The Hideous Apple Pieuff


بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Assalamualaikum people.

I noticed that I talk a lot about food during Ramadhan. That explained why my plan of losing weight never go right. Anyway, I made APPLE PUFF from scratch using Apple Pie recipe. It's like a puff that taste like a pie. Does that make sense to you guys? -,-''. You can refer to the recipe HERE

You see, my mother is a big fan of food made up from flour. Cakes, doughnuts, churros, pies, she likes them all. My cousin dropped a plastic bag filled with apples and no one pay attention to the fruits for days. Few days back, my mother asked me whether I happen to know how to bake an apple pie. Being a good daughter I am *cough cough I search for the recipe immediately. #myparentsaresolucky.

I have everything an excellent apple pie needs except a pie tray, case loyang or whatever you call it. I couldn't find the bowl that can go into the oven so I decided to make a puff instead. This is my first time making pie and I already being derhaka to the recipe. No wonder it turns out so ugly. I was always nervous when I cook. Not that it turns out good, I am nervous because I always mess up things. Hahaha

Looooooong short story, here is my hideous Apple Pieuff. 


I followed everything the recipe asked except the oven temperature. I lowed it a bit since the puff is thinner and smaller than a whole pie. The best part was when I googled for another recipe and I found Mat Gebu's Apple Pastry Puff. Even Mat Gebu just used store-bought pastry for that particular recipe! Why did I prepare the dough like crazy for such hideous puff?????????????? Rolling them out some more!!!!!!! *sobbing uncontrollably.  

Anyhow, the taste was umphhhhh 5 stars, scrumptious, sweet, soft, crumbly, flaky, tasty ........ Who's going to praise the food I made if not me? Muahahah. But seriously, you can't go wrong with Azlita's recipes. She's very good and her recipes are always meticulously told in her blog. Go check them out! And do forget to obey everything. Don't be like me. T___T

Thanks for reading everyone!
Have a blissful Ramadhan!
Be good, do good.

Agar Agar Lapis Milo


بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Assalamualaikum people!

Happy 3rd Day of Ramadhannnn! Mueheheh. Did you miss satan?. Lol. Kidding. I should be in class right now but nahhh. It's the first week of my new semester, no one's going to class. I lie. Some excellent students are already attending the classes. It's me and my up-to-no-good friends are skipping classes. The result for previous final exam was released and I couldn't be more grateful and happier. The result was so unexpected it made me doubt myself. Alhamdulillah.

Anyway, I decided to celebrate myself with some brownies a day before puasa. So the brownies was very delicious, so fudgy, much chocolate, such taste! No, I didn't do it from scrap. I bought the boxed one and just add eggs, water and minyak jagung. That why it's delicious huuuuuuuu. Since I love celebration, I decided to make Agar Agar Lapis Milo. Lemme share the recipe with you guys. I took it from HERE and modified it here and there according to my taste (and mom's order).


Too lazy to edit the lighting of this photo. 




Ingredients:

1 pack of agar agar powder
1 tin condensed milk
800 ml of plain water (used the milk tin. I put like 1200 ml tho since mom said it's going to be too keras)
1 helai daun pandan (knotted it babehh)
3/4 cup of sugar
3 tablespoon of Milo (I used like 1 cup hahahah)
A pinch of salt.

Steps:



Mix well sugar and agar agar powder. Pour in the milk and plain water. Throw the knotted pandan leaves into the pot and put it on medium heat. Stir well until it boiled. Be careful when stirring because milk makes the mixture boil like crazy. Not so much of crazy but it boiled with large bubbles.


Now that the mixture cook, divide it into two different pots. One pot you add pinch of salt, another one add in Milo. Let them sit on low heat so it didn't get harden.

Another step is to layer them. Take a loyan or whatever bekas you want to use. Pour milk mixture first. One it id cold and hard, pour Milo mixture on top of it. 

You may want to scratch the surface of the previous layer with fork before adding another layer just so they stick well. Or else, they might come off as individual layer. That would be so disappointing.

It requires patience. I am not a patient person I almost mix them up altogether since I need to wait for one layer to be done before adding another. Fuhhh. 

To help with the cooling process, you can put your loyang on wet towel and under a fan or near a fan or even more extreme, in a fan. You know, just so it cools down faster. I did not do that. I am not a smart being. *cries

Then, put the loyang inside a fridge. Let it gooooo NO. Let it cool completely for few hours and then you can stuff your mouth with the amazing agar agar lapis milo.


Anyway, you guys might want to see how impatient me affect the agar agar. Are you ready to see some grotesque agar agar? Okay, your choice.

The layers are all senget. They came in individual layer. Some even got those fork scratches on them. Lol. I like how they came in individual layer. Like you buy a pack of Munchys biscuit that says it comes with 8 individual pack. So hey! Here's my agar agar lapis milo. They come in individual layer. -.- Whatever.

That's it. Wow I have grown so much I started sharing recipe. Wow might as well sharing the butt secret of my friend I mentioned in previous entry hahahah.

Happy Ramadhan people!
Thanks for reading. Be good do good.

The Best Choc Cake


بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Assalamualaikum eaters!

I really love eating so I try to balance the not so good hobby of mine with baking and cooking. I can't say that I am good in any of them but I sure can mix flour with eggs. Can't promise you with the final outcome though. Anyway, no matter what cakes I try eating, I always go back to chocolate cakes. They are sort of my comfort food. Nahhh, kidding. Comfort food is nasik with telur mata kerbau kuning cair and some kicap for sure. So, I went searching for new choc cake recipes and I found a very interesting yet super easy one from Kak Azie's BLOG

The ingredients are:

1. 2 cawan tepung gandum
2. 2 cawan gula caster (I use brown sugar because it makes cakes taste differently sweet)
3. 3/4 cawan serbuk koko Hershey's (I used random serbuk koko because Hershey's is expensive lol)
4. 2 sudu soda bicarbonate
5. 1 sudu baking powder
6. 1 cawan buttermilk (susu + 1 sudu besar cuka makan/lemon) I didn't have any lemon and couldn't find vinegar so I squeeze limau nipis into the milk hahah. 
7. 1 cawan minyak jagung
8. 1 1/2 sudu kecil vanilla extract
9. 1 cawan air mendidih
10. 2 biji telur gred A (I used Grade c so I added one extra egg)









Steps:

First step is to preheat or panaskan your oven at 150 degree celsius. We are going to bake it slowly. Slowly and surely babyy mueheheh. 

Then don't forget to butter/sapu your loyang with butter or margarine or you can alas the loyang with baking paper.

Put all the ingredients except the air mendidih into mixing bowl and mix them at slow speed. Make sure you mix them well. Jangan bagi ketul ketul or anything.

Then, add the air mendidih into the mixture and continue mixing for another few minutes until it turns smooth and nice.

Pour it into the loyang or baking tin. Put them into the oven and bake them for 1 hour and 10 minutes. In my case, the oven is so slow so I had to bake them for about 2 hours. #ohmyelectricbills

Test the cake with forks/garfu or lidi sate anything. If it comes out clean, the cake is readyyyy to go into your mouth. Hurrayyyy! But, do let it cool down first. We don't want any burn tongue or cheek or melted teeth.

Done! Phew. I typed one short recipe and now I feel so tired and feel like sleeping for two days straight. Bloggers who always share their recipes are so cool. Do you even rest sisturrr? Hahah. And oh, I don't have any pictures of the cake. Reason being is, the cake is already half eaten during the cooling process. Talk about hot. *roll eyes. 

Another reason is, MY CAKE IS SO UGLY. LIKE REALLY UGLY. And the cause for the ugliness is that I forgot to butter my loyang so the cake won't come out from the loyang. After being hentak-ed few times on the plate, it came out in pieces. OMG. My heart shattered at the sight but my stomach knows no beauty. So yeah, I ate the cake not by slices but more like chunky pieces. *sobbing real hard.

Anyway, do try the recipe! I won't try any other recipe after this. Well, not for this few months. The cake was really delicious. Ngehngeh. Not to say I cook well, but yeah. Hope I shared something good! Happy baking and happy eating everyone!

Thanks for reading. Till next time.
Be good, do good.
SELAMAT MENYAMBUT RAMADHAN PEOPLEEEE!
