Yudane Bread Fail!

Yes, Yudane Bread can fail! I adapted the Yudane recipe I made before here to make a coconut cranberry loaf bread. Everything was fine until I added the incompletely defrosted shredded coconut and plumped cranberries! Ingredients as usual in the bread pan… All was good up to this point. Beautiful soft dough… When it beeped, I…

^Looks nice? You’re about to find out! So I have some wholemeal flour left and I wanted to try a new 100% wholemeal bread recipe. Found this online and it looked good and fairly simple, so I decided to give it a try. It uses a starter dough, which has to be refrigerated overnight (supposed…

65ºC Tang Zhong Wholemeal Bread 汤种全麦吐司 2nd attempt

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. I first known him from watching a series of short documentaries about different types of bread, and I thought he was smashingly charismatic. His knowledge about the humble bread amazed me, it’s no surprise he comes from…

Croissants Attempt #1 – failed!

Was it successful though? Keep on reading 😉 I followed the recipe on WeekendBakery website as it has the most…

Panasonic SD-P104: Chocolate Walnut Bread on ‘Soft Bread’ programme

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…

Orange earthquake cake

LOL….. So, there was an earthquake with a magnitude of 5.1 on the Richter scale in my vintage oven… and here is the aftermath….. #wewillrebuild Hence, I named it, the earthquake cake. 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…
