Black pepper salted baked chicken




I made this black pepper salted baked chicken over the weekend and it's a bit similar to our famous Ipoh Salted baked chicken but this is with added black pepper.  It's very simple to prepare as the ingredients are all pre-mixed and all you need to do is to marinate the chicken and then either bake or steam it.  The pre-mix spices come with a piece of foil and with instructions on the back of the packet as well.






I used 3 free range chicken legs and 2 wings.



When I made this the first time, I just marinated the chicken and steamed it.  It wasn't so tasty, steamed.  So this time around, I marinated the chicken, kept it in the fridge overnight and after steaming, I grilled the chicken for about 8 mins. on each side and it was just ........... heavenly!  Very aromatic!

During our recent blogger meet up, Elin of Elinluv's Tidbits Corner gave each of us a packet of the original Ipoh salted chicken spice mix which is without black pepper.  Haven't made that yet but will do so soon.  Do hop over to her blog to take a peep at her yummy chicky post!

  7. That looks very delicious. I thought it was fried. Good idea to steam and then grill. Does it taste salty? Must be really good with rice.

    1. Not very salty, if you find the spices too much for your needs, reduce it and keep the balance for future use. And, I shredded the leftover to make a sandwich.

Topo Map Cake ~ 地图蛋糕

I think it is more appropriate to name this cake just as 'Topo map cake' for the layers in this cake really look like a map.  Layering this cake can be quite challenging as a great deal of patience is required.  But patience and endurance do pay and after the cake is baked and once you sliced it up, you'll be so pleased to see the pretty layers and the colour combination.  Not only does it look awesome, the texture is good too, soft and moist.
