TAFTAN BREAD RECIPE

Taftan Bread Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Taftan or taftoon  is a  leavened bread  hailed from Persia,  baked in a clay oven.

I  discover this flatbread while watching a cookery show on television,   I  did some research. found out that it  could be made without yeast with just water. milk or yogurt salt and whole wheat flour.   My Taftan Bread  recipe adapted  from various sources use yeast, milk and oil.

The dough was really sticky and hard to shape.  You can add some flour by a tablespoon but not too much otherwise it turns really hard.

On a floured board, roll out each ball into a circle.  thin it out  so the edges are thicker. Prick the dough  with fork leaving the sides.

I can't believe how much better this  Taftan Bread  tastes than takeaway flatbread, even my hubby wanted more!.

TAPIOCA PANCAKE aka LEMPENG UBI RECIPE

Tapioca Pancake aka Lempeng Ubi @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A traditional pancake made with fresh grated tapioca and coconut.

It has been over  10 years since  I have eaten this Tapioca Pancake served by my late mum.

Those days, we have to prepare the tapioca from scratch.  Peeling and grating was the first step for making this pancake.  Today grated tapioca was readily available in the market.

Using a non stick pan eliminated  the need to use excessive oil when frying  them.

Tapioca Pancake can be eaten with sugar or dip in spicy gravy.   Sugar could be added while mixing the batter for a sweet version. So I leave it to you to decide how you want to enjoy them.

BANANA SCONES RECIPE

Banana Scones @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

An egg free  Banana Scones made with regular pantry items and really easy to make.

I have 2 bananas lying on my kitchen counter and need to do something before it turns bad.

After so long, I did not make any scone so  this Banana Scones  are the best option.

The dough was bit sticky but still  manageable.  Am able to shape it into 7 in round onto floured baking pan with my hand.  Place the dough in the middle of the pan, pat on top and run your hand along the edges to give it a nice round shape to the thickness of 3/4 in.

My Banana Scones take exactly  20 minutes to bake but it may vary depending type of oven you are using, so adjust accordingly.

BAKED EGGLESS CHURROS RECIPE

Baked Eggless Churros Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Am reluctant to try out this Baked Eggless Churros recipe for the reason, I don't have star nozzle to pipe the dough. That all change when I saw my friend made it with daisy cookies (biskut semperit) mould.

This really encourage me to start making it.  The downside of using this method, you can only pipe a shorter ones but that was okay for me.

Tried a baked version instead of deep frying.  Whipped up a simple chocolate sauce to go along with Baked Eggless Churros.

I must say, they are perfect pairing, made me forget about my diet. In case you don't have evaporated milk, replace it with fresh cream. Strain the chocolate sauce if you are not sifting the cocoa powder for a smooth sauce without any lumps.

EGGLESS BASBOUSA / SEMOLINA CAKE RECIPE

Eggless Basbousa/Semolina Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A famous dessert originating from Middle East, made of semolina and drenched in sugar syrup.

Am looking for Eggless Basbousa / Eggless Semolina Cake Recipe over the net.  There are various recipes for making it, some used coconut or  ground almond and richer one with heavy dose of butter and eggs.

After checking so many recipes,  decided to give this recipe a try. This Eggless Basbousa / Semolina Cake recipe uses no eggs and least sugar for the  syrup.

Used a whisk to cream the butter and sugar together.  Need not beat until fluffy, just until well combined.

This Eggless Basbousa / Eggless Semolina Cake does not have a cake like batter but rather a thick mass of dough.

Am running short of whole almonds so I used almond flakes for topping.

We enjoyed a slightly chewy texture imparted by semolina, sticky and moistness by the syrup.  It is much better the day after since the lemon flavored syrup  will be completely absorbed.  We plan to make this wonderful Eggless Basbousa/Eggless Semolina Cake again for our family gathering.

VEGAN HOMEMADE DOUGHNUTS

Vegan Homemade Doughnuts Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A vegan and yeast free doughnuts for our tea time treat this week.   Found this recipe on Facebook.  It looks easy and quick to make.

These Vegan Homemade Doughnuts use vegan margarine and soy milk without yeast.   If you're not a vegan, you can use butter and fresh milk.

Original recipe calls for deep frying but I opt for baking instead.  Also did not coat them with sugar as we wanted a savory version.

The dough of these  Vegan Homemade Doughnuts are really sticky,  I added a tablespoon of flour to make it easier to shape by forming the dough into a ball, flatten it and make a hole with your floured finger or else roll the dough and use a doughnut cutter.

The doughnuts turned out very tasty despite they don't rise much as compared with  deep fried ones.  I think we need to add another teaspoon of baking powder if it is baked (original uses 1 teaspoon).

Vegan Homemade Doughnuts Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


VARIATIONS

Liquid can be replaced for fruit juice, you can even add chopped dried fruit.

For savory bread, add tomato juice instead of soy milk,  sun dried tomato may be added to the dough

Brush the dough with olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt  and oregano for foccacia flavor.

BEST EVER EGGLESS COCOA BROWNIES

Best Ever Eggless Cocoa Brownies Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

This Best Ever  Eggless Cocoa Brownies is a quick and easy recipe to satisfy those sweet craving. Made with cocoa powder, vegetable oil, condensed milk and water.

Purposely reduce the sugar since am adding half a cup of condensed milk but you could add more if you want.  Have added the coconut oil but other vegetable oil works too.  For a richer taste, opt for melted butter instead of oil.

The process is about as easy as you can get.  Combine dry ingredients with  oil, condensed milk, water and mix.  Add  in chocolate chips, stir and spoon batter into muffin pan.

Besides baking in muffin pan, a square pan of 8 x 8 in is a great alternative but adjust the baking time accordingly.

These Best Ever Eggless Cocoa Brownies were  fantastic!  They are so good, am planning to bake another batch tomorrow.

BLUEBERRY SCONES RECIPE

Blueberry Scones Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


I can never get tired of quick and  yummy food for breakfast or tea time treat. It has been some time, I baked scones for my family. They are so versatile since you can customize  the add-ins.

Blueberry Scones  prep is similar as making a pie where you cut in butter, using your fingertips  until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  You can make scones using a food processor but made by hand is much lighter. The secret to  good scones are not to handle them too much before baking.

Divided them into 2,  patted one portion onto baking sheet into a round shape and cut into 8 wedges while the balance  I cut  rounds with 2 in cutter. .

These buttery Blueberry Scones are tender, fluffy  and sweet enough to eat on its own, no jam required, but this is entirely up to you..

HEALTHY OATMEAL BANANA COOKIES

Healthy Oatmeal Banana Cookies Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


Quiet some time, I have baked cookies for my family.   I love easy and delicious recipes and this Healthy Oatmeal Banana Cookies fall into this category. These are egg free and use a minimal amount of melted butter.

In fact, it uses one bowl so you save time washing up and the best part, just throw in all ingredients in a mixing bowl then mix until well incorporated.

Easily shape the mixture into 1 in ball then flatten slightly.  Besides raisin, opt for cranberries, apricot or mix in sesame / sunflower seeds or almond/walnut.   The possibilities are endless.  If you're not keen to roll the cookies, you can spoon the dough into a greased baking sheet.  Press with a metal spoon to smooth top.  After baking, cut it into bars.

Healthy Oatmeal Banana Cookies turned  fantastic, soft center and not so sweet which I love. If you need it sweeter, add more sugar.  Bake them longer  for crunchier cookies.

EASY APPLE COBBLER RECIPE

Easy Apple Cobbler Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


After making Cake Fruit Yogurt Parfait,  Mini Pumpkin Tarts and Fruity Jello , am looking for a new dessert to try.  I stumbled upon a fruit cobbler recipe that is much easier to put together  since you don't need any rolling pin to shape the dough.  The dough can be flatten by hand about the size of your palm to cover the fruit.

Fruit cobbler is a very versatile dessert,  as you can vary the fruit used,  based on the availability of seasonal fruits or any fruit you have in hand.  You can use frozen fruits  as well. That's the beauty thing about cobbler.

I have never made an apple cobbler before, this was a simplest recipe to make.  Easy Apple Cobbler consists of 2 parts, the fruit and the topping.  Peel, core and slice the apple before adding lemon juice, sugar and cornstarch.

Prepare the topping by adding the flour, sugar with melted butter.  In no time, your buttery ball of dough is ready to use.

Made a mistake by closing the gaps after overlapping the dough so my  Easy Apple Cobbler turns out almost smooth  anyway the end result was divine!

PIZZA DOUGH APPLE HAND PIES

Pizza Dough Apple Hand Pies Recipe @ http://treatntrick.blogspot.com


These  Pizza  Dough Apple Hand Pies  are  made from yeast free pizza dough.  I follow this  recipe with slight changes.  Omitted dry milk and use evaporated milk instead.

The crust is less buttery since we are using 5 tablespoon of melted butter/oil when compared with regular pie crust.   This suits for those looking for lightened up pie crust that was flavorful,  easy to handle and bake beautifully.

Cut  the apple into a half inch  cubes then coat  with the rest of the ingredients for the filling. You will get some liquid after some time, only scoop the apple but leave behind the liquid  when stuffing the hand pies.

Any variety of apple such as red delicious,  gala or  macintosh  can be used instead of granny smith. Another tip is to bake these Pizza Dough Apple Hand Pies on the lowest rack of the oven for 10 minutes,  This trick  ensures a nicely cooked, never soggy bottom.

EGGLESS LIGHT BANANA CAKE

Eggless light Banana Cake Recipe @ http://treatntrick.blogspot.com

This Eggless Light Banana cake is incredibly easy to make, egg free and very flexible. If you're using self rising flour, you could avoid the baking soda and baking powder in the recipe.

Added  only half a cup of sugar since bananas are already sweet but add 3/4 cup if you want it sweeter. Also used canola oil and water to moisten the cake.  For richer taste substitute water with milk or  if you are a coffee lover, feel free to include coffee for making this Eggless Light Banana Cake. 

If you don't have time to bake this when your banana are fully ripened, stuff those bananas in a plastic bag and freeze them until  ready to make it (thaw them first before using).

So pleased with the outcome, the cake turns out gorgeous, extremely moist and no cracks on top. You won't be able to  tell this cake is  egg free and low in fat.  This can be baked in any size pan or muffin tins, just adjust the baking time.

APPLE & RAISIN SCONES

Scones Recipe @treatntrick.blogspot.com
Add caption
I love scones.  They are so versatile, you can choose from sweet with variety of fruits or  cheese ones and not to mention extremely easy.  This time, I had plenty of granny smith apples.  So this apple is going to be my baking project this week.

Always prefer to make a small batch so just used one and quarter cup of flour.  With this recipe  you could get  9 x 2.5 in  scones, just  sufficient for the small family.

Making scone is almost  the same as  baking pie or tart.  This requires you to blend dry ingredients with cold butter using your finger tips until it resembles  bread crumbs. The secret of good scones are not to handle the dough too much before baking.  It should be sticky and not too dry. Dip your cutter in flour each time before cutting out the dough.

Despite  containing  no eggs in the recipe, the scones are well risen, feather light, soft and utterly delicious.

My family enjoyed them fresh from the oven without any preserves or butter but prefer to add one more apple next time I bake them.

BLACKCURRANT OAT BARS

Blackcurrant Oat Bars Recipe @ http://treatntrick.blogspot.com


It's a time for my weekend baking and am craving for a quick but tasty dessert that can be put together  in  less than 15  minutes.    Any guess?

Definitely my choice  goes to  Blackcurrant Oatmeal Bars  reason  being I am able to make use of fruit jam  that sits idle in my pantry for quite some time.

Oats are a favorite of my diet and often incorporated into bars and desserts.  Not only oats are versatile and inexpensive but they offer a host of health benefits. The oatmeal gives  a nice chewiness to these  bars.

Spread dough onto bottom of baking pan coated with butter.  Spreading dough with wet hands is the easiest method before topping it with fruit jam. I used blackcurrant jam but any jam you have on hand will do preferably a  quality and not too sugary ones.

Blackcurrant Oat Bars  are easy to make and fantastically delicious! Have given some to my friends, they love them and keep asking for more...

PEACH CRUMB SLAB PIE

Slab Pie Recipe  @ http://treatntrick.blogspot.com


Peach Crumb Slab Pie is a fun way to serve pie like a bar.  The crust is rolled  to fit a rimmed jelly roll pan and shaped into a rectangle instead of round.

You can experiment with other fruits that are available throughout the year.  If using fresh fruits add juice of one lemon to avoid browning but now I used canned peaches that have been drained well.

We are not adding much sugar to the filling since the peaches are already sweetened.  Adding sugar to the crust as well but this is entirely up to your preference.

Don't worry if your crust tears while you're rolling it out, just patch it back together. You'll know it's good when you press the dough into ball shape.  If it is overly dry, add one tablespoon of ice water at a time.  At this point, you  can cover and refrigerate it.

MANDARIN ORANGE CROSTATA

Mandarin Orange Crostata


One of my favorite citrus fruits is mandarin orange.  They are so popular during Lunar New Year celebration that bring luck and wealth.  Since I have them in stock,  decided to bake  this Mandarin Orange Crostata  or free form tart.

If you find baking a tart  a little intimidating, you can check  my tips  here. .

First of all, prepare the crust  as per the recipe below. While waiting for the crust to be chilled, peel the mandarin oranges, remove the white thread on the outer segment.  Using a sharp knife, cut crosswise into 1/4 in thick slices.  Remove  the seeds, carefully transfer onto a plate, sprinkle with some sugar. Refrigerate.

After rolling and filling, you suppose to brush the mandarin orange with apricot preserves but  omit this step since I don't have it.  Alternately, just sprinkle more sugar over the mandarin orange just before baking.

You can always buy a ready made pie crust  but nothing  beats a homemade one!
