New Year Banana berries muffin

First of all, I would like to say Happy New Year my friends ! Wish you all the best in 2009. I know it is a bit late to say it, but better late than never isn’t it ?^_^  Where have I been lately ? Poor my ‘kitchen’, it has been neglected for a while.  I went for a winter holiday in the first week of January, then came back and caught a terrible cold. The weather was so nasty to me. Shrinking to my bed, can not do anything. Think, it is the worst that I ever had.

The good thing is,  my husband has finished his study, so we are now busy packing to go back home for good at the end of this month. We are looking forward to go, but a bit sad really leaving this town. Lancaster has been  our second home. I will miss Lancaster for sure.  By the way,  I try to keep my kitchen updated in the middle of my packing 🙂

Now, I am back with full of energy and passion in the beginning of the year that full  of hope.  Here it is, the first post in new year 2009 : Banana Berries Muffin. This is not good looking muffin, but taste nice. Uhmm…I don’t know really what it went wrong , the picture’s quality is not really good 😦 I am sorry..

Have a good weekend my friends..:)


Salah satu dessert fave saya, Tiramisu.

Tiramisu (Italian: Tiramisù / Veneto: Tiramesù, IPA: [tirame’su]) is one of the most popular Italian desserts. It is made of savoiardi dipped in coffee and mascarpone cream. (wikipedia )


Tiramisu yang bisa berarti ‘pick me up’/ ‘lift me up’. Mereferensikan effect dari gula, cheese dan kopi dari kandungan dessert satu ini. Beberapa orang mencampurkan ingredients dengan brandy, marsala wine atau minuman alkohol lainnya untuk menghangatkan badan dan menaikan semangat.

Homemade Tiramisu saya ini tidak mengandung alkohol.  Hanya menggunakan coffee instant saja ^_^  juga tetap membangkitkan semangat:p.  Manuela teman saya yang orang Italy, ketika dia nyicipin tiramisu ala saya ini, katanya sih rasanya sama dengan Tiramisu yang sering di buat mamanya di kampungnya sana, heuhuhuhee…

Resep tiramisu ini saya dapat dari Yana *bless her*,  teman di Lancaster, dan saya modifikasi sedikit.

3 egg yolks

175g white sugar

1 pack / 250 g mascarpone cheese ( at room temperature )

1-2 pack lady fingers biscuit/sponge fingers

Instant Coffee

Cocoa for dusting

Semi sweet chocolate to make choc curl (optional )

for Whipped cream :

250ml  heavy/double cream

1tbsp vanilla sugar

1/4 cup caster sugar

or you can buy in supermarket a pot/carton ready use whipped cream:D * It’s me!:p*

1.  Whisk egg yolks and sugar in the bowl in the top of double boiler over boiling water. Stirring constantly until thick and lemon coloured. Remove bowl, set aside and let it cool.
