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!

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
