松软红萝卜甜面包 Sweet and Fluffy Carrot Loaf (Vegan)



Our household consume an average of 6-8kg of carrot on a weekly basis. Its versatility makes it frequently use in our daily juicing, cooking and baking needs. 
我家每个星期都会用上6至8公斤的红萝卜。由于红萝卜适于用于多项用处,能搅汁,煮焖炒或当配料,甚至用于烘培都很好用。


Although I have used it in cake baking on many occasion, I have yet to incorporate it into making bread. Hence I set out to try out and I am extremely pleased with the outcome. While I wasn't sure whether it was the influence of the carrot, it is the most aromatic loaf of bread I have made so far. The  texture is soft and fluffy, the bread taste so good to be eaten on its own. Highly recommended!
虽然我曾多次采用红萝卜于蛋糕制做上,就是还没尝试混入面包的制作,所以这次就试用于来看看。烘烤出来的效果相当满意。不晓得是不是红萝卜的因素,是我所制做的面包里最香浓及美味的一种。烘烤出来的面包松软即香甜,根本都不须配上任何面包酱就已经好好吃了。 赞!

班兰烘糕 Kueh Bakar Pandan


After trying many recipe books, I still experience instances with failed outcomes despite strictly following everything as listed in the book. Generally, when one pays for published recipe books, it is expected to provide one with the failed proof results. From my experience by self taught through many store bought recipe books, not all the recipe works. 
虽然尝试采用了许多食谱参考书籍,而尽管我一一跟随着食谱里的步骤来做,我还是有遇到失败的时候。一般上,人们一旦出钱采购市上出版贩卖的食谱书籍,心中想必都会认定做出来的成品的成功率。我经过了数年从食谱书籍自学所领悟到的结论是,并不是本本书籍里的食谱都是零失败的。



Hence, whenever I pick up a recipe among my collection of books to try on, I would choose books from authors with reliable success rate. Here is one of the tested and proven recipe from Andrew Kow's "Malaysian Kuehs and Snacks".
因此,每当我要从众多的书籍里挑出新食谱尝试,一定会选择给予最高成功率作者的书籍来制做。这是一道简易即包成功的传统糕粿食谱取自于许孙祥的‘粿香满堂’。
