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.

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.
