Sweet potato steamed cake ~ 红薯蒸蛋糕


After making the  Okinawan black sugar steamed cakes, I  made these and this time  added in some sweet potatoes.  These are moist, not overly sweet and can be enjoyed as a healthy breakfast or served with  a hot pot of brewed tea to snack on.

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try.
