CMCO Bakes - Carrot Walnut Cake

NOW CARROT....  

Banana marble cake has bowed away and here comes Carrot Cake!  By end of this month, I dare not imagine how we all look like if the baking continues every other day or so!  This is all because of Covid-19, being locked up and spending time learning baking and eating only........................

I told them to cut down on sugar, at least one third if not half... from the original recipe.  And I try to minimize my intake from two pieces to one each day... LOL... One thing good about the recipe, the portion is not big, only a six inches in diameter and for the four of us plus my neighbour, the cakes are normally finished within two days max.  

After the marble cake, she proceeded to try her hands on carrot with walnuts.  Though the walnuts were a bit chunky, I don't mind, they really blend well with the carrot.  Oh, by the way, I did not go and see how she did it, I only saw the end product.  Anyway, her recipes are now from Sonia, her recipes are great, suitable for us when it comes to sugar and the cake size.
The fragrance led me to the kitchen.... 
Then she did some lemon frosting when the cake is cooled...
Into the fridge it went... to be kept till dinner....
Half was nearly gone by dinner time.... 
Texture all good.... soft and moist.... 
Yummy in our tummies!

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

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...
