Kahlua Almond Cupcakes ~ 咖啡力娇酒杏仁蛋糕

I used the Marble Butter Cake recipe to make these cupcakes and added in some Kahlua liqueur.  There's no distinctive colour of the Kahlua liqueur in these cupcakes but it lends added flavour to the cake while the almond paste keeps the cake moist.  The coffee taste of the liqueur does blend well with the almond paste filling.

Chocolate and Matcha Chiffon Cake ~ 巧克力抹茶戚风蛋糕

  One of my family's favourite to have for breakfast or tea is the evergreen Chiffon Cake, be it in whatever flavour.   I have posted different flavours of chiffon cakes on my blog and this time I used matcha powder, and chocolate powder mixed with matcha powder not only for flavour but to create some swirl patterns.  As always chiffon cakes are light, airy, soft and most delectable.
