VEGAN SWEET ROLLS


A fluffy and amazing rolls that can be shaped in many ways. The dough is so great to work with. I turned them into a roll  stuffed them with  thinly sliced banana and chocolate chip. Unlike the regular bread rolls, I didn't slice them before baking but bake them as a loaf.

Within an hour, it is well risen and  baked beautifully.  The rolls were incredibly  well received, compliments all around.  A sinful combination and so light!

Yield      :   10 rolls

2  C  all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp instant yeast
3 TB  vegetable oil
3/4 C  warm water
2 tsp sugar
3/4 tsp salt

FILLING
2 TB  melted vegan butter
1/2 C  chocolate chip
2 medium banana thinly sliced
2 TB brown sugar


METHOD

Combine  flour,  yeast,  sugar and salt in a mixing bowl.

Mix in oil and warm water, forms into soft dough.

Knead by hand for 5 minutes until smooth.

Transfer into oiled and covered  bowl, let rise until double for about an hour.

Punch the dough down, roll out into 11 x 13 in rectangle,  spread with melted butter, sprinkle brown sugar,  thinly sliced banana and chocolate chip.

Starting with long edge, roll  up dough,  pinch seams to seal  and place onto baking sheet.

EGGLESS BRIOCHE

Eggless Brioche Recipe @ http://treatntrick.blogspot.com

This is a light and easy to make brioche recipe. The whole process is considerably shortened by eliminating  the sponge,  preliminary rising and chilling the dough. You can even use your bread maker to bake one.

Without much hassle, this dough turned just amazing as regular brioche but with less butter and without egg.  If you don't have  a brioche pan, the other alternative is to use your muffin cup,  they came out perfect!

MINI SAMOSA

Mini Samosa Recipe @ http://treatntrick.blogspot.com

Samosa is a deep fried pastry stuff with savory filling, normally triangular in shape. It is either filled with spiced vegetables like potato, onion, peas or non vegetarian version with ground beef or chicken.

This is a light snack sold in restaurants or  by street vendors on pushcarts. They make an easy snack or great party finger foods serve during informal family meal or buffets.

Am  bit skeptical when I first saw this recipe  using  raw cabbage as a filling for samosa. So anxious to know how the taste  will be. This is my first trial making samosa with uncooked veggie.

Though it involves a lot of time to prepare especially shaping and frying, these are remarkably  appetizing and gone in seconds immediately after I had fried them. Will be making them again since my son really loves this samosa.
