White Lotus Paste Pomegranate Snow Skin Mooncakes

Instead of water, I used Pomegranate juice to make the snowskin. I was so happy to be able to get the cocoa truffle shells, which I just filled it with chocolate ganache.

White Lotus Paste Pandan Snow Skin Mooncakes

Blueberry Cheesecake

I made this cheesecake for my friend H's birthday.

Raisins and Melon Seeds Cupcakes

When I saw this recipe at Happy Flour blog, I knew sooner or later, I was going to try this as I have all the ingredients on hand. The taste is good and the best part is very easy to do this.

Chocolate Pandan Chiffon

I have extra coconut left from the lapis sagu, then I made this chocolate pandan chiffon.

Lapis Sagu


650g coconut milk
210g sugar
6-8 pcs pandan leaves

180g tapioca flour
50g rice flour

- Bring ingredients A to boil
- Pour into B and mixed well, then strain
- Take 50g, keep for the red colour for top layer, then divide the rest batter into 2 equal parts for colouring (or it depend on how many colours you prefer)
- Heat up the steaming tray, pour 50g of white colour into the baking mould, steam for 5 minutes, then pour the next 50g on top of the white layer, then steam for 5 minutes (here what I did, made 2 layers for each colour)
- Repeat until the last layer, steam for 15 minutes
- Remove, leave to cool completely before cutting into pieces

Baking mould : Oval (8x4inch)
Yields : 14 layers

Notes :
- Try to use darker colour so you will have nice colour layers (as my green so light, therefore hardly see the separated layers)
- Wait until completely cool (at least 3 hrs) before cutting into pieces
- Use plastic to cover the knife to cut the lapis into pieces, then you will have beautiful cutting lapis
- Try wrap asap into plastic after cutting (as I found the lapis sagu was sticky)

This is how the look of the knife wrapped in the plastic bag. Just straight use it to slice the lapis sagu. (updated 01/09/2010)
