Steamed Brownies Layer Cake
Why on earth do i get so busy nowadays that by the end of the day i dont even hv the time nor energy to go online let alone visit my fellow bloggers and leaving footprints.. sorry again peeps.. it has been a few days.. I know.. unlike before Eid.. i usually will try to update my blog every single day :o(
To tell u the truth.. i think i am so worn out with all the stuff thats going on right now that it drains my energy easily... thank goodness Sonia always keep me sane.. errrr besides my baking of cos hehehe..
Hairi finally went back to camp today.. thank goodness.. today marks the end of me having to cook earlier than usual.. marks the end of us eating rice every day.. marks the end of me having to worry each time hes out somewhere with his friends till late... dont get me wrong yah.. i am not saying that by him going back to camp hes in a safe place.. thats not true at all.. dont be surprised what our kids might pick up while doing NS..
Anyway last Sunday was sis Lyns birthday.. shes 33 aka looks like a 17yrs old girl hehehe.. yesterday was moms bday.. Happy bday mom!.. I got both of them perfume and at the same time had to place Sonia under her care cos we had to attend the yearly German Unity Day.. this year it was held in one of the building in Shenton Way.. 65th floor.. tip top view of the whole Singapore.. why we get invited?.. i dont know.. my hb is Austrian .. not German muahahha
Today has been one long day.. hb had some seminar going on and got home late.. Sonia on the other hand has been giving me a hard time.. whats new ey.. when papa's not around.. shes always like that..
A few hours ago while i was doing ironing.. she accidentally touched the hot iron and started to cry so loudly that my heart bled.. her tiny little fingers were slightly burnt and i cud imagine how painful it must hv been.. u know Sonia.. shes a tough cookie.. she gets scratched.. she gets bitten by my cat, when she tripped and fell down.. she doesnt cry.. today she cried her heart out and it hurt me.. she only stopped crying after I gave her milk (I had to be by her side while she finished her milk cos she kept on moving her fingers wanting me to blow it.. awww poor girl)
Ok ok i better stop blaberring.. this is what I managed to bake this afternoon.. had wanted to try out this recipe bef Ramadhan but never got to it.. so so glad that I decided to do it today cos it turns out very good.. I love the richness of this cake and the texture too.... eat it while its warm or heat it up the next time u wanna hv it with ur cup of cuppa.. or if ur too lazy.. just slice em and eat em cos this cake stays soft even when its not warm.. wonderful recipe fm Mamagaby..
