dear aunty Yochana

I hope you can help me on these
(1)When I bake cake, after baking it ( butter, chiffon...) do I need to store it in a tin after its cooled? Normally I wld leave it overnite in the open, and I found dat it tend to lose it moisture as the cake is dryer the next day..

(2)wat is emulco?

Hope u can clear my doubts on these, thanx once again aunty yochana...=D

Hi Aunty Yochana, I think i have lots of ques to ask you hehe... do you have any personal email so that I can email you with my ques if possible? If you prefer i leave msg in ur blog then is fine with me too. I wanted to ask if you know some of the recipe books only state flour and didn't specify what type of flour. I have an apple streusel pie recipe and it only state as flour, I don't know if I should use cake flour or plain flour for the base and the fillings.

Hope you can help me. Thanks a million!!

Hi Jeannie,

I much prefer questions through comments so that others can learn from there.

For pie pastry, pie base ....use Plain flour and for cakes, use cake flour.

Hi kikuta,

never leave your cakes in the open as it will dry up the cakes. Put it into a tupperware and cookies in the cookies container.

Emulco is a paste. There are many emulcos e.g. chocolate emulco, strawberry emulco, coffee, green tea , mango, orange, lemon...etc.

Can you share this recipe with me?
Btw, the nutmeg is it the fresh one coz I think quite difficult to get the fresh one here, any substitution?

Hi Carpe diem,

I used the whole nutmeg and grate it. You can buy the grounded nutmeg - McCormick brand.
