Hot-milk Cake with Strawberry Cream: Bake Along #74

I am really curious how would this hot-milk cake turn out if i were to bake it. I found it is interesting to add hot-milk into the batter. Want to know how does it taste, i have to bake this myself. I bake this cake at night. Why? because it is a school day, I have to put my kids to bed before i start. No regret baking this hot-milk cake, my kids and hubby like it. We enjoy having it with the strawberry and cream!! My hot-milk cake turn out to be a little to the dense side but it is soft with fine texture. Topping with the cream and strawberries it is simply delicious!! We don't mind the little dense as it is soft and so delicious with strawberry and cream!! I bake them in ramekins Sliced the cake into 2 layers. Hot-milk Cake with Strawberry and Cream Recipe is from  Bon Appetit Dessert Cookbook by Barbara Fairchild (I followed recipe adapted by  Joyce from Kitchen Flavours ) Makes 6 ramekin cakes Ingredients: 2 large eggs 1/2 cup plus 4

JapChae (Sweet potato starch stir fry with vegetable: 잡채)

I have been wanting to try this Korean dish named 'Japchae' since AFF Korea month. But then i can't get this Korean glass noodles or potato starch noodles (Dangmyeon : 당면)  until last month i saw it in Giant supermarket. Without thinking twice, when i will cook it i grab a bag of this potato starch noodles. Now is the right time to cook and share it in Little Thumb Up !!  'Japchae' is a Korean dish consist of sweet potato starch noodles, vegetables and meat. It is easy to prepare, health and refreshing. It is sweet and savoury with sesame aroma from the sesame oil and the sesame seeds. According to Maangchi stir frying each ingredient separately seems like a lot of labor but this way you will get wonderful taste and color from each of the ingredient. Each ingredients requires a different cooking time and a bit of care. 好想煮这道韩式Japchae好久了。 上个月逛超市是看到红署粉丝好兴奋,就买了一包回家试试自己煮。 JapChae是韩式炒杂菜, 里头含韩式红署粉丝, 牛肉,菠菜, 胡萝卜丝,蛋黄丝,蘑菇,大葱和青葱。 用了糖,酱青,芝麻油和烤香的芝麻拌在一起就可上桌享用了!

Star topped mince pie

It's new year eve!! After midnight it will be 1 January 2015!! It is a whole new year and hope that everything will be a whole new start and the best of everything!! I baked this dainty star-topped mince pie on Christmas day. I am baking this again yesterday for today after dinner snack to go with coffee. Everyone love the flaky  pie  crust and not overly sweet mince filling. The sweetness is just nice and it's bursting of fruity taste. I can't find fresh cranberries neither frozen ones in the supermarket so i use the combination of blueberries and strawberries. These mince pies are small, to be popped straight into the mouth in one go... The crust is light, flaky and plain with a slight saltiness, pairing with the rich fruited filling. These pies have not in full casings but with a little star as lid and that makes them look so beautifully. Dust it with some icing sugar. This blueberry and strawberry studded mincemeat pie taste equally g
