Honey Blue Pea Flower Chiffon Cake ~ 蜜糖蓝豌豆花戚风蛋糕

I have posted a Blue pea chiffon cake before but this time I tried making it into a two-tone chiffon cake and the recipe is slightly different.  Although the recipes are different with the former adding cornflour and the latter adding rice flour, the end result is about the same, yieldig a soft, moist and light cake.

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.
