Bread is a staple food in our family and it’s something that I can take it as a meal. Decide to make some hotdog bun for nephew when he stayed over this weekend, choose hotdog cos kids will sure love it. I added some Italian Herbs to some and I thought they compliment well with the hotdog too. I only use half of the dough and freeze the other half for tomorrow’s baking, so it will be fresh for Sunday consumption. Colleagues was also asking if they will have bread for breakfast this Monday!? hahaha … have decided it will be hotdog sweet buns and cheese/sugar sweet buns for them, but I think I need to make the buns a little bigger!
Nothing is more than satisfactory than seeing nephew holding the hotdog bun with his tiny fingers and biting into it!
Wanted to try how this Pandan Kaya Cake taste like so have been reading up on the tips to make it, the process sound scary and complicating. Use Phoon Huat super sponge cake mix, it was pretty easy but the cake is a little dry. The more difficult part is cooking the Kaya, somehow I din manage to get the gluey, thick texture after boiling it for a while so I added more Hoon Kueh powder which din help much either. It only begin to thicken after I remove from the fire so after stiring for a while to cool the mixture, I carefully pour it to the base layer within the cake ring. *at least the cake ring is put to another use!* Add another layer of cake and finally more kaya. Chil it in the fridge for a few hours before cutting. It’s a breeze to remove the cake from the cake ring, I just slowly pull out from the top, for a moment I was worried that the kaya will leak from the bottom or the cake will fall apart!
Well, I din like the taste of the cake thou the rest of the family feel it’s nice. The coconut and kaya tasta is pretty strong. Probably won’t make it again.
