Another tea-time.. ... homemade brewed matcha latte, Black Sesame Mantou and Black Sesame Bun with Red Bean paste filling
After that failed attempt, I am not giving up yet.
As there is still another half portion of the pre-fermented dough in the fridge, I decided to make some buns this time. Took my Red Bean Paste from the freezer which I had made earlier from the recipe from JustOneCookbook.com.
I used the same method of making the dough only this time using the machine instead of manually and after the 1st proof, was ready to shape them. I divided the dough into 65 gm each and filled them with a rounded tablespoon of the filling.
waiting for the 2nd proof
Ready for the oven, egg wash and sprinkle some black sesame seed on top.
soft golden buns
After the 1st proof, divided pau dough into 50 gm. Roll out into oval shape and brushed with some corn oil and then smeared on some black sesame paste (I mixed black sesame powder with icing sugar). Using a sharp knife cut strips lengthwise but without cutting through the ends.
Lift the dough up and lightly shake off extra black sesame powder.
Holding both ends start to twist it into a roll and then into a bun, tucking the ends under.
Resting the 2nd time. Meanwhile prepare your steamer of boiling water.
Steam for 15-18 minutes and its done!
Contentment at last. The girls were home and we had another tea-time together.
