Chocolate Glaze I

The photo on the right is a chocolate cake. Do you think it is from the box or I had made it from scratch? .....What do you think? If you guess from scratch, well I'm sorry, wrong answer. It is from the box. The cake was soft, moist and delicious. My hubby enjoyed the cake too and he was wondering what else did I put in the cake. hmm.. I've added extra ingredients to make it yummier... chocolate chips and maraschino cherries. To finish it off, topped with chocolate glaze. Yum-Yum!!!

My recipe for today is the chocolate glaze. I found the recipe from Allrecipes.comIt is super quick, easy and fast. The chocolate glaze is delicious but it was not enough so I had to double the recipe for my cake. And even though it is cold today but I just can't help it.. gotta have a slice of the cake with my Blue Bell Ice-Cream (Cookies & Cream). :)

1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp corn syrup

In a double boiler, melt together butter, chocolate and syrup. Alternatively, you can melt the chocolate in the microwave and then blend in the other ingredients. Pour glaze while still warm over cake.

Crispy Fried Chicken

Just wanna share with you a tasty crispy fried chicken recipe that both of us love. Yum-Yum!!

5-6 pieces chicken (mix of drumsticks, thighs or breasts)
100gm cornflour
1 packet (12gm) Seri-Aji All-purpose Deep Fried Seasoning mix
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ginger powder
dash of white pepper
vegetable oil for frying

In a bowl, mix garlic powder, ginger powder and white pepper together. Then coat the chicken pieces with the mix and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
Mix the all-purpose deep-fried seasoning mix with cornflour in a medium bowl. In a shallow dish or bowl, break the egg and whisk lightly. Set aside. 
When the chicken are ready to fry, dip each piece in the beaten egg then dredge in the flour mixture, coating completely. 
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high and fry chicken in skillet. Fry until one side is golden brown, then turn and brown other side until chicken is no longer pink inside and its juices run clear. 
Drain on paper towel and serve.
