Hong Kong Style Coconut Tarts

Hong Kong Style Coconut Tarts
It wasn’t until I was writing this post that I noticed that this isn’t the first time I’ve posted a recipe for Hong Kong Style Coconut Tarts on my blog.

Oops?

It’s been that long I’ve forgotten I’ve made them before!

Actually, maybe don’t click on that link- there’s some cringe worthy writing during my high school days (yes it’s been that long!). And if you’re after a good coconut tart recipe, you’ll find it on this page anyway!

Mango Sponge Cake

Mango Sponge Cake

As summer well and truly over, mango season has sadly come to an end. And although it’s sad to say goodbye, I’m pleased to report that we did make the most while they were around!

And yes, this included making plenty of mango desserts!

Our summer staple is our favourite mango pudding, a recipe we’ve used for years and years. It’s a simple mixture of mango jelly powder, evaporated milk and mango chunks. But for something a little more extravagant looking, this classic Asian bakery mango sponge cake is my pick! (probably because it’s the cake that I always wanted but couldn’t get because my birthday isn’t anywhere near summer)

Black sesame coconut mochi

I’m not really the forgetful type, so when there’s something that I just can’t seem to remember, no matter how hard I try, it really bugs me. Most of the time, if I think about it long enough, I eventually do remember it, but then there’s times when it never comes to me. Like these mochi- not that it’s important, but I can’t seem to remember where I used to have mochi as a kig! Was it yum cha? Was it from a bakery? Was it home made? All possible but still no closer to remembering.

It’s not something I had often as a kid, and to be honest, the only memories I have of eating any type of mochi are the frozen sort that we used to buy from the 7-eleven downstairs from my grandma’s place in HK when we used to visit. Infact, it was those mochi balls that inspired me to make (ice cream) mochi for the first time years ago.
