Thit Kho (Vietnamese Caramelized Braised Pork and Eggs) 越式卤肉

Vietnamese braised pork is slightly difference from the usual Chinese braised pork. The nice golden and brown colour is not provided from the usual soy sauce but caramel sauce (Nuoc mau). There is no soy sauce is added in this recipe but still given nice colour. Anyway, I didn't prepare Nuoc mau ahead, instead I followed the way that my mother taught me when braise pork, also similar like Nuoc mau, cook sugar and oil till caramelized.

Easy Strawberry Mille-feuille a.k.a Napoleon 拿破仑千层草莓酥

We just came back from a short trip to Cameron Highlands. I bought some very fresh and large strawberries. I immediate thought of this French pastry Mille-feuille or Napoleon which made up using three layers of puff pastry, and alternating with two layers of pastry cream. I made an easy version, using store-bought puff pastry sheet, sandwich with whipping cream that flavoured with strawberry flavours and fresh strawberry from Cameron highlands.

Micro butter buns (Wei Bo buns) 微波面包

This is a popular bread recipe especially among Chinese bloggers since last year. It was first published by Siew Hwei .I am not really sure why this bread in Chinese called 微波 (microwave), I guess due to this bread roll into layer and layer, look like wave. Initially, I was not sure how to name this bread in English. After tasted it, then I decided to name this bread as butter buns, because this bread recipe use more butter than normal bread recipe, and it taste a bit buttery. Anyway, this bun is soft and nice even kept for two days, definitely a keeper. ( as updated by reader Lynn, this bun called as Micro buns)

Golden Sponge Cake 黄金海绵蛋糕

When my daughter first tasted this sponge cake, she told me this cheesecake is so light and good. But I told her that this is not a cheesecake but just a normal sponge cake. She just couldn't believe it! I am regret that I didn't make this good sponge cake much earlier.
