Well, I'll sure to have lots of funs with family and friends tomorrow. Will be going out for dinner, karaoke then countdown for the year of 2011...and of course there'll be fireworks and streetdance here..WOOO!!!
Let's see now...here's a cake that brings a little meaning to the end of the year...a fruit cake ~ I find that it's suitable for my last post in year 2010, and quite meaningful. Don't you think? I'll like to have a fruitful year ahead..lol!
Freshly baked yesterday and tightly wrapped in my fridge before I give it a try this morning...yummy! A recipe from my mother who did it every year without fail for us during Chinese New Year. Guess now its my turn to bake for her...:)
180g brown sugar
5 medium eggs
500g mixed fruits (soaked in 5-6 tbsps of brandy for at least 2 days)
1 tbsp golden syrup
1 tbsp orange juice
3/4 tsp mixed spice
~ Cream butter and sugar till light and creamy, gradually add in eggs.
~ Fold in flour and mixed spice, then follow by orange juice and golden syrup.
~ Lastly fold in the drained mixed fruits and mix well.
~ Pour into a tray line with parchement paper. ( I used 3 trays~2.5"x6.5")
~ Level the top and bake at 160'C for at least 50 mins to 1 hour.
~ Shower with some extra brandy on the cake once done and wrap with aluminium foil immediately. Let cool and chill for 1 day before serving.
** Cake taste better after 1 or 2 days.
