I already remember since last of June that at the beginning of July , it will be a big day for ayah, but, heloooooo.. This is what make me forget to update this blog also, I’m too busy for my work, my real work at office, Which sometimes, I bring it to home. It makes me stress-full, forget everything, losing my weigh *hey, this make me happy :D* plus making my emotion up side down just like an upside down pineapple cake 😀

Three days before ayah’s birthday, He asked us to join his office gathering at Anyer. We’ll going to the beach! Yeay…!

Arrived at anyer just perfect at 4 PM, Great time for playing since not too hot to enjoy the beach, We stay at beach home and it have a private beach, beautiful. Adib straight away to the beach and asked for him sand castle tools.

Me? Just watching adib, since I’m only bring one swim suit, Not like Ayah & adib  bring two pieces of swim suit. So i prefer to play on the next morning.

What I love most is watching the sunset, It really beautiful, relaxing moment.

The next morning, can’t take picture more, because it’s my beach time 🙂

Hey, enough with the beach! Back to what I’ve forgot about ayah’s birthday. Anyer and work make me forgot about it. It was July 4th (not America’s independence day :p ) , I just remember after work, when taking a bath! Silly wife 😀

Apple Bread Tart

Trying new recipe really fun, love when I saw from the first  time, it makes me in love with this bread, really love it 🙂

By the time I made this,  I thought it will be difficult, but, nope, it easy, simple , just be patient for the process. Got
the recipe from  here .

1 ¾ cups (245g) all purpose flour, sifted
pinch of salt
1 tablespoon caster sugar
1 teaspoon instant yeast
1 egg
½ cup (120ml) warm whole milk
2 tablespoons (28g) softened unsalted butter
2-3 eating apples
1/3 cup (67g)  Brown  sugar
½ cup (120ml) thick cream*

How to :
1. Place flour, salt, sugar and yeast into a bowl.
2. Whisk egg with milk and mix into flour mixture.
3. Work in butter and knead to a smooth, thick batter and elastic.
4. Place in a buttered bowl and turn to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and leave to rise in a draught-free place for 30
minutes. Knock back dough, then press it into a 22cm buttered pie plate or loose-bottomed flan pan, cover with plastic and  allow to recover for 30 minutes (it will have puffed  slightly).
5. Preheat oven to 225°C/437°F.
6. Peel apples, cored them and cut into eighths. Press apple  slices into the dough, and sprinkle with brown sugar.
7. Place pie plate/flan pan on a baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 200°C/395°F.
8. Spoon cream over apples and bake for 20 minutes. The top  should be slightly caramelized and the tart light and spongy.  Eat warm.

You can substitute apple with any kind of fruit you want.
