Japanese Cotton Cheesecake

I have been bookmarked this recipe from few bloggers and again i don't have confidence to bake cake or i should said i did not get the clear picture for Eg: how's the water bath work for this recipe. Until I read Sonia's blog about the Tips & Tricks from Ju. Thanks for both sharing.

I doubt my ability when double boiled the cheese cream and whipping egg white. When the egg white reached soft peak i have to triple confirm and referred to my printed copy of picture for the egg white whipping.

The cake rose in the beginning during baking. When I leave it to cool in oven with door ajar, the cake was sink down slightly. Thank god it was just slightly. My daughter and i love this cake so much. My daughter said "wants to bring some to school tomorrow and also bring some during the school trip next week". Well! I love it very much as it tasted like "kai tan koh" (steamed egg cake) with mild cheese.

Carrot and Coco Man Tou

Lately, I have been crazy to learn make Man Tou as it is not difficult to make it. I just dumped all the ingredients into bread maker. I like the recipe from Jane's Corner, her Man Tou looks so nice. 

I think i over steamed the Coco Man Tou as it looks so wrinkled but the Carrot Man Tou looks so nice in orangy. These buns are nice to serve warm.

As the Man Tou no taste, I dipped it with curry chicken. Delicious!

Steamed Egg Cake

I have been bookmarked this recipe for some times as not ready to make it. Maybe i don't have confident to making any cake cos not very good on it. Steamed Egg Cake (Kai Tan Koh) is my childhood favourite cake. I will definitely buy this cake from pasar malam.

Yesterday, i saw my friend posted her Cocoa Steamed Egg Cake in Facebook which was inspired me to make it on the next day. I told myself have to be patient do not open the wok cover, after 20mins i opened and teng teng teng teng...The cake result was so successful, i'm so proud of myself as i finally able to make the tradition steamed egg cake....This cake nice to serve warm. 

I followed the recipe from HeartyBake . My steaming time is 20mins.
