Malacca Food Trail.. The 2nd

“There ain’t the must-eat food in Malacca…. Are there…?”

Oh well, I am not an expert foodie for dine-out food, but I do have my minimal expectation and cravings for it. I am cook, ok, Home cook. :)

And, I wanted to revisit Malacca long ago, and dream only came true during this June holiday. We visited Malacca, for food, again.

Homemade Satay and Peanut Sauce Recipe

“Simple ingredients, for a good enough hawker treat at home.”

Satay, barbecued chicken on-stick, is one of the famous Singapore/ Malaysia hawker food that everybody loves!

I have always wanted to cook satay at home, but the extended peeling & chopping, blending and long simmering preparation put me off. Only until today, my satays are finally served on the dining table. It was simply for my son. He loved satay, but I was a little skeptical to let my 2.5yo son have much of the stall bought satays. No choice, hubby pressed me to cook it for son. I have to do it. :)

Super easy and fluffy Banana Yogurt Cake

“With some help from my girl, it took just 20 min of time preparing from scratch till it was sent to oven. Doing the baking alone? It probably takes you 30 min. Still, it’s fast!”

This recipe is definitely a keeper, especially if you have children, or you do like to eat like a child! :D

Moist, fluffy and yummy. It wasn’t too sweet for the palate. Still, delectable for both the adult and children.

The making method was adapted from a website, to turn an improvised cake from whatever I had in my kitchen pantry.
