Candied Walnuts


Walnuts and sugar.  That's about it.  A simple recipe to make candied walnuts and these are quite a treat.  You can toss them into your salad or straight into your mouth.  I'd prefer the latter .... crunch, crunch!  But remember to act fast as once the walnuts are coated with the melted sugar, they tend to cool quickly and will stick together real fast.






Recipe for Candied Walnuts  (adapted from 'here')


    Ingredients

    • 240 gm walnut halves
    • 200 gm granulated sugar
    Method
    1. Heat up the walnut halves in a non-stick pan on medium heat.
    2. Add in the sugar, mix well and stir frequently to prevent the mixture from burning.
    3. Once the sugar starts to melt, keep stirring till the sugar is melted and nuts are coated. Keep stirring and turning so as to fully coat the nuts with the melted sugar.
    4. Immediately transfer the nuts to a sheet of parchment paper and quickly separate the nuts with 2 spatulas, otherwise the nuts will stick together.  (You must move quickly from the time the nuts are coated until they're separated out on the parchment paper).
    5. Keep them in an airtight container or cookie jar.

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.
