    Laksa Cookie – Chinese New Year Recipe

    This coming Chinese New Year, I thought something adventurous while having a spicy bowl of Laksa Noodle. “Why not make some Laksa Cookie?”, I thought to myself. The next moment, I’m already sourcing for my ingredients at the supermarket! Just like my Salted Egg Yolk Cookies recipe, it has tons of curry leaves to aid intense flavours of the Laksa paste. I’m perfectly fine using store-bought Laksa paste. But, I know some of you guys may be against it, feel free to use your own homemade paste. I’m not so hardworking afterall. For me, it’s all about how easy and quick to make, from kitchen to tummy. If you like something…

    Salted Egg Yolk Cookies – Chinese New Year

    Who could ever image that we could use salted egg yolks and make into cookies? This unique taste has been very popular in Singapore. And I can’t believe that we have created so many different type of dishes and desserts.  For this year Chinese New Year, these cookies have been popping all over the net. I guess one of the reason why it is so hype this 2016 compared to previous year is because there’s the recent crazed about Salted Egg Yolk Croissant that surfaced near our country, JB.  Butter crumbly cookie with lovely depth of salted egg yolk flavor. Anyway, If you love this pungent flavor, be sure to give it…

    Kuih Bahulu – Ji Dan Gao 鸡蛋糕 – Chinese New Year

    Kuih Bahulu is a chinese sponge cake and is commonly eaten during Chinese New Year. It is hard and crispy on the outside but soft fluffy on the inside due to the amount of sugar content of these cakes.  It’s one of my childhood’s favorite and they are ridiculously addictive. Today to show you how to make this recipe, I borrowed two traditional tins from one of my friend’s mum as I used to use mini-muffin pans to make these lovely cakes. The most popular traditional tins are these beautiful flower-shaped tins.

    Pineapple Tart – Enclosed – Chinese New Year

      I will show you how to make pineapple tart or roll (or ball…) Anyway Singaporeans (so do Malaysian) loves to eat pineapple tart especially during Chinese New Year! And buying good pineapple tart at that period can go up to $25 SGD dollars. How expansive! Why not make yourself with those simple ingredients? I think a good pineapple tart should have a buttery salty flavor for the crust and good balanced ratio of crust to filling. I just love that this recipe gave a melt-in-effect when you bite into it. I remembered making quite a few different batches of pineapple tart and finally found the right ratio.    If…
