再尝试:牛油蛋糕

对于烤蛋糕,我的成功率很低很低。
即使是很简单的海绵蛋糕,我都做得不好。
对于烤蛋糕,还真的有点却步。
不过,小瑜说星期六要烤蛋糕,好,那就烤吧。
反正就是尝试,再尝试,改进,再改进,还是会有进步的一天吧。

今天一口气就做了两次蛋糕。
第一次是根据Carol的这个磅蛋糕,只是我把糖的分量改成60克,也没放白兰地,也没放奶。而且,我放的是黑糖,所以烤出来是黑黑的,还真像巧克力蛋糕。

第二次是刚好在youtube看到的另一个类似的做法,只是牛油比较多。
Butter - 160g
Cake Flour - 140 g
Caster Sugar - 140g (我改成80g)
Baking Powder - 1/3 teaspoon
2 eggs
180c - 30-40 minutes

做法其实还真的蛮简单的。
1. 面粉 + 泡打粉 - 过筛
2. 奶油 + 糖 (糖分两次加入) - 用打蛋器搅拌
3. 加入蛋 (分两次加入) - 用打蛋器搅拌
4. 加入粉 (分两次加入)- 用刀搅拌
5. 烤!

做了第一次,第二次就比较熟手了。这一次是用没有分蛋的方法,下次试试看分蛋法。

这次做得还可以吧,至少像蛋糕。呵~~ 只是我觉得很甜。我比较喜欢第二个做法,下次得再把糖的分量再减一些。希望不会影响蛋糕的质感。^_^

I haven't been baking cakes for quite some time, as I have never successfully baked an edible cake.
My eldest son suggested to make Saturday breakfast as cake, so here we tried again.

We made two batches, and both tasted quite okay though I prefer the second batch which we used a different recipe.

I am surely going to challenge myself to bake again next week. Thanks to my son for the wonderful suggestion, so I can improve myself and everyone has cakes to eat! :D

#2:Write down 2017 goals



I commit to take the 21 Day End Paralysis Challenge by Mayi Carles.

Review of previous day:


I reviewed and even rewrote the notes I attended the two webinars:

Besides these two, I also found another goal setting guide from Mayi Carles - Bullet Proof Your Goal when I was browsing her blog. I just added some ideas to my goal setting plan. I also learned something great from Boho Berry, especially about how to do goal setting for bullet journal

So Day #1 was a good start!

#2: Write down 2017 goals

I have set December to be my planning & organizing month. It's already 11 December, so it's really time to get down to the plan.

I am going to write down my 2017 goals. According to what I have learned, these are what I should take note:
- It's advisable to be 7 - 10 goals for the year.
- must be specific, measurable and deadline assigned. e.g. Read 10 books by 31 December 2017
- List the reasons for having each of those goals
- Choose top 2-3 goals from the list

That's what I am going to do today!

Do you have anything you must do today?

#1: I want to review notes for planning for 2017


I commit to take the 21 Day End Paralysis Challenge by Mayi Carles.

Today is the first day. Though there are a few things I would like to do today, I pick one that I really want to do, and I will do it, no matter how. As I am 24/7 on call (taking care of a baby and two young children),  I can't promise I can do all I want to do for the day, so I am picking the one I really want to get it done.

#1: I want to review notes for planning for 2017

Yesterday, I have attended 2 webinars/video courses for planning for 2017 (Crushing It Mini-Course and 7 Steps for taking control of 2017). Today I am going to review and write down the notes, and start planning for 2017. Though I have some ideas in my mind and written down too, it's still good for me to review the notes I wrote and organize them well.

That's my to do today!

Do you have anything you must do today?

决定了要挑战自己,每天做一件自己答应自己的事情。

昨天,我看了两个webinars & video courses, 关于2017年的规划。我觉得都很好,所以打算今天要重新整理昨天所记录的笔记,然后开始计划我的2017。

虽然有很多想做,但因为我随时候命(要照顾一个宝宝和两个小孩),所以也不敢承诺太多。所以,每天承诺一项,让自己去做吧。当然,我的列单里还有其它的,可以做到还是会尽量去做。

今天的你,想要做到什么事情呢?

Great webinars for making 2017 a great year!


A new year is coming very soon, and I am in the mood of planning for 2017.

I finally got to watch the 4-day videos from Crushing It Mini-Course (from Living Well Spending Less), and also just attended the webinar  7 Steps for taking control of 2017 by Michael Hyatt. 

These two video courses/webinar about planning for 2017 are just great! I am really motivated and learn how to start planning for my new year too. Before watching these, I know I am going to make it different in 2017, as it's really time to start our official home school year, and I have some concrete ideas in my mind which I would really want to carry out. My baby is growing up (he is 6 months old now), so I suppose I will have more time to do some work, instead of carrying him all the time. 

If you would like to make your 2017 a great year, perhaps you can check these out (both are free):


Have you started planning for 2017? Are you ready for the new year?
