2018 Highlights and Recap

If you have been following my blog for a while, you would notice I have been inactive for most of 2018.  I see it as a good thing - it means I've got too many things to do - and if you also follow my IG, you would easily see why...  17 trips, 10 countries, countless cities in a mere 52 weeks!

Nyonya Kuih Lapis Sagu

When I was making this recipe, I keep thinking to myself, these people must have a ton of time in their hands... The recipe is not difficult at all, it just took a lot of patience and patience is not one of my virtues... so it may be a long while before I will make this recipe again.  (To be honest, I didn't even want to make this to begin with but I had leftover fresh pandan extract.)  Next time you complain kuih is expensive, try making your own.

How to Make Pandan Leaf Extract

Boxed coconut milk was on sale at my local supermarket the other day so I went to the market and bought some fresh pandan leaves to make cake.  The store owner asked what I am going to make with the leaves and I told him - Pandan Chiffon Cakes!  He gave me a look of disbelief.  Maybe I should treat him a slice.  LOL!

Chiffon Cakes

Lately, I have been addicted to baking chiffon cakes.  My family has been very cooperative by eating the entire 9 inch cake per day for almost a week consecutively.  So far, I have tried 5 different flavors - matcha, earl grey, pandan, mocha, orange.  The ingredients are very simple - just eggs, oil, cake flour, and water/milk/juice/etc.  The flavor combination is almost endless.  Chiffon cakes very, very, versatile indeed!  I just wonder how can I make this cake in a vegan version since this recipe relies so much on eggs!

Pandan Chiffon Cake

I got my recipe from Just One Cookbook.  Her chiffon cake recipes are very easy to follow and the cake comes out moist but not too sweet.  I also loved the fact that she has measurements for 3 difference chiffon cake pan sizes.  I got my 9 inch chiffon cake pan from IKEA years ago and mostly used it to bake cheesecake.  Her 20 cm measurement was actually perfect for my pan.

2017 Highlights and Recap

What can I say?  2017 has been hectic (in a good way).  Traveled to places beyond expectation for sure.  Keeping the post short for the sake of both of us.  Just some highlights.  For more photos, you can check out my Google Album or follow me on my Instagram. :)
