Apple & Cranberry Baked Cheesecake Recipe

It has been long time I never bake cheesecake again. Last Saturday, I grab one Anchor cream cheese from bakery ingredient shop and start to bake this Apple & Cranberry Baked Cheesecake. This is the first time I cook apple ingredient, as I do not really like apple. But after this, I will continue with apple stuff as it really taste delicious. The green apple is not sour at all after cook in sugar and lemon juice. I believe this is a good way to enjoy green apple if you do not like sour, as some people claimed that green apple helps in reducing colesterol. Well, no matter this is true or not, who cares? As I only care on the recipe, and you?

Mini Pandan Bun Recipe

All the while, I enjoy blog walking at baking blogs. Recently, I gathered many recipes from baking bloggers, some are breads, some are cakes. I found a special recipes at many baking bloggers' blog, it is call "微波面包", if you translate directly, it means "microwave bun". I believed the name had successfully misleading many people and give impression that it is bake with microwave, but in fact, it is not. It uses conventional method which you need to bake in oven. The speciality of this recipe is that it gives a very soft texture to the bun. I first try with pandan bun recipe, it looks simple but in fact quite time consuming. Rolling each mini bun to swiss roll pattern spent quite long time. Although it is time consuming, but I really enjoy the making process.

 

Ki no me (kinome) Japanese Restaurant | The One, Penang

Ki no me, a Japanese Restaurant located at The One, Bayan Lepas. Before went there, comments from others about this restaurant are positive. Good food with good price, but need to wait for nearly one hour before the food was serve. When I blog for this restaurant, I google for Ki no me, and I found this: 木の芽, the young leaves of the sansho tree (Japanese pepper). I think the restaurant named after this leaf as I observed the wall is decorated with many greeny leaves. I believed they are ki no me. Today, we decided to give it a try, we were lucky as we get a parking space right in front of the restaurant and not crowded at the time we arrived there.

YamKuih_3I miss my kitchen, I miss my oven, I miss my flour, miss my butter, my mixing bowl, and...and...and... every single little thing in my little kicthen......

I have no time to bake, no time to cook, no time for food hunting for the past few months. The only thing I can do is to surf and read on people's blog. Sometimes, blogging life is quite lonely if you are walking alone. Interaction with readers or other bloggers are the best way to keep us motivated.

Recently, while surfing for recipe from internet, I found a group of "bakers" where they bake and share together. I wanted to join since when I found it, but again, due to no time to bake, I have no post to share.

For the month of October, they are sharing recipe of "Traditional Kuih", I will join them in October with my Yam Cake (Or Kuih).

This recipe is taken from my mom.

Ingredients:
For the kuih:
½ bowl dried shrimps (lightly chopped)
5 shallots (finely chopped)
1½ bowls yam, diced into 1cm cubes

1 bowl rice flour
2 tablespoons wheat starch (or corn starch)
2 bowls water

½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon five spice powder
½ teaspoon white pepper

For the decoration:
deep fried shallots
spring onions
red chillies
dried shrimps (chopped finely and fried) - optional

Method:
1. Heat pan over medium heat, fry shallots and dried shrimps until they become aromatic.
2. Add cubed yam to the pan, fry until it becomes brown in colour.
3. Mix the rice flour, wheat starch and water in a clean bown and stir until it forms a smooth mixture. Ensure there are no lumps in the mixture.
4. Add the flour mixture into the pan slowly, stir until everything forms a thick paste.
5. Add salt, five spice powder and pepper, mix well.
6. Pour the mixture into a heatproof plate and steam over high heat for 45 minutes, or until cooked.

Hi Joanne Teh, you ask a good question. When I do this I use the "proportion" method, which is "1 rice flour : 2 water".
