Fresh Fruit Pound Cake (Kek Butter Buah)

I made this cake for Liana's Barbie Doll Cake several days ago. You can see the mould that I used in the above picture. See here for fully decorated look.The cake is soft and tasty except my fruits were stucked somewhere and too much juice that the bottom part is less fluffy. I think I need to soak in lemon juice a bit longer and then drain out the excess juice. You can skip the fruit totally to produce nice butter cake with this recipe.

Happy 2nd Birthday Liana

 To my sweetie and beloved daughter Liana, HAPPY BIRTHDAY...!!! Momma, Abah, Along, Angah & Usu love you so much and want to see you grow faster..... May Allah protect and bless you everyday and forever.

 This year I made Liana a barbie doll cake. Since Liana love fruits so much and she is refrained from chocolate, I decided to make Fresh Fruit Pound Cake. The decoration was mainly sugar paste and partly fondant. The barbie doll was specially express mailed by Acik Nani from KL. It is my very very first attempt in decorating a barbie doll cake and very satisfied with it.... something for Liana to look back and feel proud of her mum's effort... may not be the best but it came from the bottom of my heart.

Liana actually cut the cake two days ago on Sunday during the gathering I had in my house. See here the makan-makan occasion. Someone commented that Liana's doll on the cake grown bigger year after year (referring to last year cake which had much smaller doll - see here). Syukor, alhamdulillah, Liana has also grown bigger and so fast she is now two years old.

To all aunties out there, much love and hugs from Liana. Thank-you so much for always asking about Liana from time to time.

Kuih Ketupor

I never eaten or heard the name of this kuih until today. We had a farewell party in the office for Pat's early retirement. Many delicious food and kuih were served from the local catering. This Kuih Ketupor was one of the specialties from local Sarawak. It is soooo delicous that I requested 3 pieces to bring home so that I can take photo and share with all of you out there.

The top layer is sweet, very creamy & soft just like the typical kuih talam. The special part is the bottom layer which is unsweetened, coarse texture, crumbly and taste like Putu Bamboo or kuih putu. Something I have not eaten before and a very special combination. I'm hoping that someone who read this will share the recipe with me one day.

Pineapple Pancakes (Penkek Nenas)

 The first time I tasted Pineapple Pancake was in Amsterdam during my Europe tour recently - see here. It tasted really nice that I decided to try to make it for the family to enjoy it. I have created a recipe from basic pancake batter and received 5 thumbs up, including Liana's who finished a whole pancake. My two boys were eating the pancake with repeated "emmmmmmh... so delicious...." and each of them had 2½ pancakes of a dinner plate size.
The darker version (on the right) tastes nicer and crispy.  For crispier result, place extra butter before pouring the pancake batter. The butter will cause the color of the pancake surface becomes brown and uneven but that is what it supposed to look like - it should not look smooth and beautiful golden color like plain pancakes.

I bought quite a young fresh pineapple and hence not sweet enough. So I decided to grill it with butter and brown sugar before adding to pancake batter. The result was superb and made a lot of different to the whole flavour. For extra tasty, serve the pineapple pancake with both palm sugar syrup and maple/pancake syrup as shown in the photos.

By: Roz@HomeKreation
INGREDIENTS:
1 whole Pineapple or Canned pineapple ring
250g Plain Flour
625ml Fresh Milk
3 Eggs
2 tbsp Melted Butter
2 tbsp Sugar
Pinch of Salt

METHOD:
1. Peel pineppales and remove the "hairy noses" by slicing shallowly along the nose line in spiral direction.
After peeled, slice it into thin circles.

2. To grill the pineapple rings, melt some butter in a flat pan / griddle.
Place pineapple rings and sprinkle some brown sugar.
Flip the pineapple rings occasionally & sprinkle more sugar/butter as necessary.
Once the pineapple rings are soften and coated with caramalised sugar, lift it & place in a plate.
Note: Skip step 1 & 2 if using canned pineapple but I can assure you the taste worth 5 times the effort. 

3. Blend the rest of the ingredients to make pancake batter.

4. Place a dollop of butter onto a griddle pan.
Place a couple of pineapple rings and pour pancake butter on it.
Cover until bottom part is brown.
Flip and cook just for a while before lifting it.

5. Serve immediately with maple/pancake syrup together with palm sugar syrup.
To make palm sugar syrup, just boil some coconut milk with some palm sugar, white sugar & screwpine leaf.

Long Beans & Bean Sprouts Masak Lemak

 I have not been cooking vegetables in creamy gravy for long time and no concern for cholesterol level because I used skimmed santan. I guess no recipe needed as this is the easiest recipe in the world. Place some santan in a pot/wok, add in sliced chili, onion, garlic, anchovies, long beans & salt. Once boiled, off the heat & add in bean sprout ----> ready! So easy, isn't it?
Ini masakan Melayu kampung yg biasa2 jer... Kot2 ada yg nak tahu, bubuh santan ke dlm periuk/kuali, masukkan cili, bwg merah/putih, ikan bilis, garam & kcg panjang. Bila menggelegak, tutup api & masukkan taugeh. Hidangkan segera ------> mudah kan!

Add in Petis, some water if it too thick, vinegar, sugar & fried onion.
