Green tea Marble Yoghurt Cake




Following the goodness from consuming Green Tea, here's another
recipe that I churned out.

Recipe for Green tea Marble Yoghurt Cake

Ingredients :
  • 6 oz Plain Flour
  • 3/4  Teasp. Baking Powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 4.1/2 oz  Caster sugar
  • 1/2  Cup Cannola/Corn Oil
  • 1/2  Cup Yoghurt
  • 1  Teasp. Vanilla
  • 2  Tablespoons Greentea powder
  • 1  Teasp. lukewarm water
  • 1/2  Cup Adzuki Beans (Discard the syrup)
  • Pinch of salt
Method :
  1. Discard the syrup from the Adzuki beans and coat with some flour.  Set aside.
  2. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.
  3. Cream the eggs with the sugar till creamy, add in the oil, then the yoghurt, followed by the vanilla.
  4. Gradually fold in the flour and blend thoroughly.
  5. Mix the greentea powder with the lukewarm water to a paste.
  6. Divide the batter into 2 portions.  Add the greentea paste into one portion and leave the other plain.  No need to swirl.
  7. Pour half the batter into a lightly greased and floured Bundt cake tin.  Toss in the flour coated Adzuki beans.
  8. Cover with the balance batter.
  9. Bake in a preheated oven @ 350deg.F/180deg.C for about 35 to 40 minutes.  Test with skewer till it comes out clean.
Note :
  1. Coat the Adzuki beans with about 2 Teasp of flour not from the above 6 oz. plain flour.  This is to absorb the moisture in the beans to prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the cake.
  2. The marbling effect is not so distinct in this cake, perhaps need to add 1/2 Teasp more of Green Tea powder.

Gula Melaka Kuih Talam ~ 椰香打南糕

After successfully making the  Kuih Talam  with much trial and error, I ventured into trying out making this Gula Melaka Kuih Talam.  What is gula melaka one may ask?  Simply put, it's just palm sugar made from coconut palm.  The slightly saltish top coconut layer pairs very well with the dark and intense flavour of the palm sugar from the bottom layer, and this kuih can be served for breakfast or snack on at any time of the day.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
