Jello Roll

Calling all sweet tooth people! This is the stuff for you!
I bet all the kiddos will respond to this call!

This is a very easy gummy roll to do. All it takes is 10 minutes!
I chanced upon the recipe when I browsing some blogs. As usual I forget to note the blog, hence I am unable to credit the blogger. My apologies!


1 pkt Jello, any flavour (I used Tortally, raspberry flavour)
1/2 cup warm water
12 large plain marshmallow


1. Dissolve jello and warm water in a bowl.

2. Microwave for a minute.

3. Add marshmallow and stir to coat and microwave for about one and a half minutes until the marshmallows are puffed up and melty.

4. Whisk marshmallow mixture till well mixed with a hand whisk.

5. Pour into a greased 8-in square pan with non-stick cooking spray.

6. Refrigerate till the mixture is well set and firm.

7. Remove by loosening the edge. Roll like a swiss roll with lighter shade inside.
Slice to thickness.

8. Pop one into your mouth!

A lesson to learn from the picture - Use a sharp knife to cut!

Great for children's party!

Something happened while I was out yesterday. My whole comb of "ang bak chio" dropped from the hook which I use to hang the comb of bananas. How it happened, I had no idea. Anyway, whenever a banana or any fruit that has been knocked or bruised, it turns brown or black.
Sob! Out of ten bananas, I could salvage about seven of them. They weren't that pretty to eat and so they ended up in the oven and emerged in cupcakes!

Ingredients: ( adapted from Anncoo's )

50g Cake flour
75g Plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda

1 1/2 medium- sized eggs
60g caster sugar
100ml oil
30ml milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

5 medium-sized bananas, coarsely mashed


1. Preheat oven at 175 deg C.

2. Sift dry ingredients together.

3. Whisk egg and sugar till thick and creamy.

4. Add in milk, oil and vanilla and mix well.

5. Mix in mashed bananas and finally fold in the sifted flour.

6. Fill up cup 2/3 full and bake for 20 to 25 minutes depending on the size of cups.

These are moist and soft!
