Simple Steps To Lemon Cake With Pecans

SWEET TEMPTATION filled my mind again yesterday after my friend posted up her Steamed Lemon Cake in Facebook... that set my baking process on....

Checked my fridge, I have 2 big lemons but a bit short of butter.  I weighed the butter, it was only 145gm.  The recipe required 175gm of butter, flour and sugar.  How leh?  No worries, I ended up tweaking the recipe to accommodate the shortage of butter by 30gm.

I used 150gm of self raising flour instead of 175gm... sugar, I slashed it to 75gm, I really cannot eat too sweet... and the rest of the ingredients are : 3 eggs, one lemon plus one tablespoon of lemon zest, one teaspoon of baking soda... and that was it.
Cream the butter and the brown sugar.... 

Add in an egg at one time... 
I added in some pecans for decoration.... 
Into the oven 180 degree celsius for 45 minutes.... 
oopppsss... cracked again?
Maybe I should lower the heat to 160 degrees next time...
or cover it with an aluminium foil on top.... 
Taste: Not to bad and not too great either!
Need to do:  Add in more lemon juice and zest... 
Verdict: For sweet toothers, this would not be sweet enough.... 
The whole cake was shared out by 4 of us....
Even my furry member has a piece, she just gulped it down in one second..
LOL...

  1. I would love to try that! I wish the ladies in the house were as active in the kitchen as you. I bought a box of self-raising flour and it is still sitting there on the counter in the kitchen. Somehow they do not seem to get the hint!

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
