Indonesia Layer Cake with Cranberries Recipe

When I looked back my post on Hawflakes Layer Cake, I just realised that it has been more than one year since I last baked my Indonesia layer cake. I bought a can of butter for baking layer cake and kept until it was expired. I quickly grab it to bake for my next Indonesia Layer Cake with Cranberry. This time, I follow exactly the recipe in my blog too, with slight modification, I change the filling to cranberries. For my hawflakes and prune layer cake, I managed to bake a total of 8 layers cake but for this one, I get only 7 layers. It was still very delicious and as good as last two cakes! I spent less than 3 hours for this cake. You can substitude cranberries with raisins too if you like as the taste of cranberries in this cake taste very similar to raisins. Recipe here: (more picture can refer here) Ingredients: 340g tinned butter180g icing sugar (sifted)1tbsp sweet condensed milk 12 egg yolk1/2tsp vanilla essense1tbsp brandy (optional) 100g plain flour (sifted together with mixed spice)1.5tsp mixed spice 4 egg white Some cranberry and red colouring Method: 1.

Dinner at いろはかるた Izakaya 居酒屋| Kyoto Japan

Izakaya居酒屋is a place where Japanese gather together for eating, drinking, smoking and talking. To be more precise, it is a place for them to drink, drink, drink and drink non-stop. Since it is a place for drinking, many Izakaya provide drinking buffer (飲み放題 "nomihoudai") package. If you are to order a set package, many of them come with appetizer, main dishes, salad, dessert and some side dishes. The drinks are buffet type and you can choose from soft drink, wine, cocktail, sake and others. Most of them are alcohol. I have visited to many of the Izakaya during the stay in Japan. Most of the times were attended farewell or welcoming party with Japanese colleague. I have no chance to take good photo during dining with them.

 

How Chiffon Cake Works? The More You Want to Know About Chiffon Cake

Something About Myself with Chiffon Cake Some time ago, I have been working on chiffon cake. I failed almost all times when come to chiffon cake, like this one. Even though I had attended a part time baking course on baking chiffon cake, but when bake on my own, I still failed to handle it. I am not sure of what causes them failed, at the end I gave up on chiffon cake and any cakes that need folding egg white into egg yolk mixture, because I handled this so BADLY.

 

Macallum Connoisseurs Cafe | Lebuh Macallum, Penang

Camus and I took a day off from our busy life to enjoy our own sweet time. He brought me to this cafe located at Lebuh Macallum. He told me we can have our breakfast with coffee and bread kind of breakfast which I like. We arrived there on weekday morning around 10:30am and the cafe was very empty, only one customer during the time we were there. Plenty of parking space outside the cafe. Cakes at RM13 per piece! After enter the cafe, a young man passed us a menu, we seated and read through the menu. I was shocked when look at the menu and do not know what to order at the first glance, I focus on the price and feel hard to choose my meal as they are very expensive to me. In the end, we get one Macallum breakfast and Smoked Salmon Bagel, one cafe latte and one cappucino, there gone our RM55! Talk about the cafe, I found this cafe is quite nice as the fragrance really attracted me when I first enter the cafe. I like the fragrance and it is quite different with other cafe as I can smell something soury. I am not sure what is this fragrance until I get my latte and cappucino. The sweet aroma of coffee taking over my senses, they are creamy, smooth coffee I longed for. Cappucino and Latte Maccallum breasfast came with sunny side up, avocado, chicken frankfurter, chicken bacon, grilled capsicum, baked potatoes, bread and salad. Portion is quite big. I like the chicken frankfurter which the size like german sausage. Smoked salmon bagel came with smoked salmon with wasabi cream cheese, rocket leaves and pinch of capers. I do not understand most of the terms mentioned in the menu except for "smoked salmon". Now as I am writing, I compare the menu and photo I took, I cannot find "wasabi cream cheese" from my photo, why? Mana dia pi? Oh, the one spread between the bagel? It's wasabi cream cheese? Not butter? To me, this smoked salmon has nothing special but I do like rocket leaves. And now I know what is capers, it is the small tiny things appeared on top of the roll smoked salmon. Ooppsss, we do not finish that even though only served with 3 biji, what a waste? I thought they were just a decoration to the smoked salmon... Overall, Macallum Connoisseurs Cafe is a good place to enjoy coffee but sincerely, it was a very expensive experience to me.

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.

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.

GreenIsland

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.

GI_3

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.
