Bird Nest Pineapple Cakes (燕窝黄梨酥)

“Bird nest incorporated into pineapple paste filling, just feeling luscious this Lunar festival.”

Making these into cake blocks in order to stuff in more bird nest into its pineapple filling. The chunks of pineapple cake would look more generous this way.

Same pineapple filling recipe I had previously, or even store-bought readymade kind of pineapple paste will do the job. Only the crust was made with slight difference this time.

Festive Dish: Steamed Pork Belly with Taro Pineapple & White Radish (年菜: 好意头(芋头)旺来扣肉)

“It’s not your ordinary Kou Rou (steamed pork belly) dish.”

I have my conventional recipe for Kou Rou dish. And here, I was to bring my pork Belly dish to a new level, with the necessary festive twist. Simply to prepare it as one of our Chinese Lunar New Year dishes!

I would like to consider this an entirely different pork belly dish. Not only the side ingredients were adapted for auspicious purpose, the recipe was just different. Cai po, Miso paste, mirin, etc were used here.. Weird? It turned out so well, in fact!

Chinese New Year Goodies: Pineapple Tart Rolls (黄梨酥)

“Looking for pineapple tart recipe? Here’s my homemade pineapple tart, in rolls, from scratch. It’s simple that even a beginner in baking could do it!”

I made and am always making the express pineapple tarts, using store-bought pineapple jam filling from Phoon Huat shops. Both the open-faced tart and ball types. Just making the crust, and my tarts were ready to be indulged in. For this good year, I’ve made the filling as well. It’s not that the filling is difficult to make. It isn’t, but takes time, like 2 hours and so?! Then why now? Because I did not go Phoon Huat, but NTUC Finest supermarket. Saw the Sweet 16 brand pineapple there, I had the urge to make pineapple rolls! Not forgetting my new crust/ cookie pump set, I want to make pineapple rolls! Lol
