Delicious Apple cake (Again)

 I made this many times again and again... soft & rich with apple chunks and you will never get enough! I  actually made this for a colleague who helped me to organise my Hari Raya treat in the office since she mentioned that she likes this cake so much. I made them into mini size bundt cake, perfect for gift packs. Left some for hubby & Liana who love it too!

For recipe refer here.

Chicken Curry Kapitan II (Kari Ayam Kapitan II)

 This Nyonya style curry is slightly different than the typical Malay curry with some herbal tweak making it more fragrant. I like my curry with thin gravy and we just love this version. Another version of lovely Curry Kapitan I made earlier was shared here - also very good.

Had double plate.... especially good with Malay Ulam & Sambal Belacan!

Sticky Date Cake with Butterscotch Sauce (Kek Kurma dgn Sos Butterscotch)

 I made this yesterday to bring to a friend's birthday party. I started to bake it an hour before the party started because I came back from town late that afternoon. So I brought it to his house fresh from the oven and poured the topping during serving. It was a hot hit with many compliments including from the teenagers who were there... quite surprise that everyone like it! Actually the cake will mature and taste better after two days but it was good when served warm too. The sweetness is moderate with dense and soft texture. The dates blended very well with the cake and it tasted almost like pudding and delicious combination with butterscotch sauce.

Fresh Corn Jelly (Agar-Agar Jagung)

 I made this more than a month ago but too busy to update the blog.... If you love sweet corns, then you will love this dessert that I have created. This jelly tastes good but blending the fresh corn was not a good idea because it resulted in coarse husks in the jelly... so I have modified the recipe to use canned corn cream instead which will be smoother.

6g Jelly Powder
1 can Cream of Corns
110g Sugar
250ml Milk
350ml Water
LAPISAN ATAS:
6g Jelly Powder
100g Sugar
200ml Coconut Milk
350ml Water
1 pinch Salt

METHOD:
1. Bottom layer:
Boil jelly powder & water until dissolved.
Add in sugar & stir until dissolved.
Add in milk & cream of corns, stir well.
Pour into a container.
Let it half set & scratch surface before pouring the next layer.
2. Top layer:
pisan atas.
2. Lapisan atas:
Boil jelly powder & water until dissolved.
Add in sugar & stir until dissolved.
Add in coconut milk & salt, stir well.
Pour onto the prepared bottom layer.
3. Let it set at room temperature before chilling it in fridge.
