Simple Steps To Fruit Bread With Breadmachine

SINCE I TOOK RICE DURING THE DAY, I did not feel like taking rice again in the evening.  Lazy to go out to buy my dinner, it was raining actually by then and suddenly an idea came to my mind.  Bake Bread la!  Yes, I have failed twice last week, they turned out to be like cakes instead of bread, I wonder why.... this time I did not want to follow the recipe from other sources but follow strictly to the Khind instructions and recipes given.

If this time I failed again, then I must go "consult" my girl, for she has done twice during my absence and the bread she baked turned out great.  Yes, she followed the instruction book given whereas the mother, yours truly followed other recipes from the Internet.  Bread are very sensitive 'Food"... if the ingredients are not put accordingly to the sequence, it will turn out soggy... *speaking from experience... shy to take picture of my failed attempts too!*

Never mind, Never Give Up... so yesterday I tried again.... put the ingredients into the breadmaker step by step as written in the recipe below....
Recipe for Common Bread...
Last is the yeast... and then I clicked number 1 for Common Bread...
It took 2 hours plus for the whole process but in the midst, 
I threw in Cranberries, Blueberries and chopped-up walnuts....
I didn't take picture of those cos I am not sure whether they turned out or not...
*Pessimistic cos 3rd attempt*
After 2 hours plus, the "Beeping" sound was heard....
Look What I Found!!
Hello Mr. Breadie!!
This is how My Breadie looks like lying down at its side.... 
Breadie on its Behind.... 
OH, OH.... why got hole???
Then I realized I forgot to take out the paddle...
It should be taken out before the baking process starts...
Thus.... the Hole is Born.... 
No worries, who would want to look at the bottom anyway, right???
LOL.... 
And the Slicing Began.....
Lots of holes in between caused by my overfeeding of dried fruits and walnuts!
Couldn't resist biting a mouthful as I sliced and sliced.... 
I can just eat it like that..... 
Or with my Ginger Shred Jam from Robertsons Paddington ...
And as if it is not enough, I added in Chicken Floss as well!!
That was for my dinner yesterday.... 
Homemade Bread with Ginger Jam and Chicken Floss...
What a combination!
LOL....

  5. Really good! You don't have to buy bread anymore. Homemade bread is always better because you can add in your own nuts and fruits. Next project will be making coconut jam?

  7. From your picture, I think you put a bit too much yeast and baking powder.
    Also not too much oil if you bake a bread than cakes. I did that before.

    So normal bread, simple recipe like this

    500 gm of flour
    300 cc of water
    some cooking oil like two tablespoons
    n a pinch of salt n say two tablespoons of sugar

    Add the dried grape if you wish or oats.
    if you find the blended product too dry just add in bits of water.

    If too much margarine or oil, your bread sure turns out like cakes!
    hahaha.. I did that many times. But not bad to eat too, right?

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
