Cempedak Butter Cake ~ The Healthy Way
cempedak ! The scientific name called as artocarpus integer where there's another fruit which looks quick the same called as artocarpus heterophyllus or 'Buah Nangka' in Malay. And most of us would called them as Jackfruit. They look quite alike but they actually taste so much different. Cempedak has such irresistible aroma which is more fragrant compare to Nangka. And cempedak fritter is widely sold all around the corner as one of the local street food. Recently, I received some cempedak from a friend nearby and wanting to try it on cakes. The idea is actually inspired by a local TV commercial called 'Ho Chak'. They went to interview the owner of this famous coffee shop in Ipoh selling this cempedak cake for many years already. (click here to see).And it has caught my attention immediately. If not forgetting, Cheah @ No Frills Recipe made this once.
