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!

Chicken Floss Cake ~ 鸡肉松蛋糕

It's normal to find buns coated with meat floss in any bakery, but yet to find a meat floss coated piece of cake.  I saw this Chicken Floss Cake on youtube and was eager to give this a shot.  The recipe is quite similar to a chiffon cake and I was curious to find out the taste which should be slightly sweetish and saltish.  Wouldn't it be weird, I wonder.  But it turned out that the taste is rather unique with a light and soft texture and my family members gave me a thumbs up and asked for more!
