Dilmah Tea Loaf


As I've seen quite a number of Earl Grey Tea bakes on the internet so I thought I'll try to bake one with  Dilmah Tea instead.  I've been drinking Dilmah Tea for years and since it's on hand, I just used it in this bake.  To me tea is tea, only a different brand and a different flavour.  This is a very simple recipe, you don't need to cart out your mixer, all you've got to do is to just mix up all the ingredients in a mixing bowl, pour into a pan and bake.  It's that easy.   Minimum labour yet with a handsome reward ..... a delicious tea bread for your tea, breakfast or snack!

    1. I do switch the brands sometimes but still fall back on Dilmah. Maybe I should try Ahmad's Earl Grey too.

  3. Hi Cheah, a tea infused cake sounds really nice, i noticed there is no mention of either butter or oil. No need to add any?

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!
