This bread pudding is my own creation. I tried once and the result turned out to be excellent and my children loves it so much. I was then noted down the 'recipe' and made it over and over again. I then stopped for many months and when I tried again to recall the recipe from my brain and made do with whatever that I could remember, the result turned out to be very bad. I referred back to my recipe and I just realized that I missed the water portion from the ingredients list that made my bread pudding turned to be so hard to chew ;)

8 slices of sandwich bread
1 can of evaporated milk
1 can of water (use the same evaporated milk can)
3 eggs - lightly beaten
4 tbsp of sugar
3 slices of cheddar cheese - tear to small pieces butter (for spread)

caramelized sugar

1. Spread caramelized sugar to the bottom of the mold
2. Slice bread to triangle shape
3. Spread butter to each slice
4. Arrange bread slice to the mold till finish
5. Pour evaporated milk, water, and egg to the bread.
6. Sprinkle sugar to the mixture.
7. Arrange cheddar cheese pieces on the top.
8. Sprinkle with raisins.
9. Leave the mixture for 30 min to let the liquid to be absorbed by the bread.

Chicken Soto

I hailed from Johor where most of the state's early settlements came from neighboring country, Indonesia. Soto is one of the dish that originites from Indonesia but has been modified to suit local's taste. I grew up having soto as my favorite dish. Unfortunately, being picky me I could not find the one that suites my tastebud's best. I still wanted the one that have the memory of my childhood but could not find one from all that I have tasted in Klang Valley. Left with no choice, the best way is to do it myself. I would say, it has 90% of the original ones that I always have during my childhood years.

For your eyes' feast first. Recipe is coming soon.......

Tasteful Daim Cheesecake

Cheesecake is always a favorite in my family. Whereas, Daim chocolate is a must buy souvenir whenever my husband travels oversea (worst case, the children's favorite chocolate would be bought at airport's duty free shop). My children addiction to Daim chocolate goes back to 10 years ago when my husband made a frequent trip to Sweden. Since then, the whole family were addicted to Daim chocolate.

The combination of both favorites make this cheesecake a special ones for the family. If you are unable to get Daim chocolate, it can be substituted with other type of chocolate that has toffee filling. I would find Heath bar is the closest to Daim since I could not find Daim when I was in the US.
