Dundee Cake

Tuesday, December 6, 2016


Dundee cake is a traditional cake from Dundee, Scotland. Traditionally, it should contain sultanas, Seville orange peel and decorated with almonds. But as time goes by, people tend to change the ingredients to their liking. I find most modern Dundee cake recipes not much different from other fruit cake recipes, other than the almonds on top. The original Dundee cake does not contain any cherries or currants, or any mix peel, but specifically Seville orange peel for that bitter orange tinge and sultanas, just sultanas.

Homemade Candied Peel

Thursday, December 1, 2016


I never liked to use candied peels in my fruit cakes.
I hated them.

On my blog, I have two fruit cake recipes , as of this date; Grand Marnier Fruit Cake and Alcohol Free Orange Fruit Cake. I never use candied peel in any of those recipes, but fresh orange zest.

Dry Mee Siam

Tuesday, October 25, 2016


Mee Siam comes in wet and dry versions. So far, I have only eaten the dry version before.

I do not know if it comes from Thailand or Siam, back in those days, but Mee Siam is the name of this spicy tangy fried noodle. I did not cook this the 'traditional' way because I made a prawn broth with the prawn shells to flavour the noodles. Fried prawn shells , especially the heads, have a wonderful flavour, that I believe should not be wasted in cooking this noodle.

Painted Cute Bunny Birthday Cake

Thursday, October 20, 2016

There are people who don't like eating cream, who will tend to have the habit of scraping off cream whenever they eat cake.To us bakers, sometimes, that could be quite annoying, especially when we use premium ingredients to frost the cake, and before they even taste it, it is scraped away and discarded in the paper plate.

But yet, a birthday cake for a kid, needs to look like a birthday cake for a kid.

Lotus Leaf Rice 荷叶饭

Tuesday, October 18, 2016



These lotus leaves are bought 4 years earlier. Haha, I just never got around making them. Actually I didn't intend to buy, but when I saw them at Aeon, I can't help but get a pack, just in case I don't see them anymore.

I wanted to recreate the mini Lotus Leaf rice packs, served during my wedding reception many years ago.
