Green tea yoghurt with choc chips



I had a reunion with some of my ex colleagues whom I haven't met since I stopped work ages ago and so I whipped this cake up for them as a dessert.  I was a bit disappointed with the appearance upon cutting it, but nevertheless  gave some to my neighbour, the ex Swiss chef cum my ' food taster', to sample.  I was so delighted when he sms-ed me 'Cake is lovely, thank you.' That lifted up my spirits a little. So don't be misled by outward appearnce for the inside is much to behold, and my ex colleagues gave me the thumbs up too.



Oh, what a disappointment  ..........  the melted choc chips is so messy




fortunately, the taste speaks for itself , the melted choc chips blend well with the Green tea flavour
personally, I find that it's better than with Adzuki beans
~   at least some consolation  ~

  2. Hi Kai Ling
    You can get all the baking ingredients from Intrico, the shop along the same road as Kao Lai dim sum, but it's the next block, in Ipoh Gdn., near the Shell petrol station. It's a 2 shop lot and the green tea powder is kept in the fridge. If you have trouble looking for it, give me a call.

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.
