Things happen for a reason, right? Most of the time we questions the things that happened to us and we sometimes don’t understand why things happen the way it happens but if you have faith in Allah, you will learn to accept it with open heart. Allah reminds us that all people will be tried and tested in life, so as a Muslim you need to be patient and trust in Allah during these times of trial and we should not let our emotions get the better of us.
Remember that Allah never throws you deeper than you can go. He throws you from such a height where He knows yes you may fall, gain a few scratches, and open wounds, but He also knows how much sabr, tolerance and will power you have to stand back up.
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “When Allah desires good for someone, He tries him with hardships.” [Sahîh al-Bukhârî]
Okay… back to our recipe today… the first time I baked this cake was on Friday for our friend’s house warming event and then I baked it again on Sunday and by the next day semua dah licin he he he. The original recipe was taken from this blog. The first time I baked this cake, it overflowed a little bit because my chiffon pan was slightly smaller than 22cm. So the second time I baked it I reduced the quantity of the ingredients. So, if your chiffon cake pan is smaller like mine, please use the one in red, okay?
