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...

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
