Fruit And Nuts Bread Using Breadmaker

BREAD-LESS...  No bread in the house and lazy to go out to buy and hence, the baking of bread began. 

This time I tweaked the recipe a bit....  Tesco breadmaker does not require egg in making fruit bread but I added in one.  It also does not need oil but I added in 2 tablespoon of melted butter and after that, I kept my fingers crossed.   Fruits and nuts are 30gm and I added 60gm cos I like each mouthful to be filled with more nuts.... Yes, I am greedier this time....
Press on #5 for sweet bread....
After 2.55 hours.... 
Medium crust.... next time I should press the "Light" crust and see how it looks... 
The top sides are a bit hard and crusty.. 
But inside is soft.... 
See my greediness?
I put dried blueberries, almond flakes, pine nuts and walnuts.... 
For each bite, I get to eat something different... 
Best to be eaten within the sameday or two the most...
The last piece was finished on the 3rd day and it was more dry and hard by then...
Maybe next time I put in a smaller portion of the ingredients...

Simple Steps To Apom Balik aka Tai Kau Meen

HOW TO OVERCOME MY CRAVINGS..... the only way is to DIM.... Do-It-Myself... LOL... and that was exactly what I did yesterday.  My cravings for the Peanut Pancake aka Tai Kau Meen in Cantonese and Apom Balik in Malay was put into trial test, thanks to a lady who posted up her recipe on Facebook.  I quickly screenshot the recipe and gave it a try yesterday...

Ingredients: 1 cup multi-purpose flour
2 tbsp fine sugar (I used brown sugar)
1 egg
1/2 tsp yeast
1/2 baking soda
1 cup water (I used 3/4 cup)
Mix all the ingredients and leave for 1/2 hour....

Meanwhile, I crushed my Peanut Candy cookies which were given by my neighbour...
I cut a small portion of SCS butter and a scoop of peanut butter.... 
Into the pan the batter goes... low fire... 
First round, I poured in a thin batter.... 
Best is to wait for the batter to be drier or cooked longer first
before putting in the peanuts and butter.... 
Trial try.... a bit too soft... so I must heat the batter longer.... 
Took a bite... hmmmm... not bad leh... 
Second round of batter, I poured in more to get a thicker pancake.... 
Browner this time.... just like those sold outside... LOL....
I got it!!
Actually it works either way, depending on how we wanted it... 
Thick or thin, they taste as good... 
One pancake cut into three pieces.... so total I have 6 for this recipe....
More than enough for us....
Next round, I will add in corn... how about that?
LOL...

Noodles And Salad

MEALS OF THE DAY.... Homecooked and outside food....
My neighbour bought Koayteow goreng for me... 
Long time I did not eat this... so I finished it all.... and I have to skip lunch.. for once!
For dinner, I dumped all these in my bowl of Maggi noodles...
I did not use the packet since I have "ikan bilis" soup....
A very fulfilling meal again.... 
And while eating half-way, my neighbour called me.... 
She passed over this salad consisting of apples, cucumber, carrot and "suit lin"
For sauce, she used plum sauce and apricot jam...
So nice that I asked for her recipe... 
And I will do this when my kids come home!
