Indeed, these two combi makes more fragrant fried rice than those that I have cooked last time.

Madeleines

Just that the mould pan is rather small, allows only for 8 madeleines each time. So I got to repeat the baking several times before all batter are used up. I wanted to go DAISO again to purchase another mould pan so that I can put in 2 pans into the oven at one go. But DAISO no longer sells […]
