Honey Sesame Chicken




This is a fuss-free chicken dish, very easy to prepare with no batter or deep frying involved.  It's just marinated chicken fried till semi-dry and coated with a sauce which is merely honey, light soya sauce with some salt and pepper thrown in.  Good to serve with  plain white rice or just have it on  its own.......I did!

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.
