Greentea choco marble cake



This recipe was taken from Wen's Delight, Mini Marble Mocha Cake  who had modified the recipe from Sonia's Marble chocolate cupcakes post.  I tweaked it a bit by adding green tea powder, reduced the chocolate powder as I was afraid that the amount would make the cake bitter.  Also added more milk to the chocolate mixture as I found the consistency a bit stiff. The result? Moist and flavourful mini loaves with a wonderful combination of greentea and chocolate flavour.  


















Recipe for Greentea choco marble cake   (Adapted from Wen's Delight with modification)

Ingredients
  • 150 gm butter
  • 140 gm caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 200 gm self-raising flour (sifted)
  • 4.1/2  Tbsp milk
  • 20 gm chocolate/cocoa powder
  • 1  tsp greentea powder
Method
  1. Use a handheld whisk to whisk butter, sugar, eggs, milk (3 Tbsp) and sifted flour till just smooth.
  2. Divide batter into 2 portions, sieve chocolate powder and add 1.1/2  Tbsp milk into one portion, mix well.
  3. Sieve greentea powder into the other portion, mix well.
  4. Using a teaspoon, alternate the batter into a lightly greased and flour dusted mini loaf pan till 3/4 full.  Use a skewer to give the batter a swirl.
  5. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg C for 18 - 20 mins. until golden brown.  Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.
  6. Let the loaves cool in the pan for 10 mins. before removing them to cool completely on a wire rack.

    1. You can also try without swirling the batter, just alternate the colours and let nature takes its course, will give good result too.

Steamed egg with minced pork ~ 猪肉蒸水蛋

This is a super comforting home-cooked dish which requires only a few ingredients.   An easy to go recipe, I added minced pork to give the dish more volume.   Kids as well as adults will love the silken smooth egg interspersed with bits of juicy meat.   Great to serve over hot rice!

Wife Biscuit (Lo Por Paeng) 老婆餅

Happy New Year, everyone!   My first post for 2015 is 'Wife Biscuit' aka 'Lo Por Paeng', a soft and flaky pastry with winter melon filling which is a very popular delicacy in Hong Kong.  The ones that I find here are not the same as their  flaky counterparts, instead they are crispy and thin.   I've been surfing the internet for a recipe and I was very happy when I stumbled upon a Youtube video from SiuKitchen.   The video is in Cantonese and she gives very detailed steps on how to make these flaky pastries.   The pastries were good and stayed flaky and soft for three days in an airtight container.  I needn't have to reheat them in the oven toaster.

Chai Tea Snowskin mini Mooncake 2020 ~ 柴茶冰皮月饼

This time, I experimented with Chai Tea to act as a flavour for the dough skin of this 'Bing Pi',  冰皮 mooncake.  These non-baked snowskin mooncakes are soft, slightly chewy and can be referred to as mochi mooncake too.  Nowadays snowskin mooncakes are gaining popularity and like their baked counterparts, they can house different flavours of lotus paste as well.
