And I’m back to business! I was going to blog about my Taiwan trip first but got reminded by someone that “你正经的事不做，blog 什么 travel?” Oh! So now blogging about recipes and food is “正经的事”. Ok!
The first thing I wanted to do when I got back from Taiwan was explore the Panasonic bread maker. It can make basic bread, bread rolls (that are to be finished in the oven), cake, dumpling skin and even chocolate! Apart from this polo bread loaf, I also made a Cheese and White Chocolate Cake in the afternoon. I declare today “Bread Maker Day”!
Before I left for Taiwan, I spied my aunt checking the breadmaker out on a few occasions. You see, she loves bread and all kinds of buns imaginable. Her favourite shops? Four Leaves, Bread Talk, Provence and Crystal Jade Bakery.
My aunt has a gastric problem and always needs to eat bread. And at 75, a breadmaker is new to her as it is to me. Today afternoon’s project is my second go at using a BM, to very happy results I must say!
Ok, let’s get on with it!
The bread turned out very soft, the raisins evenly distributed, the cookie topping crunchy, buttery and delicious.
This attempt turned out so much better than my first attempt. I am looking forward to getting to know the breadmaker better. Look out for my Cheese & White Chocolate Cake recipe coming up! And very soon, I’m gonna teach the aunt how to bake her own bread. How thrilled will she be? Very!
