CNY goodies

These are the goodies I baked for CNY. First time trying kuek mamuk. I would also like to take this opportunity wishing all my fellow bloggers Happy Chinese New Year! Huat ah!!!!

Pineapple Tart and Almond cookies

Kueh Mamuk

Kueh Lapis. I used Richard's Goh recipe and reduce the overall sugar to 210gm. This recipe can make two 7 inch lapis. Every layer is weighed at 60gm of the batter.
Can you count how many eggs are needed to make the above lapis? Got problem counting the shells??? Count the yolks then haha....

(The shells are not wasted. I have crushed them and used as fertilizer for my orchid! :) )

Hi Fatmum, just have time to drop by your blog and your lapis cake is very nice. U make me realize how difficult to make.. but the result is worth to try! did you learn how to bake lapis yourself?

FATMUM said...

Simonne, there are recipe that uses egg white, which i have yet to try out. But it is defintely a healthier choice compare to this.

The Sweet Maison, thanks for dropping by. Actually its not that difficult, its only the time needed to lay the batter layer by layer.I learnt from instructor teaching at community centre, not hands on. Understand you are from Thai, do check out for courses that are available at CC. Have fun!
