Making Buns Out Of Breadmaker

UNEXPECTEDLY MY BUNS WERE "CREATED"...... not meant to be....

My first breadmaker Khind conked out last year, then I borrowed my sister's breadmaker, a Tesco brand in March before the lockdown.  I think I just used 3-4 times during the lockdown.  Yesterday I took it out again to make a loaf of bread, halfway through the kneading process, it suddenly became quiet.  Sensing something wrong, I switched it off and restarted the process again and it just wouldn't butt move... OH OH... KAPUT!! 

The kneading was half-way done, I left it to proof for an hour before I took it out and started kneading manually.  Left it to proof for another 15 minutes before I made them into balls... The chances of getting nice buns is 50/50 cos I followed the breadmaker recipe, not the manual one.  I dare not put the diced nuts and raisins into the dough, I should have and now I wonder why I did not... instead I sprinkled them on top of the buns before they went into the oven.  No pictures were taken because I did not have confidence of them turning out well....
Somehow, I like to see them "expanded" in the oven... 
My fat buns.... LOL.... 
Nice smell after 20 minutes..... 
Tested with a sharp knife before taking out.... 
Wanted to see if my knife can cut through!  LOL....
Amateurish of the egg yolk painting.... LOL... 
Odd shapes or not, we consumed them while they are still warm and soft....
Yes, they turned out soft and not hard as rock!
Just too bad that the mixed nuts were not mixed with the dough....
Anyway, this might be my last batch I am making manually...
Now.... I have two "retired breadmakers" in my store room...
What should I do with them????
Must find out why they conk out just like that!

  1. Wow! Nice bun on your first attempt! Sell off your konked bread maker to the recycle collector when he comes round your area and get a new one.

  2. Oh dear!!! Those breadmakers are so problematic? Been thinking of getting one - I think I'll just hop over to the bakery nearby my house to buy, easier.

  5. Perhaps you need to invest in one which is more reliable?

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger!

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

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...
