basic white bread - kenwood's recipe

assalamu'alaikum wrm wbt

it was a sad ending for my cinnamon bubble buns
i made a mistake leaving it to proof for so long in BM
the dough was bubbling all the way in the BM for 2hours!!
i totally forgot about it upon watching a ceramah by ustaz don
and then trying my very best.. (or isit my very worst?)
(am the one with technical background but always very-blurry at everything technical!)
to download the link and post in my other blog

so, i washed the bread pan and made this bread instead.
basic white bread  - 500g loaf  (very cute loaf!)
  • 1 egg + enough water to make 245ml
  • 1tbs vegetable oil
  • 350g bread flour
  • 1tsp salt
  • 2tsp sugar
  • 1 1/2tsp  active dried yeast
  1. dump everything in BM accordingly and select program for white bread.
  2. done!

    eve's pudding

    assalamu'alaikum wrm wbt

    eve's pudding is an english (england) recipe
    which i found in le cordon bleu's dessert book
    finally, after 3weeks.. my oversize overripe pear is khalas!

    source: le cordon bleu's dessert
    • 2-3 cooking apples, peel and slice  <-- i used pear
    • lemon juice
    • 100g castor sugar to sprinkle on the apple <-- i use 1Tbs only
    • 50g unsalted butter
    • 50g castor sugar <-- i use brown sugar
    • 1/2tsp vanilla
    • 1 egg
    • 87.5g self raising flour <-- alamak! i used 100g! no wonder the texture is as hard as a rock! kwang-kwang-kwang.. :p 

    rocky topping thanks to unintentionally extra flours :p

    1. Pre-heat the oven to 160C. Lightly butter a 1 litre baking dish. Set aside.
    2. Peel, core and slice the apples thinly. Place them into a bowl and mix together with the lemon juice and sugar. Pour this mixture into the buttered baking dish
    3. Cream the butter together with the caster sugar, until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg. mixing it in well. Fold in the flour lightly and then spread the resulting batter over top of the apples in the baking dish.
    4. Bake for 1hr to 1 1/4hr until the apples are soft and the sponge is firm and nicely browned.
    the book suggested few variations:
    • use tropical fruits such as pineapple or papaya, replace 2Tbs flour with 2Tbs dessicated coconut
    • use dark soft fruits such as blackberry or blackcurrant, add lemon juice to sponge mixture
    • use peaches, add few drops of rosewater to sponge mixture
    this is how eve's pudding should turn out - smooth top!

    orange pull apart bread

    assalamu'alaikum wrm wbt.

    for those who is adverse to cinnamon,
    do try out this orange version of CPAB
    it is oh-so-awesome! 
    i just can't stop pulling & tearing it apart
    and savour every moment i sink my teeth into this OPAB :D
    alhamdulillah.. thank you Allah for this moment of joy
    and the joy of seeing how friends love it as much as i do
    subhanallah.. priceless!
    yumminess overload!
    the original name is lemon scented pull apart cake
    but i used orange zest instead of lemon - hence the change of name ;)

    For the sweet yeast dough:
    • About 2 3/4 cups (12 1/4 ounces) all-purpose flour
    • 1/4 cup (1 3/4 ounces) granulated sugar
    • 2 1/4 teaspoons (1 envelope) instant yeast
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/3 cup (2 1/2 fluid ounces) whole milk
    • 2 ounces unsalted butter
    • 1/4 cup (2 fluid ounces) water
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
    • 2 large eggs , at room temperature

    For the lemon paste filling:
    • 1/2 cup (3 1/2 ounces) granulated sugar
    • 3 tablespoons finely grated lemon zest (3 lemons) <-- non. my lemons are all skinless
    • 1 tablespoon finely grated orange zest <-- i grate 1 very large orange skin 
    • 2 ounces unsalted butter , melted
    For the tangy cream cheese icing:
    • 3 ounces cream cheese , softened
    • 1/3 cup (1 1/4 ounces) powdered sugar
    • 1 tablespoon whole milk
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    • 1/4 teaspoon lemon extract

    you will appear again in my kitchen. soon! insyaallah.

    Directions: - same as CPAB expect for the filling part and this one has cream cheese icing!
    1. Stir together 2 cups (9 ounces) of the flour, the sugar, the yeast, and the salt in the bowl of a stand mixer; set aside. In a small saucepan, heat the milk and butter over low heat just until the butter is melted. Remove from the heat, add the water, and set aside until warm (120 to 130°F [49 to 54°C]), about 1 minute. Add the vanilla extract.
    2. Pour the milk mixture over the flour-yeast mixture and, using a rubber spatula, mix until the dry ingredients are evenly moistened. Attach the bowl to the mixer, and fit the mixer with the paddle attachment. With the mixer on low speed, add the eggs, one at a time, mixing after each addition just until incorporated. Stop the mixer, add 1/2 cup (2 1/4 ounces) of the remaining flour, and resume mixing on low speed until the dough is smooth, 30 to 45 seconds. Add 2 more tablespoons flour and mix on medium speed until the dough is smooth, soft, and slightly sticky, about 45 seconds.
    3. Sprinkle a work surface with 1 tablespoon flour and center the dough on the flour. Knead gently until smooth and no longer sticky, about 1 minute, adding an additional 1 to 2 tablespoons flour only if necessary to lessen the stickiness. Place the dough in a large bowl, cover the bowl securely with plastic wrap, and let the dough rise in a warm place (about 70°F [21°C]) until doubled in size, 45 to 60 minutes. Press the dough gently with a fingertip. If the indentation remains, the dough is ready for the next step. While the dough is rising, make the filling.
    Make the lemon paste filling
    4. In a small bowl, mix together the sugar and the lemon and orange zests. Set the sandy-wet mixture nearby (the sugar draws out moisture from the zests to create the consistency).
    Make the coffee cake/ bread.
    5. Center a rack in the oven and preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Lightly butter a 9-by-5-by-3-inch loaf pan. Or, lightly coat the pan with nonstick spray.
    6. Gently deflate the dough. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the dough into a 20-by-12-inch rectangle. Using a pastry brush spread the melted butter generously over the dough. Cut the dough crosswise into 5 strips, each about 12 by 4 inches. (A pizza cutter is helpful here.) Sprinkle 1 1/2 tablespoons of the zest-sugar mixture over one of the buttered rectangles. Top with a second rectangle and sprinkle it with 1 1/2 tablespoons of the zest-sugar mixture. Repeat with the remaining dough rectangles and zest-sugar mixture, ending with a stack of 5 rectangles. Work carefully when adding the crumbly zest filling, or it will fall off when you have to lift the stacked pastry later.
    7. Slice the stack crosswise through the 5 layers to create 6 equal strips, each about 4 by 2 inches. Fit these layered strips into the prepared loaf pan, cut edges up and side by side. (While there is plenty of space on either side of the 6 strips widthwise in the pan, fitting the strips lengthwise is tight. But that’s fine because the spaces between the dough and the sides of the pan fill in during baking.) Loosely cover the pan with plastic wrap and let the dough rise in a warm place (70 °F [21°C]) until puffy and almost doubled in size, 30 to 50 minutes. Press the dough gently with a fingertip. If the indentation remains, the dough is ready for baking.
    8. Bake the coffee cake until the top is golden brown, 30 to 35 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool in the pan for 10 to 15 minutes.
    Make the tangy cream cheese icing
    9. In a medium bowl, using a rubber spatula, vigorously mix the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Beat in the milk and lemon juice until the mixture is creamy and smooth.
    10. To remove the coffee cake from the pan, tilt and rotate the pan while gently tapping it on a counter to release the cake sides. Invert a wire rack on top of the coffee cake, invert the cake onto the rack, and carefully lift off the pan. Invert another rack on top, invert the cake so it is right side up, and remove the original rack.
    11. Slip a sheet of waxed paper under the rack to catch any drips from the icing. Using a pastry brush, coat the top of the warm cake with the icing to glaze it.
    12. Serve the coffee cake warm or at room temperature. To serve, you can pull apart the layers, or you can cut the cake into 1-inch-thick slices on a slight diagonal with a long, serrated knife. If you decide to cut the cake, don’t attempt to cut it until it is almost completely cool.

    orange yogurt bundt cake

    assalamu'alaikum wrm wbt.

    let us recite selawat before we start
    allahumma solli 'ala muhammad wa'ala aali muhammad
    kama sollaita'ala ibraheem wa'ala aali ibraheem
    innaka hameedun majeed
    allahumma baarik 'ala muhammad wa'ala aali muhammad
    kama barakta'ala ibraheem wa'ala aali ibraheem
    innaka hameedun majeed

    alhamdulillahi rabbil 'alameen
    thank you Allah for giving us opportunity to breath and live for another day
    thank you Allah for giving us beautiful earth and sky for us to live by

    my boy wanted to bring cake for maulidurrasul celebration
    they held it today, in the school.
    he does not want a chocolate cake
    he prefers orange cake over chocolate cake
    but he is one hantu-chocolate just like his ummi!
    how come he does not like chocolate cake??
    and he wanted it to be baked in bundt pan
    so i searched for orange bundt cake
    and settled on this recipe

    source: poppytalk
    • 2 cups flour 
    • 1 Tbs baking powder
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • 2 eggs 
    • 3/4 c sugar
    • zest of 2 Seville oranges
    • juice of 2 Seville oranges + enough plain yogurt to measure 1 cup
    • 1/3 cup olive oil <-- i used canola
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract <-- nope. didnt put this.
    Citrus syrup
    •  juice of 2 Seville oranges
    •  4 T sugar
    1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Butter and flour your bundt pan and set aside.
    2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
    3. In another bowl, combine the sugar and the orange zest together. Blend well so that the oils in the zest release into the sugar and becomes fragrant. Beat the eggs into the sugar until well combined and stir in the yogurt, orange juice, vanilla and olive oil. Add in flour mixture and stir until everything is all mixed.
    4. Pour batter into the bundt pan, smoothing the tops with a spatula. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until the tops are golden and a cake tester inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before inverting onto a wire rack.
    5. While cake is cooling, mix together the sugar and the orange juice in a small saucepan until the sugar melts. Using a pastry brush, generously brush the orange syrup over the cake. Poke the cake a few times with a skewer if need be to help soak in the syrup, because the wetter this cake gets with the orange syrup the better it will be.

    insyaallah pics will be uploaded later in the evening.

    apple and strawberry oat crumble

    assalamu'alaikum wrm wbt

    i feel a sudden urge to eat fruit crumble
    ok. i lied. i have both fruits: apple & strawberry in fridge
    both are crying for help to save them from ageing
    but oh my butter.. where have they gone???
    there are less than 3/4cups of butter (abt 180gm)
    and i found loads of oats that is pass due date
    ting! thats when the oat crumble idea came.

    scrummy + healthy = happy :)

    source: onceuponachef  (i made half of below recipe)
    For Topping
    • 2 cups rolled oats
    • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
    • 1⅓ cups light brown sugar, packed
    • ½ teaspoon salt
    • ¾ cup (1½ sticks) unsalted butter, melted
    For Fruit Filling
    • 8 large baking apples, peeled, cored and sliced ¼-inch thick
    • 2 cups (8 ounces) cranberries, fresh or frozen <- i used fresh strawberries
    • 1⅓ cups granulated sugar <-- i reduced sugar to 1/3C for half recipe
    • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
    • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Butter a 3-quart baking dish.
    2. To make the topping, mix the oats, flour, brown sugar and salt together in a bowl. Stir in the melted butter, then press the topping together with your hands to form small clumps. Put the topping in the freezer while you assemble the filling.
    3. To make the fruit filling, toss the apples, cranberries, sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon together in a large bowl. Transfer the filling to the prepared pan and spread it out, pressing the fruit down into the corners.
    4. Press the oat crumble evenly over the fruit, then bake for 60-70 minutes, or until the crumble is lightly golden and the filling is bubbling up in the corners. Cool for about 20 minutes to temper the heat before serving, then top with vanilla ice cream or sweetened whipped cream.
    Storage: This crumble is best served the day it is made, but any leftovers can be wrapped in plastic wrap and kept at room temperature for 2 to 3 days. Reheat in a 300 degree oven for 10-15 minutes, until warm.

      cinnamon swirl buttermilk pound cake - tish boyle's recipe

      assalamu'alaikum wrm wbt.

      ever since shirley @kokken69 posted it in her blog..
      i've been dreaming of this cake
      imagining how am i going to do it - sort of exercising the steps in my mind
      ok. its a little bit overboard since its only a pound cake
      nobody can go wrong making pound cake, i suppose.
      but then, when i saw sis rima posted it. aduyai..
      i feel like running back home from the office
      and bake this cake there & then!
      i finally made this for my department meeting
      (yup! i need a reason to bake)

      moist + gebu + lemak merdu - everything u asked for in a cake!

      Cinnamon Streusel Swirl
      • 1/2 cup (60g)             All purpose flour
      • 1/3 cup (72g)             Firmly packed light brown sugar
      • 1/4 tsp                        Ground Cinnamon
      • Pinch of salt
      • 3 tbsp(42g)                Unsalted butter melted
      Buttermilk Pound Cake
      • 2 cups (242g)            All purpose flour
      • 1/2 cup (57g)            Cake flour
      • 1 tsp                          Baking powder
      • 1/4tsp                        Baking soda
      • 1/4 tsp                       Salt
      • 1/8 tsp                       Ground cardamom
      • 1cup (227g)              Unsalted butter, softened
      • 2 cups (400g)            Castor sugar (I used 340g)
      • 3 large                       Eggs
      • 2 tsp                          Vanilla Extract
      • 1 tsp                          Finely grated orange zest <-- i used lemon zest.
      • 1cup (240ml)            Butter Milk

      the best pound cake i ever made. sungguh! tak tipu!

      1. Preheat oven to 170C / 325F. If using a bundt pan, grease the inside of a 10inch bundt pan with butter  and dust it with flour. I used a loaf pan and lined it with baking paper.

      2. In a small bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients of the Cinnamon swirl. Add the melted butter and stir until blended and crumbly.

      3. Sift together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cardamom into a medium bowl. Whisk to combine and set aside.

      4. Using a paddle attachment, cream butter for 2 mins at medium speed in a mixer until very creamy. (2mins) Gradually add in the sugar and continue beating at medium high speed until pale and light. (4mins)

      5. At medium speed, add in eggs one at a time and mix to incorporate eggs well.

      6. Add vanilla extract and orange zest. Add in the flour in 3 portions, alternating it with milk (2 additions). Mix until just combined.

      7. Scrape half of the batter into the prepared pan and smooth it into an even layer. Sprinkle the streusel mixture evenly over the batter. Scrape the remaining batter on top and smooth it into an even layer.

      8. Bake the cake for 65 to 75mins, until the cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean.

      9. Cool the cake for 15 mins before turing out the cake to cool completely.

      u complete me.

      utk kek yg sedap sila guna butter yg sedap. hehe.. sah2 la kan..? :p
      butter yg paling sedap utk buat cake to me so far is SCS.. tapi mahalnya tak ampun!

      and pls.. don't opt out the ground cardamom (buah pelaga) - that is one of the reason this pound cake is different from others. combined with the fresh grated lemon/ orange zest.. it tastes so exotic & dramatic! (ayat yg sgt over.)

      apple yeast sugar tart

      assalamu'alaikum wrm wbt

      apple yeast sugar tart ni sebijik macam roti yg taruk apple kat atas
      ada sahabat usrah kata macam potato bread
      does not fit the tart name except for using tart pan..
      alahai.. siapalah saya nak mempertikaikan resepi yg dicedok??
      yg pasti ramai yg kenyang dengan apple tart yg lembut ni. alhamdulillah...

      sumber: technicolorkitchen
      • 1 ¾ cups (245g) all purpose flour, sifted
      • pinch of salt
      • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
      • 1 teaspoon instant yeast
      • 1 egg
      • ½ cup (120ml) warm whole milk
      • 2 tablespoons (28g) softened unsalted butter
      • 2-3 eating apples – I used Gala apples
      • 1/3 cup (67g) demerara sugar <-- i used brown sugar
      • ½ cup (120ml) thick cream*

      1. Place flour, salt, sugar and yeast into a bowl. Whisk egg with milk and mix into flour mixture. Work in butter and knead to a smooth, thick batter – I used my Kitchen Aid with the hook attachment. Place in a buttered bowl and turn to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and leave to rise in a draught-free place for 30 minutes. 
      2. Knock back dough, then press it into a 22cm buttered pie plate or loose-bottomed flan pan, cover with plastic and allow to recover for 30 minutes (it will have puffed slightly).
      3. Preheat oven to 225°C/437°F. 
      4. Peel apples, cored them and cut into eighths. Press apple slices into the dough, and sprinkle with the demerara sugar. Place pie plate/flan pan on a baking sheet. 
      5. Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 200°C/395°F. 
      6. Spoon cream over apples and bake for 20 minutes. The top should be slightly caramelized and the tart light and spongy. Eat warm.
      * I used heavy cream and whipped it to soft peaks before pouring

      assalamu'alaikum wrm wbt.

      kali ni "turn" anak dara pulak bawak buah tangan kesekolah
      banana bread jadi pilihan sebab ada pisang yg bertaburan
      cik abe beli sebelum kami pergi bercuti..
      balik dari bercuti pisang jatuh tergolek satu demi satu..
      ngam-ngam ada 3 biji ~ 1 1/2cwn utk ikut resepi yang dah di"pin" kan
      (sedang mengalami pinsomnia tahap sederhana :p)

      • 2 cups all-purpose flour
      • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
      • 1/2 teaspoon salt
      • 1 cup sugar <-- i reduced to 3/4 cup
      • 1/4 cup butter, softened  ~ about 57g
      • 1 1/2 cups mashed ripe banana (about 3 bananas)
      • 1/2 cup egg substitute <-- equals to 2 eggs
      • 1/3 cup plain low-fat yogurt
      • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
      • Cooking spray
      1. Preheat oven to 350°.
      2. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt, stirring with a whisk.
      3. Place sugar and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended (about 1 minute). Add banana, egg substitute, and yogurt; beat until blended. Add flour mixture; beat at low speed just until moist.
      4. Place chocolate chips in a medium microwave-safe bowl, and microwave at HIGH 1 minute or until almost melted, stirring until smooth. Cool slightly. <-- i prefer to double boil my chocolate.
      5. Add 1 cup batter to chocolate, stirring until well combined. Spoon chocolate batter alternately with plain batter into an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Swirl batters together using a knife.
      6. Bake at 350° for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack.

      kak insyirah took the whole loaf to school..
      ngam2 je utk the kids + teacher faizah.
      hope they like it :)

      grilled eggplant wraps

      assalamu'alaikum wrm wbt.

      saya dah siapkan menu dinner utk seminggu
      supaya tak kelamkabut pikir nak masak apa petang nanti
      kebiasaannya ada saja ucapan berbaur seperti:
      "muaz nak spaghetti, taknak nasi", "man taknak ayam, nak kari ikan";
      bila dah ada menu yg dipersetujui bersama.. siapa pun tak banyak cerita
      tapi bila menu yg dah sedia ada tak diikut atas sebab2 kelaparan tak tertahan
      ummi depa mula jadi tak keruan.. kalau masak jugak takdak sapa yg nak makan
      lagipula cik abe pun dah pesan.. "tak payah masak nasik!"
      maka episod pencarian resepi kembali lagi..
      bezanya kali ni, healthy recipe ;)
      sekadar mengalas perut di malam hari..

      telur tak masuk resepi sebab utk sikecik only ;)

      resepi adaptasi dari
      • 4 keping roti tortilla
      • sebiji terung panjang, potong serong <-- terung dimakan 2org dewasa sahaja. sila lebihkan terung kalau suka.
      • 6 biji tomato cherry <-- dibelah 2
      • sedikit minyak zaitun dan garam
      • sedikit mozarella cheese
      • 2Tbs mayonaise
      • salad lettuce
      1. panaskan oven pada kedudukan grill, suhu 190C
      2. sapu minyak zaitun pada terung dan sprinkle garam. grill terung bersama tomato cherry selama 5minit. terbalikkan menggunakan sepit/ spatula. tabur cheese mozarella (pada sebelah bahagian terung dah cukup. kalau letak kedua-dua belah cheese akan melekat pada bekas)  dan teruskan grill sehingga cheese cair ~ lebihkurang 3-4minit.
      3. panaskan roti tortilla dalam microwave selama 30-45saat atau boleh juga guna oven: balut dalam aluminium foil dan grill selama 2-3minit.
      4. sapu roti tortilla dengan mayonaise dan tabur bahan2 lain kedalam roti dan bungkus/ roll & serve :) 
      terasa nikmat bila dapat ikut saranan Nabi Muhammad s.a.w:
      makan sebelum lapar, berhenti sebelum kenyang.

      disini ada cara2 nak buat homemade tortilla
      inti/ filling boleh dipelbagaikan.. kebiasaannya letak cooked shredded chicken.
      kalau nak dimelayukan, letak inti karipap pun boleh ;)
