  8. Hi Cheah, You are a blessing and inspiration to me! I tried
    The apricot n sultana cake, it's fantastic. Today I made the Sarsi chicken wings. My family loved it. Thanks so much for your generosity to share. I will try this beer cake.
    By the way, I could not find your recipe using the Ipoh Salted Chicken Spices Mix HERBALTON black pepper. Can I get the Mix from JB?
    Thanks again.

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.

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.
