Oreo Blueberry/Mixed Berries Chiffon Cake

This had been the most famous chiffon in the house so far! I haven't posted the recipe in my blog and yet, to date, I've baked 8 cakes all together! My kids really love this one. Fatin came back for her semester break last week and when she tasted this chiffon, she had requested to bring a whole cake back to her Uni. If only Maz Bahrain is around, she would also love this cake as she is known as 'Aunty Chiffon Cake' by my son. Hahaha.. that all happened when my son saw how she ate the cake straight away, once the container changed hands! Hahahaha.... Maz, hope you're happy dating with Mr Hubby.. ahaks... *wink*

Thank you to Rima and Dapur Aliza for sharing this lovely recipe with us.

Ingredients :

6 egg yolks
100g blueberry yogurt (I used Nestle brand)
150g flour
4g baking powder (1 teaspoon)
100g caster sugar
3g salt
100g vegetable oil - I used corn oil

6 egg whites
1g cream of tar tar (I used 1/4 teaspoon)
100g sugar
50g of blueberry oreo - cut into tiny bits
enough blueberry paste or purple colour (I used food coloring)

Method :

1. Preheat oven 150C
2. Whisk egg yolks with sugar till pale in colour. Add in yogurt and also oil. Add in your sifted flour, baking powder and also salt. Lastly add in purple colour. Set aside.
3. In another bowl, whisk egg white with cream of tar tar till foamy. Slowly add in sugar a little at a time and whisk till soft peak.
4. Scoop 1/3 egg white meringue and add to egg yolk mixture. Fold in gently. Once combined, pour your egg yolk mixture into meringue and continue to fold in gently and lightly. Once mixed, pour half of your mixture into a 22cm tube pan.. sprinkle half of your oreo blueberry. Pour the rest of your mixture and lastly throw in the rest of your oreo bluberry.
5. Bake it for 50mins. Once baked, turn your chiffon pan upside down and leave to cool. Remove from pan, slice and serve.


1. Substitute Blueberry Yogurt with Mixed Berries Yogurt. This time, I used Marigold brand and I think this one tasted nicer.
2. I used plain oreos instead of Blueberry Oreos.
3. I added another 10g of oreos because I made into three layers. Before pouring the mixture, I sprinkle some oreo bits at the base of the tin. Then I poured the the mixture and repeated the same procedure twice.
4. I used 2 tins for this recipe, sized 18cm and 20cm.

Have a nice day!

ILUS & Cambodian Porridge



Oh no no no... don't get me wrong. I am not calling anybody stupid but yes I love all the visitors to my blog. The above is the title to a novel that I am reading at the moment, written by non-other than the famous Melur Jelita. Her first book, a thick one too, is Awak Suka Saya Tak, which I've finished reading too. I am not a fast reader as time is not on my side. But I will carry the book wherever I go and will read whenever I have the time to spare.

I am on page 365 now.. and yet a long way to go. Mind you, the page that says TAMAT on it is on page 1389!! You can do it mama!! Chaiyok chaiyok...

What I can say when reading Melur Jelita's books, there are so much information in it. We are not only reading a story but actually learning something at the same time. And I like that very much.

Thank you Melur Jelita for the lovely stories and not to mention the useful informations... I look forward to finish reading ILUS as I think I am part of IRIS now... the nice part that is... hahahaha.....


One of the recipe that Melur Jelita had provided in her book is Bubur Lambuk Cham style. The recipe cam be found on page 291 and 292. I googled the recipe and came across this 'Bubur Nasi Kemboja' in Fiza Damia Yummy blog and decided to give it a try. It is more or less the same like the porridge that I've done before with a slight twist here and there. Nevertheless, I love it and my daughter does too.

To the Cambodian people out there, my sincere apologies if the recipe is not the same as your original recipe but according to Fiza, she got this from her relative who is a Cambodian. Thank you Fiza for sharing it with us...

Screwpine Chiffon (Pickyin)

Thank you Rima....

Posted by MamaFaMi
Source : Bisous À Toi 

Ingredients :

For the 1/2 cup pandan leaf coconut juice :
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup water
a few drops green coloring
1/2 teaspoon pandan essence

For the flour batter :
180 g self-rising flour
100 g castor sugar
8 egg yolks
6 tablespoons corn oil
1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate soda

For the meringue :
8 egg whites
100 g castor sugar
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

Method :

1. Pre-heat oven to 170°C and position a wire rack at the lower third rack. Prepare a clean 25cm chiffon cake tin, do not grease. (Since I made just half the recipe, I used a 21 cm chiffon cake tin)
2. Sift the flour and baking soda into a small bowl.
3. In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk the egg yolks with the corn oil to form an emulsion. Add the pandan leaf juice or pandan leaf juice plus coconut milk mixture.
4. Mix well before adding the sugar and whisk till sugar has melted.
5. Pour the mixture into the dry ingredients and whisk well into a smooth batter, there should be no lumps. Set aside.
6. On high speed of a stand or hand held mixer, whisk together the egg whites and cream of tartar. Start adding the sugar once the egg whites begin to foam, gradually in 3 additions. Beat till the meringue is smooth and glossy, with stiff peaks. Be careful not to overbeat the egg whites.
7. Immediately stir in approximately 1/3 of the meringue into the flour batter. With a flexible rubber or silicon spatula, fold in the meringue gently and mix well. Once a roughly homogeneous mixture is achieved, add the rest of the meringue and repeat the gentle, light-handed folding process till the cake batter is well combined. Scoop from the bottom of the bowl to ensure no meringue or flour batter is left unmixed. Do not beat or overwork the batter as this will knock out the air you've put into the meringue.
8. Pour the cake mixture into the cake tin. Using your spatula, dip it into the batter right to the bottom and make circles around the tin twice. This is to remove any large air bubbles possibly trapped while pouring in the cake batter.
9. Bake at 170°C for 10 minutes. Lower the temperature to 160°C and bake for another 45 to 50 minutes or until cake is done. The cake tester should come out clean. Don't fret if the top of your cake cracks a little, this is normal.
10. Release the cake by running a sharp, thin knife along the sides of the cake tin and subsequently the bottom of the tube. The cake is meant to be served upside down as it is heavier on the top.

* Cake keeps well chilled in an airtight container or cling wrapped up to five days (three if using coconut milk).

Note from Pickyin, thank you :
Recipe is from Pickyin mother's friend, original source unknown, makes a 25cm 5-inches tall cake.

1. I didn't have any self raising flour as I don't often bake with it so I made my own by using 180 grams all-purpose flour, 2 tablespoons baking powder and a ¼ teaspoon salt, based loosely on the conversion method at Deb's Smitten Kitchen. This recipe has over 80% of flour over liquid ratio so it is a very stable chiffon. It is kept soft and moist with the equal amount of egg yolks used as opposed to the whites.
2. I realized after speaking to a few friends wanting to make this cake that many do not own a 25cm bundt or angel food cake tin. There are two ways you can handle this situation without getting a bigger tin. The first is to make the entire recipe, pour enough batter into ¾ of your tin and bake the rest in lined muffin tin(s) for about 30 minutes. The muffin-sized cakes will be more dense but will still be great. Alternatively use the following tin size-number of eggs conversion to modify the recipe.

14cm tin - 1 egg
7cm tin - 2 eggs
21cm tin - 4 eggs
23cm tin - 6 eggs
25cm tin - 8 eggs

Have a nice day!

Snow Cheesecake


My neighbour really made my day today. I emailed to her the photo of my snow cheesecake and her response was...

"Fuhhhh anggun nya wak, rasa nak naik pelamin gue tengok lu punya kek, hahahaha"
(Translation (roughly) : So lovely! Looking at your cake, I feel like being a bride again... hahaha...)

I laughed when I read her reply. It's just a simple decorated cake, just with grated cheddar cheese and she was imagining something grand! But nevertheless, that made me happy! Thank you wak for cheering my usual.... Hope you liked this yummilicious cake..

Peanut-Butter Cupcakes



I believed it with all my heart...

I had my one of my sister's cookbook quite 'ages' ago, laying still in the cupboard, untouched. When she said she was coming last Sunday I decided to return all her books back since her book racks in her house are fixed. When I ran through the cupboards in my house, I found stacks of recipe books, belonging to Mak Chu including the book I was talking about, not to mention the English and Malay novels. I just flipped through the recipe books and started to 'drool' on the photos. But then again, when will I find time to try everything! Anyway, since I can't resist on the photo of the peanut-btter cupcakes, and it was an easy one too, I just had to try it out... Mak Chu and Pak Chu liked the cupcakes... and yes, I've returned the book to Mak Chu.... huhuhu....

Moral of the story : Never borrow a recipe book... get one yourself! But in my case...never buy a recipe book because the cupboard is screaming for air!!! No more space to 'breathe'!!! Hahahaha.....

3/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup milk (I used Dutch Lady Low Fat Milk)

Method :

1. Pre-heat oven to 180 C. Line muffin cups with paper baking liners.
2. Into a medium bowl, sift all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt, trice. Set aside.
3. In a large bowl, with a mixer at medium speed, beat peanut butter and shortening until blended. Add sugar and beat until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
4. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
5. Beat in vanilla.
6. Reduce speed to low, add flour mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat just until blended, occasionally scraping bowl with rubber spatula.
7. Spoon batter into the paper liners till almost full.
8. Bake until toothpick inserted in center of cupcakes comes out clean, about 20 minutes.

Have a nice day!

Homemade Peanut Butter


A few days ago, I came across one post on my daughter's Facebook wall. A friend of hers wrote, he dreamt that my daughter and I opened a cafe and there were a lot of tasty food!! 

OMG... I have never met this friend of hers and I am not sure if he had tasted any of the food that I've prepared and still he dreamt that I own a cafe. So sweet of you Ainul Haqkim. You've made my day... Though I am quite sure your dream won't come true, but I will keep that as my dream too... who knows one day, everything might change.... *wink* 
And perhaps, these will be my cafe's menu.... ahaha... dream on mama.... 

T.H.E R.E.C.I.P.E 

Last Sunday, I wanted to try a recipe from Makchu's book. I had all the ingredients, except one, and the main one it seems! I was just too lazy to go to the shop to get this one ingredient. Luckily my brain was working that day and I googled for the homemade peanut butter recipe.... And since I am still in the state of being lazy, I just grabbed whatever peanut available, so maybe, my peanut butter is not as healthy as it should be... hahaha.. nevertheless, I have peanut butter without having to go to the shop and get a bottle!!
