Lemon Strawberry Bundt Cake

This is a light and moist lemony cake with a hint of strawberry.  Do be liberal with the greasing and dusting of the Bundt pan as the strawberry may stick to it when unmoulding.  Great cake to go with tea or coffee!

                                                          I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
                                                          I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!

                                                          Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),

                                                          Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…

                                                          There are many ways of cooking this Hakka dish of  'Long Bean Rice'.   My old Hakka neighbour used to cook this one-pot meal dish and I didn't realise it is their clan's dish until recently.  From what I gather from other bloggers, the common ingredients are roast pork and Chinese sausages and of course, the star of the dish which is long beans or  '豆角'.  My version is pretty simple and I used homemade char siew instead.   So, here's my take on 'Long Bean Rice'.........
