Coffee Kahlua Chiffon Cake ~ 咖啡戚风蛋糕

  It's Chiffon cake again.  I never get tired of baking chiffon cakes and am still looking for new flavours of chiffon cakes.  This is a coffee chiffon with added Kahlua liqueur.  I have shared Coffee chiffon with cocoa layering and Coffee Marble chiffon cake on my blog before and if you are interested feel free to take a peep.  Again as with all chiffon cakes, this Coffee Kahlua chiffon cake doesn't disappoint, it's soft and moist with a tinge of Kahlua liqueur.

Matcha Marble Red Bean Loaf ~ 抹茶红豆面包

  I had been surfing the internet for easy bread recipes since my breadmaker decided to call it a day and I found many interesting breadmaking videos on Youtube.   Some recipes do not even require a mixer and the dough had to be mixed and kneaded by hand.  I managed to get tips from here and there and managed to make this Matcha Marble Red Bean Loaf and I'm quite satisfied with the result.  The current hot and humid weather is ideal for breadmaking and anything that requires yeast and proofing.

Coffee Walnut Butter Cake ~ 咖啡核桃牛油蛋糕

  This Coffee Walnut Butter cake recipe is adapted from my Marble Butter Cake which I posted some time back.  I tweaked it a bit to accommodate blended walnuts, added some coffee and Kahlua liqueur.  As always, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe never fails and this cake is soft and moist and indeed yummy.

Tomyam Pork Fillet ~ 泰式酸辣猪肉片

  As an alternative to making a Thai Tomyam soup, I cooked a simple stir-fry pork fillet with Tomyam paste.  This is a quick and easy stir-fry with sweet and sour flavours which is so appealing to pair with a bowl of soft and fluffy white rice.  Or you can opt to have this with bread or buns. Tomyam Pork Fillet  ~    泰式酸辣猪肉片 Ingredients 500 gm pork fillet, sliced 1 tsp turmeric powder 1/2 tsp salt 5 cloves garlic, chopped 5 bird eye chillies, chopped Kaffir lime leaves 2 onions, sliced 2 Tbsp Tomyam paste 1 tsp fish sauce 2 tsp sugar Calamansi juice Method Season the pork fillet with turmeric powder and salt for a few hours. In a wok, with some oil stir fry the chopped garlic with chopped bird eye chillies and kaffir lime leaves till fragrant. Toss in the seasoned pork fillet, stir-fry and add a bit of water.   Add in the Tomyam paste, fish sauce and sugar and simmer till meat is tender.  Toss in the sliced onions, mix well. Fine tune to taste, dish up and serve.
