Kek Batik/Marie Fudge Cake 沙捞越巴迪蛋糕

Have you heard of Kek Batik? It is very popular in my hometown here in Sarawak. It is a non-bake nor steam cake. It is a fudgy and nice cake with basic cake ingredients like butter, sugar, eggs but no flour. Milo, condensed milk and nestum is added to have more texture and flavor in this cake. The batik cake from my hometown normal will add another secret ingredient 'Gula Hitam' (browning sugar). The ingredient enhance the flavor and darker color of the cake.

Homemade Chinese Pork Jerky (Rou Gan) CNY Bake 2015 ~ 新年快乐, 洋洋得意!(自制肉干)

Happy Chap Goh Mei to dear All! Hope that you have been having a wonderful and auspicious celebration. My kids are having a holiday for today and will be resume back to school tomorrow. We are having a great time enjoying good time and good food with relatives and friends. How time files today the Lunar New Year will be over. This year i made my own 'Rou Gan'. 'Rou' in Chinese means meat and 'Gan' mean dried , then both words get together means dried meat or Dried BBQ meat . This is a super popular food in CNY and it is very addictive. My Oh my!! Look at this juicy Bak Kwa. 肉干自己DIY 今年想再来自制肉干。   去年有尝试做了,不过效果不是我喜欢的。   今年又再次挑战!很开心,效果很好呢!!谢谢这三位格友的分享。(Cheryl,Shannon和Sonia)三位的食谱都大同小异不过技巧各有千秋。Cheryl把Cognac加入,味道很香。   Shannon 的调料加了少许的食油让烤好的肉干不会太干。她也把调好的肉碎用擀面棍擀平,很方便厚度刚刚好。Sonia的简单调料和储藏技巧很棒。以上纯粹是个人的喜爱部分,可能您有您的看法。不过自己DIY的肉干可靠(你知道加了什么好料进去而不是防腐剂或添加剂什么的)又超好吃呢!!
