Orange and Chocolate bundt cake



O range  Bundt cake is another cake that I made recently for the New Year.  This cake is indeed delicious with the addition of orange zest and chocolate powder and I must admit that it was a good combination of flavours.  Thought you may like to try baking this for the coming Chinese New Year which falls on Monday, 23rd January this year.






Would you like to see the mould?














This is a moist cake and it's really yummy with a pot of nicely brewed  coffee or tea!

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…
