Pepper Lunch | Japan

It is now a Hanami season in Japan (during March and April) and for many Japanese, this is the best time of year. The cherry blossom (sakura) trees all over Japan come in to bloom for about seven to ten days. This is also a great time for people to hold outdoor parties to view the sakura. The name “Hanami” says it all, hana means “flower” and mi is “to look”.

 

Almond Nibs Biscuit Recipe

If you like almond and crispy type of biscuit, you will like this recipe. This is a very easy recipe with very simple ingredients. Do this especially when you have left over egg white as this recipe calls only for egg white without egg yolk. I will share the recipe with one egg white, just multiply the recipe with number of egg white if you want to do more.

Banana Muffin | Homemade Muffin

I do not bake for a period of time due to no oven with me in Japan. I mentioned that I miss my smart oven in Penang from the post of Peach Cheesecake. Well, after few months of stay in my apartment, I do not realize that actually I have an oven in my apartment. It is conventional oven where it can be used to toast, grill, bake and also act as microwave oven. A friend of mine discovered this and told me that I can bake, huuray! If not, I think I won't realize that I have an oven with me. Haha..

SteamBananaCakeI have overcome another fear on handling caramel last weekend. This steamed caramel banana cake gave me a good practice on cooking caramel as well as steaming a cake. I always afraid the caramel will stick on my pan when it turn brown, but thank God that I have successfully cook it nicely and no burning sugar stick on my pan.

Since it is a steamed cake, it's texture is similar to huat kuih/fatt koh发糕. If make it into cupcake, it is just like huat kuih发糕. When my mom ate this, she said it is malai ko马来糕. With her comment, she gave me inspiration to bake malai ko next time.

Hi xiyue, I think shd be ok. You can try it and let me know your result. Bear in mind after you pour in milk,sugar will get hard,just continue stir until sugar dissolve. :-)

Hi Raymund, I totally agree with you. I am thinking to do other steam cake during my stay at mom's house, where oven is not available. :-)

Steaming is a good option and this will be a big hit in the Philippines where oven is not available in every household
