But I think it's a bit unsafe to eat something expired unless you cook it --> Hahaha theory mana lah ni belajar. Anyway the bread still looks good. A tip here, keep your bread in fridge, the spores or fungus or whatever green greyish thing won't come out right after the expiry date. I guess the fridge helps to prolong the bread's lifetime. Maybe :P
Btw, I strongly believe it still can be eaten so I decided to make bengkang roti / bingka roti. It's something like bread pudding but it's not, it's more to Malay sweet delicacies. You know binka ubi? Yes, it is that type of kueh, only you use bread instead of tapioca.
The thing is, I never make it even once in my life. I have a picture of it can be done and the ingredient, but I wasn't very sure. After all, apa lah yang andes pernah masak pun kan? ;)
So I rang up my mom all the way for that simple ingredients, tsk tsk tsk
Me: Ma! Ada roti expired, nak buat bengkang, mcm mana eh?
Mom: Ala..letak tepung gandum, pastu santan, boleh ganti ngan susu, telur sebiji, jgn lupa gula, agak2 lah
Me: Hmm..tepung gandum byk mana?
Mom: Ada banyak ke roti?
Me: Ada la dlm 4-5 keping
Mom: Letak setengah cawan cukup la
Me: Susu letak susu apa2 pun boleh?
Mom: Letak susu apa pun boleh.. Mama kadang2 letak je susu pekat manis tu. Jgn lupa tambah gula. Pastu tau kan macam mana mama buat, pernah tengok kan.
Me: OK! Tau. Nnt along try.
So dengan bersemangatnya I took out the bread from fridge and gave it a close look for any suspiscious faces. Tear it into pieces, and whip out the sauce.
The expired yeast. I made this last Saturday (14 feb) so it means already 6 dayyyysss expired. Don't follow this if you aren't sure. In my case, I am very sure it is safe hehehe
I whisked the flour with milk (I use HL low fat milk, smallest pack) and 1 big organic egg until it reaches into some consistency.
Pour the sauce into the torn bread, press it and leave it for a while untill the sauce is fully absorbed (about 10 minutes or so)
After 10 minutes in the oven, me head get knocked-off by something invisible that I yelled "OMG! LUPA LETAK GULA!!!"
OMG. Seriously, how come I missed the sugaaarrr. Obviously this is a sweeeeeet kueh. How to be sweet then? And it is almost cooked already, too late for a little sprinkle of sugar.
MrComot: Ish ish sayang ni, baru tadi me cakap you jadi Rachel Ray, kalau Rachel Ray tengok ni, mesti dia kecewa
Uwaaaaaaa... my mission to impress him is failed *sob sob*
Nevermind I calm myself, we'll see the outcome. Right after the oven "ringgggggggg" I quickly took it out (and I burned my finger sob sob) and slice it and tiup-tiup (because it is freaking hot, of course la *sigh*) and pop it into my mouth.
And YES, it spells DEL.ICI.OUS! Only it is a bit on 'tawar' taste. Ehh..it's not that tawar actually because the bread already has its own taste and so the milk. So ada macam distinctive taste of sweetness gitu. Buuuuut, still failed as a real bingka roti la T_T
Also of course failed to be eaten just as it is. It will be like pancake without the sauce. Why whining, we need to improvise right?
Hehehe.. Ok Ok I'm just so surprised how well it turned out. MrComot like it very much though. Even one of my colleague also said SEDAPNYA! without being asked ok ;)
(of course I didn't give the failed expriment to him, malu lah kan but he took it from my tupperware ok - I brought to the office as bekal :P)
I planned to do this accident-recipe again (and of course without the sugar!) but will throw in some raisins for sweet version and chunk sausages with pepperoni for savoury version.
Hmmmmmm Y-U-M-M-Y !! And it is E-A-S-Y P-E-A-S-Y !!
