When i was a kid, the only cake i know is 鸡蛋糕 Ci Tan Kou (steamed egg sponge cake). But i have no chance to learn this cake from my Ah Mah (grandmother) and other types of kuih-mueh (cakes) from her as she passed away when I still young. Luckily i have blogger friend Jane's Ah Mah recipe, so I can taste a truly old fashion of steamed sponge cake, Thanks to Jane's Ah Mah!
After rest for few day of Deepavali holiday (I noticed few bloggers wish me a Happy Diwali, maybe they thought me is Indian ^^, because my name?) and kids also not going to school, feel lazy to start update a post..Actually i have took a lot of food picture, just lazy to write the recipe...Anyway, i want to post this pumpkin cake before Aspiring Bakers #12: Traditional Kueh (October 2011) end in few day times..
Today i made Tiramisu again, using my previous recipe but this time I added extra chocolate ganache as kids claimed the previous Tiramisu was not so sweet..and also inspired by Terri's Eggless Tiramisu.
Here is another kuih that i wanted to make long ago, since this month Aspiring bakers calling us to make kuih, so i have no excuses not try out this time. A very simple kuih, cooked mung bean coat with batter and deep fry.
Yesterday i just realized that the pasar malam (night market) at my place Setia Alam is the longest pasar malam in Malaysia and also included in The Malaysia Book of Records. I grap this opportunity to record down this special moment and share with you..
Just realized that month of October left few more days to go. I have made few other type of kuihs, need to quickly post before Aspiring Baker#12: Traditional Kueh end. I have seen so many blogger friends did this Ondeh-Ondeh, this small ball with palm sugar seem is everyone's favourite. This is also one of my favourite kueh too.
The other day Jane saw my Ham Chim Peng post and she tak boleh tahan (can’t wait) and tempted her to try. On the other hand, I saw her Bourke Street Croissant and I also tak boleh tahan (can’t wait) and tempted to try, hahaha..Later her sister Helena also made. I told them how nice if three of us are living nearby, then must be very fun, we will non-stop baking and eating, hehehe..I love croissant, usually I will take croissant first whenever I take buffet breakfast in a hotel…
I would like to dedicate this post to a reader name Joanne who sent me the “Ang Ku Kuih" mould with 福 （happiness, good fortune, blessing ）printing. Joanne was requested me to send her some Ramie stem as she wanted to plant it. Chinese peoples especially Hakka family using Ramie leaf (厝叶）to make kuih (steam cake). According to Joanne, Malaysia Hakka family called this kuih as " choo yap ban~ 粗叶茶果/粗叶板" or also called it "woo char guo". As for Hokkien family, we called this kuih as "Oh Ku Kuih" as this kuih look black, " Oh" means black in Hokkien...

Earlier i have few posts on Shanghai trip, actually i first go to Xiamen then only transfer to Shanghai.
Xiamen is a small island and very similar to Penang here..
When I made this Ham Chim Peng (is kind of Chinese doughnut) at home yesterday, I feel myself like 吃饱饭没事做 (Having nothing better to do after being fed), because I can easily find Ham Chim Peng in every morning wet market ^^....
This was not my 1st time making this yummy Nyona kuih (my old post here), i quite often making this kuih as this is one of my family favourite's kuih. Kuih Ketayap or Kuih Dadar is a rolled crepe (usually flavored with pandan juice) and filled with grated sweet coconut filling (flavored with gula melaka or Malaysian palm sugar).
Just realized that I have quite long did not post a simple Chinese dish. Today I would like to share this simple brinjal dish. I taken a similar brinjal dish in Xiamen China recently, the taste was forgetable. Even my kids don't like brinjal, also gave thumbs up to this dish, as they like the very flavour gravy from this dish, best to serve with a plate of steamed rice.
My son Lucas bringing these cake pops to school today as they are celebrating children's day while another son Desmond is bringing chocolate muffin instead. This was my 1st time did cake pops, not that difficult actually...
I have been experiencing missing comments when i tried to leave a comment in some of the blogs.I have this problem with those blogs with "full page" and "Embedded below pages" comment setting, but no problem with "pop up window". Did you have this same problem? I'm not sure how to resolve this problem, sorry to some of my bloggers friend not leaving comment to you but actually i did, just my comment don't appeared in your comment box.
This month Aspiring Bakers is calling us to make Traditional Kueh (Aspiring Bakers #12: Traditional Kueh (October 2011), so i quickly make my favourite Seri Muka.
Hi all, how was your weekend? I have been busy for the past few days. I brought my elder sister to see Consultant Psychiatrist (after her husband passed away for a year but she still not sleeping well at night and very often feel anxious. Earlier we thought this way of behaviour is ok since her husband just passed away but we see no improvement after a year, so we decided to bring her to see doctor, now she is under medication). Also i went to visit my sister-in-law who just gone through an operation of removal uterus due to tumor in her uterus, pity her and i do hope she will get well soon.
Ok, back today post, this is a pumpkin cake that i made using the half pumpkin that i bought earlier (i use the same pumpkin to make pumpkin black sesame bread earlier).
