This is my son 6 pieces pancake with golden syrup & butter
As for mei mei, she had 3 pieces with different flavour (golden syrup, butter & peanuts butter) all place separately.
140g plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
40g sugar
1 egg beaten
240ml milk
30g butter

  1. Sift flour & baking powder together add into a large together with sugar.
  2. Mix well
  3. In a separate bowl, whish egg, milk & butter together
  4. Pour all egg mixture into the flour mixture
  5. Mix well till all incorporate
  6. Use non stick pan to cook

Tea Egg 茶叶蛋

I loves Tea Egg 茶叶蛋, i use to buy them from Pasar Malam. The fragrant smell nice and tasty if it's well cook. It'll more worthwhile DIY than buying it from Pasar Malam or some Medical hall or food stalls. The costs of 1 Tea Egg could range from S$0.50 - S$1. Feeling the pinch, i decided to make it for myself and my family to enjoy.

The making of this Tea Egg is really easy, all that we need is a packet of Flavoured Tea Egg Spices & eggs and probably some soya sauce.
This spices packets is good for 20 eggs, so here we go ....
  1. Wash the eggs
  2. Put in 20 eggs into a cooking pot, add in water and ensure the amount of water is sufficient to cover all the eggs inside the pot
  3. Add the packets of tea egg spices (do not break open the filter bag) and add 4-5 tbsp of soya sauce
  4. Cook in mild fire for 20 mins
  5. Take out the eggs and break the eggs shell gentle to allow the flavoured to penatrate into the egg.
  6. Keep cooking for 1 hour
  7. Off fire and allow the eggs to soak in the pot for another 1 hour to get more flavoured

The taste of the egg when eat wasn't there yet after all the cooking, probably i've add in too much water and the herbal still not thick enough. I've decided to add another different brand of herbal tea egg spice.

This time round it taste so much better and it got the taste out.

Toaster Flat Bread

A good recommendation from Food Lover for " Chinatown - Toaster Flat Bread "
Last night i bought this from Sheng Siong supermarket at special price of S$3.50 for a packet of 10 pcs.

What's the difference between Flat Bread vs Roti Prata dough (Good Question huh ....)
1) Flat Bread Western style and Roti Prata Indian style
2) Appearance of the ready made dough no different, except the size of the Roti Prata is bigger
3) Roti Prata uses pan and cook over the stove, whereby Flat bread uses Sandwich or waffle maker or toaster. (no greasing required)
4) Texture after cook, Flat bread is much thin and crispy

Make # 1 - using Sandwich Maker
Filling : - Ham & Cheese

Make # 2 using Waffle maker
Filling : Mozzarella Cheese
