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.

Marble Castella Cake ~ 长崎蛋糕

What's for tea?  A soft, light and non-greasy Marble Castella ~  Kasutera cake.  I didn't line the pan with foil this time, only with parchment paper and was very pleased that the bottom of the cake didn't stick onto the paper and yielded a perfect brown base.  Indeed a delicious cake to be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Chinese Pumpkin Pancake ~ 金瓜饼

This pumpkin pancake is soft and delicate and not too sweet as the sweetness is only from the red bean paste filling.   For a crispy pancake you can deep-fry them but I chose to just shallow pan-fry them in a non-stick pan.   This is great to serve as a tea-time snack over a cup of brimming hot Chinese tea.
