Pais Jagung Sabah

Rudy bought another batch of delicious jagung susu, and we still had a few left when Kak’mbang suggested that we make pais jagung, a sweet steamed corn-based kuih wrapped in cornhusks. What an idea!

Crescia al Formaggio

Tons of Parmesan in the freezer for me to clear out. Best place to get ideas for good bread recipes is of course King Arthur Flour, and this Crescia al Formaggio came up quite highly rated.

This was a rather low-touch bread which didn’t need much work, but required quite some patience due to its long resting time. The recipe is chock full of parmesan, with a bit of white pepper for some heat.

Savory Cheese Bread

Recipes from the King Arthur Flour website often call for cheese powder and I got quite curious about it, so I bought some from the recent Lazada 8.8. sale. I bought extra to get Free Shipping, so I was very eager to start using up this new ingredient.

This Savory Cheese Bread recipe from King Arthur Flour website was originally written for a Zojirushi breadmaker, and I’ve rewritten it for use in my Kenwood BM450 breadmaker.

Cheese Buns

I’ve had that block of Kraft Cheddar in the fridge for ages now. I think I bought it to use for a different recipe, but never got around to do it.

Fast forward to today and I really want to clear out ingredients from the fridge ASAP, so here I picked a super quick bread roll recipe from Texanerin Baking, rewritten and adjusted for my Kenwood BM450 breadmaker.

Breadmaker Wu Pao Chun Champion Toast Bread

I’m on quite a few Facebook groups related to breadmaking and breadmaker usage, and quite often I see folks posting their Wu Pao Chun bread. I was wondering what this was all about, and many times those posts didn’t come with the recipe.

One day Rudy shared with me the link to the recipe by The Domestic Goddess Wannabe, written specifically for the breadmaker. I adjusted the recipe to suit my Kenwood BM450, both for a 500 and 750g loaf.

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Anyone who has seen the movie Chef starring Jon Favreau would probably remember the scene with the absolutely decadent-looking grilled cheese sandwich. In the early days after watching the film, I practically fantasized about how gooey the cheese might be, and what the different cheeses might taste like.

At long last, after quite a few years, I stumbled upon the recipe for this amazing looking grilled cheese sandwich. My oh my did this match everything I ever dreamed of.

Momo (Nepali Dumplings)

So I was talking to my colleagues at work about food and dumplings and yummy stuff to eat, when Shu mentioned momos. Momos are Nepalese dumplings, she said, and you eat them with chutney.

To me, that sounded simply wonderful. I have always loved dumplings, and I also thoroughly enjoy making them especially the pleating part which I find most therapeutic. However, the dumplings I’m used to have always been the East Asian variety (mandu, wonton, gyoza), and I’ve tried Filipino molo which isn’t too different either. Now here I was, presented with a more exotic variety of dumpling, filled with flavorful spices and herbs like cumin and coriander and cilantro, and I simply couldn’t wait to experience it.

Breadmaker Kayu Keramat

Growing up in Terengganu, one of my favorite afternoon tea snacks was kayu keramat. Literally translated as ‘sacred stick’ (don’t ask), it is basically a lightly sweet fried dough. A local doughnut, so to speak.
