Moist Carrot Banana Walnut Cupcake ~ 胡萝卜香蕉核桃杯子蛋糕

 

These hearty cupcakes are packed with grated carrots, crunchy walnuts and soft mashed bananas.  They are full of texture, taste like carrot cake but yummier because of the addition of bananas which makes them soft and moist. These cuppies are made with oil instead of butter which is more 'heart-healthy' and is an easy grab-and-go at breakfast.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle. I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!
