1st attempt here. In my first attempt, the yeast was depleted due to over proofing, resulting in a flat dough. That was with Option 5 (whole meal bread).

Croissants Attempt #2 – failed!

😦 First attempt here: Croissants Attempt #1 – failed! Recap: My problem in my first attempt was ‘breaking butter’, which means instead of a smooth layer of butter, I got them in chunks all over the dough, and most of them cut through the poor dough. I found out the reason behind that, and I have…

Paul Hollywood’s Belgian Chocolate Brownie Mix – Tried and tested

I have been following Paul Hollywood years ago, when the Great British Bake Off (GBBO) was still fairly new.

Today, I tried the ‘Soft Bread’ baking programme of the Panasonic SD-P104 Breadmaker. Before this, I have used the ‘Bread’ and ‘Stuffed Bread’ programmes, both yielding rather dry bread with thick and tough crust. I was hoping to get a really soft bread comparable to oven-baked bread with this option. The ‘Soft Bread’ option takes 4…

Panasonic SD-P104 Breadmaker TangZhong bread

I have used many tang zhong bread recipes for oven-baked bread and they never failed me once, so I thought I should try it in my breadmaker. Unfortunately, the result was well under my expectations. It was nothing like my oven-baked light and fluffy tang zhong bread!! 😡 This is the tang zhong bread baked using…

This was supposed to be a beautiful orange butter cake, but for some reason, it turned out to be a disaster. Don’t be fooled by its…
