Home again...

We got home safely on sat evening.. Solenn flew back to Paris last Sunday and guess what? both hb and I are down with slight fever, flu and cough.. arghhh shud i blame it on the weather in KL or shud i blame it on my antibodies.. i realised that i am getting there... u know its the age thingy when even the slightest moment.. like when u sit next to a sick person u will get the bug? well thats how it started.. we didnt even go to Cameron Highlands cos hb was not well..

Anyway i know doc told me to rest but i just cant.. Yesterday Lisa came by to clean our place and do some ironing which gave me all the time to bake something while hb is sleeping in our room.. his temp seems to be getting higher and higher and i seriously think that his work and all the travelling is taking a toll on him.. sigh

So ok.. I hv to go and lie down.. the medication makes me feel drowsy and my eyes are all watery.. heres the recipe folks ..

50g Wijsman butter
50g margarine
20g butter oil subtitute
(i used 120g wijsman butter)
2 egg yolks
60g icing sugar
1tsp lemon paste

115g low protein flour (cake flour)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp jahe powder (i didnt use any)
1/2 tsp spekoek powder
1/2 tsp salt

60g egg white
60g castor sugar
1/4tsp cream of tartar

Let it soak for an hour
200g mix fruits
50g rum (I used orange juice)

50g almond powder - baked for a few mins

Using a stand mixer, beat (A) using medium high speed till white
Add in sifted (B)... set aside
In another bowl whisk egg white and cream of tartar.. add sugar a little a time ad continue to whisk at high speed till siff peak.
Add in egg white batter into butter mixture.. fold in ur almond powder and also ur mix fruits
Bake in preheated oven of 170C for abt 30 mins

Chocolate cheesecake
500g cream cheese
150g icing sugar - sifted
1/4 tsp vanilla cream - i used vanilla paste
2 tbsp black forest paste
1 tbsp Moa Hopyes - i didnt use

300g eggs - abt 6 eggs

100g whipping cream

Whisk (A) till well mix
Add in (B) and continue to whisk on medium speed.
Add in whipping cream and mix throughly
Pour cheesecake batter onto baked fruit cake
Bake using bain marie method for 90mins
Once baked.. let it sit in ur oven for another hr bef taking it out and placing it in ur fridge.. once chilled u can take it out and slice it..

I dont know how to describe this cake.. to be honest i prefer the lapis cheesecake.. err probably bec i am a big fan of plain cheesecake.. this cake itself is rich in flavours.. rich in texture.. however i think if u add 1tbsp of melted chocolate into it this cake it will taste even better..

Oh one more thing bef i go.. ty to all that have place an order for my mastrad sheets.. will send it out as soon as hb is back in his office.. hes the one that handles all the postage..

Hi Rima,

Try to take more fresh fruit juice, hippo water (good for bringing down temperature - can get it from any pharmacy or watson store) then of course get a lot of rest and eat a lot of hot porridge.

Wish you guys a speedy recovery.
