  11. Hi, can I use the cookie cutter instead of using spoon dropping method? Will it affect the texture? Do I need to crushed the cornflakes til fine? Usually if I use cornflakes in my cookies, they will all turn out chewy after 1/2hr. Wonder what is the problem. But your cookies look great which I feel like trying out :) Thank you!--Doreen

    1. You can't use the cookie cutter because you cannot roll out the dough, it's soft. You need to crush the cornflakes but not too fine. I normally crush them in a plastic bag with a rolling pin. After forming the dough into a ball, you coat it lightly with more crushed cornflakes. Give it a try. They do stay crunchy even kept for some time in an airtight cookie jar.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes you can but need to add baking powder. You can google for the amount of baking powder to add in accordance with the amount of plain flour.

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.
