Mixed fruit cupcake ~ 杂果纸杯蛋糕


For a change I made these Mixed Fruit Cupcakes as a substitute for X'mas fruit cake.   These cuppies will be appropriate especially for a family get together or pot-luck and I believe they will be a hit with the kids.

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.

Ondeh Ondeh Pandan Cupcakes ~ 香兰小蛋糕

Ondeh Ondeh are green coloured and pandan flavoured glutinous rice balls with gula melaka or palm sugar filling, coated with freshly grated coconut.  We call it 'Kuih'.  Ondeh Ondeh cake is entirely different from this 'Kuih'.
I don't know how the name 'Ondeh Ondeh cake' came about but I guess it's because of the colour and the ingredients which are somewhat similar to that of the 'kuih'.
This pandan flavoured Ondeh Ondeh cupcake is moist, soft and slightly spongy and the gula melaka filling blends awfully well with the pandan and 'santan'/coconut milk.  A wonderful tea-time snack or a delectable dessert, any time!

Not only is this Braised Pork ribs with mushroom  a homey dish, it's also very easy to prepare.  There are also three ways of cooking this delicious dish.  You can cook this in a pressure cooker if you're pressed for time, or in a slow-cooker or traditionally, simmering it in a good old fashioned, Wok!
