Gong Xi Fa Cai!



Wishing all my Chinese readers a happy and prosperous year of the rabbit!

Hey guys.. here i am again.. updating my blog.. last night i had a temporary breakdown and told hb that maybe i shud just stop blogging.. dont get me wrong yah.. its not cos of that stupid fb incident.. its just me going thru my mood swings.. probably also its the time of the month.. am tired fm all the CNY bakes.... my body is aching and i had a terrible headache yesterday.. not just that.. i dont think that i will ever get to properly rest since hb is going away for a week to Spain.. (i hate it when he has to travel!) yadda yadda yadda.. nevertheless i am back on my feet now.. no more date lines since i hv delivered all my bakes.. Alhamdullilah..



Sonia is still not fully recovered.. we took her to see Dr Kumar last Monday and went straight home after that since i had not even started baking my layer cake orders.. my SIL is no longer staying at our place ( shes now staying at my PIL's place since she has a friend in town.. this weekend they will be flying to KK to do mountain climbing and also diving)




Anywho other than that.. theres not much going on.. am back to my daily routine as of today.. cooking and baking for my family and today i decided on Tiramisu simply bec my mascarpone cheese expire yesterday.. welp! i know .. i know i shud just throw it away but if u guys hv a tub of 500g of mascarpone cheese wouldnt u be tempted to bake something out of it... hmmm




Ingredients
250g mascarpone cheese
300 ml whipped cream
100 gr powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

4 egg yolks
50g caster sugar

Coffee syrup
2 tablespoons instant coffee - i used espresso coffee
150 ml warm water
1 tbsp granulated sugar
150 ml Kahlua / rhum (if liked)
20 pcs lady finger sponge cake or chocolate 3 pieces of size 22x22x3cm

Topping
Whipped cream and cocoa powder to taste


Method
Whisk mascarphone, set aside.
Beat whipped cream and powdered sugar until thick and stiff. Set aside in refrigerator to prevent melting.
Beat the egg yolks, caster sugar, and vanilli until thick, then continue beating on top of boiling water (double boil) until the eggs warm (55C). Off fire.. Lift and continue beating until the eggs cool again. Turn off mixer.
Remove the whipped cream from the refrigerator. Add mascarpone into whipped cream mixture and whisk it using speed no 1.. pour the beaten egg yolks, stir till blended completely.

Combine sugar, water, coffee, and rhum (optional), stir well, set aside.

Assembling
Prepare a baking pan or glass casserole dish.. arrange lady fingers on the base.. drizzle with coffee liquid until moist. Pour mascarpone mixture, smooth the top.
Arrange lady fingers again, drizzle coffee liquid.. pour mascarpone mixture again.. if ur casserole dish is taller u can also do a three layer tiramisu..
Place in fridge to let it set.. decorated top with whipped cream and sifted cocoa powder.



A good ole Tiramisu in a tub hehehe.. i doubled this recipe since i had 500g of mascarpone .. This one is for u SIL.. enjoy!!

My favourite! Tiramisu!! This week rumah I mabuk trifle. I've made trifle 3 times this week sebab itu la yg paling senang.

rima, please dont stop blogging. i love looking at you beautiful creations! it's therapeutic. :D

Nin said...

I would make one also if I have that much of mascarpone cheese in the fridge. It's expensive and sayang nak buang. By the way it's only one day gap. Have a speedy recovery to you and Sonia.

Maya Marisa said...

Rima,
the moment i saw those tiramisu, i terus teringat kat my mascarpone in my fridge. hhmm i wonder if it has expired...
keep on writing babe. dont give up. obstacles are everywhere. we are here to support :).
at my hb's regional office (in SG la kan...heheh mana lagi), there's this mat salleh guy from UK who loves to sing ...drum roll....lagu broery you...title Widuri...his voice is soooooo nice & merdu & lunak. akan tetapi, tak reti cakap melayu or indonesian. aiseh, potong stim betul.
p/s: jgn lupa collect award yea...

Rima said...

Ty Nin for ur doas and yes.. bila i check and looked at the expiry date.. biji mata macam nak terbeliak.. benda tu bukan nye murah.. typical me i always beli cos i like it when i hv the things there for me to use it whenever a recipe calls for it.. tu sebab i go ahead aje and use it and tiramisu is the best option of cos since hb is a big fan of it..

Rima said...

Maya

Eh the other day my hb showed me this guy on you tube.. he loves to sing all the malay songs but tak tahu sepatah haram pun makna nye nor he can speaks bahasa.. memang betul potong stim aje...

Rima said...

K.Nor said...

salam rima, k.nor baru jer dpt landing kat rumah rima sejak balik dr puchong, selangor.. duk belek2 n3 yg terlepas rupanya ada kes curi gambar ya.. mmg k.nor tak suka sungguh dgn org yg amik kerja mudah ni.. kita yg penat2 dia senang2 jer curi dan crop gambar dan kunun2 dia org yg buat.. mmg sakit hati bila fikir semua ni..

btw.. is it okey sbb k.nor dah banyak kali copy & paste resipi2 rima yg k.nor cuba kat blog k.nor.. bukan curi gambar tau.. hehe.. kalau tak boleh, jawabnya kena translate aje la kat blog akak for the next time nak cuba resipi kat sini (satu kerja yg kurang rajin sungguh nak translate hehehe).. apa pun thanks sbb sudi share resipi2 yg mabeles ya.. & semoga sonia segera sihat sepenuhnya.. aminnn

Sue said...

Hi rima...I suggest you get maid to do your order. You jadi towkay. Jadi you tak stress. Dont stop blogging plssss!! I have a fren who works in a canteen. Part time she take order for cakes & kueh talam. Every morning the maid buat kueh talam to send to shops. She said the maid salary easily covered by the kueh talam. Belum lagi cakes & cookies.
Love your pics....apa kueh you buat nampak perfect gitu. Keep it up dear....kaksue

Rima said...

Oh i hv been so busy that i tak de chance to jalan jalan rumah kawan2.. hope all is well with u KNor..

No no its perfectly alright to copy paste the recipe.. i also do the same thing too.. siapa kuasa nak taip taip ni hahaha.. yg mendatangkan marah tu bila orang sedap sedap copy and crop kita punya watermark dah tu kata dia tak niat nak mencuri gambar kita.. hmmm apakahhhh??

Rima said...

Sue
Honestly i am not going to do this as in taking orders permenantly.. when i feel like it i will say yes.. when i feel malas i will say no.. plus having a maid is like having another child in our household.. nanti if i travel.. siapa pulak nak jaga budak tuuu hehe

Rizd said...

Ummi said...

Rima said...

Blushing lah ummi.. gambar tu pasal camera ku kot hehe..

The one yg Rima letak topping tu actually tiramisu and not kek lapis.. kek lapis tu CNY punya orders :o)

kaezrin said...

rima, what can be a substitute for kahlua besides rums? actually i hv no idea what is kahlua..heheheh

Rima said...

both also liquor.. i tak sub to anything pong.. if u nak u can use rum essence w/o liquor type.. just a few drops will do.. dont over do it or else it will overpower the taste and smell of ur tiramisu
