Mandarin yoghurt slice



With Mandarin oranges aplenty at this time of the year I was toying with the idea of baking a cake with these sweet-tangy citrus.   The cake was moist and dense but on the whole it was delicious served as breakfast, tea or as a snack.  What I liked most was the crispy sugary crust.

  6. I think this recipe is great seeing that the fresh mandarins didn't bleed into the cake batter.

    1. Yes, I thought that the mandarins would be covered up by the batter while baking. Good thing they stayed 'afloat'.

  9. Love the step by step photos and can't wait to make it but you don't mention what temperature the oven should be. Would I be correct in guessing 180'?

Cherry Loaf Cake ~ 樱桃蛋糕

I baked this old-fashioned Cherry Loaf using the Marble Butter cake recipe but adjusted the recipe as I only used three eggs instead of four to fit into the loaf pan.   I remember that when I was little, I was attracted by the red cherries as any other kid and would gingerly take them out and eat them first.    The cake was secondary.  This cake is soft and moist infused with the sweet glace cherries giving it a lovely combination of flavours.
