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 …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
