Red Velvet Cupcakes:

1 1/4 cups (125 grams) sifted cake flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoons (10 grams) regular or Dutch-processed cocoa powder
1/4 cup (57 grams) unsalted butter, at room temperature
3/4 cups (150 grams) granulated white sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup (120 ml) buttermilk  ** see note below this recipe
1 tablespoon liquid red food coloring
1/2 teaspoon white distilled vinegar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Cream Cheese Frosting:
8 ounces (227 grams) cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup (60 grams) confectioners' (icing or powdered) sugar, sifted
2/3 cup (160 ml) cold heavy whipping cream(double cream) (35-40% butterfat)
**Note: You can substitute buttermilk with Milk + few drops of lemon juice. Then the milk will curdle up or mcm likat sikit.

Red Velvet Cupcakes: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and line 12 muffin tins with paper cupcake liners.
-In a large bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder.
-In the bowl of your electric mixer, or with a hand mixer, beat the butter until soft (about 1-2 minutes). Add the sugar and beat until light and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes).
-Add the egg and beat until incorporated. Scrape downthe sides of the bowl.Add the vanilla extract and beat until combined.
-In a measuring cup whisk the buttermilk with the red food coloring. With the mixer on low speed, alternately add the flour mixture and buttermilk to the butter mixture, in three additions, beginning and ending with the flour.
In a small cup combine the vinegar and baking soda. Allow the mixture to fizz and then quickly fold into the cake batter. 

-Divide the batter evenly among the 12  muffin cups and smooth the tops with an offset spatula or the back of a spoon.Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 18 -23 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cupcakes comes out clean.
-Cool the cakes in their pans on a wire rack for 10 minutes and them remove from pan. Let cool completely before frosting. Either spread the frosting with a knife or offset spatula, or use a large 1M Wilton open star decorating tip to pipe the frosting.

Cream Cheese Frosting:In the bowl of your electric mixer, or with a hand mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the vanilla and confectioners sugar and beat until smooth. Using the whisk attachment, gradually add the heavy cream and whip until the frosting is thick enough to pipe. Add more sugar or cream as needed to get the right consistency.
Makes 12 cupcakes.

Roasted Chicken - my version

Lama sungguh tak blog.. BZ yang teramat..
Nampak sedap tak?


So for today , I would like to post my version of  Roasted Chicken
Actually I have been roasted chicken twice, hence there are two kind of roasted chicken.
But basically, sama je marinade yg digunakan..

Let's check it out. I

Roasted Chicken / Grilled Chicken / Ayam Bakar

-Ayam (i used half of the whole chicken)
-Garlic about 5 cloves, chopped (if tk suka, kurangkan k)
- Herbs ; Loads of fresh rosemary chopped, some coriander flakes (you can put your kinda herbs)
- Lemon juice - bout half of lemon or 5 tbsp 
- Lemon skin - agak2 jer, hiris2
- Onions (potong 4 or 6)
-Salt n sugar to taste (honey is better)
- potatoes (cut half)
- broccoli, carrot (any vege that u likes)

- Ayam bersih, pat2 with clean towel paper ( so that ayam tu tk berair2, and rempah2 mudah serap leih sedap)
- Add in garlic, herbs,lemon juice,lemon skin,Onions, salt n sugar, 
- Kacau rata ayam dan bahan2 lain..kalau boleh biarkan marinade overnight, if not 2 jam pun boleh.

- masuklah ayam, kentang dan carrot td dalam oven at temperature about 170C for about 50minutes, or until cook thoroughly
  (kalau ada function grill lg senang)
* If can, put the chicken on the potatoes, so that chicken punya lemak2 tu akan drop dan ayam lebih garing
- Finally, when the chicken is about 90% done, put the broccoli or peas.. Coz i dont like my veges to be overcooked.
- Voila, boleh laa serve dengan chilli sauce or black pepper sauce

My second version of roasted chicken

Lagi dan lagi gambar

See ya again

Salam Semua..byk gambar makanan yang tk upload lg, tu yg sampai 2 kali post in one day..
wpun gambarnya tk lah like most other food's bloggers yg lain2, yg sgt2 cantik gambarnya..well, at least this pictures will become my references later..

So stew daging ni actually cooked for my collegue from Malaysia..
Dia ni kurang sket ngan masakan Jepun, lagipun i asked him to bring a lot of food stocks for me, so i felt obligated to cook for him..

Tp mmg sdp laa mkn tambah2 pulak..
So lauk ni, mkn ngan nasi carrot..oh suka2 hati jer kan nk mkn ngan apa ..

So resepi tgk kat,

Tp biasa laa, i tambah2 mana yg patut, n kurangkan bahan yang tkder:
So cpy sebijik ni.

500gm daging lembu/kambing ~ bersihkan dan potong kiub
2 biji bawang besar ~ potong dadu
5 ulas bawang putih (chopped)
2 sudu pes bawang - (tk letak sbb mls nk buat, tk buat pun sedap)
1 batang lobak merah ~ potong dlm 1 inci
2 biji kentang ~ belah 4
2 helai daun bay (tk letak sbb tkder)
2 sudu tepung gandum
1 sudu kecil serbuk lada hitam (I put more than 1 tsp)
about 1-2 tbsp oyster sauce (ni tambah2 sendiri )
2-3 tbsp tomato sauce (ni pun tambah2 sendiri)
And some fresh chillis (tambah jugak,biasa laa gila pedas)
Garam dan gula
Sedikit daun bawang, sup dan bawang goreng ~ utk hiasan
Minyak untuk menumis
Air secukupnya.

Panaskan minyak didalam periuk tekanan(pressure cooker) atau periuk yg sesuai. Gaulkan daging bersama serbuk lada hitam dan gorengkan daging lebih kurang 10-15 minit atau daging keperangan. Kemudian angkat daging.
Tumiskan bawang putih, merah . Kemudian tepung gandum,oyster sauce, tomato sauce dan kacau rata.
Masukkan semula daging dan air secukupnya, kacau rata. Tutup periuk dan masak selama 1 1/2 hingga 2 jam(kalau menggunakan periuk tekanan, masak selama 20 minit).
Kemudian tambahkan kentang dan lobak. Tutup dan masak lagi selama 20minit atau sehingga sayuran empuk/lembut.
Perasakan dengan garam secukup rasa dan sedikit gula. Hidangkan dengan ditaburkan dgn bawang goreng, daun sup dan daun bawang.

So ni lah gambarnya.. nampak sedap tk?
