181 Open House | Juru Village 柔府新村, Penang

"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.

 

Kuro Goma Ice Cream | Japan Yokohama

During our visit to Japan Yokohama China Town, we noticed a black colour ice cream. It is now winter season in Japan, but the cold weather does not stop us from trying this unfamiliar colour ice cream. It is a black sesame flavour ice cream which cost 260 yen. Kuro means black and Goma means sesame in Japanese.              

 

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.

Japan Mini Red Apple | 日本ミニりんご

I saw a very cute mini red apple when I am shopping in OIOI shopping complex last weekend. I was looking for various kind of fruits at that time and unexpectedly I saw those mini apples. I was so excited and thinking to buy it but at the end I walked back with empty hands as we were too hungry and rushing for dinner. I was regretted for not buying the mini apples and keep thinking on the cute apple for few days.

For about 1 year, I have no chance to bake a fresh cream cake. Now, I am back to my little kitchen to bake something. Yeh! First fresh cream cake I baked this year for my lovely niece four years old birthday celebration, and I baked a fruit cheese cake for her.

 

 

 

 

Here is the recipe for the fruit cheese cake.

Ingredients:

Sponge Cake

300g               sponge cake mix

5                      eggs

75ml               water

75ml               melted butter / corn oil

Filling:

~                     Mixes fruits (choose your own desired fruits; I used half tin of peach and 1 mango. Quantity is depending on personal desired as well.)

Peach

Decoration:

300ml             fresh cream (whipped)

some              fruit slices

Method:

Sponge Cake:

1. Put sponge cake mix and eggs into a mixing bowl, stir the mixture lightly until sponge cake mix and eggs are mixed.

2. Pour in water and use electrical mixer to beat the mixture in low speed. This is to ensure that the eggs and water are mix well.

3. Turn to high speed and mix until the mixture is light and fluffy, normally about 5 min~9 min depending on flour and type of mixture you use.

4. When the mixture is light and fluffy, turn to low speed and add in oil/melted butter slowly. Make sure the oil and the mixture are mix well, or else you will see two separate layer on your cake which are “oil layer” and “cake layer” when the cake is baked.

5. Pour the mixture into 8inch cake tin and bake at 180ºC for about 30 minutes. Remove from oven when it is baked.

6. Remove the cake from cake tin after 5 min.

Filling:

1. Beat cream cheese and caster sugar with hand whisk until smooth.

I use electrical mixer, beat until it is firm and if mixing bowl inverted,the cream won't flow out. But take care do not over beat.

Hi JJ, I used sponge cake mix that bought from ingredient shop. Just tell them you want sponge cake mix. It is normally pack in 500g or 1kg packing. Get one and normally it comes with recipe, just follow the steps and you will get a nice sponge cake. Not difficult. Any help, just give me a call... B)
