Rima said...

Hmmm actually tak rasa masam pong.. maybe the vinegar that u use tak?

DG said...

Hi Kak Rima i'm always on ur website and i simply just love the recipes you have on here. i've tried a few and they've turned out simply delightful and my hubby & kids enjoyed them. Well tomorrow's my hub's birthday and i was browsing around for some recipes for a chocolate cheesecake and i guess i'm in luck when i stumbled upon this! i've got some questions that im hoping u can help me with:

1) what type of flour do u use for this?
2) do u need to use caster sugar or will normal sugar do?
3) can i use hot choc cocoa powder, the cadbury ones?


thanks!!

ShaSha said...

uhh..lagi-lagi tersentap masuk sini..wish that i can taste it! huhu..

CTZee said...

Oooh how sinful this must be. Mesti nak try.

I hope you feel better today K. Rima. Betul kata SurayaCoghlan, I pun tarek selimut, peluk bantal kalau I feel yucky. Like my hb says....maju tak gentar mbak. ^_*

tun_telani said...

wahhhh.. looks soo yummy!!

Janine said...

Just stumbled upon your blog recently, and I must say that I've been wowed by your cakes! All of them look so lovely :D

Sizuka said...

rima,

ok! my cake tak rasa masam. i thought it's supposed to rasa masam.. hehe. phew! lega i.. kalau mcm tu, red velvet tu rasa lebih kurang mcm marble cake yg i buat cuma a bit chocolatey je. erm.. i wonder, why the craze everywhere?

KG said...

oh! am so gonna try this for my she who must be obeyed boss who asked me to fix desserts for her bady nxt week! tqs much rima....saya bz banget tak sempat nak try recipe lately syukur ada you!

MamaFaMi said...

Felt yukie pun, kek cantik malatops. Kalau mama felt yukie, jawabnya... semua hancus!

Anonymous said...

Haveee i still hv not bagi bagi kan lagi.. u know lah weekend.. usually i dont really bake so this cake kira my standby cake for the weekend but if u want u can always take it fm me.. no probs hehehe

Rima said...

Bliss Anne
Hehhe kira kita serupa.. work well under pressure ahakss

Anonymous said...

Tak tahu nak cakap apa dah Rima. Bersyukur sangat2 jumpa blog u ni.

Me too, just like u, if i feel yukie, i can only bake or cook but not prolike U.Nak nyorok dalam bilik, bilik ai ada satu je. Cam ne???

U are gifted.

Rima said...

Sue
U know me lah.. i work well under pressure aka stress.. sure nak bake one..tarik selimut also shiok but kan badan penat penat lepas tu..

izahdaut said...

bagus nya kalau stress boleh baking..kalau saya semua tak jadi...baik tido je..haha..eh bukannya boleh tido seharian pun kan.hehehe

sangat sangat cantik kek nyer tu.ni dapat sepotong pun dah cukup

Rima said...

Babe
come to think of it.. yg pakai byk telur tu lah yg sure menjadi one.. if u do calculation same aje.. telur one tray baru $5+.. valrhona chocolate tu 200g dah close to $12.. maybe $13.. then u usually satu kalu buat ganache pun tak boleh cukup one if u only buy 200g.. nangissss

Try buat ah.. worth it.. not as moist as ur typical cake .. as i said it has a texture of brownie/cake.. maybe if u add more coffee syrup it will be lagi moist tak?? shrugg neverthelss what can go wrong if u hv the combination of cheese+chocolate+ganache hehehe

Rima said...

Faz
Ty dear.. good to know that u hv tried some of the recipes in my blog.. anyway regarding ur question

1) i used ur typical flour.. tepung gandum/all purpose flour
2) i used caster sugar in my bakes.. even when i cook i use caster sugar hahaha
3) No i wud advise u to at least use hershey for the cocoa powder if u hv no time to go out and get a better quality cocoa powder like valrhona and cocoa berry.

Gd Luck and happy baking!

Ribbon Clown said...

I pun suka bake kalau stress, tp lagi stress kalau nak bake time stress, tapi ingredients tak cukup plak kat pantry.. jeles ng ur pantry yg macam bakery store tuh hehe

Rima said...

Shidah
I wouldnt say it has no character in it.. after all u are using buttermilk and also vinegar.. it taste somewhat like devil chocolate cake yg pakai cream cheese tu.. cara dia pun akan akan cuma bezanye vinegar aje.. and tak ketinggal the super uber red colour hehehe

HaSue said...

memang menggugat diet!ouchh..
ur little girl so cute!comot2 pun cam model je..hehe
mmg menawan tertawan laa nengok kek nih..

AzLiN said...

Salam Kak Rima, when I 1st saw the pict, I was like "OMG!!!" Terngah-ngah mulut I. I am so gonna do this. Best eh, walaupun stress, menjadi kek akak. If me, I rather not risk it. When I bake, I MUST have happy & clear thoughts. Alhamdullilah, all your recipes that I've tried, menjadi 100% (walaupun tak secantik akaknya). :D

AzLiN said...

Kak Rima, I forgot to ask, can we don't use coffee? Can we use chocolate instead? Maklumlah, me & hubby not coffee people.

If i feel jucky actually i can go to so many rooms in my house.. pernah sekali i felt yucky and i ran to my rooftop only to go back down to my kitchen within 10mins.. boring bangat.. if got oven kat rooftop sure tak boring agaknye hahaha

Rima said...

Izah

Rima said...

Mas
Funny kan.. tengah stress boleh menjadi.. tengah relax and that frust .. a simple kek macam kek lemon tu boleh bantut 3 kali sekali gus hehe

Rima said...

Mamasya
Sonia is addicted to chocolate but not just ordinary chocolate.. cerewet budak tu.. shes into dark chocolate.. u gv her those outside chocolate macam cadbury ke ape dia tak suka.. think pasal its milk chocolate.. my baking chocolate jugak yg dia suka.. tu sebab each time i do ganache.. habis licin dia kerja kan :op

Rima said...

HaSue

Sheila said...

So beautiful k.Rima.. I've never made this type of cake.. Will definitely try this one. I'm in love with your cake!

Rima said...

Azlin
Cuba tutup mulut mu itew.. dah malam ni hahaha.. regarding ur question.. if u tak nak pakai coffee syrup.. u use sugar syrup ok.. recipe very the simple.. 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of warm water.. u stir and can use already..

The reason why most chocolate cake uses coffee syrup tu pasal ur cake akan taste much more richer dng adenye caffeine itew hehehe

Rima said...

Sabaria
Insyallah.. if jemput harus datang tau walaupun mu jauh hehehe

Rima said...

Hahah cik mat.. u buat i susah lah cik mat.. if pengsan dua kali.. nak kena tolong revive cik mat dua kali.. :op
