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 .

Hamburger Rolls

Hamburger rolls are so simple and easy to make. From the money you buy 6 you can make 15 with out a problem. All you need is a bit of patience. I always do a larger batch and leave in freezer to use later.

Making bread at home is a good way of not having any preservatives and unnecessary amounts of sugar and oil. The other thing is tastes much better than a shop bought.

This recipe will do 12-15 buns. you can always multiply or divide this to get larger or smaller batches.

Homemade Bakers Rolls from Scratch

Bread rolls are so easy to make with different styles of dough. I made these beautiful bread rolls from a recipe one of my friends passed to me from her grand mothers. Its so nice and beautiful in texture as well as stays in fridge for longer than a normal bread roll.

As I always says make sure to knead well and let the bread dough rest well for a better results.

Step by Step Guide for the perfect Baklava Rolls

I used to do baklava always for functions as in a tray and cut in to diamond  shaped tiles. Recently a work colleague brought baklava rolls. She has done a big batch for Ramadan. So I asked so many questions from her about the rolling pin that they use to make these beautiful rolls.

One day I went to Bunnings and got this roller  and asked them to cut it for me. Using that I made these rolls for a friends retirement party.

For this recipe you will need 200 g pistachios with a cup of sugar to mix in.  You need 250  grams  butter too. Mix sugar and the crushed pistachios together.

The same time need another 1 cup sugar with 1 1/2 cup of water. Add the sugar in to a pot and add the water in to it and leave aside.

Melt the butter and get the rolling pin and a packet of filo pastry. Take one sheet out and cover the leftovers with a damp cloth.

Slightly butter the filo. Sprinkle the crushed pistachios on it.

Put the rolling pin on the corner and slightly roll it.  Make sure not to give too much pressure.

Lay another pastry and brush  butter only and roll with the rolled pastry with nuts.

After pressure from both ends and squeeze the sheets. Lay them on a baking tray.

Brush the rolls with butter And bake on 180 c about 20 minutes or until golden brown on top.  Meanwhile put the pot with sugar on the stove and  add about a table spoon full lime or lemon juice.

Take the baked rolls, cut while hot to the desired size  and pour the hot syrup onto the hot rolls and leave to absorb all the syrup. Leaving overnight is the best.

Chocolate Balls

This is a copy cat recipe of a small snack size bun I found in a cafe. the oozing chocolate made this bun so tasty and a good combination for  a hot cup of coffee.

The bread is so simple and easy to make as well as very soft in texture too. Use a good quality chocolate in the middle.

Yoghurt Dinner Rolls

When baking bread the whole house is full of smell like when you walk near a bakery. It refreshes everyones hunger. Kids are eagerly waiting to have a hot bread roll with butter. I cant stop eating the freshly baked hot bread.

Baking bread is very simple and easy. The only thing is getting it to the right consistency. Kneading the dough is the secret of making good bread.

When adding yoghurt and milk in bread it will make the dough softer. The size of the egg that you are using to make the bread makes a bit wet too. So adding extra flour until you reach the right consistency is not a problem at all. So feel free to add extra flour to make it happen.

Vegetarian Curry Buns / Tanzhong or water roux method

Curry buns are simple to make. The texture of these buns are very soft. The tangzhong makes the buns very soft. Even if you keep them several days in fridge it will not go hard.The belief of the tangzhong is to keep the roux in fridge more than 12 hours in fridge. I always use it even while it is warm. It works like a magic.

In here I use eggs for the brushing by a mistake. As I am always using the egg mix I automatically did it. If you are a vegetarian try using milk or cream. Vegans can adjust this by omitting butter and adding coconut oil. i will do fully vegan soon.

When you cook the vegetables make sure to cook it until no liquid. This way it keep the buns well seal and no liquid comes out. I will share a tip here. When you want to make the curries dry try adding a table spoon or two plain flour to the curry at last. cook a minute stirring. It will thicken the curry quickly.

When you make the curry you don’t need to stick on to the same vegetables. You can use what ever you have in fridge. My curry is a bit Sri Lankan ????????. The coconut milk gives a nice creaminess to the curry. That way when you have a bite of the bun you will feel the taste of a creamy coconut in the curry.
