Donut Lela

Human changes. They don't normally stay the same throughout their life span. We need changes, to bring more colors, more excitements so that life won't be dull and boring. But hopefully we change for the best not otherwise. I am one of them who had transformed from someone SO QUIET to someone who is so bubbly and so talkative. Those who knew me personally will surely be surprised to know that I had once been SO QUIET. They will surely have question marks in their heads..... boleh percaya ke mama ni SENYAP orangnya???...hahaha..... Well, that was who I am before I started doing my tiny consultancy agency back then in 1989.

My relatives used to say, it's like I have loads of diamonds in my mouth that I dare not open it. Fearing that all the diamonds will fall out of my mouth. And during semester breaks, my next door neighbours do not realize of my presence at home until I came out to throw the trash. And I had been in the house for almost a week! See...that's how quiet I am! Even my clients can see the difference. They said it themselves..."Ini amoi, dulu talak manyiak cakap. Sikalang sudah manyiak pandai cakap!" (Translation : This lady used to be so quiet before but now she talks too much!) Hahaha... I'm not offended but I take it as a nice compliment! Because I think positively... to me, that's a good change.. at least to my clients. They no longer feel like they are talking to the tree or to the wall! Hahahahahahaha.....

Yesterday, Syahmi's best friend Iddin, came to join him for a Bahasa Malaysia tuition class at our house. Since that was the first time Iddin's joining, so his mom came along. That was the very first time I met Saerah. They are our neighbour across the playground field. So near yet so far huh! Once the guys were settled with the tuition teacher, Saerah and me went into the kitchen as I was in the middle of experimenting a donut recipe. The way we chatted (of course, tried hard to lower the volume) made Cikgu Sherry's mind filled with a big question mark that she just had to ask us...."awak dua orang ni dah lama kenal ke?" (translation : Have you known each other for a long time?). Frankly speaking, that was just AN HOUR of knowing that she's Saerah and I am Syahmi's mom! Hahahahaha... After a while, we went out to Lea Oven's shop. I just want to introduce her to Lea's shop in case she wants to get any baking stuffs or maybe order some cakes in future. There, we were asked the same question by Lea...have you guys known each other long time? Hahahahaha.... See, how bubbly I can be!!! Anyway, I had a lovely day yesterday and it's really nice knowing you Sae. Next time we'll galavant somewhere huh.... *wink* *wink*

Recipe to share is this Donut recipe that I had kidnapped from Jun's Blog. Thanks Jun (psst I really love the song LOVE STRUCK on your blog. Makes me feel like wanting to do some aerobics! About time too I guess! Hahahaha) and Lela for sharing this recipe with us. Made the whole recipe and managed to distribute to 4 houses excluded mine! Allow me to translate it and repost it here so that many others can give it a try ya..... Thank you lovely ladies.....


Ingredients :

2 big potatoes ~ peeled, cut to small pieces, boiled and mashed
3/4 cup lukewarm milk
2 egg yolks
4 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence (I added)
500g all purpose flour
1 tablespoon instant dried yeast
3 tablespoons margarine

Method :

1. Pour the lukewarm milk into the Bread Maker pan. Add in mashed potato, egg yolks, sugar and vanilla essence.
2. Top it with flour. Sprinkle the instant dried yeast on top.
3. Set the Bread Maker to Dough. Once the dough is just incorporated, add in margarine and allow the Bread Maker to finish it's process which takes about 1 1/2 hour including proving.
4. Remove from the pan, punch down to let out air from the doh. Roll to the thickness of 1 cm and cut using the donut cutter.
5. Arrange on a tray lined with plastic for easy handling. Leave for half an hour, covered.
6. Fry till golden brown. Coat with castor sugar or dip in melted cooking chocolate and sprinkle with toppings of your choice.
