chocolatechips Walnut Cookies 巧克力粒核桃曲奇

我烤这个曲奇的时候屋子都弥漫着famous amos 的味道!Hmm, 好香!

我妹不喜欢吃我做的蛋糕,她说没卖相,她只要吃美美的蛋糕,好像cake house 的蛋糕她才要吃,给她气死!不过她喜欢吃曲奇,所以也常常做一些曲奇给她!

我没有 苦味巧克力所以用巧克力粒来代替,也没有黄砂糖,就把10g的面粉换成可可粉,因为想成品看起来有点褐色。因为家人不吃甜,所以减了糖量和巧克力粒。因为觉得原食谱有点甜。

软化牛油 125
黄砂糖 100 我没用
幼糖 80      我用50
Butter-Vanilla香精 8    我用Vanilla香精
鸡蛋 1 
面粉 180  (筛过)
发粉 1小匙
苦味巧克力 150 (切细块)我用100g chocolatechips
核桃 100 (切细块)

1.        将黄砂糖,幼糖和牛油一起搅拌。
2.        然后加入Vanilla香精和鸡蛋,再搅拌。(鸡蛋要一点一点加)
3.        接着加入面粉和发粉搅拌均匀。
4.        倒入苦味巧克力与核桃细块,再搅拌。(不要搅拌过度刚混合好就可以了)
5.        预热烤箱170度上下火,用汤匙将糊料挖出,排在铺了烘培纸的烤盘上,再用手稍微  按扁。
6.        放入预热烤箱,以170,上下火烘20分钟.
7.        烘好后拿出,先待在烤盘5分钟,然后放在网架待凉,收入罐子。

Note:最好使用苦味巧克力Bitter Chocolate,出来的香味和口感是甜味烘培巧克力比不上的。

Durian Cream Cake for my bro's birthday 榴莲鲜奶油蛋糕

This is my bro's birthday cake.
He's really a big fan of durians, he ate them since he was in my mother stomach.
My mum used to ate durian every night few months before she gave birth to my bro.

When it is his birthday, i made him this durian cream cake.
I stole the idea for decoration from net,hehe but i add the kitkat to make it more like a durian.

I add a lot of durian puree into the cream mixture. When i assembly the cake, i add evenmore durian puree between the layers. So, this cake is really a heavy durian cake, Those who dislike durian pls stay away or u will vomit when just smelling of it.But my bro like it very much and so do my family.My bro even ate more than half of the cake alone. ^^ Happy,happy

I used chocolate chiffon as the cake base, My dad said it seems like rotten durian, hehe

Here are more pics but becoz the recipe is just to complicte so i dun post it here,

Pandan Chiffon Swiss Roll 班兰蛋糕卷

Tada...My first successful swiss roll
Dunno how many times i have baked this swiss roll but this time is the most successful one,
so happy when i managed to roll it nicely without crack ^^
the previous attempts all cracked and this may be due to overbake of the cake which turns the cake too dry.
My mum love it very much since she is a pandan-flavour lover and my dad thumbs up too.

But the thing i m not happy with is that the whipped cream is too thick, will cause my tummy bigger n bigger ><
Next time must reduce the amount of the cream

I used pandan paste this time since i dun hav of pandan leaves in my garden, so maybe is a bit artificial,
but just once is no harm right?

Here are more pics of the roll, sorry for poor quality of the pics since my skill in photographing is really ...u know

                   Why the cake looked like yellowish green? It is green actually.

                                The cake is very fluffy and spongy!!!

20g sugar (40g)
