lumberjack cake

thank you mr.internet.. thank you ms.worldwideweb.. thank you google-sir..
without you.. i would never come across the ever luscious red velvet cake..
without you.. i would never know lumberjack does exist in a CAKE-form!

apa yang saya tahu selama ni..
lumberjack ni.. term utk orang yg kerja 'logging'
zaman dulukala.. tatkala me'logging' guna kapak..
(terus terbayang matsaleh pakai baju kotak2 dgn jeans bawak kapak panjang)

anyway, back to the cake..
(which i couldnt find the source of history)
i made this cake out of curiosity - of the taste of course
(its fully loaded with fruits & topped with coconut mixture)
and for the farewell party one of the lecturers..
who has worked as hard as the lumberjack!




THANK YOU DR. RIZA!
& ALL THE BEST TO YOU!

  • 1/2cwn shredded coconut <-- saya guna 1cwn dessicated coconut
tatacara:
  1. panaskan oven 180C dan gris loyang springform 9inci.
  2. potong dadu/ kecil buah apple, kurma dan apricot. masukkan buah2 kedalam air panas dan masukkan soda. didihkan semula air.. tutup api setelah mendidih dan biar sejuk pada suhu bilik.
  3. pukul minyak, gula dan telur dalam mixer hingga kembang (dalam 3minit). masukkan esen vanilla.
  4. masukkan adunan buah tadi dan kaupbalikkan hingga sebati.
  5. ayak tepung, baking powder dan garam kedalam adunan dan kaupbalik hingga sebati.
  6. tuang kedalam loyang dan bakar 40-45minit.
  7. sementara kek masak, buat topping dulu: masukkan butter, gula, susu dan vanilla kedalam periuk kecil dan masak atas api kecil hingga butter cair dan gula sebati. masukkan coconut dan gaul sebati. tutup api.
  8. setelah kek masak, keluarkan kek dari oven dan ratakan topping keatas permukaan kek dan bakar lagi 20-30minit atau hingga keperangan.
  9. sisipkan pisau pada keliling kek dan buka springform pan perlahan2. 
  10. sejukkan kek pada suhu bilik sebelum dipotong.
update:
i got to taste just a bite..
wow! its moist & flavorful!
the tart-ness of the apples is covered by the sweetness of the dates
and the crunchiness of the topping makes it outstanding!
no wonder the lecturers literally licking their plate (ayat yg sgt over :p)
