Steamed Caramel Banana Cake Recipe

I have overcome another fear on handling caramel last weekend. This steamed caramel banana cake gave me a good practice on cooking caramel as well as steaming a cake. I always afraid the caramel will stick on my pan when it turn brown, but thank God that I have successfully cook it nicely and no burning sugar stick on my pan. Since it is a steamed cake, it's texture is similar to huat kuih/fatt koh发糕. If make it into cupcake, it is just like huat kuih发糕. When my mom ate this, she said it is malai ko马来糕. With her comment, she gave me inspiration to bake malai ko next time.

Ke Ren Lai Restaurant | Gurney, Penang

After 3 years, I am now back to Japan again. This time will stay here for only 3 weeks, it is good for me to enjoy the food here. I miss the food in Japan, from sandwich to bread to cake to dessert to ramen to bento to coffee to izakaya food to sashimi to ... many more. Opsss...this post is not about Japanese food yet. Let's back to my last dinner before I came to Japan.

 

Dinner at いろはかるた Izakaya 居酒屋| Kyoto Japan

Izakaya居酒屋is a place where Japanese gather together for eating, drinking, smoking and talking. To be more precise, it is a place for them to drink, drink, drink and drink non-stop. Since it is a place for drinking, many Izakaya provide drinking buffer (飲み放題 "nomihoudai") package. If you are to order a set package, many of them come with appetizer, main dishes, salad, dessert and some side dishes. The drinks are buffet type and you can choose from soft drink, wine, cocktail, sake and others. Most of them are alcohol. I have visited to many of the Izakaya during the stay in Japan. Most of the times were attended farewell or welcoming party with Japanese colleague. I have no chance to take good photo during dining with them.

SarLaksa_3A pack of Sarawak laksa paste was brought back from my Sarawak colleague since 1 year ago. It was kept in my kitchen cabinet over a year until it hits the expiry date. At first I was thinking to throw away the paste after few months of expiry but at the end I just cook it as do not want to waste this "imported" laksa paste.

To cook Sarawak Laksa is easy but you need to prepare lots of stuffs. From cooking chicken soup until cutting vegetables and remove prawn shell, that was enough to occupy my one whole morning. But everything is so worth when I saw everyone is enjoying this imported and special Sarawak laksa that was cooked by Camus and myself.

To cook the soup, first boil 2L of water. Put in chicken meat and cook until it is cooked. Take out the chicken from hot water and leave it cool. Next, put in prawns and cook. Again, take out the prawns when it is cooked and leave it cool. Pour in laksa paste and continue cook for another half an hour. Filter out the unwanted chilis paste. Add coconut milk from one coconut and the soup is done.

To prepare the balacan paste, stir balacan powder in a hot pan, add in minced meat and dried chili flakes. Cook until the oil came out from minced meat is dry. Done!

Get ready a bowl of rice vermicelli (bihun), soy bean sprouts (taugeh), chicken meat, prawn, fried egg and mint leaves. Add in laksa soup with calamansi (limau kesturi) and it is ready to be served with balacan paste!

The taste is more towards our Penang curry mee and not our asam laksa taste at all. It can open up your appetite with calamansi and balacan paste. We just like it!
