Coca Cola Chocolate Slice ~ 可乐巧克力片


To kick-start 2016, I'm sharing with you a sweet and delectable chocolate slice.  Adding some fizzy cola to this chocolatey slice not only makes it soft and moist and with the nutty topping, it's just impossible not to go for a second helping.

  4. Cheah, that slice looks very moist and decadent! I have not drunk Coca Cola for along time because it is too sweet for me. But I guess I can now buy it to bake this cake :)

Kaya Slice ~ 咖椰片

I've tasted vanilla slice before but not Kaya Slice.  My first taste of Kaya Slice was at a fusion cafe in Perth and the combination was truly wonderful.  So when I returned from my vacation, I just had to give it a try with my homemade kaya and believe me, it's real yummy especially if you are a kaya fan.  Serve this as a dessert to jazz up your reunion dinner during this coming Chinese New Year!
