Langue de chat – Crispy Cat’s Tongue Cookie

After slacking off blogging for a while, I finally back on the track and finish all my pending post. And I was pretty impressed about myself finish 1 post each day and able to finish all before I’m off to my holiday which I won’t have time to do cooking post but instead I will try to do some post on my Japan trip.
Well after all this is one of the recipe that I made so that I can use up all the left over off egg whites. I usually use the egg white to make macaron but then it was too cold to sit and wait for it to dry, therefore I found this light and crispy Langue de chat cookie, in English it refer as cat’s tongue cookie.

Happy Birthday to My Dearest Mum – Custard Profiterole Chocolate Mousse Cake

Finally I finish writing blog post for the cake I made for my dearest mum Birthday. I was trying to make her a very gourmet like cake, just like those from famous chocolate shop such as Lindt Café. Since I know Mum chocolate and also profiterole (which I normally won’t need to give it away because she can always finish them no matter what), therefore I thought to combined those 2 together for this year birthday cake.

日本大好き - Strawberry Daifukumochi いちご大福餅

As an Asian, the usual cake that we grow up with is a little different with western, as we tend to heavily reply on various types of rice flour, and starch on our sweet and savoury snack. And one of my all-time favourite even since I was a kid is Mochi. Mochi is usually referred to any glutinous flour products but in Japan, mocha is generally referred to any traditional cake.

What I love the most of these Mochi is the chewy texture, traditionally the chewiness was made from continuously pounding from cooked rice to paste. But now a day, thing was so much easier for us, you do not need to pound til you sweat to make these delicious traditional Mochi, all you need is just a microwave and it will be ready in less than 30 minutes.

Strawberry White Chocolate Lemon Mousse Cake

It has been a while since my last blog post as I’ve been slacking off because it was too cold to cook in such a freezing weather. But as soon as I saw some delicious strawberry on sale at supermarket, I just couldn’t help but buy some and start put in thought what can I made with that. And first thing come up to my mind is some beautiful cake accompany with the strawberry. As it was a recipe I found on some Japanese website but I recreated little bit of it.
