Eversince our last trip.. Sonia has been waking up in the middle of the night wanting to sleep in our room... we hv tried all kinds of ways to put her to bed when she wakes up but of no use... so lately hb and I hv not been sleeping properly and whats worse she wud always kick me in her sleep... grrrr
So yesterday for a change hb had "prohibited" me fm baking.. I decided to just chill and not bake anything eventho my mind kept on thinking abt baking sugee cake.. I hv never eaten sugee cake before and when i saw this recipe on the little teochew blog i felt intrigued.. err well i think its more abt the stories of 2 ladies behind this recipe... sooo without further ado today i decided to bake not one but three types of desert lol.. I gave mom half of this cake (she lovessss sugee cake!) and half of the other cake to my aunt.. I will let u know if i like the taste of this cake tmrw tho..
Note: No comment on the taste of this cake cos i didnt even take a bite.. mom said its yummy and super soft... so i guess thats good enough to say this recipe is worth trying.. :o)
