Blueberry yoghurt coffee cake


Don't be misconstrued by the word 'coffee' in this 'Blueberry yoghurt coffee cake' as coffee is certainly not an ingredient required in the making of this cake.  Coffee cake is just a class of cakes to be served alongside coffee or tea for breakfast, during coffee/tea breaks or even afternoon tea.  Some may have a streusel or a light glaze drizzle as topping but more often than not  they are flavoured with spices, nuts or fruits.












This cake is moist, not heavy but rich in flavour and the blueberries do add a little bit of texture to the cake.  Coffee, any one?

  8. Ha ha, the first time I saw a recipe for coffee cake, i was confused when I looked at the ingredients and there was no coffee :) Your cake looks beautifully moist. I love the shape too, I can never get my cake to come out of the bundt pan cleanly.

    Oh yes, you can. Just lightly grease the pan then sprinkle some flour over it, shake off any excess flour. But then the specks of flour may create holes on the surface of the cake

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.

Turmeric chicken (2) ~ 黄 姜 鸡

A lot has been said about the nutrients and health benefits of adding turmeric to our diet.  Not only is turmeric a good source of manganese and iron, it also helps to lower blood triglycerides after a meal.  Moreover it helps to add more colour to a dish as you can see from this Turmeric Chicken dish which I'm sharing with you today.

Curry Chicken Puff ~ 咖哩鸡角

This is a 'cheat' version of curry puffs.  Why do I say 'cheat'?  Because the puff pastries were store bought.  It's very much easier to make these curry puffs snack with instant pastry for if I were to make the pastries from scratch it's going to be very tedious.  Also, shaping and baking them in a muffin pan is less time consuming.  Enjoy!
