Indonesia Layer Cake with Cranberries Recipe

When I looked back my post on Hawflakes Layer Cake, I just realised that it has been more than one year since I last baked my Indonesia layer cake. I bought a can of butter for baking layer cake and kept until it was expired. I quickly grab it to bake for my next Indonesia Layer Cake with Cranberry. This time, I follow exactly the recipe in my blog too, with slight modification, I change the filling to cranberries. For my hawflakes and prune layer cake, I managed to bake a total of 8 layers cake but for this one, I get only 7 layers. It was still very delicious and as good as last two cakes! I spent less than 3 hours for this cake. You can substitude cranberries with raisins too if you like as the taste of cranberries in this cake taste very similar to raisins. Recipe here: (more picture can refer here) Ingredients: 340g tinned butter180g icing sugar (sifted)1tbsp sweet condensed milk 12 egg yolk1/2tsp vanilla essense1tbsp brandy (optional) 100g plain flour (sifted together with mixed spice)1.5tsp mixed spice 4 egg white Some cranberry and red colouring Method: 1.

Apom | Wai Sek Kai 喂食街| Chai Leng Park, Perai

If you like to eat something sweet after dinner, this Ah Pom that located at Lebuh Kurau 5 (Wai Sek Kai喂食街), Chai Leng Park is a good choice for them. The stall that selling Ah Pom is owned by a Chinese auntie; she operated this business for more than 20 years. For those who stay surrounding Chai Leng Park should be know about this Ah Pom. Previously, she was selling the Ah Pom at Chai Leng Park market during morning and at Wai Sek Kai (Wai Sek Kai喂食街) at night. Since I was kid (5~6years old), I like it very much already. May be you will ask me "What's so special?", because you can find Ah Pom/Apom/Apong anyway. I can tell you here, the taste is totally different compared to other Indian style Ah Pom/Apom/Apong.

 

Xuan Feng Ramen Restaurant | Krystal Point, Penang

If talk about my favourite Japanese food, ramen is one of them, especially tonkotsu ramen, tan tan ramen and many more. In Penang, there are not many restaurant selling this ramen, at least I can't recall any restaurant that selling it. If you know, I will be happy if you willing to share with me. Xuan Feng restaurant was opened on last year end. I was so excited when my colleague informed me they serve tonkotsu ramen. I get to know this ramen during my stay in Japan, the soup was cooked with pork bone (of course with other ingredients too) for long hours, hence you will get a very thick and sweet soup base. On last year, colleagues celebrated my birthday at Xuan Feng. I was satisfied with their tonkotsu ramen.

 

Sarawak Laksa Recipe

A pack of Sarawak laksa paste was brought back from my Sarawak colleague since 1 year ago. It was kept in my kitchen cabinet over a year until it hits the expiry date. At first I was thinking to throw away the paste after few months of expiry but at the end I just cook it as do not want to waste this "imported" laksa paste. To cook Sarawak Laksa is easy but you need to prepare lots of stuffs. From cooking chicken soup until cutting vegetables and remove prawn shell, that was enough to occupy my one whole morning. But everything is so worth when I saw everyone is enjoying this imported and special Sarawak laksa that was cooked by Camus and myself.

181_5"We Share What We Have.....", this is a slogan of 181 Open House, a coffee house located at Juru, Penang. The coffee house open in July 2012 and operate by a Chinese couple of husband and wife. It was renovated from bungalo type double story old house at Juru Village, and "181" is plat number of their house.

Before that, we have passed by the coffee house for many times, but could not get a chance to dine in there. Last weekend, we managed to visit them and had our lunch there.

181

The coffee house is fully decorated by the owners, with mural painting, owner's photography, books for reading, chairs made by newspaper, coca-cola cans collection, coffee makers/cups collection and others. We believed most of the things are recycled, even coffee cups are all different in "design". They also made efford to plant some plantation outside the house, giving a more comfortable environment to their customers. Other than decorations, music also plays an important role in bringing out the relaxing environment.

For food, they have different menu for lunch daily. Besides, they also serve coffee and cakes too. Cheesecakes are homemade by the wife. Since it was lunch time, we ordered one Chicken Teriyaki and one Chinese Herbal Chicken Soup. Both are served with vegetable and egg. When the foods are served, the owner remind us that no MSG was added, so we can finish up the all the dishes including soup without worry.

The herbal soup cames with drumstick, we like it as it tasted like mother's home cook soup, healthy and delicious.

As for Chicken Teriyaki, it tasted not bad too but I would prefer chicken with bone. I believed for many people, eating chicken or fish without bone is easier but for me, chicken without bone is like missing something on it.

181_2

We truly feel the efford made by both the owners to bring out relax and comfortable environment to their customers. We as customer and food blogger, sincerely wish their coffee house business is booming. We do wish to return for their cheese cake and coffee in near future!

The coffee house is located inside Juru Village and not facing any main road, hence to locate it is not so easy for those who are not familiar with Juru area. Below is their address and contact number, we suggest you to give them a call first before proceed to this place. They open daily but on Sunday, they serve dessert and beverage only. You will find plenty of car park space in front of the coffee house too. For more info on their menu, please visit their blog.
