Coconut Chiffon Cake

Started the day with a parent teacher conference for my son, Sash.  All went well, thank the mighty Lord. It was always a big thing in the family when we have a parent teacher conference day.  Well, it did not end at that, infact I had my first facial cleaning done after almost many years at a friends spa, Alysim Spa.  It was like I was in the torture bed (like the one you see in the movie "SAW") tears was rolling down my eyes when she was poking and picking out all the blackheads.  Well, I can see that I look years younger

Okay, after the long day out, I just could not sit still at home so I decided to make my 2nd try on chiffon cake.  Well, what do u turned out marvelous and super spongy and soft.  I just could not believe that I am starting to make the one thing that I feared most.....CHIFFON CAKES !  Tomorrow is going to be another big day for me. Going to start making some cookies for Deepavali ( Indian Festival). Trying to watch Deuce Bigalow and surf the net, wow me..! Catch up tomorrow...

Rock Drops

Found this recepi by accident at Jo's Deli website. I remember doing this cookie when I was in my cooking class at school.  Its brings back a lot of memories. This goes so well with a glass of milk !!

    200g butter, cold but not hard
    400g cake flour
    3 tsp baking powder
    75g brown sugar
    75g castor sugar
    150g sultanas
    2 eggs, lightly beaten
    4 tbsp milk   

  1. Lightly grease or line baking tray with greaseproof paper. Preheat oven at 190 degC.
  2. Sift cake flour and baking powder into a mixing bowl. Rub butter with your fingers or K-beater until mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  3. Stir in sugars and sultanas.
  4. Add eggs and milk to the mixture and mix to form a dough.
  5. Spoon mixture on to the prepared baking tray, spacing them well apart to prevent them from sticking together while baking.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
  7. Remove rock drops from baking tray. Serve hot or let cool completely on a wire rack. Store in air tight container.

Pandan Chiffon Cake

I was wondering what I could make before the kids got home from school and came up with this beautiful spongy cake with the wonderful aroma of pandan....Well, I actually made this cake from scratch and followed the recipe from Diana's Dessert when I realised that i had actually used bread flour instead of regular flour. I was really surprised that the cake turned out to be the best.

Hey, I have just started this blog and I didn't realize how difficult it was going to be to get started with my first post. What do I write about !! Sure there are enough topics with my interest in cooking and baking and of course I thought of starting this blog with just writing a few lines about me.  I have a 4 beautiful kids and a wonderful husband and a beautiful pet dog, Snickers. Whom has been with us since 2006. Will be posting more pictures of my family.
