Easy Steps To Banana Walnut Cake For Two

BAKING MODE IS ON TODAY....

Before I changed my mind, I quickly took out my butter to thaw in room temperature.  I have been contemplating for the last few days whether to do or not to do, the mood must be there, right?  LOL.. My bananas have been sitting in my kitchen for the last couple of days, not totally black yet, still half half and if I don't do the baking today, they will end up in the dustbin tomorrow.  More or less, it is because of the over-riped bananas that I have to bake just now....

Firstly, the ingredients..... 
110gm butter
65gm sugar (I used only 50gm brown sugar)
2 eggs
100gm self raising floor
30gm crushed walnuts (another few to decorate on top)

Cream butter and sugar....
Then add in one egg at a time....
Lastly, add in the mashed banana, 
followed by flour and the crushed walnuts...
And the rest is for decoration on top... 
Into the oven it goes at 180 celsius... for 40 minutes...
Tested with the skewer when it was done.... 
And it turned out like this...
Not sure why cracked...
Can anyone tell me?
Is it because I did not "shake" the cake properly before it went in the oven?
I was so worried that it was dried...
Quickly cut and check.....
Hey, it is SOFT!!!
No dryness at all...
Just and moist....
In fact very nice!
Crusty a bit on top and soft inside!
Other than the "earthquake cracks"... 
I am happy with the outcome of this mini sized cake...
OK, next time I will do a double portion...
Minus the cracks if someone were to tell me why!
LOL....

  6. I always loved walnuts and would buy them in China & Korea. I would munch them directly into my mouth like kachang. To bake them with your banana cake is a marvelous idea! I like.

    The cracks on the cake makes it look sexy!!

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

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... 

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
