The first menu is Coffee pound cake with walnuts. I am glad to be sharing this recipe with those of you who like drinking coffee^^. Most of my pound cake recipe uses sugar-butter method, but we bake this pound cake in a different way. We will be using coffee powder for the pound cake.

The scent coming out from the oven is so… nice!

The second item is Blueberry Cheese Tart. The parts are consisted of; pate a sucrecreme d’amande, blueberry jam, creme double and crumbs. If you have stored pate a sucre and creme d’amande in the fridge, this cake can be baked with almost no work!

March 2017 Class Schedule*

21 Feb

dsc_0990-copy

Hi there! Today I would like to post March 2017 class schedule! (Here is the class Calendar)

March 3rd is Children’s day in Japan for girls, called “Ohinamatsuri“. Japanese families with daughters put up Ohinamatsuri dolls in their houses for a month, and celebrate with special dishes such as chirashi-sushi, clam soup and strawberry cake. Each of the dish and ingredients have special meaning. For instance, having clam (hamaguri) in the soup is a wish for the girl to find her perfect soulmate, like the two identical shells of a clam!

I also put out Hinamatsuri dolls for my daughter in early February ^^.

To celebrate this event, I would like to make Fraisier, a French style strawberry cake. I also am conducting Yakigashi Special class, since school holiday is coming soon. The simple and delicious yakigashi will fill you and your family’s stomach! I believe that this can also be one of the options for the coming Ramadan baking season too!

Carrot Cake*

We are having American Sweets Special class tomorrow! It’s been a while since I conducted (Season) Special Class! Special class is always fun with many things going on^^… And the menu for this class will be everyone’s favorite; Blueberry Muffin, Carrot Cake and Cinnamon roll!

The photo is one of our menu – Carrot Cake. I have taught this cake a few years ago in children class, but made some change to suit our adult taste. Well, kids will sure love this taste too as my 3 year old daughter proves it!

I was testing the cake many many times and was also thinking what shape to bake with… square? round? or mini?

Many of my students commented mini size is cute! But I also like the round shape as the first photo. Doesn’t it look delicious?

Carrot cake is quite a popular item in cafes in Malaysia and it’s mostly a large round size with cream cheese frosting. Mine is also cream cheese frosting but my cake size will be cute Japanese 15cm size!

I personally like cinnamon spice, so put some cinnamon, walnuts and cranberry in this cake. It’s lovely and delicious cake…^^

Caramel Nuts Tart* Premier Class

Good morning!

Oops I just realized that I haven’t written a post on this month’s Premier Class! The menu is Caramel Nuts Tart and Sable Mandian.

Caramel Nuts Tart is something like the one in the center of this photo! We will make pate sucre (tart crust), creme d’amande (almond cream) and caramel walnuts on top! There is also a hint of hazelnuts taste in the almond creme part. This time we will bake them in 10cm size and each of you get to bring back 6 pieces of them!

Tart is personally my favorite and I am excited to introduce it to you again!

 

 

Another menu is Sable Mandian, which is a cinnamon spice nuts cookie. This is also my personal favorite. Yes, it’s one of the photos that were introduced in Inspirasi Perkahwinan June issue!

We will decorate it with something called pate macaron and various nuts!

This can be Hari Raya gift cookies…^^?

Japanese Bread Lesson*

19 Apr


Starting from this weekend, I’ll be introducing bread lessons! As I briefly introduced to you in my previous post, you’ll learn how to make various kinds of japanese breads step-by-step over many sessions. We have table roll, sausage roll, bagels, pumpkin bread, snow white bread, and many other breads. It’s good to learn all in progress but if you’d like to try just one session, of course you can do that too!

<Session 1>

This is a picture from Session 1: Table Roll – Sausage Roll & Ham and Cheese Roll.

This is a basic type of bread, yet the dough making part is quite fun and lots of things to learn! During the class we will make two kinds of bread; sausage roll and ham & cheese roll but this bread can be applied to various kinds of breads!

The class dates are;

April 21st (Sat.)   10:30am-1:30pm

May 19th (Sat.)    10:30am-1:30pm

May 25th (Fri.)   10:30am-1:30pm

Fee: RM130 (RM115 for members)

<Session 2>

Session 2 is Bagels!

You will learn two types of bagels: Chocolate Walnuts Bagel & Cranberry Honey Bagel.

I personally like bagels! It’s is harder than the normal bread but chewy and very nice if you know how to appreciate this texture^^. And the good thing is this bread is easier to make than the other breads because the proofing time required is less. You can also change the toppings inside!

The dates for this class are;

April 21st (Sat.) 2:30pm-5:30pm

May 19th (Sat.) 2:30pm-5:30pm

May 25th (Fri.) 2:30pm-5:30pm

Fee: RM130 (RM115 for members)

So do you want to bake breads for your family breakfast^^?

Both classes are still available. To sign up please email or sms: caramelmoko@gmail.com / 012-352-3106(Tomoko).  Thank you very much and I’m looking forward to hearing from you!!!
