Mini Traditional Egg Cakes 鸡蛋糕


 With so many cooking and baking mums in my network, it is only natural for me to take a keen interest in baking.

Baking to me is also very therapeutic when things get a little stressful on the work front. However, I tend to like working on quick and easy recipes and here's one of my all-time favorites.




Traditional egg cakes, or better known as Kueh Bahulu are my all time comfort food, treats my mum would buy for me when I was good.

Baking them isn't too difficult, and is definitely one of the cakes I will attempt when I have cake cravings.



Mini Traditional Egg Cakes (Makes about 18 pieces) 
Adapted from Rasa Malaysia

Ingredients

4 eggs
200 grams of castor sugar --> I used only 150 grams 
A pinch of salt
180 grams all-purpose flour --> I used plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
35 grams Oil --> I used about 20 grams
1 tsp of vanilla extract

Method

  • Preheat oven to 180 degree celsius.
  • Whip eggs, sugar and salt with wire whisk at medium speed until light and fluffy.
  • Sift in flour mixture (flour + baking powder) with a spatula until well combined. 
  • Add oil and vanilla extract and mix till well combined. 
  • Pour batter into mini muffin tins or any cake moulds as desired. 



  • Bake for 20 minutes in the middle rack of the oven. 

Notes: 
- I hand-whisked the mixture, which led to the cake texture being less fluffy than expected. So, it is best to use a mixer for this recipe. 
- I reduced the amount of oil to 20 grams, with no compromise on the moisture of the cake. 
- I forgot to add vanilla extract, but it still taste as yummy.

Yilan for kids - Taiwan Travelogue

Our recent trip to Taiwan brought us to Yilan. Although we initially worried that it will be boring for the boy as it is more of a "back to nature" part of Taiwan, we enjoyed ourselves very much, and wished we spent more time there. Surprisingly, Yilan packs more fun for the kid than expected.



Here's some places you can check out if you are going down that way and I will let the pictures do the talking! 

My thoughts on the Glenn Doman Learning Method

When I was invited to attend a baby learning seminar about the Glenn Doman Learning Method , I wasn't prepared to feel what I did after that.

There were fleeting thoughts in that 3 hours for me to leave my job to be at home with J.

I also had my heart swell with pride despite not having been the most conscientious mum in helping my son to learn. Yet the time he spent in school has helped him reach all his developmental and learning milestones.  

Fun for kids in the West of Singapore- Part 1

My family moved to the western part of Singapore when I was 3 years old. For as long as I can remember , I have lived here, and will likely continue to for an even longer time.


At different points, people have asked me what's there to do here in the west as it seems so far away. The common comments I hear from friends while in school were "you live in tuas ah....the industrial area? " Or... "which kampong is that?".
