2-ingredient cake

Day 12 of circuit breaker. And everyday I experience with different type of dish, but most of the time mom will be doing the cooking (since I have to work from home).

This evening I made 2-ingredient cake and since my birthday is just around the corner, why not pamper myself with some happiness (for tummy).

We only need a pack of semi-chocolate chip and 4 eggs (grade A would be better but you can use large/omega one too!)

  1. Start off with a bag of choco chip (i use the whole bag, 340g). Melt it off in microwave for 30-40 secs. Mix well and let it cool, leave aside.
  2. Crack 4 eggs and separate the yolks and white in two different bowls.
  3. For the white yolks, use hand mixer to whisk till you get that fluffy peak foam.

  4. Add yolks, one by one and mix well with melted chocolate. Then, slowly add in the egg whites.
  5. Pour the batter in a greased pan (i used 8′ square pan).

    undefined
  6. Bake for 30 minutes, with 170 degree celsius.
  7. Let it cool for 1-2 minutes then sprinkle with either icing sugar or powdered sugar.

I used brown sugar and blend till soft/powdery.

Ondeh-ondeh keledek (sweet potato)

Circuit breaker has turned me into a diligent person lately.

And so I made ondeh-ondeh keledek (sweet potato). My first attempt by the way. I wanted to make two flavors – keledek and pandan but you know lah some Singaporeans unleashed their kiasi and kiasu attitude – they hoard almost everything they could.

I managed to get a pack of sweet potatoes (last few) and yesterday, with no skills, nothing, I ventured in making one. These are the things I used for my ondeh-ondeh:

Ingredients:
2 sweet potatoes (peel off skin)
150g glutinous rice flour
1 tbsp wheat starch
120ml water
6pcs mini gula melaka (palm sugar)
200g desiccated coconut (you can use kelapa parut too)
a pinch of salt

Methods:
1. Peel the (sweet potatoes/keledek) skins off before boiling. Boil them till they are lembik (soft)
2. Steam the desiccated coconut for about 15-20min
3. While waiting for keledek and desiccated to settle down, cut gula melaka into small pieces or smash them
4. Squash/smash the keledek and mix well with the glutinous rice flour & wheat starch till it becomes a dough
5. Take a small amount of the dough and make a ball out of it. Press with your thumb into the ball till it becomes a little flatten and put in 1/2 teaspoon of gula melaka in it. Then, re-ball it again.
6. Boil them into a hot pot. Once float, cool them off before coating them with smooth desiccated coconut.

There! That’s my ondeh-ondeh keledek. Easy to prep and cook/make. Attached below is a video I made for fun so that everyone in my reading list can enjoy watching… even though I am still quite amateur in video editing.

Stay safe everyone!
