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!

    16 oz plain flour

Stir in the sugar and mix well with a balloon whisk

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead.

Coffee Walnut Butter Cake ~ 咖啡核桃牛油蛋糕

  This Coffee Walnut Butter cake recipe is adapted from my Marble Butter Cake which I posted some time back.  I tweaked it a bit to accommodate blended walnuts, added some coffee and Kahlua liqueur.  As always, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe never fails and this cake is soft and moist and indeed yummy.
