Fried Creamy Custard

It’s a very popular dessert in China. I remember I had it when I was very little. Crispy outside, creamy and soft inside.

Ingredients:

Milk 250g

Corn starch 30g

Sugar 25g

Put all these three ingredients in a sauce pan. Heat it and bring to boil. Turn to low heat. Keep stirring and it will become more and more condensed. When there is no flowing milk and bubbles start to come out, turn off the heat.

Prepare a container, line it with plastic wrap. Pour the custard inside. Flatten the surface with a spoon.

Cover the container with a lid and put into fridge.

When the custard is ready, it will be as firm as tofu. Cut it into shapes you like, cubes or long strips. Sprinkle flour over them. Make them evenly be coated with flour. Then dip in the egg and bread crumbs. Deep fry till golden brown.

Inside is soft like silky tofu. But it’s sweet, so it also tastes like ice cream.

It’s the first time for my husband to try it, he loves it very much.

Mango Sago

My husband has been asking me to make mango sago for him. Today, we just bought some fresh and sweet mangoes. So I decided to make it today.

1. Boil some water in a deep pot. Then put sago in water. Heat with high heat for around 6-7 mins till sago becomes completely transparent.

2. Soak sago in cold water, which will make them more elastic and taste better. Then drain them.

3. Cut mango into small chunks. Place them in a bowl.

4. Place sago over mango.

5. Add in 2 tsp honey. And pour in enough milk or coconut milk.

Ready to serve.

Apple Cake

This is the first time I tried apple cake and it turn out to be very good.

I made changes based on original recipe: http://www.food.com/recipe/german-apple-cake-16883
Ingredients:

1 egg

90 ml canola oil

150g icing sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla

120g flour

1 tsp cinnamon powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1 Apple ( chopped into small pieces)

1. Put egg and oil in a bowl and stir smoothly.

2. Add sugar, vanilla, flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Stir well before adding another.

3. Add in Apple pieces. Mix well.

4. Pour batter into pan.

5. Preheat oven to 180 degree C. Bake for 30 mins. ( because the cake I baked is a small one, so 30 mins is enough. If your cake is bigger, it will take longer time). You can check whether it’s done by a toothpick.


Because I used less sugar, so it’s not that sweet but to me it’s perfect.


I also used homemade caramel sauce as topping. Very tasty.
