first baking attempt

counting down to 2013 is more progressive with this first attempt to bake. since we bought our new oven for Christmas, what more fun to use it to baking. for a muffin recipe turned into a cake, i also made a new twist by adding grated bitter gourd and carrots.
here are the ingredients to my first baking project:
4 cups of flour
8 eggs
8 teaspoons of baking powder
pinch of salt
1 cup of pineapple juice
3 cups of brown sugar
4-5 teaspoons grated bitter gourd and carrots
1. preheat oven for 20 mins at 175 degrees.
2. mix the eggs, sugar, pineapple juice well. set aside.
3. mix all dry ingredients together (flour, baking powder, salt) and combine it with the wet ingredients. also add the grated bitter gourd and carrots.
4. put the mixture in the oven and bake for 30 mins or until the top is brown and not burnt. use a toothpick to check if the inside is already baked. serve.


  1. I am intrigued by the bitter gourd (ampalaya)- how did that work out?

    1. it is just little bits blanched in water and salt to take the bitterness out. also, the cake mixture overpowers the ampalaya's taste.
