I used to think Mrs NgSK's butter cake is the best and nicest butter cake I have ever made until I tried this butter cake recipe which uses about half the amount of butter and yet so moist, fragrant and light!

Healthy Wholemeal Cranberry Almond Cookies 健康全麦蔓越梅杏仁酥 (中英加图对照食谱)

The Lunar/Chinese New Year (CNY) is less than a month away. Have you started making CNY goodies? Most traditional Lunar New Year goodies are packed with sugar and fat, with little nutritional value at all. Thus, I am determined to come up with a healthier cookie recipe this year. I have tweaked and modified greatly an almond cookies recipe found on 孟老师's cookie recipe book.

Chocolate Eclairs 耶克蕾亚泡芙 (中英加图对照食谱)

A happy and blessed 2016 New Year to all my readers! 

Sharing my first bake of the year - my first attempt to bake Chocolate Eclairs. Eclair is a french word meaning lightning, rumor has it that it came about because a pastry chef would joke that this cake is so good that it is gobbled up as fast as lightning! It is a hollow, log-shaped shell of choux pastry that is filled with vanilla, chocolate, or coffee flavored pastry cream. The top of the pastry is usually dipped into a vanilla, chocolate, or coffee flavored glaze or fondant.
