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.

Soy Sauce Chicken ~ 豉油鸡

  This is a very common dish but delicious and appetising.  The method of cooking this dish is less labour intensive and does not incur frying.  I marinated the whole legs of chicken overnight which made them more tasty and the sauce is the essence of this dish.  You can also throw in some hard boiled eggs and with a veggie dish on the side, you can serve this with plain white rice or plain congee.
