Matcha Red Bean Chiffon Cake ~ 抹茶 红豆 戚风蛋糕

This matcha red bean chiffon cake has a slightly bitter taste of matcha, which perfectly complements the sweetness of the red beans.   The beans provide a touch of texture in an overall lightweight and soft cake.   I was a bit disappointed that all the beans sank to the bottom of the cake but their appearance on the top, once the cake is inverted, is surprisingly decorative - how about that, a self-embellishing cake!

Sweet potato flat noodles stir-fry ~ 炒红薯扁面条
