Easy Grilled Prawns

When I cook prawn dishes, I will usually get Tiger prawns or Vannamei prawns. This is my first time trying out Red legged prawns (红脚虾) which I’ve ordered from Whole Fish. Red legged prawns are wild caught and not farmed like Tiger prawns and Vannamei prawns. It has a thinner shell and the flesh is crunchy and sweet.

Matcha Castella Cake & CNY Giveaway! 抹茶长崎蛋糕与赠品活动!(中英加图对照食谱)

Photo updated on 5 October 2018 

This is an overdue post and I finally found time to share this cake recipe. 

Last October, my dear friend Bee encouraged me to bake this Matcha Castella (also known as Kasutera) cake using the home brewed sweet glutinous rice wine that she has given me as the cake will be more flavorful. Indeed, the cake turned out so delicious that everyone commented that it tastes exactly like the ones I brought home from Korea some time back. I had bought two boxes of Green Tea Castella Cake from the Paris Baguette bakery at Seoul-Incheon International airport before boarding the plane home. We love the taste of the cake and I am so glad that I can replicate and bake it at home now. I tried baking the cake again using store bought Japanese mirin and the taste is just as good!

This sweet dessert wine is love at first taste, it is a cross between Sake and Makgeolli and I love drinking it!

A Visit to Dora Bakery in Taiwan 多拉烘焙小舖 (Highly Recommended!)

After sharing about my visit to Wu Pao Chun's bakery 吴宝春麥方店 in Taipei in my previous post, here's sharing another highly recommended bakery which you should try to visit when in Taiwan. During my Taipei trip last month, I've planned a day to Taoyuan specially to visit Chef Ian Wu (吴宗谚师傅) and his renowned Dora Bakery as well as to visit 'Cross-Country 台湾全国食材广场 - the biggest baking ingredient and baking tool supplier in Taoyuan'  which you will read about in my next post. 

A Visit to Wu Pao Chun’s Bakery in Taiwan 吴宝春麥方店 (Highly Recommended!)

This is my first post in 2018. I haven't got time to blog earlier as shortly after the new year starts, I flew off to Taipei with my teenage girl for a vacation. I had planned this holiday to reward my girl for studying hard on her own without any tuition for her 'O' level examinations last year. Besides rewarding her efforts, the getaway was for her to relax before the 'O' level results was released in mid-January. We had a great time in Taipei visiting cafes and bakeries. Do visit Baking_Taitai's Instagram for more sharing about my Taipei trip. :)

Taiwanese Traditional Sponge Cake - Cheese / Pork Floss 台湾古早味蛋糕 - 芝士 / 肉松 (中英加图对照食谱)

(L - cheese flavor, R - pork floss flavor)
(左 -芝士口味,右 -肉松口味)

This Taiwanese Traditional Sponge Cake has been on my to-bake list for a long time. I had experimented and baked it in three flavors - original, cheese and pork floss flavor. My family's favorite is the pork floss flavor as we find it the most delicious as compared to the other two. 

I've wanted to do a blog recipe post on this earlier but my beloved grandmother passed away on 8 October 2017 and I was in deep deep grief being very close to her. Those who have followed me on Baking Taitai's Facebook Page and Instagram would have known about it. I've baked two of her favorite cakes in memory of her as what better way to remember our loved ones through their favorite food.
