Reanaclaire Bakes - Butter Rich Cake

BAKING MODE IS ON!   

Actually the baking mode was not on until one of my friends came visiting and she showed me how to bake some crisps with red bean paste.  When she was done with them, my baking interest rose up to my head... since the ingredients were just within reach, why not do something with them?  😄

Quickly I googled for a Butter Rich Cake!  It is one of my favourites and I didn't know that my sister loves it too.. just plain Butterich, no lemons, no orange juice or whatever added, she said.. She called it a Pound Butter Cake.... Alright, so I did it according to the recipe on my iPad right beside me...
I only remember taking the pictures after everything was done up!
After 45 minutes of baking, the Butter Cake is done!
Don't play play.... Reanaclaire can Bake!
Well, this was done on last week... and it was finished within 24 hours!

Then yesterday *Sunday*, my sister requested me to bake it again...
It was Father's Day!
This time I did it differently.... I baked them in a muffin tray.....
Muffins took a shorter time..only 25 minutes and they were done!


Looks good, eh.... despite the toothpaste holes... hehehee..
The remainder of the batter was baked in a smaller tray.....
The missing cakes???
There is an explanation for this obviously...
When they were ready, each of us "tummy-ed" them within seconds....
Photographing were totally forgotten till I wanted to tummy a second one..
And I said..."Whoa.... !  Take a picture of me first!"
Despite some boo-ss at the background, I still wanna say.. Reanaclaire Can Bake!
hahahhaaa...


As for the recipe, I got it from this website ....

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
