Lotus paste chicken floss pastries ~ 莲蓉鸡肉松酥饼


These Lotus paste chicken floss pastries are getting very popular here in Ipoh and some of them are with Pandan Lotus paste.   To me, at Rm2.50 for an approximate 2 inch diameter size pastry, is a bit on the high side, so why not try to DIY it I told myself.  Well, I did and here's what I'm going to share with you today........





I enjoyed the fruits of my labour with a nice cup of hot local coffee.

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.
