Yet another saturday…!!! I skipped my Saturday Morning Bakes for the last 2 weeks. August 29th and September 5th. I feel so bad that I couldn’t post anything on August 29th despite making Red Velvet Cupcakes. I chose to make Red Velvet Cuppies because it was my 11th Wedding Anniversary on that day and I wanted to make something special and indulging. I had some guests coming over on that day and so didn’t get any time to click the frosted cuppies before serving.
All purpose flour – 240 grams
Cake Flour – 60 grams
Sugar – 40 grams
Salt – 5 grams
Instant yeast – 6 grams
Milk – 10 grams
Butter – 30 grams, softened
Water – 150 ml
Egg – 1
Egg yolk – 1, for eggwash
Add all the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix.
Make a well in the centre and add egg, milk and water and knead into a soft dough.
Add butter and knead well.
Cover with cling wrap and keep it in a warm area for proofing, either for one hour or till the dough rises to double volume.
Deflate the dough on a floured surface and divide it into 10 equal balls.
Loosely cover it with a cling wrap.
Roll one ball at a time into an oval shape, place chocolate strips on one edge and cut the other edge into stripes, fold over and tuck the sides underneath.
Transfer it to a lined baking tray.
Loosely cover with a cling wrap once you are done with all the breads and keep it for another 45 minutes to one hour.
Preheat the oven.
Remove the cling wrap and brush the top of the bread with egg yolk and bake it for 20 minutes at 175C.
