How to Make Hamburger Buns & Menchi Katsu Burger (Step-by-Step Basic Bread Recipe for Beginners) - Video Recipe

We have extremely hot summer (over 35C/95F) in Japan!!!

So, I decided to best use this heat to rise bread. LOL


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DqEtH38kW7Y

I wrote the recipe step by step with the tips that you could never fail :)



---------------------------------
Hamburger Buns (Menchi Katsu Burger)

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 90min-120min
Number of servings: 8

Ingredients:
200g (7.0oz.) bread flour
20g (0.7oz.) butter
1 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. dry yeast
100ml warm water *30C/86F
20g (0.7oz.) beaten egg
1/2 tsp. salt
leftover beaten egg
white sesame seeds

Directions:
((Kneading))
1. You want all the ingredients at room temperature.
2. Mix warm water, salt and beaten egg together.
3. In a large bowl, place bread flour, butter, sugar, and dry yeast. Keep the dry yeast away from butter as the salt (in the butter) will kill the dry yeast.
4. Gradually mix in the warm water mixture. Use your hand to mix together until formed.
5. Transfer the dough to the counter, stretch the dough for a few times using your palms, fold it in half, turn it around (90C), and stretch again. Repeat and knead until smooth, without adding any extra flour for 10-15 minutes). The dough should be very elastic which when stretched becomes almost translucent.
((1st Proving / Proofing / Rising))
6. Lightly oil a large bowl. Form the dough into a ball and place it in the bowl seam side down. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap (to keep the surface of the dough from drying out), and leave to proof in a warm place (30C/86F) for 30-60 min or until it has doubled or tripled in size. (In winter, you can use the proof function on your home oven!)
((Finger Test))
7. Coat your finger in flour and poke the dough. If the hole stays, it's ready. If the dough springs back, it needs to proof more. If the dough shrinks, it is over proofed. In this case, you'd better flatten out and make a pizza…
((Knock-Back & Bench Time / Resting))
8. Place the dough onto a floured surface and punch out the air with your palm.
9. Divide it into 8 equal pieces using a bench scraper or a knife. Quickly form them into balls.
10. Place them on a baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap (to keep the surface of the dough from drying out), and rest for 10 minutes. The dough is surprised because you punched, so please let them rest for a while before you start shaping.
((Shaping))
11. Using a rolling pin or your palm, flatten out the dough to 3-inch-wide. Then place them on a baking sheet.
((2nd Proving / Proofing / Rising))
12. Cover with plastic wrap (to keep the surface of the dough from drying out), and leave to proof in a warm place (30C/86F) for 20-30 min or until they have doubled in size. (In winter, you can use the proof function on your home oven!)
13. Preheat the oven to 200C (392F).
((Baking))
14. Brush the dough with the leftover beaten egg, and sprinkle with some sesame seeds.
15. Bake at 200C (392F) for about 10 minutes. Place them on a wire rack to cool.

Ingredients for Menchi Katsu (Minced Cutlet) Burger:
hamburger buns
broccoli minced cutlet
mustard
mayonnaise
sliced cheese
Tonkatsu sauce
shredded cabbage

* To keep the surface of the dough from drying out, a wet towel is okay but plastic wrap is easier!

* You can freeze the buns up to 1 month. Thaw at room temperature and warm in an oven or a frying pan before eating.

How to Make MILO Bagels - Video Recipe

Soft and chewy with a slightly sweet MILO flavor! Yummy XD


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvMX8RbJ96A

It goes great with Anko (sweet Azuki red bean paste)!!!
Also ham and cheese surprisingly match well. hehe



---------------------------------
How to Make MILO Bagels

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 40min
Number of servings: 2

Ingredients:
180g (6.4oz.) bread flour
50g (1.8oz.) Nestle MILO
1/2 tsp. dry yeast
1/4 tsp. salt
120ml warm water

Directions:
1. Place bread flour, MILO, dry yeast in a large bowl. Add warm water (38C-40C=100F-104F) and roughly mix the ingredients. Then add salt and knead for about 5 minutes until the dough is uniform and smooth. (You can knead the dough on the counter. Salt controls the rising, so it is better added later. If your dough is too soft, add little more flour. But it is better soft than stiff to get them incorporated. Adding water later won't mix well…)
2. Divide the dough into 2 portions and shape into balls. Wrap each in plastic wrap and let rest for 5 minutes. (Meanwhile, you can wash dishes.)
3. Roll out the dough into a rectangular shape. Fold bottom up twice, leaving one side open. Wrap around the other side with the open side to form a doughnut shape, sealing the ends securely.
4. Wrap in plastic wrap again and let rest for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 428F (220C). Bring a large pot of water to a boil
5. Add 1 tbsp. of honey in a boiling water (it gives the bagels a nice shine). Cook for about 1 minute on each side until the bagels have a shriveled look. Then immediately remove to the baking sheet lined with aluminum foil or parchment paper, and bake at 428F (220C) for 15 minutes.

Wrap bagels in aluminum foil to keep them moist. They stay soft and chewy till the next day!

Tsubu-an (sweet Azuki red bean paste with skins) goes great with MILO bagels :D

Curry and Rice Bread (Using a Bread Machine) - Video Recipe

This video will show you how to bake Curry and Rice Bread using a Home Bakery (Bread Machine or Bread Maker): Panasonic SD-BH104


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HlCGxaih-LE

Adding a bowl of cooked rice makes the bread moist and gives it a slightly chewy texture. Yummy!!!



I hope you enjoy this idea :)

---------------------------------
Curry and Rice Bread

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 4 hours
Number of servings: 1 loaf (6 slices)
Calories per slice: 260cal

Necessary Equipment:
Panasonic SD-BH104
http://ctlg.panasonic.jp/product/info.do?pg=04&hb=SD-BH104

Ingredients:
210g (7.4oz.) bread flour (hard flour or strong flour)
2 tbsp. sugar
1 tbsp. powdered milk (dried milk)
1 tsp. salt
5g (0.18oz.) curry powder
1/2 tsp. black pepper
150g (5.3oz.) cold cooked white rice
20g (0.7oz.) butter
30g (1.0oz.) diced processed cheese
130ml water
3/4 tsp. dry yeast
* 40g (1.4oz.) diced potatoes
* 30g (1.0oz.) diced carrots
* 30g (1.0oz.) sliced bacon strips

Directions:
1. Not to make a mistake, measure all the ingredients in advance with a measuring cup and measuring spoon. If you make a mistake, you will waste 4 hours baking the bread. (Measuring cup and measuring spoon come with the bread machine.) Or, you want to remember where you are up to if anyone talked to you while placing the ingredients.
2. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Cook diced potatoes and carrots al dente, then drain well.
3. Remove the bread pan (twist the bread pan anti-clockwise and lift up to remove) and set the kneading blade. Make sure that they are clean before you use.
4. Place and pile up the bread flour, sugar, powdered milk, salt, curry powder, black pepper, cold cooked white rice, butter, and diced processed cheese in the middle of the bread pan. Then pour in the water around the pile. Wipe the outside of the pan to remove any flour or liquid.
5. Put the bread pan into the bread machine and turn slightly clockwise.
6. Close the lid.
7. Open the upper lid and place the dry yeast in the dry yeast dispenser. It will add the dry yeast automatically. Wipe if it's wet but avoid generating the static electricity.
8. Choose the "Gohan" baking option. Select the "Gohan" bread type. Select the "Raisin" mode with a note: extra ingredients can be added directly into the bread pan when the beep sounds. Start the machine.
9. When the machine beeps, add extra the ingredients: diced potatoes, diced carrots, and sliced bacon strips. The machine automatically starts after 3 minutes.
10. When it's done, press stop and remove the bread pan from the bread machine immediately. Leave to cool on a kitchen cloth for 2 minutes. Then remove the bread from the bread pan and allow to cool on a wire rack. Remove the blade if the blade got stuck in the bread.

Note: You can only place dry ingredients (e.g. dried fruit, nuts) in the raisin dispenser.

Katsu Sando Tonkatsu Sandwich
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmkdRm85kGU

((Tonkatsu))
8 thinly sliced pork

Tonkatsu sauce

Directions:
((Tonkatsu))
1. Layer 4 slices of pork to make 1 Tonkatsu and season both sides with salt and pepper.

No Yeast Easy Pizza Dough

It is sunny again!
I can't believe it's gonna rain this weekend!

Today, I want to write about my garden spot.
Almost 3 years ago, I tried to grow celosia flower plants, but they were all eaten by locusts. Then I grew shiso (perilla) using edible insect killer spray, but it didn't work and eaten by them again.
I gave up growing leafy ones and tried to grow grape tomatoes and habaneros (my boyfriend's choice) from seedlings. It took about 3 months to grow up but was finally successful!

Those tomatoes were the most delicious of all!
I used them for our pizza!

Talking about pizza, I have a super easy thin pizza dough recipe :)
No yeast used, so you can save time to let it rise!!!



---------------------------------
No Yeast Easy Pizza Dough

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 30min
Number of servings: makes 25cm (10inch) pizza dough

Ingredients:
150g (5.2oz.) bread flour (hard flour or strong flour)
a pinch of salt
a pinch of sugar
2 tsp. olive oil
1/3 cup (65cc) warm water

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees C (482 degrees F).
2. In a large bowl, place strong flour, a pinch of salt and sugar, and olive oil.
3. Add warm water slowly and gently mix with fingertips.
4. Press into a ball with your hands, wrap in plastic wrap, leave it still for 10 minutes.
5. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough out into a 25cm (10inch) circle.
6. Punch some holes in the dough with a fork to let the air escape while the pizza is in the oven.
7. Bake at 250 degrees C (482 degrees F) until dough is lightly browned.
8. Put on your toppings of choice and bake it for 15 minutes or until done.

My original recipe in Japanese is here.

I enjoyed a lot but was better buy than grow. My garden was so small that I finished these tomatoes in a few days. I hope to have a big garden someday.

Yesterday, I went to the spa again. I had free LPG Cellulite Treatment for the second time, this time with thermotherapy. They use something called "W block heat therapy" to warm internal organs and control the automatic nerve system. Your fat softens and starts to lose weight. When used in combination, LPG works effective and dramatically reduces cellulite. Of course, you won't see a result in one shot. They suggest you to continue for more than 20 times... which is inconceivable! So, this was my last free trial (out of 3) since the W block heat therapy counts one.
I would rather continue taking a hot bath and massage cellulite (lymph) everyday.

Sorry about my spa stuff!

Again, I am posting this on Saturday morning.
I guess I can't stay awake on Friday night.

Okay, see you next week.
Have a sunny weekend :)
