  6. It's a great one pot meal. It's very easy to make and they look delicious. I bet they are. Thanks for sharing another delicious and easy recipe. I think I would have to use jasmine rice for this though. We don't have the Taj Mahal rice.

  7. Hi
    Angie's Recipes
    That's the first time I cooked it. Didn't like pumpkin before, but my other half loves it, but now, I've no regrets.

    Ya, it's really delicious and easy too.

    My Little Space
    Quick and easy meal. Cook this, whip up a vegetable soup and that's it.

    You're welcome Elin. Senang, senang.

    I know who's going to have it for dinner. The meat will be cooked because you fry all the ingredients, half cooked prior to putting in the pot. Blanch some vegetables or make a soup, and that's a meal. If you have chilli padi, best! Also made yam/taro rice, will post later.

    Jasmine rice will be fine too. Most of my recipes are very simple, one pot meal. We call it 'yat wok sook',(Cantonese) literal translation
    '1 wok cooked', ha, ha.

Marble Butter Cake ~ 大理石牛油蛋糕

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead.

Bika Ambon Panggang ~ 印尼糕

Kuih Bika Ambon or Honeycomb cake is an Indonesian dessert and from the outset it looks quite challenging to attempt baking this cake in order to achieve a honeycomb pattern.   There are many recipes online and I also googled for Indonesian recipes and watched the video on youtube.  I was looking for a recipe that is not so complicating but straightforward and I managed to come across Whattocooktoday's blog and found her recipe.  I was very delighted when the cake turned out to be a success.  Thanks, Marvellina!   Bika Ambon Panggang  ~   印尼糕 ( adapted from  'here'  with adjustments)   Ingredients for : - Yeast mixture 2 tsp dry yeast 1 Tbsp plain flour 1 Tbsp sugar 2 Tbsp warm water Coconut Milk 350 ml coconut milk 160 gm sugar 1/2 tsp turmeric powder 10 kaffir lime leaves (tear to smaller pieces) 2 lemon grass, bruised for flavour Cake Batter 180 gm tapioca flour 1/4 tsp salt 5 large eggs   Method Mix the ingredients in the Yeast mixture and set aside to let it ferment.
