Lapis Bumi Cake II (蒸咖啡可可千层蛋糕 ll)

This is a cake that i always love to make when the Lunar New Year arrive. My family love it a lot and now whenever i have time i will make it for leisure snacking..hehe It is moist, soft, kind of fudgy texture and full of nescafe (coffee) aroma. I use to make it in 2 natural color (layers) that is original plain and dark coffee color. You can view it here Recently, i saw another Lapis Bumi in a blogger friend blog so i think maybe have a change since the flavor is still the same. Oh yes!! the name of this cake is Lapis Bumi. I have my own favorite one here (Lapis Bumi l) and this one will be my Lapis Bumi ll....  lol

  5. Hi, your kuih lapis look so sweet. Doubt I have the patience to make this :(

  6. Oh I like coffee flavour ... your Lapis Bumi looked so nice and yummy!

  7. I didn't know kuih lapis can be steamed too. This looks delicious mui!

  8. Hi. Your Lapis Bumi looks really good. I would like to try making it but can't decided whether I should make your Lapis Bumi 1 or this Lapis Bumi 2. Which one do you prefer?

    1. Hi Esther,
      Are you trying to do lapis cake for the first time? If yes, do try this lapis bumi ll. I recommend lapis bumi ll, cause its a smaller portion and it will be easier to handle.
      But if you are not the first time, try both :) both have slightly different texture. I love both.
      Happy trying!

  9. Hi. Your lapis looks very nice and I can't wait to try making it. However, I have one question. May I know where the 1/2 tsp of cocoa powder comes in? I've read through the recipe a few times but don't see it stated in the recipe. Also, for the eggs, I only need to beat until incorporated, is it? Hope to hear from you soon!

  10. Hi Linda. I hope it's okay if i reply on behalf of Mui Mui. The cocoa powder is mixed with the nescafe diluted in 1tbsp of hot water :)

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
