Coconut Tarts

Be frank, i hate food with coconut previously!

But, since i tried the pineapple and coconut tarts from 雪园 (a famous cake and pastry coffee shop in Kluang), i started to appreciate it!

I want to try making a coconut tart, and hope i could get the right taste. Well, i need some improvement. The coconut filling smells very NICE! However, i am not very satisfy with the taste. Too plain... should add more sugar and salt for a better taste. Moreover, the coconut flake inside is not yellowish too! Should i add more butter for the yellowish??

For pastry, i follow the Apple Pie pastry recipe.

Please update me if you have a better coconut tarts recipe, ok? ^D^

Blueberry Cheesecake

I try this cheese cake with chocolate sponge cake base. But i think i never did well in the sponge cake. It's not soft at all..... :(

Never mind.... the cheese cake turns out very smooth and silky. Maybe the method of melting the cheese cheese and adding the watery whipping cream did the contribution :)

Steam bake method really make it more presentable ... no cracking and the cream cheese never turn browny around the rim. :)

The combination of blueberry and cheese is really YUMMY!!!
