Recipe adapted from : My Kitchen Snippets

Ingredients:
227g/2 stick soft butter
3 tbsp sour cream
250g sugar
240g flour
1/4 tsp salt
120g ground almond
1 tsp baking powder
4 eggs
120ml warm milk
2 tbsp instant espresso coffee powder


1. Line and grease an 8” x 8” square baking pan or round baking pan. Mix the espresso powder with the warm milk. Stir until dissolved. Set aside and allow to cool.
2. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Sift flour, baking powder and salt together in a bowl. Add in the ground almond and mix well. Set aside.
3. Cream butter, sour cream and sugar until light and creamy, about 5 minutes. Scrape the side of the bowl occasionally. Add in the eggs, 1 at a time until well combined.
4. Reduce the speed of the mixer to low. Add in the flour mixture in three additions, alternating with the cool milk mixture in two additions, beginning and ending with the flour. Mix until well combined.
5. Pour batter into the baking pan, smooth out the top and bake until the top of the cake springs back when gently pressed with your fingers and a cake tester inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. It will take about 50-60 minutes.
6. Cool the cake on the wire rack for 10 minutes, invert and unmold the cake and let it cool completely before cutting into it.


 这款微苦带酸的咖啡,搭上杏仁和奶油,
还真的别树一格,口味略重的蛋糕,
蛋糕体湿润扎实,吃一片就腹饱。 
Bitter with a touch of sour, the taste of this unique coffee goes well with the almond and butter, creating a cake that would suit those who have a rich taste.

简易叉烧 (Simple Version Char Siew)




 当我在Cass 家,看到这道简易版叉烧时,
我就快快把食谱带回家,因为这是安家娜娜的大爱啊!!!
 The moment I saw this easy recipe at Cass', I instantly brought it back to my blog. After all, it is a favorite of NaNak's!


第一回尝试 ,贪图方便,就随便往冰箱挖出块瘦肉,
结果当然不满意咯,烤出来的叉烧不止干硬,
色泽也不好看。
During my first try, I decided to make it even more simpler by just using skinny meat from the fridge. Bad move; the resultant char siew was not only tough and extremely chewy, it also did not look appetizing.


 这回吸取经验,向菜市的肉贩,要块半肥瘦带去皮的五花肉,
出来的叉烧,哇塞!! 一级棒!!
Learning from that experience, I finally decided to pay the butcher a visit for some suitable meat. The end result wowed even me!


简易叉烧 
食谱参考 :揾到食

材料:
五花肉 1kg
白糖 200g
酱青 2tbsp
酱油 1tbsp
盐 2tsp
红麴粉1/2tsp
叉烧酱 1tbsp
  1. 猪肉洗干净,加入其他材料(除了叉烧酱),搅拌至白糖溶解,放入冰箱腌过夜。
  2. 把锅烧热,放入腌好的猪肉煎香,把剩下的腌汁倒入,再加入1/2杯水,慢火煮至汁浓/收干。
  3. 在猪肉表面,刷上一层叉烧酱,送入预热烤箱250度c(上层火),把猪肉放在最上层,烤约3-5分钟或表面成微焦,再反面,也烤至表面微焦,即可。





Simple Version Char Siew
recipe adapted from : Veronica"s Kitchen

Ingredients:

1 kg pork belly

200 g sugar

2 tbsp light soy sauce

1 tbsp dark soy sauce

2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp red yeast rice powder
1tbsp oriental BBQ sauce



Method:



1) Wash pork and use kitchen tissue paper to dab dry. Add in all the ingredients and mix well (make sure all the sugar has dissolved). Marinate for 4 hours.



2) Heat up wok, place the marinated meat onto it and fry until fragrant.



3) Add in 1 cup of water, simmer at low heat until the sauce has thickened.
4) Brush the pork with oriental BBQ sauce and put it on a tray. Put the tray onto the topmost rack of a preheated oven and bake at 250°C for 3-5 minutes or until the surface is a little burned. Flip it over to the other side and baked until a little burnt too.



5) Slice and serve. Enjoy.


肉质松软,烤透的外皮,甜中带香。
咬在口里,那股叉烧特有的甜香气,填满整个口腔,
偶尔搭上1,2根青葱或芫茜,
哇!妙! 妙不可言! 
The taste of the tender meat and roasted skin mingles together......so delicious! One bite is all you need to fill your mouth with the wonderful aroma of perfect Char Siew. Eaten with a few pieces of spring onion, it just tastes better!


 很谢谢Cass和Veronica的美好分享,
这道好料肯定会常常出现在安家的饭桌上。 
I'm very grateful to Cass' and Veronica's selfless sharing, without which these delicious dishes won't get to appear on my blog.

棒果酱巧克力戚风蛋糕 Nutella Chocolate Chiffon Cake


 很多时候,往姐妹家探访时,就会见识到一些烘焙新材料,
就如这榛果巧克力酱,虽然常在超市见到,
可是从来就不会买回来吃。
直道那天看到Grace分享这棒果酱巧克力戚风蛋糕,
才想到自己也买瓶来试试吧! 
Often, new ideas with new ingredients pop up as I visit other foodie blogs. For example the Nutella spread; I may have seen it in many shops, yet I have never bought one  home to try. It wasn't until I spotted this Nutella Chocolate Chiffon Cake recipe at Grace's blog that I decided to buy a bottle and give it a go.

樱桃提拉米苏 - 简易版 (Cherry Tiramisu - simple version)


每当看到姐妹们分享美味又浪漫的提拉米苏,
心情就被牵引至亮丽欢愉,
然后就随心的带回一盒马斯卡芬乳酪回来,
结果。。。。。。。又被繁杂的步骤给吓忘了。
最后眼看马斯卡芬的寿命即将过期,
当务之急,就是立马上网找食谱,然后东凑西借,
把这杯:美味可口的樱桃提拉米苏”给变出来了。
Every time I see a fellow blogger sharing a Tiramisu recipe, how I wish I could make one! However, after bringing back a tub of mascarpone cheese, the complicated steps became an obstacle. As the expiry date of the cheese neared, I hastily searched for a suitable recipe and came across this very simple recipe.

寿司之三稻荷寿司 (Sushi 3 : Inari Sushi)

 「稻禾寿司」即豆皮寿司,
是在调味滷煮过的炸豆皮之中填入寿司饭而成。
Named after the Shinto god Inari, who is associated with fried tofu, Inari Sushi is a fried tofu pouch filled with sushi rice.


这是安迪继卷寿司握寿司后的第三款寿司尝试。
也把它选为这星期三的便当主角,
很开心依然获得孩子们的喜爱。 
This sushi is the third sushi I have tried, after the Maki Sushi and Nigiri Sushi.

香烤迷你卡士达月饼 (Mini Baked Custard Mooncake)



当我在Zoe家看到这香烤迷你卡士达月饼时,
心里很是开心,有点踏破铁鞋无觅处,得来不费工夫。。。。。
记得去年这个时候,无意间看到一家著名餐馆的月饼传单中,
就有着这一款牵动我心的新款月饼,
难掩心中那股强烈的好奇,即刻上网找食谱,
就如Zoe说般,几乎没有,
结果这事一搁就一年了!
When I saw this recipe at Zoe's, I was pleasantly surprised. I remember seeing this Baked Custard Mooncake in a leaflet last year. Led by curiosity, I surfed the net for a recipe, but to no avail. A year later, I've finally found it!

红麴椰香黑芝麻燕菜月饼(Red Yeast Rice with Coconut Milk Jelly Mooncake)

 
隔天为了消掉剩余的燕菜黑芝麻内馅,
就做了这黑芝麻椰香燕菜月饼。
After making the Blue Pea with Coconut Milk Jelly Mooncake the other day, I had to find a way to use up the extra jelly filling. The solution came in the form of another jelly mooncake recipe: this Red Yeast Rice  with Coconut Milk Jelly Mooncake!
