Lemon Dragon Fruit Poke Cake ~ 柠檬火龙果蛋糕


I came across this recipe in a Coles magazine and just couldn't wait to give it a try.  Instead of blueberry sauce I used dragon fruit to make the sauce as I was confident that the purplish colour of the dragon fruit would also stand out in this cake.  And I was not wrong!

Chicken Floss Chiffon Cake ~ 鸡松戚风蛋糕

I kick start 2019 with  this  post  ....... Chicken Floss Chiffon Cake. 
This is another cake with a layer of chicken floss and topped with more chicken floss and a sprinkling of lightly toasted sesame seeds.  This time I baked this with my normal chiffon cake recipe.  The recipe is slightly different from the Chicken Floss Cake which I posted not too long ago.  But if you ask me, both cakes are equally good in texture and delicious.  Yumm is the word!
