Before you know it...we're going to the second week of Rejab...next will be Syaaban...& followed by the holy month of Ramadhan.
And i still havent ganti all my puasa...sigh!
Anyway...i'm fasting... today.
Trying to cover back what had been left....
So...making something sweet for my breakfasting & something to serve for tea.
And since my mum in law is around...i think she'll love that for sure!
What i had made... a recipe of my Mama.
Actually it's a plain cake but i turn it into cup cakes to make it interesting!
Ya...i know...it's always cakes....hehehe!
Being orang lama...all her recipes are not in grams or litres.
She measures them in cups n she has this notion of measuring ikut rasa aje... n walla... the end result of her cooking is surprisingly superb!
But this cup cake is really very simple...
I'll try to post some of her wonderful traditional cooking sometime in the near future.
