Temptation Chocolate Banana Cake Recipe

I am back again to bake a birthday cake, a fresh cream birthday cake. This time I make chocolate banana cake for Camus's birthday. To me, I am lazy to make this type of cake as I will need to spend 3 hours and above (can up to 5~6 hours) to make a whole cake, from weighting ingredients to decorate the cake. Also, I will accumulate the left over ingredients like fresh cream, sponge cake mix and some others for months, or years...until they are expired...then throw them away. I really feel wasted to throw away those ingredients, and many times I also very lazy to make a move to stand in kitchen for whole afternoon on my weekend to make this type of cake. Of course, some time I "got form got ohm", I will do it happily just like this time, another chocolate banana cake was born in my kitchen, for an OLD baby that was born on 34 years ago. Let me share the recipe of this chocolate banana cake with photos I have taken.

Switch to medium speed and slowly pour in chocolate liquid from step 1 to sponge egg mixture and beat for another 2 minutes.4.

Before ending this post, I would like to wish Camus "Happy Birthday" and "Happy Everyday"!

 

Sukiyaki 鋤焼 | Dinner At Japanese Sensei House

When I was working in Japan, I attended Japanese class in order to improve my Japanese language. I have a Japanese teacher who taught me the Japanese language for about a year when I stayed there. Before the training end, I was invited to her house for dinner. I feel glad to have the opportunity to visit her house.

 

Xuan Feng Ramen Restaurant | Krystal Point, Penang

If talk about my favourite Japanese food, ramen is one of them, especially tonkotsu ramen, tan tan ramen and many more. In Penang, there are not many restaurant selling this ramen, at least I can't recall any restaurant that selling it. If you know, I will be happy if you willing to share with me. Xuan Feng restaurant was opened on last year end. I was so excited when my colleague informed me they serve tonkotsu ramen. I get to know this ramen during my stay in Japan, the soup was cooked with pork bone (of course with other ingredients too) for long hours, hence you will get a very thick and sweet soup base. On last year, colleagues celebrated my birthday at Xuan Feng. I was satisfied with their tonkotsu ramen.

GreenIsland_1Not long ago, there is one newly open western food restaurant open at The One, Bayan Lepas. Feedback from friends that they serve reasonable price range western food, just like James Foo. Although I am Penangite, but experience to dine in James Foo is only once. But that one time experience gave us a good impression on the food and price range. Due to far distance from home, we seldom have chance to visit there often. Hence this newly open restaurant is a good place for us to visit as it is nearer to our company and house. Wifi is available in the restaurant.

Our first visit was to celebrate birthday with colleague. They have chicken, fish, lamb, beef, combo, appetizer, soup and other to choose from.

I ate grilled chicken with BBQ sauce, it taste not bad but not what I was expected. The chicken was coated with flour and then grill, and it is boneless.

I prefer roasted chicken with BBQ sauce, the roasted chicken is roast without flour coated and serve with BBQ sauce, and it is chicken with bone.

Do not attempt to finish up your meal too fast, because you can make your own mini burger with your meal!

I make my mini burger, and I like the bread, it is soft sweet bun.

The food portion is not very big but with this price range I think it is still acceptable, but I saw the chicken maryland set is quite big. Some of them comment that James Foo is better.

For my next visit, I might want to try their combo set and roasted chicken.
