Banana Yoghurt Cake

Rumah aku dan pisang dah synonym. Jarang sangat kat rumah aku takde pisang.  Most of the time  memang bersikat sikat pisang atas meje.  No,  we are not species monyet yang menjadikan pisang as makan ruji,  but somehow,  hubby mesti nak pisang.  Sudahnya bila pegi pasar tani on saturday,  aku akan borong banyak pisang.  Sometimes bila dah middle of the week,  pisang dah jadi over ripe sebab tak sempat nak makan.  Maka,  terpaksa la aku buat kek pisang.

This cake is actually an inspired recipe of greek yoghurt banana cake.  Tak ku sangka,  kek ni sangat sedap.  Cuma bila bake guna bundt pan,  melekat sikit kat dalam pan tu.  Maybe sebab the batter is a bit runny.  Kalau guna bundt pan,  kena make sure guna recipes with  thick batter.  Then baru la kek keluar dari pan cantik!

Blueberry Gooey Butter Cake

Ops! Another blueberry cake. Aku rajin nak bake blueberry cake sebab tadi dapat beli blueberry kat Hero for RM6.99 using their monthly coupon. Tapi boleh guna 1 coupon je per card. Ceh! Kupik betul. Aku wish msia mcm kat US. Some people buy their monthly groceries in bulk using coupons coz they can buy as many as they want as long as they have the relevant coupon.

Anyway, this recipe is based on Paula Deen recipe. As usual, I need to make alteration to the original recipe sebab Paula Deen suka la buat kek yg manis. Aku suka her recipes sebab it's full prove if you know how to tweak the sweetness.

Blueberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

My girls love this cake. It's mama's special cake. Oleh kerana today aku nak keluar berjimba with some girlfriends, maka, semalam, terpaksa la aku merajinkan diri untuk on oven.

The truth is, sepanjang Ramadan, aku langsung tak bake any cake, too tired, too busy. Dah la darah ku rendah yg amat, at 95/52. Sigh... Most of the time during Ramadan, aku kena rest. Memang boleh kurus la time Ramadan, dah ler makan tak lalu. Tapi masa Ramadan je kurus. Lepas je Ramadan, terus naik balik. Huhuhu... sedih tahap gaban.

Ok la, ni recipe blueberry cheese cake tu ye. Selamat mencuba!

Puding Roti Jagung Mutiara

It's  quite a challenge bila adik aku,  Mas,  mintak tolong masakkan dish jagung.  Since she's now selling jagung mutiara from Cameron Highland,  every 2 weeks,  rumah aku akan penuh dengan jagung yg sangat manis. 

Penat google recipe,  aku ternampak recipe puding roti jagung kat blog kak Ct Delima.  From that recipe,  aku olah jadi this recipe puding roti jagung mutiara.  Thank you kak CT kerana memberi aku ilham. 

Puding Roti Jagung Mutiara

Bahan2
3 cawan jagung yang telah lerai dari the cob (guna pisau untuk hiris isi jagung keluar dari batang)

10 keping roti ( di sapu butter on one side,  dan dipotong kecil)

Bahan blend
2 keping roti
250ml santan
500ml susu cair
1 cawan gula
1 sudu teh garam halus
4 biji telur
1 cawan tepung gandum

Cara2
1. Panaskan oven pada suhu 180 darjah celcius.

2. Gris bekas berukuran 9x9, susunkan roti selapis,  tuang bahan blend,  tabur 1/3 jagung.  Ulang sehingga habis.  Biarkan adunan puding selama 30 minit sebelum dibakar di dalam oven.

3. Bakar selama 40-50 minit.  Jika bahagian atas sedikit hangus,  tutup dengan aluminium foil sehingga puding betul2  masak.  Sejukkan sebelum dipotong.

Note

4. Kalau nak buat the puding jadi 2 lapisan berlainan warna,  bahagikan bahan blend kepada 2 bahagian.  Warna satu bahagian menjadi hijau.  Susun 1/2 roti,  tuang bahagian hijau, tabur jagung,  biarkan adunan di luar selama 30 minit,  kemudian bakar selama 20 minit.  Kemudian Ulang proses diatas dengan adunan yang berwarna putih pulak. 

PS : puding ni sangat sedap..  Sekian terima kasih..  Hehe

Btw,  aku bakar guna magic pan yg besar.  Just gris the pan,  susun roti,  tuang adunan batter,  jagung,  then ulang,  pastu bakar.  Api kena sangat kecik.  It will take about 25-30 mins utk masak
