Lapis Malang Pandan

I made this last night and wasn't planning on posting the recipe here, for couple of reasons ...
A. Because this isn't original lapis malang, I must admit I cheated by using my classic jelly rolled recipe :P, so I am not sure if I can call this lapis Malang or not.
B. I did not take a good pictures, I only took couple snaps with my IPad ...

But I ended up posting it here because my friends requested me for the recipe, so here it is

Ingredients :
10 egg yolk
5 egg white
150 gr sugar
Vanilla essence
Pandan essence, orriginally using chocholate powder or essence, but you can be creative playing with your favorite flavour
Stawberry jam, or your favorite jam
150 gr all purpose flour
25 gr Custard powder, I use vanilla pudding mix
150 gr melted butter


Heat the oven 400F
Prepare 2 square 8 inches pans with butter and dust it with flour, set aside.
Using high speed mixer, beat egg yolk, egg white, vanilla essence and sugar until well arrised and fluffy, I'd say arround 12 minutes. It's important to have eggs in room temperature, it will raise more and faster in my opinion.
Mix flour and custard powder, turn the mixer to the lowest speed.
Gradually add melted butter and mixed flour.
Continue folding the batter with spatulla.
Devide the batter into 2 part, pour one part into first pan
Add pandan essence into another part, and folded well.
Pour it into another prepared cake pan.
Bake it for 12 minutes, turn. The oven down to 375F and continue baking for another 10 minutes.

When it's done, smear strowberry jam evenly on the frist cake surface, release another cake and place it on top of jam smeared cake. Put the pan on top of the cake to make sure the two cakes are attached and well glued.

Slice it, and ready to serve :)

Pineapple Jam

I made some pineapple jam some times ago, and I haven't had any chance to blog about it.
Pineapple jam is so popular among Indonesian,  matter of fact in every big celebration such as Eid ul Fitr or Xmas people make pineapple cookies. So I can almost guarantee most of them know how to make pineapple jam.

It's very easy to make, you don't need to measure anything, it only calls for 2 ingredients .. pineapple and sugar that's all! you don't need to use pectin. 

Ingredients :

1 Pineapple, peeled, cored and cut into big pieces 
1 cup sugar (or more)

Method :
Blend or processed the pineapple using electric blender or food processors 
Heat the pineapple with sugar in a non coated pan in medium low heat, continually stir the mixture until reaching jam consistency you desired. 

If making this for regular everyday jam, I like using blender so the end result would be really smooth. But if you make it for pineapple cookies, I'd recommend using regular manual cheese shredder, and cook it until really thick. Powered by Blogger.
