2 1/2 cups lotus biscuits + graham cracker crumbs 
2 tbs of sugar
5 tablespoons  butter, melted

For the Creamy Cheesecake:

Cinnamon Apple Cake

The girls, dah besar ni, susah betul la nak paksa makan fruits. They only like tembikai. Buah apple yg aku beli hari tu, sampai 2 weeks tak bersentuh. So aku decided to bake it. Of course, the first thing that came to mind was apple pie. Tapi malas nya nak buat the pastry. 

Lepas berminit2 cari recipe, I decided on this apple cake recipe. It turned out really good. I love it! 

INGREDIENTS

1  1/2 cups plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 cup red apple, peeled and roughly chopped
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup Greek yogurt

Cinnamon topping (too lazy to make this)
50 grams (1/4 cup) caster sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted

Sugar glaze (I omitted this)
30 grams (1/4 cup) icing or powdered sugar
1–2 tablespoons milk

INSTRUCTIONS
Preheat oven to 180 C (350 F) standard / 160 C (320 F) fan-forced. Grease and line an 8 or 9 inch round cake tin with baking or parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, add flour, baking powder, baking soda and sugar. Add chopped apple and stir briefly to combine.

In a separate bowl, add eggs, vanilla, oil and yoghurt. Whisk briefly just to break up the egg yolks.

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and gently mix with a wooden spoon until combined – but be careful not to over mix. Spoon batter into prepared tin.

To make cinnamon topping, combine cinnamon, sugar and butter. Mix together until lumpy and wet. Sprinkle over cake batter.

Bake cake for approximately 30-35 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Transfer cake to a wire rack to cool completely.

To make the glaze, mix together sugar and 1 tablespoon of milk. Stir until smooth. If the glaze is too thick, add an extra tablespoon of milk. Drizzle glaze all over the cake.

Nona Manis

The beauty of RMO is that, people starts to cook at home. Tu termasuklah aku. Not that I don't cook at home, but aku go beyond what I normally cook. Kuih melayu is never my forte. Selalu kalau nak makan kuih, pegi je beli kat gerai kuih kat melawati. But during RMO, banyak yang tutup. Maka, terpaksa lah aku merajinkan diri untuk buat kuih, demi mok.

Serunding Daging RMO

Che hab , hubby's  aunt yg pandai masak is in KL, stuck with us. RMO is in Phase 3 now. She had to stay with us during RMO sebab tak sempat nak balik Terengganu. She's  here for her grandson surgery. The grandson is suffering from a rare cancer, called germinoma. In his case, the cancer us agressive.  He had to go through 3 major surgery within 2 weeks and he's  only 15. 🤧🤧

Anyway, since ramadhan  is coming, che hab decided to teach me how to make my own serunding  daging. Huhuhu... it's  not easy. Tapi, rasa dia, masya Allah,  sedap sangat.

Serunding daging

Ingredients 
3kg daging - rebus sampai empuk, shred
1 1/2 kg bawang besar merah
20 ulas bawang putih
3 inci halia
10-15sudu besar cili giling (from 200gram cili kering yg direbus dan blended)
1 1/2 santan pekat (ordered from Anyys Adizi, sedap sangat santan)
Garam
Gula

Blend bawang besar, bawang putih dan halia. Campak dalam santan, dengan cili giling dan shredded beef. Masak sehingga kering. About 6-7 hours. 

Memang such a hassle to masak, tapi worth it! Sedap giler compared to beli kat kedai. Tapi boleh nangis nak buat serunding ni.

Apple Coffee Cake

An accidental cake.  That's  what this cake is.  Kebetulan kat rumah banyak sangat apple.  Takde orang makan.  Bila dah lama terbiar,  soggy,  tak crunchy,  lagi la semua orang takmau makan.  Aku had no choice but to google  apple cake recipe.  Penatnya nak browse recipe satu2.  This time,  tawakkal je la. Aku picked one recipe yg aku rasa sesuai dengan jiwa aku. Verdict,  cake ni memang sedap giler!  Rasa mcm ada custard padahal takde custard pun.  

Anyway, today result UPU keluar.  I am so happy that iman dapat placement kat tempat yg dia memang nak.  Alhamdulillah. 

French Apple Coffee Cake
Adapted from onceuponachef

INGREDIENTS
2 cup self raising flour
250gram of  salted butter
1 cup granulated sugar
4 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons orange juice/pineapple juice
4 baking apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1/2-inch cubes (Honeycrisp, Fuji or Granny Smith)

Crumbs
125gram salted  butter, at room temperature
1 ½ Tbsp Honey
1 Cup Packed Light Brown Sugar
¼ tsp Vanilla Paste or Pure Vanilla Extract
1 cup of flour (add additional of 1/4 of flour if it's the mixture is too wet) 


INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9-inch springform or regular cake pan with butter or nonstick cooking spray. If using a regular cake pan, line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper and grease again.


Cream the butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well and scraping down the sides of the bowl after each addition. Beat in the vanilla and juice. Don't worry if the batter looks grainy at this point; that's okay. Add the flour mixture and mix on low speed until just combined. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the chopped apples.

For the crumbs,  cream butter,  sugar and honey until light and fluffly,  add vanilla.  Add flour and rub with fingers until it resembles crumbs.  
 
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and even the top. Sprinkle evenly with the crumbs. 


Bake for about 40 minutes, or until the cake is golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool on a rack.  


Freezer Friendly Instructions: The cake can be frozen for up to 3 months. After it is completely cooled, cover it tightly with aluminum foil or freezer wrap. Thaw overnight on the countertop before serving.

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

This is a classic beauty.  Dah macam2 version of this cake yg ada on google.  So it's  just a matter of choosing the right one the suits you.  Esok ada gathering kat rumah K. Rita, my ssp senior,  who will be leaving for Haji  soon with her husband.  Our makan2 group decided to meet up,  potluck party kat rumah k. Rita.  Aku dah janji nak bawak cake esok.  

The truth is,  aku macam malas nak google  recipes.  Rasa mcm nak bake one of the cakes yg aku dah baked before, foolproof,  takyah nak adjust sana sini dah.  Tapi kindda boring jugak asyik makan cake sama je.  I baked this cake in a 9" round pan and in a smaller rectangular pan utk aku rasa.  Ye la,  takan nak bawak cake tak sedap kat gathering kan. Hahaha..  Anyway,  Alhamdulillah,  the cake turned up well.  Rasa sedap!!  Aku suka.  Here's  the recipe.  

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
Ingredients

Pan Schmear
125gram salted  butter, at room temperature
1 ½ Tbsp Honey
1 Cup Packed Light Brown Sugar
¼ tsp Vanilla Paste or Pure Vanilla Extract
Sea Salt

1 Gold (Extra-Sweet) Pineapple (aku guna sliced pineapple  in a can) 

Cake
2 2/3 Cups Self raising flour
250 gram of salted Butter, at room temperature
1 cup Granulated Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Paste or Pure Vanilla Extract
4 Large Eggs
50ml of pineapple juice (from the can) 
50ml of milk 

Method

Preheat the oven to 180 degree celcius.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle, combine the butter, honey, rum, brown sugar, and vanilla and beat until smooth and well blended. Spread 2/3 cup of the schmear over the bottom of a 9-inch silicone cake pan. Sprinkle lightly with salt.  (The remaining schmear can be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks or frozen for up to 1 month; bring to room temperature before using.)

Cut the pineapple into quarters.  Beginning at the perimeter of the pan, make an overlapping ring of pineapple slices with the curved side facing out. Make a second ring inside the first one, overlapping the slices in the opposite direction, working toward the center of the pan.

Sift the flour; set aside.

Put the butter and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer and mix on low speed to combine, then beat on medium speed for about 3 minutes, until light and creamy, stopping to scrape down the sides as necessary. Mix in the vanilla. Add the eggs one at a time, beating until the first one is incorporated before adding the second and scraping down the sides as necessary. Beat in the milk. Add the flour mixture in 3 batches, beating until combined.

Pour the batter into the pan and spread over the pineapple. Bake for 15 minutes. Rotate the pan for even browning and bake for another 20 to 25 minutes, until a cake tester or wooden skewer inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool the cake in the pan on a cooling rack for 20 to 40 minutes.

Run a knife around the edges of the cake, invert onto a serving platter, and serve warm. (Leftover can be stored at room temperature for up to 2 days.)

Serves 8
