White Milk Bread Recipe (with Bread Maker)

“White Milk Bread for baby”

I know my handmade bread from scratch is tasty, but if I were to make a handmade loaf every other day for my 1-year old baby, it’s nearly impossible due to my busy routines as well as having this precious one clinched on me whenever he is awake.

Effortless baking, and for time saving purpose, I decided to get myself an electronic bread maker which will help to do everything, after placing the ingredients in.

No particular reason for choosing this brand, it was simply because Best Denki had an offer deal for this. Original price was S$179, and I got it there at only $139.

Chicken Mayo Sandwich

“Great and easy sandwiches for your breakfast, lunch and even for a light dinner choice.”

Easy and flavorful. I did this for my girl for her recess, and for hubby and myself as packed breakfast. This is also great on a picnic or for an impromptu luncheon.

This sandwich I’ve made was the usual chicken Mayo with thick white bread. However, you may wish to make it more healthy to eat and lighter in calorie so that you will feel free to eat even during dieting period, use a low-fat/ light Mayonnaise which may be found off the shelves, at Cold Storage or NTUC Fairprice Finest (at Japanese product cell).

Poached Egg

“How to poach a perfect egg? Here are the steps to obtain good egg poaching result.. And, I poach egg to make sandwich with cheese for breakfast.”

Eating poached egg is better than sunny-side-up egg, in a way, as you don’t need to add oil to cook the egg. I personally preferred poached egg for healthier diet choice as well as less hassle of cooking it. What you need is just a pot of water and vinegar to do the job without worries of resulting an oily stove or table top after cooking (smile).

Mini Cinnamon Rolls and Sweet Cinnamon Swirl Loaf

“Soft, fluffy and moist homemade Cinnamon swirl bread, so likeable by everyone!”

Break making is easy. You don’t require master’s skills to have a freshly baked loaf at home.

I read a few blogs about making cinnamon bread. So, I tried baking it on my own, too. I baked both the sweet cinnamon rolls as well as cinnamon swirl loaf, just to test which way yields better textured bread.

The result is varied depends on your liking and serving occasion. For me, I loved the swirl loaf as it was overall softer even the top crust, while it will be more presentable to have it made into small rolls, for serving guests and as gift to friends.
