Baking Bread With Tesco Breakmaker

BREAD MODE....

My Khind breadmaker has given up on me, the paddle just wouldn't turn and that happened before the MCO was implemented.  Instead of buying a new one, I borrowed my sister's Tesco breadmaker, I remember she telling me that she stops using it after one try.  Her bread turned out hard, I do not know why.... so I took the risk and tried it myself two days ago.  I googled for the recipe, following the orderly steps as mentioned.  The only change I made is that I used remaining bread flour in my fridge and mixed it with plain flour. 

The difference between my Khind and Tesco breadmaker is the sizes.  Khind loaf size is just nice for one person whereas Tesco one is enough for a family of 4.  Anyway..... I can always keep the remaining pieces in the fridge, two pieces per day is more than enough for me.
280ml water
2 tbsp oil
2 tbsp brown sugar
420gm flour
1tbsp milk powder (I didn't put cos I don't have that)
pinch of salt
1tsp yeast is the last ingredient to put in... 
After 3 hours... 
The crust is a bit hard when it is hot.... 
But softer after cooling down..... 
Soft inside though... 
8 pieces in one loaf.... 
For my breakfast this morning.... 
One piece with Kaya and one with peanut butter... 
Very filling... 
Next time I will try putting in dried cranberries, raisins and nuts!

  1. Congratulations! You have made good research and baked a perfect loaf. When you add those dried fruits, they will add moisture and light fragrance to your next bread.

  2. It was the craze at one time, cheap then. Everyone in the family bought and was making bread every day...and then it fizzled out. I wonder if they still have their breadmakers and whether they can still be used. At a time like this, I regret not buying one myself - would be nice to make one's own bread, no need to go out and buy.

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...
