    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 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!
