Mince meat with Tofu and Sweet Beans


Cooked this dish with deep fried firm Tofu  .....  firm Tofu is dense, can be cubed and stir-fried, grilled or baked. It is supposed to be higher in protein, fat and calcium than the other forms of Tofu.


These sweet beans from the Cameron Highlands are crunchy, goes well with the soft tofu. The sweet beans are like green peas, except that they are a bit thicker in texture.




Healthy and nutritious, goes well with  rice  ........... Enjoy!

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.
