Nephew was around for this weekend so it gave me the perfect excuse to try out the Disney Cookies cutters. The little boy enjoyed the cookies as usual, din forget to bring back and also a good time playing a little dough I given to him. He was very happy when he manage to “cut & stamp” the piglet and said aloud “Piglet!”.
Aside from the cookies, I also baked another loaf of Hokkaido Milk Loaf, miss how soft and fluffy the bread is. Added some chocolate chips but they were soon melted and I had a light brown loaf instead. Wanted to try out the jam function of the breadmaker and with ready ingredients on hand, I made Kaya! Should have made a white loaf to go with the Kaya instead. More on the Kaya making session, not like wat some of the floggers said to dump everything inside, do beat the eggs, sugar and coconut milk first so that you won’t have “unbroken” egg whites/yolks streaks in the custard. The breadmaker blade will give the custard a stir every few seconds so that save you the trouble of stiring. The whole process take 1 1/2 hrs. I find it a little watery so may try to add a little corn or plain flour next time, it should help to set the custard better. I vividly remember the custard will set slightly more after a night refrigeration.
Won’t be able to do much baking next week, probably another loaf of bread and hopefully a cake for Mothers Day. Lots of errands to run – collect passport, buy some necessities, pack luggage and ready to fly off on Monday! Won’t be back till Sunday night and hopefully I won’t lug back too many baking tools.
