ROTI JOHN (ASIAN FRENCH TOAST)

Breakfast recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

My son is craving for something simple yet fulfilling meal called Roti John.  This is an Asian style savory french toast. It is made with bread topped with a mixture of onion, red chili, garlic, minced meat or chicken and eggs are added as a binding agent. Season well with black pepper and salt. This goes straight to your kitchen for pan frying until golden brown. I used canned sardine this time.

Making Roti John is simple. I do not have to make the dough, just need to use bread as the base preferably baguette or hot dog bun. Now if you do not have baguette at home, you can use your normal bread, it will do just fine. Highly recommended to use wholemeal bread for a healthier choice.

Normally they are eaten with chili sauce but my son loves to eat them on its own. It is so fast and satisfying!

Banana Pancake  Recipe  @ http;//Treatntrick.blogspot.com

Banana Pancake Recipe  @ http;//Treatntrick.blogspot.com


This  pancake recipe is so easy, just add any fruit that you have at home in the freezer. Banana  is what I have right now so have made use some of them for making this pancake - tastes delicious with brown sugar syrup.

A simple  brown sugar syrup that  I can make while mixing the pancake batter is really easy and it's fast, so much better than bottled pancake syrup.

Everyone has a recipe for pancakes and some of them enjoy it as a special breakfast. Obviously there is a need out here for a good pancake recipe. You can use it for a savory filling too but by far my favorite filling is a squeeze of lemon juice and a sprinkle of sugar.

You can also make your pancake using seasonal ingredients and enjoy the flavors of each month throughout the year.

1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup regular/ almond milk

MEE TOMATO / NOODLES IN TOMATO GRAVY



Mee Tomato  is my son favorite noodle. I cook this quite often whenever we want a change  in our regular diet. Mee or noodles are made of plain flour or rice flour and they come in various shape and sizes. I don't have wheat noodles so I have to improvise by using thick rice noodle instead.

It is eaten with a spicy,  sour and slightly sweet gravy. If you can't take the heat, reduce the chili paste used.

Traditionally bean sprout is a must for noodle,  since  my son  doesn't like it,   have used peas instead. In fact mustard greens  and  napa  cabbage  are perfect addition to this noodle. It is a complete meal in a bowl!

Banana is quite a common fruit available in most kitchen. It is my habit to turn those ripened banana into a delicious, quick week day dessert.

This recipe yields a moist Yeasted Banana Cake that will make those banana cake haters into big fans.

It combines the sweetness of ripe mashed banana with yeast minus the butter or fat. This  traditional cake is also suited to be steamed.  Like anything baked  with yeast, this requires about an hour to rise.

1+1/4 C  all purpose flour
1 C  mashed banana
1/2 C  castor sugar
3/4 C + 1 TB  warm evaporated milk
1/2 tsp salt
1+1/2 tsp instant yeast

METHOD

Grease 8 in deep cake pan. Whisk together milk, yeast and sugar in a small bowl.

In a mixing bowl, put in flour, banana and salt. Stir well.

Now add the milk mixture to the flour, stir to combine.




Pour mixture into greased  pan and let sit for 1 hour. Towards the end of rising time, preheat oven @  170C.

Bake for 40-45  minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Let sit in the pan for 10 minutes, transfer onto rack to cool.

HOMEMADE APPLE ROLLS

Yeast Rolls Recipe @ http://treatntrick.blogspot.com


We are having Homemade Apple Rolls for warm breakfast food in our home. I like to make them from scratch.

As with yeast, for this Homemade Apple Roll, you will need to plan ahead but it's so worth it. The apple filling can be well prepared a day before and keep refrigerated. It is cooked using microwave but could be done on stove top by combining all the filling ingredients, let cook for 10 minutes with  constant stirring. Leave to cool completely before use.

Unlike regular rolls, these rolls are baked as a log then equally slice after baking.

This dough works up beautifully, it is easy to do and they are so good.
