Count down to Pasta Making hour..

Ok, it's tomorrow lah but let's not get technical hehehhehee… Ive read Mr. Oliver's recipes, Ms. Lawsons too.. Nervous as heck! but u know my kids will just love the craziness of it all.. provided, the baby sleeps well tonight and josh too (he's still a bit under the weather).

I must also frantically find a simple bread and butter pudding recipe for sunday's Father's day treat… I've got lamb (****** expensive this lamb I tell you!), pumpkin, potatoes carrots.. I've got to make a dash to the market tomorrow for some broccoli etc and maybe some mint.. I dunno.. hmmm… NOt sure what marinade I'd do, I'll start marinating tomorrow… yum yum! Never blog or read recipe books when you are hungry I guess. HAHAHHAHA…

I should post up the recipe or some recipes huh? Here's one of Min's tried and true cake recipes:

Hot Milk Cake

By Min

4 eggs
2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups flour (sifted)
1/4 lb Oleo or butter
1 cup milk
2 level tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla

Beat eggs with sugar until light yellow. Add flour and vanilla, beating well. Pour milk into saucepan. Melt butter in milk, do not boil! Then pour hot milk mixture into the egg, sugar and flour mixture, beating well quickly. Add baking powder. Stir well and immediately pour into two 8×8 inch pans or one 9×12 inch pan. Put into hot oven (425F) preheat. Turn back to 350F for 30 min.

What the recipe doesn't say is to grease and flour the pan/s. Hehehe…
For a 9" round pan, I used 1/2 recipe for Adam's cake.

Mi Koo

By Karen Cheah



150g sugar

350ml warm water

4 tsp instant yeast

600g bread flour (I used plain flour, just to test out the recipe first)

1/8 tsp pink/red colouring

3 tbsp water



1. Combine the sugar and warm water and stir to dissolve the sugar. Mix in the yeast.

2. Add the yeast mixture to the flour and knead to form a smooth dough. Divide dough into 3 portions.

3. Mould the dough into an oval shape. Place on greaseproof baking paper. Leave to prove for 45 minutes.

4. Stir together the colouring and water to get a bright pink. Brush on the Mi Koo and steam covered for 20 minutes over high heat, opening the lid every 5 minutes. Set aside to cool before serving.
