Mandarin yoghurt slice



With Mandarin oranges aplenty at this time of the year I was toying with the idea of baking a cake with these sweet-tangy citrus.   The cake was moist and dense but on the whole it was delicious served as breakfast, tea or as a snack.  What I liked most was the crispy sugary crust.

  6. I think this recipe is great seeing that the fresh mandarins didn't bleed into the cake batter.

    1. Yes, I thought that the mandarins would be covered up by the batter while baking. Good thing they stayed 'afloat'.

  9. Love the step by step photos and can't wait to make it but you don't mention what temperature the oven should be. Would I be correct in guessing 180'?

Turmeric chicken (2) ~ 黄 姜 鸡

A lot has been said about the nutrients and health benefits of adding turmeric to our diet.  Not only is turmeric a good source of manganese and iron, it also helps to lower blood triglycerides after a meal.  Moreover it helps to add more colour to a dish as you can see from this Turmeric Chicken dish which I'm sharing with you today.

Curry Chicken Puff ~ 咖哩鸡角

This is a 'cheat' version of curry puffs.  Why do I say 'cheat'?  Because the puff pastries were store bought.  It's very much easier to make these curry puffs snack with instant pastry for if I were to make the pastries from scratch it's going to be very tedious.  Also, shaping and baking them in a muffin pan is less time consuming.  Enjoy!
