Sultana Banana Bread in a Nut Loaf tin ~ 葡萄干香蕉面包


This banana bread baked in a cylindrical tin or a Nut Loaf tin has a soft, steamy texture and I especially like the top part of the bread which rose up like a mushroom.  It is crunchy and chewy with a slightly sticky centre.  Best to serve it warm with a slather of butter and some piping hot tea!






Sultana Banana Bread in a Nut Loaf tin ~  葡萄干香蕉面包

Ingredients 

  • 115 gm plain flour
  • 50 gm sultana, chopped coarsely
  • 40 gm caster sugar
  • 57 gm butter, melted and cooled
  • 227 gm over-ripe bananas, mashed with a fork.
  • 1 egg slightly beaten
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
Method
  1. Grease the tin generously with melted butter and dust it with flour.  Set aside.
  2. Combine and whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and sultanas.  Leave aside.
  3. Combine mashed  bananas, egg and melted butter and vanilla.
  4. Lightly fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients till just combined.  (Mixture is thick and chunky, Do not overmix).  Overmixing will result in rubbery and tough bread.
  5. Scoop mixture into the prepared pan.  Mixture should only be half-filled.  Close the lid and bake, Upright in a preheated oven @ 170 deg.C for 55 to 60 mins.
  6. Remove the tin form the oven, stand it upright to cool in the tin for about 5 to 10 mins.  Gently open the lid and test with a skewer till it comes out clean.  
  7. Gently shake the tin and loosen the bread and let it slide out and onto a wire rack to cool.

Steamed egg with minced pork ~ 猪肉蒸水蛋

This is a super comforting home-cooked dish which requires only a few ingredients.   An easy to go recipe, I added minced pork to give the dish more volume.   Kids as well as adults will love the silken smooth egg interspersed with bits of juicy meat.   Great to serve over hot rice!

Pandan Ombre Butter Cake ~ 班蘭牛油蛋糕

Whenever I want to make a butter cake, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe will come to my mind.  Her recipe is foolproof and you can use it as a basic recipe and play around with variations of flavours to your liking.  Today, I'm sharing with you a Pandan Ombre Butter Cake.  I've used pandan paste instead of pandan juice as I need to have a distinct green colour to bring out the 'Ömbre' effect, which is from a darker to a lighter shade of green.  I'm pleased with the result and the texture of this cake is soft and moist and it still stays in this manner even after the third day, kept in an airtight container.

Hawaiian Biscuits ~ 夏威夷饼

I was introduced to this Hawaiian Biscuit by a friend who bought this for me to try.  I was curious about the name and was wondering what's so 'Hawaiian' about these biscuits.  I understood, after the first bite of a Macadamia nut.  So the 'Hawaiian' thing is the Macadamia nut.  Since I have some lotus paste left after the mooncake festival, thought I'd give this a try.  I used the recipe for the pastry from my 'Lo  Por Paeng/Wife Biscuit' post and just wrap up some lotus paste with some Macadamia nuts.  This is a yummy biscuit to be enjoyed at any time of the day and the biscuits stayed crispy even on the fourth day, kept in an air-tight container.
