hope she has a simple but memorable birthday.
Happy Birthday, Cheryl...

Steam Moist Chocolate Cake

The weather has been very warm, but it does not stop me
from baking chocolatery cake. Instead of baking it in
oven, this cake call for steaming. I guess steaming cake
will not be as 'heaty' as oven baked cake?

to me by one of my baking friend, Yew Yen. Thank you

185g butter
250g fine sugar
200ml evaporated milk
2 eggs
125g plain flour
70g cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1. combine sugar, evaporated milk, vanilla essence and butter in a saucepan.
Stir over low heat till sugar dissolved and butter has melted. Remove from heat.
2. Add the beaten eggs into the slightly cooled mixture and stir till well mixed.
3. Sift flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and soda into a large bowl.
4. Add eggs mixture over the flour. Stir till well mixed.
(Batter should be runny).
5. Lined and greased a 9 inch baking tin
6. Pour batter into baking tin and place into a steamer.
7. Cover the top of tin with a piece of aluminum foil.
8. Steam over medium heat for 45 mins.
9. Cool the cake in pan before turning out.

Chocolate Gateau Cake

My initial plan was to bake Tiramisu cake without alcohol for my elder darling girl 13th birthday. But due to tide schedule I had, I changed to this Chocolate Gateau Cake last minutes. She liked it so much that she had this cake almost all by herself (of course not at one go). The only thing that I felt bad was not decorate and present this cake better..

Tiramisu Cake

Tiramisu...this cake has been sitting in my bake list for long.
Since the day I had learnt this cake from Richard, I had bought
some of the ingredients from him then. Finally I decided to
bake this cake for my dear R's birthday today. Though the alcohol
in the cake was not suitable for children, but my girls still
had 2 small pieces each. And they requested me not to put
alcohol the next time, so they can eat more....Upon request,
I will soon bake another non-alcohol tiramisu cake for them...

This cake was highly recommended to me by hearty-bakes.
Looking at the nice bakes by her, I could imagine the fruity
aroma lingering in the air. I immediately book marked it and
buy the necessary ingredients needed for the cake. I followed
the recipe closely as not wanting to waste my fresh blueberries.
And whats more, I am baking 2 cakes at one go. Thanks to

Paper Sponge Cuppies

I have been MIA for long time. Busy, busy, busy...
Finally settled in new home with my new oven built. Wanted so much to bake something, but simply do not have time and energy to do anything. Reading fellows baker's blog is the greatest pleasure and mind relaxing for me during this period. Wished I could have ample strength and energy to start baking that moment.

To warm up my new oven, I have chosen Paper Sponge Cuppies from hearty-bakes .Texture is indeed very very soft and sweetness is just nice. I could have poured too much batter into the papercup, ended up with the cake rising too high and cracked...Nevertheless, thanks Jess for sharing this great recipe.

Fondant Rose

Getting ready for my last creaming lesson with Richard Goh.
After attending his lessons for so many months, not only I learn
lots of baking skills n tips, I have made lots of friends there. Its
really good to see everyone coming to class sharing their bakes
and also sharing where to get good bargains for baking essential
stuffs. No deny that everyone is enjoying learning and chatting
there. I definitely going to miss everyone and hope that we will
meet up some other days.

Below is the fondant roses I rushed to made last night. Recalling how
to mould these roses which I had learnt 2 years ago. Though the
roses is not in perfect shapes, but still this is hand-made.:)
This is to decorate my last lesson - Wedding Tiers Cake.
