Best Banana Bundt Cake


This banana cake recipe from Dorie Greenspan has received many good ratings and I've bookmarked this recipe  after seeing Ann's post.   This banana cake is indeed very moist, bursting with banana flavour and aroma.  I tossed in  some choc bits and I must say that it added more oomph to the cake.   True to its name, it's the Best Banana Bundt Cake that I've ever made.  Will definitely be making this again in the future.

    1. Ha, ha, I'm amused when you say that Marion likes to eat bananas. I guess you've to tell her that you need to reserve this for a banana cake.

  4. With that amount of butter and bananas, I am not surprised this banana bundt cake tastes super. It has a perfectly dense and moist texture.
    Have a wonderful week, 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.
