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!

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

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

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...
