This is another chicken dish with preserved bean curd ~ Foo Yue.  A country style chicken dish, simple to prepare which I'm sure most of you would have made this in one way or another.  You can click  here  to view the other chicken post  using foo yue as well.

  • 2 tsp of foo yue smashed to a paste
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 dessertspoon Shaoxing wine

  6. This looks familiar but I think my Mum didn't use the foo yue (probably because she knew we'd complain). Bet this smells delicious. Thanks again for another brilliant post. And happy belated mother's day, beautiful flowers!

Marble Castella Cake ~ 长崎蛋糕

What's for tea?  A soft, light and non-greasy Marble Castella ~  Kasutera cake.  I didn't line the pan with foil this time, only with parchment paper and was very pleased that the bottom of the cake didn't stick onto the paper and yielded a perfect brown base.  Indeed a delicious cake to be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Chinese Pumpkin Pancake ~ 金瓜饼

This pumpkin pancake is soft and delicate and not too sweet as the sweetness is only from the red bean paste filling.   For a crispy pancake you can deep-fry them but I chose to just shallow pan-fry them in a non-stick pan.   This is great to serve as a tea-time snack over a cup of brimming hot Chinese tea.
