    100% Oats Bread with Apple & Sultana Raisins

    It seems my family members have been enjoying 100% Oats Bread. Today I added Apple and Sultana Raisins, and made it slightly sweeter. The ingredients of this bread are almost identical to the Porridge that I eat for breakfast. Just mix all ingredients and pour into a lined loaf tin, then leave it in a …

    100% Oats Bread

    I wanted to make 100% Oats Bread and I looked for recipes. There are not many recipes for Oats Bread that can be made without Wheat Flour. I tried a recipe but it was a very dodgy one and the dough turned like clay. That failure inspired me to make my own recipe for 100% …

    Rice Cooker Carrot Bread

    When I was a child, my family’s breakfast was Bread and Hot Drink. Some mornings, when my mother realised we didn’t have enough Bread, she often made steamed Bread. If she’d had a rice cooker that cooks Cake, she would have used it. This Carrot Bread was cooked in the rice cooker. The top side …

    Poppy Seed Twisted Bread

    When I started searching for Ukrainian foods, it was in March, one of the first discoveries was Poppy Seeds Roll. It was a thick log of bread that was rolled with black Poppy Seed Paste. I was curious and I wanted to taste it, but I didn’t know where I could find the Poppy Seed …

    Savoury ‘Aonori’ Doughnuts

    I recently discovered that people in southern Italy make deep-fried dough mixed with seaweed. It looks like Japan’s ‘Isobe-age’ Tempura, that is made with the batter mixed with ‘Aonori’ (Dried Green Laver Flakes). I tried to make Savoury Doughnuts using ‘Aonori’ and it was delicious. I added 1 tablespoon ‘Aonori’ today, and the flavour was …

    Easter ‘Pampushky’

    ‘Pampushky’ are Ukrainian Bread Rolls. They can be savoury OR sweet, and baked OR deep-fried. As the ‘Jam Filled ‘Pampushky’ that I made the other day were so good, today I used the same dough to make these Easter ‘Pampushky’. They are almost same as Hot Cross Buns, but the texture is similar to Doughnuts. …

    Jam Filled ‘Pampushky’

    ‘Pampushky’, the Ukrainian Bread Rolls, can be baked OR deep-fried. ‘Pampushky’ can be sweet, and sweet ‘Pampushky’ are often deep-fried and filled with Fruit Jam. Today I baked these sweet ‘Pampushky’. It’s very difficult to wrap ordinary Jam with bread dough. The easiest way is filling Jam after ‘Pampushky’ are baked. Makes 10 to 12 …

    ‘Mlyntsi’ Ukrainian Thin Pancakes

    Many counties have their own traditional thin Pancakes. France’s Crepes are probably the most famous ones. Ukraine’s thin Pancakes are called ‘Mlyntsi’. Similar to France’s Crepes, ‘Mlyntsi’ can be sweet or savoury. I tried a few recipes that I found on the internet, but most of them require too much Salt. I reduced the amount …

    ‘Pampushky’ Ukrainian Bread Rolls

    What a cute name ‘Pampushky’ is for these Ukrainian bread rolls! The singular form is ‘Pampushka’ and that sounds even cuter. ‘Pampushky’ have similar texture to Doughnuts, and they can be baked or fried. The world famous Ukrainian Soup ‘Borscht’ is often served with ‘Pampushky’ with ‘Garlic & Dill Oil’. If you like Garlic Bread …

    Vegan Nikuman (Soy Protein Buns)

    My daughter asked me to make a Vegetarian version of Nikuman (Steamed Pork Buns). I challenged myself to make a Vegan version using Soy Protein. These buns are delicious, and even my meat-loving husband enjoyed them. You can find very reasonably priced Dry Soy Protein products at many Asian grocery stores. Supermarkets sell them, too. …

    Pumpkin Bread

    This is another good way to use up your leftover Cooked Pumpkin. This bread doesn’t taste like Pumpkin, but it has the beautiful yellow colour and also the nutrients of the vegetable. The dough can be very soft and sticky. This is my favourite type of bread dough. Do not try to knead it if …
