Banana Chocolate Cupcake ~ 香蕉巧克力蛋糕



These banana chocolate cupcakes are moist and delicious which are very suitable for tea or a party gathering.   Just mix the wet ingredients in a one bowl and the dry ingredients in another, mix them up and you're done.  Another plus point is that oil is used instead of butter.  Oil makes the cupcakes tender that stores well and also these cuppies can be refrigerated and still stay soft.

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!
