Homemade Nian Gao/ Tikoy/ Kuih Bakul 自制年糕【传统年糕+快速版】

Nian Gao, translated as Chinese New Year Cake is a kind of sweet sticky rice cake prepared from glutinous rice flour, sugar, and water. Traditionally it is most popular eaten during Chinese New Year. It is considered good luck to eat Nian Gao during this festive season as Chinese believed eating Nian Gao has the symbolism of raising oneself taller, higher, or wealthier in each coming year. 

I love Nian Gao, especially the homemade less-sweet version. There’re two easy methods to make Nian Gao at home. A modern quick version using a pressure cooker and traditional long hours steaming using a slow cooker. Both methods can be done using the Ninja Foodi OP300. You can select Pressure Cook mode for a quick 40mins Nian Gao or use Slow Cook mode to steam overnight if you like traditional Nian Gao. 

Easy homemade Nian Gao – pressure cook 40 mins. 


Easy homemade Nian Gao – slow cook 16 hours.


The Ninja Foodi multi-cooker that I’m using is a combination of a pressure cooker and air fryer in one pot. Besides pressure cook and air frying, there are other functions such as steam, slow cook, sear/ saute, bake/ roast, grill, and keep warm. I also use it for stir-frying dishes with 5 adjustable heat levels.

Method: 

1. Blanch the banana leaves in hot water, pat dry with kitchen towel and line the ramekins. 


Traditional Nian Gao:
Mix all ingredients until the sugar has fully dissolved, pour through a strainer.

Pressure Cook Nian Gao: 
Heat water and sugar till full dissolved, let it cool. Mix the syrup with glutinous rice flour, pour through a strainer.







2.  Pour the mixture into the lined ramekin, cover with aluminum foil, place reversible rack in the Ninja Foodi inner pot. Add in hot water, 6 cups level (slow cook), 4 cups level (pressure cook). 



If you do not have a slow cooker or pressure cooker, I’d highly recommend this Ninja Foodi with multi-functions. Ninja Foodi is a good all-in-one product, just like a portable kitchen with a rice cooker, pressure cooker, air fryer, oven and stovetop functions, reasonable price, and highly versatile. If you’re interested to get it, you can use this best buy promo code: mfa_dingoozatfood  to buy Ninja Foodi at the lowest price 👉S$374.25 (UP: $599). This promo code discount is valid for orders from Singapore and Malaysia via Ninja Kitchen SG Website (I’ve attached the link below👇).

3. Close the pressure lid.  


Pressure Cook method: SEAL. Select Pressure Cook (HI), set 40 mins cook-time.

Slow Cook method: VENT. Select Slow Cook (HI), set 12 hours cook-time. Reset the timer and continue cooking for another 4 hours. 


I’ve tested the Ninja Foodi Slow Cook power consumption. The power consumption is low, it’s ok to use the slow cook mode to cook for long hours, you don’t need to worry about your electricity bill. 😀 
Note: This traditional Nian Gao is a less sweet recipe. Feel free to add more sugar if you like it sweeter, the color and aroma would be better if added more sugar and cook longer. Previously when I did it at my mom’s place, we slow cook Nian Gao for 22 hours to make dark brown color Nian Gao. If you’ve time, you can give it a try!

Coffee Basque Burnt Cheesecake 咖啡口味巴斯克芝士蛋糕

It’s been a while since we last made Basque Burnt Cheesecake. Last year, the boy made this cake for my birthday…


Basque Burnt Cheesecake (lemon flavor), made by the boy, for my birthday.
Photo dated: November 2019.


Previously we baked this cheesecake using an oven. Somehow my oven heat is too gentle, we couldn’t get the “burnt” top with a high-temperature setting. This time, I tried using the Ninja Foodi Bake/Roast mode, lower temperature setting than the oven, shorter baking time, the top is nicely browned, just perfect without a hint of bitterness! Added some coffee layers taste so good!

The Ninja Foodi multi-cooker that I’m using is a combination of a pressure cooker and air fryer in one pot, it’s super-efficient and time-saving. The heat distribution is even and it heats up real fast compared to my other air fryer. The deep pot could prevent oil/ residues splatter all over the crisping lid making it easy to maintain and clean. 
The one in front is my Ninja Foodi OP300 after 6 months of heavy usage, the crisping lid still as good. The one simple step is to wipe it clean with a damp cloth after use. 

Besides pressure cook and air frying, there are other functions such as steam, slow cook, sear/ saute, bake/ roast, grill, and keep warm. I also use it for stir-frying dishes with 5 adjustable heat levels. Overall, Ninja Foodi is a good all-in-one product, just like a portable kitchen with a rice cooker, pressure cooker, air fryer, oven and stovetop functions, reasonable price, and highly versatile.

250g Cream Cheese
70g Castor Sugar
2 Eggs
125g Whipping Cream
10g Cake Flour
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Coffee Paste

Method:

1. Combine cream cheese and sugar in a mixing bowl, whisk until smooth and creamy. 


If you’re not a fan of coffee,
add some lemon juice instead of coffee paste and vanilla. 



2. Whisk in egg one by one, followed by whipping cream. Lastly, add in flour, mix until smooth.

 

3. Pour batter through a sieve evenly into 2 bowls, add vanilla extract and coffee paste in each bowl. Pour into a 6″ round pan lined with parchment paper. Preheat Ninja Foodi Bake/Roast mode 180’C 3mins.


You can bake this in an oven. If you do not have an oven, I’d highly recommend you to get Ninja Foodi for baking. Here’s a special offer to my readers: use this best buy promo code: mfa_dingoozatfood to buy Ninja Foodi at the lowest price in SG & Malaysia 👉$374.25 (UP: $599). This promo code discount is valid for orders from Singapore and Malaysia via Ninja Kitchen SG Website (I’ve attached the link below👇). 

If you’d like to find out more about Ninja Foodi functions and how it works, watch the video below:

Someone’s playing with the batter… 😀 

Don’t try drawing nice patterns on the basque burnt cheesecake,
it can’t be seen after baking! 😀 

4. Bake 25 mins. Remove the cake and let it cool on the rack. The cake is jiggly and the center of the cake is very soft at this point, refrigerate overnight before cutting and serving. 


This cheesecake texture is creamy and soft as my kid doesn’t like gooey cheesecake. If you like it gooey at the center, use a higher temperature, shorter baking time. If you’d like to bake this in an oven, you may use this temperature and baking time as reference: 200’C-220’C 30mins, adjust the temperature based on your oven heat.

Bread Pudding is a bread-based dessert, made with stale bread, milk, egg and cream. The bread soaked in custard mixture, mixed with other ingredients such as dried fruits, ham or a variety of other ingredients depending on whether the pudding is sweet or savory. Usually baked in an oven for 40-45 minutes. 

Don’t worry, this recipe that I’m sharing here is a quick and easy method, made using Ninja Foodi. The total time needed from preparation to serve is under 20 minutes. If you are a “fast hand fast leg 快手快脚” person, you can get it done in 15 minutes. 
The Ninja Foodi multi-cooker that I’m using is a combination of a pressure cooker and air fryer in one pot, it’s super-efficient and time-saving. It only takes 3-5 minutes to preheat the pot, only need 10 minutes to cook the bread pudding to perfection. 
Besides pressure cook and air frying, there are other functions such as steam, slow cook, sear/ saute, bake/ roast, grill, and keep warm. I also use it for stir-frying dishes with the 5 adjustable heat levels.
Overall, Ninja Foodi is a good all-in-one product, just like a portable kitchen with a rice cooker, pressure cooker, air fryer, oven and stovetop functions, reasonable price, and highly versatile.
