.....at times, whatever I said I am able to do, turned the other way round... that will be revealed in my upcoming entry...
Well the story continues.... Sal had asked me if I could whip up something nice and soft for her to bring to her MIL's place. She suggested for Apam. And I confidently said Yeah Sure... sometimes my confidence is scaring me! Hahaha... A day before the collection date, I tried a new apam recipe. Well, that one didn't turn out nice. So I said to myself, let me just use the recipe that I've used before. And on THE day, I got to work. I was so upset with the outcome. Macam kena sumpah je mama punya kuih apam tu... huhuhu... Since I ran out of time, I just gave Sal to taste. Luckily besides the apam, she wanted some savory tarts. At least that saves the day!
When I came back home from sending the goodies to Sal, I saw my steamer on the stove and still not satisfied with the failure that I've just bitterly accepted, I went on the net and start browsing for new apam recipe. My 'hop' brought me to Am's Kitchen and chose Apam Koko among all the other apam recipes that she had served in her blog. Thank you Am for healing my disappointment for that day. And Ain, you're just the lucky ones to get both unfailed products. Ain had emailed me, whenever I am making anything for orders, just make a few extras for her to taste. So this is her first time tasting my food. Thanks Ain for the feedback. Alhamdulillah, glad you liked them... To Am, thank you so much for sharing this lovely soft apam recipe with all of us.... Allow me to share the recipe here.....
