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?

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
