Red, Black-eyed, Green beans, Sago pearls and
dried Pak Hup




doesn't take long to make this,
nice and refreshing on a hot afternoon

  5. Aunty,
    I dont own a pressure cooker. I was thinking of making this in a slow cooker/crockpot. Would you know how long I should cook them for and whether I should stagger their cooking times?

    Red beans take a longer time to cook, green beans cook faster. If you use a slow cooker, suggest you add in the red beans first, cook on high, then check it out, if they start to soften a bit, then add in the green beans. The pak hup you can put in last, after soaking for a while. To hasten the process you can use hot water, then put on high. Hope this helps!
    Have a fun time, experimenting with cooking and baking!

Matcha/Green Tea Pound Cake ~ 抹茶磅蛋糕

I was so pleased when I saw the nice green colour of this pound cake after I removed it from the oven, for true to the recommendation by the lady at the shop where I usually get my ingredients, she assured me that I won't be disappointed.  Yes, it is green and not pale or brownish.  The homemade red bean paste complimented well with the green tea and the cake stayed moist and soft even after three days kept in an airtight container, refrigerated.
