Healthy Beancurd (Tofu) Cake with Black Sesame 芝麻豆腐蛋糕

This beancurd (Tofu) Cake recipe has been left in my folder for quite a while.  It has been weeks of postponing until blogger Zoe's monthly cooking event theme appears. The theme for the month of October 2013 was anything about soya beans.  Befitting the theme, finally I have the chance to try this interesting and healthy recipe cake.  This recipe is sure a hit among the health conscious freak.    

 I am not as pretty as Snow White but I am very very tasty!  ^_^

I am happy that there is no crack on the cake.   Yippie!!

Sea Cucumber Fish Maw Beancurd Soup 海参鱼鳔豆腐羹

Why not we do our bit to save the shark by replacing the shark fin soup to Beancurd soup.  It can be as tastier as shark fin soup and you can add any other ingredients  to give  that extra  oomps to this lovely soup!    So instead of shark fins soup lets go for Beancurd soup, its tastes as goooood!   Its quite tedious task to prepare the soup with cleaning, cutting, soaked, slicing and etc etc.....  But the results is worth it! 

I have prepared this  soup many times and I can't remember why I never blog about it.  The soup is as tasty as shark fin soup only  minus the shark fin and is taste as good.  My soup queen Tammie love it so much.  I called her soup queen as she love to drink soup so much.  When soup is not served during dinner time she will still prepare herself with soup Marmite or canned mushroom soup.   That is my girl, Tammie!

This soup have been prepared many times with few photos  were  posted on my facebook some times ago, and prepared soup again for my son home coming reunion diner.  This time decided to blog about it, credit must give to the event  little thumb ups organized by Zoe.  ^_^


 The black vinegar  to go with the soup

Charity Cooking Demonstration at Children's Spastic Centre, Petaling Jaya, Selangor

My second charity cooking demo was held at Selangor Children's Spastic Association Centre, Petaling Jaya  (my first was at Ti-Ratana petaling Jaya in July 2013).  Confidence has picked up gradually through a few previous live cooking competitions.  I would like to put this in record to invite more people  who are staying around Klang valley to join these charity cooking demo and help to generate funds  for  the less fortunate children. Datin Faridah as head of the Charity organisation will draw up events each month.

Cooking demo is held every last Saturday of each month (unless otherwise stated)  at the Spastic Centre, No. 14 Lorong Utara ‘A’ off Jalan Utara, Petaling Jaya, (Behind Crystal Crown Hotel Petaling Jaya)  
A few famous Malaysian chef who have volunteered to do cooking demo at the centre include Chef Wan, Chef Agnes Chang, Chef Kelvin Chai,  Chef Asrah, Chef Margaret Cheng, Mrs. Yap (Vegetarian Dishes), Chef Kulen,  Chef Ricky Ng and so on......

  A nominal fees of RM15.00 (minimum) is charged as donation to the Spastic Centre, which comes with a lucky draw and light refreshment and taste of demonstrated dished is served after each demo.  Its a noble and meaningful way to volunteer your free Saturday mornings.

 I was invited by Chef Margaret Cheng to do a cooking demo on 28th September 2013

My dishes are -

Coral Seaweed kerabu

Baked Honey Chicken wings (using my self  made Aromatic Spice Salt)
