Hi Jennifer! Thanks! Will order once we finish our Christmas bounty :) Kaya toast sounds great! I must try this one day...and I have heard of that type of coffee and I am itching to try it as I love both coffee AND condensed milk :) Thanks for the info on the restaurant! Merry Christmas to you too!

you may order through ---here! hahaha usually by email...tanjentan@gmail.com =)

well kaya toast is just thinly sliced brown bread w/ the "kaya" spread and some butter. the kaya spreadlooks a bit yellowish and its taste is similar to that of our "matamis na bao" (a.k.a. coco jam) but less sweet. there is this place I frequent at tomas morato--kopi roti! they serve kaya toast ther w/ excellent kopi--coffee w/ condensed milk! ---yummmmm---this reminds me of vietnamese style coffee.. pls try. do you like coffee?? ...oh my that is my greatest love you see =) merry christmas to you!

2005-12-19T15:39:00.000+08:00

Hi Chichajo,
It'll be my pleasure to share what I learned and experienced making bread over the years.
One tip that saved me aggravation with bread texture: I put water (or other liquid) in the bowl with salt, sugar if used, egg if used and I whisk to blend.
Then I add half of the flour the recipe calls for (I use a kitchenaid but if you do by hand, you can mix in this first addition of flour with a wire whisk). Then I add instant yeast (make sure it's fresh by checking the expiratin date on the packaging, I keep mine in the freezer at all times) then mix again, then add flour by half a cup at a time until you are satisfayed with the texture of the dough (at some point of course you drop the whisk and go ahead with hands for kneading).

An other tip I use when I make "american" bread, I add the room temperature butter by tablespoon at a time after the dough is kneaded and has reached a satisfactory texture. The dough will separate when you add the butter, keep kneading until it comes together again then add the following tablespoon of butter. Of course this technique makes more "muscle" work if you make your bread by hand. It's easier for kitchenaids owners. Incorporating the butter this way makes for a delicious bread with a perfect texture.
My children don't like the harder crust of homemade bread, so I cover the bread with a thick kitchen towel immediately upon it is removed from the oven. I remove the towel when the bread is warm and the crust it tender and soft.
Never cut a bread which is out of the oven less than 10 minutes ago. Even if it's hard to do so, wait for it to rest at least 10 to 15 minutes.

My recipe I use the most:
For 2 loaves of bread
2.5 cups warm water
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 egg
2 teaspoons instant quick rising yeast
6 to 7 cups flour (white or whole wheat or a mix of different flours)
1/4 to 1/2 cup (to taste) butter

I hope this will be of some help.

Hi Pasion! Thanks for dropping by...saw your Cottage Bread and it looks good! Glad to find a kindred soul out there :)

Hi Dexie! It's fun really...and like everything, if it doesn't turn out, there's always tomorrow (think Scarlett O'Hara) :)

Thanks Boo_licious! It's really not scary at all :) Quite fun and earthy actually ;)

You're definitely courageous. I hsven't found my own courage yet to make my own bread. I always drool over my MIL's breadmaker when I visit her. Someday I will follow your footsteps :)

Hi Zoubida! Thanks for stopping by and for the nice comments :) I'd love to get tips from a regular bread maker like yourself! I agree with you...it's 100% rewarding AND comforting :)



Congratulations and bravo! Your first bread looks ...

2005-12-16T12:40:00.000+08:00

Congratulations and bravo! Your first bread looks really good. You should have seen my first... The dough went to the trash bin presto!

I make my own bread every other day and I buy bread only in case of emmergency, i.e. unexpected guests or if I'm near an artisanal french bakery and I want to treat myself and my walking food vaccums (read: my 3 sons) with a crème de la crème, state of the art french traditional bread.

I wish you great success in your experiment and hope you'll be able to set up a good, solid routine of regular bread-making. It's so rewarding and terribly comforting to eat home made bread.

Hi Sailu! Thanks for dropping by! :)

Hi Mona! Thanks! Maybe I should be asking your dad for some pointers :)

Thanks Nic! Your encouragement means a lot...I have been checking out your blog for pointers, you've got such yummy yeast bread recipes! :)

Hi Tanvi! Yes, yey for her for putting bread within my reach...hehe :) Good luck with your batch!

Hi Fran! Thanks for such sweet comments! Much appreciated here :) The smell is wonderful no?

Your bread looks absolutely perfect! There is nothing beter than the smell of bread baking. I don't bake bread as much as I would like but think I would do it more often if the results were like yours! I love your posts.

Good for you girlfriend! Awesome pictures and great-looking bread. Very impressed. I've only made my own bread once and it was too dense for me..my dad's a huge breadmaker I keep meaning to take some lessons from him:) Maybe I'll have to turn to you!

Joey,first time commenting in here..found you thru Paz's blog..must say that experimental method for baking bread has floored me.Thanks for sharing..:)

2005-12-15T20:28:00.000+08:00

Hi Angelika! Thanks...it is exciting :) You should definitely start your own "experiments". It's so wonderful to smell and touch and taste...

Hi Mila! Thank you! It really is relaxing, for me at least. "Take a day, bake some bread"...I like that :) A good book to read during rising time and you are set!

Thanks Wysgal! I like Nigella too...definitely agree with what she said about cooking and eating...which is why she is so believable I guess...coz she looks like she really enjoys every morsel :) So how was the book? Have been tempted to buy it...

Hi Lera! Nigella says that the potato water is the best tip she can give for making good white bread "with a light crumb that lasts longer before going stale"...

Hi Tattum! Thanks! I did use active dried yeast (despite Nigella saying not to) because it was all I had, but things turned out a-ok...I hope to read a post about your bread soon! :)

Hi Lori! Thanks so much :) I am so happy to be free of the store-bought-bread chains! Woohoo!

2005-12-15T20:18:00.000+08:00

Welcome to the world of your own bread, Joey! Store bought will never taste as good again. :) An awesome first attempt. Much better than mine was, which looked so awkward I was tempted to take a photo of it. :p

2005-12-15T16:40:00.000+08:00

Joey! That's GREAT!!! I had the same idea last week, but something went wrong, the dough didn't rise. so the bread was good tasting, but too concentrated, and thick...Did you use dry yeast? because I think that that might have been the problem...
But my congratulations!! Yours looks soooo good!! I must try again. Besos
