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!

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

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....

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...
