Fruit Pastry Cake ~ Revisited


I made this again for a friend's birthday.  I doubled the recipe and made it into a 9 inch square cake.  As it's thicker and bigger the cake took an extra 10 mins. baking time and do remember to cover it with foil for the remaining 15 mins.  As it is now, compared to my previous post, this cake is more brown. 



Before and after baking.



After applying some 'make-up' ..... it certainly  looks pretty!




Do check out the  Recipe from here.

Matcha/Green Tea Pound Cake ~ 抹茶磅蛋糕

I was so pleased when I saw the nice green colour of this pound cake after I removed it from the oven, for true to the recommendation by the lady at the shop where I usually get my ingredients, she assured me that I won't be disappointed.  Yes, it is green and not pale or brownish.  The homemade red bean paste complimented well with the green tea and the cake stayed moist and soft even after three days kept in an airtight container, refrigerated.
