Rose Apple Chiffon Cake ~ 苹果花型戚风蛋糕


Lately, I have seen many Rose Apple Cake posts on FB, some are chiffon cakes while some are ogura cakes.  I was mesmerised by the fellow bloggers' skill in creating such a pretty cake and just can't wait to try my hands at baking one.

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.
