chocolate wassant breada fellow singaporean friend (amongst many others) always complain about the quality of bread in beijing. i think a large reason is attributed to the water and ingredients that the bakery use (in my hubby’s words, the bread here stinks)… plus, the weather here really does not help to keep the bread moist… anyway (coming back), one of the answers to the ” you bake so much… who eats them” question, is this friend… whom, well, truly works hard… so the late hours, plus “i hate the bread in beijing” had him turn to my bakings (wooo-hooo)…. so as you figured, yes, this is also baked for him

Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

chocolate wassant bread

– at the last folding/rolling stage, i rolled the dough into a length of 54cm and sliced triangle shapes out of the dough (measurements depends on how big you want your bun to be). the base of my bun is 4cm
三折、擀开程序后,我将面皮干成 54厘米长的面皮,并切出三角形(大小随心意)。我每份面皮的宽度是 4厘米

– make a small cut at the middle of the base as this allows you to roll your bun better. when rolling, stretch the dough by holding it with one hand on the pointed end whilst rolling up using the other hand
切出面皮的正中间切一个小口以便卷起。卷面团时,一手拉着面皮的尖端,另一手将面包卷起

– i brushed my buns with egg wash (i added 1/2 tbsp water to the egg that was leftover from the main dough)
我在面包上刷了蛋液(用剩余的鸡蛋拌入 1/2大匙水即可)

– my buns were baked for 18 mins in preheated oven of 180 degrees C
我用了 180摄氏度烤箱,面包烤了 18分钟

  • Goh Wan Xia (April 25, 2016)

    Hi! May I know what type of chocolate to use for the chocolate paste? Semi sweet chocolate chips? Or chocolate compound?

    • Victoria Bakes (April 26, 2016)

      Hi I used semi sweet choc chips

      • Goh Wan Xia (April 26, 2016)

        Hi, thanks! by the way how to do egg wash? full egg or just egg yolks?

  • Victoria Bakes (April 26, 2016)

    Hi, as mentioned in personal notes , it\’s water added to the leftover egg used from the dough

    • Goh Wan Xia (April 29, 2016)

      Sorry, i just looked at the dough recipe it says 38g egg, 31g egg yolk. 38g Egg does it mean whole egg (yolk and white mixed/beaten together) ?

      • Victoria Bakes (April 29, 2016)

        Hi, yes, you are right.

      • Goh Wan Xia (May 1, 2016)

        Thanks! Also for the bread starter dough, water just from tap water or need to be warm water?

  • Victoria Bakes (May 1, 2016)
