Tried steaming this after the moist chocolate cake. Love this recipe and my steamed Pandan Cake turns out even better. But the color is a bit dark and I should not have added coloring since I already use the pandan extract.
- 250g butter
- 230g castor sugar
- 5 eggs B
- 220g self raising flour
- 1tbsp milk powder
- 1tbsp pandan paste
- 1 tbsp green coloring/pandan extract
- Beat butter and sugar till fluffy
- Fold in egg one by one and then pandan paste and coloring
- Fold in sifted flour and milk powder
- Combine mixture evenly
- Steam for one hour
- Spread with cream (which I should also omit next time)
The weather is so hot and I don’t feel like heating up my oven. Hence I recently tried steaming my cakes instead. Tried this recipe and it taste quite nice.
- 100g cocoa powder
- 250g castor sugar
- 1 tin evoporated milk
- 200g cooking oil
- 250g condensed milk
- 150g plain flour
- 1tsp soda bicarbonate
- 1tsp baking powder
- 4 eggs B
- Combined all Ingredients A and stir well
- Stir over heat for a while
- Beat eggs separately and pour into mixture A
- Fold in flour mixture (I used SRF instead)
- Blend mixture at low speed until even
- Steam for one hour
I had to keep on adding water into my steamer as it requires quite a long time to steam over the stove. I reduced the sugar used though. Taste wise, my cake was very moist and nice.
I was talking to my neighbour about her old car’s condition and she was telling me how safe she feels whenever she drives her old car. The safety in public is at stake now and many of my friends are getting one of the tasers for sale from safetygirl.com to protect themselves, just in case anything happens.
Anything that contains milk would surely taste good.
I haven’t tried this out and would be interested to make some for my next baking project.
- 114g salted butter
- 114g unsalted butter
- 228g shortening
- 1Tbsp clear vanilla extract (if wanna yield white cream)
- 907 icing sugar
- 4~6 Tbsp very cold milk
- Cream butter and shortening ell
- Add in vanilla extract
- Slowly add in icing sugar
- Add 1Tbsp milk each time until the right consistency
I think I better try this out early just in case I could not get it right on the important days of my boys’ birthday celebration!
Kids love pool but it sounds almost impossible for us here to have a pool at home. Having a pool at our own home isn’t very common here. Imagine the trouble of maintaining a pool. It takes a lot effort to maintain a pool although we can just get one of the pentair pool pumps. If only I can swim, maybe I would consider….
While browsing online, I stumble across this website with a recipe for the infamous Wondermilk cuppies. I personally have not tried any of their cupcakes but since I am going to bake for the kids on their coming birthday, I thought I better give this recipe a try.
(*do note that this recipe is only suitable for cupcakes and not whole cake)
- 229g butter
- 128g sugar
- 4 eggs
- 512g flour (all purpose fine )
- 225ml milk
- 1tsp vanilla
Method is about the same like the rest, cream the sugar and butter first. Add vanilla.Then add in eggs one by one and then lastly fold in flour and milk.
I wonder how this recipe is going to taste since flour used is almost double of the butter used. Just can’t wait to try out….
I just get so tired of being a nagging mum. At many times, my girl just won’t move even when it is times up. For instant, rushing for school, her tuition and music class. Now she doesn’t even bother to practice her violin anymore. And she even dare to ask me to buy melodica at GC while she have not master her violin yet, sigh…
Just cannot help admiring these swirl buttercream roses I did last week. It was my first attempt working so successfully with buttercream.
Recipe for my buttercream as below:
- 125g butter
- 125g creamwell
- about 300g icing sugar
- 1/4 tsp vanilla essence
- A touch of salt
The buttercream was not runny this time and it taste just perfectly on my butter cupcakes. But I am tempted to get it more stiff and maybe I shall add more icing sugar (most recipe calls for at least double amount of the icing towards the cream used in the recipe).
Noozle for Roses
I initially wanted to get the Wilton 1M tip for my roses but unfortunately I could not get them at both bakery supply shop I went to. Instead I used the Ateco 855 which is similar to Wilton 1B tip. Good enough, but I think the pipe out cream is a bit too wide.
I’ll see if I can get Wilton 1M to try again soon.
Have you visited a home right in the town keeping lots of little animals? I was surprise when I visited Wai Han’s place last week. She is keeping two ducks, a hen who lay eggs for her family, a dog to watch over their home, and lots of rabbits running everywhere. The animals are so tame and they seems to live so well together except the dog, which is still very new to their home. I thought they ought to get one of the shock collar for dogs and I bet it would be a very good watch dog for them watching over her kids when they play outdoor.
Have you seen anything so beautiful? I am so glad I ordered these 22pcs cakelets from Joanna Low, an online partime baker from Confections KL. As usualy she did not fail to surprise me with her cakes.
I was told that cakelets are normal butter cake with a dense base as compare to cupcakes. I was like, huh, are there any difference?
Not only they look so pretty, these cakelets taste really good as well!
I am tempted to try baking this myself soon and I hope I could get the floral pipe out as good as hers this time!
