"Kuih Bakar"





With my colleagues, we went to visit an ex-office mate at her house when we got to know that she was scheduled for an operation to remove a cyst.


Whilst talking, we were served with 'kuih bakar' by her family member :


(google image).



I've had it before, and not really in favour of it...but that day I thought it was extra "umph" ~ (must be because I hadn't had my lunch - had take-away KFCs in the car, planned to have it in d office afterwards...hehehe).



No really, it was yummy and after the 3rd slice [ ~ visiting sick friend or what? :) ]
...I asked for d recipe..hahaha..


It sounded easy enough so a few days later, tried my hands in making it..


My first attempt was not too bad but its too sweet..so I tried again during the weekend, reducing the sugar.

mmm..much better :)


Supposed to bake it using something like this bakeware :





But couldn't find something similar (need to "overhaul" my store!..hehe),
so I used the cupcake's baking tray instead :






Took this photo while its still hot in the oven :





But by the time it has cooled down...





hehehe...





Not too bad.. I'm giving a slight pat on my own shoulder.

(perasan..hahaha)


Anyway today, just before I left the office for home, I was informed that the operation that was done this morning had been successful and she has now been transferred to a normal ward.


Alhamdulillah...praying for her speedy recovery...

  14. I love kuih bakar. Yes, most of the time, kalau beli kat pasar malam it is very sweet! So, adjustment to the sweetness would make a perfect dessert for me! Yummm!
