Two Days Before Raya was a baking frenzy! I had to bake all this, or else I wouldn't make it before raya!So, I started at 11 after getting some groceries from Econsave and began making Lapis Prune, Prune Cake (MIL requested), Victoria Sandwich Cake (x2, one for Mak Arah), and Coffee Macarons for iftar!
It was prunes affair! Lucky I was fasting, if not I would have popped a few into my mouth!

4 eggs
8 oz butter (250g ), I used SCS

2.Sift ground almond, icing sugar, and Nescafe.
3.Beat egg whites till foamy, add caster sugar bit by bit, beat until soft peak. Beat for 2 minutes at high speed to have a meringue at soft peak, but not dry.
4. Fold in the almond icing sugar mix in 3 batches, I just dumped all at once. 
5.Mix the ingredients well, and start macaronnage to have a batter that is shiny and folds ribbony..
6.I filled the macarons with Salted Caramel.

Salted Caramel
200g sugar
200g whipping cream
150g butter
1/2 tsp salt

Heat sugar in a pan until caramel colour, turn off heat. Add in whipping cream. Last add in cubed butter and salt, leave to set.

...I was one happy woman, after all this were done...I shared the Coffee Macarons with Busu, Mil's younger sister....when I arrived in Muar, she kept asking MIL if I was making that bulat bulat kueh with inti...ahah...macarons...

Tomorrow I was going to make some Congo Bars with Butterscotch and some more macarons for Raya! ...hmmm  awesome filling when I could just bake for pleasure....

Ayer Baloi, A New Kitchen!

Good morning everyone! I have started my Raya break, woohoo! But spent the night before I left for Ayer Baloi, Muar tidying up my kitchen, my house, books , clothes and packing my baking stuffs and gadgets to bring back to kampung! I was supposed to make kek lapis this week, but I busted my schedule with the 21 cakes adhoc order!

Anyway....we left at 8 yesterday morning...err we were supposed to leave at 5, but we were all so tired and all things were only sorted out just before we left, phew!

....and travelling in the new tanker (bigger) just allowed me to doze off throughout the journey! when we , my guess what I found? The works in progress of the new kitchen in the "Joy of Life"...the Ayer Baloi home! Fadil and his team were busy working, of course the house now is in a mess pending the completion of the works....but never mind......The corian tops were up, the sinks were usable, and most of all, the 36 inches oven is ready for use, woohoo!
 Loved this island...with ample space, makes preparation for baking a breather literally! in progress... in progress.....
 14 yolks for lapis cempedak....
 ....beat the butter and ovalette and vanilla...
 ....the batter, yolks, eggs, butter, vanilla, sugar, hongkong flour, baking powder....ready to be layered!
 ...layers of abt 102g batter...
....the second last layer...cempedak flesh blended with condensed milk...yums!

I unpacked my baking stuffs and started making Kek Lapis Cempedak and whipped a batch of one egg white macarons to test the oven......voila, loved the new oven to bits....wish I could have the same kitchen in KL!

I was in a haste as it was almost time for iftar, I didn't snap the picture of the Kek Lapis and macarons....I'll post the recipe and pics later ya!

Iftar was at Fadil's with his mom Mak Arah cooked Assam Pedas Ikan Gelama Bintik (apparently only prominent in the waters of Pontian), Sambal Udang Kertas, Lemak Pucuk Paku with Sweet Potato and Rojak.....sedaaappppp!

Red Alert!

Salam Ramadhan semua...hari ni I nak berceloteh dalam bahasa ibunda saya, bolehkan haha! Hmmm, dalam kecoh-kecoh saya berentap dengan masa untuk menghabiskan kueh-kueh raya untuk Mak dan Mentua saya, di pagi hari Isnin, saya telah mendapat satu panggilan talipon.....Yong yang selalu menempah kek dan tart meminta pertolongan saya....dia memerlukan 1,500 cupcakes...mak ai! Banynaknya! Saya langsung teringatkan beberapa rakan sekapal saya yang juga sambil-sambil membuat kek dan kukis di rumah unbtuk jualan.....
Cerita punya cerita, bincang punya bincang, keputusannya ialah...saya akan menyediakan 500 Red Velvet kapkek manakala Wiz akan menyediakan 500 Moist Chocolate kapkek...manakala 1,500 kapkek yang lain Yong akan usahakan sendiri!

Alhamdulillah, semalam Wiz telah menghantar 500 Moist Chcocolate kapkeknya dan saya berjaya menyiapkan 500 Red Velvet kapkek pada pukul 3 pagi tadi...amin! Saya amat-amat berbesar hati terhadap Yong yang telah banyak mempromosi hasil kerjatangan saya semenjak beberap bulan ini....

Tapi, malangnya, selepas Maghrib semalam, say mendapat berita bahawa Yong telah dimasukkan ke APSH....kata Yong sakit perut yang teramat sehingga tak boleh berjaln.....pagi tadi Yong memberi tahu saya bahawa terdapat batu karang di dalam hempedu? pundi kencing? ...gallbladder..... segala urusan Yong sekarang di pikul oleh suaminya....sesungguhnya Yong adalah seorang yang sangat gigih...saya kagum dengan usaha beliau...majlis yang akan memerluka kapkek-kapkek itu bermula pada pukul 3...inshaalllah semua berjalan lancar....saya akan pergi melawat Yong, malam nanti inshaallah! Tq Yong! Muahssss!
Ini pula kapkek-kapkek yang telah disediakan oleh Wiz..tak sabar saya nak rasa Tart Nenas dan Biskut Maamor yang Wiz beri semalam.....Tq Wiz, my pillar!

Amacam, okay tak saya berceloteh dalm bahasa Melayu nih :p

Kacang Pool!

Kacang Pool! Yes, hubs wrote on my fb wall asking for this yesterday. He was driving back to KL from Ayer Baloi with Muhammad, Umar and Ibraheem. I had just finished making macarons, 2 batches cracked with feet...the weather was not healping, and I was really trying despite the damp and humid air!

Don't know why this soup/stew, sort of is called Kacang Pool...I gather it's due to the fact that you jumble up a few types of means to make this dish. My first encounter with this delicious dish was at my MIL's late brother's house during Raya, a few years back...yup at Pak Cik Aman's house.... and here's his recipe....
1 medium onion
5 cloves garlic
2 inches ginger, pound all this ingredients.
2 tbsp rempah Khurma Adabi, I used rempah Sup, left mine with the bag in Pasar Kecil Melawati, huhuhu
2 tbsp rempah Beryani, I used Haji Senan's....lucky there was a packet in my fridge, brought by MIL!
about 4 cans of beans in salted water, I used kidney bean, chic peas, green peas and baked beans.
1 tbsp oil
2 tbsp ghee...teeheee!
300g minced meat, I used fresh minced beef from Pasar Tani
1. Heat oil, sautee onion, ginger, garlic paste till fragrant.
2.Add the beryani and khurma spices that you have mixed into a paste, fry intil fragrant.
3. Add the minced beef, fry until all the juices dried up.
4.Add all the beans together with water.
5.Add salt to taste, let simmer, and remove from fire.

Best served with bread, sunny side up, fresh lemon juice, sliced green chillies and melted ghee...teeheee!
On Saturday, Yusof booked Carlos for our iftar, I obliged as I had spent the whole morning till about 5 pm making cookies for Mak and MIL! I had Seafood Sphagetti!
...last night this kenits found last year bunga Raya kinda started early for Umar, Ibraheem and Hajar!

......more baking from now till Raya, woohoo...and preparation for orders on 9th Sept as well, woot woot!

Pics of my cookies will follow....

Pineapple Cupcakes and Mixed Berries Macarons

Morning everyone! I notice everyone have geared into either making Raya cookies or trying new recipes for!!!??? I'm still trying to catch up with the list of recipes that I wanted to try....but am achieving so little! Ramadhan month which usually was quiet, somehow presented me with quite a bit of work to attend to in the office....and the traffic in the morning and driving home after work has so far been horrendous! By the time I got home, I had about an hour to prepare for Iftar......and my kitchen would cleaned and all tucked in and settled by 9.30! By then, I would have been too exhausted to bake anything, other than some simple cakes or cookies. I have made Butter Cookies and Pierre Herme's Choc Sable, but they are all gone already! Think I really have to start making my cookies this weekend!

Anyway, this were the cuppies that I prepared for Iftar on Saturday! Pineapple Cupcakes....easy to make very moist and one that I have wanted to try for quite sometime....
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 eggs
1 3/4 cups sugar
1 cup corn oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup sour cream
1 1/2 cups canned crushed pineapple (drained slightly) 
1. Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, set aside.
2.In another bowl, whisk eggs and sugar until pale. I used my wooden laddle.
3.Whisk in corn oil, and vanilla until well incorporated.
4.Add in pineapple and sour cream and mix until fully incorporated.
5.Fold in flour until nicely mixed.
6.Divide amongst lined cupcake pan, bake at 160C for about 30 minutes.
Cream Cheese
250g cream cheese

2 cups sifted icing sugar...I made mine to taste
1 tsp vanilla extract
Dried Shaved coconuts

Cream butter until pale, add cream cheese and whisk until light. Add icing sugar Add icing sugar bit by bit and keep whisking. Add some whipping cream if you like, I do!!

Since I made a full recipe of the cuppies, I shared with my friends who live in the neighbourhood!

Croissant Pudding and New Mac Flavors!

I must admit that I have been feeling very lazy to attempt any new recipes for cookies....even though I know that I have to make some for Eid! Yesterday, my kitchen was declared as close! The contractors had cleaned the walls (wet kitchen) and the tiles...the walls were all painted, and today the floor will be glazed...hubs had not called to say that iftar is tapau-ed food!

Anyway, last night I made this! I have been wanting to make this ever since I got a Bread Pudding recipe when I went to Saf for my cooking lesson....I was that bad, to even make a Bread Pudding, requires a recipe, kah kah kah!....and I remembered Saf said that Bread Pudding would be nicer if you use wholemeal bread or croissant!

So, last Friday on my way fetching Khadijah from school....and oh..there are times that I become the family driver...and no, we don't have an official driver, k....I got this lovely croissants from the UK Bakery...I tucked them away in an airtight container, away, away from my kids...and the father, hehe! Last night after the older boys went for Tarawikh, and Sizuka dropped by to send some brownies (for today's iftar!) I made this!

I lost the recipe that Saf gave me, so, I resorted to tweak Rima's recipe....but I remember vividly that Saf's recipe has cream in it.....and so is Rima's....and that makes this Croissant Pudding and me whirl round and round, hehe!
8 pieces croissants, sliced...I used a pair of scissors to cut
1 tbsp butter, ooolllallla, can't live without this!
400ml fresh milk
400ml whipping cream...can't live without this as well, hehe!
5 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1 vanilla pod, scrape the beans
Some sultanas.....
1.Prepare a cake tin, I used a casserole bowl, 7x7 inches greased with butter (lagi!!). Heat oven at 160C.
2.Cover the base of your casserole bowl with croissants. Sprinkle sultanas. Set aside.
3.Lightly whisk the eggs with sugar.Warm the milk, whipping cream and butter mixture and vanilla pod (can use vanilla essence) to melt the butter. Add sugar and eggs. Stir to mix  well. Let the mixture to cool.
4.Pour this mixture on the croissants, cover with the rest of the croissants.
5.Pour the remaining milk, cream mixture...leave the croissant to soak the liquid mixture a bit.
6.Bake for about 30 minutes on until the top of the pudding has turned brown!

Best served with Creme Anglaise...which I will make later today....
...of course hubs couldn't wait for today, he took a slice after the pudding cooled a bit last night...I had mine during Sahur...sedaapppp......reminds me of my days in uni...I ate whatever I had, so usually I made my then version of Bread Pudding when the bread starts to turn mouldy a bit , haha!...and they tasted good and became edible , haha!

...and my, my....what had I been doing when I became so lazy to make cookies!!??? I made macarons with new flavors! Yess!
This is what I call Ramadhan Macarons....Pandan (green) with Pineapple and Italian Meringue Buttercream...the shells were laced with Pandan Paste...the aroma, heavenly!and the existing Double Choc Using Valrhona Cocoa and Almond and Salted Caramel...everyone's and mine alltime favourite. thq Aida for this order, last week.
...hmmmm, the aroma, love the taste even better! Raspberry Macarons (with natural raspberry paste) and Raspberry White Choc Ganache using Valrhona White Choc and my cinta hati....Passion Fruit Macarons (with natural passion fruit paste) and Pssion Fruit Pastry Cream...perfect is the word...for me...lah, haha!
...theses!!! They are the colours of my wardrobe, tak percaya, come and see! Vanilla Macarons with Teh Tarik Italian Meringue Buttercream and Chocolate and Chocolate Caramel Filling, using Valrhona these too....hmmmph...donno if you are going to like this, I'm a sanguine I dream a  lot always syok sendiri with my creations (feel good about myself, hahahah!)....

Till the next post...tra!
