Durian Crepe Cake Recipe

After durian butter cake, I have tried with another new type of cake, durian crepe cake. I ate my first mille crepe during my stay in Japan. From there, I get to know mille crepe, a very delicious and special cake. Last year, I ordered one peanut butter mille crepe for Camus on his birthday, and it tasted heavenly. I wanted to make my own crepe too but due to time concern, I have no chance to make one. This time, since it is durian season, I make a durian crepe. Besides frozen cheese cake, this is another type of cake where you can make it without oven. The way of making the crepe is the same as making pan cake. You just need to fried the crepe piece by piece, prepare the filling and stack the crepe together with the filling until you get a perfect cake.

 

Indonesia Layer Cake with Hawflakes Recipe

After prune Indonesia layer cake, I am confident to bake layer cake again. This time, I baked Indonesia layer cake with hawflakes. Recipe follow the same as prune layer cake, except that prune was replaced with hawflakes. After first lesson learnt from prune layer cake, this time, with more cares and precaution steps, I am happy to say that it was a very successful and delicious one. This round, every single layer is baked until even darker brown, about 6~7 minutes per layer. I baked at upper level of oven. Hawflakes were arranged at 3rd and 6th layers. Melted butter was brushed for every two layers. I managed to bake a total of 8 layers at 8" square cake tin, every layers were measured evenly with one cup of mixture.

 

Butter Cake Recipe (Egg Separation Method)

Butter cake is one of my family favourite cake, I used to bake it years ago with "Buttercup" or "Farmcow" butter. This few years, I found it hard to bake nice butter cake with this types of butter. I am not sure what's wrong with it, it was either my baking skill get worse? or the weather that makes the buttle melt easily? or the butter itself? I bought a 500g better quality butter to keep in fridge and plan to bake for butter cake. This time I get "SCS" butter. When I read through some bloggers' blog, I found one recipe that is famous among many bloggers, and this method using egg separation method. I decided to give it a try. With no regret, I am very happy with the result, I like this type of cake which gives a very fluffy texture and rich in buttery flavour. Thanks to wendyinkk for sharing Mrs NgSK's recipe. I really love it so much!!! Ingredients:230g salted butter, softened150g caster sugar4 egg yolks (grade B egg)200g self raising flour, sifted (I used 200g cake flour+3.5tsp baking powder)60ml fresh milk 4 egg whites (grade B egg)50g caster sugar Method:1. Preheat oven to 170°C. Line bottom and sides of 8 inch cake pan with parchment paper. 2. Cream butter and sugar till pale and fluffy, scrape side and bottom of mixing bowl as necessary. Add egg yolk 1 at a time. Beat well after each addition. 3. Put half the sifted flour and mix on low speed until combined. Add milk in two additions and mix until well combined. Add in balance of flour. 4. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk egg whites till soft peak. Gradually add in 50 g sugar, beat until egg whites form stiff peaks. 5. Put half the egg whites in butter mixture and mix on low speed, pour in balance of egg whites and fold with spatula. 6. Pour batter into baking pan and level.7. Bang baking pan on table top to remove big air bubbles.8. Bake at pre-heated oven for 45 minutes or until skewer inserted and come out clean. My cake has little crack on top when bake in oven for about 40 minutes, I don't really care about this as most importantly it was very delicious, look at the photo to see the cake's texture, lovely!

3 Layer Electric Mini Rice Cooker

I bought a mini rice cooker lately, although I have slow cooker, rice cooker and some other types of cookers, I still decided to buy this mini rice cooker, reason is to cook baby porridge in faster and easier way. I had tried to use slow cooker to cook porridge, it took about 3 hours to get ready. Product description: 3 layer cooker come with timer, can cook rice, porridge and baby porridge. The timer function is very useful as we can set it to start cook at preferable time. I first try to cook lunch for Camus and myself before start to use it cook for baby. This is the first meal I cooked with the new cooker, ready marinate beef bought from AEON, steam pumpkin and rice. Simple meal enough for two. Second try with baby porridge, less than 1 hour to get it done, easy to clean too. You can manually set the time to cook longer or shorter (default setting at 55 minutes for baby porridge). Avocado with sweet potato baby porridge I did re-heat baby porridge for dinner too, by changing the setting to cook for 12 minutes. In summary, I really love this mini rice cooker with it's timer, easy to clean, easy to carry and fast to cook functions.

KettleCorn_8Thinking about pop corn, thinking about cinema. Thinking about cinema, thinking about pop corn. A box of pop corn with a cup of coca-cola, seem to be a cinema meal.

Nowadays, 2 person watching movie with a set of cinema meal require around RM30++ or more. To me, this is consider expensiveMoney mouth. So, we choose to pop our own corn at home while watching for movie. This way of entertainment save a lot of cost and at the same time, you will enjoy your movie with your love one.

To do this, what you need are unpopped popcorn kernels, sugar, oil and a big pot with cover. Quantity of ingredients depend on you and of course, the pot size. You can follow the proportion of 2:1:1 (unpopped popcorn kernels : sugar : oil).

Firstly, heat up oil in a big pot with medium fire. Put 3 corns inside the pot and cover them up. Wait for few minutes and you will hear "pop..pop..pop". Yes, the 3 corns have poped out.

At this time, pour in the rest of corns together with sugar into the pot, stir evenly and fast.

Cover them up. You will hear "pop..pop..pop...pop..pop..pop...." sounds. Shake the pot while they are poppingCool. When you cannot hear anymore pop sound, you will get a big big pot of pop corn.

Hi Ng,
Only the parts that covered by melted sugar will become crispy. You need to shake the pot well in order to get more even melted sugar cover.
Once your turn off your gas, pot cover must open as soon as possible.
Also, you can add in slightly more sugar to get more crispy result.
