Waduuuhh sampai 4 hari bowwww....., belum tangan nih, ngegiling dan ngegiling terussss....hadeuuuh.... Tapi hasilnya menakjubkan....ahhhaaaa aku bisa bikin Pastry sendiri loooohhhh.....:D

Berikut resepnya dari host KBB :

Eccles Cakes

Makes about 50 smallish cakes :

Filling :6 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cinnamon stick
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
Peel from 2 lemons Peel from 2 oranges 2 cups dried currants 1/2 cup
golden raisins
2 tablespoons brandy
1/4 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the spices and
peel and fry until they are fragrant in the butter. Add the fruit, brandy,
and juice. Simmer for ten or fifteen minutes, stirring occasionally. Let
cool, then put in the fridge overnight to let the flavors really meld. 

Puff Pastry :
1 pound (4 sticks) unsalted butter
4 cups AP flour
1 teaspoon salt

Direction :
Between 1 and 1/2 cups ice water Take three of the sticks of butter and slice them in half lengthwise and

  • then again widthwise. Arrange them into a rectangle on a large piece of
  • wax paper. 
  • Put another piece of wax paper on top and roll them the butter out into a 9x12-inch rectangle between the sheets of waxed paper. Chill for at least four hours. 
  • Put the four cups of flour into a food processor. Cut up the remaining stick of butter and add it, bit by bit, to the flour and pulse into dusty crumbs. 
  • Dump the butter-flour crumbs into a big bowl and add ice water gradually, stirring, just until the dough comes together. Knead for a couple minutes until smooth. 
  • Wrap and refrigerate four hours or overnight. Roll the dough out into a 1/4-inch-thick rectangle and place the butter rectangle on top. 
  • Fold the corners of the dough over the butter and rollout to its previous size. Fold the sides of the dough up to the middle,like folding a piece of paper into thirds, then fold it again in half — like closing a book. 
  • You're working the butter into the dough in finer and finer layers; the butter if it stays cold will puff the pastry up in delicious and spectacular ways when you're finished. 
  • Wrap this parcel well and put back in the fridge for at least an hour or two. 
  • Take the dough out and roll the parcel out into the rectangle again, then repeat the folding process. 
  • This is working the butter into the pastry in finer and finer layers. Continue this process - rolling out, then folding.
  • These are called turns. 
  • Do at least four turns - six or more is even better.
  • It's very simple: the longer you let the dough rest and chill between
  • turns, and the more turns you do, the lighter and flakier your pastry will be. 
  • I did five turns over the course of about 8 hours, and mine was fine - but if I was doing some other kind of pastry I would definitely let it sit overnight at least once. 

1 egg, beaten Coarse sugar Heat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
Take a third of the the puff pastry dough from the fridge. It should be very cold
and firm, but not hard. 
Roll it out to a thickness of about 1/8-inch. 
Cut small circles - I used a biscuit cutter that gave me four-inch
You could do larger, but I wanted a lot of individual pastries.
Put a small dollop of filling (about 1 teaspoon) in the center of each
dough circle. 
Fold in half, like a potsticker dumpling, and seal the edges with your
Now bring the two pointy edges up and fold them in the center, on
the curved seam. Flatten out the little pouch with your fingers, and roll
it into a small circle - just thin enough that the filling shows through
the dough a little. 
Try not to let it leak out, though. Make two or three
shallow slashes in the top of the finished round cake. 
Brush with beaten egg, and sprinkle with sugar. 

(Note: I think that my
pastry dough was pretty warm by this point, from all the handling and
rolling. I didn't try this at the time, but in the future I think I would
put the finished, unbaked pans of cakes in the fridge or freezer to let
them chill again - maybe for an hour. This would make a higher, lighter
Bake for about 20 minutes, or until golden brown and puffy.

butter block

butter di giling, kemudian dinginkan di kulkas 4 jam

terigu, sisa butter digiling di Food processor

Hasil gilingan terigu dan butter, tambahkan air, aduk sampai terbentuk

Terigu yang telah terbentuk, bungkus plastik, dan simpan semalaman di lemari es

Setelah semalaman, adonan diamkan beberapa jam, agar bisa digiling

taruh margarin beku, tutup margarin dan giling
Setelah digiling, seperti ini, cukup berat menggilingnya karena keras...:(

lipat kembali dan giling, sampai empat kali melipat, dan menggiling
Bahan isian

Hasil jadi isian

Giling tipis adonan, bentuk sesuai selera

Ciri khas Eccless adalah dikerat dua tengahnya..:D

proses pemanggangan

Jadi dehhhh...Eccless Cake!

Dan ini logo lulusnyaaaa horeeeeee :
