the buns out onto a rack to cool. Allow them to cool for at least 15 minutes before serving.
  15. These little wonders are so easy to make, and I guarantee they will steal the show.

Baking Bread using Citric Acid and Soy Lecithin - using Dough Enhancers in Bread Baking
Author: 
Recipe type: Bread
 
A few days back I featured some amazing giant burger buns using citric acid and soy lecithin as dough improvers. I was asked quite a few questions regarding this, so hopefully this video will cover all the answers.
Ingredients
Ingredients per Large Loaf
  • 625g Strong white bread flour
  • 45ml Milk powder
  • 20ml Caster sugar
  • 7.5ml Salt
  • 15ml Fast acting dried yeast
  • 45ml Oil
  • 400ml Water
If You Are Using Soy Lecithin and Citric Acid
  • 12g Soy lecithin
  • 1.5ml Citric acid
Instructions
  1. I am going to bake 2 very simple white loaves using identical ingredients and baking times. The one loaf will have the citric acid and lecithin added, and this will demonstrate the difference.
  2. I have added the flour, yeast, caster sugar, milk powder and salt to both mixing bowls. A brief stir combines these.
  3. For the one loaf, I have split the water in half, and measured the oil.
  4. For the standard loaf, the water is in a single jug, accompanied by the oil.
  5. For the first loaf, add the citric acid to one half of the water, and the lecithin to the other. Use your stick blender to sheer these in the water.
  6. Place a mixing bowl on your stand mixer with dough hook attached and add all of the ingredients for standard loaf.
  7. Close the mixer and allow this knead for 8 minutes. Remove the dough fro the bowl and put this aside covered with a damp towel.
  8. Return the bowl to the machine and add all of the ingredients for the second loaf, including the citric acid solution and the soy lecithin.
  9. Close the mixer and allow this to mix for 8 minutes.
  10. Remove this from the mixer.
  11. This is the only difference in process, where the plain dough has now had 8 minutes of extra rising time.
  12. Lightly flour your work surface and shape the 2 loaves, then place them in bread pans.
  13. To identify the enhanced loaf, I am going make a few slashes along the top of the loaf.
  14. Place the loaves in your oven at 40c or 104f for 45 minutes to prove.
  15. Remove from the oven and brush the tops of the loaves with beaten egg. You will notice how much further the enhanced dough has risen.
  16. Return these to the oven and adjust the temperature to 200c or 400f until well browned on top and they sound hollow when tapped.
  17. In the enhanced dough, the citric acid tenderizes the gluten while the soy lecithin gives this softer gluten more body and structure. This results in a much lighter, softer and airier texture of crumb.
  18. This can plainly seen when the enhanced loaf on the left, is compared to the loaf on the right.
  19. I hope this clears up any questions you may have had. I have included this recipe on the website for anyone wanting a simple white loaf.

Just the other day we made the original recipe margarine. In my book, butter will always be king. However, butter does have some drawbacks. In winter, even when left on the counter, it is un-spreadable, and in summer it has to be in the refrigerator, leading to the same predicament.
Ingredients
  • 125g Softened butter (Not melted)
  • 80ml Oil (sunflower, canola or olive oil)
Instructions
  1. Weigh out 125g of softened, but not melted butter, and measure out 80ml of good quality cooking oil. You can use sunflower, olive or canola, however, not coconut oil.
  2. Pour the oil into the butter and start mixing. If you make much larger quantities than this, it is much easier to mix this in your food processor.
  3. At first the mixture will turn lumpy, then as you continue the lumps will gradually decrease in size until you have a perfectly smooth blend of butter and oil.
  4. Use a silicon spatula to transfer the butter spread to a bowl or tub and refrigerate until required.
  5. And here it is after a few hours in the refrigerator. The spread is firm, but can be quite easily spread.
  6. If you want your butter spread even softer, simply add a little more oil while mixing.

Some time back I published a recipe for the best burger buns ever. You can check it out by clicking the onscreen link. Today we're going scientific and making the best best burger buns.
Ingredients
  • 950g Strong white bread flour
  • 60g Butter, grated
  • 15ml Sugar
  • 10ml Salt
  • 10g Instant yeast
  • 30ml Milk powder
  • 600ml Warm water
  • 20g Soy lecithin
  • 2.5ml Citric acid
  • 1 Egg, beaten
Instructions
  1. Place the flour and grated butter in your stand mixer bowl.
  2. Measure out the sugar, salt, instant yeast and milk powder.
  3. Measure out the warm water in two equal portions.
  4. Add the citric acid to one portion.
  5. Add the soy lecithin to the other portion.
  6. Use your stick blender to sheer the additives into the liquid.
  7. Place the mixer bowl on your mixer with the beater attached.
  8. Start the mixer and let it run for 2 minutes until the grated butter has been rubbed into the flour.
  9. Open the mixer and swap out out the mixer paddle for the dough hook.
  10. Pour in all of the other ingredients. (except the egg)
  11. Start the mixer and knead the dough for 8 minutes on medium low speed.
  12. Remove the bowl from the machine and cover with cling-wrap. Place the bowl in a warm place and allow the dough to rise for 60 minutes.
  13. During this time it will more than double in size.
  14. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface, flour the top of the dough and briefly knead it until it is knocked down.
  15. Weigh the dough and divide it into 12 equal portions.
  16. Working with one portion at a time, stretch the edges of the dough downward and fold it underneath the ball.
  17. Place the ball of dough on the work surface and use your fingers to complete the form by digging underneath the bundle and rotating the dough simultaneously.
  18. Transfer all of the formed buns to a baking sheet, leaving at least an inch and a half of space between the buns.
  19. Half fill a baking pan with boiling kettle water and place this on the bottom shelf of your oven.
  20. Place the buns in the center of your oven and set the temperature to 40c.
  21. Let the buns prove at this temperature for 60 minutes until more than doubled in size.
  22. After this time remove the buns from the oven and brush them with the egg. Brush carefully so as not to deflate the buns.
  23. Return the buns to the oven and reset the temperature to 200c or 390f until the buns are lightly golden on top.
  24. If the buns sound hollow when tapped they are ready to remove from the oven.
  25. Transfer the buns to a rack to cool.
  26. And there we have it, incredibly soft, springy and tasty burger buns ready for eating.
