"Lives too short for that" friend used to tell me..:=) Okay, here i come again.....back to the kitchen and start baking...:)
Already have some recipe planned for this week.....this is the 1st...;p

A very nice recipe from my new book,..actually bought this book quite sometime ago, but never have the time to try it. Why? Read on and you'll know why..;)

  5. Hello! This cake looks soooo good. I want to make it for my grandfather who loves malaikoh!
    I've tried such recipes which involve using an yeasted dough which requires proofing time, however i wasn't able to incorporate the stringy dough into the egg mixture. Is the yeasted dough really meant to be so lumpy? Do I really need to strain the mixture? What should the consistency of the mixture be like after mixing the eggs in?
    I'd really appreciate your kind advice. Thank you so much in advance!

  6. Hi hol-nylirehs,
    Yee, the yeasted dough is lumpy and also sticky. After adding the eggs the texture is slightly watery than before, but after adding the flour and oil it becomes thick again. Its alright after the 12 hours proofing for the 2nd time. Hope you'll succeed...Cheers!
