3g cream stabiliser (particularly if your cream is less than 35% fat)
10 to 15g white sugar
1. In a heat-safe cup, add butterfly pea tea and pour the boiling water. Let it sit for a few minutes and set aside.
2. In a cooking bowl, add white egg, and sugar. Mix gently (using a cooking spoon) to prevent bubbles from appearing.
3. Add milk gradually and mix. Then add sweetened condensed milk, heavy cream, and mix.
4. Strain and add the tea base, using a cooking sieve. Squeeze out as much as possible : the more you squeeze, the more intensely blue the result :) Mix gently.
5. Strain the mixture with a sieve twice. Transfer into heat-safe cups. Cover with aluminium foil.
6. Bring water to a boil and set the steam tray over, using the lowest heat. Place the puddings.
(NOTE : use a medium burner not the high output one, as indicated by the red arrows in the gas stove picture) Cover and steam for 45 to 60 min. It should be wobbly but the surface should hold firm and still.
7. Cover with lids and chill in the fridge until it has set and cooled.
For the topping :
8. In a small cup, add sugar and cream stabilizer. Mix. In a cooking pot, add the heavy cream and sugar mix, and mix with a electric hand mixer until getting the texture you like.
1. In a frying-pan, add the butter and cook over medium heat. Add the apples, cook for a few minutes then add sugar. Cook until the apple is lightly wilted. Transfer to a plate to let it cool down. Once it has cooled, sprinkle cinnamon powder (optional) and mix. Set aside.
2. In a heat-safe bowl, add butter and microwave it for about 1 minute at 600w. In the melted butter add sugar and maple syrup. Mix until well combined. Set it aside.
3.Prepare the mold
Place parchment paper on the mold and set it aside.
4. Put one sheet of Filo on your work surface and brush it with the butter mix from #2. Then place it in the mold. Repeat with 2 more sheets.
5. After 3 sheets are in, add half of the apple filling. Brush a 4th sheet and place in on top, over the apple filling. Then add the remaining apple filling.
6. Brush a 5th sheet and place it on top. Fold the edges over the center. Fill the gap in the center with more brushed sheets.
7. Sprinkle the remaining butter mix and some sugar if you like.
8. Bake 15 to 20 minutes at 190℃. Transfer to a wire rack.
1. Wash the rice well and drain (do it 5 times). Transfer the rice in the bowl and add enough water to soak. Soak for about 30 minutes.
2. In the meantime, make the vinegar seasoning. Add the vinegar, sugar and salt in a small cooking pot. And cook over medium heat until almost boiling. Melt completely the sugar and the salt. Set aside.
3. Drain the rice and transfer into a cooking pot. Add water (640ml). Cover and cook over medium-high heat, bring it to a boil. Once it boils, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.
4. Remove from the heat (do NOT open the lid yet!) and let the rice steam for another 10 minutes with the lid on.
5. Moisten a "Sushi-Oke" (or a large glass bowl), and transfer the rice into it. Pour the vinegar seasoning in one go. Slice the rice, let it cool down, using a hand fan occasionally.
6. Once it has cooled to room temperature, cover with saran wrap until you are ready to serve!
1. Add milk, egg, bread flour, (gluten flour), sugar, salt, and milk powder in the pan of your bread machine. Select dough cycle and press start as per manufacturer's instructions.
2. After 5 min, add butter and add yeast in the yeast compartment.
3. When the dough cycle is complete, remove the dough from the machine and place it on a floured surface.
4. Punch the dough down while sprinkling pearl sugar and knead together gently. Then divide it in 8 to 10 pieces and lightly shape the dough into balls. Cover them with a dry cloth. Let rest for about 15min bench time.
5. Re-shape each piece into a round ball. Arrange them on a lined baking tray or in a cupcake or muffin mold (as you prefer). Cover with a damp cloth and let rise for 40~60min in a warm place or until the dough has doubled in volume.
6. Bake in a preheated 180℃ oven for 10 to 12 min. Remove from the oven and let it cool down on a wire rack.
1. Add flour, salt, butter, sugar in the pan of your bread machine. In a heat-safe bowl add the milk and microwave for 15 to 20 sec at 600w to reach about 40℃, then add the melon liqueur (or melon syrup), mix. Pour in the pan. Add yeast in your machine's yeast compartment. Select dough cycle and press start as per manufacturer's instructions.
2.Meanwhile make the cookie dough In a bowl, add unsalted butter and mix with a silicone spatula until it becomes smooth (if the butter is hard or just out from the fridge, then microwave it for 10~15 sec at 600w).
3. Add sugar and mix well until they blend well together.
4. Add Melon liqueur or syrup and mix well.
5. Add almond flour and mix. Finally sift the flour (45g) into the mixture, using a cooking sieve. Mix well until all the flour is thoroughly mixed. Be careful not to overmix the dough. Divide into 6 pieces. Cover with saran wrap and let sit in the fridge.
6. When the dough cycle is complete, remove from the machine and place on a floured surface. At the same time, take the cookie dough out of the fridge and to room temperature.
7. Punch the dough down and divide it in equal 6 pieces. Shape each piece into a round ball and cover it with a cloth. Let it rest for 15min.
8. Let's put it together... Re-shape each bread dough piece into a round ball. Place one piece of cookie dough on a saran wrap and cover with another wrap to press it with your hand. The cookie dough should end up a bit bigger than the bread balls.
9. Place the bread ball on the cookie dough and gently cover the bread ball with the cookie dough, using your hand.
10. Coat the cookie dough with sugar and place onto the baking sheet, seam side down. Repeat for the other 5 balls.
11. Gently draw crossed lines pattern on the cookie dough (3x3 or 4x4) using a dough scraper or a knife.
12. Cover and let the bread rise in a warm place until the dough has gone x1.5 in volume, about 50 to 60 minutes.
13. Pre-heat the oven to 190℃ and reduce the heat to 170℃ to bake for 13 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack.
