Mango Trifle




Mango Trifle ~ a light and refreshing dessert to round up a sumptuous X'mas dinner.  Basically, there's no recipe for this, no hard and fast rule, you just load on what you have at hand, layer by layer, sponge cake or any leftover cake, custard, jam, fruits, whipped cream, whatever you can think of.  Drench it with more alcohol if you want to be intoxicated during this festive season! 









I made this in small dessert cups so there's no excuse to refuse such a colourful and delightful dessert!  You won't say 'No' to this, would you??

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try. 

Tau Yu Bak ~ Braised Pork Belly in Soy Sauce ( 豆油肉 )

  'Tau you bak' in Hokkien or 'Braised Pork Belly in Soy Sauce' in Cantonese is a very homey dish.  The main sauces are light and dark soy sauce with the addition of some spices like cinnamon, pepper and star anise and in this recipe I also added some oyster sauce, which is optional.  The addition of hard boiled eggs infused with the intense gravy makes this a very delicious and tasty dish.  Pair it with some sambal belacan to make it more appetising and appealing. Tau Yu Bak  ~   Braised Pork Belly in Soy Sauce ( 豆油肉 ) Ingredients 700 gm pork belly cut into 1.1/2 inch 1 Tbsp oyster sauce 1 Tbsp light soy sauce 1.1/2 Tbsp dark soy sauce 8 cloves garlic 1 cinnamon stick 2 star anise some pepper rock sugar to taste Hard boiled eggs Method Marinate the pork belly with oyster and light soy sauce for a few hours or preferably overnight. Saute the garlic with cinnamon stick and star anise with some oil in a wok. Toss in the marinated pork.  Stir-fry, add in the some hot water

French Butter Cookies : Palets Bretons or Galette Bretonne ~ 法式奶油曲奇饼

  There are many names for this butter cookie.  Galette Bretonne, Palets Bretons, Sables or simply put French Butter Cookies which orginated from Brittany in the North-West of France where it's famous for its high quality salted butter.  In French,  Sable means Sandy and Breton refers to Bretagne region.  So literally it's Sandy Cookies from Brittany. They are somewhat like shortbread but richer because of the addition of egg yolk, flat, sweetish, a wee bit salty, crunchy and always with their signature criss-cross pattern on top.  These salted, golden cookies are very addictive and you simply can't stop at one and it's perfect for tea time.  As I prefer more bite to this cookie, I opted to use caster sugar and if you like to try with a different flavour of French Butter Cokies, do hop over to  Anncoo's  post.
