Mom’s Birthday , Casual Sunday

IMG_1842

It was my mom’s birthday this week and we celebrated it last Sunday.  We left the house at 6am and got to my mom’s place just in time, 7am!   We wanted it to be a breakfast surprise.  I would post pictures but then it was a pajama party so kind of embarrassing.

The crazy pajama theme was actually my idea, if you know me it wouldn’t take very long to figure out why I chose that theme.  Haha!  But it was seriously a fun and relaxing party!  We brought lots of foods and gave her sets of Marks and Spencer brand PJ and my Bug (my 4 year old) gave her her baked masterpiece — Apple Pecan Cobbler which she made the day before.

Bug is super fond of my mom whom she calls Guama –a chinese fookien term for grandma (mother-side).   She wanted to make her something big which means bigger than what she usually makes.  So we decided on a cobbler recipe since its simple enough for her age and it taste better than apple pie and my mom loves apple pie.

apple crumble / cobbler recipe

By definition a cobbler is a deep-dish fruit pie with a thick top crust so we sometimes also call it a “crumble”.  They taste almost like cake tops or muffin tops, basically the best part of any cake! So this recipe has always been my favorite.  Watch how Bug makes this on the video !

Btw, I also made some improvements in editing my videos.  I added subtitles since Bug just says the cutest things while baking, I also made improvements in the video transitions etc.   I hope you’ll enjoy watching it and tell me what you think and I really appreciate comments and suggestions on how I can improve my video editing “skills.”

Ingredients for the Apple Pecan Cobbler / Crumble 

4 Cups thinly sliced apples, I used granny smith

Crumble
1/2 Cup sugar (white or brown)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 Cup chopped caramelized pecans

Batter
1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 Cup sugar
1 teaspoon Baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/2 Cup Evaporated milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 Cup melted butter

Topping
1/4 Cup caramelized pecans

*Tip: you can lessen the sugar in the crumble to 1/4 Cup if you wanted it less sweet and still taste great.   * You may serve this with yoghurt or a scoop of vanilla ice cream 🙂
