TCS ~ Toasted Almond Butter Cake

 Initially I choose a chocolate sheet cake but
decided to bake this almond butter cake in a sheet pan
which I made into a layered oblong sandwich cake
coated in a luscious cream cheese frosting!
there are toasted almonds and sweet coconut flakes
in the batter...
I forgot about the egg whites
but they got incorporated into the batter in the nick of time!

toasted almond butter cake ~ pg 84

FFwD ~ Seafood Pot-au-Feu

Other than substituting prawns for the mussels,
purple sweet potato for the spud
celery instead of leek
most of the ingredients were there,
shaped the Kelantanese red rice into balls
for want of something to do....
hubby's dinner
below was my portion in a mug
just love the color of the sweet potato
it was enjoyed by the fish-lover-hubby of mine!

***
Fresh Orange Pork Tenderloin:
made this dish using chicken breast instead of pork tenderloin
a packed lunch to work!

Another Rachel Khoo offering ~ Pea and sweetcorn fritters

this has frozen peas, corn kernels (I used canned)
eggs, rice flour as key ingredients.
go on... click the above link for the recipe!
 Above: hubby's portion - with a fried egg
below: mine with a poached egg (bad attempt at poaching!)
the avocado I used was unripe (found out only when I cut it open)
so it was frozen to be baked on another day
so served this with slices of cantaloupe
 this was dinner last Friday!
