Blog Revamping

Hello... I'm in the midst of revamping my blog to make my life a little easier. So do not be alarmed as work is still under construction.

Sticky Date and Honey Slice

I was browsing for recipes and came across this Sticky Date and Honey Slice from New Zealand Women's Weekly magazine. Gave it a try and this was the result...

Dates Slice

Sorry for the lousy pic, it was heavily doctored due to bad lighting.

Anyway, I got interested with this recipe since it does not uses any sugar but honey, plus the method is super easy. The cake turned out very fluffy despite the heaviness of the dates. I find them better after storing in the fridge and also the type of honey will determine the flavour of the cake. My honey gave out a flowery scent which is kinda weird to go with this cake. So might have to experiment more with this recipe. If you're interested to have a go with this cake, you can find the recipe here.

hi,
been an avid reader of ur blog for ages n always found myself wishing that i could eat at the places tat u do. i will be vacationing at Genting and will be in KL for 1 day so would like to (pretty pretty pls) ask for ur recommendations for must eat places (halal) around Capitol Hotel,which is just opposite Lot 10. Don't want to waste my time eating substandard food,must make full use of the time/stomach space. Haha. i trust ur choices. Also is there anything (food,again) tat i shd buy to taste/bring back to Singapore? Tks a million....
