Coconut Icing Custard Scroll

Salam everyone,

I've been wanting to do some baking since last week but the mood wasn't there.  Wanted to make something that has custard filling.  So, I asked if hubby likes buns with custard fillings.  His answer was...."Ohh yummmzz....will it have any icing?"  Doh!!  I just don't understand it.  Kiwis just love to have their buns with icing or cream topping.  I am so used to the savoury buns which are sold in the bakeries either in Singapore or Malaysia.  Really love the chicken floss or curry buns and if I were to choose any sweet buns it will always be with custard, red bean or kaya filling with no icing topping of course.

The idea of making this custard scroll came when I used to buy them at a bakery here.  When I first came to NZ abt 7 years ago, I wasn't very good at baking or cooking.  As years gone by, I've learnt how to bake and cook through many trials and errors and the internet of course ;)  The high end bakeries are usually owned by Kiwis and products are usually quite expensive.  Buns with funny names like bee stings, sunshine or the not funny ones like cream donuts and custard twists will usually be slopped, slapped and topped with thick icing or cream and are usually very, very sweet and expensive of course!!  One item might cost a minimun of $2.80 and up to $5.00 each.  The cheaper bakeries are usually owned by either Cambodians or Chinese, their bakes are not as good but cost abt 50% cheaper than the high end bakeries.  One thing that turns me off the cheap bakery is the smell.....urggghhh I just can't explain it hehehehez.

Ingredients (Dough) :
250 gm high protein flour
50 gm caster sugar
1/2 tsp fine salt
10 gm milk powder
1/4 tsp bread improver
1/4 tsp teh bread softerner
30 gm egg (lightly beaten & weighed)
6 gm instant yeast
20 gm butter
125 ml water

Method :
Mix yeast with warm water and set aside until it bubbles.
Make a well in the middle of the flour and add the rest of the ingredients except butter.
Mix till a dough is formed and knead in the butter until you get a smooth dough.
Proof dough for 50 mins or until doubled in size.
I used by Breadmaker.

Roll the dough into a rectangular shape.
Spread the custard filling.
Roll the dough tightly like a swiss roll.
Seal the ends and cut into 12 equal pieces.
Arrange in a baking tin and proof for another 45 mins or until doubled in size.

Once proofed, brush the top with the remaining egg and bake in a preheated 190 deg C oven for 25 mins.  Let custard roll cools down before icing it with the coconut icing.

I can imagine.. kat europe each donut yg sonia makan tak sampai 10mins cost 2.50 euros.. kalau tak kerana anak yg mintak.. tak kuasa mak nak beli donut itew nevertheless kita beruntung cos roti kat sini tak mahal.. especially if u beli yg kat neighbourhood area.. satu bun red bean baru 60 sen hahaha

Roti oh roti.. ku memang suka roti especially roti prancis :o)

Issshhh mahalnya donut dkt Euro. Actually kalau sodappp itu makanan mmg tak kisahlah nak byr lebih sikit. Tapi kadang2 walked past the cheap bakeries, Jannah tertempted nak beli the colourful buns. Bukannya sedap....setakat colourful jer. Tu yg tak nak kan.

I really love the neighbourhood bakeries dkt sg. Cheap but not nasty.....yummzzz yummzzz :ppp
