Japanese cheesecake or huat kueh?

Howdy! It’s baking day for the kids again and they can’t get enough of it. In the past, I used to be the person-in-command. It’s always me who will decide what to bake and what are the steps. Time has changed. Now my boy is the person-in-command. He will always tell me what he wants to bake and will read out the recipe for me. Of course, if I don’t have the necessary ingredients, they will still have to follow my final decision. Is that good or bad? You decide… 😉

Now that my boy knows how to read and has become more “daring”. He will follow the instructions on the recipe and weigh out all the ingredients, with me and his sister as his assistants. My little girl will also wants to make the decision too! She will deicide how long to beat the egg whites. Recipe has been asking for soft peak but she insisted on beating it longer and, thus,it turned out to be stiff. Anyway, we continued on with our “work”, keeping my fingers crossed that the cake is edible later on. LOL!

The batter is ready and the kids can’t wait to pour it out onto each little baking cups.

Finally, their favourite steps: sprinkling of chocolate chips and chocolate rice! 

You can see the mess that the little one has created (from the above picture) and my boy even spilled the whole bowl of chocolate rice onto the floor. Am I angry? No. They just have to clean it up while I was transferring the cakes into the oven. 

Every few minutes, the kids will popped over at the oven to have a look at how the cakes progressing. To my horror, it became huat kueh!!! I guess it was due to the “overbeating” of the egg whites?!?! 

Ding!! Our little cakes are ready. We took out the cakes from the oven and the kids were happy at how the cakes turned out and they can’t wait to try it out. Surprisingly, the cakes tasted really good! It was really spongy and soft. Good job, my little ones!!
