Orange Mamon Cake

I found this baking recipe from my mom recipe collection book. She kept this recipe for 10+ years and never try out. I decided to try out last weekend :)

A) 4 egg yolks, 20 g sugar, 3 tbsp orange juice
B) 100g flour, 1/4 tsp baking powder (mix and sifted), 1/4 tsp salt, 1 orange zest.
C) 4 egg white, 1/2 tsp cream of tartar, 50g sugar
D) 50g melted butter

1. Beat A till fluffy, add B and blead evenly.
2. Beat C till stiff and confine, add (1) and D
3. Scoop batter into paper cups until 3/4 full. Bake at 180°C for 20 minutes.
According to original recipe, baking powder should be 1/2 tsp, but I only figure out my baking powder on left 1/4 tsp when I prepare the ingredients, because of no time to buy new baking powder, I try to put only 1/4 tsp and luckily it work.

Regarding the sugar, original recipe was 40g for "A" ingredient and 60g for "D" ingredient, I cut of too much and my fresh orange juice was too sour cause the whole cake become "sour mamon cake".

Overall, this cake still consider delicious. ^^

Yogurt Apple Cake

This was the first cake I bake when I bought a new electric oven few years ago. The cake was failed that time because I totally don't have any knowledge on baking.

After few year, at least I know some basic skill on baking, so I try to bake this cake again. Yeah, I was successfully! ^^
I forget where the original recipe from, I have done some modification based on the original recipe, here is my modified recipe.

250g Butter, 160g Sugar, 5 eggs, 135ml Yogurt (I am using Cranberry flavor Yogurt from Nutrigen Liteyo), 320g flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp sodium bicarbonate, 3 apples cut into cubes, cinnamon powder, sultanas and rum.

1. Soak sultanas with rum.
2. Sift flour, baking powder and sodium bicarbonate, set aside.
3. Cream butter and sugar till light and fluffy.
4. Add the egg one by one into (3). Cream until smooth and light.
5. Add (2) and yogurt alternately, mix till well blended.
6. Mix apples cubes, cinnamon powder and sultanas (do not include rum) into (5).
7. Pour the batter into a greased 9" round mold.
8. Bake at 180°C for 90 minutes. Test with skewer, the cake is ready when the skewer comes out clean.
9. Glaze the cake with apricot jams (or any flavor will do), set aside, allow the cake to cool. 

*Note: You might need to cover the cake with aluminium foil after baked around 40 - 50 minutes.

This cake taste good even after kept for one day.

Wed = Pink Day @ Baskin Robbins

I knew this promotion long time ago, but I always can't find a good timing to visit Baskin Robbins on Wednesday.

Then come to 11 April 2012, It was national public holiday for all states and territories of Malaysia to celebrate the installation of the new King of Malaysia. This public holiday fall on Wednesday.

Finally I found a good timing to visit Baskin Robbins. I show my pink colour recycle bag to enjoy the deal. I ordered Brownie ala Mode, pay single scoop price to enjoy double scoops ice cream. The price after tax is RM12.70.

This was my Blueberries Yogurt and Mango Yogurt ice cream with strawberry and walnut toppings.
