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.

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.

Ondeh Ondeh Pandan Cupcakes ~ 香兰小蛋糕

Ondeh Ondeh are green coloured and pandan flavoured glutinous rice balls with gula melaka or palm sugar filling, coated with freshly grated coconut.  We call it 'Kuih'.  Ondeh Ondeh cake is entirely different from this 'Kuih'.
I don't know how the name 'Ondeh Ondeh cake' came about but I guess it's because of the colour and the ingredients which are somewhat similar to that of the 'kuih'.
This pandan flavoured Ondeh Ondeh cupcake is moist, soft and slightly spongy and the gula melaka filling blends awfully well with the pandan and 'santan'/coconut milk.  A wonderful tea-time snack or a delectable dessert, any time!
