[Recipe] Teh Tarik French Toast – Powered by Panasonic SD–P104 Bread Maker

This is the last of three posts sponsored by Panasonic; we have been sharing our very own creations in these posts.
As an expression of love and gratitude towards our loved ones, we also attempted to serve these 3 dishes as a 3-course meal to our families.
Here’s for Desserts – Teh Tarik French Toast.

In this final segment of bread-making using Panasonic SD-P104 – we decided to create a sweet bread having made 2 savoury breads earlier. Given K’s love for all milk tea, she immediately pounced on the idea of Teh Tarik…and it was non-negotiable :P

Ingredients 3   Lining up the ingredients

Teh Tarik MixThe main differentiator of this loaf is it’s Teh Tarik flavour – we used instant 3-in-1 Teh Tarik mix and a black tea bag to strengthen the tea flavour.

DoughThis is how a kneaded dough should look like – not too dry nor watery (this is extremely important to note if you would like to experiment around with flavours like we did). You may open the lid of the bread maker to steal a peek  during the ‘knead’ process but make sure whatever yeast and dry ingredients placed on the top lid of the machine is secure. Avoid opening the lids during ‘fermentation’ and ‘bake’ stages as this will affect the temperature and hence the end result.

When baking this loaf, we also checked out the ‘Timer’ function of the Panasonic SD-P104 Bread Maker because K & I needed to head out to for an appointment in between; we followed the usual procedure but before pressing ‘Start’, we pressed on the ‘Timer’ function and set the desired time we would like the loaf to be completed.

Loaf 2Upon reaching home, this is what greeted us; it is great to be able to enjoy peace of mind and  feel so in-control while achieving such satisfying results.

Recipe (1 loaf = 8 slices, 15mins of preparation, 2hours of baking)
Bakers flour – 280g
Butter - 10g
Salt – 5g
Instant 3-in-1 Teh Tarik – 3 packets
Tea Bag – 1
Water – 210ml
Instant Yeast – 4.2g

1) Prepare Teh Tarik mix by boiling the water and pouring it onto the instant teh tarik and tea bag combined. Bring Teh Tarik mix to 25deg (use ice bath if needed)
2) Put flour, butter, salt in the bread bucket and then pour teh tarik mix into bread bucket – try to keep the liquid to the sides/border.
3) Put yeast into the yeast compartment
4) Select menu ’2′ and press start

Now, K & I have made 3 bread loaves in this series of 3 recipes and you must be wondering if that is the only product the bread machine can be used for! Of course that is NOT the case – K & I stuck to bread loaves really because we had a clear objective of sharing only the fastest, easiest, most fuss-free recipes that anyone can replicate almost anywhere (office pantry anyone? :P ).
For those who would like to be abit more hands-on and don’t mind having some fun with flour on your kitchen top – the Panasonic SD-P104 Bread Maker has way more to offer! It can various types of doughs (make your own artisanal bread and rolls), chocolates, jams, cakes on top of other things. K & I have tried our hands on a few such recipes – approach us if you would like to know more :)

For the dessert course of our 3-course meal to our families, I thought to share a beautiful memory of Australia; it wasn’t hard at all for one dish to come to mind instantly – French Toast @ Chez Dre.

Brioche 1

Recipe (8 Slices of French Toast, 30minutes to prepare)
Teh Tarik Loaf, from above recipe – 1 loaf sliced into 8
Frozen mixed berries – 150g (alternatively, use fresh strawberries and blueberries)
Sugar – 30g
Cream - 100ml (alternatively, use marscapone)
Eggs – 2 large
Milk – 200ml
Salt - a pinch
Ground cinnamon, nutmeg, (optional) - a pinch
Vanilla Bean (optional) – 1/2 (alternatively, vanilla extract or essence)
Icing sugar - for garnish
Mint leaves – for garnish

1) Heat mixed berries and sugar over low-medium heat till fruits are soft but still intact. Leave berry compote to cool.
2) Beat together egg, milk, salt, desired spices and salt.
3) Dunk each slice of bread in egg mixture, soaking both sides. Pan-fry in lightly greased pan over medium-high heat on both sides until golden brown.
4) Whip cold cream till stiff
5) Serve hot toast with drizzle of maple syrup, portion of berry compote, dollop of whipped cream. Finish off with dust of icing sugar and mint leaf garnish.
Plating 2

Our interpretation of Teh Tarik French Toast inspired by Chez Dre. Toast was crispy on the outside and soft on the inside…add a scoop of vanilla ice cream if you’d like to indulge further!

Plating 1Dessert is served…Bon Appetit!

K & I are truly grateful for this opportunity landed on us by Panasonic –  it was unexpected and almost undeserved. Initially, we were shocked and unbelieving – later, we were filled with doubt as to whether we will have the time or energy to put in our best.
In retrospect, I think we gained more than just the pleasure of experimenting with a bread machine; it brought a lot of fun and laughter in the kitchen between K & I, and at times with our families. Above all
, it was good times sitting down with our families amidst good food.
