I'd just though I'd showcase photos of some of the ingredients here. Though they may seem normal for most bakers, I'm still excited because baking ingredients are quite expensive and we rarely spend a lot on them. I love seeing how much I have on hand to experiment and have fun with!
|Three different kinds of chocolate chips.|
Butterscotch, chocolate and uhm... black and white?
I love choc chips.
The three different kinds remind me of a recipe I saw at Bakerella's... hmm...
|Baking chocolate, but this isn't the bitter kind. There's a hint of sugar in it.|
I prefer the last kind that I bought. That you could eat on its own.
|Dessicated coconut- been sitting on the shelf for quite a long time. I should get to work and use them.|
Cornflakes- though I'd prefer Kellogg's, using these for baking should be fine.
|Ever since we moved to Kelantan, I buy most of my baking stuff at Barang Kita.|
It's a bakery store and it has quite a lot of interesting and of course useful stuff.
|Yes, halal gelatine!|
Please visit their website for more information.
|Brown sugar! |
I love working with brown sugar.
Recipes that use them somehow tend to produce better results! (I think)
And Ummi says they're a lot healthier than plain old granulated white sugar.
|And an assortment of flavourings, colourings and whatnot.|
|Hehe... messy. I should get around to arranging them.|
In the future I plan to share some stories about the ingredients that I use and where I purchase them. I'd like to write about my search for Halal certified products too. I hope the information will be useful for Muslims who (happen to, if they ever do, stumble upon and) read this blog. I also hope it will help non-Muslims understand better about why eating halal food is important to Muslims. You may have some Muslim friends, and you want to make something for them to eat. Well, I hope I can help you in my own small ways.
