Potato Rolls


My oh my... had been busy as a bee...rasanya mama lagi busy sikit dari bee tu tau... So many things happened that needs my immediate action. Alhamdulillah I managed to get everything done right on time because like I've always said, I work best under pressure! Yes, that is totally not healthy, but I've never learnt my lesson. Why am I so stubborn. Oh ALLAH help me please!

For the past few weeks, I slept earlier than my norm. I'm out of this world before the clock strikes midnight. I am a good girl right! How can I not be? I am totally drained out by then! Even Ultraman needs to recharge his power! Haha...

So that explains my disappearance from the cyberworld...not from this world just yet okay. *wink*


Last week, my sweet neighbour Saerah passed me some rolls that she had freshly baked. Imagine this situation ya... your tummy is hungry and someone just happened to send you some freshly, sweet smelling rolls, right at your doorstep... how would you react? Yes... like a piranha! Hahaha.... Her rolls was lovely and I had asked for the recipe which she gladly emailed me. Can't bake it straight away as the recipe calls for some potato flakes which I don't have. So the next few days, I went to the bakery shop to get the flakes and was just too excited to try out the recipe.

Last Tuesday I set to work, with the intention to try out Saerah's recipe. Without checking her recipe, I just followed the recipe that I had copied down in my jot book that has potato flakes in it. After placing all the ingredients in the breadmaker pan, I started wondering, is this Saerah's recipe? Went on my email to check... goodness me, it wasn't. But I can't just smply throw the ingredients away. So I just carried on and that was not a wrong choice to make. The rolls are nice and soft. Many thanks to Foodbuzz and Kristen of Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker for sharing the recipe. I made half the recipe.

Ingredients :

1 cup milk
2 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter
1 cup warm water
1 envelope yeast (or 2 1/2 Tbsp)
2 beaten eggs
1 cup instant potato flakes
4 1/2-5 cups flour

Method :

Heat milk, sugar, salt, butter and water in a microwavable bowl until butter melts. Let cool slightly. Add eggs and stir. Add the yeast and let a sponge form. Add the potatoes and then the flour. Knead about 8 minutes. Put in a greased bowl, cover and let double (about 1 hour). Punch down dough and divide into two halves. Make 12 balls out of each half and place in greased 9 inch pie pans. Cover and let rise 1/2 hour. Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until a deep golden brown. Brush with butter as soon as you remove them from the oven.

Note :

I used my breadmaker to do the job!

Have a nice day everyone!

    lil' world. big heart. :
    Waalaikumussalam Ain. Untuk mencuba resepi roti selain dari yang di dalam buku manufacture tu, senang aje sebenarnya. Mula-mula sekali, Ain tuangkan ingredients liquid dulu, contohnya air dan fresh milk. Kemudian, masukkan gula dan garam dan kalau ada bread softener, masukkan sekali. Kemudian baru taburkan tepung, susu tepung dan segala bahan kering termasuklah yeast. On kan bread maker dan biarkan ianya menguli sehingga bahan-bahan tu bersatu, then only masukkan margarine or butter. Lepas tu biarkan sahaja sehingga selesai doh diuli dan dinaikkan. Senang aje kan?

  12. mamafami,
    saya dah email. harap balas tq.
