Experiment: The Indomie Bread Recipe

So for a while, I’ve wanted to play with a bread machine. Well, we got one. We could have bought one brand new and had it in a day or two off of Amazon, but my friend Matt is very proud of the machine he got from a Goodwill Thrift store,  and I decided that was the kind I wanted as well. We went to three one day, and then a fourth the second day. In this particular scenarion, fourth time was the charm and we found a Toastmaster 1.5lb loaf bread machine for $12.99 in Redmond, Washington – home of Microsoft and a particularly fancy Goodwill store.

Bread and instant noodles doesn’t sound like an apt combination, but here we are. Here is the recipe we tried and our results. I will say I’m happy with the results – a dense and moist loaf with a nice crust – and very good flavor. It’s exactly as advertised, folks – it’s a loaf of bread made with Indomie – and it tastes like Indomie.

I should mention that the recipe is adapted from the one that came with the bread machine for white bread. We used it as a guideline and made a couple of tweaks. If you’ve got a bread machine, give it a try!

We did a full video on what we did here, but the full recipe is below as well as detailed imagery of the result.

#3976: Mamee Monster x Daebak Ghost Pepper Mie Goreng Indonesia - Malaysia

Why am I doing this to myself today… Okay so let me start out by saying it’s been one heck of a week. A couple of days ago was the 1 year anniversary of my Mom passing, so in her honor I thought I’d walk south on the local interurban trail the farthest ever. Well, 16.5 miles of walking and it’s 2 days later and I’m pretty much crippled from it – my dogs aren’t barking, they’re run over. So that’s a bummer of course – I like to pull 10 miles a day minimum and don’t think I’m even doing any today as well as yesterday… So sure – let’s try the challenge of something ultra spicy and see what happens. Here we go! ...see full post

#3957: Kung Fu Noodles Premium Black Sesame Oil With Smashed Ginger - Taiwan

I’ve heard of crushed ginger, but smashed? I really like that – smash! Oh wait – my eyes deceive me. It’s actually mashed ginger. I immediately think of a big hot bowl of mashed potatoes. I wonder what it would be like – eating a bowl of piping hot mashed ginger with a little butter, salt, and pepper? That would be heavy duty. Anyways, here we have what looks to be a nice Taiwanese dry noodle. Let’s check it out! ...see full post
