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.

Ma lai Ko ~ 马拉糕

  Whenever we 'yum cha' in a Chinese dim sum restaurant we never fail to order and try their Ma Lai Ko, which is a brown sugar steamed fluffy sponge cake and what most kids would like to have.  I have been looking for a simple recipe to make this Ma Lai Ko.  Some recipes require a fermented starter dough which will result in streaky patterns in the Ma Lai Ko, some will just go with baking powder and sodium bicarbonate but I chance upon this recipe which requires yeast, baking powder and sodium bicarbonate. I made this on a cool, windy, day and was praying that the batter will rest and proof with bubbles after 2  hours and thankfully it did.  I was very pleased when the cake looked good after I opened the lid of my steamer and the taste was superb, not overly sweet and the texture, nice, soft and moist.  I kept the remaining pieces of 'ko' in a container, at room temperature and they stayed nice and moist even on the third day, maybe because the weather was cool and not
