Mini Sausage Rolls with Champion Toast Dough

I love these rolls, they are so soft even on the next day.  I make 18 rolls with this batch of dough and we enjoy them for lunch and breakfast the next day.  The dough is made from the champion toast recipe from wu pao chun which is really easy to handle and not sticky at all.  Thanks to Sonia for showing how these cute little rolls are done.

Allo Gosht, Potato and Meat Stew

July is almost over, how time flies! I keep telling myself I need to cook a dish with potatoes from the beginning of the month but keep procrastinating and now it's almost over! Hope the link is still up! I saw this dish recently on my Google page and quickly bookmark it for cooking because it looks simple and delicious!

I made mine with thicker gravy…tasty with a tanginess from yoghurt!

Blue Pea and Yuzu Chiffon Cake

Saw Aunty Young's beautiful pale blue chiffon and absolutely loved the pastel color.  I have some dried blue pea flowers in the freezer but no soya milk. Checked the fridge and found some yuzu juice given to me by my sister so I used that to flavor the milk and got this combination:D

Light Cheddar Cheesecake

Something light and delicious for this post; this recipe is very popular at the moment even though it's been around for quite some years.  I have baked a cheddar cheese spongecake before and it was awesome so I know this cake couldn't be far off when it comes to taste.

It is indeed soft and fluffy and I can detect the salty cheddar cheese in the cake.  Very refreshing!

Plain White Loaf ~ A recipe by Wu Pao Chun

Every blogger I had visited seemed to have tried out this bread recipe from the reknowned Taiwanese baker, Wu Pao-chun.  I was slow to hop into the wagon but better late than never huh! A simple straight dough recipe and yet produced a great soft loaf of bread, so the descriptions went... Who could resist not trying? So if you were short of time but still wanted to bake a loaf of bread, this would be a good recipe to try. Some bloggers had adapted the recipe by using all milk. I'll follow the original for now. Read more about this famous baker from this blog.

Taisan (Filipino Sponge Cake) - AFF (Philippines)

I like Lena's taisan so much, I immediately pinned it for trying out and as she said is like texture and the cake reminds her of old fashion spongecake but it reminded me of steamed eggcake (ji dan gao). The taste and texture is similar except this cake is baked, oh ya, now I recalled the baked egg cake that was the craze recently…just like this cake, soft and spongy but this cake is more dense yet soft.

The butter, sugar and cheese toppings make this cake stands out from our own egg cake.  It's simple to make and quite delicious too!

Greentea Chiffon Cake - Bake Along #64

My sister gave me some greentea which she bought from her trip to Japan recently and I happily used it to bake this soft and fluffy chiffon cake. The recipe came from Anncoo's blog. The chiffon cake turned out light and easy to eat not to mention delicious too!
