Braised Chicken In Soy Sauce (Ayam Masak Kecap)

Easy dish cooked in pressure cooker, resulting in a soft and flavourful meat. Nice to eat with a bowl (or two) of fluffy hot rice :)

Recipe is modified from Signora pressure cooker recipe book
What you need:
1 free range chicken, cut into parts
1/2 yellow onion, sliced
5 cloves of garlic, minced
about 6 tbsp dark sweet soya sauce (kecap manis)
1 tbsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp chicken stock powder
salt, pepper, sugar to taste
2 tbsp butter
about 1-2 tbsp water
  1. Melt butter and sesame oil in a pan of preheated pressure cooker for sauteeing (mine is "meat/bean")
  2. Sautee onion and garlic til fragrant, add in chicken, kecap manis, water and other seasonings. Mix well
  3. Cover the pressure cooker, press "cancel" then press "chicken" button and let it does its work
  • Each pressure cooker has its own unique function, please study yours first before using
  • This recipe can be cooked using normal wok over stove

I served this chicken dish with a simple stir fry carrot and cabbage. Simply sautee minced garlic in a wok with a little oil, add in cabbage, carrot and tomato, also a little water, let boil and simmer for a few mins til vegetables are soft (not too soft though) and season with salt and pepper

Milo Chiffon Cake

This is the most moist chiffon cake I ever made and eaten. I failed twice before finally made it on the third try. So happy!
It's so delicious, chocolaty with a hint of malt flavour from the Milo used. Texture is so soft and fluffy, the kind a chiffon cake should have :)

Recipe is from Peng's Kitchen
What you need:
80g egg yolks
40g sugar
100ml oil (I used rice bran)
2 tsp vanilla extract
160g cake flour
1/4 tsp salt
150ml warm milk
150g Milo powder
250g cold egg whites
60g sugar
  1. Mix in Milo powder into warm milk, stir well til powder is dissolved. Set aside
  2. Beat yolks and sugar til pale and fluffy. Add in oil, vanilla and milk mixture, stir well to combine
  3. Sift in flour and salt, mix well
  4. In another clean bowl, beat egg whites til frothy. Add in sugar gradually til reaches stiff peak
  5. Mix in 1/3 of the egg white batter into Milo batter
  6. Pour the mixture into the remaining egg whites, fold in gently til well combined
  7. Pour the batter into ungreased 21cm chiffon pan and bake in preheated oven of 180degC for 45mins
  8. Remove pan from oven and invert on a wire rack, let cool completely and unmould

Abby really loves it she could eat 3 big slices at one go! :)

Yummy yummy!
So pillowy soft! This gonna be one cake I will bake again and again in the future :)
