Kueh Pie Tee


My sister sent me two tubs of Kueh Pie Tee shells last month. She told me there is a limited shelve life and I have been under pressure to do something with it.

Kueh Ambon (Honeycomb Cake)


      If I can only pick one item at the Bangawan Solo store,  I will always pick the Honeycomb cake. That is how much I like the taste and texture of this Nonya delight. I have many failed attempts at baking this kueh. Last weekend, I decided to try Mrs. Leong’s recipe again with some adjustments. Without the Read More

Durian Puffs


Durians. Love them or hate them. I am a durian lover. We only have access to the frozen version of these King of fruits, much of its distinctive ‘aroma’ is lost in the freezing process. We don’t get the kick out of sinking our teeth into thawed durian pulp. Nonetheless, beggars can’t be choosers. This weekend, I filled some choux Read More

Chocolate Chiffon Cake


  My aunt was a very good baker and I always looked forward to her visit when she would bring us treats that she baked. My favorite treat is her version of the chocolate chiffon cake. They were moist, spongy, and always delicately frosted with chocolate whipped cream. After her passing, I received a copy of her recipe that I Read More

Kueh Salat (Pandan Custard on Glutinous Rice Cake)

Nasi Lemak (Coconut Rice)


I have been on a sambal mission lately. The main reason: I have these precious bottles of home-made crispy ikan bilis and peanuts couriered from Singapore. Now that I have the sambal chilli handy, it is time to whip up the Nasi Lemak. The cast: coconut rice, crispy ikan bilis and peanuts, Sambal Telur (Eggs), Sambal Kangkong, and Ngor Hiang. Read More
