涩嫩南瓜牛油蛋糕 Pumpkin Butter Cake (Mrs NgSK's Butter Cake)

天气变暖和了;
我的头也跟着气候的上升而感觉热乎乎的。
我这个人有个怪病,
天气再冷我也能够抵挡,
就是不能忍受那火球般热烘烘的太阳。
尤其在没有白云空荡荡的蓝天下,
太阳一冒出来,我的眼睛第一时间就抗议了。
接下来就是我非得吃败仗。
不敢出门,天天躲在家里是上上策。
看见大家都在为那大南瓜忙进忙出,
我反正也闲在家里,
就凑凑热闹吧!
千变万化的南瓜贴子,看得我眼花缭乱。
最后决定做个简单的牛油蛋糕。
话说这牛油蛋糕嘛,那天在马六甲和妹妹一起试做了,
果然名不虚传,很好吃。
今天就加入南瓜,没想到我老公特别喜欢。
总算有收获。

黑牛肉咖喱 (Black Beef Dry Curry Chef Ismail)



回了一趟家乡,心情是美好的。
看到祖母和外婆都健康平安,心里踏实了很多很多。
多少年了,两姐妹都没有在同一张床上睡觉;
那种感觉还真是奇妙。
聊着聊着。。就这样睡着了。
两个没有老公在身边的女人,再加一个小妹,
就这样叽叽喳喳,闲着,逛着,吃着,很快的一个星期就溜走了。
有家人在身边是幸福的。
但是,人在大马,心里却很想念在澳洲的老公。
孩子也很想念爸爸。
无可否认,他确实是我们心中最重要的人。

嗯。。今天就来个家乡牛肉饭吧!
这个食谱,我和朋友Diana都很喜欢。
第一次吃时,我们都有惊喜,喜欢。
做法有点复杂,但是做香料时,多做一些冷藏;
那么下次就不麻烦了。

黄梨酥饼(Pineapple Tarts)

假日老公不在家是少有的。
也好,难得我一个人,乐得清静。
收拾冰箱时,看到上两个星期拌好的黄梨馅料。
一直想做,但苦于没时间,就这样一直搁着。
既然闲着,我就开始动手做了它。
之前就一直很想做这看来比较容易的食谱。
但是,看容易,要做到工整还不是一般的容易。
这个食谱和做法,我本人还是很喜欢。
最重要是不用多多模具也可以做到;而且好吃。
值得一提的是我还是第一次把炼乳加入蛋黄里再扫面。
其实也没什么特别,但是挺新鲜的感觉。
好像学了一样新事物,很高兴。
这个看来能用在面包上,应该不错。
下次会尝试的。

巧克力粒饼干 (Double-Choc Chips Cookies)

很久没有和女儿一起烘焙了。
她一直嚷着要做 choc-chip  cookies, 因为她说她最喜欢吃这饼干。
是吗?为什么我一直都不知道的?
我呢?不喜欢吃这种饼干。
我宁愿吃乒乓牌的苏打饼,也不愿意吃这种甜甜的饼干。
既然她都开口了,我也不想扫兴;
两个人很快的就把这饼干做好了,
然后就是痴痴的等吃。
抱着两罐饼干,一面看电影,一面吃着,
看来她真的很享受哦。
也好,至少她也上了一堂烘焙课。
这种简单的食谱很适合她这种年龄,
是时候让她自己学着做喜欢的食谱了。

Recipe adapted from Donna Hay

Ingredients:
  • 125g butter, chopped
  • 1 cup caster sugar (i used brown sugar)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • ⅓ cup (80ml) milk
  • 2 cups (300g) plain (all-purpose) flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup dark & white chocolate chips
Method:
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (355ºF). 
  2. Place the butter, vanilla, sugar, egg, milk, flour, cocoa and baking powder in a food processor and process until a soft dough forms. 
  3. Place dough in a bowl and stir through the chocolate chunks. Shape 2 tablespoons of dough into flat rounds and place, allowing room to spread, on baking trays lined with non-stick baking paper. 
  4. Bake for 15 minutes or until brown. Cool on trays. Makes 18. 
  5. To check if the cookies are done, look at the bottom not the top. If you wait until the top looks right you risk overcooking them. To check, lift a cookie with a spatula so you can see underneath. The bottom should be a deep brown colour. Cool on trays as the cookies will continue to cook after you’ve removed them from the oven.

Mee Rebus


我老公想吃mee rebus 不是一两天的事了。
妈妈家外面的那档 Mee Rebus 和 Mee Rojak 都是我们喜欢的。
还有就是我家婆也很厉害煮这Mee Rebus。
既然她那么厉害煮,我当然是坐着吃比较舒服咯。
再说,她的看家本事我通常都是“远观”及“欣赏”就好;
老人家嘛,都喜欢露两手自己的招牌菜来款待孩子和孙子们,
所以,我选择识趣的吃就好。
星期日是特别懒惰的日子。
尤其最近非常的忙,遇到假日,只想像死尸一样躺着不动。
可是提起Mee Rebus, 家里每个人的眼都亮了。
于是选择了比较简单的方式完成了这任务。
因为怕肥,用了金瓜和红番薯取代马铃薯。
味道还很不错。
至少吃起来不会那么充满罪恶感。

Kajang Satay & Sayur Lodeh With Ketupat


又是久久都没来这里了。
看来这片天已经被我埋葬了。
儿子也因为我很久没有更新网页,叮嘱我必须在礼貌和道德上知会大家一下。
我听了也只是一笑置之。
上星期和朋友闲谈时,朋友也提起我“荒废学业”一事;
天晓得还真的有人等着我翻新贴子。
这真的让我觉得非常的抱歉。
今晚就整理出一点时间,乖乖的坐着做作业吧!
想念很久的马来西亚Kajang Satay;
最后一次吃,应该是10年前了。
但是依然记得自己有多么的喜欢。
上网找了食谱,跟着做,学着做。
就这样做了我心目中喜欢的沙爹。
再来一个我家每个人都喜欢的sayur lodeh。
有菜,有肉,当然suka咯。
希望你也和我一样喜欢就好。
