Gula Melaka/Palm Sugar Chiffon Cake ~ 椰糖戚风蛋糕


This Gula Melaka or Palm Sugar Chiffon  Cake is very aromatic and it does taste a bit like butterscotch but this is more rich.   It is soft and fluffy and in this recipe, I used coconut powder dissolved in water instead of coconut milk and the result is not disappointing at all!

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.
