Hawaiian Nut Cookies (Famous Amos)

A few days back my sister, Kamila wanted to try out this recipe which we got from forwarded emails. This email has been going around for years I think. I remember printing it out and later throwing it away thinking that its a fake thing.
The recipe can be halved. I omitted the Cadbury bar and halved the sugars.

2 cups of butter
4 cups of flour
2 tsp of baking soda
2 Cups brown sugar
2 Cups granulated sugar
5 Cups Oatmeal (measure oatmeal & blend to a fine powder)
24 oz Choc Chip
1tsp salt
18 oz Cadbury bar (grated)
4 Eggs
2 tsp Baking Powder
3 Cups Chopped Nuts (walnut/cashew/almond)
2 tsp Vanilla
1. Cream butter with sugar till light and fluffy .
2. Add eggs and vanilla.
3. Mix in flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
4. Add chocolate chips, Cadbury bar and nuts.
5. Roll into balls and place 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet
6. Bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees. Makes 122 cookies

It looks yummy right? Well, its delicious just like famous amos recipe. Taste-a-like  J
My sister added some cocoa powder to part of the dough and it turned out to be superb!
After all it's not a hoax. Happy trying!

Semolina Pumpkin Porridge

Semolina or Sughee is the coarse, purified wheat middlings made from durum wheat, a hard variety of wheat quite unlike the wheat used to make bread. Durum wheat is commonly used in the making of pasta, breakfast cereals and puddings. Semolina is the gritty, coarse, fibre-rich particle of wheat left behind after the finer particles of flour have passed through the refining process.
Semolina can be made into many yummy dishes, sweet or savoury. And here is one of them J


160gm of semolina flour
2 liters of water
3 screw-pine leaves (knotted)
250ml of full cream milk
300gm of pumpkin (peeled & cut into cubes)
180gm of sugar
¾ tsp of salt


§  Pour the 2 liters water into a pot and boil the pumpkin and screw-pine leaves till the pumpkin is soft.
§  Add in the sugar. You may add or reduce the sugar to your liking. Add in the salt.
§  When the sugar has melted. Pour in the semolina in a steady stream while continuing to stir. This is to prevent the flour from clumping.
§  Add in the milk and bring to boil for some time. Add more water if the porridge is too thick.

Note: The semolina grain will continue to expand while cooling. It might become pudding like. Just add some hot water and heat it up again

What an egg!

I found this egg in the lot I bought last weekend. Funny looking thing :)

Apple Cakes

Recently I have been experimenting with apple cakes. Either with the apple on the top or at the bottom (upsidedown cake)

The cake batter is the same. Its just the choice of placing the apple at the bottom of the cake for the Apple Upsidedown Cake or placing the apple on top of the batter.

The picture I have here is the Apple Upsidedown Cake. I used light brown sugar so the color is not so dark. The apples can also be replaced with peaches or pineapples. Try to use fresh ones instead of canned ones.

Here is the recipe for both type of cake:

Cake Batter


226gm of butter
150gm of sugar
4 large eggs
1tsp vanilla essence
380gm all purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
5 tbs of milk
1tbs orange zest / orange oil (optional)


~ Line and grease an 9'' round cake tin.
~ Sift flour, baking powder and salt and put aside
~ Cream butter and sugar till light and creamy. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Add in vanilla and orange zest.
~ Mixer on slow speed, add flour mixture and milk alternately until well combined.

For apple cake :

2-3 medium apples/peaches (peel and slice it)
3 tbs brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon powder

~ Pour the cake batter into the prepared cake tin.
~ Arrange the apple slices on the batter and sprinkle with the sugar and cinnamon.
~ Bake for 45-55 minutes or till a skewer inserted comes out clean.
~ Let cool for 10 minutes before moving the cake unto a cooling rack. Brush with warm orange marmalade

For Upsidedown Apple Cake :

2-3 medium apples/peaches (peel and slice it)
4 tbs brown sugar
6 tbs butter

~ Melt the butter and the sugar in a sauce pan. Pour it into the prepared cake tin.
~ Arrange the apple slices over it.
~ Pour in the cake batter and bake for 45 -55 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
~ Let cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before inverting it on a serving platter.

Fried Biryani Rice

It took me a long time deciding on which recipe to be on my first post. I have decided on this recipe which I saw on the back of a spice mix packet. I have amended this recipe by adding a few more ingredients. Do give it a try....


2 cups of basmathi rice (cooked and keep in fridge overnite)
2 cups of chicken (cut into small pcs)
1 cups of medium prawn
1 large onions (sliced)
1 tbs of blended garlic
2 tbs of blended ginger
3 tbs of biryani powder mix
1 tbs oyster sauce
2-3 red chilies (sliced)
5 tbs of ghee
1-2 cups of water
mix vege
cabbage (sliced thinly)
small cinnamon stick
salt to taste


  • ·    Heat the ghee in a wok. Add in the onions + red chilies + cinnamon. Saute for 2-3 minutes and then add in the garlic + ginger.
  • ·    When the onions are turning brown, add in the biryani powder and continue stirring. Pour in some water and add in the chicken, prawn , oyster sos, mix vege and salt. Let it boil till the chicken are cooked and the gravy is thick.
  • ·     Add in the cabbage and rice. Stir till the rice and gravy are well combined.
The amount of cabbage and mix vege varies depending on individual preference. If you do not like mix vege or cabbage, you can replace it with long bean. If you dont want to use basmathi rice, then normal rice is fine.
