Un-fruitful Day... Sigh

I am quite upset actually.  I've read the recipe again and again but its a disaster.  A simple recipe but very tricky temperature and timing ... Its 200C and baked it for 5 to 8 mins only.  By 6 mins the side are oleidie brown but the top still wet so I have change it to top heat ... slightly before 8 mins, it got burn haiyaaaaaaah so wasted ... I think this recipe cannot make it lah cos its so tempremental and I have to 'jaga' oni... lots of 'chao-da' and cracks ... SIGH ..... I noe im not suppose to but arrrrggghhh its so frustrating ... after all that I end up with 1 miserable small bottle thats look ok and pretty lah.  My first batch I put 1/2 tsp of batter and 2 inch apart ... and it came out super big!!!! SUPER!!! ... so the rest I oni 1/4 of tsp.  Need new recipe so last mins haiz ... I dunno wat to bake oleidie .... eeeeeeeik ...
