♥...Friday Food Review ~ Apam Pisang Coklat (Steamed Banana Choc Appam/Muffin)...♥

Image
Blessed Friday To U...

It's time for Friday Food Review with love2cook again...

Alright for this week's review, I'll take U a ride to Osaka, Japan! It's none other than to JintanManis.com by our dear friend Ros...

A mom of three, Ros always has impressed us with her baking skills. She bakes her own breads and buns. Her cakes and Malaysian dishes will make U salivate for sure! She also randomly shares some Japanese cuisines too! Great na...

So today, I'm gonna post on her recent Apam Pisang Coklat (Steamed Banana Choc Appam/Muffin). A savoury steamed type muffin I would say. The combination of mashed banana and cocoa will make U go ga-ga and ask for more and more...seriously! I've made them twice already...hehe!

Well, the original recipe has got egg in it...but I substituted with plain yogurt during my first attempt. It was so moisty...really yummy!

Then, I followed the recipe by adding egg in my second attempt. Still good! Ooooh la la!

Check-out the recipe..

Blessed Friday to All..
I'd always love to experiment recipes from fellow bloggers, cookbooks and food websites. I did try and posted many here before. Right now, I'm in the midst of clearing my looooooooooooong bookmark list. Deleted a few, plenty to try on...
Came the idea of making a weekly post specially for tried and tested recipes. Thus, Friday Food Review begins from today! I shall be highlighting each and every recipe which doesn't belong to me but has been tried in my very own kitchen with U every Friday...so stay tuned!
As an opening dish and a kick-start for the event...I shall start with a dessert, Bread Pudding & Custard Sauce. After drooled over at Kak Hana's blog, I went to my kitchen straightaway to check on the ingredients. Having all items in stock, I started preparing the yummylicious pudding! Seriously, I was never a fan of bread pudding (Kak Hana knew this very well...kan kak??? hahaha! teringat zaman kanak2 kat MyR!)
This recipe …

Hehehe, U must be wondering what the title is all about!

Okey, lemme first announce that my darling Hubby will be leaving his vessel from Macae today. By the time he leaves, it'll be almost dark in Malaysia. Haishhhh...
After a long flight, he'll reach KLIA Malaysia on Saturday noon. We've planned to receive him at the airport this time. I did that long time ago with Rishie. Now, it's time to take along both Rishie and Ashika and see their Papa's arrival. Phew, wish me luck with her! Haha...
Now, moving on with Foodie Blogroll. I was so excited this morning when I saw an e-mail from FB saying my blog is listed in their Featured Blogs of the week! WOW, great news na! Actually I hardly open my mails, otherwise I would have known this much earlier. It's okey, luckily I could grab a screen capture and saved it to my folder.

Foodista...Well I've been posting selective recipes from my blog to Foodista whenever I'm online. It's really interesting to see lots …

Hello, good morning friends!!!
First of all I would like to thank all the good-hearts out there for wishing me and my Hubby on our 7th Anniversary yesterday. I was so happy to see 56 comments under my post and also at my shoutbox, nothing but wishes wishes and wishes! Heartiest Thank You to all U!
For those who missed the post...see entry before this or click HERE.
Okey, coming to my today's post title...I did not prepare any Nasi Lemak Bungkus but I wanted to share something about it. This is merely like promoting the Nasi Lemak Bungkus, be'coz we just loved the taste. Usually Nasi Lemak Bungkus is wrapped much earlier using banana leaf. The aroma of the banana leaf will give magic to the content! The amount of rice is little just enough for a light breakfast. It's also sold at cheaper price. Other condiments besides the coconut rice, would be some anchovies sambal, egg slice, fried anchovies and some cucumbers.


Now where do I buy these Nasi Lemak Bungkus??? After trying …

An auspicious day in my life. This day, in 2003...WE got united through an eternal wedlock ceremony, witnessed by family and friends. I can still remember every bit of happiness and excitement I felt throughout the engagement, wedding and reception process at this very moment.

Such a memorable day...
As the gift for our never-ending love...God has sent us, Rishie and Ashika. They are our souls, they mean what life is to us. We feel complete with their presence and could never ask for more! We love you dearies...life is impossible without U both!

Dear Hubby, I love U so much Chelo...missing U on this day...be back on Saturday! Thank U so much for the beautiful life U've given and still giving...
