It can’t become wrong by adding chocolate to their cake. I’m not sure how many times I have made this for their tea since their childhood. I think it is the one that will pass it on to their kids in the future, oh yeah, my grandchildren!

My own way to make Pumpkin Puree

How to make Pumpkin Puree

Roasted Pumpkin

There have so many ways to make your own pumpkin puree, like: steaming, boiling, roasting.

Most of the people like steaming, it will give the pumpkin puree soft, but contain more liquid; boiling give the puree a bit more watery.

But I prefer the roasting, it can keep the moist and retain the most of the flavour.

Vegan Mexican Pumpkin Buns ~ 純素墨西哥南瓜包

Here is one of the bread rolls that’s so popular in the South-East Asia area. It is called Mexican buns, but do you think that you can find it in Mexico?

Today’s bread I like to make it softer, because most of the South-East Asian like to eat soft buns more than the Western country bread. But if you let me choose, I like the country loaf with whole grains, nuts and more.

Chinese Steamed Hot Dog Bun ~ Vegan (素熱狗包)

Hi, everyone, I put on this post on before I set off to my holiday this week. Certainly, I will miss you all for three weeks, will you? :)  I will update my journey along if possible.

Do you know, there was a traditional breakfast culture in Chinese, they are so popular until at present, it is called ‘Yum Cha’ 飲茶!

Have you learned about the Chinese like to delivery breakfast in a restaurant, I mean the Chinese style restaurant, they serve ‘dim sums’, noodles, deep-fry food, dessert, rice congee (rice porridge), normally savoury. People like to be there after their exercise in the early morning (I am talking about 5 am,surely is not kidding!), it is their regular routine: wake up early, do the exercise, having breakfast in the restaurant, chatting with other people, sounds they’re really enjoying it.

Korean Bread Roll ~ (Roll-ppang 롤빵) Vegan friendly

Korean Bread Roll ~ (Roll-ppang 롤빵)  )   Vegan friendly

Making too many mooncake in the last few weeks, it is time to have a change. I think I haven’t made bread since. When I browsed around the net, I got caught with this wonderful recipe. This little dinner roll is light, fluffy and easy to make. Also, you can create different bread just using this basic method.

Korean Bread Roll ~ (Roll-ppang 롤빵) Vegan friendly

“Ppang” is Korean for bread, and “roll” is a Korean word borrowed from English. You might think that this recipe has nothing to do with Korean food, but it’s something many Koreans make at home.

Once you test it out, you’ll see why I love this bread the most. The way to prepare the dough is so easy, similar to the ‘no-knead’ bread, without any harsh arm work to do the kneading, also it won’t take any work space nor lots of bowl or pans to wash (because I haven’t got a dishwasher). Only one Dutch oven, that’s all!
