113g unsweetened chocolate; coarsely chopped - Kak Rima used 55% valrhona (I used normal choc)
96g unsalted butter, cut into cubes 250g sugar 3 large eggs 1 tsp pure vanilla extract 1/4 tsp salt 120g all-purpose flour 12 Ferrero Rocher candies, sliced in half
For the Nutella Buttercream:
60g unsalted butter, softened 1/3 cup Nutella 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 150g confectioners' sugar (icing) 2 tablespoons heavy cream
1. Preheat oven to 165deg C. Line an 8×8 inch baking pan with foil and spray
with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Microwave chocolate and butter in a large bowl microwave-safe bowl at medium
(50% power) for 3-4 minutes or until butter is melted - i melted butter and
pour it over my valrhona
3. Stir until chocolate is melted. Whisk in sugar, eggs, vanilla and salt.
Gradually add in flour; stir until just combined.
4. Spread 1/2 the batter into prepared pan. Add an even layer of Ferrero Rocher
candies and cover with remaining 1/2 of brownie batter. Bake for 30
minutes; do not over bake.
5. Remove to cooling rack to cool completely.

cream the butter and Nutella until fully combined. Add in the vanilla extract,
confectioners' sugar and heavy cream and mix on low speed until all sugar is
incomporated. Turn mixer to medium-high speed and beat the frosting for about
to minutes. The frosting will be thich, smooth and creamy. Frost cooled
brownies and slice before serving.
Not your normal Hari Raya dish but my mom requested for 2 medium trays of shepherd's pie.
I also have some friends asking for this recipe ... I like to make changes from time to time cos there's no right or wrong shepherd's pie. This recipe has gone a lot of changes ... in school, Secondary 2 to be exact, it was a super basic pie ... its just potatoes season with salt and pepper, filling was minced chicken, onion, garlic, salt and pepper and abit of butter to finish off ...
So you see this recipe has evolve for the passed 16yrs ... and I kept adding more ingredient to the recipe ... to make it AWESOME!
Boil potatoes for 1 to 1 1/2hr depending on the quantity and size of the potatoes
Once cooked, drained and peel the jacket (if you boil together with the jacket). Season with salt and pepper. Butter and milk are optional. Mashed and mix till smooth or leave bits and pieces of chunks are ok too.

For this coming Raya ... this is the only cookies I made (want to send to LA ... fuuuh I've never been to LA before but my cookies will reach there anytime soon... LOL!). Cos MIL has her stash for Raya goodies and my friend, Nurul gave me Cornflakes Macaroons. I do not want to bake more cookies cos last year was such a waste. So I am contented with small amount of goodies this year.
But ... this year I will try some of the cake recipes that I saw online. I hope it turns out well lah.
250g salted butter,softened (i used SCS)
200g light brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp coffee oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup oats,processed to bits in a chopper (i put nestum instead)
1/4 cup ground almonds (i omit this)
1/2 cup of your favourite nuts,chopped finely (optional)(i put in
1 pack of Nestle Tollhouse semi-sweet chocolate chips OR chocolate
300g self-raising flour
This is the most important step,at least 2 hours before,or the night
before,beat the egg with the vanilla and the coffee oil to infuse or you can do
this the night before,refrigerate it then bring it to room temperature before
Preheat oven to 160C.
To the softened butter,beat in the sugar and the salt to combine. Beat
in the egg and stir in the processed oats,ground almonds,optional chopped nuts
and the chocolate chunks. Sift the flour and fold it in,this dough will not be
too stiff but not too wet either.
For small cookies,place half-tsp of the dough,spaced slightly apart on
the cookie sheet and bake for 9 to 10 minutes.
For large cookies, place rounded tbsp of the dough spaced apart on the
cookie sheet and bake for 20 to 22 minutes.
Cool completely and let it sit overnight in an airtight container,this
is for the flavour and fragrance to develop further.
