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!

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... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

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
