A Need to Celebrate : Choconana Cake

Alright. I hope this gets to you my friends. Though I've been away too long, I pray that someone still remember that this little page exists. And to those visited even once in awhile, thank you so much! Taking a little time away from something constant could do you some good. It will refresh you somehow.

To commemorate that I am back online, how about we celebrate it with some cakes?

I made this delicate chocolate cake in early October when I craved some chocolate cake but wanted to veer from my go-to recipe of moist chocolate cake. This time, I'm gonna do a soft, fluffy cake. Something light in texture.

What's Inside That Counts : Neapolitan Birthday Cake



Salam folks! First and foremost, I want to shout out again to my sis; Happy birthday girl! Yes, that was her birthday cake. I kinda impressed myself with the outcome. To tell the truth, I was a little disappointed when it first came out of oven. I thought it will puff up more (it only came out at one inch high) since I wanted to do a layer cake for my sister. But, I'm really not good at dividing a cake.

Still. I. Want. Layers.

Tea Time : Malaysian Way


Seems like steamed food will be a frequent feature in this blog. Why, we had this hankering for traditional desserts more often nowadays! So brace yourself with another yummy delights... 


Old time apam beras has been one of many popular breakfast or tea time delicacies in Malaysia. It comes in variety of colors though the traditional colors usually in white (natural), pink or yellow. But my sisters were being creative with their coloring so we had that lovely baby blue, light green, soft pink and lavender color for the apams!

Must Have Second


The holiday was the only time family got together. And it is only fitting to have a special dish cooked during the days. In our house, one menu that always fits the bill is the Arab Rice a.k.a Nasi Maqlubah
It is a one pot meal or rice dish that serves with a side of refreshing salsa. 




Rice, meat and vegetables mix with savory herbs completing the comfort food description for our family. It's the fragrant smell of the dish that always remind us of home.

Pretty Hard to Mess With


Do you have any idea how good it is to eat a piece of freshly baked bread? 


I'm pretty sure you know this. But in case you don't, let me tell you. 

It's good. It's EASY and very satisfying. I know it is. Now my sister knew too. She got me to teach her late one evening. So we got down to business. Step by step, I let her do it all herself. The measuring and everything. Getting all the ingredients ready before you start is the key to success. Besides reducing the risk of forgetting to add an ingredient, it also helps you organised. 

This recipe should be fool proof. If I haven't fell in love with it already, I'll do so now. The sweetness is just right. The chewiness is just right. As corny as it may sound, this is THE BREAD. Yeah, okay. That statement is open for debate.
