Yummy Chinese egg tarts! This recipe makes 22 (7cm) tarts. First, mix up a batch of shortcrust pastry, then fill them with egg custard and bake.

This dessert is a wonderful change from banana fritters. Apple chunks are fried in batter, then coated in caramel and sprinkled with sesame seeds.

These cocktail buns are filled with a creamy coconut filling. They are absolutely delicious and great to serve as a snack, with dim sum or as a sweet ending to a Chinese meal. Yum!

I made this on a whim but it makes a deliciously different dessert. Reminds me of the banana fritters we used to get in our local Chinese when I was a teenager. Serve warm with a little vanilla ice cream.

This is a very easy recipe for Chinese egg tarts. Feel free to reduce or increase the sugar used in the pastry and the filling to suit your tastes. Wonderful to serve if you are having a Chinese dinner party.

This cake is cooked in a bamboo steamer over boiling water. The results are a light, moist sponge. Dust with icing sugar before serving.

This is a Chinese dessert made by blending chopped lychees with gelatine, water, sugar and full fat milk. The result is a sweet and fruity jelly. It's delicious when served with evaporated milk.

This is an old Chinese favourite for dessert. Unsweetened soya milk can be substituted for milk.

A delicious and simple Chinese dessert. A wonderful egg custard is made by combining rock sugar, water, full fat milk and eggs, then gently steamed until set. Perfect!

These sweet and flavourful chestnuts are served warm. They are a very popular street treat in China but this is my homemade version.
