Bee Hive Buns


BEE HIVE BUNS (Roti Sarang Lebah)
Posted by MamaFaMi
Source : Lydia Honey via Izah


Ingredients :

Dough :

2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon instant dried yeast
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 cup plain yogurt at room temperature
1/4 cup cooking oil (I used Alif)
1/2 cup water (approximately)

Almond flakes
Pumpkin seeds

Method (my way) :

1. In the mixing bowl, add flour, instant dried yeast, salt, baking powder and sugar. Mix well.
2. Add in yogurt and cooking oil. On the mixer on low speed. Slowly add water. Increase the mixer speed and let it knead till a soft, elastic and shiny dough is formed.
3. Remove for the mixing bowl onto your working sheet. Round it up into a big ball and let the dough rest for 10 minutes.
4. Dough could be sticky. Rub your hands with some cooking oil when working with the dough.
5. Divide the dough into 16 small portions. Knead each into a ball shape. Place them evenly in 2, 6inch lightly greased baking tins.
6. Cover the baking tins with plastic wrap and let it proof until doubled in size.
7. Brush the top lightly with the mixture of 1 teaspoon milk powder and a bit of water. Sprinkle with almond flakes and pumpkin seeds.
8. Bake in a preheated oven at 180C and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Oven temperature may differ.
9. Once baked, remove from oven and let it cool.


BUTTERSCOTCH SAUCE :

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup whipping cream (you may use evaporated milk instead)
a pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
25g butter (I used Planta margarine)

Method (my way) :

1. Melt butter/margarine in a small heavy based pot on low heat.
2. Add in brown sugar and stir till sugar disolves and starts to bubble. Remove from heat.
3. Pour in the whipping cream and keep stirring. Be careful. Place the pot back on the stove.
4. Add vanilla and stir to mix well.
5. Remove from heat and ready to use.

Note :

1. Please make sure you have all the ingredients near you to avoid this sauce from getting burnt as sugar caramalizes very fast.
2. Use a long wooden ladle to stir the mixture to prevent your hands from getting burnt as well.

To serve :
Pour the sauce onto the baked buns and enjoy. I didn't pour all the sauce onto the buns as I don't want the buns to become soggy. I just pour it when I want to eat it.



Have a nice day!

Good day everyone! Yes, I slept late again. This time, I was aware of the time but I was so into 'digging' that I just let time pass by. I managed to retrieve another page of the the COOKIES THREAD. Alhamdulillah...

Well, to continue with yesterday's story, these are the other two things that I had made for my sister and her hubby. I used the recipe from the Roti Paun Lembut but added more sugar to it.

Beef Pepperoni and Olives Pizza

T.H.E R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S

Hello everyone. It is past 11pm now. I am totally exhausted now. Mentally and psychically. And I am so looking forward to jump on my bed right now. But since I’ve promised myself to upload an entry today, I mustn’t break my promise.

Why am I psychically tired? Well today, I cooked Asam Pedas for lunch and dinner. Fatin had whatsapp me in the morning, saying that she’s coming home this afternoon after her class, just to release some stress. She had asked dearest mom to cook for her Asam Pedas and bake a pizza. Hmmm.. now who is starting to be stressed? Hahaha… just kidding! So mom, happily went into the kitchen, totally forgetting about her plan to do ironing.

Firstly, I cooked for Mr Hubby, Asam Pedas Ikan Parang. Done with that, I started to cook Asam Pedas Ikan Tenggiri for Fatin. While waiting for the mixture to cook, I went out to bring in the laundry, not realising that I didn’t put the fire on low. Hmmm I think, all of you can surely guess what happened then right. Yeahh… it got burnt! I had to prepare the ingredients again. Oh ohhh… this time, I can’t find the tamarind. I am pretty sure I had a new packet unopened. I went through the cupboards but couldn’t find it… up to a stage, I said to myself, if that packet decided to show itself after this, I will send is straight to the bin! Hahahaha…. I had to walk to the shop and get a packet of tamarind. Today is just not my day I guess!

Fatin wanted to go to Giant to get some stuff to bring back to her apartment. But I was expecting the LG Technician to come and fix our refrigerator at 3pm. When he didn’t turn up after 4pm, I gave a call to his office. And the lady said, Mr Technician wrote in the schedule, “after 7pm”. So I told Fatin, once I’m done in the kitchen, we’ll go to Giant. Luckily we haven’t leave the house because Mr Technician came at 4.45pm. It seems, the fan’s motor is not working well and had to be replaced.

Now… the mentally exhausted part…

Hubby bought a new iMac for me to use because the laptop that I am using is quite old and it is showing the ‘ageing sign’. Hahahaha… Well, you know, when things are new, we need time to meddle around to get use to it. I don’t really have much time to sit around and meddle. So, every time he is not around, I will turn on my antique laptop and will turn it off after using, before he knew it. Yeah yeah… naughty me, I know! But today, since I was busy the whole day… I had forgotten to turn off the laptop and who has to go into the computer room??? Oh yes, Mr Hubby. He didn’t say much, just one short, direct question…. MAMA, YOU ARE NOT USING THE IMAC? And dear mama started to have shaky knees! Muahaha… serves her right!

Anyway, she’s not 100% naughty okay. This entry was drafted and posted using the iMac fully. But only Allah knows what a hard time I was having just now. Practise makes perfect though. I am pretty sure, I won’t take that long to get use to this fella… *wink*

Oh me oh my, and somebody said she is mentally and psychically tired, but here she is, writing her Grandmother Story! Hahaha… MamaFaMi will always be MamaFaMi…

Roti Paun Lembut - A KEEPER

T.H.E R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S

How should I feel, when I hear someone said that I have not been forgotten despite the VERY slow updates in my blog, the vanishing act that I've performed on FB world and the way I hide myself from the real world.. well frankly speaking, I'm trully touched. Trully trully trully....

It really touched my heart when I read what Kak Wan Nita of Fadelicious Cakes wrote when we were whatsapp-ing yesterday night. Anyway I will not reveal our conversation and will keep it to myself. Something that can perhaps boost my mood to update more often, In Shaa Allah...

To be frank, I've always have doubt about myself... about the things that I posted in my blogs... about the recipes that I've tried... Well, to me, I can't find anything fantastic in these blogs of mine. The only thing that I've always been proud of showing...hok aloh, cam riak je bunyi dia kan? Eh mama bukan riak ok.. bangga je sikit... tak salah kan? are the photos of my brownies. Hahahaha... and most of the time, it is the same recipe!! Kak Wan said, maybe it's my mindset! How can I reset? Huhuhu...

I'm taking this opportunity to thank all my visitors, followers (if there's any) and friends for all your support. In Shaa Allah MAMAFAMI's BLOG will stay 'alive', even if the owner is no longer in this world. If it is not much to ask, please recite Al-Fatihah for me whenever I cross your mind. Jazakallahu khairan.

Best Ever Light And Fluffy Dinner Rolls

T.H.E R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S

OMG OMG OMG!!! I must have done something REALLY GOOD to deserve this DOUBLE JOY when I opened my email, after 3 days letting my laptop on 'vacation'. I received 2 emails from my ex-schoolmates. Marina was my school mate since we were in kindergarden (did you realise that Marina ;)). And Hafiza my best friend when we were together in MGHS till form 3. I even chose Fiza's birthdate to deliver my daughter! I guess it is not too late to wish you HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY FIZ! Thanks to both of you for making my day! I am so happy!!!

Secondly, I had been naughty yesterday. I didn't do much except sit and read and cried and smiled and be on Cloud 9. Hubby went golfing early in the morning. I skipped my morning walk but I didn't get back to sleep. Instead I kept reading THE WHOLE DAY. The story just got better towards the end, and I just can't put down the book. But at 3 pm, I had to put it down. Been crying too much and I was pretty exhausted. So I grabbed the broom and started to sweep the house. Not enough with that, I mopped the house too! Took in the laundry and fold the clothes, then took a bath and yes, I was emotionally stabled by then. Continued reading till 8.30 pm when I finally reached the last page! Phew... Finally it is over! Thank you to AcikLana for her Perempuan Yang Paling Aku Cinta! I will post the photo of the book and the synopsis in my other blog. And since I have a big pile of clothes to iron, l will leave you with this recipe.

T.H.E R.E.C.I.P.E

My sister whatsapp-ed me this recipe and asked me to try it. The first time I tried with the original recipe of 1 1/2 cup water, it was quite messy and hard to handle. I can't adjust the water amount as I was using the breadmaker to do the kneading. The second time I made, I reduced the water amount to 1 1/4 cups and the dough is much easier to handle. But the taste remains. Thank you to Pat Kinnee and Mak Chu for the recipe.


BEST EVER LIGHT AND FLUFFY DINNER ROLLS
Posted by MamaFaMi
Source : Pat Kinnee


Ingredients :

4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
11g instant dried yeast
1 1/4 cups water
1 egg
1/3 cup softened butter or vegetable shortening (I used margarine)


Pat's method :

Sift together two cups of the flour with the sugar, and stir in the yeast. With mixer at low speed, blend shortening or butter into the flour mixture. Add the hot water (the hottest it comes from your tap) all at once, with mixer running. Add the egg, and continue mixing.
Add in the remaining two cups flour to make a soft dough.
(At this point, change mixer beaters for dough hooks and let the mixer knead the dough for about ten minutes and then put it into an oiled bowl to rise.)

OR YOU CAN DO IT THIS WAY.

Knead lightly on a floured board and shape into a ball. Put into an oiled bowl, cover with a towel, and allow to rise in a warm spot until doubled, about two hours. Punch dough down. At this point it can either be refrigerated or shaped in rolls or loaves and allowed to rise a second time until doubled. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven until barely brown.
May be frozen after baking and reheated to serve.


NOTE :

I used my bread maker to do the kneading job. As usual, place the liquidy ingredients first, then top it with the dry ingredients. Then the yeast. Start the breadmaker and when the dough is just combined, add in the margarine and leave the breadmaker to do it's job. All in, will take about 1 1/2 hour.
Remove the dough from the breadmaker and shape it into 20 small balls. Arrange in the lightly greased tray and let it prove for a while. Brush with milk powder and water mixture. Sprinkle with some sesame seeds. Bake at 200 C till golden brown. Remove from oven and brush with margarine.


Have a nice day!

Pandan Buns

T.H.E  R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S

Alhamdulillah I am still breathing and I am still in this world. Only that I don't have the time to sit infront of the laptop. I was out and about for almost a month. Too many things to settle until at times, when I think about it, I don't really know what I had done.

But frankly speaking, I am tired... mentally and physically! My oven had a good vacation too. I really hope that I can start baking again soon. The goodness about me not being able to be infront of my laptop is, I have less temptation to try out the recipes shared by others because I don't really know what's going on in the cyberworld now. Huhuhu... I think Allah is 'rewarding' me now for liking to waste my time when I was much younger. Now I feel like 24 hours is just not enough....

Coney Dog II

T.H.E R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S


"HEY MAKCIK!!!!"

"HEY NYONYA!!!! Kenapa you lari dari I? You simply cabut without saying goodbye!! 
Oppp... kejap.. kejap....Gong Xi Fa Cai eh to you and your family...
Okay... now can sambung marah you! Why you tak call before leaving Malaysia...."

...... etc etc etc and the conversation lasted for about half an hour. That was because my dear friend Bernice just arrived from Zambia a couple of hours before the family dinner during Chinese New Year eve. At least I still have a heart to let her rest. Ahahaha...

Actually I was soooooo excited and happy to be able to get in touch with Bernice again after she left Malaysia without saying goodbye about a year ago. Had been trying to get in touch with her to no avail. I knew Bernice when we were together in Malawi and since then, we had been in touch till last year. She told me, she lost her phonebook when her handbag was stolen before she left for Zambia.

"Okay Nyonya, your excuse is acceptable. After this, don't run away again okay!"

See how we addressed each other... Makcik and Nyonya! Hahaha.. When I was on the phone with her, I had to go upstairs to my room and close the door behind me or otherwise Mr Hubby will give me a weird kind of look... the look that says... are you fighting with Bernice? Ahahahaha....

Anyway, I hope after this we will stay in touch because I do treasure my friendship with all my friends.... F.R.A.N.C.E! (Friendship Remains And Never Can End!)

T.H.E R.E.C.I.P.E

This recipe was meant to be posted a day after I posted the BUN recipe but time was not on my side. I got carried away doing I don't really know what! Thousand apologies ya!

Anyway, with that bun, I made this Coney Dog for my kids' dinner. Why made the buns? Because I am just too lazy to go to the shop to get some. And why made Coney Dog? Because I was just too lazy to cook rice! So you can see, how LAZY I am nowadays. Oh Allah, have mercy on me!

Thank you to the delicious looking Coney Dog at Nuridah's Blog that lead me to Myresipi. Thank you Nuridah and Fida Daud for the yummy recipe.

Bun

T.H.E R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S

Hello everyone. I'm back. Sounds like I've been away to somewhere eh? The truth is, I am just at home during the long holidays for Chinese New Year. The only place that I went was to the driving range. Have I started playing golf? Oh no.... I was just there to accompany dear hubby and at the same time, enjoying reading my novel in peace... and the best part is, I can't fall asleep! Hahaha...

But when I've started on a book, I just can't put it down. Hence the silence in this space...

What am I reading at the moment? Cinta Tak Terucap by Imani Hatta.... can't wait to continue reading.... daa everyone......

40-Minute Hamburger Buns

T.H.E R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S

Had been sick the whole day yesterday. Down with headache! It was quite hot yesterday and I think it is a bit too much for my head. If only I have the gadget that Uncle Fester of Addam's Family has, it would be such a great help!

At times, when the throbbing is unbearable, this silly idea came into my mind. I would unscrew my head, scrape off all the headaches that are stuck to the skull, wash it clean and shine, wipe it dry and then only will I screw it back to it's place. Niceeee and clean... headache free! Hahahaha... dah macam hantu penanggal pulak bunyinya kan...ahahahaha... Who else have this kind of idea in their minds, leave a comment after this post... thank you... hahaha.... dah sengal dah ni.....mmm abaikan je, tak yah layan mama ni....

T.H.E R.E.C.I.P.E

Syahmi had to stay back in school after the second paper yesterday. Before dropping him off to school in the morning, I had asked him what he wanted for lunch. He said he wanted just burger and not rice. And I said ok. When I got home, oh oh... I just remembered that there is no burger buns at home. Huwaaa.... I doubt the shops infront of my house have burger buns and to drive all the way to the shop that sells, my headache is not allowing me to do so. Best solution I could think of is to bake my own burger buns. And yes... after a while, not baking bread, yesterday I made these lovely burger buns. Thank you to Taste of Home for sharing the recipe with us. It doesn't take long to prepare these buns. I made half the recipe and managed to get 5.

SWEET BUN RAISINS

T.H.E R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S

News up to date : Still working on my blood pressure reading, which I can say, not much improvement since that day. Plus so many things happened, that contributes to my failure in achieving a better reading. I am still trying and struggling at the same time.

What I've tried so far :

1. celery + green apples
2. Tamarind skin with hot water
4. A few suppliments
5. Reduce sodium intake (actually I don't use much salt in my cookings)
6. Kiwi

I think the best thing to do right now is not to think too much.... but will I be able to? Aja aja fighting mama!!!

Sweet Bun With Coconut Filling

T.H.E R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S

Dear Mak Teh

I hope this find you well. Thank you for your kind email, asking about my whereabouts and my MIA from the cyberworld. 

As usual, I am busy with the endless housework and my duty as a driver. In addition to that, my internet connection is not so good for the last couple of days. Being an impatient kind of person, I just don't have the heart to waste my time waiting. So yes, I opted for not switching on the laptop hence the silence.

Thank you. 

 Yours trully, 
MamaFaMi

Sausage Rolls (Ayin)

Though time wasn't on my side yesterday, I still did these rolls just because I can't resist Ayin's bread photos. When the dough was ready, I didn't shape it right away because I had to rush to Bangi to fetch my mom, accompanied by Kak Ana. So I had to chuck the dough together with the bread maker pan into the fridge. By the time I got back after 2 hours, the dough had proved again in the fridge! Hahaha... now this is what I called, triple proving! Hish marah cikgu-cikgu roti sebab memandai-mandai je buat method sendiri... sket baik roti mama tak kerepot sangat!!!!! Ahahaha...

Thank you Ayin for sharing this lovely recipe with us. My son kept coming for more... *wink*

BEEF PEPPERONI PIZZA


BEEF PEPPERONI PIZZA
Posted by MamaFaMi
Source : Chef Poh via Kak Rusnah


Ingredients (Dough) :

600g plain white flour (best to use good strong baker's flour - higher in protein)
4 teaspoons instant dried yeast
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
400ml ± water (enough to make a firm dough)

Method :
1. Mix one tablespoon of flour, the sugar and yeast with a couple of tablespoons of tepid water and allow to stand for 20 minutes. This will activate the yeast.
2. In a large bowl mix flour, one tablespoon of olive oil and salt.
3. Add yeast mixture and enough water to make up a firm dough and mix well.
4. Cover bowl with damp tea towel and leave in a warm place for an hour.
5. Remove dough to a floured workbench and knead for five or six minutes.
6. Divide dough into two, knead each into a loaf shape, put in oiled bread tin, cover with damp tea towel and leave in a warm place for an hour.
7. Before baking, sprinkle surface of each loaf with flour.
8. Bake in moderately hot oven (200°C) for about 45 minutes, or until top is golden brown and bottom is light brown. Tap the bottom, it should sound hollow.

Ingredients (Topping) :

Kimball's Tradional Spagetti Sauce
Enough beef pepperoni
Mozarella cheese


My way of preparing the pizza :

I used my Bread Maker to prepare the dough. When the dough is ready, roll to 1/4 inch thick. Prick with a fork all over the rolled dough. Spread enough spagetti sauce, arrange the pepperoni and grate enough mozarella cheese. Bake.

You can add more ingredients to the topping but since my kids prefer it plain, so this was how I had prepared the pizza.


Have a nice day!
