Lemon Strawberry Bundt Cake



This is a light and moist lemony cake with a hint of strawberry.  Do be liberal with the greasing and dusting of the Bundt pan as the strawberry may stick to it when unmoulding.  Great cake to go with tea or coffee!

                                                            3. Caster sugar is very fine sugar for baking. Available in supermarkets.

                                                          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.

                                                          I baked this old-fashioned Cherry Loaf using the Marble Butter cake recipe but adjusted the recipe as I only used three eggs instead of four to fit into the loaf pan.   I remember that when I was little, I was attracted by the red cherries as any other kid and would gingerly take them out and eat them first.    The cake was secondary.  This cake is soft and moist infused with the sweet glace cherries giving it a lovely combination of flavours.

                                                          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…
