Green tea yoghurt with choc chips



I had a reunion with some of my ex colleagues whom I haven't met since I stopped work ages ago and so I whipped this cake up for them as a dessert.  I was a bit disappointed with the appearance upon cutting it, but nevertheless  gave some to my neighbour, the ex Swiss chef cum my ' food taster', to sample.  I was so delighted when he sms-ed me 'Cake is lovely, thank you.' That lifted up my spirits a little. So don't be misled by outward appearnce for the inside is much to behold, and my ex colleagues gave me the thumbs up too.



Oh, what a disappointment  ..........  the melted choc chips is so messy




fortunately, the taste speaks for itself , the melted choc chips blend well with the Green tea flavour
personally, I find that it's better than with Adzuki beans
~   at least some consolation  ~

  2. Hi Kai Ling
    You can get all the baking ingredients from Intrico, the shop along the same road as Kao Lai dim sum, but it's the next block, in Ipoh Gdn., near the Shell petrol station. It's a 2 shop lot and the green tea powder is kept in the fridge. If you have trouble looking for it, give me a call.
