Chocolate Banana Tea Bread


The method of preparing this Choc Banana Tea Bread is somewhat similar to preparing muffins and you needn't have to use your stand or handheld mixer.  All you need to do is just to mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients, pour into a pan and bake.  I enjoyed it when taken warm especially the crunchy sweet sugary top!

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!

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.
