Hazy Day

Good morning, rise and shine everyone! Though we can barely see the sunshine this morning, it doesn't mean we can stay in bed all day. 

It's been in the news. We had a bad case of haze in Bangi. So folks, it's better to stay inside. Due to the hot weather, best to drink a lot of water and please refrain from being out in direct sunlight if you have no business to do so. Another thing, you might want to stock up on premix Lai Chi Kang. This drink contains ingredients that help cooling off high body temperature. Or if you have no access to it, barley drink will do the trick. 

Now, you'll probably have eaten your breakfast. If it not being the case, you might want to try this out. It will brighten your day somehow... ^_^

Sugared Cheddar Buns
Makes 15 buns

1 cup warm water
2 1/4 tsp instant yeast
1 tsp sugar

3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup margarine/ softened butter

15 pieces of 1-inch cubed cheddar cheese (refrigerate until ready to use)
Sugar for sprinkling on top (about 1/2 tsp on each bun)

*Additional flour for kneading

  1. In a small bowl, mix the warm water + yeast + sugar. Let it be for about 5-10 minutes to bloom
  2. Mix flour + salt + sugar in a large mixing bowl. Add in margarine, using fingertips to mix them in  until resemble a coarse meal. Then pour in the liquid
  3. Use a spatula for easy mixing until the mixture becoming a dough. Lightly knead with hand, adding flour by 1 tablespoon if the dough becomes too sticky to work with
  4. Knead until the dough cleans the bowl (15 minutes or so), rub a little oil all over the dough and inside of bowl. Cover with a cling wrap, let rise for 1 hour until double in volume
  5. Once risen, punch out the air and knead the dough lightly. Grease a 9x13 inch pan. Divide the dough into 15 parts, rest 5 minutes. Then begin rounding up the dough into small balls, lining them up in the baking pan. Let rise again for 35 minutes until puffy. Preheat oven to 200 C (400 F) approximately 15 minutes prior to baking
  6. Push one cubed cheese in the middle of each puffy dough until it makes an indentation. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon sugar on top of cheese. Bake in preheated oven 200 C (400 F) for 5 minutes. Then reduce to 190 C (375 F) for another 10 minutes until golden brown. Transfer baked buns  immediately from pan onto cooling rack to avoid soggy bottoms
Enjoy with a cup of coffee! If you crave more bread like this, head over to Yeastspotting...
