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 :)

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…

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!

Wife Biscuit (Lo Por Paeng) 老婆餅

Happy New Year, everyone!   My first post for 2015 is 'Wife Biscuit' aka 'Lo Por Paeng', a soft and flaky pastry with winter melon filling which is a very popular delicacy in Hong Kong.  The ones that I find here are not the same as their  flaky counterparts, instead they are crispy and thin.   I've been surfing the internet for a recipe and I was very happy when I stumbled upon a Youtube video from SiuKitchen.   The video is in Cantonese and she gives very detailed steps on how to make these flaky pastries.   The pastries were good and stayed flaky and soft for three days in an airtight container.  I needn't have to reheat them in the oven toaster.
