A colleague took a lift from me yesterday and just before she alighted at Bedok MRT, she said "Make a cake tonite and bring tomorrow, k". The amazing thing was, I was actually thinking of whipping up something .. call that Telepathy .. ehehe
I had thought of making somthing for each of my 2 female colleagues. Corn hoon kueh for Kak Su coz we ever talked abt this and Basic Brownies for Kak Bi coz she's a choc lover.
This Corn Hoon Kueh recipe is from my sister's home econ book .. hehe
1/2 cup hoon kueh flour (green pea flour)
2 1/2 cup thin cocunut milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 pandan leaf
A pinch of salt
Mix all the ingredients in a saucepan.
Cook over a slow flame stirring all the time until the mixture thickens.
Turn off flame and put mixture into little plastic containers.
I got this Basic Brownies recipe from Brownies, Fudges and Toppings published by Periplus.
150g butter, chopped
125g dark chocolate, chopped
1 1/2 cup caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup plain flour (i added a pinch of baking powder)
1/4 cup cocoa powder
icing sugar to dust
Preheat oven to 180C and grease a 20cm square tin.
Melt butter and choc then cool it.
Whisk egg, sugar and vanilla essence in a large bowl until combined.
Sift flour, baking powder and cocoa powder together.
Mix choc mixture into egg mixture then stir in the flour. Do not overmix.
Pour into the greased tin and bake for 40 mins.
Cut into squares when cool and dust with icing sugar.
