Happy Birthday WT

Happy Birthday WT!
May Lord give you a vision for our future. Fill you with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding, so that you may have a walk worthy of Him, fully pleasing Him.
Submitting all your dreams and desires to Him by knowing that "the things which are impossible with men are possible with God"  May Lord our God give you the certainty that even in your most hopeless state, when you finds it impossible to change anything, our Lord, can change everything for you. Amen.

Salvage Disaster

May be I was a bit too ambition, a 4" tall cake stacked up by two layers of chocolate sponge with a super thick 1/2" whipping cream in between. May be a bit of lazy and careless are intolerable totally when come to baking.
I used two 6" mould pan with a bit difference in design. OK, I know but there is the only two 6" mould pan I have! I need two layers of sponge and lazy to do the cutting...So you see, when stacked up the sponge, one projected a little bit more, another one just that bit smaller than the other...haiz...

Indonesian Batik Agar-Agar (Indonesian Batik Jelly)

I still remember when I was in primary school, when come the time for year end class party, my mother always make me a tray of agar-agar (Jelly) to bring along. Sometime the agar-agar was in pink where she added rebina or, in orange where she added orange juice. Simple and plain...but all my classmates including me enjoyed the agar-agar so much.

Kuih Talam

I bought the pandan leaves (screwpine leaves) since last week, can't decide what I wanted to do with it until today. The baking mood is up and I know I want to make Kuih Talam (Steamed Coconut Pudding) again. 

Kuih Talam is my all-time favourite kuih since childhood. It has two distinctive layers in term of taste and texture. The top layer which make of coconut milk, salt, tapioca flour and rice flour, taste salty and the texture should be softer than the bottom screwpine layer. The bottom screwpine layer which consist of green bean flour, tapioca flour, rice flour and sugar, taste sweet and the texture should be slightly firm but still chewy to bite. The flavour of both layers complement each other.

Cranberry Cinnamon Rolls (Gelatinized Dough Method) 蔓越莓肉桂卷

This afternoon, I missed you ...my soft bread.
It is you who pushed me into the kitchen and I tried my best to make this creation again. Time flies, it has been more than a year since I baked my Cinnamon Rolls using Angie's Hakkaido Milky Loaf recipe. Again, the result is rewarding and satisfactory! 
It is Gabriel first time trying out a bread with cinnamon flavour and he loves it. I think the credit mainly goes to the rich creamy milk flavour of the bread. When WT tasted the roll, his eyes wide open and said this is better than the one selling. Haha...it make my day. It is down pour outside but it doesn't affect my mood to enjoy my afternoon tea.
