A Request

First a Happy & prosperous Chinese New Year and good health to everyone.

My youngest angel who is going to be 7 years old this year and now at the moment, her favourite is anything to do with rabbits. Even her hair clips is bunny. Both she and her mummy went shopping and bought a set of miffy plastic cutter for me to bake cookies, this is what she request for.... "Da Gu, can you made for me rabbit cookie" and I can't refuse any request from any of my angels.

I bake the cookies from this blog using the cutters they bought, had a hard time to cut the cookies (the insert is loose), manage to finish the lot.

After baking, I liked the teddy bear shape better than the rabbit, it looks cuter, that's what my daughter say so also. I loved the taste of this cookie, have a try, you will not regret it.

regain confidence

After having the success in baking pandan lapis few weeks ago, I begin to have some confidence back in baking Lapis cake. Since 10 over years back, when I have Ariston oven, I can' even bake a decent lapis.

This is my second Ariston oven, and upon advise of my friends, I play with the temperature and placing the tray on different rack level position and I have found the technique in baking lapis in this present oven. Although it's still not so perfect, but is better than I can't get a decent one.

Bake for My Loves

One of my niece is going to Shanghai for her school work attachment and she is going to be away for 5 months. I gather the rest of my angels to have a dinner with her, and her request to eat pasta, and yesterday night, Eight of us (6 angels + 2 old folks) went to Cujini Restaurant at Club Street, Boy! we loved the food that we ate. Actually this is not a special day, it just an excuse to eat together.

Before, we went to the restaurant, 2 of the angels came to my house to watch 3D movies on my TV. Knowing that they liked to eat brownie, took out Daniel Tay's Dessert book and tried out the recipe, I did try one of the chocoate mousse in the book and I liked it. Found that the portion is too big, I halved the recipe and baked in a 8" x 11" x 1.5" baking tin.

325 g Plain (All Purpose) Flour
5 g Baking Powder
150 g Cocoa Powder

450 g Unsalted Butter
400 g Eggs
300 g Walnuts (chopped)
Butter for greasing

Sift flour, baking powder and cocoa powder into a mixing bowl and leave aside.
