Chocolate Sponge Cake (Tang Mian Method) 燙麵法朱古力海綿蛋糕

The picture of a beautiful chocolate cotton cake my friend recently posted on Facebook has evoked my memory of my cooked dough cake from last year.

In 1950, the word "bundt" was trademarked by H. David Dalquist, the co-founder of Nordic Ware which was a Minnesota-based cookware manufacturing company. He developed the pan … Continue reading Banana Walnut Bundt Cake 香蕉核桃環形蛋糕
