Japanese Green Tea Pound Cake



I recently received an email on the many wonders of Green Tea and as I do have some Green Tea powder sitting in my fridge, whipped up this recipe.



Recipe for Japanese Green Tea Pound Cake

Ingredients :
  • 8 oz Butter/Margarine
  • 8 oz Plain/All Purpose Flour
  • 4 Eggs
  • 6 oz Caster Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Japanese Green Tea Powder
  • 1 Teasp. Baking Powder
  • 2 Teasp. Vanilla
  • A pinch of Salt
  • 60 gm Chocolate Chips or Canned Adzuki (Kidney beans) - Optional
Method :

1. Sift the flour with the baking powder, salt and mix in the green tea powder, set aside.
2. Cream butter/margarine with the caster sugar till light and fluffy.
3. Add in the eggs, one at a time. Add in vanilla.
4. Fold in the flour mixture and mix well. Pour batter into a greased and floured 8 inch square or round baking pan.
5. Bake in preheated oven @ 350 deg.F/180 deg.C for about 45 minutes. Insert skewer in the centre of the cake, till it comes out clean.
Note :
(i) If chocolate chips/Adzuki beans are added, do so after adding in the flour.
(ii) If Adzuki beans are used, discard the syrup, and coat them with a little flour to prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the cake.

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.

Pandan Angku Kuih ~ 班兰叶龟糕

I've never thought of making Angku Kuih or Red Tortoise Cake simply because it's so readily available in my daily market place.  But there have been so many posts of this traditional kuih by my fellow food bloggers and  they look so cute and beautiful that I just cannot resist the temptation of not trying my hands at it.

I must admit that making this kuih can be rather tedious and the amount of work can really make your head spin.  But if you prepare the mung bean filling a day ahead, then it does help to lighten your work quite a fair bit.  For all the  effort, these Pandan Angku Kuih came out beautifully.  To see how the kuih will be like the next day, I kept some in a container at room temperature.  To my surprise the skin of the kuih stayed soft till late the next day.  I didn't have to steam them again.  All I can say is that my efforts paid off handsomely and I'm so pleased.  Now, I've no qualms  experimenting this Angku Kuih with different flavours :)

Country style steam chicken

This is one simple recipe of  steamed chicken dish which I'm sure many bloggers have blogged before.  Tasty yet easy and quick to prepare, this dish pairs very well with steamy hot white rice.
