APAM INDON (Blackmore)

Something to share with all of you my dear visitors. I got this in my email sent by a friend quite sometime back.....

Subject: Staying young

Do you realize that the only time in our lives when we like to get old is when we're kids?
If you're less than 10 years old, you're so excited about aging that you think in fractions. "How old are you?" "I'm four and a half!" You're never thirty-six and a half. You're four and a half, going on five! That's the key.
You get into your teens, now they can't hold you back. You jump to the next number, or even a few ahead. "How old are you?" "I'm gonna be 16!" You could be 13, but hey, you're gonna be 16! And then the greatest day of your life . . . you become 21. Even the words sound like a ceremony . . . YOU BECOME 21. YESSSS!!!
But then you turn 30. Oooohh, what happened there? Makes you sound like bad milk. He TURNED; we had to throw him out. There's no fun now, you're Just a sour-dumpling. What's wrong? What's changed? You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, then you're PUSHING 40. Whoa! Put on the brakes, it's all slipping away. Before you know it, you REACH 50 . . . and your dreams are gone. But wait!!! You MAKE it to 60. You didn't think you would! So you BECOME 21, TURN 30, PUSH 40, REACH 50 and MAKE it to 60. You've built up so much speed that you HIT 70! After that it's a day-by-day thing; you HIT Wednesday! You get into your 80s and every day is a complete cycle; you HIT lunch; you TURN 4:30; you REACH bedtime. And it doesn't end there. Into the 90s, you start going backwards; "I Was JUST 92." Then a strange thing happens. If you make it over 100, you become a little kid again. "I'm 100 and a half!" May you all make it to a healthy 100 and a half!!


1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay them.
2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.
3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. " An idle mind is the devil's workshop." And the devil's name is Alzheimer's.
4. Enjoy the simple things.
5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.
6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive.
7. Surround yourself with what you love, Whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.
8. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.
9. Don't take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.
10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

AND ALWAYS REMEMBER: Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
And if you don't send this to at least 8 people - who cares? But do share this with someone. We all need to live life to its fullest each day.

I think this week, I can consider my self slightly lazy-free. Did quite a few experiments and most of them suited my taste as well as the rest of the family members. But as usual, different people has different tastebuds. Sometimes hubby said ok, the kids said ko and when hubby said so so, kids said, delicious! You guys must be wondering, why didn't mama come into the picture. It's because, with mama, it's always...everything is nice! Hahaha.... So why bother asking my opinion!

This morning, I started my experiment at 5 am. Actually I wanted to try it yesterday night, but was a bit tired. I closed the kitchen door and and the next thing you hear is my mixer roaring! But not to worry, I don't think the neighbours can hear because nobody in this house woke up with that noise! I came across this lovely recipe in Forum Cari yesterday posted by Blackmore. Thank you so much Blackmore for this lovely easy to make recipe . It's so soft and spongy. For those who care to try, here's the recipe but mind you, I don't know where she got the name from ya.....


Ingredients :

5 eggs
1 teaspoon ovalette
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
(I put 1 teaspoon)
300 g flour
300 g castor sugar
250 ml coconut milk
(I use fresh milk)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
a pinch of salt
coloring of your choice

Method :

1. Prepare the steamer. To avoid water from dripping onto the cake, wrap the cover with a piece of clean towel.
2. Prepare the tin. Just layer it with greaseproof paper. Doesn't need to be greased.
3. Sift flour and baking powder. Set aside.
4. Mix salt and coconut milk. Stir till well dissolved.
5. In a mixer, place the eggs and ovalette. Beat on high speed till light and fluffy.
6. Pour in sugar, little at a time. Then vanilla essence.
7. Lower the mixer speed. Add flour bit by bit alternate with coconut milk. Cut and fold till well mixed.
8. Divide into 3 equal parts. And add a few drops of different coloring into each part and mix well.
9. Pour the first color into the tray and level it. Steam for about 10 minutes or until the top is no longer sticky.
10. Pour the second color and repeat the same procedure as # 9.
11. When the second layer is done, pour the final layer and steam for 25 -30 minutes on medium heat.

How Sal made her Apam Indon without ovallette :
....Tak ada ovelete pun entam keromo je dgn self-raising flour dgn soda b-carb, ni dah kena virus be creative n inovative mamafami agaknya ha ha... jadi pulak tu and sure taste good.....

2. Julia>> Mama ambil explainain ni dari Diana Desserts :
You can substitute Ovalette with Quick 75. Ovalette is yellowish in colour whereas Quick 75 is whitish.
Both are stabiliser and are used in baking sponge cakes because it enables the eggs to rise rapidly and stiffly

Eee tak pernah dibuek orang....kotlah Lynn nak jadi orang pertama, dipersilakanlah yek...nanti nama Lynn la pulak glamer! Pencipta sejarah apam bertopping! Hehehe....
37. lynn>> Tu kezutan namanya tu! Hehehe...tapi kalau nak buat topping tu, tak bolehlah cair sangat kot sebab takut nanti meresap dalam apam, terus lembek pulak. Nanti bukan tetamu yang terkezut tapi tuan rumah yang terkezut!
38. Liza>> Betul tu Liza, lebih kurang je resipi apam-apam ni...Apam Indon ni memang tahan lama. Mama pun kenkadang buat apam mekar yang kuncup...hahaha...
