Butter cake

Over the years.. I been searching high n low for a good butter cake recipe..
1 that is not too dense... not too soft like cotton...
My benchmark for nice butter cake.. was set when I was young.. Big aunt will always visit us with a box of sliced butter cake she buy from the near by bakery at her place. The cake is always soft n fragrant...

Anyway... I saw Florence baked this butter cake and I told myself I must try since her recipe always work well for me.
This recipe calls for Golden churn butter.. and well I supose its realy good since it makes the cake v moist haha not forgetting... the whip cream plays a big part in it too...

After 1 hour of mixing, baking, washing up.. my cake is ready!!

Butter Cake

It sure looks dense... But dun get fooled!! Its soft too!! Not forgetting sinful haha... its not too sweet.. could taste a little salt in it too which is great!
I gt too hungry I ate 2 slice at 1 go for my tea break... Im gg to giv half to Agnes later on.. while reserving the rest for BF tomolo as well as to let dear have a piece (or 2?).

I have some left over cream.. and I guess I be baking this again pretty soon!!!

Months ago we had our 1st encounter with Cereal Fried Rice at 1 of the restaurant at Vivo City.
Fragrant.. was the word to describe...
Oh yes.. expensive too! it barely filled my tummy.. or perhaps it was too yummy thats y....
Immediately we tot of DIY it at home...

Moons later.. finaly.... I did it!
Sloggish day for me today... after many chores.. finaly I got my butts down to do this for dinner

Not exactly the same as the one in restaurant I must say... but its still realy Yummy!
1 thing thou... I cooked it too early and left it till dinner time.. the cereal arent crispy any more..
*frown* but its still yummy hahahaaaaa im a glutton!!!!

Its similar to cooking cereal prawns I guess but the last time I cook cereal prawns was when I was still staying in KA LOL...

Anyway heres how I cooked it

Cereal Fried Rice


50g Butter (can be slightly more)
3 Egg yolk
Curry leaves
Chili padi
Salt n sugar to taste
Frozen mix vegetable
Crabstick, cubed
Nestle Cereal
Fish Sauce to taste

1. Melt butter in pan, add in egg yolk n fry till fragrant.
2. Add in curry leaves n chili padi n fry till fragrant.
3. Add in prawns, crabstick as well as frozen vege.
4. Add in Cereal n fry till fragrant n crispy. Be careful not to burn the cereal.
5. Add salt n sugar to taste...
6. Add in cooked rice and add a dash of fish sauce or 2 for some flavour...

Else the cereal will lose its crispiness!!
