Egg Custard Pudding

IMG_2885

Sometimes I just cannot take control of my craving to bake something, though it’s almost midnight. I don’t know it’s considered a passion or hunger ( hehehe ) for midnight sweettooth. But at the end, I put these all into the fridge and snack it for breakfast the next morning. It’s best eaten while cold. And oh, I put some fig jam on it. The taste was just amazing.

Simple ingredients :

3 eggs and 1 egg yolk

1 teaspoon vanilla

450ml whole cream ( I used full cream milk as it’s the only milk I have in the fridge )

60 gram caster sugar

Nutmeg to dust

METHODS :

Beat the eggs lightly , just well combine not until fluffy.

Heat the milk and sugar below boiling point

Add the milk into the eggs

Strain the batter through a sieve into ramekins , divide well into 6 ramekins

Sprinkle the top with nutmeg, put as much as you like as it will taste nice

Pour hot water 3/4 of the roasting pan, arrange the ramekins in the pan and bake for about 30-35 minutes. I always put the 190C heat for baking my cakes as that’s the highest heat of my oven.

Take out from the oven, let it cool before serving or have it cold in the next few hours after refrigerated. You may add fresh fruit or jam on it.

Greek Yogurt Cake

greek yoghurt cake5

When I got a cup of Greek yogurt from a friend, all I thought is making a delicious cake out of it. I found this recipe among some which looked easy and nice. It’s said this is a healthy cake but again, I am not that kind of person who puts too much concern on a cake being healthy or not, as long as I consume just enough, I think cakes or any food  are healthy. Well ?

Let’s see the Ingredients :

2 cup of all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup light olive oil

1 cup plain Greek yogurt

1 cup caster sugar

3  medium eggs

2 tablespoon of lemon juice and zest of one lemon

How to create the beautiful spongy and fluffy cake ;

Mix all the dry ingredients ( flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt ) in a bowl, put aside.

Whisk the olive oil and sugar till sugar melt and add the egg, one at a time. Whisk till well combine.

Then add yogurt and lemon juice and lemon zest into the egg batter.

Add the flour mixture into the egg batter , whisk just for a few seconds  to combine all the ingredients.

Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan. I used 16cm cake tin. Bake for about 45 minutes or after you get a clean inserted toothpick out of the cake.

Dust with powdered sugar . Have a slice with a hot cocoa or coffee. You would ask for more, trust me.

Into the Water

It is awesome to know that we have  many beautiful beaches , not only Bali . I am glad that I could spend three days seeing and swimming ( well, not actually swimming as most of the time I laid on my back and just feel the cold sea embraced me ) at some of the ones close by to where I live.

I think I am speechless and I have no idea what to write here besides showing the pictures and the name of the places. I hope I could get back here again soon even though it takes about 6 hours driving from Jakarta.

Ujung Genteng beach, Sukabumi – West Java

The beach in the morning . The beach is covered with coral reef and thin jellyfish and the tide is low so it's not too comfortable to swim unless you go beyond the rocks line on to the open south sea

Pangumbahan beach, a little heaven for surfer. This part of Ujung Genteng area is established as a green sea turtle conservation. But even it has been protected as the turtle nestling place, we couldn't see any turtles that day, only a few of hawksbill sea turtle in the pond.
