Pomelo Pound Cake ~ 柚子 蛋糕


Someone posted a Pomelo cake recipe on FB recently which prompted me to give it a try.   Since pomeloes are also  citrus fruits, I adapted the recipe from my Orange Cupcake post, 'here'  and the result was a moist, not too sweet delicious pound cake which tasted much better the next day!




Recipe for Pomelo Pound Cake ~ 柚子 蛋糕 
    Ingredients
  • 250 gm butter
  • 250 gm self-raising flour
  • 179 gm caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp pomelo zest (add more if you wish)
  • 85 ml blended pomelo juice
  • a pinch of salt
Method
  1. Sift the self-raising flour with the salt, keep aside.
  2. Beat butter, pomelo zest and sugar till light and fluffy.
  3. Add in eggs one at a time, mix well.
  4. Fold in the sifted flour alternating with the pomelo juice till well incorporated.
  5. Pour the  batter into a prepared loaf pan.  Lightly tap the pan on the worktop a few times to expel any air pockets.
  6. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg.C for 45 mins.  Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.
  7. Remove from oven and let cool in the pan for about 10 mins., after which, lift the cake onto a wire rack to cool completely.

    1. Thank you. There's not much pomelo aroma, perhaps more zest will do the trick!

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.
