Doughnut

I know Mikael's wife will gonna laugh at me when she reads this blogpost of mine. I am not sure in your time, whether cooking is still an option in your household or it's became a rare occasions. Right now, cooking is an option in our household, since Aily and I are both working and we rather our  meals  to be delivered. However, since now we are in MCO (movement control order), due to Covid-19. We are no longer going to shopping mall just to have an evening tea, but instead we decided to cook.

So, Aily and I both take turns to cook. Sometimes, he will cook while I am breastfeeding or focus on my tasks, or sometimes I will cook while he is playing with Mikael. Since, I was a kid, kitchen is always my enemy - you can ask me to do other chores, but no cooking. However, day by day , I think I am okay with cooking. I cooked many dishes and made evening tea too. I managed to make a bread butter pudding without castard sauce. It was such a waste that I asked for help from the Grab Rider & turned out our house does not have evaporated milk. Nonetheless, the bread butter pudding was very delicious and stand on its own!

I saw a lot of people has been very active on Instagram & Facebook, sharing their food recipes & photos. Among all those, doughnut was the number one on chart. While I was checking my Facebook, I saw almost 7 people sharing their evening tea - doughnut. Checked my Instagram, again- doughnut, with a hashtag of #firstattempt.

So, I decided to make one too. Ah, I forgot we need to have instant yeast. While I was trying to panda-mart it, there's some magic happened, that I found instant yeast from the shelves! - it was my mom's! She bought it 5 months back when I was on confinement day. So, lucky. Thank you mom.

I found my yeast, wheat flour, oil, sugar, salt. All checked! Good. Making my first attempt of doughnut. Taste wise, it was very delicious. Appearance wise , my friend on Instagram said, it was the ugliest doughnut on earth.









So, today I made the second attempt of doughnut . Everything was perfect, until I realized, our wheat flour is out of stock! I almost had a panic attack, until I saw - corn flour, rice flour, glutinous rice flour, Bestari flour.

Okay, I had a lot of flours on the shelves. I am pretty sure, mixing them a bit won't change the texture, or even the taste. Out of all, I chose rice flour. As expected, the taste is the same. No changes. Still delicious, and improvement done on the shape.



.

Great improvement from the first attempt.

But..




Then again, some "haters" (HAHAHA) on Instagram commented :

"Omg sis, tu macam jubur sis " - Grace
" Yesss when I saw ur shaping before deep frying it, dah agak, sure will be like this lol" - Fey
"tengah tu kau pakai penutup botol bha" - Pai
" Mas, go to your laptop again, this does not suit you " - Anis
" Kak Mawar 😅😅😅😅😅" - Sarah
" Again, still the ugliest one on earth " - Aina



😒😒😒😒😒😒😒.

Will definitely make the third attempt. Wait , we are out off  wheat flour.
Okay, next time.
