Homemade My Red Velvet

Halu  halu halu…………….. missed me?? * hmmm perasan la pulak minah sorang nie kan.. Anyway kembali bersiaran .. fuhh fuhh fuhh buang habuk2 nie dah lama x mengadap blog I nie.. I’m lil bit busy with my job.. lots and lots of outstation nowadays…Come I nak share kan resepi masakan I nie.. sebenarnya dah 2 minggu buat baru hari nie mampu untuk meng uplod gambo dalam nie.
The recipe is from Martha Stewart Wedding

Actually, this is my first try or Red Velvet. Almost everybody from cooking blogs is baking this lovely “Lady Red Velvet “.Day pass by and here the lady.. At first attempt, this is what happening:
Whether I mis-read the sentences or the recipe itself has the typo error where the temperature should be read as 250 degree FARENHEIT instead of 250 degree ________.So, without hesitation and confidently I set my little oven temperature to 200 degree Celsius. After the batter has been pour into the baking pan. I move the pan into the oven. 30 minutes cooking. …..  I’m so nervous to see the results…  TARAAAAAAA…… my cake became a Red Velvet “Volcano”… why…. Why.. why…. My mind is hardly thinking of the causes. Oh now only I re-read the recipe. It didn’t mention whether the temperature is in Farenheit or Celcius.
*Moral of the story here is always and always read and understands details and the important figure in recipe. Make a lil study on what are you doing (don’t be like me... just browse twice and eagerly start mixing the ingredients) – even the most famous Celebrity chef made mistake OK.. J

And my 2nd attempt for this Lady Red Velvet is last 2 weeks. Alhamdulillah.. it turns out fine…
