Korean JapChae (Sweet Potato Noodles)



I'm not a great fan of Korean cuisine but lately after savouring some Korean food during my recent vacation, I've sort of developed a liking to their stir-fry noodles, pork bulgogi and Tteokbokki or rice cakes.  I've a vague idea of how this stir-fry Dangmeyon was prepared but after surfing the net, settled for this simple vegetarian stir-fry sweet potato noodles.  My family enjoyed this meal and look forward to more.

  1. I love stir-fry Dangmeyon too. I think is better than our 'dong fen', more chewy and can also make into salad.

    1. Yes, I agree with you. This Dangmyeon is more chewy and doesn't absorb so much water as 'dong fun'.

    1. At first I thought it's difficult to cook Korean food but since we can find the ingredients in Aeon now, worth giving it a try. My pleasure to link up with LTU!

Marble Butter Cake ~ 大理石牛油蛋糕

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead.

Bika Ambon Panggang ~ 印尼糕

Kuih Bika Ambon or Honeycomb cake is an Indonesian dessert and from the outset it looks quite challenging to attempt baking this cake in order to achieve a honeycomb pattern.   There are many recipes online and I also googled for Indonesian recipes and watched the video on youtube.  I was looking for a recipe that is not so complicating but straightforward and I managed to come across Whattocooktoday's blog and found her recipe.  I was very delighted when the cake turned out to be a success.  Thanks, Marvellina!   Bika Ambon Panggang  ~   印尼糕 ( adapted from  'here'  with adjustments)   Ingredients for : - Yeast mixture 2 tsp dry yeast 1 Tbsp plain flour 1 Tbsp sugar 2 Tbsp warm water Coconut Milk 350 ml coconut milk 160 gm sugar 1/2 tsp turmeric powder 10 kaffir lime leaves (tear to smaller pieces) 2 lemon grass, bruised for flavour Cake Batter 180 gm tapioca flour 1/4 tsp salt 5 large eggs   Method Mix the ingredients in the Yeast mixture and set aside to let it ferment.
