Muah Chee (soft cakes coated with peanuts) 麻芝

I didn’t really like this snack when i was back in Singapore because i used to hate peanuts. I am more tolerant towards peanuts now, and i actually even started to appreciate freshly grounded peanuts now. I was reminiscing how i would buy this snack while walking through the pasar malams (night markets)  in Singapore. It is always served in a small plastic box together with a few toothpicks, and everyone would share among our families and friends while walking down the night market. I guess i really do miss home, and making this sort of made me happier as i could share with Ben a part of me that he doesn’t have a chance to get in touch with.

Ben is a big fan of all sorts of nutty snacks, and a great lover of desserts! He loves food made with flour, glutinous rice flour, bread flour, any kind of flour! So i thought this is a perfect and quick snack to make for him!
