Pumpkin bread .. 南瓜面包

Kids  are on school holidays this week . My kids would request what they like to have for breakfast on holidays :D On school days, time is always constraint and rushing, they have no choice but to have what i prepared for them :p  We would only eat out on Sunday morning after attending Sunday mass.  This is a highly recommended Pumpkin Bread. It is healthy with pumpkin added and its texture is fluffy, soft and chewy. Further more it stays soft for 2 days. (my bread never last for3 days :p)  I like to make them into mini loaves, simply  because they are easier to slice and store. My kids like it in smaller slice too. Pu mpkin bread. Love this soft and fluffy bread pair with sweet and sour taste of the roselle jam.  柔软的南瓜面包, 香带QQ的口感! 配上落神果酱,好好吃!! Thanks to Sean for sending me some popular vouchers. I use them to bought this wonderful cookbook (in chinese version) by a Japanese blogger - Horie Noriko Simple roselle jam. I did not blend it as i like to chew on th

Tahu Berontak (Deep-fried stuffed tofu puff) ..包菜酿豆卜- AFF Indonesia

Saw this   deep fried stuffed tofu puff in Y3k recipes (volume 72) food magazine. This is one of the few recipes contribute by my Ah Chi to Y3k recipes magazine. I like stuffed tofu puff so i pick this to try. It turn out really yummy although the ingredients is normal but the coriander powder make it taste special. She learn this from a pakcik (uncle) during her Bali trip. This is a kind of 'gorengan'; fried  according to her. She also told me the special part of this stuffed tofu puff is the adding of coriander powder that makes it taste and smell really good!! After goggle i found that almost every city in Indonesia have this kind of street snack (gorengan - fried snack); since it is easy to make. In actually 'gorengan' does not represent any name for any specific fried food but it is a group of snack food that is deep fried.   Since Ah Chi learn this from a pakcik in her Bali trip, i was thinking linking this to AFF - Indonesia. I quickly check with Al

Cream Cheese Brownies (Bake Along # 59) 芝士布朗尼

Bake Along #59 this round is baking 'Cream Cheese Brownies from 'How To Be A Domestic Goddess"  Nigella Lawson. Baking this brownie is easy and  the method is straight forward. No beating or using the mixer at all. Just mix, stir and pour BUT this one is quite different. There is a step which is quite challenging that is adding the cream cheese part. I chilled the cream cheese before slicing it into thin pieces but my hands are too warm. The cream cheese become soft and its can't be slice so i had to flatten the cheese with my fingers.  I would like to thank Joyce and Zoe for helping me out when i send SOS for help!!  Hahaha!! you must be thinking what is the connection of baking with SOS.. Want to know why?? scroll down and  i will tell you why...:D This Cream Cheese Brownies is so delicious till my youngest ask for more the second day..:p I used unsweetened chocolate instead of bittersweet chocolate.
