Its not all rosey posey...

I am tired and I am feeling shitty today.. oh well.. we hv our days.. somedays are good.. somedays are bad.. thats life ey.. u cannot run away fm it.. :o(

See the pic abv?? well i hv been busy baking snow princess since yesterday.. i've only done 400 odd pcs.. alot more to go lol.. i hope i will get it all done bef chinese new year! gulp

Anyway today i took a breather and baked these beauties after baking two batches of snow princess... after a while of baking the same stuff .. i got really bored so since i had like a few bananas in my fridge.. i thought why not give Anie's recipe a try.. well yep.. u were right Anie.. the texture is super soft.. almost like a cross between sponge and chiffon cake.. I like it alot.. even mom said its delish.. so ty for sharing this wonderful recipe and err no comment fm hb since hes in Vietnam again! blahhhhh

1/2 cup butter - 113g
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups mashed banana (about 3 medium bananas)
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt - I used 1 tsp since i used unsalted butter
1/4 cup baking cocoa - barry callebaut
1 cup chocolate chips - i used both white and chocolate chips

1. In mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg, vanilla, and bananas, beating thoroughly.
2. In a separate bowl, combine flour, soda, baking powder, and salt. Add to creamed mixture and mix well.
3. Divide batter in half. Add the cocoa to one portion of the batter. Spread that portion in the bottom of a greased 9 x 13-inch (I used 9x9) baking dish. Spoon remaining batter on top, swirling gently with butter knife if desired, and sprinkle with chocolate chips.
4. Bake at 170C for 30 minutes or until batter tests done with a toothpick or fork. Cool and cut into 24 squares

Oh bef i go.. i thought id share a little news.. my little Sonia is toilet trained.. i didnt wanna train her at younger age cos i knew it wud be easier if i did it when shes almost 3.. so all is good cos it only took me 2 days to train her and guess what is her common phrase right now.. "I want to kenching" hahahahha

Good night peeps.. hv a good friday.. hv a good weekend.. am planning to take sonia for a girls day out tmrw.. cheers!

zarin said...

my dotter dulu slalu ckp nk wee wee (keching ye :D) then bila sampai bathroom cancel plak..kluar bathroom, tk sempat pakai pants dah terburai depan pintu uhuhu
anyway, i've tried those CBBS sedap..errr itu kata my friends ehehe i sempat mkn 1/2 square je :D

izahdaut said...

kak rim..saya pun baru lagi buat banana square ni..lembut gituu kan.

cepat tul pandai dak sonia ni.anak saya boys 2 orang tu..owww manyak susah lol nak training..lagi suka 'membuang' diam diam sebalik langsir atau dalam bilik layan blues sorang2.kalau ada org dlm bilik, dia akan halau dan buat hajat.tapi melepas hajat still dlm diapers la..haha..

btw, 2 days bfore saya termimpi kan sonia.haha..mimpi sedang tidorkan tak jumpa depan mata, jumpa dlm mimpi pun comel n bijak..apa apa je kan....ikiki

Rima said...

Ah ah.. busy giler.. tak tahu lah i gatal take itew order lol.. nasib i cancel itew 30,00 pcs kalau tidak.. walio weiii .. tak sempat nak berus gigi agak nye.. tido kat dapur gentel kuih tart hahahha

Did i typed potty?? lahhh tu lah padahnye if update blog malam buta.. nak type toilet ke potty pulak.. bila masa pulak ade potty kat toilet hahahha.. she will tell me nak kenching and then i will duduk kan dia kat jamban.. penat wei naik turun cos my house tak de toilet kat living room/ kitchen floor.. its either basement.. 2nd flour or 3rd floor yg ade toilet :o(

Rima said...

Haizzz Zarin.. terburai kat carpet tak .. terburai kat atas katil ade but only once.. bila ditanya dia kata tak nak kenching.. then after that kenching on my bed.. dia duduk diam diam play ipod.. aleh aleh i saw basah aje katil ku.. haizz naik angin mama dia kejap. mengaum macam singa hahahha.. then she saw i hv to cuci quilt cover, fitted sheet, mattress protector, jemur my feather mattress topper and then jemur tilam.. dia boleh membebel sendiri.. "mama tired.. must tell.. wait mama angry" lahhhh budak ni.. part buat kita guilty nbr one hahaha

Rima said...

Hahhaha Izah, part layan blues tu tak leh angs.. i can imagine their faces.. i can imagine sembunyi belakan langsir hehhe

Your 2 boys younger than Sonia kan?? teringat si sonia.. she memang dari baby probs bila buat nbr 2 .. so part dia nak buat nbr 2.. dia halau kita orang cos takut we paksa dia duduk kat jamban.. lucky now shes ok ..

Mimpi tido kan Sonia.. hehhe.. pada reality nye all i hv to do every day.. put her to bed, kasi susu and cabut keluar fm her room.. kira jgn pandang belakang ah hahahha

Unknown said...

hee hee kalau yg merah looked sexy ... yg nie look gorgeous actually ape2 yg chocolate to gorgeous ar hee hee ...
Kak Rima take care eh and have a good weekend

Rima said...

Ty Ilah.. its a brand new day so hopefully not feeling shitty anymore.. going out with sonia later and do what we do best.. shop hehehe

Anonymous said...

another reason why i keep visiting this site. you obviously can afford to sit back and relax but no, you choose to have a colourful life.

congrats on sonia being potty trained. have a great weekend

Bakericious said...

looks so chocolatey and delicious.

Hi Rima,

Good luck to your snow princess baking marathon. I noticed the boxes...are they air tight?

Sonia doesn't look like 3. I thought she could be around 5 :) Is she going to attend playschool soon? You can try to put a layer of plastic just below your bedsheet during this potty training time. In case she accidentally does it, it gets onto your bedsheet and the plastic layer only and not on the rest of the items. I used the plastic which people use as table cloth..can just buy it from some shops for 1 - 2 meter :)This method works for me.

Warm Regards,

CS said...

Sah you nih mmg Queen Flourlah. Nak taip floor pun jadi flour, heheh.. I like!

Dah tua2 ni, kadang kala I do hide behind the curtain tapi bukan nak layan blues.. cuma main semunyik2 dgn auwww... u know wholah..

Biskut tu khas untuk XMas kan? Resipi tu dah lama I simpan bawah tiak (close to the heart gitu tapi xbuat2 juga)

Anonymous said...

Siapalah punya order tu? Sanggup dia seksa U atau U yang sanggup terima order?

BTW, congratulation utk Princess Sonia. After this try to toilet train b4 going to bed, hopefully she will stay dry till early in the morning and go to toilet the first thing in the morning. Don't so ambitious, but one by one.

lepas ni Emak & bapak dia save duit lah dari membeli diapers. Ngeee


Ayu said...

salam rima,
rajin betul u ni..dah sibuk ambik order masih ada energy nak buat benda2 lain..
sonia dah toilet trained ya..congrats, dah boleh save sikit duit diaperskan..hehe..

lena said...

rima, this looks too good, would like to try this someday, what are those snow princess?

Kongkang Malaya said...

400 pieces and still going? Wow! I would go bonkers already if i were you :D

Lil Sonia is fast, eh? Good girl! I'm wondering what would be her phrase if comes the time when she wanna do number 2? :D

Mas said...

perhhh..tergoda betul tengok gmbr bottom tu....gerenti sangat sedapp kan kak rima...

Rima said...

You too Noir.. a colourful one is much more brighter than ur normal day to day colour ey.. the thing is i am always on the move.. macam penat if i sit diam diam so better off doing something :o)

Rima said...

Yes it was Jess.. easy to prepare and the best part u might hv all the things in ur pantry already..

Rima said...

I cannot recall how i did it with Hairi but it was a quick one..

The box is not airtight.. cookies are like melt in ur mouth type so dont need to be airtight.. just sealed it with scotch tape around the box..

Rima said...

Muahaha cik som.. tu kira pun blues ah.. kira tangkap steam hahahha

Ye ker flour instead of floor hahha.. apadahhh

Yes that snow princess yg i buat waktu xmas.. this one tak use any almond meal..

Rima said...

A big chunk actually is not dia punya diapers.. its dia punya gain IQ milk powder.. macam nak pengsan.. satu bulan 4 big cans but thats ok.. selagi dia nak susu selagi tu lah i will gv it to her..

Nobody siksa i pong.. gatal sendiri.. dah a decade tak ambil order anymore but lately i feel like taking orders.. tu pun of and on lah.. whenever i feel like it.. :o)

Rima said...

Alhamdullilah.. susu masih kuat tu hehehe

Actually i used to take lots and lots of orders.. dah tu after a few years i stopped cos i get bored doing the same thing.. ni after 10yrs of not taking any order at all.. i decided that the only way for me to practice my icing is by taking orders for bday cakes.. i am taking this snow princess order simply cos i feel like it.. dah tu ambik kau.. macam tak leh tenteram selagi tak habis mengentel hahah

Rima said...

hmmmm snow princess rasanye akan akan makmur without any peanuts.. more halus and more melt in ur mouth.. bila makan sure satu kotak also can finish.. recipe u can get it fm my previous post .. the one without any almond powder in it..

Rima said...

Ni dah hampir hampir nak bonkers lah hahaha.. tak pe.. tak pe.. mengikut firasat patik.. by thursday it shud be done.. then i will hv to start with baking layer cake pulak.. that one i loike cos tak penat duduk and gentel :op

Rima said...

oh lupa.. her phrase for nbr 2.. "I want to bay rakkkksss" with a slang mat salleh muahahhaa

Unknown said...

Kak Rima ... I feel inspired after watching MasterChef on TV ... so I pun try lar bake cupcake (this time i tak belik from the kotak) ... i sedih all my cupcake ade hole in the center and the batter all over flowing ... i sedih it looks disgusting ... i dunno wat i do wrong cos i follow the recipe

Kak Nik Ja said...

salam Rima...rajin nye mengukis!! nak gentel2 and bagi dia same size tuh memang menmerlukan ketekunan dan kesabaran yg tinggi..rima guna ape nak bagi size cookies tu sama??
well done sonia...harap2 tak kencing malam2 atas katil yek!! kalau tak susah jugak nak cuci tuh!
a very gud luck to the mom!

Rima said...

Ya rabbi.. kesian nye.. what recipe did u used?? did u post it on ur blog.. wait i go there ok.. cheer up cos sometimes things dont go as planned.. wait ah i go ur "hse"

Rima said...

Aduhh Mokwonik.. i need all the luck that i can get.. the funny thing is shes good during the day.. part malam tu.. punya lah susah.. but i kasi dia pakai diaper pants.. she will bangun for her toilet .. benda tu buat standby kot kot terlepas sebelum terjaga heheh

I used 1/2 tbsp to get all even size.. so kira i will scoop the dough then gentel then shape it like crescent..

Unknown said...

=) thanx kak rima ... today kalau masih ade semangat i will buy SRF lar ... I wan to see the diff

Rima said...

Good luck Ilah!

Halo Rima,

I tried your choc bottom banana square yesterday night. Was so happy with the outcome. It was so delicious :) Thanks for sharing all the good recipe with us.

Ms V

Rima said...

Its delicious indeed.. i baked it for the concorde staff in KL and the FB manager asked me if i wanna work there hahahha.. hes so so funny!

Anonymous said...

Hi Rima, can tell him, you don't mind working there if he provides you all the super duper fringe benefits :) I am wondering if you plan to provide some baking lessons for those who are interested? I would be interested to join if you do offer baking lessons :)

Ms V

Rima said...

Ms V
I received lots of emails asking me the same question.. some even want me to do a one on one lesson.. for now i dont even see myself teaching others.. i still hv lots to learn myself.. my hb encourage me to conduct lesson but am still thinking abt it.. will announce if i do wanna start any baking class :o)

Anonymous said...

Hi Rima,

Maybe you can start teaching and at the same time continue your learning journey. I think learning is never ending. There is no way to measure if one is ready to start teaching others in baking. Of course, I will be the happiest if you start the classes :)

All the best Rima :)
