Beat the butter and the sugar till butter turns creamy, put in the eggs one at the time ,put in the vanilla essences.
Beat till fluffy and pale.then put in the flour and the milk and beat till all mixed well.
Then put in the cake tin and bake in oven for 1 hour or till cooked in oven 200C
Add in 1 tbsp of cocoa powder (for marble cake)

4-day holiday is over

The 4-day holiday just over. 2 days PH plus 2 days weekend.  I had a enjoyable and relaxing holiday with my family.  We spend our time at our home sweet home.
I cooked kuah kacang and pork rendang to go along with nasi impit and ketupat palas on first day raya.  For pork rendang, I use the instant rendang paste from Mak Nyonya.  As for kuah kacang, I get the recipe from my friend.  For dinner, my mum cooked Laksa Sarawak again ! special request from my sister who fly back from Singapore for holiday.
On Friday, I make siew yoke.  I would said it is super easy to make and it is as nice as the one sell in chicken stall.  I like the crispyness of the skin and juicyness of the meat. Yummy !
