RAINBOW BUTTER CAKE (CHEF NORAINI)
This morning, I was out of the house quite early. It's because I have something to settle with the MPSJ. Kak Ana has been kind enough to accompany me. Went to the not so friendly counter and settled whatever I have to settle, as fast as 15 minutes! What a relief! From there, Kak Ana asked if we could go to Mydin. So off to Mydin we went. We actually took our own sweet time there and we shop at ease since there were not many people in the store. Surprised? You should be, huh... Mydin is always crowded UNLESS WE GO THERE WHEN THEY ARE JUST OPENED FOR BUSINESS which was what we actually did just now! Hahaha... that explains, right! Hahaha...
Back from Mydin, I straight away transformed the Ikan Tenggiri that I just bought, into this....
Was so happy to see how Syahmi enjoyed his lunch and dinner... MasyaAllah...
Enough said for now, let me just post a cake recipe that I had recently tested in my kitchen. Got it from Dari Dapur CT . According to her, this recipe came from Chef Noraini Zakaria . Thank you to both ladies for sharing and promoting this recipe. I made this cake for to bring to my brother's house in Bangi.
