Blueberry & Cream Cheese Bakery Buns

These bursting Blueberry buns are moist and scrumptious. The cream cheese gives a creamy flavour to the tart while blueberries gives full of goodness and colour. When you open them up the buns the purple colour juices gives a tempting and appealing look. You cant stop eating them at all.

Doing them the way I have done is super simple. You can use burger moulds or disposable foil cases or even muffin pans. If you are using muffin pans try cutting the dough in to smaller pieces. The other way is using a tart cases or one large one.

The other thing is you can leave them in fridge about three days. (I doubt it will stay that long) Can freeze them in individual bags for future use too.  If you want to serve these for a high tea or a brunch try cutting them in to smaller pieces .

Fish Rolls/ Chinese Rolls

Fish rolls or Chinese rolls are one of the finger food that available in Sri Lanka.  Its so simple to make . The advantage is you can make a larger batch and freeze them for future use. But… remember to thaw completely  before frying  them. If not that can split in oil. Instead of fish you can add any filling.

This recipe is given by one of my good friend who had a restaurant in Melbourne for long time several years before. She said to me “try this method and you will be amazed to get the results”. Actually it is true. The batter is so silky. Leaving the batter after adding butter in fridge for several hours or overnight it gives this miracle texture to the pancakes. Its really hard to find people who gives the correct recipes. She said ” I don’t want to keep it to my self” “I like what you are doing, Give them this recipe too” I am really proud to have a friend like that who has the same wish as me.

When you buy fish rolls you have no idea whats in it and how they made it. Try these simple method and you can get 25 rolls out from this. (It depends on the pan you are doing the pancakes). When we buy food we know that we are spending too much money on labour than the food it self. Your children will love to have something like this in their lunch boxes once in a while. I know most of the kids refuses vegetables. Grate everything and stir fry with the filling. because of the crunchy and tasty out side they will eat anything in it. I did that most of the time for my kids.

If you like this in the oven than deep frying add a bit more butter (Doubling the amount of butter in the batter)  in to it. The other way is crumbing the rolls with panko crumbs and spraying oil well before baking. Don’t expect the same results as frying anyway. But it is much healthier.

Pancakes with a Sweet Coconut filling/???? ????

Pancakes are easy to make and saves time. When you want a quick snack or to treat an unexpected guest Sri Lankans make these in 10 min to offer with a cup of Ceylon tea. The cooked fresh coconut in treacle gives this a juicy and pungent flavour unique to Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka has an abundant supply of coconut. I still can remember my childhood. We had coconut plants around my house and when we want fresh coconuts we plucked some with out a problem. We got treated with these beautiful pancakes more often and this is something I love to eat.

You can use brown sugar instead of the treacle.But treacle is the best. It gives the nice colour to the filling and the sweet pungent flavour. Cardamon gives the aroma and when all added thats the beautiful treat you can ever get to accompany a Sri Lankan grown cup of tea.
