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.

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.

久违了,回来已经一个多星期了,才来得及写第三天的行程.一回来没心之余,工作又开始忙,写行程的速度必然慢了.废话不多说,进入话题吧! 24/10/2012 7:17今天是第三天了,出门旅游时间总是过得特别快。今天的早餐也是香港点心,希望可以来得丰富一些。比起昨天,今天的比较不错,但小点心种类不多。看看照片就可以数出有多少种了。要是把粥和面条换去点心,那有多好呢?

Yakitori_3

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.





 



Japanese like to order yakitori during dinner with a group of colleagues or friends, eat with some other dishes and drink with beer or sake , Japanese alcoholic drink.

Besides chicken, they also used chicken heart, liver, chicken wing, ox tongue, squid and others to make yakitori.

On Friday, I bought a bottle of yakitori sauce from supermarket near my company. At night, I merinate the chicken meats with the yakitori sauce. The next morning, I grilled the chicken meats and ate together with rice. I do not follow the way Japanese cook and just put the chicken on top of alluminium foil and grilled them. It was delicious and very easy to prepare.

I am not sure where to get it in Malaysia. May be we can get it in supermarket such as Jusco or Cold Storage, or shops in town that selling all those Japanese food? Anyone knows where to get it?

Hi Juju, yes, you can substitute the sauce with something else..i grill it with gas cooker, they gas cooker here comes with a partition where you can grill chicken, fish or other food. Just take care of the chicken not to overcook or burn will do, no temperature setting is needed. You can grill it in your oven as well, temperature wise, maybe set it to 150deg? or 180deg? Grill until it is cook will do.
