ABOK ABOK SAGO

Abok Abok Sago  Recipe @ http://treatntrick.blogspot.com


Abok Abok Sago is a traditional Asian dessert normally wrapped in banana leaf made with pearl sago, grated coconut and palm sugar.

This time this dessert is undergoing a makeover by adding 2 different color, one with green food coloring while other portion was orange (I got this after adding the orange colored sugar) and using small tart mould.

You can also make use of jelly mould and changing the color according to your choice. It's fun to see the transformation.

These Abok Abok Sago have  special  coconut aroma and slightly chewy texture

GREEN BEAN BROWNIES GF

Gluten Free Green Bean Brownies


Have you tried making brownies with beans? This might not sound appetizing but give it a try, you'll not be disappointed!

Mostly they used black bean but this isn't available in my pantry so make use of dried green bean aka mung bean. You have to soak the bean overnight, they will expand in volume and easily get 1 1/2 cup of green bean after soaking.  Rinse and drain then process them into thick paste.

Since this Green Bean Brownies is gluten free, have used chick pea and ground rolled oat but if you have no issue about wheat  in your diet,  half cup of plain flour and  1/4  cup of corn flour can be used.

Also mashed banana can be replaced  with  1/3 cup of pumpkin puree or mashed  sweet potato.

These Green Bean Brownies are rich in fiber and protein but surprisingly no one can tell that  it was made with green bean.

My family loved them and wanted more after eating them.

CRUNCH DROPS



Do you have friends or family coming to visit? Treat them to some delicious and relatively healthy Crunch Drops  Cookies for dessert. These cookies are made with rolled oat and breakfast cereal (cornflakes). This recipe is very simple and not time consuming to whip up.

Crunch Drops

These are healthy, fiber packed, indulgent and delicious! Another tip, you must let them sit about 3 minutes in a pan after baking since they tend to break and still very soft before transferring them onto rack to cool. They are crunchy outside but chewy inside, great for morning tea or afternoon snack too.

ALMOND CHOCOLATE COOKIES



These Almond Chocolate Cookies are deliciously simple to make yet are elegant and tasty dessert.

The dough of these cookies can be prepared in advance, keep refrigerated for use the next day. Substitute your choice of nuts for the almonds if needed.

As we grow older, we tend to be more health conscious and avoid taking overly sweet desserts. This is the reason why I resort to make my own rather than buying the ready made cookies that are way too sweet.

BUBUR SUJI / SEMOLINA KHEER

Bubur Suji Recipe @ http://treatntrick.blogspot.com


One of the most popular desserts during Ramadan is this Bubur Suji that was made with semolina, milk and sugar.

It is fairly simple to make  but care should be taken once you've added the semolina to the hot milk. You need to stir constantly to avoid lumps and sticking to the bottom of the pot.

If you're not keen to use the ghee. just dry roast the semolina  until  you get nice aroma also you can bake  the almond  instead of frying.

Bubur Suji is individually served in a small bowl/cup and garnish with raisin and nuts.

Bubur Suji Recipe @ http://treatntrick.blogspot.com

It tends to thicken up  as it cools down. No worries, just add some milk or hot water to get the pouring consistency again.

Bubur Suji  can be served either hot or cold.

EGGLESS SEMOLINA CAKE



A fantastic recipe and my family favorite that you can make anytime of the year.  This Eggless Semolina Cake  is a different version of semolina cake that was low in  fat and egg free.

Eggless Semolina Cake  has  a lovely texture that is distinctly different than cakes made with flour. Although it wasn't super soft as a normal cake but it was moist due to the addition of mashed banana.  I will make this again for sure only next time and  will  double this recipe.  I hope others find it delicious too!

Had used canola oil instead of melted butter. If you're allergic to dairy products, soy milk, almond milk or rice milk is a great substitute.

CHOCOLATE SWIRL BREAD

chocolate swirl bread recipe @ http://treatntrick.blogspot.com


This Chocolate Swirl Bread surprised my family and friends, it tastes so good. Don't be intimidated by the process of making the yeast bread, it's surprisingly  easy if you follow the basic steps.

If you have to choose a perfect time of the day to eat Chocolate Swirl Bread, it's probably snack time -  time when you come home from school or work and your  mom/wife   prepares  something warm and sweet to revive your fatigued  day.

For smoother spreadable filling, I strongly  suggested that you use icing sugar but this time had used castor sugar  since that was available in my pantry.  If you're pressed for time, opt for ready made  chocolate spread for the filling.

BANANA HONEY CAKE


I've been looking at these poor bananas getting more and more ripe every day for the last week.  Obviously baking banana bread came to my mind. Hmm.. this comforting Banana Honey Cake was the answer to what to do with those  banana.

I have used melted butter but it  can be substituted with vegetable  oil for healthier option. If you're allergic to milk,  soy milk, almond milk or rice milk  can all be     easily  replaced   for dairy  in  most recipes.

Am not keen on dressing up my bakes with frosting but you can go ahead to use your favorite frosting if desired.

In case you have overly ripe banana,  peel  the skin then  wrap in plastic individually, again keep them sealed in a zip lock bag before putting them in a freezer.  If you want to use,  thaw them in your refrigerator overnight.



BANANA HONEY CAKE
Serves :  12

230 g self raising flour
30 g corn flour
1/2  cup  brown sugar
3 medium banana mashed
1/4  tsp salt
1/2 cup oil/melted butter
3/4 cup milk or non dairy milk
2 tablespoon  honey
1 tsp vanilla extract



METHOD

Preheat oven @ 180 C and grease 7 in cake pan.

Sift together self raising flour and corn flour.

Combine mashed banana, sugar, salt, oil, honey and milk.. Whisk until well combined.

Add in banana mixture to the dry ingredients, add in vanilla extract, stir until well incorporated.

Spoon mixture  into prepared pan, bake for  30-40 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Cool in the pan 5 minutes, transfer onto rack to cool.

KUIH BAKAR KENTANG (BAKED POTATO CAKE)

Baled Potato Cake Recipe  @ http://treatntrick.blogspot.com



It is baking  time again in my kitchen. We had this traditional kuih a long time ago. This is a simple dessert using coconut milk and mashed potato.

Am using milk but it would be  much tastier if you're using coconut milk.  For smoother and well mixed batter, a blender/food processor  is highly recommended..

Normally Kuih Bakar Kentang (Baked Potato Cake)  uses egg but my version is totally egg free.   You can bake the with or without sesame seeds but  I love the contrast of color it gives.

Make sure to grease the pan generously  to avoid sticking  since there isn't any fat in the recipe. Over all, they are awesome for breakfast or tea time snack.

Kick start the day with a hearty muffin and fill the kitchen with the enticing aroma of freshly baked muffins. The options are endless, use it to create your own by adding different fruits, nuts, vegetables, flavorings or various grains.

The key to making great muffin is mixing the batter just enough to combine all the wet and dry ingredients but without over mixing it.

These baked muffins are low in fat. super moist packed with fresh fruit, fiber and good for us fats. I added grated apple, mashed  banana and carrot also using coconut palm sugar but this is entirely up to you. You can use white or brown sugar, either one you  still get perfect result. For extra nutritional boost, replace half cup of the flour with whole wheat flour.

Another brownies for you all. I just can't get enough of them at the moment. Not only because I happen to have a pantry full of their ingredients but also they are so easy to make and taste so delicious. This Eggless Coffee Brownies certainly take the cake.

There are so many brownies recipes out there and everyone has a favorite. I'm sure you have one that suits your taste. All these brownies have enough chocolate flavor but varying the amount of chocolate, butter, sugar and flour, the texture of each brownies is quite different.

I did minor changes to regular brownies recipe by adding  strong coffee. The contrast of flavor of this Eggless Coffee Brownies is extremely good.

POTATO PANCAKE



A fried flat cake of grated potato with onion and freshly ground black pepper. Treat yourselves to a delicious and  easy breakfast that was less spiced and much reduced fat.

After peeling the potato, soak then in water to avoid discoloration. Had  used my hand grater but food processor works fine.

This is an egg free version. The most important factor for perfect potato pancake was controlling the heat, high heat will make them browned so quickly but the center was uncooked. Mine done using medium heat.

These were surprisingly perfect.  Potato Pancake  are best served  hot and fresh immediately after you  have fried them.

When I bake a cake, I make sure to incorporate fruits into the batter, in this case I had used orange juice.  This Orange Cake is a dairy  free and egg free recipe.

It's amazing how this Dairy Free and Egg Free Orange Cake looks 'normal'. The texture is perfectly moist. There is a hint of orange that adds a mild   tanginess  to  the cake. I love how the orange juice perfectly compliments  the  flavor of cake.

The Dairy Free and Egg Free Orange Cake is  darn easy to make, you  don't need a mixer at all, simply combining the wet and dry ingredients to form into  thick but pouring  batter.

Make sure to preheat the oven prior to baking and  lightly grease  the cake pan.  Fill  only up to half  to give room for the batter to rise.

Pumpkin Galette is made by rolling out pastry dough into large round. The filling is placed in the center of the pastry. The dough is pulled up around the filling and folded over to create a rustic looking tart.

My crust was hand made but it could also be made using a food processor. Another thing, if you are pressed for time, you can always buy ready made crust from your supermarket.

CHOCOLATE FUDGE SLICE

Chocolate fudge slice recipe @ http://treatntrick.blogspot.com


Who can resist Chocolate Fudge Slice? This recipe was foolproof and pretty darn simple - just basic ingredients and egg free. It's better than any fudge I've ever tried.

I used 11 x 7 in rectangle pan, lightly buttered. The Chocolate Fudge Slice was easy to cut and remove from the pan. It's chocolatey and sweet enough to satisfy my cravings.

Meanwhile, a lot of vegetarian cookery books rely heavily  on eggs, especially for cakes, pastries and pudding. These recipes can be replaced  and the following should provide some ideas.

Eggs are used to bind a dish, when whipped, may  also incorporate air  making a cake very light. Many recipes can be adapted using one of the suggestions below.

Instead of one egg, you can use::

1 medium  mashed banana
1/4 cup apple sauce or pureed fruit  (avocado, pumpkin, squash)
1 tablespoon ground  flax seed + 3 tablespoon of warm water. Let stand 5 minute before using
1/4 cup pureed tofu

COCONUT CAKE

Coconut Cake Recipe @ http://treatntrick.blogspot.com


In the weekend, I set aside some personal time and baked this Coconut Cake. It is egg free recipe and truly fabulous. It is moist and smells so good loaded with shredded coconut.

In case  you  have self rising flour in hand, you can use it but omit the baking soda and baking powder also you can add an egg, lightly beaten  if you're not a fan of banana.

My sons took a bite and declared this Coconut Cake as  our delightful  new favorite.

There is no reason why you're not baking this cake. It is super easy, all you need was to throw the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl, mix well then  fold  in mashed banana, milk and vanilla extract. Stir to combine and  pour into prepared pan and it is ready to be baked in a preheated  oven for 20-25 minutes.
