Orange Almond Cake

Another cake adapted from Alex Goh's Fruity Cake Book. This cake turns out to be slightly softer than the osmanthus cake though and has a slight hint of orange taste which some thought it was lemon.

Osmanthus Cupcake

Osmanthus Cupcake was adapted from Alex Goh's Fruity Cake Book. I could have put too little osmanthus thus the cake tasted more like butter cake with pumpkin and sunflower seeds. On the whole, it was given a thumbs up.

Yu Sheng

This is one of my favourite, love raw fish especially salmon.

Here is the recipe for it.

85g sugar
85g butter
85g dried fruits
1 egg
2-3tbsp milk
  1. Rub the self raising flour and butter together till it resembles breadcrumbs.
  2. Add sugar and dried fruits and mix well.
  3. Add egg and milk to bind the mixture together. (Add more milk if you like your rock buns softer)
  4. Scoop teaspoon of dough on the baking tray and bake at 175 degrees for 20mins or till golden brown.

Amercian Carrot Cake

Carrot cake with cheese cream for my sister's birthday. Something different from the usual cream cakes that we get from the bakery. The recipe adapted from Alex Goh's Fruit Cake Book. A slight different from those we get from the cafes. This is on the soft and moist side while those that I have tried from cafes are more on the dry and hard side.

Thai Pineapple Rice

Bought this Thai Pineapple Rice paste by Asia Home Gourmet from the supermarket and tried it over the weekends. Taste was quite all right considered all right. Just add rice, prawns, chinese sausage and of course pineapple. I used pineapple out from the can and it gave the rices some sweetness.
