Durian Ice Popsicles 榴莲冰棒。



I've bought this set of ice popsicle moulds quite some time ago and had totally forgotten to put them to good use until lately.   We have had some durians for dessert and I used the leftover to make this yummy frozen popsicle.  Well, enjoying durians is a much acquired taste, it's either you like it or you don't.  Some people just adore the smelly fruit while others are simply repulsed by it!  Which category are you?

  3. HI Cheah!
    I have seen both opinions about Durian fruit but I have never tasted it so I can not choose. I must say though, your popsicles look good enough to eat!

    Thank you so much for sharing...

  10. Any tips for removing the popsicle in one piece? i took them out of the freezer and when i pulled on the centre stick, it came out by itself, with the pop still in the mould :( I have the exact same mould that you have, got it from Kmart

  11. Sorry I forgot to put my name in my previous anonymous comment regarding the removal of the popsicles. I'm Prema :)

    1. I had a hard time removing the popsicles from the mould and as you said the stick came out with pop still intact. I dipped it in warm water and slowly pull out the popsicle. But still had some difficulty.

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.
