Baked Red Bean Coconut Cake (Chinese New Year)

by · 23 comments
The texture of this red bean coconut cake is a bit chewy, yet soft and smooth enough for easily digesting. The taste is so delicious. I especially love the crispy edges. This coconut cake is best served warm or hot out of the oven.

During the busy Chinese New Year’s celebration week, we have lots of different cakes (gao 糕). Yes, we can’t celebrate without all the traditional cakes, radish cake, taro cake (aka yum cake), sticky rice cake and water chestnut cake.

Except for all these must-have cakes, I pretty like this baked coconut cake.

Butter pound cake is my favourite childhood dessert. I remember how the strong aroma of butter made this traditional cake so addictive to me, feeling like never having enough of it.

Its simplicity, without any fancy decoration, with the golden brown crust, buttery taste and rich texture, totally wins my heart. You can’t stop eating after tasting the first slice. Mind you, if you’re on diet, make sure you can share with some other friends, or bring it along to any parties as finger food.

One slice of the butter pound cake, with a cup of tea or coffee, brings me enough enjoyment with no regrets.

Kimchi is nutritious and delicious that almost can’t be missed in every Korean meal. Miso is also an essential and healthy seasoning in Japanese cooking.

I tried combining both of them in one dish, popped in some thinly sliced pork with tofu, and found the end result so amazing.

Spicy Lemongrass Chicken Wings01

I’ve no idea how and why we talked about Super Bowl when we had these chicken wings for dinner the other day. We don’t have Super Bowl in Australia, but I know Super Bowl is all about chicken wings.

Yet, I can imagine how nice it would be for football fans watch their favourite championship games while nibbling some delicious chicken wings.

Prawns and mangoes are perfect partners for making a perfect dish, like this prawn stir fried dish. Seeing hubby enjoying it very much increase my joy of cooking.

Stir Fried Prawns with Mango01

Mango is in season here down under. It’s my family’s all-time favourite fruit. What makes me even feel happier is that the mango tree grown in our backyard bears more large mangoes this year. Every mango is large, juicy and sweet.

With some berries, this baked custard was turned into a very balanced delicious dessert to wrap up my dinner. The dessert was even more superb by adding some yoghurt. It’s absolutely a guilt-free dessert. It can be served warm or cold.
