Homemade Raisins Almonds Flakes Bun

BUN BAKING MODE... Since there was no more bread in the house and I was too lazy to go out to buy, I googled for easy bun recipe on youtube.  I had a hard time choosing the recipe I wanted, there were so many good cooks online, I must say!  

In the end I settled for this raisin bun, I halved the portion of the ingredients for 10 buns.  For me, five buns will do but somehow ended up with 9 buns!  How did that happen?  LOL... 

Here is the recipe for Raisin buns:  I halved all the ingredients shown
3 cups all purpose flour (375gm)
2 1/2 teaspoon instant dry yeast (8gm)
2 tablespoon sugar (25gm)
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup lukewarm milk (180ml)
1 large egg
3 tablespoon butter, melted (45gm)
1/2 cup raisins (70gm)
Added in almond flakes and walnuts
Egg wash: 1 egg + 1 tbsp of water

Method:
1.  In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, salt and yeast
2.  Add milk, melted butter and eggs
3.  Mix together until a soft and sticky dough is formed.  Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface, knead the dough for 4-5 min.  Add the raisins and mix until combined.  Place dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover with plastic and let it rest for 1 hour or until dough doubled in size.
4.  Divide the dough into 10 pieces
5.  Place on baking tray and cover with a kitchen towel until it rise doubled in size
6.  Heat oven at 180 degrees and bake for 20 minutes
7.  Brush the buns with egg wash (I didn't do any of that)

Sticky dough after mixing all ingredients
I knead with a spatula...
Doubled in size after an hour....
I took the dough out and knead for another 5 minutes or so....
Even with half the ingredients, I could get 9 buns.... LOL...
Into the oven for 20 minutes...
Time's up...

Buns are so nice to eat when fresh from oven!
Soft and fluffy....
But frankly speaking, the next day the buns are not as soft.... 
That is why I like to make smaller portions so that
they could be finished on the same day or the day after...
I will make this again...
This time I will add in more nuts and raisins!
LOL...

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
