    1. I suppose you can but once the pumpkin is baked you can't really tell what it is. Pumpkin is very nutritious!

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!

Pandan Ombre Butter Cake ~ 班蘭牛油蛋糕

Whenever I want to make a butter cake, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe will come to my mind.  Her recipe is foolproof and you can use it as a basic recipe and play around with variations of flavours to your liking.  Today, I'm sharing with you a Pandan Ombre Butter Cake.  I've used pandan paste instead of pandan juice as I need to have a distinct green colour to bring out the 'Ömbre' effect, which is from a darker to a lighter shade of green.  I'm pleased with the result and the texture of this cake is soft and moist and it still stays in this manner even after the third day, kept in an airtight container.

Hawaiian Biscuits ~ 夏威夷饼

I was introduced to this Hawaiian Biscuit by a friend who bought this for me to try.  I was curious about the name and was wondering what's so 'Hawaiian' about these biscuits.  I understood, after the first bite of a Macadamia nut.  So the 'Hawaiian' thing is the Macadamia nut.  Since I have some lotus paste left after the mooncake festival, thought I'd give this a try.  I used the recipe for the pastry from my 'Lo  Por Paeng/Wife Biscuit' post and just wrap up some lotus paste with some Macadamia nuts.  This is a yummy biscuit to be enjoyed at any time of the day and the biscuits stayed crispy even on the fourth day, kept in an air-tight container.
