A Fruitful Morning

It has been a fruitful morning for me today. I started at about 10.45 am in the kitchen and managed to get four things done by the time it was 2.30 pm.

First I made a Baked Tapioca Kueh.



Then I did a quick fried rice for my children for lunch.



Followed by a lemon tart. This was the recipe that I had always wanted to try but never really had the chance to. Finally I was able to do it today because I was trying to clear the 3 lemons in the fridge before it turned bad.




The last item I did was the pandan chiffon cake. To clear the remainder of the coconut milk from making the baked tapioca kueh.


Very happy that I managed so many things in just under 4 hours.

Thanks everyone, it is actually easy to manage. While one thing is baking in the oven you can prepare the rest and get all the ingredients ready and it sure makes the rest of the work much faster and easier.

Hi Lixin, I will share the lemon tart recipe but will need a few more days to get it up here.

Hi, I was just wondering if you take orders? If you do, I have this friend who is 21 years old this saturday. I'm also wondering how much is the est. cost to make 25 reg cupcakes with MMF deco. Thanks!

Trish said...

You're incredible!!!

I thought the Pandan Chiffon was beautiful! How did you manage to get the top so smooth without any cracks? :)

Thanks for sharing and Happy New Year!

Hi Anonoymus, I won't be able to do it this time because my dad is hospitalised and I am totally occupied with this.

Hi Trish, I left it to bake in my microwave cum conventional oven, sitting on the rotating plate in the oven. The rotating movement of the cake ensures an even baking of the whole cake.

hi, can you tell me if the microwave cum convention oven is good for baking cakes? no problem like those of conventional oven where some parts are hotter than others? does cakes turn out dryer e.g. will swissroll crack during the rolling process if using microwave cum convention oven? and do we still follow the recipes temperature or do we have to adjust them e.g. fan forced oven usually is 10 deg cel lower than normal baking mode. sorry that i asked so much because i am having headache with my fan forced only conventional oven and is now thinking of getting a replacement.

Hi leelee, your chiffon cake looks so nice and perfect from the top. Mine came out cracked, I dunno why..
My baby belling oven seems hotter than the other brands, so i have to adjust the temperature myself. may i know what kind of oven you use?

Thanks very very much for sharing your blog, you are generous and great! each time I don't know what to cook or bake, i visit your blog. I wish I stay beside you.. LOL

Also , you have a buttercake recipe you ve posted sometime ago, do i follow the instructions posted there to mix everything together or must I get it from you thru email?

have a blessed day!


Hugbear said...

I am using a microwave cum conventional oven. Everyone's oven is unique so you will have to know your own oven, the hot spot, the temp etc. Adjust oven temp accordingly. If you find that your oven is hotter on one side then the other, then you can just rotate the baking pan manually half way during baking.

Hugbear said...

Anonymous you can follow the buttercake recipe I have posted here.
