Orange Ogura Cake ~ 香橙相思蛋糕


I  have not baked this Ogura cake for quite a while.  There was so much buzz about this cake amongst the fellow bloggers at one time but looks like the craze has sobered somewhat.  Nonetheless I like the texture of this cake and it's not oily and wholesome.  The texture is more or less like the chiffon  cake but it's more moist.  My cake is a bit short because I used an 8 inch pan as opposed to an 7 inch pan which I do not have.

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!
