Pumpkin Sausage Bun

Hope no one is scare away by my horrible looking Pumpkin Sausage Bun, hehe...

The other time, i did the Sweet Potato Sausage Buns from Cooking Pleasure blog, this round, i try out with pumpkin.

Recipe from Cooking Pleasure blog :
[makes 10-12 pieces]
300 gm pau flour or plain flour
100 gm mashed sweet potatoes [I used purple sweet potatoes]
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
120-130 ml water
2 tsp yeast
3 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp white sesame seeds [optional]
some toasted black sesame seeds - for garnish [optional]

10 pieces chicken sausage - steamed for 10 minutes -  set aside to cool

Using a Dough Mixer or Hand Knead :

Combine all the ingredients [except sesame oil and seeds] in a mixing bowl.  Knead until soft [about 5-10 minutes].  Then add in the sesame oil, continue to knead until soft, smooth and elastic.  Add sesame seeds and knead for 1-2 minutes to mix well.

  • Shape into a ball and cover to rest for about 20-30 minutes or until double in size.

  • Punch down dough and remove dough to a floured surface, divide into 2 round balls.   Flatten each ball and cut into 5 equal portion.  Shape each portion in long slender strips.  
  • Use a strip to wrap a sausage into a roll.   Place roll on a piece of greaseproof paper.   Place shaped dough in the steaming tray.

  • Leave to prove for 15 - 20 minutes or until double in size.

  • Steam over high heat for 10 minutes in a steamer.  Off heat and leave rolls for a further 3 minutes before uncovering to cool on rack.  This is to prevent wrinkle,  rough skin  [sometimes they may be a little wrinkle - probably because of proofing time but the texture is unaffected].

  • By using half of the recipe, i should be using 150g plain flour and 50g mashed pumpkin, but instead i used 100g plain flour and 100g mashed pumpkin and what i get is that the dough is soft and sticky which makes me a bit more difficult and more time to shape the bun and in the end turns out to be ugly.
