Baking together

Hanushi (from Simply hanushi) & I had a great time baking together at my place this afternoon! We were cracking our brains last week thinking of what to bake. Hanushi suggested baking 'Roti Boy' & green tea buns (she is a green tea lover!) while I suggested to do Ang Ku Kueh since 'kueh' is the theme for Aspiring Bakers this month. 

Black Glutinous Ang Ku Kueh
(Recipe adapted & modify from Happy Flour)


Ingredients
Dough:
130g glutinous rice flour
20g black glutinous rice flour

50g sweet potato (steamed & mashed)
125g water
1/2 tbsp oil


*Any fillings of your choice (we use yam paste from PH)   

Method 
1. Mix all the dough ingredients together & knead to form a soft dough.
2. Wrap the dough up & rest it in the fridge for 10mins.
3. Weigh 28g of dough for skin & wrap 14g of filling into the dough & seal opening.
4. Place the kueh into a greased mould & press it to set the shape. 

5. Knock out the kueh & place it on a piece of baking paper.
6. Steam for 10mins & brush some cooking oil on the surface of the kuehs.

Roti Boy / Green tea buns
(Recipe adapted & modify from Lucky Inn 幸福小站)


 Both of us heart these Roti Boy. The crust is thin & crunchy while the bun is so soft inside.  
 
 
 Green tea buns for our breakfast tomorrow ;)

You are able to get black glutinous rice flour here in Singapore? My mum love  black glutinous ang ku kueh and I hoped to make some for her again. Unfortunately, I can't find it anywhere.
