A quick review back to Mak and Abah’s visit here last year. After all this while of looking at the breads I’ve been baking, I finally got a chance to have them taste my home made breads. Here’s Abah and Mak’s introduction to one of Vin’s favorite breads, Raisin Orange Bread.
While I was making this bread, Abah was running around wondering when he would get to eat it! After all, with bread baking you have to knead the dough, let it rise, then shape the loaf and let it rise again (that’s about the average way to bake bread, with 2 risings). Without the rising, the yeast won’t make the bread nice and fluffy! Then after all this, the bread has to go in the oven to bake. Abah was just about ready to give up on the bread when it finally got out of the oven.

And Abah said, can we eat it yet? And the answer was No! We have to glaze it first.
So we glazed the bread with the orange glaze:
And Abah said again. Can we eat it yet? The answer was No! We have to let it cool. Then finally, we got to slice the bread:

Then Abah said again. Can we eat it yet? And the answer was, Makan Time!!!

In fact, Abah liked this bread so much he ate it for breakfast every day while it lasted. And even once for dinner. Abah had bread for dinner, and Vin ate rice with sambal tumis daging. Who’s the orang putih here, huh??
