Pineapple Walnut Muffins










I was doing stock taking in the kitchen and stumbled upon some yoghurt in the fridge, long forgotten, gosh, I looked at the expiry date, thank goodness it still have a few more days of shelf-life.  So, together with some left-over dried pineapple, I whisked these up and shared them with some friends for tea, much to their delight.

  2. Hi Choong
    Tastes good.....not bad for first attempt. If u want to use butter, just melt it in a pot. But butter is more oily and fattening. U can also use Corn or Olive oil.

Biscoff Butter Cake ~ 牛油蛋糕

The recipe for this Biscoff Butter Cake is similar to my earlier post of Marble Butter Cake, just that I added an extra ingredient which is, crushed Biscoff cookies.    Instead of mixing the crushed cookies into the batter, I just sprinkled them on top of the first layer of batter and then cover with the remaining batter.   This cake is soft and moist with good texture ..... definitely a recipe for keeps!

Salted egg yolk cookies ~ 咸蛋黄酥饼 ~ CNY 2016

Salted egg yolk recipes are getting very popular these days.  There are salted egg yolk with crabs, salted egg yolk with chicken, salted egg yolk with bittergourd and salted egg yolk bun, just to name a few.  Being the inquisitive me, I tried baking the salted egg yolk cookies just to taste what's it like.   It's quite difficult to describe the taste, it's neither totally sweet nor totally savoury, it's a blend of both which makes it unique, yet delicious.


I like the small bits of salted egg yolk in the dough.  I let the dough rest in the refrigerator for more than 2 hours and it was more pliable to handle.
