Water chestnut and bamboo cane drink

This is another body cooling and thirst quenching drink I love to boil for my family on hot and heaty days.  The method of preparation is as simple as that for the barley drink recipe which I posted earlier.   I first learnt about this method from a neighbour. The drink is her family’s all-time favourite. A kid whom she babysat many years ago loved it so much that he even requested...

Raisin and seed rolls

Having tried my hand at making sausage rolls and pizza, I was on the look out for a good bread recipe.  Not long ago, I chanced upon a simple and easy bread recipe called “soft raisin bread” from Daily Delicious.  This recipe uses a sweet bun dough which is similar to the sausage rolls recipe I tried earlier except it does not use egg and sausage.  You just need to shape the dough into balls instead...
