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 think of it, i think I know why...
Overbaked for these mini ones.... 
Is it possible? 
Whereas this big one... it was not as hard as the mini ones... 
Not a good sight... but still edible when it was still warm.... 
The texture looks alright, I ate two pieces...
But the next day, they were hard and dry....
Nevertheless they were all eaten up... no wastage...
My ever faithful furry member ate them all!

  1. The mini cakes look good though. Maybe they were overbaked. Sometimes it is like that, follow all the steps but did not jadi.

  5. It looks good. Maybe it is meant to be eaten the same day, not to be kept to be eaten later. Well, at least you have been making lots of lovely cakes, I have been wanting to bake a simple plain butter cake and I have not done so. Scared it would be disastrous!!!

  7. Yes, they look good. Too bad they were so disappointing. I laughed at your comment about your furry friend eating it all up.

  11. I am 100% sure that the temperature of your oven does not tally with the knob that you set. I even know some expert chefs in big hotels who need to use a separate thermometer to check the inside heat of their ovens.

    This CNY recently, I tried to bake my famous chocolate chips cookies again which I learnt while in US. My Italian housemate taught me so. I failed 2 rounds of baking and threw them away as I have no furry friend to help me. LOL

    The 3rd round was a success after readjusting the heat and recipe just to suit our local climate. It sounds strange but necessary. I used to bake during Winters in US, so the cold kitchen room produced different results compared to the warm kitchen in Malaysia. Good luck Claire.

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....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
