From my kitchen : Traditional butter cake

Yesterday was another free day for me. I was having a term break for this weekend..meaning, I do not have any classes on this weekend.
My baking mood was on..so after lunch, I got ready all the ingredients needed and started baking "traditional butter cake." Actually it was my second time baking this cake. Few weeks ago, I did bake it and I found the cake is moist and although keep for 2-3 days, it still soft and moist.

After busy in the kitchen for an hour.....at last, my butter cake is ready. I topped up lot of mixed fruits on top the cake.I also added some raisins in between the batter,but it seem the raisins are all go to the bottom of the cake.

250gr   butter
4          eggs (separate egg yolk and egg white)
50 gr + 150 gr   caster sugar
200 gr  self raising flour
60 ml    fresh milk
1 tsp     vanilla essence

1. Beat egg white until soft peaks, then add 50gr caster sugar, beat till stiff.
2. In another bowl, beat butter & 150gr caster sugar until pale. Add vanilla essence ,followed by egg yolk one at a time.
3. Pour in half of the flour,mix on low speed.
4. Pour in the milk ( in 2 additions ) and lastly mix the balance of the flour.
5. Put in 1/2 of egg white into the above batter,mix well.
6. Using a spatula, pour in the balance of egg white and mix them well.
7. Preheat the oven, bake the cake for about 45 mins.

What he Loves to do...

Since Ryan joins K2 this year, he has to miss out his colouring class due to my busy schedule during weekend. I really don't have a free time to send and pick him up from the school...so just give it a miss. Instead, during our free time, I will spend about an hour to guide Ryan how to mix colour and blend the colour to make the picture looks great. Frankly speaking, I am not good in art at all,but I managed to curi  some simple techniques on how to blend the colour,etc ....from Ryan's previous art teacher.

So these are what we have done during last month and this month....... I gave Ryan some guidances and let him do the colouring part.

From my kitchen : Steamed Egg Cake

Yesterday night was a free night for me, we have an early dinner and I have "extra time" before watching the Spore Drama on AEC channel at 8.30pm.
My hand felt itchy and I started to find some cake recipe that I have in my recipe book.
Since I have all the ingredients needed for Steamed Egg Cake, I got myself busy in the kitchen for half an hour. It is a simple cake  that my family love it so much.

After beating the ingredients and steaming for half an hour (in high heat).....Here is the cake for our breakfast this morning...

We finished up this cake in  an hour time and I may consider to make one again later in the afternoon since I have extra Sprite(soft drink) in my fridge. Yes... Soft drink like 100 plus or Sprite or 7 Up is one of the ingredient to make this cake.

Cheddar CheeseCake

Cheesecake is always my favourite cake. The other day when I was doing my grocery shopping, I grabbed a pack of cheddar cheese for Ryan. Ryan love to eat cheese and sometimes I will just make a simple cheese sandwich for his tea time at school.
I was wondering whether can I make a cheesecake using this Cheddar Cheese.....how does it taste like??

Then I started to find some recipe online on cheddar cheesecake.At last, I managed to find one good recipe from Nasi Lemak Lover's blog.

From my own experience, preparation of this cake is more time consuming because you need to beat the egg white and egg yolk separately. And it is my first experience baking a cake in "water bath" method.

And the result........

....... SomeThing that I love to ......

..it is nothing than receiving a prize from the contests that I have joined before. Although they are just a small prizes,but I felt happy that I won something from my own efforts. I received all the prizes before Chinese New Year. Due to my hectic schedule and interruption on my internet network, only today I managed to get this 'post' done.
