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.

 

Yam Cake 芋头糕 (Or Kuih) Recipe

I 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.

 

Manneken Belgium Waffle | Japan

I love to eat waffle especially when the waffle just comes out hot from waffle maker and waffle with peanut butter is always my first choice. I have even tried to make my own waffle with my sister in law's waffle maker which bought from Cosway. My homemade waffle didn't turn out as good as those sell outside. To me, good waffle should be crunchy outside and soft inside. Of course the taste should be delicious too. Recently, I get to know about Belgium Waffle after my first try in Osaka Railway Station, Japan. The strong fragrance from the waffle store caught our attention. We bought a piece of plain waffle which costs 126 yen (about RM4.50). The Belgium waffle was very crunchy and tasted heavenly!  

 

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.

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.

So, let's go to the ingredients:

For crepe:
200g plain flour
3 eggs
3/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp sugar
400ml milk
3/4 tsp vanilla essence
70g melted butter

For filling
450g durian fresh
150ml whipping cream

For crepe:
1. Mix all ingredients for the crepe together until get a smooth runny batter. Strain and rest the batter for 1 hour.

2. Heat up a non-stick flat based pan on medium heat.
3. Grease it with some butter or oil.
4. Pour in a scoop of batter and cooked until the crepe is firm, flip to another side and cook for a while.

5. Repeat step 3-4 until finish all the batter.
6. Leave the crepe to cool down on plate.

For filling:
1. Remove seeds from durians.
2. Mash durian fresh with a fork till creamy.
3. Whip whipping cream till stiff. Add in the durian fresh and mix till well combined.

4. Put a piece of crepe on a cake board, add in the filling and flatten with a palette knife. Stack another piece of crepe on top of filling and continue with filling until all the crepes finish stacked. Chill the whole cake in the fridge.

5. Remove from the fridge and rest at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.

The crepe I made is quite thick, the filling I used for each layer is too little. I personally think that it is better to make the filling the same thickness as the crepe, so you will have a nice and creamy crepe.

I wrap the remaining filling with remaining crepe to make durian kuih. They are very creamy and delicious too.
