Hi everyone, I hope you are all good? I remember for a long while I had always liked eating GALA. I always had to eat it one way or the other. When traveling back for school or just long outings, I always had to have gala. But after a while, it got really old. I just thought this has got to stop.
Lol, anyways. I decided to shift my focus somewhere else. So whilst compiling posts for the blog, I remembered I didn’t have any post for sausage roll. For someone like me who loves to bake, I was surprised that I didn’t have it on my blog. I went straight into work mode and made some. I love it. The crust was soft, but with just the right amount of firmness.
One thing I always tell people is that when making pasty, the ratio of the flour and butter must accurate or else, you will end up with crunchy and crumbly pastry.
Here are a few tips to help for future pastries
- Always sift the flour
- Always use GOOD quality butter
- Always refrigerate after making the dough
Now that we have some of the basics sorted,let’s get started shall we
- 3 cups of Flour
- 225g of Butter
- 1 Knorr cube
- A pinch of Curry
- A pinch of Garlic powder
- A pinch Thyme
- 300g of uncooked sausage (Satis in Nigeria). (I used Cumberland sausages, they are very tasty
- 1 egg
- Chopping boards
- Rolling pin
- Pastry brush
Prep time: 10 minutes
Non bake time: 30 minutes
Baking time: 25 minutes
Once the dough has been refrigerated start preparing the filling
Roll out the dough into a square and then cut a neat square with a knife
Repeat the process until all the dough has been used up.
Brush the baking paper with butter or oil(this will prevent the dough sticking to the pan
Place the rolls on the Baking paper, poke it with a fork and brush it with the egg (this will give a shiny and soft finish)
Bake for 25 minutes
After 25 minutes, remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes.
Then it’s ready to be served!
There you go!
I’ll see you all in my next post
