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!.

BRAIDED CINNAMON BREAD RECIPE

Braided Cinnamon Bread Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

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!

LEMON YOGURT CAKE RECIPE

Lemon Yogurt Cake Recipe @ treatntrick.bkogspot.com

Super easy, quick and delicious Lemon Yogurt Cake  made with lemon zest, lemon juice and  and   topped with lemon frosting.

This cake uses vegetable oil and not butter as compared with other recipes.  At first, am reluctant to try it since it contains  high sugar in the cake plus for the frosting.

Surprisingly this Lemon Yogurt Cake has a right amount of sweetness and the best part was the frosting, it gives a wonderfully lemon  flavor. This will be my new to go recipe.

AGAR AGAR GUDIR RECIPE

Agar Agar Gudir Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


A popular dessert during  fasting month made with agar agar powder and  coconut milk.

This Agar Agar Gudir tastes even better with addition of  gula melaka (palm sugar),  If using this sugar you need not add any coloring at all.

Bought a red color agar2 powder so I use white sugar.  Make sure to purchase a colorless pack if you intend to add palm sugar.

The secret to a perfect Agar Agar  Gudir are:

1.  Sugar must be dissolved completely and it should be rolling boiling before you add coconut,

2,  After adding  egg mixture, it should be boiled until  the eggs curdle into  tiny bits.  This would make your Agar Agar  into 2 layers and looks very pretty.

BAKED VEGGIE SAMOSA RECIPE

Baked Veggie Samosa Recipe  @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A healthy version of  classic Samosa stuffed with fresh vegetables, made from scratch.

This famous fried snack from Indian subcontinent  are well liked and enjoyed around the globe.   Mostly they are deep fried and stuffed with vegetarian or non vegetarian fillings.

If you are looking for  an alternative way to eat them, this Baked Veggie Samosa is the solution.  These are stuffed with fresh vegetables  I  have on hand, capsicum, carrot, potato and tomato.

When mixing the dough, add water little by little.  You may not need to add the specified amount as per the recipe.

I did not boil the potato before hand but straight away add them to the spices and sprinkle with some water to let them become tender..

My Baked Veggie Samosa turned  out amazing, pastry is wonderful with crisp crust.   This one is a keeper!.

QUICHE BREAD CUPS RECIPE

Quiche Bread Cups Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

A delightful mini bite made with bread slices, can  be  filled with all sorts of yummy filling.

Made these  Quiche Bread Cups with white sandwich bread but you could choose other type of bread too.

Use microwave to warm up the bread,  if you don't  have a microwave oven, you may steam them.   This procedure makes the bread soft and easy to shape without tearing.

This time I  chose capsicum and tomato plus a hint of chili powder to lift the flavor but feel free to include other vegetables and other spices you prefer.

Other add in I would suggest are cooked chicken, bacon or tuna.  If you love cheese, you may add a quarter cup of shredded cheese over the top of these  Quiche Bread Cups.

HOW TO MAKE FINGER ROLLS RECIPE

How to make Finger Rolls Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

These  yeasted rolls are made with regular flour and whole wheat.

I have tried all sort of bread baking with variations of method. How To Make Finger Rolls use slightly different way from what I used to make.

Remarkably easy recipe but need muscle work if you're using your hand or else dump the dough in your stand mixer  or bread maker to knead it.

Another thing I notice that  How To Make Finger Rolls let you shape them immediately after kneading.  Then allow to rise until doubled for 1.5 to 2 hours.

When adding liquid to the dough, add in increments,  All flour is hot the same,  you may  need more or less water/milk as indicated.

I really enjoyed making them.  the dough is so lovely to work with. You can ice them or stuff with sweet or savory filling if desired.

DIGESTIVE BROWNIES RECIPE

Digestive Brownies Recipe  @ treatntrick.blogspot.com

Deliciously yummy treat  using Digestive biscuits,  made from scratch.

Am craving for a dessert that was quick and easy that does not involve a complicated step to make.  So I decided to whip up  this Digestive Brownies.

Since I have a sleeve of digestive biscuits so why not incorporated them in brownies. I crushed these but you can use quartered digestive over the top of brownies batter.  Actually you can use other cookies but stick to this proportion , 1 1/2 cups to be added to the batter and 1/4 cup for topping (quartered or crushed).

Always prefer not so sweet treat so use only 3/4 cup of sugar, Digestive Brownies were so good even my hubby who are not keen having sweet dessert requested for extra pieces.

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.
