Condensed Milk Bread

My hobby is baking and gardening . I love experimenting bread every weekend. Its spring here in Australia and that means I am baking bread again. In winter its hard to proof. But still I used the warm oven  for proofing. So you can see more bread soon.

This bread sounds hard but very simple to make. Its worth putting the effort to bake this beautiful bread at least once. The bread is so light and soft. I prefer this just like the milk bread. So tasty with butter and jam. 🙂 Even you can use with savouries too.

This stays out two days with out a problem and also last about 4 days in fridge. Can freeze up to three months too. To get the softer crust add butter on top of the bread. Leave the bread covered with a clean tea towel about 5 minutes. You can get a glaze as well as a softer crust this way.

If you want to spoil yourself with more condensed milk add several spoons on to a slice of bread ………………. 😀   I did…..Yum…

Crazy Dough Bread

Crazy dough bread is for those who doesn’t want to do bread for kneading longer.  Crazy dough is for those who are not willing to bother about making a proper bread. That’s my honest idea. 🙂  Its so simple and easy to make. The bread is a bit heavy than normal bread. But really worth to know this in case of emergency when you run out of bread.

Those who want to make these beauties from plain flour add the same amount of flour with two teaspoon full baking powder. This bread comes out nice and fluffy and also in several minutes.

Add your own creativity to make this in different ways and enjoy making them.

Happy Baking

Bread rolls are so easy to make with different styles of dough. I made these beautiful bread rolls from a recipe one of my friends passed to me from her grand mothers. Its so nice and beautiful in texture as well as stays in fridge for longer than a normal bread roll.

Chicken And Leek Savoury Bread.

Chicken and leek bread rolls are a soft and moist bread that you can keep for 3 days in fridge or freeze in sandwich bags. So simple and easy to make too. As I always do baking I got more than 100 requests to do something savoury and this is for all who requested and like doing baking.

As this comes as a bread but divided too this saves time of making individual buns. I love to do baking but these days its winter in Australia and it takes too long to prove. But I can’t say no to those who asked me to do something different. You can save this as a finger food too for a party.

Sandwich Basics to do Your Own Cafe Style.

Gather everything close to you. if you are a daily sandwich user try preparing everything in small containers already prepared. Try putting absorbent papers under the tomatoes to drain excess liquid. Same can apply with cucumber. Avocado goes brown. Always cut them fresh.  Lettuce needs to wash well to remove the mud off. Use a salad spinner to take the excess water out. Store well.

Spreads vary from person to person. You can use butter , margarine or can make with out any spread too. but the butter or margarine always keep it stopping becoming wet making a barrier on the bread. And also helps to give flavour as well as a crunchier crust when you toast them.

Meat always you choice. Sliced meat suits better than pulled meat in a sandwich. One thing is its easier to stack them. Even you can use the left overs from the roast.

As sandwich condiments you can use mayo, mustard, , pickles, relish, pesto  etc………

Using the bread for a sandwich is up to you. I like dark breads or a mixer of white and dark together.You can stack the sandwich with several layers too. When  I choose I always try to go for a better loaf or I make my own.  Hope now you have a better Idea. So lets start…………..

01-P1070572
Gather everything closer to you. make sure to to put them back to the fridge ASAP after making the sandwich.
02-P1070573
Choose the bread to your liking.   lay on a chopping board.
03-P1070574
Spread the butter or margarine evenly to cover all the ends too.
04-P1070575
After put the meat  on the buttered layer . (This way it prevents leaking vegetable juices all over the bread.
05-P1070576
Add cheese if you are adding any.
06-P1070577
Start adding vegetables.
07-P1070578
If you find tomatoes wet use a paper towel to dry a bit unless you are consuming the same time.
08-P1070579
spread the condiments.
09-P1070580
Add avocados. You can use canned beetroot too. But make sure to dry them.
10-P1070581
Finish with lettuce. That way both sides are covered well.
12-P1070583
Cover with the other slice of bread. Press well.
14-P1070585
Cut in to two. Or serve as it is or toast it if you like a toasties.  make sure spread butter or margarine on the out side of the bread to get a nice colour.

Yeasted Flat bread

Making these little flat breads are so easy and simple. You can do these in oven too. To do it in oven need to use a pizza stone. Then you can do these beautiful breads in oven.

The air bubbles start forming up when you start cooking them. Sometimes the bubbles can be huge. Still you need to cook both sides. or you can put under the grill to make it brown.

Enjoy with curry , a filling  or even with jam and butter.
