So many cakes so little time.Baking and eating cake has to be one of life’s pleasures. Today a change from Nigel and Jamie, discovered on an internet wander Kitchen Tigress and her recipe for ogura cake – 相思蛋糕. Apparently “Ogura” is a Japanese surname and “相思” means lovesick though cake is from Batu Pahat, not Japan.
Kitchen Tigress promises that one day, she will tell us the story about Kak Faridah (who lived in Batu Pahat, of course) pining for her Japanese abang, Ogura-san (who died tragically but Kak Faridah didn’t know that), and why she baked a “lovesick cake”. Here the link if want recipe and curious to find out more.
Have a good day
