I was so silly that I have done something wrong without realising it until the very last minute. I took out the pumpkin from my fridge cut out one big piece and straight I weight it according to the recipe 150gm (I hv forgotten to unskinned them before I weight it**). I washed, unskinned and cut it into smaller pieces, straight I put them into a small bowl and steamed it (I weight the pumpkin with it's skin on and after I unskinned and steamed it, the total weight of the smashed pumpkin is only 100gm - short of 50gm!!!) How??? The idea of adding more water to make up the weight just come into my mind, I added 30gm more water mixed with the smashed pumpkin, luckily it's only 30gm and not 50gm.
I can see the dough are too wet and very sticky...oh, is it because of the water I add?? and, I add some more flour after about 10 minutes of kneading...I know this time my pumpkin buns will not be as fluffy and soft as it use to be. Don't worry, the recipe I share here does produce soft and fluffy buns. But, make sure you don't repeat the mistakes I made here. Unskinned the pumpkin first before you weight it ~ lol!! Lesson learned**
Recipe adapted from Ann-Ann's Blog 人生加油站
Instant Yeast (酵母) - 11gm
Sugar (糖) - 1 tsp
Warm Water (温水) - 150gm
(In a deep mixing bowl, mix all the ingredients above and let it proof for 10-15mins. Set aside)
Hong Kong Flour (包粉) - 500gm
Sugar (糖) - 8 tbsp
Oil (食油) - 8 tbsp
Salt (盐) - 1/4 tsp (少许)
Smashed Steamed Pumpkin (金瓜/南瓜蒸软成泥) - 150gm
Knead the ingredient (B) until it is mix together then pour in ingredient (A). Knead all the ingredients into a soft dough (20-30mins).
Let it rest for 10mins before divided the dough into 16-18 equal big portion. Roll the dough into a big trangular and roll it into spring roll shapes and lined it with 2"x5" patch paper. (I let it prove for another 10-15mins under the hot sun, covered the dough with cling wrap or wet cloth to prevent it from dries up while proofing)
Steam it in hot boiling steamer for 12-15mins.
