Black Sesame Angku Kuih ~ 黑芝麻龟糕



I was a bit apprenhensive at the onset when I  chose to use yam paste as the filling for this Black Sesame Angku Kuih.  Just wondering how will the taste of yam combine with the black sesame.  But if I don't experiment, I wouldn't know.  Come what may, I tried and  wasn't disappointed at all when the Kuih were freshly steamed and the first bite said it all ...... yummy!

Biscoff Butter Cake ~ 牛油蛋糕

The recipe for this Biscoff Butter Cake is similar to my earlier post of Marble Butter Cake, just that I added an extra ingredient which is, crushed Biscoff cookies.    Instead of mixing the crushed cookies into the batter, I just sprinkled them on top of the first layer of batter and then cover with the remaining batter.   This cake is soft and moist with good texture ..... definitely a recipe for keeps!
