Pai Thong Koh

Most pai Thong Koh recipe are tedious... some take as much as 3 days jsu to make the mixture... saw this and did it.. not too bad... so Im Posting this very easy Pak Thong Go recipe I extracted off the web some time ago. I modify it a little. Anyway its a simple recipe..but not easy to get that holey stuff.. Happy trying

PArt a)

175g sieved rice flour
140g sugar
360ml water

Part b)
1 tsp instant yeast
1 tbsp warm water

1. Mix (B) and leave aside till foamy (about 10 mins).
2. Mix (A) well and cook over slow heat (About 5 minutes) Keep stirring otherwise the mixture will get burnt and have sago pearls forming). Sieve this mixture into a big mixing bowl and cooled it.
3. Mix (part 1) and (part 2) together and mixwell. Cover the mixture and prove in a warm place for 1 1/2hours. When bubbles appear all over the surface then it is ready for steaming. Do not over fermet as it will result in sourish taste.
4. Pour the ready batter into a square greased pan (about 10inch)and steam for 20 minutes.
5. Cut into triangle pieces when cool.

Note* if u want the very authentic kind, I guess u can onli try ur hands on the complicated ones... but not worth the effort since its easily available in the market. I hope I go tthe guts to try those 3 days fermentation one...

Pai Thong Go

This is my all time favourites.. sicne I was young.. I remember my sisters and I can eat loads at 1 go.. and it cost almsot like 70cent per piece.. freaking ex...

I remember the 1st time I attempted this, was when I was in Sweden..craving badly. and the flour cost a bomb.. and yetI failed... Just now as I was telling dear im doing this over the phone.. he said: Can do one meh? haha that why i bet Dear cant remember I attempted that in karlskrona haha... I never tried it again there as I cant bear to part with my porecious flour for more failure.

well here it is

the texture is not fantastic still,but better than alst itme lar haha..a nd no sourish taste.. some shops the sell this taste sour as they over ferment the mixture.

I will let Kelvin try this since Im meeting him for dinner and and ask him for opinion.. =)
Im so happy.......

Xmas Glogg

I never heard of glogg until 4 years ago.. of cos 4 yr ago.. I was in Sweden. They have many kind of gloggs.. from glogg for children(non alcoholic) to those with high alcohol content. It taste like wine... can be white wine or red wine used to make glogg. Many glogg have spices like cinnamon, nutmeg added to it.. oh ya.. raisins too. Its normaly heat up by the glogg holder and drink with a sprinkle of cinnamon powder on top... drank on the cold xmas night. In supermart, there will be people letting us sample various glogg... In Singapore, the only place you can find glogg is probably Ikea? Its a either like it or not kind of drink.

At the crystal factory, we even bought a glogg holder. Thinking come back here we can do it ourselves. Here is our glogg holder

A green one for the xmas season.
But too bad.. past 2 xmas i been too lazy to make any.. so it been sitting lonely in the cupboard... even ready glogg off the shelf of Ikea have not motivated me.. I hope this year I wil since we got a car now..easier to go Ikea and its only 5 mins away fr my house.

My Swedish friend Elisabeth kindly shared few of her glogg recipes with me.. I certainly hope I can do it soon =)
Glogg made of whitewine
1 bottle of whitevine (choose a sort thats demi-sec)
4 dl of water
juice and cest of one orange
juice and cest of one lemon
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
1/2- 1 dl of rum
Mix everything into a saucepan. Leave it for at least one hour. Heat the glogg Carefully. Dont let it boil! Add the rum. Serve with raisins and almonds.
Non-Alcoholic Glogg
5 dl of black curant juice
5 dl apple juice
2 pieces of cinnamon
5 cloves
1 piece of ginger
cest of sevilla orange (bitter sour)
Mix everything into a saucepan. Bring it to boil .Serve steaming with raisins and almonds.
Childrens Glogg (made of milk)
1 liter milk
3 dl sugar
2 tablespoons of cocoa powder
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of cardamom
1/4 teaspoon of cloves
Mix everything into a saucepan. Bring it to boil while stiring. Serve steaming with raisins and almonds.
So lets hope I got some determination for this drink for the upcoming festive season... even home alone with dear also must make hehe...

And who is this cake for??
Its Dear's Birthday! so its for him of cos!
Cut the cake just now with our family... this is the cross section view
Very good review bout htis cake.. even my mum who dun take green tea like this.. and people who dont like red bean love this too. not sweet.. I think the green tea powder as topping helps in balancing the sweetness.

Mango Mousse Logcake

For my polymate gathering tomorrow.. I did a chocolate swiss roll with Mango mousse filling...

And since im afraid of the sickenign feeling of too much cream on my cake.. I turn the cream to Mango Mousse as well for the frosting...

Purposely made a choclate sponge with white frosting.. since log are brown..while snow are white.. so at least still can see 'traces' of log amist the snow..
Well, no Santa, no reindeer and no epressie yet.. since Santa and company is still busy up north in Lappland.. wrapping pressie for all the wonderful kids...
