Banana Chocolate Cake With Cranberry

Pin It
Banana Cake is always an old-fashioned family favourite when comes to tea-time or gatherings. I love it's unique fragrant release from the cake that kept lingering in your mouth after eating as well it also contribute extra points to the texture of the cake.

We also have quite a few of our favourite banana cake recipes such as "Banana And Oreo Muffin ", "Spongy Banana Cake" and "Cranberry And Banana Walnut Cake" which you might be interested to take a look too. 

(using Happy Call Pan)

After the two cake recipes that I have tested using Happy Call Pan(HCP), I decided to try whether I could apply normal cake recipe using this pan instead of oven. So I made this Banana Chocolate Cake with Cranberry which inspired from the latest banana cake recipe(HERE) that I have shared a few weeks back. Although the cake did not rise as high as what I expected compared to oven bake but the overall texture and taste of this cake is very well-received. Many who tried (during the blind taste test) didn't even realise that this cake is actually bake using HCP instead of oven.

(Makes: 30 x 25cm | Preparation: 10 minutes | Cooking: 30 minutes)

225g All-Purpose Flour(plain flour)
170g Unsalted Butter, room temperature
170g Caster Sugar
2 Eggs(55g each)
2 Large Ripe Banana, mashed
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Pinch of Salt
30ml of Milk
100g Dark Chocolate, chopped
60g Dried Cranberry
2 Tablespoons of RUM
1 Extra Banana for topping, optional

1. Soak Cranberry(roughly chopped) with 2 Tablespoons of RUM for about 10 minutes. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in a bowl and set aside.

2. Cream soft butter and caster sugar using a electric beater or hand whisk till pale and creamy.

3. Add one egg at a time together with vanilla extract, beat till combined before stirring in the mashed banana and cranberry mixture. Mix well.

4. Using a spatula, fold in sifted flours in 3 batches alternatively with milk till well combined. Lastly stir in the chopped chocolate.

5. Slowly scrap mixture into the lightly greased Happy Call Pan(grease 1 teaspoon of oil on both side of the pan using hand or paper towel). You can also add some banana slices on top of the batter before baking to enhance the look and taste.

6. Bake on low heat for 12 minutes, slowly shift the pan towards right side so that left side (1/2 of the HCP) of the pan is on the heat, bake for another 6 minutes. Next shift the pan back towards the left side so that right side(1/2 of the HCP) of the pan is on the heat. (the purpose of doing this is to even out the baking as well as give the cake a nice brown colour on the surface when flip over)

7. Lastly, flip the HCP over and bake for another 6 minutes(3 minutes left, 3 minutes right) to have a nice brown top.

1. Follow steps 1 - 4, pour cake batter into a greased 7" square or round tin.

2. Bake in preheated 180° Celsius oven for about 40 - 50 minutes or when a skewer inserted in the center and comes out clean.


Lastly here is a snack preview of the Double Chocolate Banana Cake made using similar recipe above with a slight twist.Will update more recipes on my HCP bakes and dishes soon. Stay tune.

Double Chocolate Banana Cake

Continue from my previous post on the Banana Chocolate Cake With Cranberry this double chocolate version is definitely with excitement! I made this Double Chocolate Banana Cake because it consists two of my boy's favourite ingredients which are "Banana" and "Dark Chocolate" and they definitely pairs well. If you want to impress your guests with something rich, soft and moist and quick for afternoon tea perhaps you can try baking this using either oven method or my super Happy Call Pan!

Buttermilk Cereal Chicken

Pin It
Some of you might notice that I have being "working hard" on my experiments(more recipes HERE) with the Happy Call Pressure Pan(HCP). By the look of the photo above, could you believe those golden and crispy drumlets are NEITHER deep-fried or oven baked!

Yes, for your information these yummy Buttermilk Cereal Chicken is done using HCP without deep-frying or bake. With just minimum amount of oil to grease the pan, you would be able to prepare more healthy and delicious food for the family. In this post, I would be sharing the recipe for this Buttermilk Cereal Chicken using HCP and Oven.

Above shows the comparison of Buttermilk Cereal Chicken done using Happy Call Pressure Pan (HCP) via  Oven Toaster base on the recipes shown below.

(Using Happy Call Pan Method)

Look at these golden drumlets with yummy cornflakes coating, isn't it make you crave for some upon looking at it now? These super easy finger food would be something worth trying during weekend if you have some "stock-up" cornflakes in the pantry. And I assure you this definitely taste better than those deep-fried chicken from those fastfood restaurants.

(serves: 2-3 | Preparation: 10 minutes | Cooking: 20 minutes)

6 Chicken Drumlets
1.5 Cups Cornflakes
1 Teaspoons Ground Paprika
1 Teaspoons Grated Lemon Rind
Pinch of Salt
1/4 Cup Plain Flour
3/4 Cup Buttermilk
Olive Oil Cooking Spray
Some Salad Greens, to serve

1. Using your hands gently crush cornflakes into crumbs, add in paprika, lemon rinds, pepper, salt and stir until well combined.

2. Place flour and buttermilk in separate shallow dishes. Coat chicken drumlets one at a time with flour, shaking off excess before dipping in buttermilk.

4. While the drumlets are still moist (this will enable the cornflake crumbs to cling), coat it one at time in cornflakes mixture, pressing on with fingertips to secure the crumbs.

5. Place drumlets on preheated HCP (light brush the pan with cooking oil and preheat on low heat for 30 seconds) with pan lock and cook over very low heat for 5 minutes before flipping the pan over for another 5 minutes.

6. Rotate the pan a few times (cook about 20 minutes) or until golden and cooked through (leave the pan unlock for the last 5 minutes to achieve crispy outer skin). Serve with some salad greens.

- If you have time, marinate the chicken with some extra Ground Paprika(1 teaspoon), lemon rind and 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice for about 30 minutes.

~ You can cut a slit on the drumlets to enable the meat to cook faster.

(Oven Baked Method)

For those who don't own a Happy Call Pressure Pan, you could also try out this recipe using either Oven Toaster or normal Oven and the end-result is equally good. Just for a note, the outer skin of the chicken will remain crispy for an hour or so if use Oven baked compare to HCP which need to be consume as soon as possible.

(serves: 2-3 | Preparation: 10 minutes | Cooking: 30 minutes)

6 Chicken Mid-joint
1.5 Cups Cornflakes
1 Teaspoons Ground Paprika
1 Teaspoons Grated Lemon Rind
1/4 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Pinch of Salt
1/4 Cup Plain Flour
3/4 Cup Buttermilk
Olive Oil Cooking Spray
Some Salad Greens, to serve

1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Line baking tray with baking paper and set aside.

2. Using your hands gently crush cornflakes into crumbs, add in paprika, lemon rinds, pepper, salt and stir until well combined. Set aside.

3. Place flour and buttermilk in separate shallow dishes. Coat mid-joints one at a time with flour, shaking off excess before dipping in buttermilk.

4. While the mid-joints are still moist (this will enable the cornflake crumbs to cling), coat it one at time in cornflakes mixture, pressing on with fingertips to secure the crumbs.

5. Place mid-joint prepared tray and lightly spray/brush with cooking oil.

6. Roast for 30 minutes(turning twice) or until golden and cooked through. Serve with some salad greens.

My family loves this crispy buttermilk chicken which is so flavorsome with it's tasty, tender and juicy meat together with the crispy and hint of spiciness on the outer skin. This is sure a good finger food to be serve during parties which goes well with sparking wine or beer.

{Happy Call Pan Version} Apple Upside-down Cake

Pin It
The Happy Call Pressure Pan (HCP) craze kept burning among Happy Call Chefs who contributes many wonderful recipes at Munch Ministry website as well as their HCP discussion group over at facebook. After my 1st successful attempt on baking the Pineapple Upside-down Cake using HCP I decide to use the same recipe with a twist to make this Apple Upside-down Cake since we have some granny smith sitting in the fridge compartment.  

(using Happy Call Pan)

This is indeed something that I am looking forward to serve as tea cake especially that soft layer of Apple and light Cinnamon fragrant that is sitting beautiful on top of the cake. The caramel is not too sweet and it definitely brings out the unique taste of this cake together with layer of texture from the apple, walnut and raisin.

(Make: 30 x 25cm | Preparation: 10 minutes | Cooking: 20 - 25 minutes)

180g Plain Flour
3 Teaspoons Baking Powder
4 Large Egg(60g each)
90g Caster Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Grated Rind of 1 Lemon
60ml Unsalted Butter, Melt
60ml Grape Seeds Oil

Caramel Apple:
50g Unsalted Butter
100g Brown Sugar
50ml Water Water
2 Green Apple, skin remove and cored
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon Powder
50g Walnut
60g - 80g Golden Raisin

1. To prepare the Caramel Apple; sliced the apple into about 0.5cm thick, lightly marinate it with lemon juice and cinnamon powder. Set aside.

2. Simmer unsalted butter and brown sugar over low heat in HCP until sugar dissolve and mixture begins to bubble. Sir in marinated apple slices, water and continue to simmer over low heat for another 3 - 5 minutes till apple slightly soften. (Pan close but don't lock it)

3. When done, turn off the heat and arrange the apple, walnut and half of the golden raisin as close as possible without too much gaps in between. Set aside and prepare the cake batter.

4. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar and vanilla extract with a hand mixer till well-mixed(about 1 minute) and mixture slightly turn pale in colour (you can refer to the step-by-step photo above).

5. Next whisk in the melt butter, grape seeds oil and follow by the sifted flour mixtures(plain flour + baking powder) and continue to stir until the flour is in-cooperate into the batter (the batter will be slightly like thick cream texture) before stirring in the remaining golden raisin(lightly coat raisin with flour so that it wont sink during baking)

5. Pour the mixture over the prepared caramel apple, smooth the top and bake(lock the pan) over very low heat for about 23 - 25 minutes(usually you will see steaming coming out when cake is ready) or until a skewer inserted and come out clean.

6. Carefully flip the pan over and bake the top of the cake for another 5 minutes to brown the top before removing it from stove.

~ You can also bake this Apple Upside-down Cake in the oven at 180 degree for about 40 - 50 minutes using an 8" round tin.

As I have mentioned before this is a very easy to prepare tea cake which can be done within 30 minutes if proper preparation is done before hand such as weighing the flour, sugar and replace melted butter with oil. So while catching up with your guest you could just pop into the kitchen and get ready the batter to bake this cake. And most importantly you need not need to be around the stove to look after the cake. All you need to do is set the timer on and check it out after 20 minutes of baking time. Remember on very LOW heat.

Lastly I would like to share with you a good new. I have won an interesting cooking book know as "Pork Appetite - 猪圆玉润" from the January Happy Call CookOff Challenge organised by Munch Ministry. You can take a look at the entries HERE

{Horrible Act} I Demand A Fair Judgement!

Chinese version of this post on 什么是侵犯版权 HERE.
My mood was badly affected since yesterday after seeing a link posted over at "Munch Ministry - Happy Call Group" at facebook. The link was featured by regarding purchase of Happy Call Pan (link HERE). I was shock to find this link after reading the comments over at the Happy Call Group (as the members mentioned the featuring HCP photos are very familiar to their eyes) because those photos featuring in the advertisement are ALL mine except one of it. And the worst nightmare is the Merchant from "Everything Korean" actually crop and ERASED my watermark and replaced it with their in order to claim the right of the photos. As a food blogger who love to cook, snap photos and devote most of my time in blogging I am really upset over this issue.

So after some thoughts, I decided to post some comparisons photos from the featured links with my original photos over at Cuisine Paradise facebook page (HERE and HERE) as well as and Everything Korean facebook page to create awareness this misused of photos and copyright issue. But sad to sad, both and Everything Korean REMOVED comments posted by me and some of readers without even giving us a clarification on this issue. I am not trying to crate any problems for those parties involved, what I demand is a fair judgement for my STOLEN photos.

Above are some stolen photos of mine featuring at Happy Call Pan Deal which watermarks have being ERASED and replace by the Merchant's "EVERYTHING KOREAN" watermark. You can compare the above photos with my original photos below. They look 1000% exactly the same as my original photos!!!! 

Original Photo from Happy Call Double Sided Pressure Pan - 韩国双面锅 HERE with my copyright watermark "©Cuisine Paradise".

Original Photo from Happy Call Double Sided Pressure Pan - 韩国双面锅 HERE with my copyright watermark "©Cuisine Paradise".

After my emails addressing to plus leaving comments at their facebook page, they finally replied my email this morning addressing that they are in the process of taking down the pictures and they would also look into the matter with the merchant. But my replied to them is to demand them to REMOVE all  my related photos with IMMEDIATELY effect and yet they only remove 2 of the photos featuring my Happy Call Dishes which is shown on the comparison photos below plus they also STOP the featuring deal.

Emails from the person in-charge of "Everything Korean" after see "comments" over at their facebook (which had being removed by them) and as well my emails to From his emails I feel that he is not sincere (as he should seek my concern before using those photos) with his words and after my replied to him to remove all my related photos from with IMMEDIATE effect he did not even bother to reply my email at all till now.

So with all the above, it is sad to say that these people are really unprofessional in handling such case and I did not received any further clarifications or apologise from either or their merchant till date.

First photo above featuring two of my  Happy Call Dishes whereas 2nd photo below has remove the dish photos after my receiving pressure emails and feedback from my supporting readers and friends. But then they still did not remove the rest of the relating photos which you can still see from their link HERE.

My original photos of the above dishes which can be found at Claypot Rice and Sizzling Tofu Post HERE.

Another online deal from "Everything Korean" using my photos featuring at Singapore Bestsite.

Lastly one of my reader from facebook also mentioned that "Home Idea" has taken a photo of mine shown above (link HERE) without my permission, concern or knowledge.

Home Ideas added another some photos and recipes of my Happy Call Pan dishes to their facebook page without my approval. {Updated on: 04 April 2012) Although they have removed all related photos and recipes but this screen captured will remains to act of warning for future theft.

My Happy Call Recipes Post is upload with exactly the same format and words over at Happy Call in Singapore and Malaysia website without my approval or consent. {Updated on: 06 April 2012)

I really hope whoever out there who have done this kind of shameless act please spare a thought for blogger(s) like us who spent time and effort working on food photos and write-up in order to share and benefit our readers. We food blogger(s) are not those who can be easily BULLY so please don't take what we do for granted. If you really likes our photos or required any information, you can just seek for our concern on using the photos of information. Please don'tSTEAL and CLAIM whatever that is not belong to you as YOURS. If you are doing so, it is equivalent like STEALING without my approval.


Email received from management regarding the above issue. Glad that Richin Desai, VP, Marketing and his team has finally removed all my related photos pending to this copyright issue.

Dear Friends and Readers,

If you happen to see any of my photos from this blog being used without proper credit or like this issue, watermark being replaced unlawfully, please leave a comment or email me with details. So that in a way I could contact them as well as posting their shameless act over at this blog/facebook page. Thanks for all the supports.

Coke Pork Ribs ~ New Version!

This is one of the few dishes I have learnt through a parenting forum (Mum4Mum) when I first started blogging in 2005. At that time this Coke Pork Ribs and Coke Chicken Wings are one of the famous dishes among the forum members and related food bloggers. And if you have follow most of my posts from that time you might have tried this Coke Pork Ribs recipe which used "Char Siew Sauce" as one of the ingredients.

Recently, Derrick from sgfoodonfoot has cooked the Coke Chicken Wings using Happy Call Pan (HCP) and it definitely brings back my memories and inspired me to cook this Coke Pork Ribs again which shown in this post.

(using Happy Call Pan)

This is a very quick and easy finger liking dish where you can use either spare ribs or chicken wings as one of the main ingredients. But for us, we prefer spare ribs compared to chicken because of it's texture and taste which is similar to Pai Gu Wang(排骨王). And if you prefer a darker brown colour spare ribs, you can add an additional 1/2 tablespoon of dark soy sauce while simmering with the coke and its sugars content would give a deep glossy coating and caramelized flavor to the end products.

(Serves: 2-3 | Preparation: 30 minutes | Cooking: 30 minutes)

500g - 600g Prime Pork Ribs, cut smaller pieces
1 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Black Pepper
1/2 Tablespoon Honey
1/2 Tablespoon Dark Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoon Light Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoon Cooking Wine
1/2 Tablespoon Sesame Oil
1/2 Tablespoon Cornflour
1/2 Can Of Coke(Coca-Cola)

1. Rinse and pat dry spare ribs. Add in all the above ingredients except Coke and marinate it for at least 30 minutes or overnight in the fridge.

2. Arrange marinated spare ribs on HCP, cover and cook for about 2 minutes on each side before adding in half can of Coke.

3. When the mixture comes to boil, cover and lock the pan. Simmer the spare ribs on the lowest heat for about 30 minutes or till sauce thicken and meat is tender.

4. Half way through the cooking time, you could add extra 1/2 tablespoon of dark soy sauce to darken the colour of the spare ribs. (remember to flip the HCP a few times during cooking in order to give the spare ribs an evenly colour coating)

5. When done, remove spare ribs from pan and garnish it with some chopped spring onion and sesame seeds. Serve hot with steamed rice.


~ You can also use any Non-stick Pan for this recipe instead of Happy call Pan.

Till then have a great weekend everyone! Catch up again with more NEW recipes next week. Cheers!

Blueberry Lemon Butter Cake

Nothing beats a slice of fragrant Butter Cake which is infused with lemon aroma together with bits of bursting blueberries in your mouth. To be honest, among all the different types of tea-cake, I simply adore butter cake especially those that are lightly infused with lemon fragrant.

If you still remember, a few months back I have shared two recipes on these "Lemon Yoghurt Butter Cake" and  "Chocolate Yoghurt Butter Cake" which is a hit for our family and friends. We love both version of the cake despite of either plain or chocolate.
