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.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
