Banana Chiffon Cake





"A Banana a day keeps the doctor away" - as compared to an Apple, it has four times protein, twice the carbohydrates, three times the phosphorous, five times vitamin 'A' and iron and twice the other vitamins and minerals. Being an inexpensive supplement, it can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, thus making it a must add to our daily diet.

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

Sweet potato steamed cake ~ 红薯蒸蛋糕

After making the  Okinawan black sugar steamed cakes, I  made these and this time  added in some sweet potatoes.  These are moist, not overly sweet and can be enjoyed as a healthy breakfast or served with  a hot pot of brewed tea to snack on.
