Post iftar pics and Caramel Cake

2nd day of Ramadhan was a tiring one.. it started in the morning when i realised that my alarm didnt go off.. probably it did and my dear hubs must hv stopped it while half-asleep.. anyway we didnt hv our sahur this morning.. i woke up at half past six feeling all tired and sleepy.. sholat and went back to bed.. woke up again at 9am and decided to go and get some groceries done and guess what.. the duplex house that we went to view today was disappointing.. while it has all the brand new Bosch appliances such as oven and stove.. the kitchen was very very small.. i think its like half the size of my current kitchen! i like the white cabinet and the bomb shelter that was next to the kitchen.. the owner had just renovated the whole duplex and had put up a new wooden patio.. the rooms were small and it makes me feel like living in a bird cage.. oh well... the house hunting goes on and tmrw we are gonna view a landed property.. wish me luck in the kitchen department!

So ok.. here are the pics taken on the first day of iftar.. oh i also put up the caramel marble cake recipe which i had baked twice this week cos mom loved it!

Hehe.. kids... they grow too fast!!! i remember naming sis Wati's first born.. i later got to name 2 of her other girls AND u see that smile fm my first born.. well starting tmrw he will be officially called a "working man".. he landed himself a job with a French aviation co.. the line that my son fell in love with ever since he was 16yrs old.. well done my dear son.. mama will pray for ur success!

Busy preparing or talking?? hehehe while the kids were busy frying bagedel and paru.. moms gas went kaput.. thank goodness for her induction cooker!

Food glory!!.. when it comes to nasi rawon.. mom always makes sure she covers em all hehehe.. we had rendang, sambal goreng, sambal sotong, bagedel, paru, tempeh, fried chicken, salted eggs, sambal belacan, serondeng and not forgetting rawon gravy!

Dad and his 6th grandchild..

Their 7th and 8th grandchildren... Sonia fasted till 12pm yesterday.. today was much worse lol... the moment she woke up she had asked for her milk hahaha

... and now comes the caramel cake recipe that my mom loves.. I got the recipe fm Azlita and original recipe is fm Munira Baharum.. ty ladies for sharing such a simple and wonderful recipe.. just my hubs is being a bit sore and said "I think this recipe is not challenging".... whatever! - oh i doubled the caramel part and used 9x7 pan for this cake..

Caramalised sugar
2 tablespoons granulated sugar

Prepare the pan 8 inc.
Sprinkle sugar into the pan and cook over low heat.
Let the sugar dissolve and the color change.
Once melted.. u may want to spread the caramelized sugar evenly by moving ur pan right and left.
Let sugar cool.

1/2 cans of evaporated milk
70g castor sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
3 egg yolk

Stir milk and sugar until sugar dissolves - set aside
Stir eggs and vanilla in another bowl and slowly add it to ur milk/sugar mixture
Strain into a baking pan that has caramelised sugar in it.
Set aside.

Cake batter
70g caster sugar
3 egg yolk
135ml water
45ml of cooking oil

Whisk egg yolk, oil and water until smooth n fluffy.
Then add castor sugar and beat again until thick and creamy - ribbon stage.

140 gm flour
1 teaspoon baking powder

Turn off the mixer and fold in sifted flour and baking powder slowly..

6 pieces of egg whites
70g castor sugar
1 teaspoon cream of tar tar

Make sure all equipment is dry
Beat egg whites n cream of tar tar until frothy
Add sugar and continue to beat using high speed until batter is thick and soft peak.
Pour 1/3 of merinque into the yolk mixture.. fold in gently .. one mixed.. pour it back into ur meringue and continue to fold in carefully.
Divide batter into three parts.. colour em according to ur preference.. pour batter onto ur caramel.. (Pour 3 tablespoons purple layer, then 3 tablespoons pink layer in the middle layer of purple. Then pour about 3 tablespoons blue layer in the middle of the pink layer.
Do this until 3/4 mixture is left, and repeat same sequence by using 2 tablespoons only instead of 3.)
Once done steam bake (bain marie) ur cake using 160C for an hr.. use only bottom heat to bake.. I suggest to wrap the outside of ur pan with alu foil to prevent water seepage.. 
Once baked .. let ur cake stand in the oven till cake cools down..take it out and flip it onto a big plate. chill it bef u hv it!

Funny faces fm little Sonia!

Of all the foods being displayed, I notice something familiar ie the triangle currypuff just like the Bai roti used to sell back then. Coincidentally, a cousin of my hubby gave the frozen one to us when he went back to his hometown abt 2 wks ago. I hope I tak silap meneka, hehe..

Salam Ramadhan.....CS.
