Ingredients
For the Bread
For the Topping
For the Glaze
Servings: loaf
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C (350 F) and lightly butter a bread pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the Bread dry ingredients. In a small bowl, mix together the Bread wet ingredients.
  3. Pour the wet into the dry and mix with a heavy spoon, no need for an electric mixer, easily done with a spoon.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared bread pan.
  5. In a small bowl, mix together the Topping ingredients. Use a spoon to sprinkle the mixture over the bread batter.
  6. Use a knife to make swirls through the batter to mix it in, about 1/3 deep into the batter.
  7. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, use the toothpick method to check for done. Insert a toothpick in the center and when it comes out clean, the bread is done.
  8. When the bread is done, remove from the oven, let cool for 15 minutes, then roll out of the pan to a rack to cool completely.
  9. While the bread is cooling, make the glaze using the powdered sugar and adding just a teaspoon of milk at a time to obtain the consistency you prefer.
  10. When the bread is completely cooled, pour the glaze over the top.
  11. Slice, serve, and enjoy.
Recipe Notes

Low cost.

Variant: 1. Add chopped walnuts and or raisins to taste to the batter before pouring into the bread pan, maybe some chopped walnuts on the top after you swirl in the topping.

I used to make this type of coffee cake when I was little and learning to cook. This sounds pretty close to what I made, and I tested this out on 2 Jan 2018 and yep, this is really close to what I made, it is excellent. Now there is a story to the photos, the photo of the batter in the pan with the topping before the oven, picture perfect, after I put it in the oven, about 10 minutes later, I realized I had not opened my new bottle of baking powder! Since this cake was for my mother in law's birthday, removed the pan from the oven, scraped out the contents for the compost pile and let the pan cool while I prepared a new batter and topping mix. As I was making the batter, my wife walks through the kitchen and says, mother in law likes very little sugar, so go easy on the topping. The second cake is the cooked photo, with little topping. Mother in law took one bite, instant thumbs up from her!

This is from a good American friend, Brian, who lives in northeastern Thailand, and he makes these often. Brian's words "Being that I live in Thailand, in a place that does not have a bakery around the corner, making my own hamburger buns allows me to enjoy a burger with a proper bun." And Brian is very correct, want a proper bun for a burger here, you have to make it yourself. I know Brian well, if he provides a recipe or shortcut to my site, he makes it often.

Ingredients
For the Buns

Servings: buns
Instructions
  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the yeast and 1/2 cup of the flour. Add the luke warm water and mix together. Let this set for 10-15 minutes or until the mixture is foamy and bubbly.
  2. To the flour mixture, add the egg, butter, sugar, salt, and whisk together until well combined.
  3. Add 2 1/2 cups of the flour. IF using a standup mixer, use the dough hook and kneed for 6-8 minutes, add flour as needed until the dough comes together and has come free of the sides of the bowl.
  4. IF mixing by hand, mix in the bowl until the dough comes together, adding flour as needed until the dough comes free from the sides of the bowl, turn out dough on a clean surface and kneed with hands for about 10 minutes, use flour as needed until the dough is tacky but comes free of the work surface.
  5. Oil a large bowl (large enough to allow the dough to double in size), and place the kneeded dough inside in the bowl, cover the bowl with a towel and set aside for about 2 hours to rise and double in size.
  6. Punch down the down and remove the dough from the bowl to a lightly floured work surface. Shape the dough into a rectangle or circle and cut into 8 equal size pieces. A pastry cutter works well, and a digital scale is a bonus to ensure you get equal sizes. Line a baking sheet with parchment or lightly flour just the sheet.
  7. Using floured hands, form each dough piece into a ball, then take each ball and form into a disk about 1/2 inch thick, place each disk on the baking sheet evenly spaced.
  8. Lightly flour the tops of the disks and cover with a towel. Let rise for an hour or until doubled in size.
  9. About 20 minutes before buns have risen, preheat your oven to 190 C (375 F).
  10. Whisk together the egg and milk. Remove the towel from the rolls and using a pastry brush, lightly coat the top of each bun. Sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired.
  11. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and place buns on a rack to cool.
  12. Enjoy!

Instructions
  1. In a saucepan or in the microwave, combine the milk and butter is just melted.
  2. Add the flour to a mixing bowl, add the salt, and pour in the milk and butter mixture. Mix with a wooden spoon until the dough comes together in a ball.
  3. Flour your work surface and turn out the dough, knead for a few minutes to make a smooth dough, add a bit of flour if the dough is too sticky. Wrap in plastic film and let rest at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  4. Flour the work surface, cut dough into 4 pieces, roll into balls, then roll each one out to about 1/8 inch thick.
  5. Heat 1/2 tablespoon of cooking oil in a non stick pan on medium heat or low for a heavy bottomed pan.
  6. When the pan is hot, place 1 flatbread in and cook for about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, it should puff up, just press those down with the spatula. Flip and cook the other side, there should be golden brown spots on both sides.
  7. Remove from the pan and place on a plate and cover with a towel. Repeat the steps cooking the rest, staking each on on the same plate.
  8. Use with fillings of your choice for a lunch or light dinner.
Recipe Notes

Low cost.

Variants: Brush each flatbread with olive oil or melted butter. Or with melted butter mixed with minced garlic and parsley for a garlic butter version. Higher heat and thinner dough (say cut the dough into 5 or 6 pieces) will result in crispier bread, which is compatible as a naan type of bread.

Vegan Version: Replace the butter with olive oil, replace the milk with almond milk.

Ingredients
Servings: pita breads
Instructions
  1. Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup of warm water. Add the sugar and stir until dissolved. Let sit for 10 to15 minutes until water is frothy.
  2. Combine flour and salt in a large bowl. Make a small depression in the middle of the flour and pour yeast water mixture into it.
  3. Slowly add 1 cup of warm water, and stir with wooden spoon or rubber spatula until elastic.
  4. Place dough on a floured surface and knead for 10 to 15 minutes. When the dough is no longer sticky and is smooth and elastic, it is done.
  5. Coat a large bowl with vegetable oil and place dough into the bowl. Turn dough upside down so all of the dough is coated. Allow to sit in a warm place for about 3 hours, or until it has doubled in size.
  6. Once doubled, roll out in a rope, and pinch off 10 to 12 small pieces, just smaller than a tennis ball. Place balls on floured surface. Let sit covered with a towel for 10 minutes.
  7. Heat oven to 500 F and make sure rack is at the very bottom of the oven, and heat the your baking sheet as well.
  8. Roll out each ball of dough with a rolling pin into circles. Each should be about 5 to 6 inches across and 1/4 inch thick.
  9. Bake each circle for 4 minutes until the bread puffs up. Turn over and bake for 2 more minutes.
  10. Remove each pita with a spatula from the baking sheet and place on a wire rack.
  11. While still warm, take a spatula and gently push down on each puff. When they are thoroughly cool, place in storage bags.
  12. Pita bread can be stored for up to 1 week in a pantry or bread box or up to a month in the freezer.

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C. Lightly grease a baking sheet with butter.
  2. Lightly flour your work surface. Unroll one can of crescent rolls on your work surface (if using the shortcut, roll out one half). Using your hands, press the seams together and lightly press and stretch a little into a nice rectangle.
  3. Add a layer of cheese, can be sliced or shredded, then then add your layer of cooked bacon. Unroll the remaining can of crescent rolls on top & press all the seems together both on top and all around the edges.
  4. Using a pizza cutter or a knife slice into squares. Place the entire thing on your baking sheet using a large spatula, working in batches. Lay all the squares right beside each other, just as they were before you sliced it. You want all the cut seams to be touching so that your cheese doesn’t leak out.
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the top of the crescent rolls are lightly browned. Remove from the oven ans cool on a wire rack for 3-5 minutes before digging in. The crescent squares will pull right apart. Serve and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

I cannot price this until I find out how many servings this will make, for now I will say this is a fair value dish based on just the cheese and bacon used.

Variants: Use cooked crumbled sausage or even just ground beef.

  2. Place one pie crust in a pie dish, pour the berry mixture into the dish. For the top crust, you can do this several ways, one complete crust on the top with a few slits cut in it, a lattice top, or use different shape cookie cutters and place the cutouts on the top. Mix together the egg and a tablespoon of water and brush this on the top crust.
  3. Bake for about 50 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Cool on a wire rack before cutting to maintain the shape.

I cannot price this until I purchase the berries. For 8 servings I will say for now this is low cost.

  • 1 pie crust frozen, OR make from a shortcut on this site, unbaked
For the Filling
For the Topping
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 230 C.
  2. To make the topping, combine all of the topping ingredients in a bowl and use a fork to mix completely, set aside.
  3. To make the filling, peal, core and slice the apples to about 1/8 inch slices then toss the slices with the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and flour. Layer the slices into the unbaked pie crust, it will be full and heaping, any leftover juices from the apples, pour that over the apple slices as well. Now pile on the topping and pat it down a bit over the apples.
  4. Set the pie dish on a cookie sheet in case of overflows, and bake for 15 minutes, then reduce the temp to 180 C and continue to bake for another 45 minutes. If the topping is browning too much, place a sheet of foil over the top. Run a butter knife through the center at the 45 minute mark, it should insert easily indicating all the apples are cooked through. Removed from the oven and serve warm or room temp. Ice cream or whipped cream on top would be a nice touch.
