This is the second time I'm making a cendol themed cake. The only difference is that I baked a pandan chiffon cake as the base instead of the vanilla chiffon cake. Also, I increased the concentration of the gula melaka syrup by reducing the water by half as compared to my first recipe, making the coconut frosting even more fragrant. Throw in the homemade cendol, red beans, "attap chee" (palm fuit), coconut milk, gula Melaka and fragrance from the homemade pandan juice, it"s like having a bowl of cendol, except that it's not ice cold ...........

I've been wanting to bake a granola bar from scratch. Homemade granola bars are wholesome. You can add ingredients you fancy and control the sweetness. No preservatives. All fresh and natural ingredients. I googled around and found this recipe by Ina Garten from Food Network (Ina Garten's Homemade Granola Bars). I liked it and set about to baking it with some modifications to the recipe.

It's been a long time since i update my blog and this is the first one for year 2017. Have not been really baking since the busy period of Chinese New Year. That was a really busy time for me with the baking, cooking and spring cleaning. I'm so glad that it was over and I managed to squeeze in two short holidays of sightseeing and golf. That was great fun in the company of all the wonderful friends.
Finally got a push to start baking again. In fact, I baked 3 cakes all in all within 3 days. So happy to get that baking zest back and the cakes all turned out beautiful and delicious. Baked my nephew's favourite chocolate cake for his 19th birthday followed by this pure pumpkin cheesecake. This one is for the April babies in my cell group.
