Chestnut Chiffon Cake


I made this Chestnut Chiffon Cake after reading the post from Honey Bee Sweets blog but mine is devoid of any 'make up' and is a plain Jane.  Nevertheless, the texture of this chiffon is soft, moist and fluffy and I can indulge more on this cake as it's so light and can hardly fill my tummy even after devouring 3 slices :)

Sticky rice cake with red bean paste ~ 芝麻豆沙饼

I love red bean, be it  in kuih, mooncakes, rice dumpling or other pastries with red bean paste filling.   This was my first attempt at making the red bean paste from scratch and had to admit that it was really very time consuming.  Nonetheless this sticky rice cake or glutinous rice cake with red bean paste, was indeed very delicious especially when taken fresh from the pan.  I like it that it was not deep-fried but pan-fried with very little oil when using a non-stick pan.  Great to snack on with a good old cup of hot Chinese tea!

Wife Biscuit (Lo Por Paeng) 老婆餅

Happy New Year, everyone!   My first post for 2015 is 'Wife Biscuit' aka 'Lo Por Paeng', a soft and flaky pastry with winter melon filling which is a very popular delicacy in Hong Kong.  The ones that I find here are not the same as their  flaky counterparts, instead they are crispy and thin.   I've been surfing the internet for a recipe and I was very happy when I stumbled upon a Youtube video from SiuKitchen.   The video is in Cantonese and she gives very detailed steps on how to make these flaky pastries.   The pastries were good and stayed flaky and soft for three days in an airtight container.  I needn't have to reheat them in the oven toaster.
