A Time To Share

Our God is a God of Nations:
"He so love the WORLD ... He gave His one and only son..."

Jesus knows you well
Enough for Him to be aware of your every needs
Surely He cares, because He loves you abundantly
Unless you reject and deny Him
Swift is He to receive you with open arms

Come as you are
Answer His call, and open your hearts to Him
Rest in His arms and He will see you through
Ever so loving and kind is He
So, why are you still waiting?

are single serving biscuits or quick bread.

Guai Shu Shu introduced his Scones as
"Basic but presentable, 
Basic but irresistible raisin scones."

I like to call the scones he shared,
"Eggless Scones"

No 2 scones look the same, not to mention being beautifully shaped!
The rugged look tells you that the scones are well risen.

Notes to successful Scones baking:-
1) all ingredients need to be cold
2) the dough needs the minimum handling
3) if you add raisins or dried fruits, omit the sugar from the recipe

Eggless Scones
500g self raising flour, sifted with
2 tsp baking powder
50g sugar
1/4 tsp salt
100g cold butter, cubed & kept in fridge until required
300-350g cold milk

1) preheat oven to 210C
2) mix together all dry ingredients
3) rub the cold butter into the flour swiftly with your finger tips
4) add milk to combine the flour, do not pour in the milk all at once, but slowly.
5) when mostly combined, place dough on the table top & press to 1/2" height
6) cut into required shape (either smaller circle or a large circle & divide into wedges)
7) place on a lined baking sheet, brush the top with beaten egg or milk
8) bake for 20-min until golden brown

Coconut Cake

Coconut Cake 
is a simple but flavourful cake.

I have made it too thin 
so I cut it in half and stacked them up to get the height for photography.

After that, I cut it into small pieces to serve.
Those who tasted agreed with me that
it is the right way to serve, just a mouthful!

If you are curious of the taste, try it

Coconut Cake
60g butter
60g coconut milk
60g sugar
1 large egg
2 Tbsp shredded coconut
1/4 tsp salt
75g plain flour sifted with
1/2 tsp (scant) baking powder

1) cream butter & sugar until light & fluffy
2) beat in the egg & salt
3) add shredded coconut, mix well
4) fold in sifted flour 
5) pour into lined tin and bake @175'C for 35min

Pulut Panggang
is a favourite among both the 
Chinese Community and our Malay friends.

These are either made with sambal (spicy) or kunyit.

My late mom liked these non-spicy type
but they may be hard to come by
because the spicy ones are more popular.

My brother Richard started to plant bananas recently
I managed to get some banana leaves from his farm.
And, I was told that I must not use the leaves from pisang emas 
because it makes the kuih bitter!
Try, if you want to prove my friend wrong!
