Banana Cocoa Chiffon Cake ~ 香蕉可可雪纺蛋糕


I have posted many chiffon cake recipes in my blog and now at a loss of what other 'creations' that I should concoct to share.  Fortunately, for chiffon cakes, one can mix and match the ingredients and most of the time, the end result is acceptable and not disappointing.  So, today I'm going to share with you a Banana Cocoa Chiffon Cake with some 'dots' of chocolate chips.  As usual, chiffon cakes are light, soft, moist and will readily be enjoyed with a hot cuppa.

5 'L'egg yolks
80 gm plain flour
1.1/4 Tbsp cornflour

25 gm choc chips

  6. Remove cake from oven, invert the cake immediately to cool completely before unmoulding by hand.

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try. 

Wife Biscuit (Lo Por Paeng) 老婆餅

Happy New Year, everyone!   My first post for 2015 is 'Wife Biscuit' aka 'Lo Por Paeng', a soft and flaky pastry with winter melon filling which is a very popular delicacy in Hong Kong.  The ones that I find here are not the same as their  flaky counterparts, instead they are crispy and thin.   I've been surfing the internet for a recipe and I was very happy when I stumbled upon a Youtube video from SiuKitchen .   The video is in Cantonese and she gives very detailed steps on how to make these flaky pastries.   The pastries were good and stayed flaky and soft for three days in an airtight container.  I needn't have to reheat them in the oven toaster.
