Longan and Walnut Muffin, bake with Panasonic Electric Oven NB-H3800SSK 桂圆核桃马芬

My first bake using Panasonic Electric Oven NB-H3800SSK is dedicated to this Longan and Walnut muffin. This Longan and walnut muffin is very popular in Taiwan. Our Taiwan's hiking friend bought us this muffin for our snack during my recent hiking trip to Jade mountain. Taiwanese is very clever using these two healthy ingredients to create this special muffin. I love the dried longan's natural sweetness in this muffin and also always love walnut in any bakes .

Red Bean Bao_Natural yeast 天然酵母_ 红豆包子

Earlier i taught you to split sourdough starter into two, one feed with all purpose flour and another with bread flour ( can use to make bread). So i can use the starter that cultured with all purpose flour to make steamed baozi, mantou or buns. Actually sourdough starter is like Chinese so called 老面.

Red bean bread buns_Natural yeast 天然酵母_ 红豆面包

Some reader asked me is there any standard calculation for the amount of sourdough starter to use to make bread. From my experience, for rusty or country sourdough bread, usually use very little of starter, around 25%-30% ( starter over total dry ingredients), as to slower down the fermentation and create very nice aroma and mild tangy taste of sourdough bread. As for Asian type of soft bread, based on my own calculation, usually i use about 70-80% (starter over total dry ingredients) , as to speed up the proofing process in order not to get a sour taste of bread. You know it will not taste nice if a soft buns tasted sour right?
This time i baked this batch of red bean buns using homemade red bean paste, and use very simple bread ingredients which easy to make, still resulted soft and nice buns.

Chocolate Chiffon Cake_with natural yeast 天然酵母_巧克力戚风蛋糕

Natural yeast from sourdough starter can be very versatile, not only can make into bread, even can use it to make baozi, steamed cake , kuih-muih, pancake, waffle and etc. This time i used it to bake a chiffon cake and great that it work well too. The best thing is I can't detect any sour taste and it just tasted like normal chiffon cake. So when you have discard sourdough starter, instead of throw it away, why not use it to make a chiffon cake?
