السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُه
Good Day
For couple of weeks since d schools started, I was pre-occupied with kids schedules and activities.
Due to severe lack of dessert in the house, my daughters decided to bake this RED VELVET CAKE.
 In short, they are amazing. Very red & chocolaty yet so creamy & buttery, the cake will thwart even the most determined dieter. 
Although it is not everybody's cup of tea.. but most of cake lovers out there will like it very much because.. 
..well it is RED VELVET..
It would be hard to resist this kind of chocolaty red velvet goodness. 
up-close & personal
Baking your own at home is like a big fulfillment. 
My daughters gave me a big grin for baking  the cake successfully.
 Now I think they found their passion already.

However, despite their angelic perfection, these treats are quite simple to make! For my teen daughter, it took them about 30 - 50 minutes of preparation time. 
You will not regret making this red velvet cake, so go ahead.. (WARNING – Bake at your own risk, you’ll probably eat them all.)

As usual, my best red velvet's recipe is sourced from - Glorious Treats 
copy & paste from Glorious Treats
2 1/4 cups cake flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa (not Dutch process)
1  teaspoons salt
1 1/3 cups oil
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
4 Tablespoons liquid red food coloring (or 1 tablespoons concentrated food coloring)
1 teaspoons vanilla
3/4 cup buttermilk (my girls made buttermilk with HL milk + 1 tbs *vinegar)
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons *vinegar
*normal cooking vinegar

1.  Preheat oven to 170C.  Prepare cupcake pan with liners, or butter and flour cake pans and line bottoms with parchment.
2.  In a large bowl whisk cake flour, cocoa and salt, and set aside.
3.  In the bowl of an electric mixer (fitted with the whisk attachment), beat oil and sugar until well blended.  Add eggs one at a time, and continue beating.  Add food coloring and vanilla and mix well.
4.  Add flour and buttermilk alternately, in two batches.  Scrap down the sides of the bowl as needed.  Mix just enough to combine.
5.  Place baking soda in a bowl or cup, add vinegar and stir (it will foam and expand).  Add to cake batter and beat for 10 seconds.
6.  Fill cupcake liners 2/3-3/4 full, or divide batter between cake pans.  Bake cupcakes 20-24 minutes.  Bake cake layers 25-40 minutes depending on the size of the pans.

This recipe will yield about 24 cupcakes, 3- 8" cake layers, or 2- 9" cake layers.
(My girls used d 8" x 8" baking tray)Cream Cheese Frosting
½ cup (1 stick/8 Tablespoons) butter (set at room temp about 10 minutes, but should still be cool)
8 oz. cream cheese (directly from fridge)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (always use pure vanilla extract if possible)
4 cups powdered confectioners sugar
1 to 2 Tablespoons heavy cream, heavy whipping cream (or milk- although I do like the richness that cream adds)
1.  Place butter in a large mixing bowl and beat until smooth. Add cream cheese and blend until fully combined, about 30 seconds.
2.  Add vanilla extract and powdered sugar (one cup at a time) while mixing.  Increase to medium speed and beat until it begins to get fluffy.
3.  Slowly add the heavy cream, a little bit at a time until desired consistency is met. (Don't add too much if you want the frosting to stay in place when piped on cupcakes.)
4.  Beat until fluffy, about 1 minute.
5.  Frost cake or cupcakes.

Good Day
Pisang emas di bawa belayar
Masak sebiji di atas peti
Hutang emas boleh dibayar
Hutang budi dibawa mati
Patutlah payah amat nak mencari pisang emas..habis semua di bawa belayar.. kalau ada yang masak pun, cuma sebiji aje ya.
from google - Pisang Emas
ogyep dapat membeli pisang emas yang fresh & cantik di Pasar Pagi di Kundang, Selangor.
Last weekend, kami repeat sarapan pagi di Kedai Makan Kundang Pak Sharif Roti Canai
Lepas tu kami jalan2 ke pasarnya..
Pasar Kampung.. 
Kalau-kalau teringn nak mencari sayur-sayuran kampung, kuih-muih tradisional, pelbagai jenis buah-buahan kampung & juga pelbagai jenis pisang, bolehlah singgah di Pasar Kundang ni..
Harganya, boleh tahan murah juga kalau dibanding dengan harga di bandar.
Barangan jualan pun segar-segar belaka..
I have some left over pisang emas.. 
Therefore, I decided to bake banana cake. I google about for a different recipe of banana cake.. 
I found one from Dapurku Sayang, d owner is DayangJack.

السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُه
Good Day
Aduhai.. dah Jumaat dah.. sekejap aje waktu berlalu..
Today is 4th January 2013 already.
As the school season starts again and each one of the children faces it with different emotions.
This week parents dah mula la kelam-kabut semula dengan jadual persekolahan anak-anak.
Same goes to me, this year all my 6 kids, age range from 5 - 16 years old, are going to school. 
And in the blink of eyes I m very happy about savoring every stage of the journey with my kids. 

before going to school.. pre-occupied with his iPad..
My youngest boy, Muhamad Syafiq Haris is 5 years old. 
Yesterday, 3rd January 2013, I took him to his first day of preschool. 

How did this day arrive so quickly? 
One minute he was my tiny little bundle in my arms, then he turned 1.. 2.. 3.. 4 & now he is 5 years old..and now he has started his preschool.
anak mama dah besar dah..
Something that I do not want to miss in my life..
Watching my little boy walk up the steps of the school on his first day.. with his hair neatly combed and proudly lugging his new school bag. 
You guys better enjoy this time, because.. before you know it, they grow up and they’re gone!
Seems like yesterday he was a newborn..
I always knew his first day would be different to him. 
He is a far more confident and independent little boy outside.. BUT quite soft & mild inside..
Apa kata orang tu.. Dalam hati ada taman... hahaha
 So it didn’t surprise me that he cried when I left him but it didn’t last long. 
I rang his school 30 minutes after I left d school,  Teacher Christine told me that he had stopped crying but refused to join the crowds.
He is still a very bright and happy little boy but he is very much a Mama’s boy and I feel he needs the chance to socialize and find his feet without having his Mama to stand behind him.
When I fetched him today, he ran to me for a big cuddle. Once in d car, he showed me his first colouring @ school. 
his first colouring sheet @ school.. dapat 1 bintang aje..
On the journey home, he told me that he had done some playing and some drawing but he did not eat anything during d break cos he was full. 
(No doubt, I made him eat a plate of Nasi Goreng for breakfast this morning.)
 He seemed very happy, so I hope this will be the start of a happy new phase for him. 
Semoga anak2 kita membesar menjadi anak2 yang soleh & solehah..
In Shaa Allah.... AMINN..
