1/4 cup white sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup dried currants(raisins)
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup milk
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
In a large bowl, mix the flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, salt, and currants. Make a well in the center. In a small bowl, beat egg until frothy, and stir in melted butter and milk. Pour into the well, and mix to create a soft dough. Pat dough into two 1/2 inch thick circles. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Score 8 wedges into each circle of dough.
Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until risen and browned. Split wedges, and serve warm.
Make this last weekend, I got this recipe from "allrecipes", quite ok but a little bit too sweet for my taste. So if you want it to be less sweet, reduce the sugar amount.
Portuguese Egg Tarts (source: allrecipes)
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 vanilla bean
1 cup white sugar
6 egg yolks
1 (17.5 ounce) package frozen puff pastry, thawed
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C.) Lightly grease 12 muffin cups and line bottom and sides with puff pastry.
In a saucepan, combine milk, cornstarch, sugar and vanilla. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens. Place egg yolks in a medium bowl. Slowly whisk 1/2 cup of hot milk mixture into egg yolks. Gradually add egg yolk mixture back to remaining milk mixture, whisking constantly. Cook, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes, or until thickened. Remove vanilla bean.
Fill pastry-lined muffin cups with mixture and bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and filling is lightly browned on top
Salam, today hubby not working, he took urgent leave. Still not feeling well since last week. Since he's home, I've decided to cook 'Sup ekor lembu' and butter rolls to go with it. Actually I've already posted recipe for the soup but I'll copy & paste......
Sup Ekor Lembu
1 kg ekor lembu, direbus hingga empuk (kita gunakan pressure cooker jadi cepat sikit)
1 labu bawang besar, dikisar
2 ulas bawang putih, dikisar
1 inci halia, dikisar
2 kuntum bunga lawang
4 biji pelaga
1/2 cawan oats
2 sudu makan rempah sup
4 batang celery, potong dadu
2 biji kentang, sebiji dibelah 4
2 batang carrot, dipotong kecil2
2 biji tomato, dibelah 4
lada putih serbuk
Panaskan minyak dan tumiskan bunga lawang dan pelag
a. Masukkan bahan-bahan yang telah dikisar tadi hingga garing. Masukkan ekor lembu bersama air rebusannya sekali dan biarkan mendidih sebentar. Masukkan rempah sup dan oats dan kacau hingga sebati dan masukkan kentang, carrot dan celery masak hingga kentang empuk. Masukkan garam dan lada putih.

Butter Rolls (source: allrecipes)
2 1/2 cups warm milk
4 teaspoons active dry yeast
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 teaspoons salt
7 cups all-purpose flour, or as needed
1/2 cup butter, melted
Pour milk into a large mixing bowl, and sprinkle yeast over the surface. Allow to rest for 5 minutes. Beat in the sugar, eggs, 1/2 cup butter, and salt; blend thoroughly. Gradually stir in the flour to make a soft dough. Cover bowl, and set in a warm place until dough doubles in size, about 1 hour.
Punch down the dough, cover the bowl, and allow to rise again. Repeat this step two more times.
Break off 2 to 3 inch size pieces of dough, roll lightly into round shape, and place in prepared baking dish, edges touching. Repeat to make 36 dough balls. Cover and let rise until doubled in size.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
Bake rolls in preheated oven until tops turn golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes. When rolls are finished baking, drizzle melted butter over the top, and serve warm.
Salam, these few days I rasa malas je....nak buat apa2 pun asyik tertangguh je....Guilty conscious often creeps upon me for not being a good mother at this point of time. Aiman asyik tanya bila I nak start jahitkan pyjama untuk dia which I've promised to him way before ramadhan lagi.....Hmm..I pun sendiri tertanya bilalah I nak start buatkan dia....Apa2 pun, walaupun malas, masak tetap going on as normal. These few days hubby tak berapa sihat so bila masak tu...I kenalah masak ikut selera tekak dia tapi tak lupa juga untuk anak2. Normally if hubby is sick, he always prefer to eat soup or porridge which is not to the liking of the kids. Anak2 ni semua suka makan yang pedas2 so when I cooked vegetable soup for ayah, for them I cooked ikan sambal and when I cooked porridge, then it's pasta (yang pedas tau) for them....everybody pun happy kan...layanlah gambar2 kat bawah ni....
