EASY DINNER ROLLS

Easy Dinner Rolls Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


These homemade yeast rolls are well worth the effort.   Easy Dinner Rolls  go perfectly with any meal.  I like to dunk it in a cup of coffee or dip in a bowl of spicy gravy or soup.

I still remember, how my first time making bread,  It turned out miserably.  After years of playing with yeast and successfully baked them, I think everyone can bake a better bread, just  keep practicing!  In fact baking bread isn't that hard if your follow these basic rules.

!.  Yeast
Should be fresh and active..  To check, sprinkle  yeast in lukewarm water with little sugar and wait for 10 minutes until bubbly, if not discard the yeast,

2.  Water
Must be warm to touch and not very hot otherwise you killed the yeast. More water you get in the dough,  the bigger air bubbles you'll get, it makes fluffier bread

3.  Texture
It should be soft like baby's cheek  to get soft and fluffy bread.  Adding too much flour , makes a dense and dry loaf.   Add flour gradually and only the minimum

Today. I will show you how to make these Easy Dinner Rolls that was easy.   Made  by hand but you can use a mixer or bread machine too.  It involves mixing the dry and wet ingredients, knead it then leave to rise until doubled, it may takes shorter or longer time,   don't rush this  final step.  Shape into desired shape then again let sit to rise for  another 60= 90 minutes.

Add variety to your bread by forming the rolls into different shapes or fill these rolls with your favorite filling like chocolate, custard, red bean etc.   Even the plain Easy Dinner Rolls  tasted so good.

Am using a standard muffin cup and filled them  3/4 full, it yields only 10.  But you  will get more if using a smaller ones.

I did not mix in the blueberry in the batter but put them in between.  Quick Blueberry Oatmeal Cups are mildly sweeten with brown sugar but this is okay for me,  if necessary  adjust  accordingly to your liking.  more.

MOIST MARBLE BANANA CAKE

Moist Marble Banana Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com








Am obsessed with marble cake  or bread.  So far I have baked  Eggless Marble Banana CakeBanana Chocolate Bread Marbled and   Marble Cake  but that does't stop me from trying another recipe.

Most  of the recipes  call for melted butter but this  Moist Marble Banana Cake uses  vegetable oil.  It has a right amount of sweetness and stay moist even after the next day.

After experiencing and baking with banana.  I must admit that using a right banana is the key to perfect cake.  The banana should be ripe but  firm and not too soft because soft banana contains more water, it tends to make your cake slightly wet.

Another point was about cocoa powder.   Adding more cocoa means you have to add more sugar to sweeten the cake.   Just add a tablespoon or two  of cocoa in the batter is more than sufficient, you still get beautiful marble effect.  So glad Moist Marble Banana Cake turned out incredible!

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..

PERFECT CHOCOLATE CAKE RECIPE

Perfect Chocolate Cake Recipe @ treatntricl.blogspot.com


I have tried various recipes of  chocolate cake and still looking for a perfect ones.  Stumbled upon this recipe on Facebook and decided to try it out one day.

At first glance, it looks complicated with a lot of ingredients, but actually another reason I love this recipe that it  uses a whisk to mix, combine both  wet and dry ingredients then you're ready to bake it.

This Perfect Chocolate Cake can be steamed but I chose to bake it.  Made slight changes by reducing the cocoa powder to 3/4 cup and increase the amount of flour to 1 1/2 cups.  Also reduce baking soda to 1/2 teaspoon.

Despite the changes I  made,  this Perfect Chocolate Cake turns out wonderful!  Perfect chocolate flavor with right amount of sweetness.When completely cool,  glaze as desired.  I don't do this since my family prefer plain good cake without any frosting.
