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.
I missed my kitchen and my homemade cake for a long time since the long journey.
Why? Because vegan cake is not so common and popular in Asia. Although they have few but not as many as the dairy cakes that you can get it everywhere. I’m not a loyalty fan of dairy cream nor buttercreams.
What would you fancy to eat in this heatwave weather? Frozen bananas and berries for vegan ice cream, lollies, and smoothie always sit in my big deep freezer to stand by me. Anything else to calm me down? That’s the question!
I have so many fresh berries waiting for me to pick up in our friend’s garden. Most of them keep in the freezer. I made a mixed berries crumble two or three weeks ago. That was so delicious accompanied with tangy flavour from gooseberries.
It’s vegan meringue!! Vegan bloggers worldwide are experimenting using canned chickpea brine and sugar, beating it together until it formed stiff peaks, and calling it meringue. Too good to be true? I had to try it by myself to experiment this magical ‘vegan’ egg whites.
When I decided to stop consuming animal products, I had given up on making meringue.
Chinese new year is coming, it is on 8th Feb, next Monday! It will be the year of the monkey!
Bless everyone has a Happy Chinese New Year and good health!
Before the big day, moms will be the busiest people in the kitchen. Not only the spring clean of the whole house for the Chinese new year. They need to prepare all the food, snacks and even planning to buy new clothes, new shoes for their children. Because they believe that everything needs to be new for the Chinese new year. It will bring all the luck to them. And the children will get the red envelope with lucky money from their parents, even from all married couple. That’s why all the children will be crazy about the Chinese new year. Also, the school will have two weeks holiday. Do you like to be a child? I do! 🙂
Happy Chinese New year to everyone! It is the year of the Monkey on 8th Feb 2016! Wish everyone full of energy, happiness, and good health.
More people celebrate from the 23rd of the twelfth lunar month (January 31, 2016). They start to clean, thorough their houses to welcome a new year from then. And the other thing is people buy New Year food and snacks, New Year decorations, and clothes for the New Year before New Year’s Eve. Chinese New Year, like Christmas for Chinese.
Around this two weeks, have you notice the weather is changing? During the morning and evening, the temperature drops down a lot. The sky gets more grey than the bright sunny day. When I walk on the streets, trees on both sides turn into yellowish or brownish silently.
