Benefits of making your own bread are so numerous that when you consider it, you would prefer to make it yourself especially when you have a fail proof recipe like the one am going to be showing you now.

Homemade bread is by far better than store bought, its chemical free (no preservatives), it’s rich, tasty and you are in control of what ingredients go into it! So you see that it makes a whole lot of sense to start making your own bread. So let’s get to it already

Ingredients

6cups flour
1/2cup sugar
1teaspoon salt
3large eggs
2cups warm milk
1/4cup of softened butter
3teaspoon dry active yeast

Directions

In a large bowl pour your warm milk (warm not hot) and add your softened butter to it, sprinkle your yeast into the milk (make sure it’s active yeast please) now add your sugar, salt and 2eggs give it a good mix with a whisk and gently add the flour one cup at a time, setting aside 1cup of flour for kneading the dough.

Soft bread rolls recipe1After you mixing in the flour and you have a soft, sticky dough, flour a smooth surface and turn the dough onto the floured surface and knead gently, it will be sticky so just keep adding little flour( make sure you don’t get tempted to use too much flour while kneading or your bread will be strong not soft) knead for 8-10minutes and then place the dough in a deep large bowl, cover with a kitchen towel and allow to rise for 1hour, that’s enough time for it to double or triple in size.

Soft bread rolls recipe1After one hour, uncover the dough and punch it release all the air, transfer the dough onto a floured surface and knead again for 5minutes, after kneading, cut the dough into ten or more parts depending on how large or small you want your bread rolls, make each cut out into a ball by rolling it in circular motion till you get a ball shape formed.

Take a baking sheet that has been buttered or sprayed with cooking spray and line your rolls into it. Now turn on your oven to 275degrees, now take a kitchen towel and cover the dough to allow it rise for another 30minutes.

Soft bread rolls recipe1After 30minutes, uncover the dough, crack the remaining 1egg into a bowl and add 2tablespoon of water, mix and gently brush this egg wash all over the dough, place the baking sheet into your oven that had been hearing up and allow this to bake for 30minutes until the bread start to have a golden brown colour on top.

Bring out your bread and allow to cool for at least 20minutes before you serve. It’s this easy and straight forward. Try it out and as usual leave me your comments.

In a separate bowl mix together the egg, milk, melted butter ,milk and vanilla extract , then pour this mix into the dry ingredients and whisk to combine properly , add in your grated carrots as well as your coconut ( save some of the coconut to place on the top of your muffins),  mix this in until all is combined.

NOTE– the batter will be thick and a bit lumpy but don’t worry no need to over mix it or your muffins will turn out hard instead of light and fluffy.

Serve your muffins with hot cup of coffee or cocoa with a side of protein and enjoy. This is a perfect breakfast for weekends when the entire family can sit together and savor every taste and flavour.

Yummy Coconut Rice recipe1

All the coconut lovers please raise your hands let’s know ourselves

Coconut is one of my favorite fruit to eat; you can pair it with soft hot bread, boiled corn or just eat it as a snack on its own! Sigh, it has so many nutritious health benefits which are why there is a recent hype to it, these days this is virtually nothing you can’t make with or from coconut.

Coconut Rice one yummy and equally cost effective meal that you can make which will satisfy the whole family, my secret to making it extra delicious and pocket friendly is by making the milk myself from fresh coconut, instead of buying the store packed ones.

For today’s recipe we will just be making use of the coconut milk and trust me this is so yummy and easy to prepare, even if it’s your first time you won’t get it wrong, so let’s get cooking.

INGREDIENTS

3cups of rice

4cups fresh coconut milk

Red chilly peppers

Tomatoes

Small onion

Green pepper

Salt and seasoning

2tablespoon ground crayfish

Vegetable oil 4tablespoon

Bay leaves

DIRECTIONS

Wash and parboil your rice for 10-12 minutes, strain and set aside.

Wash and slice all your veggies (tomatoes, peppers and onions ) , place a deep sauce pan on low heat and add in your vegetable oil, allow to heat up a bit then you add your veggies in no particular order.

Sauté the veggies for a few minutes, now it’s time to include your Bay leaves (3leaves is enough) salt and seasoning, leave to cook for three minutes and then add your coconut milk.

Once you have added your milk, leave to cook for five minutes, give it a good stir and taste to make sure your salt and seasoning is adequate, as this is the base for your coconut rice.

After five minutes, add in your rice, stir to incorporate and leave to cook for at least 15minutes or till the rice is cooked through and soft, by now I bet the aroma of the coconut milk is making you salivate, lol, allow the rice to dry of every liquid and serve garnished with some the green peppers and any side of protein that you like.

So guys that’s your simple, easy and extra yummy coconut rice! Kindly try out this recipe and let me know how it went in the comment section.

P.S the more pepper in this dish the tastier it is, but feel free to use pepper to your discretion.
