It supposed to be dry season in Caracas but it has been chilly and rainy and I've been struggling with flu. Last week hubby was ill then now me. No fever nor bad headaches nor running nose anymore but still coughing. Lucky me that I don't have to teach, so I just take it easy these days - YES, I'm counting the days until the summer vacation..woohooo...
Unfortunately I don't have books to read anymore - can't wait to be in Germany to buy books I have on my book list -, I stayed on sofa, watching telly and films, covering my self with a warm soft blanket and with a shawl around my neck. suddenly craved for a cake with cheese topping, just like I used to eat in Jakarta. For the cake itself it can be pandan cake, chocolate cake or mocha cake, spread with cream then top with grated cheese. Heaven! The recipe I used is Steamed Pandan Cake by Budi Sutomo.

250 gr plain flour
150 gr sugar (I only used 80 gr)
150 ml coconut milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pandan essence
Preheat oven to 350F or 180F
Beat the sugar, eggs and salt until stiff
Add the flour bit by bit and combine well using a wooden spatula. Add the coconut milk and pandan essence, combine well. Transfer the batter into a lightly greased baking form, bake for 20 minutes or until set. If you want to steam, it takes 30 minutes
You can change the pandan essence with vanilla or mocha or chocolate
