Steamed Layer Cake (Masam Manis) Recipe

Steamed Layer Cakes

I love visiting other people’s food blogs for inspiration. I have to hang my head in shame because as of late, I’ve been so busy that I’ve not had enough time to do that as often as I would like. However, recently, I noticed a new commenter who has been coming around and leaving very encouraging comments. Out of curiousity, I clicked on her blog and from there, found my way to several other blogs. The inspiration for today’s recipe comes from there. So thank you, Ninazsyafinaz for helping us find this recipe.


Rice Krispies treats

We made enough Rice Krispies treats to feed a small army…

Rice Krispies Treats

We had a pretty busy weekend, and it was tough finding time to make anything with the Royal Selangor Jelly Mould for the Jellyriffic Challenge. We were hoping to do at least 4 different creations but ended up only doing 3: yesterday’s Jelly Doughnuts, today’s Rice Krispies treats, and another one for tomorrow.

We had a birthday party to attend in the evening, so we decided to make these Rice Krispies as a dessert offering. The Rice Krispies treats were pretty easy to prepare, but the assembling took a lot of work, especially when the Krispies started to get cool.

Here’s how it was done.


Jelly Doughnuts

We used our Royal Selangor Jelly Mould to make…

The whole point about the Jellyriffic “Get Your Jelly On” challenge is to come up with 30 days’ worth of creative uses for the jelly mould. Over the past week, we’ve done lots of jellies like Dragonfruit Agar-Agar, “Michael Jackson” Agar-Agar, Sirap Selasih Konnyaku, and White Coffee Konnyaku. All interesting jelly recipes, to be sure. But we’ve not really begun thinking “outside the cone” until now.

Annie’s been wanting to try making doughnuts, even though she’s not much in to deep frying. This challenge seemed like the perfect opportunity for us to try something we’ve never done before (same like the Easy Chicken Terrine recipe we did the other day).  She found a doughnut recipe that looked easy and decided to make it this weekend.

Here’s how we did it.


My Breast Cancer Scare

We’ve been having a lot of fun with all our jellies in the Royal Selangor “Get Your Jelly On” challenge. It’s also been crazy, what with full-time work, cooking, and then clearing up, getting the kids to bed and THEN making jellies. We certainly need our heads bonked for taking up this challenge to make jellies and blog about them EVERYDAY!

However, there is a reason for the insanity. It’s a worthwhile cause. It supports breast cancer and this is a disease that hits a LOT of women. We certainly know of it firsthand as Nate’s mom was diagnosed with this just a few years ago. We are thankful that she is now in remission and we continue to pray for her to stay that way.

As for myself, I wanted to share a story with you of my own personal experience.
