Gula Melaka/Palm Sugar Chiffon Cake ~ 椰糖戚风蛋糕


This Gula Melaka or Palm Sugar Chiffon  Cake is very aromatic and it does taste a bit like butterscotch but this is more rich.   It is soft and fluffy and in this recipe, I used coconut powder dissolved in water instead of coconut milk and the result is not disappointing at all!

Vietnamese Caramelised Chicken ~ 越南焦糖鸡

This is a quickie and delicious chicken dish, braised in caramelised sauce.  The ingredients are not too difficult to find and if you can't find kaffir lime leaves, you can omit them altogether.  This dish serves well with white rice and a side veggie dish.  Try it!

Matcha/Green Tea Pound Cake ~ 抹茶磅蛋糕

I was so pleased when I saw the nice green colour of this pound cake after I removed it from the oven, for true to the recommendation by the lady at the shop where I usually get my ingredients, she assured me that I won't be disappointed.  Yes, it is green and not pale or brownish.  The homemade red bean paste complimented well with the green tea and the cake stayed moist and soft even after three days kept in an airtight container, refrigerated.
