Steamed Black-Eyed Bean Cake ~ 五香眉豆糕


This is a delicious recipe that is easy to make and great to serve as a snack or a gathering.  It tastes somewhat like the yam cake except that there are plenty of beans to bite in this steamed cake.  The combination of dried shrimps, Shitake mushrooms and bits of pork made this steamed cake all the more flavourful.   Leftovers can be kept in the fridge and either reheat or pan-fried.

Chicken Floss Cake ~ 鸡肉松蛋糕

It's normal to find buns coated with meat floss in any bakery, but yet to find a meat floss coated piece of cake.  I saw this Chicken Floss Cake on youtube and was eager to give this a shot.  The recipe is quite similar to a chiffon cake and I was curious to find out the taste which should be slightly sweetish and saltish.  Wouldn't it be weird, I wonder.  But it turned out that the taste is rather unique with a light and soft texture and my family members gave me a thumbs up and asked for more!
