It is the 2nd week of mid term school holiday. My boy had been having toasted bread, pancakes and sometimes oatmeal porridge for breakfast for the past week. Today, he requested for something different for a change. Everyone would get bored with the same routine breakfast, right? “How about a nutritious breakfast for a change,” I asked him He said ” Yeah! But what is it?” with a curious eyes blinking at me Yesterday, I had bought a bag of round buns which I had initially intended to make burger buns.     Coincidentally, I found a can of tuna in brine ( in the kitchen cupboard ), cucumber and a couple of red tomatoes in the fridge. Patty burgers are highly MSG and salted, pre-manufactured food isn’t an ideal […]

  Poop donuts? Would you eat a chocolate poop on the donut? No way! It would be insane! It is not a REAL poop. It’s just Nutella Chocolate that looks similar to a poop.     This afternoon, I was at Tesco, bought a Nutella Doughnut at Big Apple for my snack time. I love Big Apple Donuts, because they are delicious, sweet of course I simple LOVE the generous spread of chopped nuts and chocolates! Each doughnuts cost RM2.50 ( USD$0.57 )       I was about to take my first bite when my hubby said to my son; “Look, your mommy is eating Poop Doughnut!” “Eeeewww! Smelly mommy ! Eating Dog poop!” Bad daddy, although I knew he was just kidding. He just had to say something nasty when I am eating my favorite donut.     Look closely at the above picture… Does the Nutella chocolate REALLY looks similar to a doggie poop? The way it swirl to the tip gives anyone a “bad” impression.   Geez…if you focus your imagination, it does look similar to a dog poop but I don’t care! I took no notice of his ridiculous remark, sunk my teeth into the tasty chocolate doughnut . […]

  My son was craving for donuts today. He requested me to buy some donuts at the Tesco bakery shop for him before he comes back from school. I decided to try my hands on making homemade Potato Donut with a donut cutter I had recently  bought from  Tesco. Donuts are usually made of flour, sugar, milk , butter, egg and yeast. If you want a fluffy spongy donut, it is essential to use high protein flour or super fine flour that has  the additional baking powder and high protein wheat that aids in producing fluffy donuts.   Here is how I did it: Potato Donut Recipe   Ingredients: 180g high protein flour (6.34 ounce) 100g potato flakes (3.52 ounce) 1 tbsp castor sugar a pinch of salt ½ tsp baking powder 11g instant yeast ( 1 packet ) 1 large egg 220ml fresh milk (0,46 pint) 1 tbsp mil powder 30g butter (1.05 ounce)     Method to bake: Combine all ingredient in a cake mixer. Beat with high speed until form a smooth dough. Turn to floured surface knead and roll out, cut out with doughnut cutter. Leave to rise for 30 minutes. Deep fry the doughnuts into preheated oil until cooked and golden in color. Drain well. Sprinkle with castor sugar while hot. (optional) When cool completely, sprinkle with melted chocolate. (optional)   Tips: If you cannot finish these doughnuts in a single day, do chill them in the fridge and heat up in a toaster the  next morning for breakfast.   Do you buy doughnuts? Do you bake doughnuts on your own? […]

Are you running out of ideas what breakfast to prepare for your love ones in the morning? I used to wake up in the morning with a gloomy face. “What’s for breakfast?” is the first sentence that pops into my mind rather than brewing myself a cup of hot coffee. Bread. Yes, bread is a versatile ingredient that is easy […]

  I had 4 slices of a day old bread left on the shelf. I could not decide whether to turn them into ham sandwiches or mayonnaise egg bread. Too plain and boring for the kids.   Hence, I decided to turn them into Yogurt Bread Pudding for a change. This unique bread has a lot of nutritional value, yet still tastes delicious. It is a quick and easy process that takes around 30 minutes to bake.   I was afraid this Yogurt Bread Pudding may disappoint me but it turned out awesome! I was speechless by the soft texture, spongy bread mixture with yogurt. One of its kind of bread.   How To Bake Yogurt Bread Pudding? This Yogurt Bread Pudding recipe contains the least butter compare to all bread recipes that I had baked. I think 1 teaspoon of butter to spread 4 slices of bread will suffice. In addition, a cup of low fat yogurt is added. Small amount of sugar used. Raisins and optional red cherries to add in the nutritional value. However, 4 eggs are required to induce moist and tender bread pudding. Do not be stingy on the eggs. Insufficient eggs may result to hard and chewy texture. A perfect choice for breakfast idea or teatime dessert that goes well with hot beverages.     Here is the recipe for Healthy Yogurt Bread Pudding ============================= Prepare time: 10 min Baking time: 30 min Ready to serve time: 40 min Yield: 4 persons ============================ Ingredients Needed: 4 slices of a day old bread 1 tsp butter 30g chopped raisins 4 eggs 5 tbs sugar 150g ( 1 cup ) Low fat yogurt- Apricot or Strawberyy taste Optional- chopped red cherries   Step-by-step methods: Preheat oven at 180C Grease bread pan. Trim off bread crust. Spread butter over 4 slices of bread. Cut them into cubes or squares. […]

Yesterday night, I  had went to Jusco for this month grocery shopping . I decided to stop by to buy  at the bakery shop since the 30% offer had started after 8pm. I usually purchase  discount buns and breads for the next morning breakfast. Hence, I don’t have to busy myself in the kitchen after a day of grocery shopping. There was a tray […]

What is a brioche? Frankly speaking, I thought this mini buns are the same as any other burger buns!
