DahMakan1

My colleague and I tried out the healthy food delivery by DahMakan.com, above is beet with wild rice and roast chicken, very delicious and we wish there is more of that yummy yogurt as well, around RM16. Currently they have no delivery charge and no minimum order, so go try it. The greens are surprisingly very crisp and fresh. Not exactly cheap, but for this price and quality it is reasonable.

closed up shot, there are very generous with the chicken, a filling meal.

our second order, nice packaging and cutlery

DahMakan4

it is quinoa with roast chicken, about RM17, and we got 10% discount as we are repeating customers, very tasty as well. Only one kink is the delivery is supposed to be during noon till 1pm but it was delivered quite late around 1:30pm or so due to heavy Friday mid day jam. Nonetheless, we enjoyed the tasty meal and it is first time i tried quinoa, quite nice.

Recipe adapted from Food52’s Not too boring, Not Too Rich chocolate cake

Cake

1.5 cup(177g) AP flour (can replace half cup with wheat flour)
1.5 cup(130g)cocoaPowder
0.5 (100g)cup sugar
100g brown sugar (original recipe is 1 cup which is 200g)
Half tsp baking powder
Half tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 cup sour cream
Half cup milk
4 eggs
Half cup melted butter
1 tsp vanilla
80g  chocolate button (reduce from 1 cup (170g) bittersweetchoc chip)

Frosting (the frosting have been reduced proportionately from original recipe as i bought 2 bag of sour cream, each 200g, and already used 250g(1 cup) for the cake)
200g choc chip
150g sour cream

177 celcius
9*9 inch baking pan
Add wet ingredient into dry ingredient
Fold in choc chip
Bake for 50 minute

I am not sure whether the melted chocolate is not cool enough, or the sour cream is not room-temperature enough, but i sure have left the sour cream on counter top from 6pm and only came to making the frosting on 9pm, and the frosting sure doesn’t look shiny like those in Food52, is it called seizing of the sour cream due to difference of temperature between the melted choc and sour cream?

The chocolate-sour cream frosting is slight sourish, some might not used to it, but the tang kinda balance out the sweetness and making it not too sweet
