    Ya, it's quite soft, no need to fry the fish so thoroughly, otherwise it won't be able to absorb the bean paste sauce.

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!

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.
