Savoury Corn Bacon Muffins

This is my second attempt at making savoury muffins.  On my first attempt, I baked them in paper cups   and there were not much to be savoured as much of them got stuck onto the paper.  Had to scrape the crumbs off the paper in order to get more bite.  So, today I just lightly greased the patty tins and after baking, they could be easily dislodged.  Had them with some green tomato chutney made with brown sugar, compliments from my neighbour and they were delicious ........ a hearty meal.






second attempt, baked in patty tins without the paper cups







first try, with paper cups, much of the muffins got stuck onto the paper












Yummy, straight from the oven and served with some chutney.  The tangy green tomato chutney made a nice accompaniment for the slightly savoury muffins.

Marble Castella Cake ~ 长崎蛋糕

What's for tea?  A soft, light and non-greasy Marble Castella ~  Kasutera cake.  I didn't line the pan with foil this time, only with parchment paper and was very pleased that the bottom of the cake didn't stick onto the paper and yielded a perfect brown base.  Indeed a delicious cake to be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Chinese Pumpkin Pancake ~ 金瓜饼

This pumpkin pancake is soft and delicate and not too sweet as the sweetness is only from the red bean paste filling.   For a crispy pancake you can deep-fry them but I chose to just shallow pan-fry them in a non-stick pan.   This is great to serve as a tea-time snack over a cup of brimming hot Chinese tea.
