Iftar with family...

Yani and I "talk" to one another every single week.. be it via email.. via gchat or even via sms.. the bottom line is.. we talk.. period.. mostly abt our bakes and when i dont update my blog... she will sms me ... yes u heard it right... she will ask me if i am doing alright... ty dear for being a friend.. so when she told me last weekend that she had baked durian puff i was like.. woahhhh.. that sms kept me thinking abt it non stop that i had.. i just had to bake it today for iftar :o)

I baked these soes aka cream puff aka pate a choux aka profiteroles twice... prepared two types of fillings (simply cos sis lyn and family are not big fans of durian).. did vanilla and durian custard and took it to moms for our typical first night family iftar minus Hairi (not long to go my son!) ... everyone loved it!

Baked it using silpat mat!

225 ml water
100 g margarine - i used unsalted butter
1 tbsp granulated sugar

and Baked it using Mastrad mac sheets!

1. Sift flour on paper.
2.Place water, butter and sugar in a pot and heat until butter melts and the mixture starts to boil.
3. Remove from heat and pour in all the flour while continue beating.
4. Put back on the stove and mix until the dough forms a ball and leaves the side of the pot.
5. Remove the pot and pour the dough into a mixing bowl. Using a beater start beating the dough for 2 minutes.
6. Add eggs one at a time making sure thoroughly mixed. Dough should be soft and shiny.
7. Place into piping bag and pipe into shapes.
8. Bake in a preheated oven 180C until it's golden brown... abt 25mins

Vanilla custard
3 egg yolks
1 / 4 cup sugar
1 stick vanilla bean
1 cup UHT milk
15gr corn flour
1 tbsp Salted butter

1. Mix the egg yolks, sugar, corn flour, stir until well blended and pale yellow in color.
2. Heat the milk and vanilla bean until almost boiling, remove vanilla bean, pour half of the boiled milk into the beaten egg + sugar + corn flour, stir, then pour back into remaining milk , reheat, stirring constantly until custard thickens, remove from fire, add butter, stir until well blended, let it cool bef putting into piping bag.

Durian custard
220g durian flesh
3ooml milk
110g sugar
40g corn flour
1 egg yolk
1/4 teaspoon salt

1. Blend durian flesh and milk
2. Add in sugar and salt - place it in a pan

Hi Rima,

Hope all is well at your end and selamat berpuasa.

If lets say we don't have bread flour, what can we use to substitute the bread flour? Also, can you let me know what number piping tip you used to pipe the batter?

Rima said...

Ty Sally.. unlike yesterday.. tdy i took my medication in the morning and am feeling much better..

Some of the indon blogger used flour instead of bread flour so i guess u can sub flour for bread flour..

Am using IM to pipe my batter.

Rima!! sungguh menggoda la the cream puff! bila i tengok k.yani punya, dah telan air liur, tgk urs, terus rasa nak buat sekarang jugak. tapi, i tak penah buat cream puff and durian is not my favourite. maybe i'll go for the vanilla custard.
