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!

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),
