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.

Biscoff Butter Cake ~ 牛油蛋糕

The recipe for this Biscoff Butter Cake is similar to my earlier post of Marble Butter Cake, just that I added an extra ingredient which is, crushed Biscoff cookies.    Instead of mixing the crushed cookies into the batter, I just sprinkled them on top of the first layer of batter and then cover with the remaining batter.   This cake is soft and moist with good texture ..... definitely a recipe for keeps!

Salted egg yolk cookies ~ 咸蛋黄酥饼 ~ CNY 2016

Salted egg yolk recipes are getting very popular these days.  There are salted egg yolk with crabs, salted egg yolk with chicken, salted egg yolk with bittergourd and salted egg yolk bun, just to name a few.  Being the inquisitive me, I tried baking the salted egg yolk cookies just to taste what's it like.   It's quite difficult to describe the taste, it's neither totally sweet nor totally savoury, it's a blend of both which makes it unique, yet delicious.


I like the small bits of salted egg yolk in the dough.  I let the dough rest in the refrigerator for more than 2 hours and it was more pliable to handle.
