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!

Pandan Coconut Milk Bread ~ 香兰椰奶面包

  I made  this bread using the Wool Roll bread recipe and just substituted milk with coconut milk, added a bit of pandan paste and instead of melted butter, I used cooking oil.  Feel free to use coconut oil if you have it at hand.  This bread is soft and light and it stayed fresh till after the third day in a container, at room temperature.  You can eat it on its own accompanied with a cup of hot kopi O or slathered with butter and in my case, peanut butter.

Yam Puff ~ 'Wu Kok'

This is one of the must-have items whenever we go for have dim-sum ...... 'Wu Kok' or Yam dumplings.  Initially I had a hard time struggling with the soft and sticky dough in the hot and stuffy kitchen, but fortunately after chilling it in the fridge for 50 mins., it could be 'man-handled' quite easily!  Phew, not too bad as this is my first attempt!

Mixed Fruit Bread ~ 杂果面包

Homemade bread is always more nutritious than those bought from the supermarkets.  For one I don't add any bread improver or preservatives to my bread making.  Store bought ones may be fresh but they have loads of preservatives added to prolong their shelf life.  When I make bread I can control the ingredients that I want to put into my bread and I can customise the flavour and I find that kneading the dough can be quite therapeutic too!
