Orange Friand with Fig Preserve ~ 无花果费南雪


Easy to make with only a few ingredients and punctuated with a slight sweetness of fig preserve, these little Friands are ideal to serve for tea or a get together with friends.  There's no creaming of butter and sugar, just melting some butter and light whisking of egg whites which is not time consuming and which can be prepared in a jiffy.

  2. Yummm.... looks so tempting ! I actually just got back from Hospital Muar last night. Hubby has been admitted to hospital on the 14th June and just discharged last night. Malaria fever. However, he is recovering pretty fast and the doctor allowed him to go back and rest at home. As for me, I am exhausted. Need some rest. Have a great week ahead.
    Blessings, Kristy

  One of my family's favourite to have for breakfast or tea is the evergreen Chiffon Cake, be it in whatever flavour.   I have posted different flavours of chiffon cakes on my blog and this time I used matcha powder, and chocolate powder mixed with matcha powder not only for flavour but to create some swirl patterns.  As always chiffon cakes are light, airy, soft and most delectable.
