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,

 

Baked Mooncake Recipe 公仔饼/猪仔饼

My mother usually will buy home made mooncake (gong zai bing) from her friend every year. This year her friend does not make the mooncake to sell, so we make it ourself. It is not difficult to make this gong zai bing, we get ingredients and recipe from one of the ingredient shop in Penang. The sales person recommended us to use pure peanut oil as our cooking oil is not a pure peanut oil, they added a kind of essence to make cooking oil. I do not know how true it is, but from the price, they have so much difference in "real" peanut oil (RM11 for 500g) compare to our cooking oil. We also bought cake flour from her to make the mooncake but according to her, any medium protein flour will do. Recall back last year, I used low protein flour to make gong zai bing. Golden syrup is expensive too, RM11.50 for 1kg.  Ingredients:500ml golden syrup200ml peanut oil15ml lye water700g medium protein flour/cake flour Method:1. Mix golden syrup, peanut oil and lye water in big bowl until combine.2. Sift in flour and mix until combine. Do not overmix to prevent mixture become hard.3. Cover bowl and leave for 6 hours or overnight. (compare with my last year recipe, which need to leave for 2 hours only, the sales person said 6 hours will let the flour absorb oil/golden syrup fully and give the mooncake better taste)4. Preheat oven at 180C for half an hour.5. Divide dough to 40g each and roll it round, lightly press with palm to flatten it.6. Bake in oven (fan-forced) for 12 mins or until cooked. The gong zai bing smell and taste really good after baked. It is best to keep and consume after 3 days, as when the biscuit just out from oven, the texture is not soft yet. I will keep this recipe for future use. The same recipe can be used to make traditional mooncake (wrap with filling) too. To make piggy mooncake, follow here: Before I end this post, MnYfoodtalk would like to wish everyone a very Happy Mooncake Festival!

 

James Foo Western Food | Tanjong Tokong Penang

James Foo western food is located in Tanjung Tokong Penang. I have heard of it's popularity since years ago, but have not find a chance to try it. Last two weeks, we have decided to go there for dinner. Without disappointment, we are quite satisfied with the food, on the portion and taste. We ordered steak without mentioned on how well we want the beef to be cooked. When the steak was served, we were surprised to see the steak was medium well cooked. We can still see blood came out from the beef, it was yummy.

Last Friday, we had lunch there for the third times. We arrived there earlier to avoid disappointment as that day sells Nasi Lemak. According to the boss, their nasi lemak start at 12pm and selling very fast. You can pre-order by phone or please arrive earlier.

You will see "Nasi Lemak" labeling plate put on all tables if that day sells nasi lemak, RM5 per plate. It came with 2 small prawns, half egg, balacan fried chicken, fried big ikan bilis and coconut rice. Balacan chicken is very delicious, while fried ikan bilis tasted sweet, it was very tasty too.

For fried "tang hun", it was really nice too. Fried onion was sprinkle on top and hence bring more fragrance to the "tang hun". The "tang hun" do not stick together, and we believed that's the skill of chef, as to fry a delicious "tang hun" is not an easy task! This plate costs RM5.50.

Hi Sharon, sad to hear that you met this kind of service. I understand your feeling as I also hate people treat me like this. But during the time we visited, they served us ok. Hopefully their service can improve and treat everyone the same. :cheer:

I know it is acceptable to be served a little bit late as there's so much customers. But we had already ask for menu, but the service staff is ignoring us. Not only this, they serve those who comes later, they take order from them but we come earlier not even get our menu. One of the service staff saw us walk away he didn't even ask but ask another new couple to sit at our table. So is it meaning that you have plenty of customers even lost one or two also never mind? what kind of service is this?
