Pineapple Walnut Muffins










I was doing stock taking in the kitchen and stumbled upon some yoghurt in the fridge, long forgotten, gosh, I looked at the expiry date, thank goodness it still have a few more days of shelf-life.  So, together with some left-over dried pineapple, I whisked these up and shared them with some friends for tea, much to their delight.

  2. Hi Choong
    Tastes good.....not bad for first attempt. If u want to use butter, just melt it in a pot. But butter is more oily and fattening. U can also use Corn or Olive oil.

Puff Pastry Nian Gao ~ 酥皮年糕

Each Chinese New Year, I would get a Nian Gao, sticky rice cake as an offering for prayers as Nian Gao is a homonym for  'higher year',  which symbolises increasing prosperity and higher achievement for the coming year.  Therefore it is considered good luck to eat Nian Gao during this period.  Instead of frying the Nian Gao with batter like what I did 'here', this time I chose to just wrap it up with a piece of puff pastry and dump it into the oven, and the ultimate result,  yummy gluey Nian Gao with crispy pastry!
