Butter Cake Recipe (Egg Separation Method)

Butter 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, softened150g caster sugar4 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!

James Foo Western Food | Tanjong Tokong Penang

James Foo western food is located in Tanjung Tokong Penang. I have heard of it's popularity since years ago, but have not find a chance to try it. Last two weeks, we have decided to go there for dinner. Without disappointment, we are quite satisfied with the food, on the portion and taste. We ordered steak without mentioned on how well we want the beef to be cooked. When the steak was served, we were surprised to see the steak was medium well cooked. We can still see blood came out from the beef, it was yummy.

I would like to share a very simple dish that I cooked yesterday, homemade yakitori. Yakitori (焼き鳥) is a Japanese type of skewered chicken. It is made from few bite-sized chicken meats, skewered on a bamboo skewer over charcoal.  

 

Easy Egg Tart Recipe

I make it! I make it! After years of phobia, I finally overcome it with this recipe. An egg tart recipe that I found from other blogger. I got the recipe and bought a can of evaporated creamer for quite some times. Last weekend, I decided to bake this recipe. When I saw the egg tarts were nicely came out from my smart oven, I was so happy and feel worth it to bake them in front of hot oven on this super hot weather day. This few weeks, the weather in Penang was so hot. It makes my body hot, temper hot! Thank God that the egg tarts turn out nicely, or else somebody might need to sacrifice and listen to my complain again.

Durian_7June of year 2011 is the best time to indulge durians, the King of Fruits. Compare to past few years, this year durian's harvest is better and hence the price is predicted to drop week after week. (Hope my prediction is correct!)

Last weekend we had an outing visiting durian farm at Genting, Balik Pulau, Penang. It is the farm of my dad's friend. On our way to the farm, I saw many stores selling durians at roadside. The durian's aromatic scent awakened my groggy head.

After half an hour journey, full with excitement, we had arrived at the farm. I grabbed the opportunity to take photos of variety fruits tree to show my "city niece". At the age of 8 years old, her life is more bussier than mine with tuition class, art class, piano lesson, swimming lesson, english course, math course...and she has never been to durian farm hence has no sense about what is "kampung life", the life of nature.

I will continue to hunt for durians until the end of durian season, despite the fact that I gained some weight already since last month. Before I end my writing, I want to say "Durian, I Love You!".

Wow, that durian looks so good! I once went to a durian plantation in Penang too early ( may) and didn't get to see or eat a lot of durians. I probably should go back now!

By the way, Fleur de Sel is a gourmet salt- the crystals of which look like a flower. If you can't find this, just use normal salt.
