The weather here has been gloomy for almost a week now. The current season is summer but it feels like autumn right now. It's been raining and the temperature been very cool. I am not complaining cos I am not an outdoor person. In fact I really enjoy this kinda weather, just that its a nuinsance when I want my washing dry hehehez :D complain....complain....
Anyway, we got invited to Auntie Eton's (one of the expat Singaporean that I am really closed with) house for a kenduri. Her mom passed away at the age of 87yrs old (if I am not wrong).....40 days ago. I made 3 different kind of desserts to be brought over to her house later.
The first one that I made was this yummy fruit cake. Its so easy to make, I call it a 1 pot wonder cake hehehez. I've made it like almost 10 times before, this is the 1st time that I am putting it up in this blog. As usual, hb whom is not a fan of dried fruits luvs this cake long time ahaakkkzzzz :p
