Mango Cake Recipe

“My 1st attempt of baking Mango Cake”

Bringing sweet treats to Monthly Leadership Meeting in the beginning of each month has become the latest style. Yes, the sweet savoury food made by me, for the meeting!

I made this Mango Cake for the meeting early this April. 1st attempt, and all the peers were my ‘guinea pig’ (laughing)!

I felt glad and was very pleased with my 1st attempted Mango Cake! Most of all, it was greatly appreciated by the colleagues. Yeah!

Each of them got only a small slice of it as I was capable making only a 8″ sized square cake, at the moment (smile). read more

Breakfast Cereal with Banana Slices

“My Favourite Breakfast Cereal”

I love breakfast cereals!

All kinds of breakfast cereal, from cold whole grain cereal to hot porridge oat.

Breakfast cereal is usually eaten cold mixed with milk.

Of all kinds and brands, I prefer Post Selects brand, particularly Banana Nut Crunch Cereal.

I loved the generous amount of real banana and nut crunches found in the multi-grain clusters which are exceptional delicious. The existence of this sweet crunchy banana crunch eliminates the dullness of having “just another breakfast cereal”. read more

“Fantastic 4” Chicken Soup in Coconut

“When true essence of chicken herbal tonic soup meets the fragrance of coconut”

I really cannot believe my own taste bud! It’s the real tasty chicken herbal soup I have ever cooked!

Simple, easy, and quick making chicken soup yields the real fragrance and natural sweetness from the coconut flesh, unexpectedly!

I went to the market in the morning. Saw an old folk selling desiccated coconut, freshly shred and dry from whole old coconut, one by one, on the spot. The idea of cooking chicken herbal soup in the coconut flashed onto my mind! read more

Express Pineapple Tarts (黄梨挞“旺来達”)


“Pineapple tart crust recipe in two ways to share with you here! Happy Lunar New Year to all Chinese!”

Thanks to my colleagues’ trial of the pineapple tart making, Margaret and LinSi. Their successful pineaple tarts making gave me confidence to set out my adventure in baking pineapple tarts, first time (chuckling). Both gave me their recipes, and I envisioned these two recipes as one to my first tart production of its own. A million of thanks to them!

Of course, pineapple tarts are always one of the staple food of Chinese New year festival. I, too, want to make some for my loved ones. read more

Great Milo Banana Sandwich for Your Children

Another form of energy booster.

Papaya and Snow Fungus Soup With Pork Ribs

“Savoury Papaya Soup with loads of taste and nutrients”

Green Papaya and Fish Soup is one of the well-known soup recipes among the Cantonese. I like it, too. However, to cook soup with fish, adding ginger slices is a must in order to eliminate the fishy taste totally. Some of us might not fancy ginger-flavour in the soup. So, can we use something else to replace fish in the papaya soup? Of course, there is. How about pork ribs?

My recipe uses pork ribs, white snow fungus and greenish-ripe papaya. Greenish-ripe refers to not-too-raw kind of papaya. Find much green colour with a little orangy on its rind, and flesh in bright orange. I prefer papaya of this stage as I like to eat it with a little sweet taste (too raw/ green will not be as tasty), and not just for boiling purpose. Eating the papaya after boiled is actually quite “meaningless” as its nutrients have been extracted and emerged into the soup instead. But I simply love to it even with just plain sweetness left in it. Just for the fun of exercising my jaws (chuckling) or to satisfy your crave of having some papayas! read more
