Soymilk Jelly ~ 'Malaysian Monday no. 9'





Made this dessert to cool off in this cranky weather of hot, humid afternoons and evening showers ....... Soymilk Jelly with Rambutans stuffed with Pineapples!
The Rambutan, Nephelium lappaceum is  a fruit native to Malaysia and other South East Asian countries.
The word 'Rambutan' is derived from the Malay word 'Rambut' which means 'hair' and this refers to the spiky hair that covers the fruit.  These hairs are soft and harmless to touch.  The exterior of the Rambutan can be orange, deep red or even yellow in colour.  The whitish, juicy, sweet fruit can be released from the rind upon twisting it until it pops out.  There's a large seed in the middle and this must be discarded as it's poisonous.  Without the soft hairs on the rind, the rambutan resembles the lychee, which is in the same botanical family.  Read more about the Rambutan and other tropical fruits from this   'site'




Rambutans are not in season right now, so have to compromise with canned ones.  Picked one stuffed with pineapple for extra flavour.  I couldn't get fresh ones for the pictures, so please bear with me and make do with the picture on the can.



The rambutans are at the base of the ramekin and  I added some on top just before serving.



Mmmmm ..... so delicious once chilled!  Come, let me share this with you ..........  the recipe, I mean!

Ingredients
  • 1000 ml unsweetened Yeo's soymilk
  • 6 oz sugar
  • 10 gm or 4 tsp agar2 powder
  • 3 screwpine/pandan leaves
  • Canned  rambutan with pineapple - cut and drained off syrup or other fruits of your choice
Method
  1. Boil on low fire the soymilk, sugar and pandan leaves.  Keep stirring till sugar has dissolved.
  2. Remove the pandan leaves and add in the agar2 powder, keep stirring.
  3. Turn off heat.
  4. Scoop onto ramekins or jelly moulds and add in the cut fruits.
  5. Cool before chilling in fridge.
  6. Serve only after they have set.
Variation
  1. You can use the syrup from the canned fruits, use 500 ml syrup and 500 ml water or more syrup and less water, as long as there's 1000 ml of liquid.  Test for sweetness and adjust accordingly.

  1. I love this dessert too, and rambutans is one of my favourite local fruits but it's considered "heaty" so I tried to restraint myself.

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!

Marble Butter Cake ~ 大理石牛油蛋糕

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead. So glad to see that there weren't any cracks on the surface although it rose slightly in the middle.

Bika Ambon Panggang ~ 印尼糕

Kuih Bika Ambon or Honeycomb cake is an Indonesian dessert and from the outset it looks quite challenging to attempt baking this cake in order to achieve a honeycomb pattern.   There are many recipes online and I also googled for Indonesian recipes and watched the video on youtube.  I was looking for a recipe that is not so complicating but straightforward and I managed to come across Whattocooktoday's blog and found her recipe.  I was very delighted when the cake turned out to be a success.  Thanks, Marvellina!   Bika Ambon Panggang  ~   印尼糕 ( adapted from  'here'  with adjustments)   Ingredients for : - Yeast mixture 2 tsp dry yeast 1 Tbsp plain flour 1 Tbsp sugar 2 Tbsp warm water Coconut Milk 350 ml coconut milk 160 gm sugar 1/2 tsp turmeric powder 10 kaffir lime leaves (tear to smaller pieces) 2 lemon grass, bruised for flavour Cake Batter 180 gm tapioca flour 1/4 tsp salt 5 large eggs   Method Mix the ingredients in the Yeast mixture and set aside to let it ferment.
