End of a long story, start of Rima's Chocolate Truffles




So once again Rima's guest blogger steps in - the husband. I must be good, cos she always calls in the same guest blogger.


Today is a good day for Rima. The burden she has been carrying, the issues she has been having are finally over - solved today. Bottom line is, we hope that Hairi does not do nonsense anymore and stays out of trouble. Your mum was a wreck for the past few weeks you know... (yes, even her son reads this blog from camp...)







I'm looking forward to Eid. Rima goes all coo coo. Then again she's always coo coo. I mean who bakes as much as she does? I'm glad I have supportive staff who eat whatever is given to them - and they are nice enough to always say "whaa so nice". Take this afternoon for example - I come home from work and she complains of being tired. Why is she tired? Because she went to bed at 2am last night, woke up at 5 for sahur and then slept till 8. When Sonia slept for 1 1/2 (!) hours she decided to make cake kukus and her own new creation: Rima's Truffles (more below).. She needs to rest, but is too degil to do so... Ah well. What to do; mother stubborn, daughter stubborn, grand-daughter stubborn, and her two sisters... aiyoo same pot. Lucky I have nice brothers-in-law - they keep me sane... haha...


Anyway, back to Rima (she's complaining that her readers are falling asleep)...






Hehehe ty hb.. I didnt expect u to write so much! So ok.. I am not gonna bore u guys with more yak yak.. just to let u guys know that once again I appreciate all the doa's.. am blessed.. this morning when i received the good news.. I gave my thanks to Allah.. super big load off my shoulder... Alhamdullilah...





Oh heres a simple recipe fm me.. u dont need to be a genius to come up with something like this.. hb lovessssssssss it!!


Ingredients
200g chocolate cake - u can use any kinda leftover chocolate cake .. even cake yg " bantot" hehe
Abt 100g of leftover chocolate ganache
5 tbsp orange juice -
A handful of golden raisins - u can replace with almond nibs if ur not into raisins
Dark cooking chocolate for coating - I used chocolate couverture

Method
Place chocolate cake in food processor - blend - place in big bowl.
Cook orange juice and raisins for a good 10mins over low heat - switch off fire.. add raisins into chocolate cake and stir
Melt leftover ganache and pour it over the chocolate cake (double boil).. mix and let it sit for 15mins or so.
Roll cake into balls - set aside
Double boil dark chocolate - hmmm i didnt weigh it.. dip chocolate balls into melted chocolate and place it on ur tray (line with baking paper)
Chill tray ..

wah, ur guest writer rocks la.
anyway, will definitely give a try on this new dessert.
p/s- ur "almost famous" is a hit at my home... :)

Rima said...

Zee B. said...

Salam Rima it has been a while since i last visited n leave my footprint on here:).I love truffles so this recipe is def a must try.Thanks for sharing another great recipe and i hope you and the family is having a wonderful Ramadan.Gosh i miss Sg esp this time of the year.Btw,was reading ur previous post on ur nephew's birthday,i must say i love ur mum's house and her china collection.simply gorgeous.TC.

Rima said...

Hi Winnie
I am glad u tried that one cos that cake is one of our fav too.. I hv to make a few for the upcoming Eid so am looking forward to that..

Ty for coming by and enjoy ur stay hehehe

Take care!

Rima said...

Salam ZeeB
Salam Ramadhan to u and ur family too.. I can imagine how u rasa right now cos masa ramadhan orang melayu kita ni sibuk kat bazaar Geylang tu heheh..

How long hv u been living there?? tak balik Sg ke this year for Raya??

My mom ni memang suka benda benda gitew.. when she nak beli barang she always tanya pendapat I.. I am into all that but my hb tak so the only thing i can do is to help my mom spend her money on things like that hehehe

Cuba truffles tu cos memang enak :o)

Zee B. said...

I have been living on main land USA for over a year now.Before that i was in Hawaii for 3 and Japan for 2.Living the life as a nomad.The last time i went home pun was 2 years ago for raya.
This year tak balik lah since my daughter starts kinder in Sept.Insyallah, i balik at the end of the year or next year whenever school lets out.

I love tau benda benda antique especially the almari & china collection at ur mum's gives a slight vintage touch to the house.I think most men r that way when it comes to buying & decorating the house heheh but hey your husband makes a really good blog guest though.And i am impress by his command of the malay language.May you guys have a good Ramadan and a wonderful Eid.

Rima said...

Ahhh I hv been to the US a couple of times but ever since i got married to my hb.. I tak de chance gi sana lagi.. we travel quite a bit but never to the US together.. entah lah.. maybe someday bila i can persuade him but in the meantime our long haul will always be to Europe.

My hb memang can speak Malay very very well.. amah dia dulu orang melayu so first word dia pun malay jadi tak hairan lah why he can speak our language very well.. he can also speaks good Mandarin, German and French.. kira tak leh klentong dia hehehe

Shal said...

Akum rima,
how are u both... i hope u get enuf rest ya. Btw i wanted to tried out ur truffles (since i bake choc cake yesterday and left some for ur truffles). I made choc glazing (thicken cream + dark choc) yesterday and ada lebih. can i use it to replace the ganache? or is it a different thing? thanks

Rima said...

Shal
We hv been well.. Tks for asking..

Of cos u can.. My truffles is all abt leftovers hahaha.. Last wkend i tried using kek lapis+ganache (kek tu fm all edge of my lapis cake).. Rasanye same aje :))

Shal said...

akum rima,

yum yum la ur truffles, everybody loves it, hb said the raisins adds texture into it, which makes it very sedaaapppp....

my 2yrs old daughter loves it but she said 'tak mau kismis' she loves chocolate but she like it plain, she loves raisin but raisin alone fussy eater.

i even used orange juice in a box pemalas hahahks...

tq yek, sungguh sedap sekali and addictive. btw kalau i nak buat banyak macam mana nak simpan huh? nak stack takut penyek lak. how???

Rima said...

Shal
Glad the whole family suka.. if ur daughter tak suka kismis.. use raisin lah.. i use just abt what i hv in my fridge.. janji u cook it over low heat dgn orange juice..

If u nak buat banyak banyak u hv freeze the balls dulu.. bila nak dihidang kan u salut dgn chocolate the night bef or paginye.. i did this during my open house..gentel 3 pagi.. 7 pagi i salut dgn chocolate :o)
