Fried Bihun ~ Rice Vermicelli


There are two types of Bihun~Rice Vermicelli, one is thin and fine which is suitable to serve with soup as they soften easily when soaked.  The other is thicker and tougher which is best for stir-frying.  These take a longer time to soften and as such they don't break easily during the stir-frying process.



The Tiger brand type is for stir-frying, while Erawan is suitable for soup.



This is a very simple, quick and easy meal to whip up.  First saute the garlic with oil, add in the ingredients, veggie, water and then the pre-soaked bihun, then the prawns.  Now just add in the dark soya sauce and salt to taste and you're done!



Fried Bihun is one of my favourites and I can have this anytime, anywhere ......... yummy!

  10. There's also instant bihun available these days. Quick & easy, no need soaking but only best for making bihun soup. Haven't had bihun for quite a while. Yumm.... Hope you're enjoying your evening.

Coffee Kahlua Chiffon Cake ~ 咖啡戚风蛋糕

  It's Chiffon cake again.  I never get tired of baking chiffon cakes and am still looking for new flavours of chiffon cakes.  This is a coffee chiffon with added Kahlua liqueur.  I have shared Coffee chiffon with cocoa layering and Coffee Marble chiffon cake on my blog before and if you are interested feel free to take a peep.  Again as with all chiffon cakes, this Coffee Kahlua chiffon cake doesn't disappoint, it's soft and moist with a tinge of Kahlua liqueur.

Marble Butter Cake ~ 大理石牛油蛋糕

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead. So glad to see that there weren't any cracks on the surface although it rose slightly in the middle. Marble Butter Cake ~   大理石牛油蛋糕      Ingredients (A) 230 gm butter 150 gm vanilla/caster sugar 200 gm self-raising flour 4 egg yolks   (I used 68 gm eggs with shell) 60 ml milk 1 tsp vanilla essence 8 gm chocolate powder a pinch of salt (B) 4 egg whites 30 gm vanilla/caster sugar Method 1.     Line the base of an 8 inch square pan with parchment paper, grease and dust the sides of the pan with flour.  Set aside. 2.

Coffee Walnut Butter Cake ~ 咖啡核桃牛油蛋糕

  This Coffee Walnut Butter cake recipe is adapted from my Marble Butter Cake which I posted some time back.  I tweaked it a bit to accommodate blended walnuts, added some coffee and Kahlua liqueur.  As always, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe never fails and this cake is soft and moist and indeed yummy.
