巧克力海綿蛋糕的秘訣,學會成功率百分百!




超軟棉,很好吃的巧克力海綿蛋糕。保有濕潤綿密的口感,不乾更鬆軟,濃鬱的可可香。依個人喜愛,可裝飾,用來做雙層奶油裱花蛋糕,也能做成好吃的生日蛋糕,或各式節日的甜點也不錯。

材料:
(A) 蛋黃糊:
• 3個蛋黃 (大)
• 35克糖
• 25克玉米油
• 28克牛奶
• 1茶匙香草精
• 18克可可粉,過篩
• 45克低筋麵粉

(B) 蛋白霜:
• 3個蛋清 (大)
• 1/2茶匙檸檬汁
• 45克糖

(C)
• 準備6寸的蛋糕模,塗上黃油,然後將圓形紙放於中心粘貼固定。在盤內,均勻地,撒上一層麵粉,即成 。

(D)
• 建議使用烤箱溫度計,保證與配方的完美契合。烤箱先預熱至指定溫度130°C,才能符合食譜上的烘烤時間。烤箱預熱約需10分鐘,不足的話會未達到指定溫度。

方法:
1)準備一個乾淨的碗。加入(A)蛋黃,糖,玉米油,香草精,牛奶,可可粉與低筋麵粉混合過篩,加入蛋糊中,一起拌勻至無粉粒。別過度攪拌。

2)在另一個乾淨,無油無水的碗,先打發蛋白,加入幾滴檸檬汁和糖,分三次加入1/3糖,接近濕性發泡,加入最後的糖,再​​打至乾性發泡,能立出少許彎勾,大約3分鐘。

3)將打發好的蛋白先舀三分之一出來,與巧克力麵糊混合均勻,而後再倒回盆中, 手法是從下往上翻拌。速度要均勻,不要畫圈,然後翻拌次數不要太多。過度翻拌,手法不對都會導致蛋白消泡。

4)把拌勻的麵糊從高處均勻倒入6寸圓型蛋糕模,使用刮板刮平。雙手提起烤盤,左右抖動幾下,使麵糊更平整。摔兩下除去氣泡。

5)冷水浴,放烤箱中層 130°C - 150°C 度,上下火烤60分鐘。烤好後,打開烤箱門, 冷卻至少10分鐘,直到烤箱溫度達到50℃。出爐後, 再摔兩下,才不會出現塌陷。蛋糕表層有裂縫,這是絕對正常的。如果追求完美不開裂的表面,用低温較長的烘烤時間100°C - 120°C度,上下火烤80分鐘。每個人的烤箱不一樣, 自己要調整。做好的蛋糕,表面撒上糖粉,用新鮮草莓裝飾。放冰箱保存時間最好不要超過2天。

2) For making caramel, In another saucepan, add the sugar and water, cook until it is dissolved with no stirring and keep an eye on it, as the sugar begins to a syrup ranging in colour from golden to dark brown. Remove immediately from the heat to make sure it doesn't burn.

3) Brush the ramekins with softened butter and quickly and carefully pour hot caramel syrup into the ramekins and turning evenly coat the bottom and sides. Set aside.

4) In a medium bowl, combine eggs, vanilla extract, milk mixture and gently whisk until combined.

5) Set a strainer over a saucepan and put the egg mixture through the strainer, repeated twice and transfer your mixture back through the sieve, then pour into a prepared ramekins and cover with aluminium foil.

These are the best cocktail buns I've tasted and the house smell like a bakery. I knead the dough by hand, but recently I have a neck pain and I can't always stand at the counter and knead the bread, so the bread machine is a life saver. This is my own and the quick way when you only need bread, It's soft and fluffy and it keeps the shape nicely. The coconut filling is not as hard to make as you might think. They are so yummy!

•  1 tbsp olive oil 

Makes 18
---35g each dough---

Makes 24
---25g each dough---

2) Press the MENU button until desired program ''raw dough'' is selected. so that the machine does all the mixing and kneading. Once the process has been completed ''stir 1'', open the lid, add 1 tbsp olive oil to the bread pan, and continue ''stir 2'' until beeps will signal.

3) Press the MENU button until you reach ''ferment''. The bread maker will allow your dough to rise for 30 minutes giving the dough more depth flavor or until beep to signal and then you take it out of the machine. 

4) Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, punch down the dough. Cut each piece 35g, into 18 pieces total. Scoop a teaspoon of filling onto the centre. Pull and pinch the edges of the dough together. Repeat with the remaining dough and place on the baking tray.

5) Rise in the oven with boiled water on the underneath for 30 minutes to 1 hour until double or triple in sized.

6) Lightly brush the buns with beaten egg. To make the topping, mix all the ingredients together until a soft paste is formed. Spoon the paste into a piping bag and snip off one corner and pipe two lines and sprinkle some sesame seeds. 

7) Baked in pre-heated oven at 150°c for about 25 minutes or until golden brown. (Baking time depends on the size and shape of the bread being baked).

Helpful Tips:
