[KitchenAid Dough Recipe] 5 Thousand Dollars Starter Dough Bread - 五千元的老式面包

5K Starter Dough Bread
Apart from the Baked Egg Cake (烤鸡蛋糕) which I did recent, I also come across another "viral" recipe known as "5 Thousand Dollars Starter Dough" from my friend; Amy's (Motheringcorner) Facebook timeline. And through their discussions, it seems like many of the home bakers are trying out this recipes too. According to their comments this is seems to be another popular "dough" recipe when compare to the Tang Zhong (water roux - 烫种法) method a few years back. So without hesitate I decide to give this recipe a try and at the same time test out my new KitchenAid stand mixer.

[Weekly Meal Planner #3] Our 5 Favourite Western Dish Recipes

It's Monday again and I hope you people have a great week without any blues. For this last Monday of March we shall continue on our  "Weekly Meal Planner" column with FIVE of our family favourite western dishes such as braised wine chicken, chicken skewers, mushroom pie and homemade mushroom soup. These dishes are easy to prepare and you could even get ready the necessary ingredient the night before so that your meal would be ready on the dining table in less than an hour.

Out of the 5 featured recipes in this post; my favourite are Braised Red Wine Chicken and Chicken Mushroom Pot Pie because both are comfort food which could be easily whipped up and they taste awesome especially during cold weather or after a hectic day at work.

Banana Coconut Bread using Coconut Flour

I always love things to be simple when it comes to food preparation for the family. So whenever the recipe calls for "one pot dish" or "one pot cake" I would be most delighted to try it out because I get to wash lesser utensils as well as time spent in the kitchen. So here I have a quick recipe which only requires stir and mix after which you could sit back and relax while waiting for the cake to be out from the oven.

This quick Banana Coconut Bread has a lovely moist texture plus coconut scent from coconut flour used and I also love the extract dose of walnuts which gives the bread an extra crunch and nutty flavour.
