  2. Hi and welcome to episode #643 with @Whats4Chow
  3. Today we’re going to make Portuguese rolls, or Prego rolls.
  4. These rolls have a fine, soft texture with smooth matted finish,
  5. and the trademark slashed top. They are normally filled with
  6. spicy pork or chicken, but serve brilliantly as burger buns as
  7. well.

  11. new episode.
  12. To start, add 20g of caster sugar and 280ml of milk to 360ml of
  13. warm water. Pour in 20g of instant yeast and stir this all briefly
  14. until the sugar has dissolved and the yest is mixed into the
  15. solution. Cover this and put it aside for 10 minutes to prove.
  16. While the yeast proves, add 1 kg of strong white bread flour to
  17. your mixer bowl. Add a tablespoon of non-iodated salt and 40g
  18. of softened butter. After 10 minutes, pour in the yeast solution.
  19. Be sure to give it a final mix before doing so.
  20. Start your mixer on its slowest speed, run it for 2 minutes until
  21. all the ingredients are combined, then increase the speed by
  22. one setting for another 6 minutes. Do the window pane test. If
  23. the test fails, continue for a further 2 minutes on the slowest
  24. speed. Do test again, and continue in 2 minute sessions until
  25. you dough very smooth and passes the window pane test. The
  26. window pane test is done by stretching a small piece of dough.
  27. If it can stretch until it is almost transparent, then it passes the
  28. test.
  29. Cover the bowl with cling wrap and leave this in a warm place to
  30. rise for 60-90 minutes until it has doubled in size.
  31. Pour boiling water into a baking tray and place this in your oven
  32. on the lowest shelf. This will warm the oven and produce steam
  33. and humidity for the second proofing.
  34. Once the dough has doubled in size, punch it down briefly and
  35. turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and
  36. divide it into 100g portions. Shape the portions by folding the
  37. dough from the edge to the bottom of the portion. Place the
  38. smooth ball in the palm of your hand and continue smoothing
  39. the bun by cupping your other hand over the bun and using a
  40. circular motion.
  41. Place the smooth ball on the work surface and roll it out until
  42. slightly elongated. Traditionally, these are rolled slightly more
  43. elongated than mine, however I want to use these as burger
  44. buns, so I prefer them on the rounder side.
  45. Transfer the buns to a baking sheet lined with parchment and
  46. use a very sharp blade to slash the tops of the buns.
  47. Transfer the baking sheet to the oven to prove again for 60-90
  48. minutes until doubled in size.
  49. minutes before the proofing is complete, remove the baking
  50. sheet from the oven and cover with cling film. Preheat your
  51. oven to 190c, or just below 400f making sure to leave the tray
  52. of water on the lowest shelf of the oven.
  53. When the oven is ready, uncover the rolls and transfer them to
  54. the center of the oven and bake them for 15-20 minutes until
  55. lightly golden and they sound hollow when tapped.
  56. Remove the buns from the oven and transfer them to a rack to
  57. cool. Once cooled the buns are ready to serve, or you can bag
  58. them and freeze quite successfully for months, provided the bag
  59. is well sealed.

Perfect Burger Buns - How to Bake the Best Burger Buns Ever - Independence Day 2018 Special

Recipe type: Burgers & Barbecue

Serves: 24 x 100g
 
After a short holiday following episode 600, I'm back. Tangzhou milk buns have a supremely soft, light and feathery texture all their own, however they are actually too soft to be used as burger buns. I have adjusted the original tangzhou recipe, keeping the technique, to make a firmer bun with the same light and airy texture, that makes for the perfect burger bun. In addition, these buns have a much better shelf-life, and freeze exceptionally well too.
Ingredients
  • Group 1:!
  • 1.35kg All-purpose flour
  • 15ml Salt
  • 10g Active dry yeast
  • 30ml Sugar
  • Group 2:!
  • 375ml Water
  • 75g All-purpose flour
  • Group 3:!
  • 450ml Full cream milk
  • 3 Eggs, beaten
  • 90ml Sunflower oil
Instructions
  1. To start, place 1.35kg of all-purpose flour in your stand mixer bowl along with 15ml of salt, 10g of active dry yeast and 30ml of sugar.
  2. Give these a quick stir to combine.
  3. Add 75g of all-purpose flour to a medium size pot and pour in 375ml of water.
  4. Use a whisk to mix until smooth.
  5. Measure out 450ml of full cream milk, 90ml of sunflower oil and beat 3 eggs. Put these aside for later.
  6. Place the pot over medium low heat and gently heat the flour water mixture. Whisk the mixture continuously.
  7. As the mixture heats up it will start to thicken. Continue whisking to keep the mixture smooth.
  8. The mixture will soon thicken to a porridge consistency, and will become slightly translucent.
  9. Remove the pot from the heat and whisk in the milk.
  10. Pour in the eggs and whisk these in.
  11. And finally, whisk in the oil.
  12. Pour this mixture into the mixing bowl on your stand mixer.
  13. Start the mixer kneading on medium slow speed, and allow this to continue kneading for 15 minutes until the dough is nice and smooth.
  14. Remove the bowl from the machine, cover with clingwrap and allow the dough to rise in a warm place for 90 minutes until at least doubled in size.
  15. Turn the dough out onto you work surface. Do not dust the surface or dough with flour. It will not be necessary, and will actually harm the texture of the buns.
  16. Knead the dough briefly to knock any large air bubbles out.
  17. Using your scale, divide the dough into 100g portions for regular burger buns, 120g portions for large buns, and 150g potions for giant buns. I am making regular sized buns which are perfect for 100g or quarter pound patties.
  18. To form the buns, stretch the dough from the top of the portion of dough to the bottom, working around the edge of the dough.
  19. Circle the dough in your index finger and thumb and crimp the bottom of the bun together.
  20. Place the bun on the work surface, cup your hand over the bun and finish rounding it with a circular motion.
  21. Press the bun flat and transfer it to a baking sheet lined with baking parchment.
  22. Continue with the remaining buns, leaving about a half inch of space between each one.
  23. Cover the buns loosely with clingfilm and allow the buns to rise in a warm place for 45 minutes until they are touching as they are here.
  24. minutes into this rise, start preheating your oven to 200c or 400f.
  25. Brush the buns with beaten egg and sprinkle the tops liberally with hulled sesame seeds.
  26. Bake the buns in the center of your oven for 15 to 20 minutes until golden on top.
  27. Remove the buns from the oven and transfer them to cooling racks.
  28. If we cut one of these beauties open, we see the amazing light airy, feathery texture, with excellent oven spring and an improved firmness, making these buns the perfect burger buns.

Cuisine: German
Serves: 2
 
Today we're going to bake a unique rye bread that everyone will love. This bread has the amazing flavor of rye bread, but the light texture of a regular white farm loaf.
Ingredients
  • 625ml Warm water
  • 60g Black strap molasses
  • 30g Butter, melted
  • 30ml Brown sugar
  • 18g Soy lecithin (available at most health shops)
  • 20g Instant yeast
  • 600g Strong white bread flour
  • 300g Stoneground rye flour
  • 20ml Salt
  • 10ml Caraway or fennel seeds
Instructions
  1. To start, pour 625ml of warm water into your mixer bowl.
  2. Add 60g of black strap molasses and stir this in briefly.
  3. Pour in 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 30g of melted butter, 20g instant yeast and 18g of soy lecithin.
  4. The lecithin binds the oil in the melted butter to the water. This dramatically increases the shelf life of the bread. In addition, rye flour has a low gluten content and the lecithin replaces this shortage in order that rye loaf will rise as well as regular bread does.
  5. Use your stick blender to shear the lecithin into the liquids.
  6. Cover the bowl and give it 15 minutes for the yeast to activate.
  7. In the meantime, measure out 600g strong white bread flour, 300g stoneground rye flour, 4 teastoons salt and 2 teaspoons caraway or fennel seeds.
  8. Add these four ingredients to the yeast liquid.
  9. Place the bowl on your mixer with the dough hook attached and knead the dough on slow speed for 2 minutes. Increase the speed to medium slow for a further 8 minutes.
  10. You will have a beautifully smmoth dough that is only slightly sticky.
  11. Cover the bowl with cling-wrap and allow the dough to rise in a warm place for 60 minutes.
  12. While the dough rises, rub the insides of 2 large loaf pans with butter.
  13. Scatter flour over the inner surfaces of the pans and tip out any excess flour.
  14. As you can see this dough rises very well.
  15. Turn the dough out onto a lightly fliured work surface and knead it briefly to knock it down.
  16. Weigh the dough and divide it into 2 equal portions of around 850g.
  17. Working with one portion at a time, work the dough into a rectangle as with as the bread pan. Fold the top edge down two thirds of the way, then fold the botykm edge up over this.
  18. Place the rolled dough into the pan with seam side down. Flatten the roll to fill the bottm of the pan.
  19. Cover both pans and allow these yo rise for a further 30 minutes in a warm place.
  20. Once again, you can see clearly just how well this rises.
  21. Use a razor sharp knife to slash the tops of the loaves. Not only does this lokk cool, but it deflates the lids and prevents them from blowing while baking.
  22. Bake the loaves in a preheated oven at 220c or 430f for 25 to 30 minutes until the loaves sound hollow when tapped.
  23. Remove the loaves from the onen and turn them out onto a wire rack to cool.
  24. Allow the bread to cool for at least 30 minutes before cutting.

Bolillos are Mexico's version of the French baguette. With the trademark thin and crispy crust, these little rolls are every bit as good. Despite the long rising times, the recipe is really easy, and certainly worth the effort.
Ingredients
Ingredients for the starter:
  • ¾ Cup water
  • ½ Tsp Active dry yeast
  • 1 Cup all-purpose flour

  • 1.5 Tsp Active dry yeast
  • 2 Tsp Salt
  • 60ml Melted butter
  • 240ml Warm water
Instructions
  1. This recipe does require a starter, sometimes called a preferment or poolish. To make the starter, place a cup of all-purpose flour in your mixer bowl.
  2. Add a half teaspoon of active dry yeast followed by 180ml of water.
  3. Place the bowl on your mixer with the beater paddle fitted.
  4. Mix this on medium low speed until totally combined. This will take 30 to 60 seconds.

  15. Cover the dough balls with cling-wrap and allow these to rest for 15 minutes. This allows the gluten to relax in preparation for the next step.
  16. Working with one ball at a time, flatten the ball into an oval shape.
  17. Fold the top third of the dough downwards and press to seal.
  18. Fold the bottom edge of the dough up and over this. Press this to seal the edge.
  19. Hold your hands at angles to the edges and roll the dough to form the bolillo.
  20. Transfer this to a lightly floured baking sheet and continue forming the remaining rolls.
  21. Cover the rolls with cling-wrap and allow them to rise for a further 60 to 90 minutes in a warm place, until doubled in size.
  22. minutes before the second rise is completed, preheat your oven to 230c or 450f. Place a small roasting pan in the bottom of your oven at this time.
  23. When the oven is up to temperature, use a razor sharp thin blade to slash the rolls along the length.

Today we're going to make delicious zebra bread buns. Unlike other zebra bread recipes, the dark part of the bread in this recipe does not result from food coloring, but a combination of cocoa powder and black strap molasses.
Ingredients
Ingredients
For the White Dough
  • 475g Strong white bread flour
  • 30g Cold butter, grated

  • 6ml Instant yeast
  • 150ml Warm full cream milk
  • 150ml Warm water
Instructions
  1. You can make buns or loaves using this amazing recipe.
  2. To start, measure 300ml of warm water into a jug and add 20g of sugar.
  3. Stir this until the sugar has dissolved.
  4. Pour in 6ml or a slightly heaped teaspoon of instant yeast and stir this in.
  5. Cover the mixture and put this aside to prove.
  6. In another jug combine 150ml warm full cream milk and 150ml warm water.
  7. Pour in 50g of black strap molasses and stir this until totally combined.
  8. Pour in 6ml of instant yeast and stir this in.
  9. Cover this and put it aside to prove.
  10. Pour 475g of strong white bread flour into your mixer bowl.
  11. Add 5ml of salt and grate 30g of cold butter into the flour.
  12. Place the bowl on your mixer with the beater attached. Run the mixer briefly on low speed to cut the butter into the flour.
  13. Pour in the first yeast mixture.
  14. Close the machine and run it for 60 seconds to combine the liquid with the flour.
  15. Scrape down the beater paddle and swap it out for the dough hook.
  16. Start the mixer on low speed for 60 seconds, then increase the speed and allow the dough to knead for a further 7 minutes.
  17. Remove the white dough from the machine. It will be smooth, soft and elastic, but not at all sticky. Transfer this to a large bowl, cover the bowl and allow the dough to rise in a warm place for 60 minutes.
  18. For the dark dough, combine 475g of strong white bread flour with 60ml of cocoa powder and 5ml of salt.
  19. Grate 30g of butter into the bowl as well.
  20. Place the bowl on your mixer with the beater attached and mix this briefly to cut the butter into the flour.
  21. Add the dark yeast mixture and continue mixing until the liquid is incorporated into the flour.
  22. Remove the beater and replace it with the dough hook.
  23. Clove the machine and get it kneading on slow speed for 60 seconds. Increase the speed to medium slow and continue kneading for a further 7 minutes.
  24. Remove the dough from the machine, transfer it to a large bowl, cover the bowl and allow the dough to rise in a warm place for 60 minutes.
  25. After 60 minutes, punch the white dough down and turn it out onto a lightly floured work surface.
  26. Knead the dough briefly and roll it into a log. I am cutting this into 8 equal pies for extra large rolls. For burger buns, cut the log into 12, and for smaller buns, 16. Put these aside.
  27. Repeat this process with the dark dough.
  28. Take one piece of white dough and one piece dark dough and roll each one out to an oval 15cm or 6 inches log by 10cm or 4 inches wide.
  29. Place the one slab on top of the other and cut the stack into 4 pieces.
  30. Stack the four pieces on top of one another.
  31. Put the stack flat on the work surface and form it into a bun.
  32. Put this on a lined baking sheet and continue with the remaining buns.
  33. Cover the buns lightly with cling wrap and allow these to rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  34. After 30 minutes, combine a beaten egg with a tablespoon of water and brush this onto the buns.
  35. Bake the buns in a pre-heated oven at 200c or 400f for 20 to 25 minutes and the buns are well risen and golden.
  36. Remove the buns from the oven and transfer them to a cooling rack for at least 15 minutes before serving.

How to Make Wheat Flour Tortillas - How to Make Cheesy Quesadillas - Homemade Tortillas From Scratch
Author: 
Recipe type: Tortillas
Cuisine: Mexican
 
Some time ago we made corn tortillas. Today we're going to make soft and chewy wheat flour tortillas which are the more popular version of tortillas in Northern Mexico. After making the tortillas, we're also going to make a couple of cheesy melted quesadillas.
Ingredients
For the tortillas
  • 300g All-purpose flour
  • 5ml Baking powder
  • 2.5ml Salt
  • 60g Vegetable shortening
  • 125ml Warm water
For the quesadillas
  • 6 Tortillas
  • 200g Mature cheddar / Jack cheese grated
  • ½ Red pepper
  • 1 Large pickles jalapeno pepper
Instructions
  1. To start, you will need 300g of all-purpose flour, 5ml or a teaspoon of baking powder, 2.5ml or half teaspoon of salt, 60g of vegetable fat or shortening and 125ml or a half cup of warm water.
  2. Place the flour, salt and baking powder in your food processor. Pulse this briefly to combine.
  3. Add the shortening to the bowl and machine this for about 10 seconds to cut this into the flour.
  4. Pour in the water and run the machine until the dough comes together and runs around the edge of the bowl.
  5. Tilting the machine from side while it mixes the dough helps to get a good even consistency in the dough.
  6. Turn the dough out onto your work surface and press it into a block. Wrap the dough in cling-wrap and allow it to rest on the counter for 30 minutes.
  7. After resting, divide the dough into 8 equal pieces and roll each piece into a ball.
  8. Place one of the balls on a lightly floured work surface and flatten it out into a disc of about 7 inches or 18cm.
  9. Use your rolling pin to roll these out until about 9 to 10 inches in diameter or 22 to 25cm. At this stage they will be about 1mm in thickness.
  10. Repeat this until all of the tortillas are formed.
  11. Heat a dry pan over high heat. When the pan is smoking hot drop a few of the tortillas into the pan.
  12. Toast them for 30 to 40 seconds, then flip them over and repeat.
  13. Remove these from the pan and continue with the remaining tortillas.
  14. You can keep your tortillas fresh for a few days in an airtight container or zip lock bag, or freeze them indefinitely.
  15. To make your quesadillas, dice a half a red pepper, and finely chop one large pickled jalapeño pepper.
  16. Mix these together in a bowl.
  17. Grate 200g of mature cheddar or Monterey Jack and place this in a bowl. Add the mixed peppers and mix these into the cheese.
  18. To make up the quesadillas, spread a generous dose of the filling over one side of a tortilla.
  19. Fold the open side over the filling and press it down to secure.
  20. Heat a pan over medium high heat and drop the quesadillas into the pan.
  21. Toast the quesadillas until the cheese is well melted, turning every 90 seconds.
  22. Remove the quesadillas from the pan, cut them through the center and serve immediately accompanied with sour cream for dipping.

Recipe type: Cocktail Snacks / Finger Foods
 
Today we're going to make 3 different fancy dipping crackers that will be real hit at any cocktail party or big game. They are quick and easy to make, they look amazing and will certainly make an impression on everybody.
Ingredients
  • 370g All-purpose flour (or cake flour)
  • 2.5ml Salt
  • 10ml Baking powder
  • 80ml Oil
  • 125ml Water
Instructions
  1. To start, place 370g of all-purpose flour or cake flour in your food processor.
  2. Add 2.5ml or a half teaspoon of salt and 10ml or 2 teaspoons of baking powder.
  3. Pour in 80ml of oil and mix this all on high speed for 15 to 20 seconds. Tilting the machine back and forth while mixing helps to get a good even mix.
  4. Pour in 125ml of water and machine this on high speed until it starts to come together, about 30 seconds.
  5. You can test the dough by pressing it between your fingers. If it holds together it is ready.
  6. Turn the crumbly mass out onto your work surface and compress it into a block. Wrap the dough in cling-wrap and allow this to rest for 30 minutes at room temperature.
  7. After resting, unwrap the dough and cut it into 4 pieces. Flatten each piece into a rectangle.
  8. Working with 1 piece at a time, run these through your pasta roller starting on setting 1 and working to setting 4.
  9. As each sheet is rolled, dust them with flour, trim of the ends to square them up and put these aside until all 4 sheets are rolled.
  10. Attach the tagliatelle cutter to your pasta machine and run 2 of the sheets through the cutter.
  11. Leave the remaining sheets aside.
  12. Fir the twisted dipping straws, simply twist a strand of the cut pasta then transfer it to baking sheet lined with parchment.
  13. Repeat this until half of the cut pasta is used.
  14. To make the dipping spirals, cut rectangles of foil to 12cm by 20cm or 5 inches by 8 inches.
  15. Roll a piece of foil up on a long round object, like a spoon handle, or one of these bag closers.
  16. Twirl a strand of the cut dough at an angle around the foil.
  17. Remove the foil from the handle and transfer this with the pasta twirl to the baking sheet.
  18. Continue until all of the spirals are complete.
  19. For the dipping spoons, first dock the dough sheet by pricking holes in the dough. Cut the dough sheets into triangular shapes across the width of the sheet.
  20. Arrange the triangles on a baguette pan with the handles of the spoons, or the thin end draped ove the high ridge of the pan.
  21. Bake the crackers in a pre-heated oven at 250c or 480f for 5 to 7 minutes until crispy and lightly golden.
  22. And there we have it.... 3 different styles of dipping crackers to make your partly platters shine.
