My Lava Cake Attempts with Rice Cooker

July 31st, 2020 · Nobody Surrendered

Lava cake is something I used to eat once in a blue moon. It’s not easy to find good ones, that’s why I don’t bother spending my money on it. It’s usually quite expensive too. Most time, I’ll end up with lava cake that did not ooze like it should, such a waste of money. I didn’t dare to attempt to do it too because I thought it is very hard and troublesome. I love to bake but I dislike dealing with too many steps and techniques. However, during the early days of MCO, I saw many people making it. I did a bit of research and found out that I have all the ingredients and the steps are easy, I decided to give it a try.

Here’s my first attempt using Malteser hot chocolate powder, do check out the video on my YouTube for the full recipe and instructions:

WOW! I didn’t expect it to be a success! Beginner’s luck maybe… Many used the steamer but I decided to use the rice cooker as it is easier and less hassle. There is no need to worry about the flame. All you need to do is boil the water in the rice cooker, remember to put a tray or steaming rack inside. Once it boils, put your cake batter in the mould in and let it steam for 8 minutes or less(for the size of standard cupcake mould). Don’t steam it for over 8 minutes or you will end up with steamed chocolate cake 😀

Here’s my second attempt with Milo and with no sugar added, just the sweetness from the Milo itself. I steamed it for a bit too long as I lost track of the time, hence the filling turned out stickier instead of runny.

So… Yes… You can omit the sugar if you are using chocolate drink powder that is already sweet on its own. You can check out the full recipe and instructions in the video too.

Try it out and let me know how you fare 😉 I didn’t expect it to be so easy!

Limited Edition Oreo, Fun with #SayItWithOreo

July 21st, 2020 · Nobody Surrendered

I’ve been seeing Oreo advertisement of Oreo about its limited edition alphabets printed Oreo. I went shopping the other day, saw it and decided to get it. Haven’t eat Oreo for a very looooong time. I think the last time I ate Oreo was last year. Anyway, I decided to make a video for it ;p here is the ASMR version.

Here is the normal video hahaha… I decided to do two versions because initially this was the plan then when I edited it, I realized I could do an ASMR version if it. Since I’ve recorded myself talking and it’s been a while not posting this kind of video, I ended up with two versions. This one will premiere tomorrow though hehehe…

Did you manage to get this Oreo? It’s quite fun trying to figure out words that you can make from it. Did get it and have fun playing with it? I did.

Self-Rising Flour Apam Balik | Improvised Apam Balik (no crushed peanuts, butter, baking powder)

July 16th, 2020 · Nobody Surrendered

I didn’t expect so many people will watch this video. It was my first time making Apam Balik aka Martabak Manis or 曼煎粿. I improvised it because I didn’t have crushed peanuts. It’s crispy when it’s freshly out from the pan, hence do not wait! Eat immediately! Otherwise it will become quite chewy. Do check out this video’s descriptions to see more details of the process. Here’s the direct link to the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Jejfx97iIE

ASMR Unbox & Cook Halal Nissin Ramen Uma-Kara Spicy Rich Fiery Broth & Tokyo Shoyu Premium Bonito Blend

July 9th, 2020 · Nobody Surrendered

Just found out I did not post my ASMR halal ramen unboxing video here. After I posted the first video, few days later, MCO kicked in. Here I have two that I bought from AEON earlier this year. If you would like to try it out, I would recommend these two. Uma-Kara Spicy Rich Fiery Broth and Tokyo Shoyu Premium Bonito Blend. The former is great for those who love heat and spice while the latter isn’t spicy. My tip is that do not follow the amount of water suggested for the broth, it will be tasteless. Just use half of the suggested amount or less. Do adjust it to your preference.

We are still in RMCO, today is day 114 of MCO, still have a long way to go. Hope all of you are well and stay vigilant.
