The Soft Killer Toast

There is this just one proofing bread recipe, which became quite famous last year, which was started by Victoria Bakes.

I have made this loaf of bread a couple of times, especially on days when I am really tight on time. However, I didn't realise that I didn't managed to note it down on my blog.

This recipe is really quite convenient for me, as a busy mom. I would just leave it to the bread machine to knead the dough. Once the dough is formed, I'll just take it out to punch out air and shape it, then leave in the bread pan to proof. Once done, just bake in the oven.

What's more interesting, is that this loaf of bread yields quite a soft loaf, despite the easy method! So if you're a busy mum, or just want to try a no-hassle bread, try this out!

DIY Salted Clay Dough

Oh dear, please do not judge the messy background haha!

Do you always run out of ideas for screen-free activities for the little ones? Oh yes, I do lol!

It was until I found DIY salted clay dough. DIY salted clay dough is a super easy and fun activity for the toddlers! Salted clay dough can be used as a natural play dough, for sensory play, and/or make crafts, sculptures or ornaments. It's just so versatile!

Most of the time when I run out of ideas for screen-free time for the toddler, I usually rely on this salted clay dough, because it can be put together easily!

Though this salted clay dough can be air-dried, I find it absorbing moisture from the air after airing them overnight - probably due to our humid weather. So I find it better to air dry overnight, and then bake in the oven :)

Winnie the Pooh Deco Donuts

Made some baked donuts yesterday, and I was quite happy with how they turned out!

Made them 2 ways - 1 of which, I piped the facial details before baking; the other, I simply just decorated using dark and white chocolate. Needless to say, I gave the chocolate free ones to the toddler hahah!

Since they are baked donuts, they taste more cakey than, well, donuts. Give these a try, and let me know if you like them like I do!
