It’s my first visit to Delicious. I have heard many good comments about their dessert and on top of that they offer a wide variety of cakes to satisfy a sweet tooth person like me. Anyway, HJ and myself had their Traditional English Afternoon Tea. The portion is actually meant for 3 people or 4.

It comes in a triple tier – Warm Scones with Preserves & Fresh Cream, Assortment of Finger Sandwiches & Duck Confit in Filo Pastry, Strawberry Chocolate Dip & Hand-rolled Chocolate Truffles, Rosemary & Cheese Cookies, Choice of any one cake on display and choice of any two cups of tea (all for only RM59.90).

They all look huge and tempting.

The cosy environment with blue and white colour theme which reminds me of White Christmas. Tee hee hee.

We were soooooooo super sugar loaded that day!

Thanks HJ for the sweetest craving satisfaction 🙂

Vegetable Pau

November 11, 2008

Last Sunday, Mommy and I made vegetable pau at home. She stir-fried the vegetable (for the filling) while I was having my Sunday afternoon nap. The nice aroma from the kitchen awaken me. I went to help her by weighing and putting all the dough ingredients into the bread machine. It was my first attempt and I didn’t know it was so easy. Thanks to our bread machine for doing all the kneading and proving. The pau was good and Dad loves it too! *grins*

Vegetable pau

and the inside… yum!

Pizza and Zopf

Almanzo in action

Zopf (the name is derived from the shape of the bread which literally means “braid”)

Buns

August 20, 2008

We learned to make bread from scratch last week and this week, we used the bread machine to make buns. It’s so much easier. Chef Wai taught us the rolling, folding, twisting and cutting dough techniques. He’s so fast! I wasn’t able to capture any photos of the techniques. Anyway, there are various ways of doing it depending on how you want the shape of your buns to be. All of us made 4 buns each; coconut bun, sausage bun, mayonnaise bun and mexico bun. Let me show you what I’ve made.

This is my coconut bun. The shape is not suppose to be like this. I have cut it at the wrong side but I still find it cute. Haha.

It’s suppose to be like this (Cher Wai’s version)

My good-try-cutting-and-twisting sausage bun. I only managed to make 4 holes instead of 6 and the sausage sank inward.

Chef Wai’s where the sausage is evenly divided.

Now, this is my mayonnaise bun. I’ve rolled the dough to long and as a result…

Chef Wai’s version again. Look more presentable and appetizing.

Lastly, our perfect Mexico bun! Haha.

Bread

August 15, 2008

I like bread. It’s my staple food instead of rice. Years back, Mommy used to make bread at home but I wasn’t interested in it. I knew she put all the ingredients into the bread maker and after a while, it formed a dough. Then we have to wait for the dough to prove. It makes me feel that making bread is complicated.

Anyway, I was indeed grateful that Bruce thought us how to make white loaf and wholemeal bread today. We did everything with our bare hands and frankly, it was a tedious job! Kneading is the hard part in making bread. A good judgement is required to know when dough is sufficiently kneaded. That is why a bread maker comes in handy if you like making bread.

Club Sandwiches

Club sandwich is a type of sandwich which uses toasted bread and most often served as a double-decker. It is usually cut into quarters and held together by toothpicks or cocktail sticks.
