Coffee bread

This is my 100th bakes! :) I made this bread for my tea beak this afternoon. This coffee bread really tastes great when eaten warm. I dun own a bread loaf pan so this coffee bread is a bit out of shape.. I piped coffee toppings on top of the bread in a coiling motion, tats explained why you see some circles on top of my bread. kekeke ;P

Seafood pizza



I'm not cooking dinner tonite.... I made pizza instead! :) I added lotsa ingredients in my pizza: squids, tuna, prawns, mushrooms, onions & most importantly, my favourite cheese! I fry the ingredients in sambal sauce b4 sprinkle the cheese. Sad to say that I had forgotten to add in my favourite tomatoes & I only realized when the pizza was in my microwave oven 10mins later. The pizza was delicious. Sweet tomato taste, rich cheese with lotsa ingredients. I ate half of the pizza for dinner & saved the other half for my hubby. Hope he also like my seafood pizza *^_^*

Honey cornflakes mini cups



I wanted to try baking different stuffs besides my usual cakes & cookies today. My cornflakes & honey (its Manuka! ;P) at home were perfect ingredients! I made some honey cornflakes & put them into mini cups & sprinkle chocolate chips on top before sending them for baking. It was easy making those mini cups & most importantly was that they tasted great! *^_^*
Wirda's birthday falls on the coming Monday! I made a chocolate cake for her & will celebrate for her tomorrow's morning together with her friends *^_^*

The almonds & tart was crunchy. Perfect combination with the chocolate fillings. *^_^*

I really like doughnuts. I regretted making too little doughnuts last wk. To satisfy my cravings, I made some sweet potato doughnuts today. They tasted great! Yummy Yummy! But I guess I will still prefer the original flavour doughnuts. *^_^*

Doughnuts



I love doughnuts! I prefer the original flavour doughnuts that I used to eat when I was young. This is my 1st attempt on making doughnuts & I was excited about it. I patiently waited for my doughnuts to 'rise' (yeast addded) for 45mins before I deep fry them. I coated my doughnuts with sugar & cinnamon. Yummy... the familiar taste of my childhood doughnuts. *^_^*

Nasi Lemak



I cook Nasi lemak for dinner today as I had left over coconut milk after baking the coconut macaroons?? Coconut macaroons (do they resembles macaroons in the 1st place??)?? Yah, I still had doubts as to what they actually were. I am supposed to bake Kueh bangkit, but somehow the batter was too runny. Wat's worse was I am unable to 'save the batter' as I dun have any more flour left @ home! Argghh.... I dun want to waste the batter & continue with my baking. So... the pic here showed my final product after I spread some kaya fillings in between. Hmm... It tastes sweet with a nice pandan coconut taste.
Oh btw, my Nasi lemak was very nice! But I guess it will be even better if there were chicken wings to go along with! I will remember to add them in the next time I cook Nasi lemak. *^_^*

Devil's food cake

I had an left over egg from my previous Almond cookies glazing, so I might as well put it to use & baked a cake. Oh ya, I ran out of butter today, so I could only top the cake with chocolate ganache. :( Nevertheless, this cake still taste good without chocolate fillings between the layers of cake. This is definitely a moist & rich cake. One slice of it was enough to fill up my stomach. *^_^*

Almond cookies

I had a pack of ground almonds in fridge, so I decided to bake some almond cookies. I always see these cookies around during CNY. They are really perfect for snacks! Guess what? The best part about these cookies are they do not contain any butter & eggs! Opps... does tat gives me an excuse to eat more of the cookies then? *^_^*

Cotton cheesecake

I made cotton cheesecake today. Yeah, I know it looked similar like my caramel cake... (I should have adjusted my oven temp!) The texture is super light & soft juz like cotton! I added orange zest & juice inside the batter so there is a nice smell & taste of orange. [I brought some for my colleagues the next day & they loved it.] *^_^*

Steamed glutinous rice

My mum taught me how to make steamed glutinous rice 2 wks ago, so today I made some for my brunch. I had dried shrimps, diced mushrooms & meat in my glutinous rice. I omitted peanuts as I do not like them. It may not look pro like those sold outside, but at least it is healthier (less oil, less seasoning). *^_^*
