Carrot Cake

Carrot Cake Recipe: credit see my remarks in purple

1 cup (100 grams) pecans or walnuts - i used walnut
3/4 pound (340 grams) raw carrots (about 2 1/2 cups finely grated) - maximum can goes to 3 cups
2 cups (260 grams) all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups (300 grams) granulated white sugar (mine is half -half with brown sugar)
1 cup (240 ml) safflower, vegetable or canola oil (or other flavorless oil) - I used sunflower oil.
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Cream Cheese Frosting:

1/4 cup (57 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature
8 ounces (227 grams) cream cheese, room temperature
2 cups (230 grams) confectioners (powdered or icing) sugar, sifted . manis sikit , I reduced it to 1 1/4 cups
1 teaspoon (4 grams) pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest (outer yellow skin) (optional)

How to do it?

Toast the pecans or walnuts for about 8 minutes or until lightly browned and fragrant. Let cool and then chop coarsely.

Peel and finely grate the carrots.

In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and ground cinnamon.

In bowl of electric mixer (or with a hand mixer), beat the eggs until frothy (about 1 minute). Gradually add the sugar and beat until the batter is thick and light colored (about 3 - 4 minutes). Add the oil in a steady stream and then beat in the vanilla extract. Add the flour mixture and beat just until incorporated. With a large rubber spatula fold in the grated carrots and chopped nuts. Evenly divide the batter between the two prepared pans and bake 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Info: Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack. After about 5 -10 minutes invert the cakes onto the wire rack, remove the pans and parchment paper, and then cool completely before frosting.

If desired, garnish with toasted nuts on the top of the cake. (i do this! love the crunchiness)

Cream Cheese Frosting: In bowl of electric mixer (or with a hand mixer), beat the cream cheese and butter, on low speed, just until blended with no lumps. Gradually add the sifted powdered sugar and beat, on low speed, until fully incorporated and smooth. Beat in the vanilla extract, and lemon zest.

Homemade yummy creamy mushroom soup

It was a killer during my so call open house @raya celebration 2011. I've made my creamy mushroom soup, kari daging and kueh teow goreng.. mushroom soup and kari dikawankan with first choice mini bun.. sedap wooo :) Its a very simple menu but yet very fullfilling. biasaler since semua orang kat malaysia ni kalau open house buat menu hari raya kan.. macam lontong, nasi impit.. mine je a little bit different :)


200 gm Fresh mushroom..( preferred shitake mushroom), potong besar n kecik . kecik utk letak last. besar utk letak awal2.
Garlic (hancurkan)
Italian herbs (seketje, banyak sangat pahit)
black paper (to taste)
salt, sugar (to taste)
chicken stock (cube is ok, or you can do it yourself)
all purpose flour@ tepung gandum (segengam or 1/3 cups)
kentang (potong kecik2)

creamer/whipping cream - 200ml

How to do it ?

1. tumis garlic and italian herbs with olive oil and butter (tade butter, olive oil je pun ok. tapi i rasa lebih berlemak kalau ade butter ni). Just wait until naik bau yang wangi (bukan hangit ye).
2. put fresh mushroom (dah potong sederhana besar) , tepung gandum.. goreng agak2 garing seket. again jgn hangus ye kawan2 . sampai light brown. after that keluarkan n blender bersama2 air kosong/paip/sejuk or whatever. sebab kalau blend panas2 nanti rosak blender korang.
3. masukkan balik dalam periuk. taruk air ikut kepekatan yang disukai.
4. letak chicken stock.kentang (potong kecik2), mushroom (potong kecik2)
5. pepper,salt sugar to taste
6. Bila dah mengelegak..taruk creamer, kalau tade.. susu.. (rasa die lain seket la but still nice)
