Soft boiled egg and toast soldiers

MIL Maklong pelihara 5 ekor ayam betina dan tiap-tiap hari ayam tersebut bertelur. MIL Maklong yang pemurah tu tak pernah lokek berkongsi telur dari ayam peliharaannya. Kami sangat jarang makan roti tapi sekali sekala beli roti dan bila ada telur Paklong suka makan toast soldiers ni dicicah dalam telur setengah masak .

Chocolate cake

chocolate cake

Hari ni mak mertua Mak Long jemput makan sempena harijadi pak mertua Mak Long minggu lepas. Lewat seminggu sebab minggu lepas tak semua ahli keluarga dapat hadir. Mak Long bawak kek coklat yang Mak Long dah ubahsuai untuk sesuaikan dengan keperluan diabetik.

This cake was made using Delia Smith’s all-in-one quick sponge recipe with a slight twist.

Ingredients:

8 oz of ground almond

8 oz of butter

4 eggs

6 heaped tbsp of Splenda

4 tbsp of full-cream milk

2 tsp of baking powder

2 tbsp of cocoa powder

For the ganache

1 bar of 70% dark chocolate

50 ml of double cream

a knob of butter

For the filling

30 ml of double cream

1 tsp of splenda

1 vanilla pod

Heat the oven to gas mark 3. Prepare the cake tin by greasing it with softened butter and dredging it with flour. Sieve together the self-raising flour, baking powder and the cocoa powder. Add the rest of the ingredients except the milk. Beat thoroughly. Add the milk and mix again. Pour the mixture into the cake tin. Bake for 40 minutes or until skewer test comes up clean.

chocolate cake Turn onto the cooling rack.  Meantime prepare the filling and ganache. Scrape the seeds off the vanilla pod and add to the cream. Add splenda and whip until thick.

Heat the cream for the ganache. Break up the chocolate bar into little pieces. Pour the heated cream over the chocolate and stir until all melted. Add the knob of butter and stir again.

To assemble,  slice the cake in half horizontally. Fill the cake with vanilla cream and pour the ganache over the cake.

Soy milk pannacotta with raspberry coulis

soy milk pannacotta with raspberry coulis

Pencuci mulut malam ni, sebenarnya inspirasi dari soya bean pudding yang Mak Long nampak kat dapur Hana. Mengikut Hana, dia dapat resepi ni dari Kak Fida. Maklong bagi nama canggih sikit sebab resepinya lebih kurang resepi pannacotta cuma resepi asal pannacotta menggunakan campuran susu segar dengan double cream. Untuk sesuaikan dengan selera diabetik, Mak Long gantikan canned mixed fruit dari resepi Kak Fida dengan buah-buahan segar seperti raspberry. Apa pun terima kasih kepada Kak Fida dan Hana kerana berkongsi resepi.

 

Ingredients:

For the pannacotta:

1 liter carton of soy milk

1 tbsp of gelatine ( I used Halagel)

2 tbsp of Splenda

4 tbsp of hot water

For the raspberry coulis

150 gm of raspberry

juice 1 lemon

2 tbsp of orange juice

2 tbsp of Splenda

Heat the soy milk in a pan. Meanwhile sprinkle the gelatine over the hot water and stir to help it dissolve. As soon as the soy milk starts to boil add the splenda and stir. When it boils turn off the heat. Let it cool slightly and add the gelatine. Stir . Pour into individual ramekins and transfer into the fridge to let it set.

Next pick 10 best raspberries and set aside. Put the rest in a  small mixing bowl, add the lemon and orange juice and splenda. Blend thoroughly. Run the mixture through a sieve to separate the pips.

Serve the pannacotta with the coulis spooned over it and topped with fresh raspberries.
