Durian cotton cheese cake

Hi, hi, hi, everyone, I hope you have a great day and a great week! I have been MIA for a while again...:p hope that I will not after this .. lols
It's a rainy day here today....We actually have been having shower rain in the morning for this few days. Monday was bad, it was raining the whole day. Tuesday was not too bad, there was some clear sky in the afternoon, Wednesday and yesterday was bad, it was raining the whole day, heavy shower rain. Today is a cloudy day with just a light shower rain. It is cool and nice when doing baking in the kitchen but fetching the kids from school is not that convenience ><~  ...This was drafted last week and it is about last week. How about this week ??  Today is a great sunny day in the morning but in the afternoon there is a light shower rain. Hope that the weather will turn sunny and bright on this Chinese New Year ..

This is the first month for Little Thumbs Up in year 2014. Last year was a great year and I hope this year will be even better ^_^
I would like to apologize to Zoe my baking buddy and Alice (LTU's host for this month) for my delay post :p for Little Thumb Up. 

This is a light cotton cheesecake but I switch it up by adding durian in it. It really does makes a different. It is so good with the durian flavor.  (For those who love DURIAN you must try this ^_^)

  7. Hi Doreen,
    Your cake is perfectly baked! Look at that cottony texture!
    Weather here has been a little cloudy, but no rain for about a week already!
    Some mornings are really cooling!
    Thanks for sharing with CYB!

  8. Hi Doreen,

    I'm guilty for not doing blog visiting much :p No worries if you need a break or not blogging... I'm trying to take things easy too!

    You have made your cotton cake very well... For me, no durian, please!!!!


  9. Doreen , that is one gorgeous cheesecake ! It looks so tall and fluffy ! Never mind that I don't like durian , looking at your photos makes my mouth water *sigh* :D Do you grease your wire rack before putting on the cake ? It's nice that the top of the cake doesn't stick on it and the imprint looks very nice indeed !

  10. OMG! I love durian! Must try! Look so cottony soft indeed! Love love love..... :)

  11. hello, can i used self rising flour? when should add in the durian flesh?

  12. When do you use the cheddar cheese slice?

  13. Hi Winnie,
    You don't need to use self raising flour for this cake. Just add the cheddar cheese slice into the cream cheese when you double boil to melt it.
    Happy Baking.

  14. Superb recipe💪 I have baked it n it's super soft n spongy, flavourful. It came out exactly as shown. Thanks for the recepi 🙏👍👍

Shark Fin Dumpling ~鱼翅饺

This Shark Fin Dumpling (yu chi gow), is one of my favorite dumpling. Although it is named Shark Fin Dumpling, but they contain no actual shark fin in it. Some say the look and shape of the dumpling does look like shark fin and other do include in imitation shark fin, though. I am lucky to have spotted this long hibernating in the book shelf chinese dim sum book ‘香港地道小吃’ translated as 'Hong Kong Authentic Tapas' Well, Do, you find this look like Shark's Fin?? 看看形状像不像鱼翅呢??  Filling for the ingredients are prawn, mince meat, carrot, yam bean and black fungus. Get ready the filling and the wanton wrappers. This is the parade of my Shark's Fin dumpling ... lol Homemade parchment paper liner. Arrange them neatly into the bamboo steamer. HOT! HOT! From the steamer!! Loaded with filling ..YUM! ENJOY~ Shark Fin Dumpling (yu chi gow) (Scallop dumpling /Cilantro dumpling - depends which filling you using) Recipe adapted from  ‘香港地
