When she fall everybody was still sound asleep...it was understood that she wanted to go to the toilet and suddenly felt giddy and 'blackout'...she managed to sit up, realising her head was 'wet' with blood..after that she cried out for us...my sons was those who came to hear her cries cause their room was the nearest..the kids came running to my room and woke me up...I quickly dashed out and saw my mum was holding her head with her hand and her face was sooo 'white'....with some blood was on the floor...the cut was about the diameter of a 20 cents coin...
That morning, Mr Hubby and my dad brought my mum to the nearest clinic, I stayed behind to settle the kids going to school..when the doctor saw my mum, he checked the cut and suggested to them to bring my mum to the hospital as the cut was quite deep and she had a very low blood pressure...when they reached the A& E department...the cut was treated and went for an X-Ray
to check any possibilities of blood clot or 'crack'..thank god it was OK, but when they checked her heart beat, it was very irregular and her blood pressure was very very low..the doctor suggested her to be admitted...after hearing that she was taking her blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol and thyroid medications adding to poor appetite the doctor put her on 'drip'...not sure what was the liquid in the bag, it could be iodine??...but she told me 5 bags of those was dripped into her...
During one of the visits, I managed to ask the doctor, how was my mum, she said that its because of her thyroid and her high blood medications adding to her 'TAK NAK/TAK BOLEH MAKAN', that made her blood pressure went down all the way...Alhamdullilah, after the 2 days she was taken off the drip and her face can be seen 'MERAH' sikit...got a call from her just now that the doctor has told her that she can go back today...so later Mr Hubby will fetch her...
Anyway I made this honeycomb cake and brought over to the hospital as this is my mum's favourite...and at the same time for those who came to visit ...recipe I put up here again..
Ingredients for caramel:- 1 cup sugar-(1 cawan gula)
1 cup hot water-(1 cawan air panas)
2 tbsp butter-(2 sudu besar mentega)
On medium heat, fry sugar in a saucepan. When the sugar has almost melt, add in hot water(be careful @ this part cause it will be popping.) Add in butter and stir till melts. Put to cool ans set aside.-(Gula digoreng dengan api sederhana besar. Bila gula dah agak cair masukkan air panas-kena berhati2 sebab nanti dia meletop letop. Tutup api & cepat masukkan air panas tadi dan masukkan mentega kacau sampai mentega cair. Ketepikan)
4 eggs-(4 biji telur)
1 cup condensed milk-(1 cawan susu pekat)
1 cup plain flour-(1 cawan tepung gandum)
2 tsp soda bicarbonate-(2 sudu teh soda bicarbonate)
1 tsp vanilla essence-(1 sudu teh vanilla essence)
Method:-Using a hand mixer beat eggs till creamy and thick. Add in condensed milk mixed well. In a blender pour eggs and milk mixture. PRESS the on button. Then add in plain flour & soda bicarbonate which has been sifted and Vanilla Essence. PRESS the on button again. Lastly add in the syrup. PRESS the on button again. Leave the mixture in the blender for 3-4 jam(covered) to get a beautiful 'sponge'. After 3-4 hours, pour into a 5" greased tray in order to get a 'higher sponge'(I used 7" inch tray) in oven.Without stirring the mixture(This was what I did), pour the ingredients directly into tray in the oven. Bake for 60 minutes or till cook at 160 degrees Celsius (For my oven I used 145C degrees and bake for 90 minutes) using just the below heat(api bawah). The last 20-30 minutes use both heat(api atas and bawah). Take out from oven and let it cool before cutting. -(Pukul telur sampai kembang & pekat. Masukkan susu pekat and mix lagi. Tuangkan adunan kedalam blender dan tekan ON. Masukkan tepung & soda bicarbonate yang telah diayak tadi dan esen vanila. Tekan On lagi. Last baru masukkan gula hangs tadi. Tekan On lagi. Biarkan adunan dalam blender selama 3-4 jam(tertutup) untuk mendapatkan 'span' yang cantik. Selepas diperap, masukkan adunan kedalam loyang yang telah digris dengan butter(Tanpa menggodak adunan tu, sebab dah trial & error kalau digodak sarangnya tak berapa menjadi). Gunakan loyang 5", kalau nak kek yang tinggi( Ayu gunakan loyang 7" aje)Tuang adunan terus kedalam loyang dalam oven. Bakar dengan suhu 160C selama 60 minit. (Ayu bakar suhu 145c selama 90 minit untuk oven saya) dengan menggunakan api bawah sahaja. Balance 20-30 terakhir, pakai api atas dan bawah. Keluarkan dari oven dan sejukkan dulu sebelum potong.)
