A very happy 2014 to all.. The first thing that I look forward to every morning to refresh and rejuvenate my mind and body is a cup of hot coffee…I’m a crazy coffee lover. Me and husband love our morning coffee together….. Coffee paired with a mild sweet bun or a roll….nothing can satisfy my taste buds more than that…
Koffiebroodje, my this month’s challenge in baking partner….I’m so thankful to swathi and Kaveri of Palakkad samayal for introducing me to this simple and wonderful recipe that me and my family loved…
Koffiebroodje or coffee bun is a Dutch special bun taken along with a hot cup of coffee. The Dutch people are famous for their love for pastries, cakes and addiction for coffee…. Everyone would love to sit down for a hot cup of coffee and a bun or slice of cake… This koffiebroodje is a sweet and sticky bun roll with a custard and raisin filling centre…
This recipe usually has raisins…but somehow I didn’t add them since my daughter doesn’t prefer raisins. So I just made the store bought vanilla pudding mix and added it to the recipe
2 1/2 cups of flour
1 cup and two tablespoons of milk (250ml), warm
1/2 stick of butter
2 tablespoons of powdered milk
1/3 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of salt
2 teaspoons of active dry yeast
1tsp vanilla essence
Strawberry jam – 2tbsp
Warm water – 1tbsp
In a food processor with a kneader attachment, add in the flour, warm milk, yeast, sugar, salt, vanilla, milk powder and knead it to soft ball
On the working surface dust a little flour and work the dough with your hands. Put the dough in a glass bowl covered with a cling film in a microwave oven or an oven undisturbed with the light on for an hour or two so that it doubles in size
Prepare the custard or pudding as directed in the box with half the amount of liquid and let it cool.
After an hour work the dough again.
Roll the dough into square 12 x 12 inches and about 1/4 inch thick, spread the pudding and roll it starting from the further side of the dough towards u.
Place it seam side down and cut it into slices of about an inch and a half thick.
Arrange the slices cut side down on a baking paper. Cover it ans proof for another 20 – 30 mins
Preheat the oven to 180 degree celcius. Brush the rolls with milk and bake them for about 25mins until they turn golden brown.
Take the rolls out of the oven and brush it with glaze
