Dried Jelly in the making

These dried jelly looks like gem stones when still in its moist will take 3-4 days of hot sun to dry . I decided to make  them ahead of time so that I can be sure they are dried enough  for me to pack for an engagement favour in mid  March..

The green is infused with pandan , brown sarsi flavored  &  yellow in its original rock sugar   recipe

I'm using a recipe that is not too sweet...

Agar agar kering - A classic Malay favour

When I was younger ,I remembered that dried jelly or we Malay call it agar agar kering  as one of the stuff that my sibling  and I will rumage for during  Eid Fitri .

 But those that I ate when I was a kid really tasted like candy, lots of sugar. But as I grew up, the candies tasted less sugary and more jelly like. It tastes better this way, less sweet. I have tried many recipes and finally found one that tasted just right..less sweet ,chewy jelly and with a good crust ...

Makes a dazzling wedding favour...bringing back the good old days 

Just like macarons...these dried jelly will turn out better looking with  Mr Sunshine

Red Velvet with yogurt

Red Velvet cakes are sinfully delicious indeed besides all the colouring & fat involved in the making....

This morning I tried making a " healthier"  version using yogurt for my kids ...I kept this recipe dah lama tak ingat jumpa kat blog mana ...the verdict... it does taste lighter with yogurt and Yup its one of the best I've made...maybe just a bit  mahal this time... 
For the fun of it I  added chocolate chip to the batter & apricot colouring & flavour to the cream cheese

With my kids these cakes didn't  get to stay long in the was gone in no time...

Red Velvet Cake with yogurt 

1 1/2 cups butter, softened to room temperature
2 1/4 cups sugar
3 large eggs
1 1/2 cups vanilla yogurt
1 ounce red food coloring (liquid or gel)
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 1/4 cups flour
3 Tbs. cocoa powder
2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 180C.

-In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar till light and fluffy
-Add eggs one at a time.
-Combine yogurt, red food coloring and vanilla extract in a small bowl.
- Sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt in another bowl. -Alternate adding the yogurt mixture and flour mixture into the large bowl
- Pour batter into cupcake liners and bake 15-20 Cool completely.

Note :Instead of vanilla yogurt, I've also tried using 1 1/2 cups whole milk mixed with 2 tablespoons of lemon juice / vinegar  and it has worked just as good
