Green tea Marble Yoghurt Cake




Following the goodness from consuming Green Tea, here's another
recipe that I churned out.

Recipe for Green tea Marble Yoghurt Cake

Ingredients :
  • 6 oz Plain Flour
  • 3/4  Teasp. Baking Powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 4.1/2 oz  Caster sugar
  • 1/2  Cup Cannola/Corn Oil
  • 1/2  Cup Yoghurt
  • 1  Teasp. Vanilla
  • 2  Tablespoons Greentea powder
  • 1  Teasp. lukewarm water
  • 1/2  Cup Adzuki Beans (Discard the syrup)
  • Pinch of salt
Method :
  1. Discard the syrup from the Adzuki beans and coat with some flour.  Set aside.
  2. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.
  3. Cream the eggs with the sugar till creamy, add in the oil, then the yoghurt, followed by the vanilla.
  4. Gradually fold in the flour and blend thoroughly.
  5. Mix the greentea powder with the lukewarm water to a paste.
  6. Divide the batter into 2 portions.  Add the greentea paste into one portion and leave the other plain.  No need to swirl.
  7. Pour half the batter into a lightly greased and floured Bundt cake tin.  Toss in the flour coated Adzuki beans.
  8. Cover with the balance batter.
  9. Bake in a preheated oven @ 350deg.F/180deg.C for about 35 to 40 minutes.  Test with skewer till it comes out clean.
Note :
  1. Coat the Adzuki beans with about 2 Teasp of flour not from the above 6 oz. plain flour.  This is to absorb the moisture in the beans to prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the cake.
  2. The marbling effect is not so distinct in this cake, perhaps need to add 1/2 Teasp more of Green Tea powder.

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try. 

Tau Yu Bak ~ Braised Pork Belly in Soy Sauce ( 豆油肉 )

  'Tau you bak' in Hokkien or 'Braised Pork Belly in Soy Sauce' in Cantonese is a very homey dish.  The main sauces are light and dark soy sauce with the addition of some spices like cinnamon, pepper and star anise and in this recipe I also added some oyster sauce, which is optional.  The addition of hard boiled eggs infused with the intense gravy makes this a very delicious and tasty dish.  Pair it with some sambal belacan to make it more appetising and appealing. Tau Yu Bak  ~   Braised Pork Belly in Soy Sauce ( 豆油肉 ) Ingredients 700 gm pork belly cut into 1.1/2 inch 1 Tbsp oyster sauce 1 Tbsp light soy sauce 1.1/2 Tbsp dark soy sauce 8 cloves garlic 1 cinnamon stick 2 star anise some pepper rock sugar to taste Hard boiled eggs Method Marinate the pork belly with oyster and light soy sauce for a few hours or preferably overnight. Saute the garlic with cinnamon stick and star anise with some oil in a wok. Toss in the marinated pork.  Stir-fry, add in the some hot water

French Butter Cookies : Palets Bretons or Galette Bretonne ~ 法式奶油曲奇饼

  There are many names for this butter cookie.  Galette Bretonne, Palets Bretons, Sables or simply put French Butter Cookies which orginated from Brittany in the North-West of France where it's famous for its high quality salted butter.  In French,  Sable means Sandy and Breton refers to Bretagne region.  So literally it's Sandy Cookies from Brittany. They are somewhat like shortbread but richer because of the addition of egg yolk, flat, sweetish, a wee bit salty, crunchy and always with their signature criss-cross pattern on top.  These salted, golden cookies are very addictive and you simply can't stop at one and it's perfect for tea time.  As I prefer more bite to this cookie, I opted to use caster sugar and if you like to try with a different flavour of French Butter Cokies, do hop over to  Anncoo's  post.
