What equipment do you need to bake a cake?

Baking a cake is an art. It requires precision and the right skill to have the right taste incorporated in cake. However, there are some common baking tools that one need to bake cakes, pies, cookies and much more.

It is imperative to invest in high quality products in order to bake a tasty cake. Even if it would cost a little more, the end result is worth it. Nevertheless, here are the essentials that every baker needs:

Measuring cups and spoons

In order to measure dry and wet ingredients, it is necessary to have measuring cups and spoons. Also purchase glass measuring cups to calculate the amount of liquids. Baking measurements must be accurate to have the perfect taste. These products are relatively inexpensive.

Mixing bowls

A mixing bowl is needed to mix all the ingredients properly. Several mixing bowls are used at once while baking a cake. More than one bowl is needed since the ingredients are mixed in one bowl and dried in another. It would also help to mix other toppings.

Wire whisk

A wire whisk is absolutely needed to efficiently stir the sauces. This a mandatory equipment to mix dry and wet ingredients thoroughly.

Baking pan set

It is not possible to bake without bakeware. Baking pans like pie plates, cake pans, baking sheets and loaf pans are necessary for baking.

Rubber spatula

In order to remove cake batter from the bowl, you need to have a spoon-shaped rubber spatula. It even scrapes the edges to take out every last bit of it. It comes in different sizes so you can choose according to the preferences.

Cooling racks

It is important to have a large cooling rack to hold 2 cake layers and 2 smaller racks. Cooling racks that are stackable are also available in the market which can be folded down to store it easily.

Knives

Every kitchen is in a need of good set of knives. A serrated knife is something that is required in the entire baking process. It can be used to cut the cake horizontally. Getting a good quality knife would assist you in a number of processes.

Timer

It is pretty much difficult to bake something if you do not know for how long it has been cooking. If your oven doesn’t have a timer than purchase it separately. Many chefs and bakers have external timer in order to make the whole process more accurate and precise. Baking it for the right time makes will get the best possible taste.

Oven mitts

Oven mitts are necessary to ensure that your hands are completely safe in this entire process. One can even purchase a pot holder but many people tend to burn their hands with this product. Over mitts are great to handle high-temperature dishes. It is even ideal for children who are learning to bake since it can completely protect the hands.

How to cook the best steak in the world?

If you aiming to cook a tender and juicy steak, do not be fooled to spend a great deal of fortune. There is no need to get all expensive ingredients and equipment to get the right taste. Just following some of the industry secrets can get out the perfect flavor.

Chefs and experts know about meat inside out. Even though cooking the right steak may not seem easy for the first time, it tends to get simpler with practice. Nevertheless, here are five expert tips to cook the perfect steak every time:

The right cut

Thicker meat is better when it comes to cooking red meat. The perfect steak is toasted outside and rare in the center, which is a lot easier to do with thicket steaks. Experts have suggested that when cooking a steak at home, buy a thicker one and split it up. It is even difficult to go wrong with a thicker steak. Nevertheless, buy the best meat you find in the shop but make sure it is thick.

The right meat

These days we have a range of price when buying domestic beef. Consumers often come across only three grades of meat but there are actually eleven of them. If money is not an issue, then it is advisable to go for ‘Prime’ beef. Go for the beef that is ideally dry aged and naturally raised. 10% of the meat weight is evaporated by dry aging leaving more concentrated rich meat flavor behind.

High heat

Steak can be cooked in different styles, from charcoal grills to gas and oven broilers to frying pans. Irrespective of the method you choose, it is important to go really hot. Some commercial broilers can go up to 800 degrees which is not possible at home. The best home-tip is to use old-fashioned iron pans which retain heat better than the newer materials. Fairly high temperatures can be attained through outdoor grills as well.

Over-season

Using less salt is the worst thing that can be done with a steak. Many experts have suggested to over-season the steak. Coat the outside aggressively with seasoning of choice from pepper to basic salt. This helps to create a toasted crust. A good quality red meat will able to stand a lot of seasoning and get a taste that everyone wants. Furthermore, if you already have thick meat, then it is imperative to season the meat more in order for the seasoning to reach every bit of the meat.

Let it rest

Many home cooks are unaware of the fact that letting the steak rest for 10 minutes between cooking and serving improves its flavor and taste several notches higher. Resting the steak for over 10 minutes cools the exterior and draws the juices more evenly through the steak. Most cooks are worried about the plate going cold and tends to serve it immediately which is wrong when it comes to steaks. Serving it ten minutes later would give it the perfect taste.

Comeback Update: Passion fruit Cake and Lemon Tart

Hey everyone, I’m back. So sorry that I have been neglecting this blog for such a long time. Really didn’t get to try out good food in Melbourne, that’s why no reviews to write. So sad TT

Now, I will TRY to update every week because my hostel is giving us FORMAL HALL DINNER every Wednesday, which is the only day with super duper good food LOL

In the meantime, I am sharing some of my favourite desserts which are being served in my hostel during dinner, occasionally.

Passion fruit cake 😀

I always chose passion fruit over blueberry and strawberry, that’s why I only have this photo. OOPS :/

Lemon tart

Sometimes me and my friends would pack this for next day’s breakfast. Feel so blissful eating this early in the morning especially taken right from the fridge~awww…

Such guilty indulgence for me!

I am on a diet right now TT Planning to slim down by 1 inch on my waist and all these desserts and meals are always seducing me, OMG! Slimming down is such a challenging task for me :S

**By the way, I started another blog to for me to blog about my personal life and it acts as a place for me to put all my thoughts and rants. Because this is purely a foodie blog, I think it’s better to not have things jumbled up, right?

My personal blog is called Intuition-MagicDrag. This is the screenshot of it. And the link to it is here ^^ Feel free to visit 😀 and don’t forget to drop me a comment as well IF you feel like it.

Join me on Intuition-MagicDrag’s Facebook page as well 😀

I have instragram too ^^ Username is MJandOri4eva

I PROMISE TO UPDATE MORE FREQUENTLY HERE from now onwards okay?? PLEASE keep checking 🙂 I thank every single of you for never stop visiting even though I had been abandoning the blog for such a bloody long time.

Love you all so much xoxo THANK YOU!

Pineapple upside down!

Hey guys, I haven’t been blogging for a long time already. There’s something that I wanna update you: I am currently living in Melbourne on my own. Yes….a thousand miles away from home, all on my own, just for the sake of studying. I’m now studying at Trinity College, drop by and say hi if you happen to see me walking around in the sun, trying my best to walk under the shades and carrying a bunch of books, or even struggling to deal with my stupid umbrella which is hard to open in the wind (plus, I suck at keeping my umbrella under control when the wind’s strong)….so if you happen to bump into someone with those “characteristics”., most likely it would be me

Alright, end of my nonsense! I wanna clarify something: staying in a students’ hostel, we don’t have good food to eat. Of cos it’s impossible to find char koay teow, hokkien mee and my favorite wan ton mee and roti canai here. Maybe these dishes can be found in the city but apparently the prices are enough to make your jaw drop till your knees :p

Right now my mom’s having her vacation in Melbourne and also for visiting me and bringing me my daily supplies from Malaysia. I’m not going to return to my hostel today, instead I’m staying at her friends’ house at Port Melbourne AND I am now blogging at the dining table because I am eating this so so so so delicious home made pineapple upside down cake! That’s why I MUST blog instantly! 🙂

Funny name for the cake! Bear in mind, it’s NOT me who made this, this is made by the super talented aunty 😀 wonderful dessert after a tempting meal! Nice thursday night! ><

The Sire Museum Restaurant @ King Street, Georgetown

Last Saturday was my mom’s best friend’s birthday. She and the others planned to give a surprise for her at Ferringhi Garden (at Batu Ferringhi), but due to the serious traffic jam, which I heard was about 2 hours jam just to get to Batu Ferringhi, they called off the plan. However, they switched the venue to The Sire Museum Restaurant, which has the same owner as Ferringhi Garden.

The Sire restaurant was previously the home of a prominent businessman and philanthropist named Yeap Chor Ee who was born in Fujian, China in 1867. He came to Penang at a mere age of 17 in the 1890s, virtually penniless and later on emerged as the richest man in Penang. Over a course of 30 years, he built an empire with real banking, real estate and commodities trading activities. And he also founded the Ban Hin Lee Bank and many other companies. With his massive fortune, he became a philanthropist who contributed in the education field. His elegant mansion “Homestead” located at No.54 Northam Road was donated to the Wawasan
Education Foundation in 2006. He passed away in 1952 at the age of 85 and was known as the Grand Old Man of Penang, well known for his courtesy, generosity and integrity.

This is the photo of Yeap Chor Ee which I downloaded from Google Images 🙂

This is the dining part. And there’s a small dining area at the 2nd level as well, but the tables are rather small. So for big groups, like us, haha…definitely we had to sit at the ground floor. Amazing isn’t it? Can you believe this is actually a house? In the olden days, the houses were much much much larger than our current ones as many of them lived with their own families, which include their great grandmother and grandmother and many more. Unlike our modern era, most homes consist only parents and kids :/ Oh yeah, of course this house had been renovated before it established as a restaurant, just saying, because it’s funny to imagine people in the earlier days have this kind of house :p

I loved the spiral staircases, and this fountain part, so exquisite!

Tiny me in the mirror…….

Alright, let’s head upstairs!

A small art gallery on the 2nd floor which displays many perfectly shot photos around the house.

I think this might be the actual dining room where Yeap Chor Ee and his family used to dine in. Really grand isn’t it? Just take a look at the furniture….all with amazing carvings. What do we modern people have in our homes?! Ikea table and chairs…LOL~! Look at the dragon carved on the wood…it’s perfect!

Not everyday you get to have a chance to camwhore in an antique mirror, am I right?! Haha…nevermind me. Just being plain random. That’s my outfit of the day 🙂

This is the 3rd floor of the house. Probably a resting area. I was being freaked out by the buddha statue there once I crept upstairs alone…I admit, I’m a coward, but it’s quite eerie to go to the 3rd floor on your own whereas everyone was at the ground floor.

Collection of antiques. How wealthy was the family in the past?! Nearly every corner of the house has at least 1 antique. Salute and applause!
ps: I couldn’t take a picture of every single piece of antique there…there were too many of them. Sorry~

My personal favourite among all the antiques. If next time I were to have a huge mansion, surely I will put one in my living room :p hehehe!

This honey bear was a gift to the Yeap family by Tun Tan Cheng Lock (a famous local politician, whom I used to read about a lot in my high school History textbooks) who’s a close family friend. It is said that Tun Tan Cheng Lock had the similar honey bear in his home in Malacca as well.

Even the fan’s an antique, but it wasn’t on as the whole museum has air conditioners.

Mom asking me to get back to the dining table. She was in a rather weird pose with a funny expression, and I called out “You are so gonna go up my blog, mom!” Surprisingly, she was totally alright with that…Rare case for a mom, cause aren’t all moms preventing their kids from uploading stuffs onto the net publicly :S

Camwhoring with my mom and her friend, and her friend’s son while waiting for the meal to be served. I was dead hungry at that time x) ps: The one on my right is my mom, pretty huh?!? 😀

I was very fond of their table set up. So neat and clean and also…high class ^^

*Sigh* The lighting of The Sire restaurant was too dim for close up photographing. This is the result. Dull and boring…Even the food doesn’t LOOK good…

Thankfully, ever since I discovered the benefit of using my cellphone’s camera light in Sushi Kitchen, I begin to love my phone more than I used to. The photos below were taken by my Canon Ixus camera with the help of my phone’s flashlight. See the differences?

After waiting for a long time, finally the appetizer’s here. Something like garlic bread but it’s not as solid as the ordinary garlic bread. Pretty good though. A savior for a hunger, i.e. ME!

The similar unique glasses as Ferringhi Garden‘s. It’s slant! How I wish I could bring one back home! To my astonishment, my mom’s friend’s son, who’s only 4 years old enjoyed this a lot….and it’s COCKTAIL juice. I was teasing him if he would get drunk.

Salad with Scallops. I like the scallops but the salad there didn’t match my likings. I only ate up the scallops and the tomatoes and the rest was given to my mom’s friend :p

Tomato soup with garlic bread. The colour of the soup changed because of the flashlight, I’m SO SORRY. But I couldn’t take a clear picture of it if there’s no light 🙁 This and the dessert were my only favourites throughout the night. The only flaw of this soup was that it’s a little too spicy. Did they put a whole load pepper into it o.O

Another bad shot. Come to think of it, flashlights don’t guarantee good quality shots. Now I get it….

Lamb chop and fish. The lamb chop was okay to me, nothing special about it, just a normal one. The fish…….I think the fish that I had was not fresh, it had a pretty weird smell, but I still managed to force myself to swallow half of it.

Another favourite of mine. For those who know me, I am a 100% dessert junkie! Ice cream was such an indulgence after dealing with the awful fish.

The birthday girl’s birthday cake. It’s a chocolate moist cake which we ordered from Jenni Cake House. (Click here for my previous birthday cake made by Jenni Cake House as well)

Frankly speaking, you pay more for the ambience in The Sire restaurant than the food. To me, the food there isn’t really special. Exclude the birthday cake, the sum of the dishes that I showed above was approximately RM100. Over-rated. No offense, but it’s the truth. Fortunately, their desserts were great. So for those dessert lovers, I recommend you to come here after your meals. Order a dessert and some cocktails and this place shall be a perfect hangout for you and your friends!

Sticky Candy @ Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur

I found a couple of interesting photos from my camera this afternoon. And I remembered these were snapped when I was wandering around Pavilion before going to Jogoya in Starhill (that’s my previous post). Apparently, there’s extremely nothing to do in Starhill, because there’s nothing affordable at all. As I recalled, 2 years ago when I first went to Starhill, I bought a new eraser from Faber Castell, RM2! And insanely, I went around showing off to my friends, “Yo! I bought something from Starhill”. As I had expected, they were like, “OMG! Cool, Starhill, that’s a place where people can’t buy anything and you got something!” When they knew the truth, I got booed!

Anyway, back to the topic XD This was a really cute shop that caught my attention. At least a new concept in Malaysia. I saw this kind of stuffs on the TV, but I never knew that there’s one in KL! And the name of the shop itself was adorable~

I just love this piece of advertisement! So cute and sweet…..What are you guys thinking?! Have any idea what shop is this?! Going in now~~~

See them rolling a long weird-looking thingy?! I was astonished when I saw that long thing~ But after I took a closer look, I really wanted to tell the staffs that I wanna join them 😉

That’s actually a candy! They gotta keep on rolling it until it becomes real thin at the end and they will cut it off. I missed out the beginning part so I didn’t know how they started this thing. I supposed the whole main work is to keep on rolling rolling and rolling and it eventually would turn thinner thinner.

These were the end products of the rolling effort!!! Amazing isn’t it?! Somehow, I suddenly thought of a famous chinese saying by Lee Bai 李白(a famous China poet in the past): 只要功夫深,铁杆磨成针. Suits this situation, right?! 😉

P/s: Lee Bai used to be a kid who didn’t love to study and everyday he spent his time playing around. One day, he came across an old lady who’s grinding a huge metal. He went up and asked what’s she doing. “I am grinding this metal to make it into a needle”. Lee Bai was shocked when he heard that and he asked that old lady how long would it take to grind that into a thin needle. That lady answered him with that idiom above. Which actually meant, as long as you have the determination in doing something, one day you may succeed as long as you keep on going. Hearing this, Lee Bai went home and started to study hard, eventually he turned out to be a famous poet in Dynasty Tang.

And after the thin and long candy had been cut, they will turn into something like this 🙂

Wow!!! A collection of different flavours of candies. I want all!!

Take a closer peek! They are really cute aren’t they?! See the paterns or designs in the middle of the candy, I salute to the staffs’ skills. Good gift for friend’s birthday or as a souvenir for your loved ones!

Ferringhi Garden Restaurant @ Batu Ferringhi

A lazy Saturday afternoon, having nothing to do at home, I decided to plan a trip out with my “girlfriends”. Haha…we always call ourselves “The Malaysian Version Sex & The City”! Just as we were planning our hangout location, my friend suggested Ferringhi Garden which was not far from her house. She said that they serve great food with great ambience, so we decided to give it a try. I knew the main reason that she recommended this place was it was easier for her to get home after dinner. That was her main point~~~~

This was my first time to Ferringhi Garden, to my surprise, this place turned out to be much more better than I had expected. Words are kinda hard to explain all the joyness that we had from this picturesque restaurant. So, let the pictures tell you everything.

Filled with lots of tropical plants. Sink yourself into Malaysia’s tropical rainforest now! It’s time to please your eyes~~~

I could not hold back my lust for food for any longer. After I placed my order, I went around shooting photos with my camera. When I got back, the dishes were already served.

Mango juice & Mocha Frappe

The drinks were ordinary. But do you find anything abnormal about this photo? Take a closer look to the glasses. They were SLANT! Unique, right?!

Baked Garoupa

Spicy Snapper

Seafood Pasta WG

Baked Crab M’nay

Garlic bread

The night was getting darker….the atmosphere at night became more and more comfortable. Unquestionable, Ferringhi Garden Restaurant really offers a memorable dining experience.

Fullhouse Lifestyle Store & Cafe @ Niu Ze Xiu, Ara Damansara

Upon seeing a great review of this restaurant on a magazine, I had chosen this wonderful and sweet concept restaurant as the venue for our gathering in KL.

I am a totally concept-restaurant-addict. I have no idea when did I start to be crazy about concept restaurant.

Using the concept of ‘HOME SWEET HOME’, just like the Dream Family Cafe in Taiwan梦飨家, and the idea as well as the name of a Korean drama, [Fullhouse浪漫满屋], Fullhouse was designed to make you feel right at home. Pleasing to the eyes, the senses and the palates Fullhouse is a truly novel experience.

experience the greatest difference~~~only at FULLHOUSE!

Aside from an array of mouth-watering fusion deligts listed down in a quirky, super cute menu, almost everything under the roof of Fullhouse is for sale, from clothes and fashion accessories to gifts and decorative items!

Lavender and Peppermint Tea 薰衣草+薄荷茶
A new combination which I had never tried! However, you can hardly smell the lavender as the smell of peppermint is stronger!

Aglio Olio Spaghetti橄榄油和干西红柿意粉
Sauté spaghetti with garlic, extra virgin olive oil and sun-dried tomato

Fish & Wedges
This dish is quite ordinary, nothing special to me, but it’s sure a good choice to keep the kids busy eating instead of running around!

Wok-Sear Chicken Chop 招牌鸡排与黑椒葡萄干酱
Grilled chicken thigh served with mashed potato, daily vegetable and black pepper raisin juice.
One of their specialties, GOOD! Give it a try, highly recommended~~~

Oven Roasted Chicken Tenderloin 烤鸡里脊与番茄罗勒奶油
Roast corn fed chicken tenderloin with shitake mushroom and tomato basil cream

Smooties-Fruities Fish
Pan-fried butter fish infused with passion berries fruit reduction and sun-dried tomato. Erm….I am not into this dish…I think it is too sweet. Should try the Grilled Mix Seafood, I saw that on the menu, looks quite good to me, too bad, I didn’t order it as I was too full!

Overall, the ambience of this restaurant is great, but most of the dishes are average only. As for the desserts, they are exquisite, but kinda expensive. Check them out~~

El Cerdo @ Changkat Bukit Bintang

Speaking of El Cerdo, I am sure that no KL resident will ask, ” What on earth is that?” This restaurant was first established in 2005, due to its endless stream of customers, the owner, Werner, had expanded his business by to the lot next to the original one. Now, upon visiting El Cerdo, you may find a modern-looking Italian restaurant opposite it. That restaurant is named after the owner and was known as PIZA.

This trip to KL, I had made early arrangement with my friend to pay a visit to El Cerdo. Despite the tiredness we had from all those shopping, we set our feet in El Cerdo. The ambience was a bit quiet when we arrived and the waitress served us with cool mineral water once we got ourselves seated. And, I found something special about this restaurant at that moment. The waiters were busy carrying bottles of mineral water from table to table just to refill the customers’ half-emptied glass and I concluded that their service was really great. I rated them as 8/10!! (For such a fussy person like me, the rate was way too high~~~)

At first, we ladies could not decide what to order. Just then, Werner, came and greeted us warmly. He gave us some recommendations of the specialties of his restaurant and suggested some refreshing drinks for us too. Obediently, we ordered whatever that he recommended except for a few that we thought it would be too much for our dinner.

Love At First Try
Refreshing and thirst quenching~~

Mushroom Soup
This was really nice. My friends’ kids were totally obsessed with it. Really creamy and nice prepared! As for the garlic bread served, I personally thought that it was so so only. Soft yet not not crispy and not to mention hot from the oven!

Cold Ham with Rock Mellon & Salad
Absolutely something unique! The pork ham was cool and really thin! A bit salty when tasted but could be eaten together with the rock mellons served together too.

Meatball Spaghetti with Tomato Sauce
This was ordered to shut the kids’ mouths. They never dare to try those piglet and ribs.

El Cerdo’s Farmer Sausage served with Sauerkraut & Mashed Potato

One Plate of 4 Different Mini Sausages
Farmer, Thuringer, German Pepper, Spicy Lyonner Sausage with a choice of Sauerkraut or Potato Salad

1 Pair Wiener Sausages with Potato Salad from Germany

Roasted Suckling Piglet
Also known as “Cochinillo Al Estilo Segoviano”. It was believed that the piglet on the table was only mere 3 weeks old. Honestly, I felt quite guilty after my meal. However, on the other hand, I had to admit that it was really nice. Be prepared too, this half portion of piglet was shorter than half my arm and it cost us about RM100++, the whole piglet was RM200++. El Cerdo had a special way of eating. To prove that the piglet was crunchy and crispy, when the dish was served, one of the waiters would come over and picked a lucky person from the table to “perform the plate-breaking show”.

First, to prove that the piglet is crunchy and crispy, you will need to use a plate to chop the piglet at the head, the center of the body and somewhere at the ‘butt’ of the piglet, each part 3 times with all your might! Then, the waiter will push a big wooden tub towards the table, make a wish and then smash the plate into the wooden tub. This is a Greek tradition which symbolises good luck.

Pork Ribs
To tell you frankly, the pork ribs were better than the roasted piglet. The tomato at the side was totally nutritious yet delicious!

Ice Cream
Vanilla, Pistachio, Chocolate, Rum & Raisin, White Chocolate, Hazelnut

Churros Con Chocolate
Ermm…..regarding this plate, I really don’t have much to say. I am not a chocoholic, so I just ate a piece of that and I found that it was something similar to Aunty Anne’s. However, my friends enjoyed them very much.

At the end of the meal, we got a surprise. Glasses of cute little drinks were served for easier digestion after such yummy meal. For the kids, they got a tiny glass of orange juice (or mango, i am not very sure, but it sure tasted great). We, adults got glasses of vodka with lime with a salt-laced rim.

Be sure to be there early as the restaurant will appear to be crowded around 7.30pm. Kind advice for you, the food there is delicious, with a capital letter D without doubts! But they are quite pricey. 5 adults and 3 kids, our total bil came out to be RM478, a bit scary, right?! Indeed an interesting pork`licious experience!!
