Chocolate cupcakes with jam ~ 果酱巧克力蛋糕

 

This is a soft and moist chocolate cupcake which will augur well for breakfast or to enjoy at any time of the day.  I added jam inside the cake by poking a 'tunnel' into the cake and slowly scoop the jam in  to fill up the tunnel.  You can use any flavour of jam according to your preference but no matter what flavour or brand of jam you add in, the cake will taste real good!

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.

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.
