Boys and girls, be good and stay at home tonight yah.
Because it's the day of the year again.
Previous year post here.
I had no idea what got into me in baking. BAKING for God's sake! I don't even like to eat cake leh.
Last few week, I walked to Seria public library to return "Shopaholic and Sister". Having no idea what to borrow next, I randomly picked a Photoshop tutorial book and a cook book!
Cook book! In Baking?!
Maybe I got attracted by the pictures in it and got me hypnotized that I can make this as well. After all, the title for the book is "Easy Baking". I guessed measuring, whisking, beating and putting the tray into the oven wouldn't be that difficult.
Bobby came over last Saturday and I decided to bake him a cake, because he had been bugging me to cook him something for a looooooooooooooooooooong time.
Nonnie's tip - Never cook for your boyfriend too much. Else it won't be "precious" anymore. Feed him once in awhile and keep him hungry most of the time. LOL. Just kidding lah..
So, I chose this.
This wasn't my first choice. Bobby wanted Bread Pudding and when we went to Supa Save to shop for ingredients, man..... the apple pie fillings and whipping cream are bloody expensive. Expensive as in I'm only going to use 1/4 of it and waste the rest since I doubt I'll be cooking the same thing for the second time.
S.L. and Theen who went there together with us were looking at the other page, Cotton Cheese Cake. But because one of them prefer to sleep and the other one got a report to rush, so they give up baking it. And I took their choice, which is cheaper and easier.

Based on the recipe above, you can imagine how fattening it is right? Nevermind, give them to your friends so that you make them fat also. =p
Bobby helped to separate the eggs while I got the rest of the ingredients measured and ready in bowls. I was like the commander and he's my soldier. But it was fun, I mean two person walking around in the kitchen, working hard together to get something done.
Theen was supposed to come over to help (claimed that she want to go home and get changed first) but she thought Mr. Zhou (Zhou-Gong)'s place was nicer to visit. (Meaning she took a nap instead of coming over as promised)
After almost 1hour of getting everything done, it's time to put it into the oven.
My house tee was too ugly to show.
You imagine, a big white 12 years old tee with Badtz Maru print all over.
After 1hour plus...
(According to the recipe, we're suppose to bake it for 50mins.. But we realized it wasn't enough to get the top into golden brown colour.)
Erm.. the hole was being poked to see if the inside cooked already.
Cut a big slice for my yiyi next door (because she lent me her mixing machine and corn flour), one big slice for my parent, and the rest - 1/3 for my lami-kakis.
(And a separate smaller size one for Bobby's family- to earn bonus impression point for my Good daugther-in-law quota check-list)
I know it looked like a normal sponge cake but I tell you, once you popped into your mouth - the sweetness, the soft and fluffy texture feels like magic in your mouth.
(Like how Remy tasted the combination of strawberry and cheese together)
Even random pedestrians A, B and C on the street also say nice ler..
Okay lor... so you can recognized their backs and tell that they're my friends. But hey, they're not lying about how good it tasted okay!
Theen sliced them up nicely and served it on a plate.
How often can you find a guy who can bake you tell me? Somemore it's this traditional Chinese Fak-Kueh? (which Theen and I don't eat. Theen told him to make something that we'll eat next time. Only Bobby gave him some face and eat. LOL)
Nothing beats a Sunday with the bestest friends around from morning till afternoon follow by a game of lami!
It was boyfriend's second day of Lami. Hehe, now we have an extra spare kaki!
No, we don't gamble. No cash involved. Pure entertainment and time-wasting only.
