No Fail Chocolate Chip Cookies

No Fail Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am here again and this is my first post for this year. Guilty for not updating but I do log in everyday as a passive reader..just to click ‘like’ and ‘comment’ on a few posts. My baking journey continues too where actually I did a few baking but don’t turn out very well. My first baking for 2013 was pavlova and I am not proud of it… (Gonna make again soon, but need to find the trick and tips to bake better meringue).

Well for the failure of my Pavlova, I managed to successfully baked this super delicious chocolate chip cookies….my children loved them and my hubby said they are better than store-bought cookies. The kids brought them to school for lunch….(happy !!!) (My children like home cooked meal for their lunch box and I am proud to cook for them everyday).

I use this recipe from http://www.instructables.com/id/Best-Ever-Chocolate-Chip-Cookie-Recipe/ and follow the instructions very closely though I must admit that waiting the dough to be frozen for 36 hours is very difficult. So I do bake some unfrozen dough and it doesn’t taste good….I love this recipe and gonna make this again and again.

Here is the recipe…for instructions please click the link above…..Good Luck
2 1/2 cups (350 g) all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup (8 ounces/225 g) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup (215 g) packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup (150 g) granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs, at room temperature
2 cups (about 225 g) nuts, toasted and chopped
14 ounces (400 g) bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
Sea salt for sprinkling on top (what??)

Dough To Be Frozen

Chocolate Bouquet for Engagement Gift

I’ve been very busy lately with too many things to do and events to attend. The house chores are unbelievably increase and we have yet to attend a cousin’s engagement ceremony.. For this event, we decided to give a simple yet lovely gift. This is my homemade chocolate bouquet. I use 20 pieces Ferrero Rocher chocolates, variety tissue papers, sticks, silver decor bird and butterflies, silver twigs and a white vase.


Ice-cream Cake

Last August I threw my youngest son a simple party for his 3rd birthday. I was a simple party where we threw it at his kindergarten. After some discussion with his teachers, we agreed to make it during tea time, where tea is served together with fried noodles.

I had prepared a birthday banner in advance for the teachers to paste on the wall. As a working mother, birthday cake is not normally a cake. Some times I use pudding, sometimes tart and the list goes on.

For this birthday batch I made an ice-cream cake. It was so simple but yet catches the taste buds of the children. Ice cream cakes are really quite easy to make at home. Though they do take a bit longer than a regular layer cake in terms of prep time, they are not difficult at all to put together. Just make sure to save room in the freezer for the finished cake. And always remember that this isn’t the kind of homemade dessert that you can stick in an airtight container and leave on the counter!

My version of ice-cream cake is a 100% ice-cream, sandwich together with chocolate sauce in between.

Below is simple steps to make ice-cream cake.

Ingredients

2 containers of vanilla ice-cream
Chocolate sauce
A packet of M&Ms

Method

1. Layer A: Place vanilla ice-cream on the counter and set aside to soften. Once soft, spoon into baking pan and smooth with a spatula. Freeze until firm. (You may need to cover the pan with foil to easily remove it.)
2. Layer B : Repeat step 1 for the second layer.
3. Remove pan A from freezer. Pour chocolate sauce onto the ice cream. Freeze until the chocolate sauce sets.
4. Remove layer B from pan. Place it on top of layer A, with chocolate sauce in between. Freeze for 5 minutes.
5. When ready to serve, carefully remove from pan and decorate with M&Ms.

Moist Chocolate Cupcakes

This is a keeper in my family. I’ve been baking this cake since forever (or can I say since I found it in the allrecipes)… My children like it, my husband likes it and I receive orders for this yummy cake. My husband said, the cake was not very sweet ( We kind of limiting sugar in our diet)… and what’s more to enjoy….it’s a no failure cake recipe….
