Sweet Rice Flour

Sticky Rice Flour

I searched Wiki, but couldn’t find one for sweet rice flour or sticky rice flour, but I did see “sticky rice” over there. And it did mention ‘glutinous rice flour’ in the article.

Below is the link for “sticky rice”:

Sticky Rice Flour is a popular ingredient to make sticky type snack, especially around Chines New Year.

Dough with sticky rice flour is pretty sticky, sometimes we’ll mix some white rice flour with it to make the dough firm enough to shape.

毛毛虫热狗包

 

毛毛虫热狗包

 

我想做这种毛毛虫面包有日子了,不过始终没有想好做什么馅。最近发现很多同事都喜欢一家甜甜圈店卖的热狗包,于是我就琢磨着把毛毛虫和热狗包综合在一起。味道真的是很不错,我拿了几个给同事吃,个个都说好吃的很。

材料:

面团:高筋面粉 200 克(1.5 杯),酵母 2 小勺,温牛奶 80 克,柠檬汁 10 克,鸡蛋 1 个,室温黄油 30 克(2 大勺),白糖 2 小勺,盐少许。

馅:热狗肠 6 根,碎乳酪适量。

表面刷料:蜂蜜和水按1:1的比例混匀。

做法:

1、酵母和白糖混合,用温牛奶化开,静置 10 分钟左右或到酵母液表面充满气泡。毛毛虫热狗包

2、把除黄油外的面团材料倒进酵母液,揉成面团。

3、把黄油切成小块,和面团一起揉匀,饧发到原来的两倍大。

如果时间比较紧,这步饧发可以省略,面团略饧 10-15 分钟即可。

4、把面团按扁揉圆,分成六等份。毛毛虫热狗包

5、取一份面团,擀成长方形。长方形的宽要略微长过热狗肠,长方的一端用刀切一些平行的口子。

6、把热狗肠从没有切口的一端卷起来,卷到刀口处。

7、再刀口处撒上适量的碎乳酪,边缘处留下一点空白。然后把热狗肠继续卷到头,封口朝下。

8、做好的热狗包生坯静置饧发到原来的两倍大。毛毛虫热狗包

9、烤箱预热 350 华氏度(175 摄氏度)。

10、蜂蜜和水混匀,刷在生坯表面,放入烤箱烤 20 分钟左右或到表面金黄。

11、面包拿出烤箱后趁热刷一层蜂蜜水,然后晾凉即可。

我起了玩心,把热狗肠切了切,面包的瓤就变了:
