Macallum Connoisseurs Cafe | Lebuh Macallum, Penang

Camus and I took a day off from our busy life to enjoy our own sweet time. He brought me to this cafe located at Lebuh Macallum. He told me we can have our breakfast with coffee and bread kind of breakfast which I like. We arrived there on weekday morning around 10:30am and the cafe was very empty, only one customer during the time we were there. Plenty of parking space outside the cafe. Cakes at RM13 per piece! After enter the cafe, a young man passed us a menu, we seated and read through the menu. I was shocked when look at the menu and do not know what to order at the first glance, I focus on the price and feel hard to choose my meal as they are very expensive to me. In the end, we get one Macallum breakfast and Smoked Salmon Bagel, one cafe latte and one cappucino, there gone our RM55! Talk about the cafe, I found this cafe is quite nice as the fragrance really attracted me when I first enter the cafe. I like the fragrance and it is quite different with other cafe as I can smell something soury. I am not sure what is this fragrance until I get my latte and cappucino. The sweet aroma of coffee taking over my senses, they are creamy, smooth coffee I longed for. Cappucino and Latte Maccallum breasfast came with sunny side up, avocado, chicken frankfurter, chicken bacon, grilled capsicum, baked potatoes, bread and salad. Portion is quite big. I like the chicken frankfurter which the size like german sausage. Smoked salmon bagel came with smoked salmon with wasabi cream cheese, rocket leaves and pinch of capers. I do not understand most of the terms mentioned in the menu except for "smoked salmon". Now as I am writing, I compare the menu and photo I took, I cannot find "wasabi cream cheese" from my photo, why? Mana dia pi? Oh, the one spread between the bagel? It's wasabi cream cheese? Not butter? To me, this smoked salmon has nothing special but I do like rocket leaves. And now I know what is capers, it is the small tiny things appeared on top of the roll smoked salmon. Ooppsss, we do not finish that even though only served with 3 biji, what a waste? I thought they were just a decoration to the smoked salmon... Overall, Macallum Connoisseurs Cafe is a good place to enjoy coffee but sincerely, it was a very expensive experience to me.

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.

BreadmakerButterCake_7Have you ever try to bake cake with bread maker? I still remember, one of the attractive point of this new bread maker is the "bake cake" function. I wonder how will the cake taste with this super lazy method. No baking tool (except weight machine) is needed. What you need to do is to dump everything into the machine and press few buttons. That's all!

DurianCheeseCake_2"Is this a durian cheesecake? A piece of durian cheesecake in Continental bakery cost RM7++." My brother ask me this question when I pass him a durian crepe cake that I made few weeks ago.

"Do you think durian can match with cheese cake? Not sure how will it tastes." A sentence made by Camus's mom when she ate the durian butter cake that I baked few weeks ago.

With the questions and statements out from them, I have a strong believed that I must bake a durian cheese cake. To satisfy my baking desire and answer them with actual result.

Due to last minutes decision of making this cake, I have no time to look into my own recipe book, hence I search the recipe from internet. I got it from Kitchen Corner, I have a confident that the recipe I get from this blogger will work well after read through her blog for quite sometimes. She is from Singapore and I found her blog during I surf for baking blog. Thanks Grace for the recipe.

Ingredients:
For the base:
200g digestive biscuits
100g butter, melted

For the filling:
500g cream cheese
80g caster sugar
220g durian flesh
3 eggs (medium size, total about 160g)
90ml milk
1 tbsp + 1/4 tsp cornstarch

Method:
For the base:
1.Stir all ingredients until combined.
2.Press mixture into base. Set aside.

DurianCheeseCake_3

For the filling:
1.Beat cream cheese, sugar until smooth.
2.Beat in durian.
3.Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
4.Beat in milk and cornstarch until blended.
5.Steam baked at 150C for 30 minutes (I used smaller cake pan) or until light brown.
6.Remove from the heat and leave to cool completely. Chill in fridge for 5 hours or overnight.

DurianCheeseCake_4

I would say that the durian cheesecake tasted superb with creamy and smooth texture. I would strongly recommend this recipe to all of you.

But due to I do not blend the durian, it effected the texture. I would suggest to blend the durian first if you prefer a very smooth texture of cake.

MayoSandwich_5This post, I am introducing a special sandwich mold cutter. It will cut away the bread "skin" that many people do not like to eat, and "seal" the filling nicely after cutting off the "skin".

I bought this mold cutter from daiso Japan at 100yen. I found it very useful especially to seal sandwich nicely and look tidy.

BreadMaker_6_copyThis is a new bread maker that I bought some times ago. After the first unit of bread maker that I bought from Cosway, this is the 2nd unit that I bought from there. It is mom's birthday present.

The new bread maker comes with more functions compare to the first one, and it can make bigger loaf. The additional functions that attract me are "bake cake", "make jam", "bake only". I am not sure how delicious the cake is if you bake with bread maker. Well, I will try it! The "bake only" function is good where you can let the machine prepare the dough at first, and then remove the dough from machine and roll it to small ball (add some filling too), then put back to the machine for "bake only", so you do not need to always make a "Gardenia" or "High 5" bread, and it does not required oven.

DurianCrepe_8After 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.
