Eggless zebra muffins ~ 无蛋斑马玛芬


I've never done any bakes without using eggs as an ingredient and when I saw a recipe of eggless muffins on FB, I was curious to find out about the taste, texture, etc.  So without much hesitation and as all the ingredients were at hand, I gave this recipe a go and the result....... soft, moist muffins with pretty swirls!

Gula Melaka Kuih Talam ~ 椰香打南糕

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.

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…
