I'm getting you the Malaysian Flavour Magazine together with a small booklet features the best food & where to get it in town. Will get to send it out tomorrow. Thanks Minkymoo76 for the magazine & the book.
I'll journal again after I tried out some recipes here. ***jump! jump! jump!**so excited***
Anyway, I did tried a few of the recipes and it turn out great & yummy. I tried the Yummy Scrummy Carrot Cake, Banana Cake, Dark Chocolate & Orange Cake. But my kids just loves the Banana & Lemon Muffin & the Blackberry Muffin (I replaced it with Blueberry instead. it's kinda difficult to find blackberries here.) I forgot to sign on the page of the recipes I tried.
I kept some cookies recipes to try on soon as Aidil Fitri is coming soon in September. It's good to have some different kind of cookies for Raya as the normal Malay cookies are served at every Malay's house during Aidil Fitri.
Thanks again for the bookring and I look forward to getting an address to send along a "foodie" mag. to you, Minkymoo.
Will mail tomorrow......
Edited on 4/5/08 - I've made so much more out of this book since getting my own copy. The pear/chocolate/hazelnut cake is divine! So are the banana walnut muffins. This has become the first book I grab when I want to bake.
10/15/07 - Mailing to StrangeEmily - she's in Greece, so I'm sending this surface rate, may take some time to reach her.
I found this little delicious book in my post box yesterday. I paged it at once and then I called my boyfriend in Thessaloniki (600 km from Athens). He is coming next weekend to Athens and we agreed we'll make the nutella and nuts cake when he's here, because he's a big nutella fan.
I want to try almost everything, especially the purely British ones, to remind me of my student years in the UK. Unfortunately I'm allergic to walnuts, something I discovered when I ate a delicious special cake from York!
Thank you LaRue for sending this book from so far away, and thank you Minkymoo 76 for starting this great idea!
Please send me your address for the Greek magazine (I'll try to find one in English language).
I found the cake with nutella irresistible and so did my partner! But my favourite was the apple, carrot and cinnamon cake.
The honey cake was good but it needed less eggs and maybe some nuts.
The last one I tried has a history now: it was the Chocolate Cinnamon Crumb Squares (page 86). I was distracted and forgot to add the flour (!!!) in the cake mix. I discovered this early enough and took the cake out of the oven, put it again in a bowl and mixed together the cale mix with the crumble topping mix, which was supposed to stay only on the top.
The result, however, was good!
We took the cake with us to a cafe in Athens, where Greek writers and journalists meet every Saturday. This time they had brought their children with them for a group photograph. That was a success! (The photo is of the place where these people meet)
The book is on its way to 061019Alexandra now!
But i'm 4 months sick/ill off it.
So i cant make a cake.
I have written some recepies down, and one day i will bake them.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Thanks for sharing Minkymoo76! And thanks to all other cooks for their comments! I will add mine too!
I really enjoyed browsing through the book and it was even better to try out the recipes. Made the nutella cake twice! We also tried the Banana Teabread, Choca Mocca Caramel Cake (YUMMY!!!!) and the Smarties Cookies. I did not make the cakes mentioned in my previous JE, but I ordered the book, so I will do that in future!
Sharing a recipe book and adding comments is great fun and I will go through my own books to see if there is one I can share as a bookring too!
Thank you for sharing - shame we couldn't all get together and share our baking too! :o)
CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:
Posted (at last) to timber77 in Canada.
My apologies for the delay, I was so caught up with moving house that I got behind with my bookcrossing.
I hope you enjoy the book as much I we did - scrummy!
I am ordering a copy for myself to keep!
A nice little size with tempting photos...I have a few recipes in mind already and will try some of the ones without a comment yet. Maybe some to make for Christmas visits, good timing!
CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:
Returning the book back to MinkyMoo after it travelled the globe and after trying several recipes. It is going by surface mail so hope it doesn't take too long.
I bought kitchen scales to help with the UK preference for weight measurements, made a mistake between Celcius and Farenheit, had trouble finding marzipan here even at Christmas, but in the end had some tasty treats! I have also copied out the scone recipe for my British husband so he can have a taste of home every once in awhile (he especially misses treacle sponge and custard!)
Thank you for sharing!!
