"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.

 

Mother's Homemade Kaya Jam Recipe

I have this homemade kaya recipe from my mother while she made kaya jam last Sunday. The ingredients used are very simple but I was impressed with her patient during the cooking process. It was really time consuming to make the delicious kaya. You need to stir the mixture continuously during the cooking process in order to get the smooth texture kaya. If this time consuming version does not suit you, go for this version, which only required less than 30 minutes to get your kaya jam ready.

 

Kobe Beef and Kobe One Day Trip

After Kobe trip with wonderful kobe beef dinner on 3 years back, I have another chance to visit Kobe again to enjoy world's famous beef steak. From forum and internet, travellers' feedback on kobe beef lunch cannot beat dinner set. With previous experience which Camus and myself will never forget in our life, I decided to give lunch a try and then make a comparison between set lunch and set dinner. I did some survey before go for kobe beef lunch, Wakkoqu restaurant has many good review. So my plan is to visit this restaurant. We arrived at Sannomiya station on that day before 12pm and would like to have short walk around that area before go for lunch. When we just arrived at Sannomiya Hankyu Station, we saw a long queue outside another kobe beef restaurant. We walked closer to look at the menu, the price is more cheaper compare with Wakkoqu. I believed it has some good reasons why people queue for the meal. We followed the queue and had our kobe beef steak lunch. The restaurant I mentioned here is Steak Land. We were arranged to dine at second floor, they served in tepanyaki style and guests were sitted around the table while the chef will cook and serve at center area. After put order, they served us salad, miso soup, steak sauce and plain water. When they brought two big pieces of beef (for 4 serving) to the table, I was regretted with my decision made. By looking at the kobe beef, it looks not fresh with brown in colour. Oh no, my main target for this trip gone. I had to stop blaming myself at that moment and pray hard that the beef will turn out good in taste. Compare with previous kobe beef dinner, I had to agreed that lunch is really not as good as dinner. After looking at how the chef cook the steak (obviously not as "proffesional" as our kobe beef dinner's chef), I started to enjoy my meal. I changed my mind after my first bite on the medium cook kobe beef, it was still soooooo soft and melt in mouth. With 2980yen for this set lunch, I can say I was satisfied with it at this price. Of course, if you aim for better quality and environment, I would recommend Mouriya Restaurant which we went for dinner. After the lunch, we proceeded with our trip at Kobe area. We walked from Sannomiya to China Town, then to Harbourland. Then end our one day trip at Kobe. I wish to return again for next Kobe beef romantic dinner with my dear Camus.

 

Sugar Paste Cup Cake

I wanted to bake mini cup cake since long time ago. At first, my plan is to bake him a car cake since he likes to play with cars. But from his  respond, he prefer airplane, and sometime motorbike. What he likes the most is Mickey Mouse! But he had Mickey cake on last year birthday, we "reject" his request and ask him choose for others. So, in my final decision, I decided to bake him cup cakes with all those things on top.

CoffeeSpongeThis cake is specially dedicated to an OLD baby boy that was born on 67 years ago, exactly 33 years earlier than my OLD baby Camus. Now, the OLDer baby has diabetes and cannot consume much sugar. Everytime I bake a cake, he will complain that my cake is tooooooooo sweet. To cater for his needs, I change my chiffon cake recipe to low sugar version, I choose coffee flavour because... besides my mummy, the one that he cannot let go and cannot survive without is COFFEE...and yes, the "he" I mentioned here is my lovely daddy!

It has been long time I want to come out with low sugar version cake, pastry, and etc, and being lazy is my natural instinct. Dad's birthday is a good reason for me to start my low sugar recipe.

Ingredients
5 egg yolks (about 85g)
10g sugar
75g hot water + 10g instant coffee (mix well)
1tbsp coffee paste
70g corn oil
120g cake flour

5 egg whites (about 200g)
45g sugar
1/2tsp cream of tartar

Method (step by step picture here)
1. Add sugar into egg yolks, immediately whisk with hand whisk until pale and light.
2. Add in corn oil, mix well.
3. Add in coffee water and coffee paste, mix well.
4. Sift in flour, stir until well combined. You will get a thick mixture now.
5. Whisk egg white with electrical hand mixer at low speed until big bubbles form, add in cream of tartar.
6. Continue whisk from medium to high speed until small bubbles form (egg white is foamy and white in color now).
7. Slowly add in sugar in few badges, continue whisk at high speed until soft peak formed.
8. Add 1/3 of meringue into egg yolk mixture, mix gently with hand whisk until well combined. You will get a light mixture.
9. Change hand whisk to rubber spatula, fold in 1/2 of the remaining meringue. GENTLY fold with egg yolks batter until 50% combined (you will still see white meringue now).
10. Add all remaining meringue and fold GENTLY with spatula again until well combined (your mixture should be very light and volume now).
11. Pour batter into chiffon pan. Using satay stick / chopstick, run around baking pan side and then draw curly pattern all the way in the middle and bang pan on counter top to remove big bubbles. Level the surface and bake in preheated oven at 160C with fan forced for 45 minutes or until cooked.
12. When cooked, remove from oven and invert chiffon pan immediately to prevent shrinkage. The pan must remain inverted until fully cool.
13. To remove chiffon cake from pan, carefully run the pan outer, inner and bottom side with thin spatula or knife. Invert pan to remove cake on big serving plate.

At first I was afraid the cake will shrink after reduce half of the sugar quantity, but I am very happy to see the cake turn out very nice. For taste wise, my dad able to accept this sweetness level by finished 1~2 pieces of the cake. Even though the level of sweetness has reduce, but the coffee fragrance did brought me a "Yes, delicious!" comment from all the other family members.
