Italian Apple Cake



I was inspired by Ann to attempt this Italian Apple Cake as I was hooked when I saw the layers of apple in her cupcakes.  I didn't make cupcakes though but pour all the batter into a springform pan to make a whole cake instead.  I waited eagerly for the cake to cool before cutting it up to see how the apples will appear and was delighted with the result.  Thanks for sharing this recipe, Ann.








 







This is a cake for all occasions and serves well with a pot of plain hot  tea.  To make this whole cake, I made 1.1/2 of  the following recipe.

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.

Chai Tea Snowskin mini Mooncake 2020 ~ 柴茶冰皮月饼

This time, I experimented with Chai Tea to act as a flavour for the dough skin of this 'Bing Pi',  冰皮 mooncake.  These non-baked snowskin mooncakes are soft, slightly chewy and can be referred to as mochi mooncake too.  Nowadays snowskin mooncakes are gaining popularity and like their baked counterparts, they can house different flavours of lotus paste as well.
