Orange and Chocolate bundt cake



O range  Bundt cake is another cake that I made recently for the New Year.  This cake is indeed delicious with the addition of orange zest and chocolate powder and I must admit that it was a good combination of flavours.  Thought you may like to try baking this for the coming Chinese New Year which falls on Monday, 23rd January this year.






Would you like to see the mould?














This is a moist cake and it's really yummy with a pot of nicely brewed  coffee or tea!

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. 

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. Recipe for Wife Biscuit (Lo Por Paeng)   老婆餅  Ingredients Filling 120 gm candied winter melon, finely chopped 5 ml oil 15 gm caster sugar 40 gm koh fun 50 ml water Method Add sugar to the chopped winter melon, mix in the oil, water and mix lightly together.

Whisk the eggs with water, strain it onto a plate. Mix in the seasoned minced pork.  Remove any air bubbles. When the water in the steamer is boiling, place the plate of eggs onto the steamer plate, close lid and turn the heat to the lowest. Steam for about 14 to 15 mins., check after 5 mins.  Jiggle the plate, if centre is wobbly, it's done. Remove from steamer, garnish with some spring onions, light soya sauce,
