Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

Home Made Boot Jai Goh – Chinese Pudding Cakes I think I goofed up on this recipe, because it’s more “traditional” to use Chinese slab sugar, or at least rock sugar… or even brown sugar to get the colour.

Home Made Chinese Steamed Sponge Cake I didn’t know what to make – besides knowing I wanted to make a cake. I’m no good at baking, so I opted for a steamed cake. The first one that came to my mind was the ma lai go which is a common cake that you’d get during […]
