Greentea choco marble cake



This recipe was taken from Wen's Delight, Mini Marble Mocha Cake  who had modified the recipe from Sonia's Marble chocolate cupcakes post.  I tweaked it a bit by adding green tea powder, reduced the chocolate powder as I was afraid that the amount would make the cake bitter.  Also added more milk to the chocolate mixture as I found the consistency a bit stiff. The result? Moist and flavourful mini loaves with a wonderful combination of greentea and chocolate flavour.  


















Recipe for Greentea choco marble cake   (Adapted from Wen's Delight with modification)

Ingredients
  • 150 gm butter
  • 140 gm caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 200 gm self-raising flour (sifted)
  • 4.1/2  Tbsp milk
  • 20 gm chocolate/cocoa powder
  • 1  tsp greentea powder
Method
  1. Use a handheld whisk to whisk butter, sugar, eggs, milk (3 Tbsp) and sifted flour till just smooth.
  2. Divide batter into 2 portions, sieve chocolate powder and add 1.1/2  Tbsp milk into one portion, mix well.
  3. Sieve greentea powder into the other portion, mix well.
  4. Using a teaspoon, alternate the batter into a lightly greased and flour dusted mini loaf pan till 3/4 full.  Use a skewer to give the batter a swirl.
  5. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg C for 18 - 20 mins. until golden brown.  Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.
  6. Let the loaves cool in the pan for 10 mins. before removing them to cool completely on a wire rack.

    1. You can also try without swirling the batter, just alternate the colours and let nature takes its course, will give good result too.

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.

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.

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…
