kuih lapis
Kuih Lapis has got to rank probably one of my favourite cakes. Also known as Layered Cake, Kuih Lapis is said to have originated from Indonesia and it is quite a labourious cake to bake as it involves baking the cake layer by layer. The layer is usually paper thin and it can be quite fun peeling it off layer by layer to eat them. This cake is also quite sweet and it is best sliced thinly across the layers and consumed in small portions. Somehow, eating them in big slices does not give the kind of pleasure when you eat them in thin slices whilst admiring the layers.
My mother-in-law learnt this recipe from an Indonesian many years back and she bakes this cake annually. Though you might say that I am partial, I must say that her Kuih Lapis is the best I’ve eaten so far. Try out the recipe for Kuih Lapis here. It’s worth the work!
This is my mother-in-law’s recipe for Kuih Lapis
  • 350 grammes butter
  • ½ tin condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon full mixed spice
  • 1 teaspoon golden syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essense
  • 2 teaspoon rum or brandy
  • 1 tablespoon almond or cashew nut powder
  • 18 egg yolks (cold)
  • 3 egg whites (cold)
  • 100 grammes flour
  • 180 grammes sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ovalette
  • 25 ml cold water
Beat (A) till light.
Beat (B) using low speed before gradually increasing speed and beat till stiff .
Fold (A) mixture into the (B) mixture and then grill layer by layer till finished. The grill must be hot and the procedure must be fast. When done, place cake into oven temperature no. 4 or 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 5 minutes.

Recipe Van Houten Chocolate Cake

Van Houten Chocolate cake, anyone? If you are looking for a tried and tested recipe for chocolate cake, you might want to try this out. This chocolate cake recipe is actually modified from the scroll cake recipe. Medium moist, light and buttery, it makes you want to have another piece once you’ve eaten one. Van Houten Cocoa Powder is used in this recipe. If you can’t find it, you might also want to try the Tudor brand. As for butter, we use Golden Churn brand. SCS butter is also a good substitute.
To prevent sticking, ensure that the baking pan is well greased with butter followed by dusting with flour. Cool the cake over a rack before storing.
Oh, in case you were wondering, the Van Houten Chocolate Cake is on the foreground. The other pieces of cakes are the famous Sarawak Layer Cake (Kuih Lapis Sarawak). Looks good, don’t they?

When it comes to preparing healthy meals at home, don't underestimate the value of your freezer. A well-stocked freezer can save you a trip to the store when you're pressed for time, which could mean the difference between making dinner and ordering in. It also lets you save meals that you prepare in big batches ahead of time, take advantage of discounts at the grocery store, and keep food that might otherwise go to waste.

Freezing is also an easy way to preserve local, in-season, fruits, and veggies that you buy at farmers markets or grow in your garden. If you want to eat delicious tomatoes in the dead of winter, for example, but are intimidated by canning, freezing is worth considering.

But just how long will that casserole or whole chicken last in the freezer? According to the Food Safety and Inspection Service, food stored in a freezer set at 0 degrees Fahrenheit will stay safe indefinitely. But that doesn't mean the taste and texture will remain the same.

Here is a guide to how long you can freeze foods before you sacrifice quality. Keep in mind that quality does deteriorate the longer food sits in your freezer, so aim to defrost sooner rather than later.

    * Bacon: 1 to 2 months
    * Breads: 2 to 3 months
    * Casseroles: 2 to 3 months
    * Cooked beef and pork: 2 to 3 months
    * Cooked poultry: 4 months
    * Cookie dough: 3 months
    * Fruit: 8 to 12 months
    * Frozen dinners: 3 to 4 months
    * Hot dogs: 1 to 2 months
    * Lunch meats: 1 to 2 months
    * Sausage: 1 to 2 months
    * Soups and stews: 2 to 3 months
    * Uncooked chicken (parts): 9 months
    * Uncooked chicken (whole): 1 year
    * Uncooked steaks, chops, or roasts: 4 to 12 months
    * Uncooked ground meat: 3 to 4 months
    * Vegetables: 8 to 12 months

Basic tips for freezing food:

    * Freeze foods as close to purchase (or harvest if you have a garden) as possible. The fresher food is when you freeze it, the better the quality when you defrost it.
    * While most foods can be frozen, there are some foods you should keep out of the freezer. Don't freeze canned foods or eggs in shells (which can crack and allow bacteria to enter). Technically you can freeze mayonnaise, cream sauce, and lettuce, but the quality takes a big hit. Here's a list of foods that don't freeze well with details on their condition after thawing.
    * Cool cooked foods down before freezing so they freeze faster, which helps preserve quality.
    * Packaging matters and varies depending on what you're freezing. If you choose glass over plastic containers, wrap, or bags, you'll need to make sure it's tempered so it doesn't break.
    * You can freeze meat in its original packaging, but if you want to store it for long periods of time, add an additional layer of packaging, such as plastic wrap or bags.
    * It's always a good idea to label items so you know what they are and how long they've been in the freezer.
    * Resist the temptation to defrost foods on your countertop. The three safest ways to thaw foods are in your fridge, in cold water, and in the microwave.

How to freeze fresh produce:

    * The key to freezing fresh fruit is to spread out the cleaned, dried, and prepared (cut up) pieces of fruit on cookie sheets. Once the individual pieces of fruit are frozen, you can combine and put in freezer bags. Some people prefer to pack fruits in sugar or sugar syrup to help preserve texture and flavor. The National Center for Home Food Preservation has tips on how to freeze specific fruits such as strawberries, tomatoes, peaches, and many more.
    * Vegetables usually need to be blanched (boiled or steamed for a short time) before freezing to maintain flavor, color, and texture. Blanching times vary depending on the vegetable. The National Center for Home Food Preservation has a chart with blanching times for everything from corn to collard greens and simple instructions for how to freeze a large variety of vegetables.
