鸡蛋糕 is my favorite cake i love to eat when i am little. So this was the next recipe that i searched from the Web.
i failed for the first attemp. It did raised a bit but the texture was little hard & the taste is not there. It could be i added the pandan essence as per the recipe.
the 2nd attemp i tried another recipe with only self-raising flour, eggs & sugar. This round the egg taste too strong & is not soft as expected.
3rd attemp, i tried another recipe which turns out to be a good one. except that it didn't raised, the taste & the texture was almost there.
here is the recipe i got it from fenyingrecipe.blogspot.com.
- Egg 200g
- Sugar 230g
- Hong Kong flour 230g
- 7-up 75g
- Use high speed beat eggs till fluffy
- Add in sugar gradually and continue beating till well- blended, turn off the power
- Fold in the flour in 3 portions
- Add in Ingredients C and mix well
- Pour mixture into 20cm round bamboo basket lined with glass paper till 90% full
- Sprinkle a handful of sugar such that it forms a cross on the surface of mixture
- Steam over high heat for half an hour
Sweet Bun was the 1st that i wanted to try. I like the idea to create own preferred fillings.
As i do not have a electric mixer, i use hand to knead the dough which was really sticky & messy, it gets less sticky as i knead for abt 20mins.
After the proofing, i took out the dough & play with it to wrap my prince favorite Ham with Cheese toppings & half of the buns i just top with Almond flarks ... then goes into my Mircowave oven.
looks not so presentable but still yummy for the first timer (^-^)

Since Evan likes to eat the Ginger Bread Man cookies, so i gotten the recipe from Yin yin & decided to make some for him as it was not the X'mas season.
the cookies are a bit dry & hard ...could be due to i flattened the dough too thin. the taste are ok & the kids enjoyed decorating their own ginger bread man & gal.
