Lemon Dragon Fruit Poke Cake ~ 柠檬火龙果蛋糕


I came across this recipe in a Coles magazine and just couldn't wait to give it a try.  Instead of blueberry sauce I used dragon fruit to make the sauce as I was confident that the purplish colour of the dragon fruit would also stand out in this cake.  And I was not wrong!

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!
