Ginger Nut Chiffon Cake ~ 姜饼戚风蛋糕

 


The recipe for this Ginger Nut Chiffon Cake is adapted from my earlier post of Biscoff Chiffon Cake.
As always, chiffon cakes are soft and fluffy and the crushed ginger nut cookies gave the cake an added crunch.  This cake can be enjoyed as a dessert or for an afternoon tea.

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.

Braised Pork Belly with Mui Choy ~ 梅菜焖五花肉

Mui Choy is preserved mustard greens and there are two types, one is salty while the other is sweet.  There are many ways of cooking mui choy with pork belly.  Instead of braising, you can steam it with minced pork but here I am using only the sweet mui choy and I braised the pork belly with it.  This is a flavourful dish and you can serve it with plain rice or plain porridge.

Steamed minced Pork with Mui Choy ~ 梅菜蒸猪肉
