After savouring a spicy meal, time for some  not overly sweet relaxing dessert.  The weather has been crazy these past few weeks, hot and humid which makes one feel sweaty, lethargic and irritable.  So this comfortable dessert is what we need right now to keep our heads and bodies Cool!

    2. Using a ball whisk, whisk egg yolks with the sugar till smooth, set aside.
    3. Place milk and cream in a saucepan, heat gently, adding in the vanilla seeds.  Once milk starts to foam up, remove from heat.
    4. Gradually, pour this into the egg mixture, whisking continously not to cook the eggs.  Add in the beetroot pureee, mix well.

  11. Hi, Cheah, beetroot by itself tastes a bit sour, isn't it, so this beetroot ice-cream must be very refreshing!An ice-cream maker here can be as cheap as just $20-$30 but I'm really curious how good they are compares to a good brand. Anyway, it is something that I'm hesitating to buy.

    1. The ice cream doesn't taste sour at all, really can't tell there's beet in it. I'm using a Cuisinart ice cream maker, so far so good.

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try. 

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.

  One of my family's favourite to have for breakfast or tea is the evergreen Chiffon Cake, be it in whatever flavour.   I have posted different flavours of chiffon cakes on my blog and this time I used matcha powder, and chocolate powder mixed with matcha powder not only for flavour but to create some swirl patterns.  As always chiffon cakes are light, airy, soft and most delectable.
