Durian Crepe Cake Recipe

After durian butter cake, I have tried with another new type of cake, durian crepe cake. I ate my first mille crepe during my stay in Japan. From there, I get to know mille crepe, a very delicious and special cake. Last year, I ordered one peanut butter mille crepe for Camus on his birthday, and it tasted heavenly. I wanted to make my own crepe too but due to time concern, I have no chance to make one. This time, since it is durian season, I make a durian crepe. Besides frozen cheese cake, this is another type of cake where you can make it without oven. The way of making the crepe is the same as making pan cake. You just need to fried the crepe piece by piece, prepare the filling and stack the crepe together with the filling until you get a perfect cake.

 

Happy Mooncake Festival from MnYfoodtalk

It has been a while since our last update in MnYfoodtalk, it is mainly due to our webpage was corrupted recently (thanks to the previous lousy web hosting company). All the posts were gone and we had to re-build and re-publish all the posts as we do not have a backup for our posts. During the downtime of our webpage, the poor service from the previous web hosting company was really dissapointed us and make us mad. Hence we had decided to change to new hosting company as they provide a better service to us. The two hosting companies did make a big different in providing services to their customers. For instance, the way they reply our requests did make a big different, you can't imagine how a service company can reply an email to their customers in a rude way and blame that the fault is from customers themselves. In fact we knew that was the improper server configuration that brought us all the nightmare and here we have no intention to blame any party, but the rude and irresponsible way of servicing customer from the previous hosting company had changed our mind in continuing to host under their company. So far, we are pretty happy with current web hosting company. One lesson learnt here, BACKUP YOUR BLOG OFTENLY!

CoffeeSmith_9When there are more and more cafe open in Penang, I wish I could visit them one by one to enjoy a cup of coffee but I only managed to go one of them recently. It is Coffee Smith that located at Maritime Piazza, Karpal Singh Drive.

We went there during Friday lunch, it was very crowded and we had to wait for a while to get our seat. The waiter gave us few copies of menu which I tought it was an advertisement booklet. I found it is quite special to printed menu in this way.

CoffeeSmith_8

After grance through the menu, I found that their foods are quite pricey. In fact most of the cafes are selling foods at higher price range nowadays.

I ordered brunch set "Benny Duck Egg and English Muffin", it came with two duck eggs and ham on bread, two pieces of mini hamburger steak (very mini), fries and salad. This set includes one small cup of fruit juice and black coffee, RM24. The way they serve on "wooden plate" is special but I wonder how they clean the plate? Will it remained very clean after use for many times, will the stain leave behind the wooden material?

They serve spaghetti too, Spring Vegetable Spaghetti at RM16.

CoffeeSmith_1

Hokkaido Scallops Cream Noodle at RM22. Portion was not big but taste creamy and delicious, you can find two scallops in the plate.

CoffeeSmith_2

Grilled Sandwich, Sicilion Chicken, RM14. I like the grill toast pattern.

Speg_3Years! It has been years I never touch on spaghetti, never walk into Italian restaurant (except for pizza). I am phobia to spaghetti after went for Italian buffet in Japan in year 2009, the Italian buffet came with free flow of pizza and spaghetti, somehow I guess I ate too much of spaghetti, and that caused me stop spaghetti for 5 years!

Last week, sitting in office, I suddenly smeeeell spaghetti (my brain pop out spaghetti)...then feel like eating the spaghetti that Camus cooked for me about 7 or 8 years ago. Last weekend, he cooked for me again using the same recipe.

See below for the ingredients and recipe, simple yet delicious!

Speg_4

To cook the sauce, fried garlic and onion in pan, when both ingredients almost golden brown, pour in a can of Campbell mushroom soup, add half can of water and stir well. Add in dried mushroom which has been cut into slices after soak in water until soft. Boil everything and add in a slice of cheedar cheese. Stir evenly.

In separate pan, cook corn, crab stick and beef breakfast lean.

Very delicious beef breakfast lean bought in Jusco

Cook spaghetti in boiling water until it is soft. When everything is done, serve spaghetti with mushroom sauce on plate, add corn, crab stick and beef breakfast lean. Serve hot!

Speg

Now while I am writing the post, I wish to eat another plate of spaghetti again. Next time, maybe I want to have a plate of carbonara spaghetti. Last but not least, thanks my dear for this very delicious spaghetti!

Butter Cake Recipe (Egg Separation Method) PDF Print E-mail

ButterCake_2Butter cake is one of my family favourite cake, I used to bake it years ago with "Buttercup" or "Farmcow" butter. This few years, I found it hard to bake nice butter cake with this types of butter. I am not sure what's wrong with it, it was either my baking skill get worse? or the weather that makes the buttle melt easily? or the butter itself? I bought a 500g better quality butter to keep in fridge and plan to bake for butter cake. This time I get "SCS" butter.

When I read through some bloggers' blog, I found one recipe that is famous among many bloggers, and this method using egg separation method. I decided to give it a try.

With no regret, I am very happy with the result, I like this type of cake which gives a very fluffy texture and rich in buttery flavour. Thanks to wendyinkk for sharing Mrs NgSK's recipe. I really love it so much!!!

Ingredients:
230g salted butter, softened
150g caster sugar
4 egg yolks (grade B egg)
200g self raising flour, sifted (I used 200g cake flour+3.5tsp baking powder)
60ml fresh milk

4 egg whites (grade B egg)
50g caster sugar

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 170°C. Line bottom and sides of 8 inch cake pan with parchment paper.
2. Cream butter and sugar till pale and fluffy, scrape side and bottom of mixing bowl as necessary. Add egg yolk 1 at a time. Beat well after each addition.

3. Put half the sifted flour and mix on low speed until combined. Add milk in two additions and mix until well combined. Add in balance of flour.

4. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk egg whites till soft peak. Gradually add in 50 g sugar, beat until egg whites form stiff peaks.
5. Put half the egg whites in butter mixture and mix on low speed, pour in balance of egg whites and fold with spatula.
6. Pour batter into baking pan and level.
7. Bang baking pan on table top to remove big air bubbles.
8. Bake at pre-heated oven for 45 minutes or until skewer inserted and come out clean.

My cake has little crack on top when bake in oven for about 40 minutes, I don't really care about this as most importantly it was very delicious, look at the photo to see the cake's texture, lovely!
