Kuih or dessert  recipe

After a long time, I cooked any traditional treats or kuih (bite size dessert or snack)  for my family. This Apam Nasi was my late mum's favorite.  She used to prepare it when she had leftover rice for our  breakfast. My mum mix the flour just before going to bed and first thing in the morning, steamed these Apam Nasi.

What I noticed, most of our traditional kuih were mostly steamed since at that time an oven was not available even baking was  done using charcoal.

Added only half a cup of sugar but if you want it sweeter use 3/4 cup instead.  Used  red food coloring and the balance as it is but this is entirely up to you.  If you don't have that small plastic molds, use 7 in round pan and steam it for 30-40 minutes.

We enjoyed our Apam Nasi without coconut.   Halve the recipe if you have a small family, my recipe below yield 25 apam.

Honey Oat  Bars are excellent for on the go breakfast or quick snack anytime of the day.

It was super easy and pretty quick to prepare.  Use your preferred combo like sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds  or cranberries if you like. In fact the combination are endless.

Honey Oat Bars are free from wheat, dairy free and vegan   so they are good for those with food allergies.

I used chopped almond,. black sesame seeds and raisin for a total of 120 g.  Add 2 tablespoon of honey   if you want it sweeter.

After about more than a week, there was no activities in my kitchen but am so eager to continue my baking.  So I have chosen to bake this simple Crunchy Sesame Cookies especially for all my readers.

Dairy Free and Egg Free Orange Cake Recipe @

Dairy Free and Egg Free Orange Cake Recipe @

When I bake a cake, I make sure to incorporate fruits into the batter, in this case I had used orange juice.  This Orange Cake is a dairy  free and egg free recipe.

It's amazing how this Dairy Free and Egg Free Orange Cake looks 'normal'. The texture is perfectly moist. There is a hint of orange that adds a mild   tanginess  to  the cake. I love how the orange juice perfectly compliments  the  flavor of cake.

The Dairy Free and Egg Free Orange Cake is  darn easy to make, you  don't need a mixer at all, simply combining the wet and dry ingredients to form into  thick but pouring  batter.

Make sure to preheat the oven prior to baking and  lightly grease  the cake pan.  Fill  only up to half  to give room for the batter to rise.
