Sweet Potato Chicken Pie


I've made pies with potatoes before but haven't tried with a mix of potatoes and sweet potatoes.  Spotted this recipe from a Coles magazine which spurred me to give it a try.  It wasn't bad really.  I think that the sweetness of the sweet potatoes did blend well with the savoury filling.  All in all, a comforting one-dish meal for my family.

  9. I can see how this would work, Cheah. I made cod fish cakes the other night with both kinds of potatoes and it worked out really well. The sweet potatoes add a subtle sweet taste that is very interesting...Your meal looks so much better than mine did though. Mine fish cakes were messy, lol...

    Thanks for sharing...

    1. I did fish cakes before, yes can be messy. Must try again but cod fish here is super expensive!

    2. I used leftover cod, not very much Cheah. I've been thinking about trying this method with canned tuna too, just for the heck of it!

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.

Chinese Pumpkin Pancake ~ 金瓜饼

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.
