Cocoa Banana Oatmeal Muffin

So, I still crazy about muffin ... This recipe I got also from Mbak Vania blog .... & she got the recipe from Quaqer Oatmeal site ...

So far this the best recipe I've ever tried ... Dense, yet so moist & is not crumbly .... perfecto, just like muffins from the professional bakery ...

This time I'm not using any baking paper ... just a non stick muffin pan grease with margarine ...
The recipe is for 10-12 delicious medium size muffins .....

1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup Quaker® Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup baking cocoa
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2/3 cup mashed ripe bananas (about 2 small)
1/2 cup fat-free milk
5 tablespoons margarine or butter, melted
2 egg whites or 1 egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
Powdered sugar (optional)
I add a hand full of chocolate chip on the batter & topping

Heat oven to 180°C.
In large bowl, combine flour, oats, granulated sugar, cocoa, baking powder and baking soda; mix well. In medium bowl, combine bananas, milk, margarine, egg whites and vanilla; blend well. Add to dry ingredients all at once; stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. (Do not overmix.)
Fill muffin cups almost full. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool muffins in pan on wire rack 5 minutes. Remove from pan. Cool completely.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired. Store tightly covered.

I promise you ... you will not taste any oatmeal on this muffin .... !!!

Hope PLN will finish their business In the time soon ....

Cake Tape

Old fashion .... classic ... old school .... this cake is refferring to those kind of word ... Nowadays not much people, especially youngster will like this cake ....

But for me, this cake is the taste of home .... It's both my parent favorite cake .....

Recipe :
8 Eggs
1/2 table spoon of emulsifier
200 gram sugar
200 gram cake flour
200 gram margarine melted / 200 cc tick coconut milk
400 gram tape singkong blend with 5 table spoon of fresh milk
50 gram raisin for topping

Preheat oven at 170C

(3) Add flour, make it in 3 batches, fold with spatula.
(4) Add melted margarine.
(6) Pour batter to a tulban pan, 26cm in diameter.

Measuring tools ....

Your baking success will need this kind of tools .... there's so many kind of them with different price depends on the material & precision .....

This below stainless steel measuring spoon cost about 30 thousand rupiahs, with only 4 spoon available ...

But this plastic measuring cup & spoon only cost about 10 thousand rupiahs ...

But if you don't have it, just use whatever available in your kitchen ... for example use tea spoon for 5 cc measurement or a table spoon for 15 cc measurement ....

Paper Cup

There's so many kind of paper cup available in market nowadays ... choose the one you like .....

My favorite would be the burbery .... aren't they cute?! ... but it's quiet expensive, it cost about 800 rupiah each ... the classic paper cup only cost 1700 rupiah for 50s .... but here in Jakarta the most popular must be the "momma" becoz it's perfect for cup cake ...

Pandan Cheese Butter Cake

I was browsing around for muffin recipe when I found the Filipino Butter Cake recipe. I saw the recipe on aunty Yochana’s blog & amazed by the texture of the cake shown on the picture …. I was thinking, this cake must be so moist … so I decided to give it a shot …

Coz I didn’t like plain vanilla cake, I added a pandan pasta & small cubed cheddar cheese, chocochip & Chocochip for topping. I also modified the recipe a little bit coz I didn’t have some ingredient, the measurement is too exact for me, & the method is the way I make a butter cake ….

This is the real recipe: Aunty Yochana's Filiphino Butter Cake

This is my modification:
260 gram. Cake flour
8 gram. Baking Powder (double acting)
140 gram Margarine
225 gram Sugar
140 gram Eggs
150 cc evaporated milk
50 cc water
2 drop of pandan pasta
100 gram cheddar cheese, cut into small cube
50 gram chocochip for the batter
10 gram chocochip for the topping


(1) Sift flour and baking powder together. Set aside.
(2) Cream margarine & sugar and milk powder together until creamy and fluffy
(2) Add eggs in 3 stages by turns with a table spoon of flour each time and continue creaming after each addition.
(3) Pour all the flour, continue mixing.
(4) Pour the water & milk in 3 stages. Continue mixing
(5) Add in the cubed cheese & chocochip, mix with a spatula
(6) Pour batter into loaf pan, sprinkle with grated cheddar cheese
(7) Bake at 180C for about 50 mins. or till cooked.
(8) Test cake with a skewer and if if it comes out dry, it's done.
(6) Cool on cooling rack and slice when completely cooled.

As expected the cake is delicious & moist …. I love it so much ……
& really, I don't bother the crack ....
