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.

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

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...
