Pumpkin Light CheeseCake (南瓜轻乳酪蛋糕)

很久没烘乳酪蛋糕了。 很想吃就快快动手做了这个南瓜口味的。
A few days ago, the conversation started like....
Man: Mummy, we have not eaten a cheesecake for a long time?
Boy: Mummy, daddy is right, we have not had a cheesecake since !!!
Second boy: Make a pumpkin one.
Mum: Why make pumpkin one?
Second boy: Your LTU have been carrying 5 little pumpkins home since last two weeks.
Mum: ...LOL

Of course I quickly whipped up a PUMPKIN cheesecake..
The cake shrink quite a bit but it is still very delicious.
See the orangey little dots hiding in the is the pumpkin
Overall it a soft, fluffy and moist cheesecake with very very light taste of pumpkin.

Pumpkin Light CheeseCake
Recipe adapted from "Cake Talk (蛋糕密语) by Wendy Kor
Make a 7 inches square cake

125g cream cheese
30g butter
60g milk

3 egg yolks
50g mashed pumpkin
25g corn flour 
10g plain flour

3 egg whites
65g castor sugar 
1 tsp lemon juice 

To do:
  •  Preheat oven at 150c. Greased and lined the bottom of the cake tin.
  •  Mix cream cheese, milk and butter together, double boil until just melted. Let this cool a little before adding in yolk. One at a time mixing well after each addition. Stir in mashed pumpkin, corn flour and plain flour. Set aside. 
  • In a clean mixing bowl whisk egg white until it is foamy, add in lemon juice. Start adding sugar a little at a time beating until it is almost peak form. 
  • Fold  the meringue into yolk batter in 3 batch, do not overmix. 
  • Pour batter into the prepared cake tin. Bake cake in water bath for 55 minutes. Invert the cake once it is out from the oven. (this time i did not invert the cake maybe because i did not invert the cake the cake shrank and the top were wrinkle but it is taste very good =p )

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
