    Apple Custard

    Apple & Carrot Bread

    There are many Apple Bread recipes but I would call them Apple Cake. All use too much Sugar. I first made this ‘Apple Bread’ by adding 1 Apple to my ‘Carrot Bread’, and the batter ended up too runny. I realised that Milk shouldn’t be added because enough liquid would come out from Carrot and …

    My first attempt to make a cake using the rice cooker was very successful but the bottom of the cake was fairly dark brown. I could have taken it out a little bit earlier.

    This cake used to be an Orange Cake. I started adding Apple, then the recipe has been altered repeatedly. Dried Black Currants, which are not so sweet or sour, are a good addition to this cake, I think, but it is optional. The most important ingredient of this cake is Orange Zest. I recommend to …

    In Japan, Spaghetti are often used for salad just like Macaroni are used for salad. This salad is another dish I learned from a friend who taught me ‘Crispy Abura-agé with Miso & Spring Onion’ when I was at uni. That’s many many years ago, and I am still making it. You know how much …

    What do you make with left-over Wonton Skins? I often simply add them to soup. But I wanted to make something with them. Wonton Skins look like small version of Filo Pastry. So I just wrap some apple with sugar & cinnamon with them and fried. The result was simply ‘YUMMY!’ I would buy Wonton …

    It’s winter in Melbourne. On the cold nights, warm desserts make everyone happy. This warm and creamy stewed apple dessert was my children’s favourite winter dessert.
