Indonesia Layer Cake with Prune Recipe

You will never understand my feeling, the feeling of excitement and satisfactory once I had successfully baked this cake. Indonesia layer cake is my favorite cake since I was young, same to my family. We used to order this cake from my father's friend, who married a Medan wife and make a very nice layer cake. Year after year, the price getting more and more expensive but we still buy from them especially during Chinese New Year. I made this few years ago and ended up with throw everything into dustbin due to the super "compress" and oily layer. Waste lot of eggs, ingredients, $$ and many hours of baking time. If you never hear of this cake, let me briefly explain about it. It is an Indonesia cake, also called kuih lapis legit,

 

Happy Mooncake Festival from MnYfoodtalk

It has been a while since our last update in MnYfoodtalk, it is mainly due to our webpage was corrupted recently (thanks to the previous lousy web hosting company). All the posts were gone and we had to re-build and re-publish all the posts as we do not have a backup for our posts. During the downtime of our webpage, the poor service from the previous web hosting company was really dissapointed us and make us mad. Hence we had decided to change to new hosting company as they provide a better service to us. The two hosting companies did make a big different in providing services to their customers. For instance, the way they reply our requests did make a big different, you can't imagine how a service company can reply an email to their customers in a rude way and blame that the fault is from customers themselves. In fact we knew that was the improper server configuration that brought us all the nightmare and here we have no intention to blame any party, but the rude and irresponsible way of servicing customer from the previous hosting company had changed our mind in continuing to host under their company. So far, we are pretty happy with current web hosting company. One lesson learnt here, BACKUP YOUR BLOG OFTENLY!

 

3 Layer Electric Mini Rice Cooker

I bought a mini rice cooker lately, although I have slow cooker, rice cooker and some other types of cookers, I still decided to buy this mini rice cooker, reason is to cook baby porridge in faster and easier way. I had tried to use slow cooker to cook porridge, it took about 3 hours to get ready. Product description: 3 layer cooker come with timer, can cook rice, porridge and baby porridge. The timer function is very useful as we can set it to start cook at preferable time. I first try to cook lunch for Camus and myself before start to use it cook for baby. This is the first meal I cooked with the new cooker, ready marinate beef bought from AEON, steam pumpkin and rice. Simple meal enough for two. Second try with baby porridge, less than 1 hour to get it done, easy to clean too. You can manually set the time to cook longer or shorter (default setting at 55 minutes for baby porridge). Avocado with sweet potato baby porridge I did re-heat baby porridge for dinner too, by changing the setting to cook for 12 minutes. In summary, I really love this mini rice cooker with it's timer, easy to clean, easy to carry and fast to cook functions.

 

Plain Cheesecake | Baked with Rice Cooker

Cake can be baked in several ways, by using an oven which is the most common way. I knew that cake can be steamed with gas as well. But have you ever tried to bake a cake with rice cooker? Basically I do not hear people in our country bake with rice cooker, and I was surprised to see a book that introduces how to bake a cake with rice cooker. Without further consideration, I bought the book.

Nakao_8Are you looking for something cheap in Japan? Of course, the “something” here means FOOD. Well, I think most of the people know that dining in Japan is not cheap, but if you are good in dig hole (korek lubang), you can actually get a cheap meal too. One of the “hole” I found is to walk around “super market” (I used to call those convenient market/mini market/super market hampalang (all) as super market), most of the “super market” selling bento 弁当 (lunch box). When come to certain time, few hours before the food is expired, they will have discount on the bento. Grab one!

PepperLunch_12It is now a Hanami season in Japan (during March and April) and for many Japanese, this is the best time of year. The cherry blossom (sakura) trees all over Japan come in to bloom for about seven to ten days. This is also a great time for people to hold outdoor parties to view the sakura. The name “Hanami” says it all, hana means “flower” and mi is “to look”.
