All About Chinese New Year Cake & Snack from Previous Years
Let me say Happy Chinese New Year to you guys, it is on this Friday, 16th of Feb, 2018, the year of Dog. Just 2 days after Valentine’s day! It should be really busy for all the Asian family already, the lady in the house obviously!
I just start to take action from today. But all the schedule and planning I have done before the last two weeks. Why? Is that serious? I can tell you the answer is YES! All I need to plan is how many stuff I’ll prepare, also my own vegan food as well.
This year I haven’t got time to try something new but I still loyal to my cake from all the past years. You can see how busy I am! Wish you all love them! ♥♥♥ Happy Chinese New Year, all the best wishes and good health to you all! 🙂
The dairy condensed milk is far too sweet than this vegan version with a lot of unhealthy white sugar that’s all I know. It is not an essential item in my kitchen cupboard. But why do I make it? Silly? NO. I make this vegan condensed milk for some special reason!
Japanese Vegan Matcha Sponge Cake with Adzuki Bean Filling
Tell you guys honestly, I want to make this cake a long time ago. But I don’t know why it takes that such long journey to let my dream come true. Now I can move out one of my to-do-list at last! 🙂
How about you? Have you got a long list work you still haven’t finish? I do, not only one page but few pages stead. Every time, something or some ideas flashing on my head. I will note down on my list. But… you can guess what happened to me then! :p
Have you organized a party to celebrate the Halloween day? If you have, enjoy it! But what will you plan for your costume? A pumpkin? A Ghost or a skeleton? Or a Lumberjack? I think a granny will suit me right! :p
Nearly all the bloggers have put on their own signature Halloween post already. Luckily, I think I can get on this last train.
Have I used teff flour for my baking before? Mmm, for my weak memory, don’t think so! But why do I use it today? Cause it was on sale for the price 50p instead of the original price £1.50. It is quite dear for the weight 120g only, right? Because I like to explore most of the weird ingredients, it is one of my to-do-list. So why not have a go for 50p. >_<
Apologies to all the vegans, this tartlet not for you! It is for my friends. They ask me to make this scrumptious, delicious cute little tartlets for them after they saw it from a magazine. Can I handle it? I really don’t know!
What is steamed Malaysian sponge cake? Why is it called Malaysian but not Taiwan or Korea? I really don’t know, dear! It just one of my favourite dim sum in a Chinese restaurant.
One of the more common version is after British rule over the Malay Peninsula, retain the habit of afternoon tea, eat cake, but commonly found in coconut milk than milk on the Malay Peninsula, the oven is not easy to find, so used coconut milk instead of milk and using the steam method instead of using the oven to make a cake.
Since I made the hot-cross buns on good Friday, I get the craving to something sweet again.
A few days ago, the weather forecast said Sunday will have rain. Then we’re not willing (but have to) to cancel our annual barbecue party. Surprisingly, we saw the sun shining through the curtain in this morning. Although it is still a bit of windy and chilly. Nevertheless, it still sunny though.
