Pillsbury Moist Supreme Cake Mix

I bought this Moist Supreme Cake Mix and keep for few weeks before my baking mood is back. Recently, I am too lazy to do baking, house keeping, reading, everything...even cutting cake into slices also lazy. Hence I decided to bake them in paper cups.

 

Kobe Beef and Kobe One Day Trip

After Kobe trip with wonderful kobe beef dinner on 3 years back, I have another chance to visit Kobe again to enjoy world's famous beef steak. From forum and internet, travellers' feedback on kobe beef lunch cannot beat dinner set. With previous experience which Camus and myself will never forget in our life, I decided to give lunch a try and then make a comparison between set lunch and set dinner. I did some survey before go for kobe beef lunch, Wakkoqu restaurant has many good review. So my plan is to visit this restaurant. We arrived at Sannomiya station on that day before 12pm and would like to have short walk around that area before go for lunch. When we just arrived at Sannomiya Hankyu Station, we saw a long queue outside another kobe beef restaurant. We walked closer to look at the menu, the price is more cheaper compare with Wakkoqu. I believed it has some good reasons why people queue for the meal. We followed the queue and had our kobe beef steak lunch. The restaurant I mentioned here is Steak Land. We were arranged to dine at second floor, they served in tepanyaki style and guests were sitted around the table while the chef will cook and serve at center area. After put order, they served us salad, miso soup, steak sauce and plain water. When they brought two big pieces of beef (for 4 serving) to the table, I was regretted with my decision made. By looking at the kobe beef, it looks not fresh with brown in colour. Oh no, my main target for this trip gone. I had to stop blaming myself at that moment and pray hard that the beef will turn out good in taste. Compare with previous kobe beef dinner, I had to agreed that lunch is really not as good as dinner. After looking at how the chef cook the steak (obviously not as "proffesional" as our kobe beef dinner's chef), I started to enjoy my meal. I changed my mind after my first bite on the medium cook kobe beef, it was still soooooo soft and melt in mouth. With 2980yen for this set lunch, I can say I was satisfied with it at this price. Of course, if you aim for better quality and environment, I would recommend Mouriya Restaurant which we went for dinner. After the lunch, we proceeded with our trip at Kobe area. We walked from Sannomiya to China Town, then to Harbourland. Then end our one day trip at Kobe. I wish to return again for next Kobe beef romantic dinner with my dear Camus.

 

Instant Ramen Museum | Osaka, Japan

Instant Ramen Museum is located at Ikeda-shi, Osaka. You can experience making your own cup noodle here. If you would like to make noodle from sratch, here is the place for you too. Besides, the history of the chicken ramen development, which is the world’s first instant ramen, and the changes in many products over the years can be found here too. Entrance is free unless you want to buy cup noodle or attend the making noodle class. I visited this museum to make my cup noodle. After seeing through the ramen history and development process, I bought two empty cups from vending machine inside the museum, 300 yen per cup. Then I was arranged to sit at "art class corner" to draw and decorate my cup. After finished, I proceed to collect my ramen and choose the ingredients I like. You can choose 4 out of 10 ingredients. Then you can choose your soup base before proceed to final packing. It is fun to make your own cup noodle, I did not join the making noodle class as it is reservation at earlier time. Overall, it was a fun experience here and I will enjoy my cup noodle with Camus after return to Penang.

 

Bento Set | Kyoto Station, Japan

According to Camus, experience of eating a bento set in train while traveling from one place to another place is a must in Japan. In order to not make our trip a regretted one, we bought a bento set in Kyoto Station when we were headed to Arashiyama in Kyoto, Japan.

BlackSesameChiffon_4Me: God, help me! Please raise my chiffon cake high high, and hold it tight!
God: Girl, this is not the way of making chiffon cake, you need more practise.

Arrrrhhhhh! Another dissapointment when baking chiffon cake. Why? Why? Why? ... Why my chiffon cake doesn't rise up high? What happened to it? Problem with my egg york mixture? Egg white? Or my mixing method? Oven temperature? Baking time? ...

I can't give myself an answer, bake chiffon cake is a tough job to me, my chiffon cake always sink after removed from my smart oven.

However, the cake tasted good, but I am not satisfied with the texture and moisture of it. It might be due to short baking time or during the mixing process.

1-donot over beat egg white or cake turns out dry. But yes, you do have to beat to peak - just do not over beat.

2- the moment u take it out from the oven straight away turn it upside down and leave it until it is totally cool b4 u turn it up again. Guarantee it will not collapse.

Hi, I was looking for Black Sesame Chiffon cake and I came upon you. I had the same problem when I started to bake chiffon cake before. The only main thing is just make sure when you beat the egg white first beat to soft peaks, gradually add in sugar and beat to STIFF Peaks! Then you will be okay. I used medium eggs. Good luck to you

hi Delia, thanks for your comment. I think I do not use folding method, but "cut in" method. I will try it again and hope will be successed this time. :-)
Large egg also another concern? Hmm...will go to buy large egg, I use medium size... :sad:

Hi, make chiffon cakes with large eggs, turn upside down straight after coming out from oven. Egg whites need to be beaten properly and using folding method to fold into egg yolk mixture. Hope you will be successful in making chiffon cake.
