Welcome aboard, Sharon!

We’re excited to introduce you all to Sharon Wong, M.Ed. and author of Nut Free Wok! Nut Free Wok is a blog about Allergy Aware Asian Fare. While Sharon’s family is very conscious of food allergies, they are not strangers to flavor or fun! We love Sharon’s thorough approach to each of her ingredients and recipes. And we are thrilled that Rodelle’s products align with Sharon’s family’s needs. We think that your family (whatever your eating style) will find a recipe that they will love on Sharon’s site!

For Sharon’s first post as an official Rodelle Brand Ambassador, she made a traditional Malaysian Cake. According to Sharon, “Ma Lai Go, also known as Malaysian Cake or Malay Cake, is a beloved traditional Chinese dim sum dessert (“lai” sounds like lie). Heads turn when a server walks around a dim sum restaurant and yelling “Ma Lai Go!” It’s one of my mom’s favorite desserts and one of our family friends, Auntie Karen gave me her recipe years ago (thank you!!). It makes me so happy to see my family enjoy this treat worry-free.”

We love the double dose of vanilla extract that Sharon adds to her Ma Lai Go cake and hope you’ll try her family recipe!

Chocolate Oreo Cake

Chocolate-Oreo-Cake-1-from-willcookforsmiles.com_

Sometimes we all need a dessert that takes it to the next level. This Chocolate Oreo Cake does just that! Originally developed for Rodelle by Lyuba at Will Cook for Smiles, this cake is beyond heavenly. Lyuba created a soft, moist cake base with a lot of Rodelle Gourmet Baking Cocoa and kept adding in some of our favorite flavors. With all of the chocolate flavor in the cake from the world’s best cocoa powder (we aren’t biased or anything), the frosting keeps things light and airy with a cream cheese base. But don’t worry – we’ve added crushed Oreos into the light frosting to keep the Oreo theme going. With three layers of rich, homemade chocolate cake and the Oreo Cream Cheese Frosting, we could have stopped there. But, why would we!?

Top your cake off with a homemade or store-bought hot fudge, more Oreos and you’ll have a cake that everyone keeps coming back to for seconds and thirds. But, don’t take our word for it, try the recipe and let us know what you think!
