Sweet Corn Mantou (steamed buns) 甜粟米馒头

My daughter requested some plain mantou (steamed buns) as she prefer raw and plain steamed buns rather than with filling like normal baozi. Anyway, i didn't make the very raw mantau without any flavours, instead i added some sweet corn cream into it as inspired from a similar sweet corn baozi that i tasted earlier.

Sakura Chiffon Cake 樱花戚风蛋糕

I seldom decorate a chiffon cake with cream. The other day my sister invited us for dinner. So i took this opportunity to bake this Sakura chiffon cake and did little decoration on the cake. I didn't expect this cake tasted so nice as I was worry the pickled sakura which tasted like salted sour plum will taste odd. Since i only bake a small cake, all wanted a second serving also no chance, have to bake again next time ^_^.
