Moist chocolate cakes

I baked chocolate cakes last week to bring to my grandma's house when we visited her during the raya holidays, and a couple of extra cakes, 1 for us to eat at home and another to bring to my in-laws.

The cakes were moist and tasted great. However, I am not putting this cake on my menu just yet as I wanted to make another batch and try to steam it instead.

Mix fruits jelly

I made mix fruit jelly for iftar about 2 weeks ago, but have not been able to post it.

It's one of the simplest dessert to make, and the jelly doesn't require much time to set. I made it at about 4.30 p.m. and by iftar, the jelly is all set and cold, ready to be eaten.

I used agar-agar powder (swallow globe brand, the same one that I used in my previous post) to make the jelly. To make one, all you need to do is to cook the agar-agar powder based from the instruction given on the packaging, and then pour it in a container to set. Add in some mix fruits (I used canned mix fruits) and let it rest at room temperature for about 5 to 10 minutes before transferring it to the refrigerator to set.

Enjoy the jelly on its own or you can pour evaporated milk on top of it when serving.

Selamat hari raya aidilfitri

I've been super busy for the past one week, and don't even have the time to update my blog. I've been busy fulfilling the cookie orders, sewing the boys' raya clothes, travelling to Kedah 2 days before raya and back to Kuala Lumpur the following day, etc. Nasib baik sempat siapkan baju untuk my two little boys, just in time for raya.

Anyway, I would like to wish all Muslim, especially my dear family, friends and customers Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

In my first week of being a stay at home mom, I've made cakes and apam polkadot for iftar, cooked almost every day for the family, made cookies for sampling and a lot of other little things that I previously not able to accomplish due to the time constraint. Most importantly, we have managed to change our little daughter's sleep pattern. It is now back to normal and she now sleeps through the night, alhamdulillah.

Nestum cookies (biskut nestum) - RM21 for 50 pieces:

Apam polka-dot

A friend of mine asked if I can make something for her to sell at an event that she participated in and I made her apam polkadot. We spent our Saturday making them, we then packed 20 pieces in each container to sell at RM8.00 per container.

The event doesn't went well, not enough publicity I suppose as those staying near the place don't even know about the existence of the event.  Although my friend did not manage to sell a lot, but that is still okay for me as I get to practice making the apam.

For those interested to order, below is the pricing:

Apam polkadot (halal & homemade) - for polka-dots design:
20 pieces - RM8.00
40 pieces - RM15.00
50 pieces - RM18.00
100 pieces - RM32.00

For any other design, e.g. - Angry Birds apam:

50 pieces - RM21.00
100 pieces - RM38.00

Filling to choose from:
Blueberry filling
Strawberry filling
Kaya filling
Chocolate chips filling

As orders are freshly made, 2 days advance notice is required.

Pick up point will be in front of Giant S Park Desa Petaling. I can also deliver within Desa Petaling area. Do email for order or for any inquiry.
