Pineapple Sour Cream Cake



This is a moist cake, not overly sweet because I've reduced the sugar content, and it's perfect with a nice cup of tea............ may even consider making it for X'mas too!






I let it cool in the Bundt tin for about 5 mins, before turning it over and quickly dusted some icing sugar on top for decoration, while the cake was still warm .......



the dried pineapple were still crunchy after being baked







Doesn't it look inviting ....... come share it with me!

    Mary, you're most welcome to join me for tea.

    The cake tastes a bit sour, and it's moist. You must mix in sour cream well, if not a streak will form at the bottom.

    It is not filling too because of the low sugar content.

  6. Hi! It looks great. I would love to have it with a cup of hot coffee. Will it taste better added with some kind of almond or walnut?

    Yes, you can toss in some chopped nuts if you wish, should combine well with the pineapples.

  11. Great tropical recipe, I haven't used pineapple in cake before. I wonder how it would be with some coconut milk/cream in place of some of the sour cream, mmmm.

  12. Cheah, this is such a lovely bake! Love the whole combo of pineapple & sour cream. I'm unable to find sour cream over my living area, so I use yogurt instead when recipe needed! Thanks for sharing this. Cheers.

    You should try baking cakes with pineapples, I like it because it's a bit sourish and crunchy, maybe it'll also combine well with coconut milk. I've never tried baking cakes with coconut milk, thinking of my cholesterol level, but cookies, yes, very aromatic.

    Yes, yoghurt will be fine too. You have a nice weekend.

    I haven't tried using tinned or fresh pineapples, but if you want to try with tinned ones, you'll need to drain off the syrup and coat with flour to prevent them from sinking. Don't think advisable to use fresh ones, because they may be sour.

Gula Melaka Kuih Talam ~ 椰香打南糕

After successfully making the  Kuih Talam  with much trial and error, I ventured into trying out making this Gula Melaka Kuih Talam.  What is gula melaka one may ask?  Simply put, it's just palm sugar made from coconut palm.  The slightly saltish top coconut layer pairs very well with the dark and intense flavour of the palm sugar from the bottom layer, and this kuih can be served for breakfast or snack on at any time of the day.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
