Matcha Cutout Cookies (Soft and Tender) 抹茶印模曲奇(鬆化口感)

I made these soft and tender matcha cookies for my aunt in September. This is actually a variation of my Vanilla Bean Cutout Cookies. I add more sugar to balance out the bitter flavor from the matcha powder. These cookies are soft and tender because of the cake flour and icing sugar. Egg yolk will … Continue reading Matcha Cutout Cookies (Soft and Tender) 抹茶印模曲奇(鬆化口感)

Chocolate Sponge Cupcakes 朱古力海綿杯子蛋糕

Here is the cupcake version of my Chocolate Genoise (Dairy Free) that is made with milk. This is not the traditional way of making separated eggs method sponge cake.

Sugar-Free White Bean Paste 無糖白豆沙餡

The reduced sugar amount will make the bean paste dry and crumbly so oil is needed to make up for the moisture … Continue reading Sugar-Free White Bean Paste 無糖白豆沙餡

Another Chocolate cake lol. This chocolate butter cake is made with milk rather than sour cream or yogurt which was usually stated in my other chocolate butter cake recipes such as Chocolate Bundt Cake, Chocolate Sour Cream Bundt Cake or Chocolate Butter Cake. Since milk is a lot thinner than sour cream or yogurt, the … Continue reading Chocolate Bundt Cake 2 朱古力環形牛油蛋糕 2

Chocolate Genoise (Dairy Free) 朱古力海綿蛋糕(無奶製品)

I made this sponge cake as a base to make a cake for my friend’s birthday recently. The cake was free of dairy products but still tasted great.

Everything was fine when beating the whole eggs, but then … Continue reading Chocolate Genoise (Dairy Free) 朱古力海綿蛋糕(無奶製品)
