6 月: 父亲节~ 芒果蛋糕 (Mango Cake); 香蕉杯子蛋糕 (Banana Cupcakes)

6 月


过了母亲节又怎会少了父亲节叻?
今年本来想做个没有奶油的蛋糕- 紫薯蛋糕 (在别人的部落格里见到的,紫紫的天然颜色真的很美~) 可惜去到巴刹却没有紫薯。。。黄薯,白薯,马铃薯就有很多 =.="

结果就抱了三粒芒果回来。。。
做么呢?芒果蛋糕咯~


买了三粒回来才知不够用。。。
因为在网上看到很多美美的芒果蛋糕就想用他们那套来装饰,结果芒果被我切到不成形。。。
之前又没试过用芒果作装饰,所以没办法呈现漂亮的巨大玫瑰形芒果肉装饰。。。勉强只有一小朵可以摆出来给人看。。。


算了,没有芒果还有苹果和蓝莓,就全部拿来做配角吧。
怎知自己切苹果的技术那么糟糕,切坏了两粒苹果后终于给我勉强弄出一对‘叶子’。。。
这么简单的装饰却被我搞了几个钟,凌晨12点半终于大功告成。。。失败失败。。。










6月尾。。。 
家里种的香蕉又熟了~ 好久没吃香蕉蛋糕了。。。这次就做香蕉杯子蛋糕吧!















5月: Dragon Boat Festival- 包粽子咯!


5月
桌上摆满了粽叶和草绳,就知道端午节又到了~
妈一早就准备好包粽子的材料: 栗子,糯米,香菇,花肉,蚝豉,糖冬瓜。。。
这个周末我们家将飘来阵阵粽子香了~~




妈炒香了材料后,妹将材料放入粽叶,我就负责用草绳包扎粽子。
包扎粽子这步骤若做不好,煮粽子的时候草绳就会松开,那就变成水煮糯米了。


 

经过多年的包扎经验,今年总算扎得最好的了。
(只是我的双手被草绳和粽叶的茎弄得伤 痕累累。。。)







对了。。。现在才发觉忘了拍下打开粽叶后的粽子 =.=
算了,下次吧 =P

Mother's Day Special~ Oreo Steamed Baked Cheese Cake

Mother's day~
Without the helping hand of my mum, i'll not be able to bake this cake  =p (im not yet qualified to bake one on my own); 
but im good at taking the photos of my masterpiece~ (i dont dare to put up the whole picture of the cake because it was quite...erm....not pretty- in fact it was quite ugly, it 'Bloomed' like a volcano ~ possibly due to over-sized eggs which caused the mixture also 'over-sized'. )
so i cut it into pieces to make my pictures look nicer~



Ingredients:
A: 
250g Cream Cheese
4 tablespoon Fresh Milk
70g  Butter

B:
5 Egg Yolks
1 Tablespoon of grind Lemon-skin

C:
40g Superfine Flour
40g Corn Flour

D:
5 Egg White
120g Sugar

Biscuit Base:
2 packet of Oreo biscuits
90g Melted Butter

1. Take out the white cream and crash only the Oreo biscuits.
2. Mix well with melted butter and press the oreo biscuit into a non-stick adjustable mould.
3. Cover the base of the mould with aluminum foil. Refrigerate before use.
4. Heat up A with small fire in a pot until smooth without boiling it.
5. Then add in B+C; set aside for later use.
6. Beat D until fluffy.

7. Fill up a baking trey with water and heat up the oven for later use.
8. Mix a portion from D to the mixture as in step 5 ; then only pour the mixture into the remaining of D and mix well gently. 
9. Pour the mixture into the biscuit base.
10. Steam bake for 60 to 75 mins at 160ºC.

Feb event photos~

Events during Feb。。。
 Gift day~

 
Gift Wrapping specially for my colleagues and friends- on my birthday~ ^ ^
  
Actually that day i planned to bake some cupcakes for my colleagues, but when im about to start, i realised that my fridge was out of BUTTER !! Im a bit frustrated that time.... i kinda blame my mum for not stock up the butter.....(sorry mum....actually i felt very guilty > <) 
Then i decided to just pack some cookies i made...but it was kinda hard coz i couldn't figured how to pack it properly inside the plastic bag i bought....

Finally at ard 10.30 pm that night, i managed to find a way to pack it. I took about 90 mins to accomplish this task. My dad said if i was in the production area, sooner or later the business sure 'Jap-Lap' (ended).

 
i took a yogurt cover to serve as a plate; then the green teabag as the base of the packaging
