Manneken Belgium Waffle | Japan

I love to eat waffle especially when the waffle just comes out hot from waffle maker and waffle with peanut butter is always my first choice. I have even tried to make my own waffle with my sister in law's waffle maker which bought from Cosway. My homemade waffle didn't turn out as good as those sell outside. To me, good waffle should be crunchy outside and soft inside. Of course the taste should be delicious too. Recently, I get to know about Belgium Waffle after my first try in Osaka Railway Station, Japan. The strong fragrance from the waffle store caught our attention. We bought a piece of plain waffle which costs 126 yen (about RM4.50). The Belgium waffle was very crunchy and tasted heavenly!  

 

Sibu Kampua Mee 寺巫干盘面

Being a Malaysian, I am a bit(yes, a bit only) shy to say that I have never been to Sarawak. I give myself an excuse that it is too far away from my lovely hometown, Penang island. The air ticket is quite expensive to travel from here to there. But, I think that I am lucky enough to know a friend from Sarawak, which willing to share with us the recipe of their local famous food, Kampua mee ("Gam Mua" noodle (干盘面)). Kampua mee is from Sibu and it is Fuzhou (福州) food. My first impression about Kampua was it almost same as dry Wan Tan Mee (干云吞面), as the sauce is black in colour and it is dry mee. Well, look at the recipe and cooking method, let's compare the differences.

 

Steamed Caramel Banana Cake Recipe

I have overcome another fear on handling caramel last weekend. This steamed caramel banana cake gave me a good practice on cooking caramel as well as steaming a cake. I always afraid the caramel will stick on my pan when it turn brown, but thank God that I have successfully cook it nicely and no burning sugar stick on my pan. Since it is a steamed cake, it's texture is similar to huat kuih/fatt koh发糕. If make it into cupcake, it is just like huat kuih发糕. When my mom ate this, she said it is malai ko马来糕. With her comment, she gave me inspiration to bake malai ko next time.

 

Kaya Jam Recipe Using Breadmaker

Ingredients:1 cup Coconut milk1 cup Eggs(about 3-4 eggs)1 cup sugarFew pieces of pandan leaves Method:1. Pour all ingredients into breadmaker.(I like this recipe as it calls for 1 cup of each ingredient, so I can use the coconut milk box to measure sugar and eggs, just follow the proportion) 2. Select "Jam" function from breakmaker.3. Start jam making by press on "Start" button.4. Stir in between to ensure jam is well mixed (If needed).5. When done, remove kaya from breadmaker after it is slightly cool. Blend if you prefer soft and smooth texture. When taste, it is more towards "egg" taste, hence Camus added caramel to the kaya, and now it is almost similar to mom's version. Give this recipe a try, the outcome of this kaya will surprise you! Thanks to thelazychef for this wonderful recipe, you can find more tips from here.

Durian_7June of year 2011 is the best time to indulge durians, the King of Fruits. Compare to past few years, this year durian's harvest is better and hence the price is predicted to drop week after week. (Hope my prediction is correct!)

Last weekend we had an outing visiting durian farm at Genting, Balik Pulau, Penang. It is the farm of my dad's friend. On our way to the farm, I saw many stores selling durians at roadside. The durian's aromatic scent awakened my groggy head.

After half an hour journey, full with excitement, we had arrived at the farm. I grabbed the opportunity to take photos of variety fruits tree to show my "city niece". At the age of 8 years old, her life is more bussier than mine with tuition class, art class, piano lesson, swimming lesson, english course, math course...and she has never been to durian farm hence has no sense about what is "kampung life", the life of nature.

I will continue to hunt for durians until the end of durian season, despite the fact that I gained some weight already since last month. Before I end my writing, I want to say "Durian, I Love You!".

Wow, that durian looks so good! I once went to a durian plantation in Penang too early ( may) and didn't get to see or eat a lot of durians. I probably should go back now!

By the way, Fleur de Sel is a gourmet salt- the crystals of which look like a flower. If you can't find this, just use normal salt.
