Green tea Chocolate Bundt Cake


My children presented me with a Bundt cake tin for my recent birthday and I've been thinking of what cake to make with it.  The shape is a bit different from the usual Bundt tins and it's fairly high........ so finally, I decided on a Green tea Chocolate cake. 




I didn't swirl the batter to give it a marble effect as I wanted to see patches of colours for a change. .... so I just loaded on the batters alternatively and let nature takes its course,



The end result wasn't too bad but think the green tea colour is not distinctive enough but then that's the only green tea powder that I could get from the speciality shop.









I like the taste of Green tea and this cake will sure pair well with a cup of hot Green tea!...... Want to try, join me!

Ingredients
  • 16 oz self-raising flour
  • 12 oz butter
  • 9 oz caster sugar
  • 6 eggs - separated
  • 4 oz bittersweet couverture (cooking chocolate) - melted
  • 4  Tbsp milk
  • 2  Tbsp green tea powder
  • 1  tsp vanilla
  • A pinch of salt
  • Icing sugar for decoration - optional
Method
  1. Sift flour with a pinch of salt, set aside.
  2. Melt the chocolate with the milk, set aside.
  3. Whisk the egg whites till stiff, but not dry, set aside.
  4. Cream the buter with sugar till light, fluffy and creamy, add in the egg yolks one at a time, mix well.
  5. Fold in the sifted flour, mix well and add in the vanilla essence.
  6. Fold in the egg whites and mix till well incorporated.
  7. Divide the batter into 2.  Add in the chocolate mixture into one batter, mix well.
  8. Sift in the green tea powder into the other, also mix well.
  9. Spoon batters alternatively into the lightly greased and flour dusted bundt tin.
  10. Bake in preheated oven @ 180 deg C for 50 to 55 mins.  Test with skewer till it comes out clean.
  11. Cool cake in tin for about 10 mins. before removing the tin and let it cool on a wire rack.
  12. Sift on icing sugar generously if desired.


I'm submitting this post to  Aspiring Bakers # 2 : Christmas! (Dec. 2010).  It doesn't look like a  cake for the festive season but then with the icing sugar decor, it does resemble a bit like snow drops.  Anyway, it's up to the organisers/hosts to decide.

  13. The words chocolate and green tea together in a cake was what caught my eye. An unsual combination but looks delicious! And I'm sure it tastes amazing. I never knew the cake with a hole in the middle was called a bundt cake. I wish I could have a piece!

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!

Marble Butter Cake ~ 大理石牛油蛋糕

This is one of the most popular Butter Cake recipes among fellow bloggers and I've read many reviews about this cake.  Credit must be given to Mrs S K Ng for so generously sharing her recipe.   This cake is moist, fluffy, soft, not overly sweet and the texture is just right.  Must admit that this is the best butter cake that I've ever tasted.  I tweaked the recipe to make a Marble Butter Cake instead. So glad to see that there weren't any cracks on the surface although it rose slightly in the middle.

Bika Ambon Panggang ~ 印尼糕

Kuih Bika Ambon or Honeycomb cake is an Indonesian dessert and from the outset it looks quite challenging to attempt baking this cake in order to achieve a honeycomb pattern.   There are many recipes online and I also googled for Indonesian recipes and watched the video on youtube.  I was looking for a recipe that is not so complicating but straightforward and I managed to come across Whattocooktoday's blog and found her recipe.  I was very delighted when the cake turned out to be a success.  Thanks, Marvellina!   Bika Ambon Panggang  ~   印尼糕 ( adapted from  'here'  with adjustments)   Ingredients for : - Yeast mixture 2 tsp dry yeast 1 Tbsp plain flour 1 Tbsp sugar 2 Tbsp warm water Coconut Milk 350 ml coconut milk 160 gm sugar 1/2 tsp turmeric powder 10 kaffir lime leaves (tear to smaller pieces) 2 lemon grass, bruised for flavour Cake Batter 180 gm tapioca flour 1/4 tsp salt 5 large eggs   Method Mix the ingredients in the Yeast mixture and set aside to let it ferment.
