Chocolate Orange Cake



This 'Chocolate Orange Cake' is from the same recipe as my earlier post on 'Chocolate Lemon Cake', except that I substituted lemon with orange rind and juice and given the cake a 'facelift'.  I added a chocolate topping trimmed with orange peel for decoration ...... not very good at it though, still plenty of room for improvement!












Ingredients for Chocolate topping
  • 4 oz dark cooking chocolate, break into smaller pieces
  • 3  Tbsp water
  • 1  tsp olive/salad oil
Method
  1. Steam/melt the chocolate with water and keep stirring over low heat.
  2. Once the chocolate has melted and it's creamy, add in the oil and turn off the heat.
  3. Mix well and pour over the cooled cake.
  4. Decorate with nuts or fruits of your choice.
In my case, I just sprinkled some shredded orange peel round the edge of the cake.

Yam Puff ~ 'Wu Kok'

This is one of the must-have items whenever we go for have dim-sum ...... 'Wu Kok' or Yam dumplings.  Initially I had a hard time struggling with the soft and sticky dough in the hot and stuffy kitchen, but fortunately after chilling it in the fridge for 50 mins., it could be 'man-handled' quite easily!  Phew, not too bad as this is my first attempt!

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.
