Pandan Chiffon Cake



This is a fantastic chiffon cake recipe from Keiko Ishida’s baking book. The cake is very light and cottony soft, just how a perfect chiffon cake should be. I used Keiko’s Vanilla Chiffon cake recipe here; but, I substituted the water and vanilla with freshly squeezed Pandan juice (Screw pine leaves). The result? A wonderful fragrant Pandan Chiffon Cake which everyone loved very much. I am really pleased with this recipe. It's definitely a keeper, one to share with everyone!

Steamed Glutinous Rice With Chicken {Lo Mai Gai/Kai}



This is Steamed Glutinous Rice With Chicken, one of my favorite Dim Sum selections. Most Chinese Dim Sum restaurants usually serve them wrapped with lotus leaves. Depending on your preference, you can either use pork or chicken meat and maybe add a few slices of thinly cut Chinese's sausages (Lap Cheong). I steamed the glutinous rice using a few aluminum tart pan, and small stainless steel bowls, which is the traditional method. Just invert and empty the bowl into a serving plate after steaming and the rice will come out as shown in the picture above. Try it.

Chinese Hot Dog Buns/Rolls



These Chinese style bakery hot dog buns are a childhood classic! I would often purchase one or two for my children when they were younger. Imagine to my surprise, how excited they were when I made them at home! You can normally find these buns at your local Asian bakery, but if you’re not close to one, then try baking them at home. You’ll find how easy it is! This bread recipe is not only light, but also extremely fluffy. Serve it for breakfast or a snack on the go! Enjoy!
