Orange Cake - including the Recipe ^_^

So after the dinner last Saturday, i manage to pass my attempted Chocolate pudding to my family and at the same time manage to get a copy of Popo's old recipe book which is more of a newer version since my Kuku aka Aunty, compiled and photocopy it.

Wat happen was, i brought the book back home and tried baking the Orange Cake last Monday and it turn out pretty well just that the bottom was pretty burn, due to the fact that the oven was still new, and mama and i wasn't sure whether we should really follow the book directly. We did, and that was the result.

Anyway, i tried it again today... and it turn out really well *clap for self*... hehehe... this time manage to take a picture of it.. I know it looks small that's b'coz i cut some for the family and some for Rafiq & his wife (Hubby's business Partner).

By the way, just in case some of you would like to try out the recipe.. this is how it is:-

(1) 4 ozs./125gm butter
(2) 4 ozs./125gm sugar
(3) 3 eggs.
(4) Grated rind of 1/2 orange (the orange skin)
(5) 6 ozs./168gm of Self Raising Flour or Ordinary Flour Sifted with 1 1/2 teaspoons of Baking Powder,
(6) Juice of 1/2 orange

(1) Cream Butter and Sugar.
(2) Add egg yolks, one at a time, and beat well. Add grated rind.
(3) Add egg whites which have been beaten to a stiff froth. (make sure the bowl is free of oil)
(4) Add flour, folding it in, and when smooth,
(5) Add orange juice.
(6)Pour batter into two sandwhich tins, which have been greased and lined (but i just put it into one tin)
(7) Baked for about 1/2 hour in moderate oven (based on recipe book moderate means 175 degrees) - (but for me was just 140 degrees, b'coz my oven had the iron rod, both up and down).
(8) When done, remove cake from oven and cool on cake rack.

For Topping (as suggested by the recipe book)
Butter Icing and sprinkle over it coloured sugar drops, choped walnuts or grated chocolate.

So do give it a try... never know there's an aspiring Chef some where within u... ^_^

Amanda, Mummy & Adrian's Birthday

Last Saturday, we celebrated 3 family member's birthday, mum's, amanda's and Adrian. Amanda was on the 23rd, Mum was on the 27th & Adrian was on the 30th. So to save money, we all decided to just celebrate it all in 1 day.

Mum, suggested this place called Basil, in Bangsar Village (old wing)..It serves Thai cuisine and it's hidden on the other side of the mall. We were all there by 8.30pm, coz Adrian had his tution till 8.15pm.

So, once we were there, we all ordered our own dish.. due to the fact that Adam and i had our dinner earlier for Buka Puasa... we ordered one plate of Spicy Seafood Spaghetti with Basil and share it together.

Mum, sis and dad ordered the Pineapple Chicken Rice... Dad even ordered this Fried Mince Chicken in Crab Shell... which was pretty yummy. Popo aka grandma... ordered the Beef Noodle... and the lil brother ordered Beef with Spring Onions and Rice.

Out Appetizer was this plate that look like those Beetle Leave's but this is the Thai version... and it taste really good...

For dessert, the lil brother and i had this Steam Banana with Santan, while both mum and Dad ordered the Water Chestnut and Jackfruit with shredded ice and syrup.

Conclusion, everything tasted really good in this restaurant... the ambiance and the furniture make the place really cozy.. not too crowded, nice for a family affair.

Till than,
