Combine all the ingredients and continue to knead till the dough turns smooth and elastic.

Deflate and shape accordingly.
Set aside to proof. 
Preheat oven at 200C and then bake at 180C for 20mins.

Cream Cheese Ogura Cake


The Chinese Seventh Month , not a good month for kids and myself. Because all of us were sick during this period. I wanted to finish the cream cheese  in the fridge, so decided to bake one ogura cake for everyone. Fortunately, it turned out good.
