kuih raya

Ya..mari kita cerita kuih raya. Banyak sudah kuih kamu? Sedap2 ? Dimana kamu beli? Atau buat sendiri?

So I started late this time. Penat eh tiada orang gaji ni. I haven't told you I don't have a full time maid these days, have I? Since March. And I was completely maid-less for 3 months before I got this part time who comes in 3x a week.

Jadi plan nya mau main beli saja ini tahun. Tapi bila aku jalan2 di Wisma MUIS beli songkok anak itu ini, nda juga aku terbeli. My MIL made some of her usual cookies when she joined us here 2nd week puasa. Dia punya ritual tahunan - makmur, agar2 gula & ulat bulu. So that started me going too. Ada kawan.

I managed 4.

London Almond, chip cookies, pistachio & butterfly cornflakes. Not all success story. Yang chip cookies tu baru punya resipi dari Keluarga Sep'10. Terlampau manis. Gila menala-nala. Mau dikurangkan separuh sukatannya.
Tapi aku mau cerita pasal pistachio cookies ni. Di ambil dari Buku resipi tahun 2002 punya. Lagi reliable. Jadi, dan sedap. Tapi rumitnya kerja....siapa juga suruh aku mencuba. My MIL geleng kepala ja tengok aku terkuliat2 membuat.
Mula2 bancuh adunan semua. Lepas tu terap doh pakai piping beg bikin bentuk siput/kerang gitu pakai star nozzle (sakit jari, lain kali bagus pakai alat penekan yang ada template nya di hujung tu)
Sudah siap di bakar, dikatup dua keping, dicelup dalam coklat cair. Lepas tu salut sama serbuk pistachio. Biarkan kering di dulang baru boleh simpan.

Siputnya pun nda seragam. Ada mama siput, ada anak..hahaha..peduli la.
Aku rasa sudah2 la cookies. Karang aku mau try bikin kek lagi. Harap2 success story.
Jadi kalau aku nda muncul2 lepas tu mengkali kecundang la tu. Hik.
Later !

Hello Fabmom, wow! Saya suka your kueh raya semua ni.
I can see you ada Black Belt in cake making.
Love your presentation too.....Sheraton or Hilton Hotels pun kala, ha ha.

Ha ha, I like that name, 'ulat bulu'....in English, 'hairy caterpillar'?

Fabmom, I would like to give you a special recipe....this one sure make siapa makan get all shook up. Ha ha.

It is Elvis Presley's favourite cake, one time his mother Gladys used to bake for him,....
It's a pound cake, "I'm all shook up" cake.

Ini recipe dia....

ELVIS PRESLEY'S POUND CAKE

3 cups granulated sugar
1/2 pound butter, softened
7 eggs, at room temperature
3 cups cake flour, sifted twice, divided
1 cup whipping cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Butter and flour a 10-inch tube pan.

Thoroughly cream together sugar and butter.
Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in half the flour, then the whipping cream , then the other half of the flour.

Add vanilla extract. Pour batter into prepared pan. Set in a COLD oven and turn heat to 350 degrees F.

Bake 60 to 70 minutes, until a sharp knife inserted in cake comes out clean.

Cool in pan 5 minutes. Remove from pan and cool thoroughly.
Then invite Uncle Lee come for coffee. Lee.

ps, I have another very interesting cake, I call it the chari pasal cake. It's called, "I'm all yours" cake.

Just imagine you baking it and hubby enquires what you baking and you tell him, "I'm all yours..."?
Ha ha, itu la chari pasal.
Let me know if you interested this chari pasal cake.
Selamat berpuasa, and keep a song in your heart, Lee.
