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.    

 

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,

 

Sweet Hut, Dessert House | Kuchai Lama, Kuala Lumpur

I am a dessert LOVER, it brings me happiness. That's the reason why I love baking.Due to this reason, we visited one dessert house "Sweet Hut" at Kuchai Lama. We ordered a set of dessert cost RM22.

Fried Bihun (Rice-flour Noodles) | Home Cook

"Firstly, put some oil, when the oil is hot, put in chopped garlic, follow by prawn or meat, after the meat is about to cook, put in bihun, then put......".   Standing in the kitchen and watching at mom frying bihun seems to be easy, step by step instructions were taught by this lovely mom to her daughter who does not know how to cook well. Her daughter forgot what her mom taught after walk out from the kitchen. And yes, the "daughter" here refers to me! But I am very thankful to have a great mom who can cook very delicious meals for her husband and children. Questions of "What to eat later? Where to eat?..." do not come across me as I have a great mom who will prepare lunch and dinner for us every day. However, this is no longer applicable to me during the time I stay alone at outstation. I have to cook and eat on my own.

IMG_20130702_093122Coffee, has taken away my heart. Sometime it make me happy, sometime it make me high, but sometime it make my heart pumping at wrong frequency. I wish I can drink it everyday, with a set of toast spread with kaya, together with 2 half boil eggs without pepper and soy sauce, so I can have the pure egg taste, to welcome my day! Coffee, contains caffein that has stimulating effects, is not good to consume daily. Being addicted to coffee recently, I decided to continue addict to it at this moment. Last weekend, we visit a cafe located at Raja Uda, to try their Affogato. We arrived there in the morning at 11am but they have not starting their business yet. We come back later at 2pm, at this time the shop is empty, but after we put an order, more and more people coming in for their tea break.

Coffee formula

Besides coffee, they serve other beverage too. We ordered this Affogato, an espresson with vanilla ice cream. Espresso is very bitter but when you eat with ice cream, it is sooooooo gooooooooood...I love it! The snow man ice cream is too cute and innocent to kill by me, but he died meaningful as he changed Ms. Bitter Espresso life become sweet at the end.

Birdy style Affogato (RM8.90)

Macchiato (马车倒), what a pantang name for this coffee? A bitter coffee, which is espresso with milk form is good too, small in cup. Coffee art seems like telling you his bitter life as a teddy bear...

Macchiato (RM7)

They are famous with waffles too, we had this waffle with peanut butter and nuts as topping. To me, it is a bit too dry. I should try their waffle with ice-cream topping.
