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?

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
