Indonesia Layer Cake with Cranberries Recipe

When I looked back my post on Hawflakes Layer Cake, I just realised that it has been more than one year since I last baked my Indonesia layer cake. I bought a can of butter for baking layer cake and kept until it was expired. I quickly grab it to bake for my next Indonesia Layer Cake with Cranberry. This time, I follow exactly the recipe in my blog too, with slight modification, I change the filling to cranberries. For my hawflakes and prune layer cake, I managed to bake a total of 8 layers cake but for this one, I get only 7 layers. It was still very delicious and as good as last two cakes! I spent less than 3 hours for this cake. You can substitude cranberries with raisins too if you like as the taste of cranberries in this cake taste very similar to raisins. Recipe here: (more picture can refer here) Ingredients: 340g tinned butter180g icing sugar (sifted)1tbsp sweet condensed milk 12 egg yolk1/2tsp vanilla essense1tbsp brandy (optional) 100g plain flour (sifted together with mixed spice)1.5tsp mixed spice 4 egg white Some cranberry and red colouring Method: 1.

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?

Yakitori_3

I would like to share a very simple dish that I cooked yesterday, homemade yakitori. Yakitori (焼き鳥) is a Japanese type of skewered chicken. It is made from few bite-sized chicken meats, skewered on a bamboo skewer over charcoal.





 



Japanese like to order yakitori during dinner with a group of colleagues or friends, eat with some other dishes and drink with beer or sake , Japanese alcoholic drink.

Besides chicken, they also used chicken heart, liver, chicken wing, ox tongue, squid and others to make yakitori.

On Friday, I bought a bottle of yakitori sauce from supermarket near my company. At night, I merinate the chicken meats with the yakitori sauce. The next morning, I grilled the chicken meats and ate together with rice. I do not follow the way Japanese cook and just put the chicken on top of alluminium foil and grilled them. It was delicious and very easy to prepare.

I am not sure where to get it in Malaysia. May be we can get it in supermarket such as Jusco or Cold Storage, or shops in town that selling all those Japanese food? Anyone knows where to get it?

Hi Juju, yes, you can substitute the sauce with something else..i grill it with gas cooker, they gas cooker here comes with a partition where you can grill chicken, fish or other food. Just take care of the chicken not to overcook or burn will do, no temperature setting is needed. You can grill it in your oven as well, temperature wise, maybe set it to 150deg? or 180deg? Grill until it is cook will do.
