Almond Coffee Cake


I was wondering what to do with the bottle of Kahlua coffee liqueur when Ann of Anncoo Journal posted her Almond coffee cakes.  Making this is a breeze and mixing can be done in a jiffy.  I totally agree with her that these lovely mini bundt cakes are truly very delicious and the sweet aroma of the Kahlua is just overwhelming.

  • 4 Tbsp plain flour, sifted   
  • 80 gm icing sugar

  6. These little devils sounded incredible. And the mould looks beautiful as well. I just bought a few silicon moulds a few days back at a nearby shop with less than RM50 and a few more from Daiso KL. Great great bargain! Yes, it's my late birthday presents that I'm buying myself. haha....
    Hope you're enjoying your weekend, Cheah.

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

Pandan Angku Kuih ~ 班兰叶龟糕

I've never thought of making Angku Kuih or Red Tortoise Cake simply because it's so readily available in my daily market place.  But there have been so many posts of this traditional kuih by my fellow food bloggers and  they look so cute and beautiful that I just cannot resist the temptation of not trying my hands at it.

I must admit that making this kuih can be rather tedious and the amount of work can really make your head spin.  But if you prepare the mung bean filling a day ahead, then it does help to lighten your work quite a fair bit.  For all the  effort, these Pandan Angku Kuih came out beautifully.  To see how the kuih will be like the next day, I kept some in a container at room temperature.  To my surprise the skin of the kuih stayed soft till late the next day.  I didn't have to steam them again.  All I can say is that my efforts paid off handsomely and I'm so pleased.  Now, I've no qualms  experimenting this Angku Kuih with different flavours :)

Country style steam chicken

This is one simple recipe of  steamed chicken dish which I'm sure many bloggers have blogged before.  Tasty yet easy and quick to prepare, this dish pairs very well with steamy hot white rice.
