.:devil's choc cake:.

peace be upon u & hello

i know...i know. im late in posting this entry. sorry, cant help it. down with flu+cough+slight fever. tu yang lembap sikit. but better late than never right? after all i already promise. so once i promise, inshaAllah, i surely will fulfill.

i've tried few recipes for devil's choc cake. among all, this i love the most. sorry couldnt remember where did i got this recipe. and of course, i did omit here & there base on my own liking (kurang manis la tu). so, have a try (tak susah mana pun). good luck!

*2 cups pastry flour (i use red roses flour & super fine)
*3/4 cup cocoa powder (i use van houten)
*1 & 1/2  tsp soda bicarbonate
*1/2 tsp salt
1 cup unsalted pure creamy butter (i use tatura)
2 cups castor sugar (i use 1&3/4 cups)
4 eggs (grade A, make sure u guys basuh bersih-bersih ya)
1/2 cup + 2oz buttermilk
1/2 cup + 2oz brewed coffee (i use gold blend nescafe)
1 tsp vanilla essence

1. sift all * ingredients & mix them well. then put aside
2. cream butter & castor sugar till light & fluffy
3. add eggs one at a time
4. mix the buttermilk with vanilla essence and coffee
5. add in dry ingredients * into butter+sugar. alternate with liquid mixture (buttermilk+vanilla essence+coffee). make it 3:2 ratio and mix well
6. bake at 180degree for about 45mins or until a skewer/toothpick inserted in the center of the cakes comes out clean
7. let the cakes cool for few mins in the pan. then take it out and place on wire rack

for cream cheese as the filling, i dont have any specific recipe. but normally cream cheese of mine as below

250gm cream cheese
60gm pure cream butter
100gm icing sugar (or maybe less as i dont like too sweet. so its up to u guys)
1. cream the cream cheese & butter till fluffy but dont over beat
2. add in icing sugar slowly and mix well

place the first layer. then spread the cream cheese filling (suka banyak, letak tebal-tebal). then spread choc ganache on top of the cream cheese filling. then put the second layer (if u have more than 2 layers, repeat the whole process). for final, u can either pour the runny choc ganache or frost the cake with 'hard' choc ganache or both!

till then, happy baking!!

.:sardine roll bun:.

peace be upon u & hello

told u i love bread very much! and like i've mentioned in my previous entry, yesterday i bake 2 types of bread. recipe i follow exactly from Che Mat Gebu. U can view his entry at here. but i omit the tuna filling. i use sardine =) well, like what CMG mentioned in his blog, u need to be creative in creating foods =) seriously this bread memang sedap! even until the next morning, the texture still soft. but i guess i need to practice a lot if i want the outcome 'pretty' like CMG.btw, thanks mat for sharing this nice recipe!

250 gram tepung roti
50 gram gula kastor
1/2 camca teh garam halus
10 g susu tepung
30 g telur (pecahkan 1 biji, kacau sedikit dan timbang)
6 gram instant yeast
20 gram mentega
125 ml air suam (kalau guna Breadmaker guna air biasa)

1 camca besar mentega, dicairkan
1 tin tuna, ditoskan biar kering, lecek hancur
2 1/2 camca besar Mayonnaise
1 biji bawang besar, dadu kecil
1 pokok daun bawang (atau daun kuchai), hiris halus, asingkan sedikit untuk hiasan
1 biji limau kasturi, perah jusnya (optional)
1/2 camca teh lada hitam yang baru dikisar, asingkan sedikit untuk hiasan

  1. UNTUK DOH :- Larutkan yis dalam air suam, biar berbuih. Satukan semua bahan lain kecuali mentega, masukkan bancuhan yis dan gaul rata hingga menjadi doh. Tambah mentega dan terus menguli hingga mendapat doh yang kenyal dan anjal (kurang lebih 20 minit). Bulat2kan doh, letak dalam bekas dan balut dengan plastik bersih, biarkan 45 minit hingga naik. KAEDAH LAIN :- Satukan semua bahan2 untuk doh dalam breadmaker, pilih setting untuk "DOH" dan tekan "ON", tunggu hingga siap (selalunya BM mengambil masa 30 minit menguli dan 1 jam memerap, ikut jenis BM masing2).
  2. UNTUK ROLL TUNA SANDWICH :- Satukan semua bahan untuk inti tuna kecuali mentega, kacau rata. Ketepikan. Keluarkan doh, tumbuk untuk membuang udara, tabur sedikit tepung pada meja kerja, dan canai menjadi 4 persegi. Sapu permukaan doh tadi dengan mentega cair rata2. Tuang inti tuna dan ratakan. Tinggalkan sedikit ruang di hujung doh. Gulung seperti swissroll dan ketatkan. Kemas kan bahagian kiri dan kanan gulungan doh dan kerat kepada 10 bahagian sama besar.
  3. Susun dalam paper cup jenis bersiaz 4 inci. Tekan sedikit biar rata. Buat hingga siap. Perap 45 minit hingga kembang. Sapu telur (baki dari 30 g tadi), tabut baki hirisan daun bawang (mat guna daun kuchai) dan lada hitam. Bakar dalam oven yang telah dipanaskan pada suhu 190C selama 25 minit atau hingga perang keemasan. Sejukkan atas jaringan sepenuhnya.

1 teaspoon bread improver (optional)*i use this
1 teaspoon bread softener (optional)* i use this
4 teaspoons instant dry yeast

250ml water

Method :

1. Mix well all ingredients in (A)
2. Add (B) into (A) and knead till smooth.
3. Add (C) and continue kneading till smooth and shiny and dough does not stick to your hand.
4. Leave to prove for 30 - 40 minutes.
5. Punch down the dough to let the air out.
6. Divide the dough according to the weight you wish. Make into balls and leave to rest for 10 minutes.
7. Shape accordingly.
8. Leave to prove for 40 minutes - 1 hour.
9. Bake till golden brown.and right after keluar dari oven, brush with some butter on top ot the bread to make it shine =D (but i didnt do this sebab...err malas perhaps)
