Hungarian Coffee Cake


I don't know why this is called a cake which by right should be bread, but it certainly lives up to its name, great with a cup of hot coffee or tea!  Sweet crunchy crust with nutty almonds and soft cottony bread ....




Pieces of dough are shaped into walnut size, rolled in melted butter/margarine, or olive oil,  placed in a tube tin ( I used a chiffon cake tin), layer by layer, add sprinklings of brown sugar and raisins, leave to prove.
After proving for about 40 mins. ........ they're now double in size, ready to go into the oven.


After baking in the oven for about 45 mins....... yummy, sweet smell of freshly baked bread!


Turned it upside down to cool ........ so excited, first time trying this, can't wait ......'dissected' a portion for the pictures.




Want a bite?  .............. Delicious, especially when it's warm and served with hot coffee/tea ...... Yummy!

  4. Here in US we sometime called this bread 'Monkey Bread' but it has loads of sinful butter in it. Your version is much healthier :)

Steamed egg with minced pork ~ 猪肉蒸水蛋

This is a super comforting home-cooked dish which requires only a few ingredients.   An easy to go recipe, I added minced pork to give the dish more volume.   Kids as well as adults will love the silken smooth egg interspersed with bits of juicy meat.   Great to serve over hot rice!

Pandan Ombre Butter Cake ~ 班蘭牛油蛋糕

Whenever I want to make a butter cake, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe will come to my mind.  Her recipe is foolproof and you can use it as a basic recipe and play around with variations of flavours to your liking.  Today, I'm sharing with you a Pandan Ombre Butter Cake.  I've used pandan paste instead of pandan juice as I need to have a distinct green colour to bring out the 'Ömbre' effect, which is from a darker to a lighter shade of green.  I'm pleased with the result and the texture of this cake is soft and moist and it still stays in this manner even after the third day, kept in an airtight container.

To Fu( Beancurd) Bridge ~ 跨桥豆腐

When I was recommended to try this dish in a restaurant, I was both hesitant and at the same time intrigued by its name.  I've heard of the song 'Bridge over troubled water' but Tofu crossing the bridge?  So to satisfy everyone's curiosity, we agreed to give it a try.  It's a nutritious dish with a good source of protein in the Tofu pork and egg all in one.  It was just tasty and delicious to go with a bowl of steaming hot white rice!
