Guinness Beer Bread



Guinness stout beer bread .....My first attempt at baking with Guinness stout.  This is a no- yeast bread, very simple and quick to prepare.  It also saves a lot of time as being without yeast, there's no necessity for the dough to prove.  I made this all within 1.15 hrs.
















As you can see, the texture is dense but the taste is rather unique.  That goes for the shape too!  This bread is best eaten fresh and you can have them with stew, soup or  even good old butter and jam.  I'll let you know what I served this with in my next post ..... so stay tuned!

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),
