Sibu Kampua Mee 寺巫干盘面

Being a Malaysian, I am a bit(yes, a bit only) shy to say that I have never been to Sarawak. I give myself an excuse that it is too far away from my lovely hometown, Penang island. The air ticket is quite expensive to travel from here to there. But, I think that I am lucky enough to know a friend from Sarawak, which willing to share with us the recipe of their local famous food, Kampua mee ("Gam Mua" noodle (干盘面)). Kampua mee is from Sibu and it is Fuzhou (福州) food. My first impression about Kampua was it almost same as dry Wan Tan Mee (干云吞面), as the sauce is black in colour and it is dry mee. Well, look at the recipe and cooking method, let's compare the differences.

 

Banana Muffin | Homemade Muffin

I do not bake for a period of time due to no oven with me in Japan. I mentioned that I miss my smart oven in Penang from the post of Peach Cheesecake. Well, after few months of stay in my apartment, I do not realize that actually I have an oven in my apartment. It is conventional oven where it can be used to toast, grill, bake and also act as microwave oven. A friend of mine discovered this and told me that I can bake, huuray! If not, I think I won't realize that I have an oven with me. Haha.. 

 

Mae Salong Restaurant | Sungai Petani

We were very surprised and excited when we arrived at there. Environment is very good to me. We like Bali style and their design is very closed to Balinese design. We snap few photos and quickly order foods as many people were dining there.

 

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.

I always afraid the caramel will stick on my pan when it turn brown, but thank God that I have successfully cook it nicely and no burning sugar stick on my pan.

Since it is a steamed cake, it's texture is similar to huat kuih/fatt koh发糕. If make it into cupcake, it is just like huat kuih发糕. When my mom ate this, she said it is malai ko马来糕. With her comment, she gave me inspiration to bake malai ko next time.

Hi Raymund, I totally agree with you. I am thinking to do other steam cake during my stay at mom's house, where oven is not available. :-)

Steaming is a good option and this will be a big hit in the Philippines where oven is not available in every household
