Chocolate Rice Butter Cake

Chocolate Rice Butter Cake

Last few days ago, my Mother told me that she missed my cake.
Since I wanted to bake a cake with less chocolate, yesterday night embark my journey 
of baking to bake her this lovely Chocolate Rice Butter Cake.
Hope she will love it when I send to her this afternoon.

It was around 1.00 am when I have finished baking this cake.  

Thanks to my daughter for taking photo for me and my son to place the cake in
the container while I went to sleep.

Happy Baking.

Kung Pao Chicken, Kung Po Chicken, Gong Bao Chicken

Kung Pao Chicken / Kung Po Chicken /
Gong Bao Chicken
No joke, this dish is listed in Wikipedia.
Some named it Kung Pao Chicken, Kung Po Chicken, Gong Bao Chicken and etc.

Thanks to Haslina Abdul Majid, my new found friend sharing this recipe in FB.
When I saw the video, it seemed so easy to cook and I told myself that I need to 
challenge myself to cook this dish.
Our family has been ordering this dish whenever we eat outside but
I never tried it myself to cook it, maybe scared of failure (LOL). 
This dish is very flavourful but the end verdict by my family and I are as follows :-
"don't like the taste of the Szechuan Peppercorn (added too much?)".

Next try, will omit the Szezhuan Peppercorn.

Ingredients :-
 2 whole skinless leg Chicken (trim the fat, deboned and sliced into pieces).
1/2 handful of Spring Onion (clean and cut roughly).
10 pieces of Dried Chills (soak with water and deseed).
1 tbsp chopped Garlic.
1 tbsp chopped Ginger.
1/2 tbsp Szechuan Peppercorn.

  1. Marinade the chicken with 2 tsp dark soya sauce, 2 tsp shaoxing wine, 2 tsp corn starch and 1/4 tsp pepper for 30 minutes.
  2. Prepare the sauce for cooking and set aside - 1 tsp dark soya sauce, 1 tbsp soya sauce, 1 tbsp black vinegar, 1 tbsp sugar, 1/2 cube chicken stock.

  1. Mix 1 tbsp of the cooking oil into the marinated chicken and stir well.
  2. Heat up 1 tbsp of cooking oil and cook until 3/4 cooked and dish out.
  3. Add some cooking oil and heat it up.
  4. Add  garlic, ginger, szechuan peppercorn, dried chilli and fry until the aroma surfaced.
  5. Add the 3/4 cooked chicken and spring onion and stir fry until cooked.

Even though we don't like the taste of the Szechuan Peppercorn, we still finished this dish.
Instead of eating with rice, you can eat with steamed plain pau :)

Stir Fried Kangkung with Garlic and Chili

Stir Fried Kangkung with Garlic and Chili
Today I wanted to blog to take away my mind from the problem on my Dad.
My Dad's health is getting deteriorating day by day.
Seeing him in this situation aches me but I have to be strong in front of my family and
especially my dear old fragile Mother.  Well, end of my sobbing story.

I am posting Stir Fried Kangkung with Garlic and Chilli.
We call it Kangkung in Malaysia.  In other countries, it can be called Water Morning Glory,
Water Spinach, River Spinach or Water Convolvulus.
Whatever it is called, we just love to eat this vegetable!

During my marketing, I was looking at some vegetables and the vegetables seller told me
to buy Kangkung because it is very fresh.  I told her I was lazy to cook it.
She said very easy lah, just par boil the Kangkung then stir fry it with
garlic, belacan and chilli.  Since, she said so easy, so I thought alright lah....bought two heaps.
So cheap cheap cheap, two heaps at RM2.40 only.

For this dish, I did not add belacan because I just wanted a  plain stir fry dish.

  1. Wash and cut off the stems and par boil the vegetables.
  2. Heat up 2 tbsp of cooking oil and stir fry the garlic and chilli.
  3. Add the vegetables and stir fry for 1 minute and sprinkle some salt to taste.  If it is dry, please add some hot water.
  4. Dish out.

Even without the belacan, this dish still delicious.

Cheesy Corn Dog

Cheesy Corn Dog
 Made this for tea time and my family loves it.
Crispy outside and cheesy inside.
A Corn Dog is a sausage coated in a thick layer of cornmeal batter on a stick.
Since I don't have cornmeal, I used flour to substitute.
Since Christmas and New Year will coming in a few more days, why not make it for
Christmas or New Year Party.
Sure your family, relatives and friends will love it.

6 Hot Dogs (Sausages)
8 slices of Cheese
8 Wooden Skewers (no need to soak with water)
1 cup Flour
1 tsp Salt (omit if your hot dogs and cheese are salted)
1 tsp Pepper
1/2 tbsp Baking Powder
3/4 cup Milk
1 Egg
Oil (for frying)

  1. Roll the cheese slice around the hot dog and push a wooden skewer inside.
  2. Place the cheese wrapped hot dogs seam side down.
  3. Freeze for 20 minutes.

  1. Mix the flour, salt, pepper, baking powder until well combined.
  2. Beat the egg with milk and pour into the dry ingredients.
  3. Mix well.
  4. Set aside.
  5. Pour some of the batter into a tall glass (it is easier to dip the hot dog).

  1. Take out the frozen hot dogs.  Dip it fully into the batter, lifting it out and let excess batter drip off.
  2. Carefully place the battered hot dog into the hot oil, turning it once in a while to fry evenly.
  3. Remove when golden brown and drain the oil with paper towel.

Serve with honey mustard or ketchup.
Crispy and cheesy, Yummy.
Yesterday my daughter told me to make this for today....I replied "Again?".
Well, not today dearie because mummy's schedule a bit tight.
