Chocolate Chiffon Cake

Baked this last night while watching Ch 8 9pm show. Used the recipe for pandan chiffon cake, but substituted the pandan coconut with 3 tbsps Hershey's cocoa powder. I used a 8-inch chiffon cake pan and baked at 170 degrees celsius for 45 mins. The cake did not rise as tall as I expected it to. I wonder what went wrong. Nevertheless, the taste is quite good with a mild cocoa fragrance. Both DD and myself had 3 slices each for breakfast this morning.

Pineapple Frenzy

DD went beserk and bought 5 pineapples on Sunday!!! In the end, we gave 3 of them to our parents. The other 2, I decided to use it for pineapple rice.

Thai Pineapple Rice

I named this dish "富贵花开" (meaning prosperity and flowers blooming)

Steamed Yam and Prawn

Tried out this new creation of mine today, a Singaporean and Western style fusion of steamed yam and prawn. Found that the taste is so-so only. Will not be making this dish in the near future.
