American Chocolate Cake

Hello everyone....

Just hoping that everyone is keeping well, where ever you maybe. Trully sorry for the silence. I was busy and life had been hectic. Fatin was home for a 6 days break and Syahmi had a long holiday during PMR, went to school for a couple of days then back to holiday mood for Deepavali till Tuesday. When Fatin is around, my job as a driver will be doubled and sometimes tripled. Tuitions, shoppings and whatnots. At the same time, I had orders for cookies and cupcakes as well and not to mention open house to attend to... Hahaha... I am just exaggerating, to make it sound that I am slightly busier than the Prime Minister! Muahahaha....

I had prepared 3 types of cookies as per Amy's order, one of which is a new recipe. Will post that in my later entries, if I do not forget.
Congratulations Amy on your registration. May you guys live happily ever after!

Don't forget to share with me the photos of your big day okay. You're no longer a Miss but now a Mrs to Mr Right.... *wink* *wink* And I made this American Chocolate Cake (recipe will be posted later) for Amy and her ex-fiance (now dear hubby!). Thank you for your feedback. I guess I have to bake one for us to taste later on...




Our neighbour Asmah and Sufi had invited us for lunch last Sunday. It was like a last minute invitation and I was left with so little time to prepare something to bring along. Luckily I still have some tart shells in my stock and ended up preparing some fruit tartlets for them, with Fatin's help of course (kena tulis ni... kalau tak nanti dia demand pulak! Muahahahaha). Alhamdulillah the fruit tarts were much to their likings.



After the lunch at Asmah's , Fatin and me sat down to work. We have to deco 100 mini cupcakes. Fatin wanted to sponsor a school event. She had told her friends that SHE's going to prepare the cupcakes but I ended up baking them all! But I made sure she did half the deco as she had promised her friends. I did the other half. These were our 'work of art'. Hahaha... What do you think?





Oki doki, enough of that, let's move on to the recipe. As promised, here's the recipe of the cake which I took from MaDiHaA's Fotopages and she got it from one of her cake books authored by Chef Wendy Kor. Thank you to both ladies for making this cake possible...
Note : I am sorry, I made a mistake earlier on. I posted the wrong recipe for the photo. The recipe that I had posted before this has not been tested in my kitchen. My sincere apologies for all the inconvenience caused.

  20. FAMILY FIRST :
    I don't normally keep lots of tarts shells in stock. Just the left overs and I must say, so far, I've tried keeping some for a month (as an experiment) and they are still good. Try keeping a few pieces in an air tight container and see.

    Kak Ungku Betty :
    Most welcome dear...

    kak ina kl :
    Waalaikumussalam Kak Ina..terima kasih banyak-banyak for your kind words. Kita dok kat area Subang Jaya..

    Cik_Azera :
    Alhamdulillah your experiment was successful. And thank you for letting us know that this recipe is also suitable to be made into cuppy cakes.

    Ummi :
    Ala Ummi, tempahan mendenya... itu anak sendiri 'tempah' tarak mashyukkkk la... kluuuuuaaarrrr aja ada! Hihihi... Tapi keseronokan tu yang penting... dapat gak selet menyelet....

    umi_e :
    Waalaikumussalam. Most welcome Umi. Just a small matter. Hope she wins...

    Uncle Lee :
    HAHHHHHHH NAK KAWIN LAGI? Aiyoo Uncle Lee, you're alone in this okay. I tak masuk campur aa. Nanti your Mrs kejar I dengan penyapu tau sebab subahat (accomplice) dengan you dalam this plan! Adoi tak mau cari pasal oo.. Being an XXL sized lady, I punya larian pecut (sprint), baru gear 2 la Uncle Lee while your wife can lari gear 6!!! Haha... you keep well Uncle Lee...

    yatie :
    Happy belated birthday Yatie. Ala sibuk sesikit je. Baguslah Yatie pun dah mula business cuppies ye...

    inahar ali :
    Waalaikumussalam Ina. Psst.. mama pun tak tahan tengok fruit tarts tu sebenarnya sebab selalunya kalau buat, dapat rasa seketul dua je. Tak puas. Lenkali nak buat lelebih sket, nak makan sensorang! Bley cam tu? Hehehe....

  21. Arhaaa ha ha ha, love your humour, Mama Fami...

  22. Uncle Lee :
    About the Smoke House Inn, can I request to change the venue tak Uncle Lee? What say if we go to Kenny Rogers instead? Together with my gerabak okay.... Hahahaha... just kiding! I've served your Iced Coffee okay. The cake and the donuts will have to wait till I come back from 'hunting' (hunting for recipe la... bukan hunting wild boars like your Mr Oscar)! Hehehe.... Alamak Uncle Lee, you want to come over by bus eh? Like that aa, my Iced Coffee jadi air putih ajelah, all melted already! Hahaha...
