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.

  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.

Matcha/Green Tea Pound Cake ~ 抹茶磅蛋糕

I was so pleased when I saw the nice green colour of this pound cake after I removed it from the oven, for true to the recommendation by the lady at the shop where I usually get my ingredients, she assured me that I won't be disappointed.  Yes, it is green and not pale or brownish.  The homemade red bean paste complimented well with the green tea and the cake stayed moist and soft even after three days kept in an airtight container, refrigerated.
