Pandan Layer Cake

T.H.E R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S

I told my neighbour Saerah, that MamaFaMi is in her 'summer mood' now. And the 'flowers' are blooming nicely in her 'garden'. Confused? Well, to make it clear... Mamafami is in her good mood when it comes to cooking and baking!

Yesterday I made two types of cookies, a cake and another lopes recipe. In between, I was in and out of the house and doing house chores as well. Did my laundry, trice! I forgot to take my lunch... no wonder the tummy was playing this 'hard rock' song at 7pm! Hahaha....

T.H.E R.E.C.I.P.E

I tried baking another sponge cake after failing twice in my previous attempts. I still don't know what went wrong. I was so frusterated to the extend that I think I need to 'mandi bunga'. Hahahaha! Mak Lang Azie felt sorry for me and suggested that I try out this pandan sponge cake. The cake turned out much better. Am I loosing the dreadful spell already? If so, alhamdulillah!!! Thank you Mak Lang and Sweet4ever for the sponge cake recipe. Since it was a pandan sponge cake, I was thinking of transforming it into something nicer (haha... lupa diri jap!). Browse through the internet and landed on WendyinKK of Table For 2.... or More's blog and decided to give her recipe a try. I've made the right choice. Thanks Wendy for the 'makeup' recipe! Though my cake is not perfect, but I am happy! I should have put the first layer at the bottom to avoid that dark line from being so obvious. Next time perhaps.... or will there be a next time????

150g superfine flour
150g castor sugar

2. Reduce the speed and add pandan juice, pandan paste and food coloring. Beat on high speed for at least a minute or till the mixture is really light and fluffy.
3. Pour in the corn oil or melted butter and fold using a wooden ladle or a spatula.

(1) 2 cups water + 200gm sugar. Cook sugar until dissolved. Leave to cool down. Do this in advance.
(2) Mix 50gm cornstarch and 1 tsp pandan paste into 150gm coconut milk. Set aside

(4) Pour in (2) into (3) and cook until mixture thickens and boils. Remove from heat.
(5) Pour (1) into (4) and combine well.

To assemble:

It depends on the mould you use. If you want to assemble it upside down, then put 1/3 of the pandan layer in first, then cake, then another 1/3, then 2nd layer cake and the last 1/3 of pandan layer and last layer of cake.

If you want to do it upright, then cake in first, then 1/3 pandan, then 2nd cake and pandan and cake again and pandan layer.

Chill in fridge till cold and set. Decorate with some icing and dessicated coconut.

Spiral Currypuffs

T.H.E R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S

WHAT A COINCIDENCE... but it seems the coincidence is way too often... Yes, yesterday, it rained, after 6 hours I washed my car. It had not been raining for the past 5 days before this. And at night, it was raining heavily on our way to Kajang. Guess what, of all the cars at home, hubby just took mine out! Redha mama redha... hujan tu Allah yang bagi... redha insyaAllah!

Last month, I had mentioned in my facebook (when it's still 'alive') about the different prices of this Snow Brand Infant Formula Step 2. That time, I went to 4 different shops/supermarkets and I got 4 different prices. The last wholesale market was the cheapest.. if I am not mistaken, it was RM44.50. Yesterday we went there again to get the stock. Actually hubby went in to buy and the price was RM54.50! Just in one month's time! So to conclude... Speed 99 is still the cheapest, selling at RM51.50. Ahahaha dah jadi amoi promoter Speed 99 ler plak haaa

Lopes de Sequeira.... hihihi

T.H.E R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S

Just now, when sending my son and Hafiz to school, I had said to myself that I am NOT going to was my car today as I have quite a long list-to-do in mind. But when I reached home, I just parked the car near the tap, took a bucket, filled it with the car shampoo and water and the next thing I know, I was busy washing my car! But this time, I just washed ONE car... Why? Because the last time I washed both cars, it started raining heavily just an hour after I finished washing..... hahahahahaha......

Update : It rained after 6 hours I finished washing 1 car... hihihi... is there anything between me washing cars and raining? :D

T.H.E R.E.C.I.P.E


My sister's friend mentioned about kuih lopes a few weeks ago and that made me craved for some as well. I've tried making lopes way back in Malawi before, using Kak Liza's recipe and it was yummy. So for this time, I thought of trying another recipe and decided to try out Tulip77's recipe posted at Myresipi dot com. I was not disappointed. The lopes was nice. Thank you Tulip77 for sharing this recipe with us.


KUIH LOPES
Posted by MamaFaMi
Source : Tulip77


Ingredients :

2 cups glutinous rice
2 cups thin coconut milk
1/2 cup screwpine leaves juice
1 teaspoon lime water (air kapur)
1/2 teaspoon salt
a few drops of green food coloring
freshly grated coconut mixed with a bit of salt and steam for 5 minutes

Palm Sugar Syrup :

3 pieces palm sugar
5 tablespoons sugar
3 cups water

Method :

1. Wash the rice and rinse. Soak the rice with water, green food coloring and lime water for 3 hours.
2. Blend some screwpine leaves with 1/2 cup water and put to a strainer to get the juice. I didn't do this but instead, I just mix some pandan essence and 1/2 cup of water.
3. After 3 hours, put the soaked rice through the strainer. Pour the rice into a tray together with the pandan juice. Steam for 20 minutes.
4. Remove the tray from the steamer, add in coconut milk and steam for another 30 minutes.


5. I had used the egg ring and the base of my measuring cup to shape the lopes. Place a piece of plastic under the egg ring. Spoon enough rice into the ring. Cover with plastic and press using the botton of the measuring cup or you can use the bottle cover, whichever convenient.
6. Remove from the ring and coat the shaped rice with freshly grated coconut.
7. Place the lopes on a plate and top with Palm Sugar Syrup. Enjoy!

Method for Palm Sugar Syrup:

Combine palm sugar, sugar and water in a pot and boil over moderate heat until sugar dissolves. Strain.



Have a nice day!

T.H.E R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S

I received a text message from Kak Wan Nita Ferial of Fadeliciouscake, asking me if I had unfriend her in facebook. Well Kak Wan, it's not only you that I had unfriend. Infact I had unfriend everybody..... temporarily! Hahaha... I've deactivated my Facebook account since last week... again! Time is just not on my side at the moment.... huhuhu.....

T.H.E R.E.C.I.P.E

Posted by MamaFaMi

Source : Kak Jee


Ingredients :

250g butter (at room temperature)
150g castor sugar
4 eggs
200g self raising flour
1 teaspoon vanilla (I substituted with Rose essence)
4 tablespoons evaporated milk


Method :

1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
2. Use low speed to mix butter and sugar until well combined. Change to medium speed and beat until light and pale in yellow.
3. Add in eggs, one at a time and beat well after each addition.
4. Add in rose essence and mix well.
5. Add in flour, in three addition.
6. Finally, add milk bit by bit.
7.Pour the mixture into a greased baking tin. Shake it lightly to distribute cake mixture evenly. I used the foil, so there is no need to grease.
8. Bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown. If a skewer comes out clean, it is done.
9. Remove it from the oven and leave the cake in the tin to cool on the wire rack for another 5 minutes.

I've baked this cake in two foil containers. One was just the plain butter cake and the other one, I just sprinkled some toasted almond flakes on top. Simply yummeh!

BEEF PEPPERONI PIZZA


BEEF PEPPERONI PIZZA
Posted by MamaFaMi
Source : Chef Poh via Kak Rusnah


Ingredients (Dough) :

600g plain white flour (best to use good strong baker's flour - higher in protein)
4 teaspoons instant dried yeast
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
400ml ± water (enough to make a firm dough)

Method :
1. Mix one tablespoon of flour, the sugar and yeast with a couple of tablespoons of tepid water and allow to stand for 20 minutes. This will activate the yeast.
2. In a large bowl mix flour, one tablespoon of olive oil and salt.
3. Add yeast mixture and enough water to make up a firm dough and mix well.
4. Cover bowl with damp tea towel and leave in a warm place for an hour.
5. Remove dough to a floured workbench and knead for five or six minutes.
6. Divide dough into two, knead each into a loaf shape, put in oiled bread tin, cover with damp tea towel and leave in a warm place for an hour.
7. Before baking, sprinkle surface of each loaf with flour.
8. Bake in moderately hot oven (200°C) for about 45 minutes, or until top is golden brown and bottom is light brown. Tap the bottom, it should sound hollow.

Ingredients (Topping) :

Kimball's Tradional Spagetti Sauce
Enough beef pepperoni
Mozarella cheese


My way of preparing the pizza :

I used my Bread Maker to prepare the dough. When the dough is ready, roll to 1/4 inch thick. Prick with a fork all over the rolled dough. Spread enough spagetti sauce, arrange the pepperoni and grate enough mozarella cheese. Bake.

You can add more ingredients to the topping but since my kids prefer it plain, so this was how I had prepared the pizza.


Have a nice day!

Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls

♥♥ SPECIAL DEDICATION ♥♥

Courtesy of Google Image
With all our love for you my dearest... 
From Mama, Fatin and Syahmi


T.H.E R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S

WHEN THERE'S A WILL, THERE'S A WAY!
Hold on to that phrase and you'll get most of your job done! At least that works for me. The night before, just before dozing off to Dreamland, I had set in my mind that I am going to wash my car the next morning. So, yesterday morning, after dropping my son and his friend to school, I came back home, parked my car near the gate by the tap and started washing my car. Done with mine, I washed Fatin's car! I was so impressed with myself.. washing two cars in one morning! Wow!!! It's not always we can see this 'phenomenon'! Hahahaha.... But like I said, becase I have the mind set to wash the car, automatically I have the will to carry out the task the next morning.. only this time, I guess I had an overdose will! Hahahaha....

T.H.E R.E.C.I.P.E


CINNABON CINNAMON ROLLS
Posted by MamaFaMi
Source : Lightly Toasted at Food dot Com


Ingredients :

Dough :
1 (¼ ounce) package dry yeast
1 cup warm milk
½ cup granulated sugar
1⁄3 cup margarine
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
4 cups flour

Filling :
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 ½ tablespoons cinnamon
1⁄3 cup margarine, softened

Icing :
8 tablespoons margarine (118g)
130g powdered sugar (I've reduced the amount from 1 ½ cups)
¼ cup cream cheese (60g)
½ teaspoon vanilla
1⁄8 teaspoon salt


Method :

1. For the rolls, dissolve the yeast in the warm milk in a large bowl.
2. Add sugar, margarine salt, eggs, and flour, mix well.
3. Knead the dough into a large ball, using your hands dusted lightly with flour.
4. Put in a bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place about 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size.
5. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface, until it is approx 21 inches long by 16 inches wide.
6. It should be approx 1/4 thick.
7. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
8. To make filling, combine the brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.
9. Spread the softened margarine over the surface of the dough, then sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon evenly over the surface.
10. Working carefully, from the long edge, roll the dough down to the bottom edge.
11. Cut the dough into 1 3/4 inch slices, and place in a lightly greased baking pan.
12. Bake for 10 minutes or until light golden brown.
13. While the rolls are baking combine the icing ingredients.
14. Beat well with an electric mixer until fluffy.
15. When the rolls are done, spread generously with icing.

My Notes :

1. I've used the Bread Maker to do the kneading job. So add the wet ingredients first then top it with the dry ingredients.
2. I think I made a mistake by not spreading the topping/icing once the rolls were out of the oven. I only managed to pipe the topping when the rolls were cooled. That explains why my cinnabon cinnamon rolls looked like this instead of with melted icing! Huhuhu....


Have a nice day!

Apple Sharlotka

T.H.E R.A.M.B.L.I.N.G.S

Why am I always lazy in the mornings? Is it because, psychologyly I am thinking that I have lots of time to spare? Or it's just that my 'engine' is not warmed up yet? Normally it will be after noon that I will start to be more active around the house. Don't tell me, I am still following Malawi time? Malaysia is 6 hours ahead of them! How can that be? It's been 5 years already, I'm back home... haizzz....

Anyway, that 'phenomenon' happened again yesterday. After 12 noon, I suddenly had this urge to cook and to bake! Hahaha... mama ini Cinderella siang kot.... For lunch, I cooked spagetti. Followed by pizza, then Apple Sharlotka. Not only that, I even cooked for dinner, a simple fried rice, much enjoyed by my dearest hubby. And the best part is, all the food didn't go to waste and was enjoyed by everybody. Alhamdulillah.....

T.H.E R.E.C.I.P.E

It was Kak Wan Nita Ferial, the proud owner of Fadeliciouscake Blog who recommended this recipe to me. And since I had some granny smith apples in the fridge, I thought, why not give this simple recipe a try. Alhamdulillah it came out well and according to my neighbour, Saerah who had her share of this Apple Sharlotka, the sweetness is just nice. I made some adjustments to the adjustments made by Kak Wan on Alex's recipe. She had used only granulated sugar. But since she mentioned that she should have added more, so I decided to add in brown sugar instead of the extra granulated sugar. Thanks Kak Wan for suggesting this recipe and yes, I passed some to my neighbour okay... so, care to join the neighbourhood? Hahaha....


APPLE SHARLOTKA
Posted by MamaFaMi (with slight adjustments on the sugar)
Source : Smitten Kitchen via Kak Wan Nita Ferial


Ingredients :

Butter or nonstick spray, for greasing pan
6 large, tart apples, such as Granny Smiths
3 large eggs
100g granulated sugar
60g brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
125g all-purpose flour
Ground cinnamon, to finish
Powdered sugar, also to finish


Method :

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan with parchment paper. Butter the paper and the sides of the pan.
2. Peel, halve and core your apples, then chop them into medium-sized chunks. (I cut each half into four “strips” then sliced them fairly thinly — about 1/4-inch — in the other direction.) Pile the cut apples directly in the prepared pan. (Alamak, kena peel ke? I didn't! Hahaha... hantam sajalah labuuu)
3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, using an electric mixer or whisk, beat eggs with sugar until thick and ribbons form on the surface of the beaten eggs.
4. Beat in vanilla, then stir in flour with a spoon until just combined. The batter will be very thick.
5. Pour over apples in pan, using a spoon or spatula to spread the batter so that it covers all exposed apples. (Updated to clarify: Spread the batter and press it down into the apple pile. The top of the batter should end up level with the top of the apples.)
6. I sprinkle extra apple chunks on top.
7. Bake in preheated oven for 55 to 60 minutes, or until a tester comes out free of batter. Cool in pan for 10 minutes on rack, then flip out onto another rack, peel off the parchment paper, and flip it back onto a serving platter. Dust lightly with ground cinnamon.


Have a nice day!
