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!

Soy Sauce Chicken ~ 豉油鸡

  This is a very common dish but delicious and appetising.  The method of cooking this dish is less labour intensive and does not incur frying.  I marinated the whole legs of chicken overnight which made them more tasty and the sauce is the essence of this dish.  You can also throw in some hard boiled eggs and with a veggie dish on the side, you can serve this with plain white rice or plain congee.
