Condensed Milk Ross Recipe @

A perfect sweet bread to accompany your morning cup of coffee or tea.

Condensed Milk Rolls is similar with other sweet bread recipe but with addition of sweetened condensed milk.

These rolls  require longer time to rise, in my case it tools more than  90 minutes.  Out of this dough I get 9 decent rolls.

It can be shaped into any shape you like, filled with sweet filling, braid or turn into one big loaf,

We love to dunk Condensed Milk Rolls in  freshly brewed coffee while watching a television show.  You may check other bread recipes I have baked over the years:

Perfect Oatmeal Quick Bread Recipe @

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
This Perfect Oatmeal Quick Bread  is a  super easy, slightly sweet bread loaded with  nutritious rolled oat.

Added just a  quarter cup of sugar since I intend to add dried cranberries.  You may add more if you are not adding any  dried fruit.

Firstly,  I intend to make just a plain oatmeal bread but my hubby requested to add dried cranberries in the dough.

Am so glad this Perfect Oatmeal Quick Bread turned out perfect in texture and sweetness.

In fact the addition of cranberries  eliminate the use of extra butter and jam since this is great to eat on its own.  It is actually a lot easier then what  you think to make your own.   And the results are delicious.

Plum Hand Pies using 2 Ingredients Dough Recipe @

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
My first trial making this 2 ingredients dough  using  self rising flour and  Greek yogurt.

The dough can be used to make pizza, bread sticks, pretzels and many more.

I choose to turn this  into Plum Hand Pies Using 2 Ingredients Dough.  It comes  together pretty quick but it was damn sticky to work with.

Only  manage to get a decent size of  6 hand pies out of  this recipe.  As I ran out of fresh plums so added some green apple to make up to 2 cups.

My Plum Hand Pies Using 2 Ingredients Dough turned out soft with crisp edges.  Being a tart fruit, plums need more sugar to sweeten but am okay with this filling.

Serve this fresh  homemade Chocolate  Marble Quick Bread that was a breeze to make using a whisk.

Have reduced the sugar a bit since I intend to ice the cake later.  Am so glad that this Chocolate Marble Quick Bread turned out just right, the way I want it.

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
This Savory Flower Bread is soft, tender and tasty.  It was made with a basic sweet bread.

From the basic  bread dough, it is shaped just like a flower after proofing.  You may want to make your preferred filling either sweet or savory,

I stuffed mine with egg bhurji  (spicy scrambled eggs) and divided into 2.  That means each portion has 8 petals.   Turns into one big loaf that has 16 petals using  10 in pie plate or cake tin. Place 4 in the center, the rest around the tin.

Savory Flower Bread  goes well with egg bhurji, completed it within a day! ,

Easy Sour Cream Cake Recipe @
Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
A delightful and moist, Easy Sour Cream Cake for our tea-time treat this week.

There are tons of recipe for this cake that was rich and decadent, but sometimes you need just a quick dessert that was  simple and delicious.   That is what this Easy Sour Cream Cake for me,  the perfect easy treat to make. 

For lighter version, opt for oil  instead of butter  As for the topping,  chopped nuts like  walnut, pecan, pistachio, hazelnut  can be added in place of chocolate chips and double the sugar. 1/4 cup brown sugar plus 1/4 cup white sugar.

Despite using just a wire whisk, no-mixer, this cake  produces an incredible result,  tender and no-crack.

Cranberry Bread Recipe @
Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
Enjoy freshly baked Cranberry Bread  in this tender quick bread.

This delicious bread is made with plenty of dried cranberries and nut free.  Like most of quick bread recipe,  no mixer is needed, it is simply mix and stir all the ingredients.

For successful  quick breads. DO NOT OVER MIX.  Once they are combined,  mix as little as possible.  The mixture will contain some lumps.  The result is a soft, tender, cake-like texture.

Added half a cup of sugar and that was sufficient to sweeten this bread.  You  may add more if you like.  Just add one large egg instead of 2 small one.

Cranberry Bread turns out  wonderfully soft with right amount of sweetness.  It was a cross between cake and bread.  It does not need any frosting, we love to eat them just it is with  a cuppa.

Super Soft Dinner Rolls Recipe @
Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

I have been  baking yeast bread for years now and this Super Soft Dinner Rolls  is  my first bread for the year 2018.

The dough was really sticky,  I can't hardly knead the dough after mixing flour mixture and wet ingredients.

After 1st rising. add butter and extra flour (added about  3-4  tablespoon or more)  to knead the dough until smooth and elastic.

The dough can be shaped in many ways but I just shape it into round ones.  It can also be stuffed with sweet or savory filling or easily turn into one big loaf.

After baking at 180 C for 25 minutes, I got those fluffy and golden brown Super Soft Dinner  Rolls.

My hubby said, they are the best gorgeous dinner rolls I have ever made!

Vegetable Bread Pockets Recipe @
Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
Wishing my lovely readers a Healthy and Prosperous New Year!

A tasty snack made with sandwich bread, stuffed with vegetables. These Vegetable Bread Pockets can be customized to your liking.

Other vegetables like capsicum. beans, peas could replace cabbage.  I happen to have cabbage so use that for my filling.

Feel free to add meat  such as a cup of shredded cooked chicken or cooked mince meat if you like,  Don't forget to add extra spices if you use  meat.

I shallow fried my Vegetable Bread Pockets instead of deep frying.  These turned out crispy but soft inside.

Proper sealing is essential to avoid filling leakage,   Make a thick paste of water and plain flour as a sealant.

These yummy pockets go well with tomato ketchup or chutney but we love to eat them as it is, full of beautiful flavors!

Perfect Blueberry Pancake Recipe  @

This  Perfect Blueberry Pancake was super easy and  fail proof.  You can also make it ahead,  store in a fridge and make them fresh at the time of serving.

You can also check my Banana Pancake w/Brown Sugar Syrup. or savory Semolina and Oatmeal Pancake or Onion Pancake for a change.

This  versatile pancake  can be made with other flours too, adding  fruits like apple, strawberry, pear or pineapple.

For best result, allow the batter to rest for 15 minutes  before frying them.

I used 1/4 cup measure to make this Perfect Blueberry Pancake,  so get about 9 pancakes.

Fried Banana w/Chocolate Recipe @

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
Super tasty treat made of  banana.   This Fried Banana w/Chocolate is dipped in coating batter, fried  then drizzle with chocolate. The combination  works better than you  might expect. these sweet and juicy  dessert  taste even better  when served hot.

I used ripened banana, slice it diagonally.  It is best to slice it last    to avoid discoloration.

After mixing the batter, you could add one or two tablespoon more water if it is too thick.  The batter should be the  right  consistency to coat the banana well.

Instead of deep frying, I prefer to shallow fried them as not to  waste so much oil.  Always avoid re-using the same oil.

Fried Banana w/Chocolate turned out  awesome.  We clean up the whole batch immediately.  Eating them on their own was delicious but with chocolate. it tastes even better!

Stow Top Raisin Bread Recipe @
Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
A quick raisin bread made over the stove top.  If you are away from your oven or your oven was no longer working. you  should check out this Stovetop Raisin Bread to continue enjoying your favorite bread.

To bake bread without oven,  the following utensils could be used:
Saute pan
Deep pot
Dutch oven
Pressure cooker

Whatever utensil you choose,  make sure to have  sufficient space for  distribution of heat and even cooking.  That means after putting a loaf pan or cake tin. it has a gap between the sides and top of pan before putting the lid on.

Another important measure to consider, avoiding the bottom part to get burned.  Either put a layer of salt or  trivet, pot holder rack/or ceramic plate before putting the pan.

I baked my Stovetop Raisin Bread using 36 cm wok Layer the bottom with salt before putting the loaf pan.

The downside of the method was that your can't get golden brown color top  as you get using conventional oven.

Yogurt Rolls Recipe @
Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

A soft and fluffy Yogurt Rolls to kick start your day. Am addicted to bread baking and always on  look out to try out new recipe.

After long time, I have baked a bread using yogurt like this  recipe.    But this time  using  butter and lesser time to knead the dough.  The dough was very sticky so you need to add 1-2 tablespoon of flour to knead them.

To shape it, divide dough into 6 equal portion.  Roll each portion into a smooth ball.  Yogurt Rolls can be shaped into one big loaf as well.    .

I don't mind  to wait more than  2 hours  because in the end  we have these gorgeous rolls to enjoy!

Brown Sugar Pull Apart Bread From Scratch @
Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers
Made with dough balls from sweet bread coated with brown sugar and butter sauce.

After long gap, I have made this Brown Sugar Pull Apart Bread From Scratch  aka Monkey Bread from scratch,  you can find  my previous recipe here .

You can use bundt pan or loaf pan for baking this bread.  If you're not a sweet person, omit the sauce to add  cheese, garlic, bacon, jalapeno or  buffalo  chicken.

This time I choose different method to make it.  My Brown Sugar Pull Apart Bread From Scratch  eliminates a step of rolling the dough balls.  Is this save your time a bit?  Divide the sauce into 3,  first portion goes to the base of the pan.  Second one, pour over after layering  the balls and last one, spoon over the last layer of dough balls.

The dough was very sticky but did not add any additional flour and it yields a fluffy and soft bread indeed.

Cranberry Raisin Bread Recipe @

A quick bread laden with cranberries and raisin.  I always love to bake this Cranberry Raisin Bread that was easy and super delicious to  have for breakfast.

Cranberries need to be chopped then soak in boiling water together with raisin, sugar, baking soda  and butter for at  least 30 minutes.

Alternatively you can  bring it  to a  boil, add in  cranberries, raisin butter and sugar.  Mix in baking soda, let stand for 5 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients and it is ready to go the oven.

Cranberries Raisin Bread rose perfectly and so moist.  They are  best served warm in thick slices with your favorite drink.

A deep fried  savory  doughnut  made with semolina, onion, yogurt, cumin seeds and ginger.

If you are looking for a quick and without fermentation of dough, this  Semolina / Vada Vada is a perfect choice.

I have rest the dough for 30 minutes before frying also added  freshly ground black pepper but this is optional, you may omit it altogether.

Running out of green chili so have used red chili instead.

Braided Cinnamon Bread Recipe @

Made from scratch,  this  Braided  Cinnamon Bread just got even better in shape and  taste.

You can also use this basic recipe to make a regular cinnamon rolls, dinner rolls,  sweet bun, monkey bread,  breakfast rolls and many more.  Simply  filling and shaping the base dough differently can result an entirely new product.

I have cut the dough  into  2 after shaping them into a log or you can easily turn it into one bigger loaf.

It smells wonderful while baking because of the addition of cinnamon.  The dough was easy to work with,   no additional flour required for mixing the dough.

Though my shaping wasn't  great but this Braided Cinnamon Bread is one of the best cinnamon rolls I ever made!
