Baking Bread With Tesco Breakmaker

BREAD MODE....

My Khind breadmaker has given up on me, the paddle just wouldn't turn and that happened before the MCO was implemented.  Instead of buying a new one, I borrowed my sister's Tesco breadmaker, I remember she telling me that she stops using it after one try.  Her bread turned out hard, I do not know why.... so I took the risk and tried it myself two days ago.  I googled for the recipe, following the orderly steps as mentioned.  The only change I made is that I used remaining bread flour in my fridge and mixed it with plain flour. 

The difference between my Khind and Tesco breadmaker is the sizes.  Khind loaf size is just nice for one person whereas Tesco one is enough for a family of 4.  Anyway..... I can always keep the remaining pieces in the fridge, two pieces per day is more than enough for me.
280ml water
2 tbsp oil
2 tbsp brown sugar
420gm flour
1tbsp milk powder (I didn't put cos I don't have that)
pinch of salt
1tsp yeast is the last ingredient to put in... 
After 3 hours... 
The crust is a bit hard when it is hot.... 
But softer after cooling down..... 
Soft inside though... 
8 pieces in one loaf.... 
For my breakfast this morning.... 
One piece with Kaya and one with peanut butter... 
Very filling... 
Next time I will try putting in dried cranberries, raisins and nuts!

  1. Congratulations! You have made good research and baked a perfect loaf. When you add those dried fruits, they will add moisture and light fragrance to your next bread.

  2. It was the craze at one time, cheap then. Everyone in the family bought and was making bread every day...and then it fizzled out. I wonder if they still have their breadmakers and whether they can still be used. At a time like this, I regret not buying one myself - would be nice to make one's own bread, no need to go out and buy.

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

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
