Kahlua Chiffon Cake 咖啡酒戚風蛋糕

I am not a drinker and usually use alcohol only for cooking and baking. A splash of Kahlua liqueur definitely adds an unique flavor profile to any cake, and this chiffon cake is one of the liqueur-infused cakes that I (as well as other coffee lovers) would enjoy. This recipe is written specifically for the … Continue reading Kahlua Chiffon Cake 咖啡酒戚風蛋糕

Osmanthus Chiffon Cake 桂花戚風蛋糕

Osmanthus flower has a light and refreshing aroma that is reminiscent of sweet apricots. The flowers are often added to dessert and tea to enhance flavor. My childhood acquaintance with Osmanthus came from the Chinese legend about Mid Autumn Festival in which Wu Gang, a woodcutter, was made to chop down a magical, self healing … Continue reading Osmanthus Chiffon Cake 桂花戚風蛋糕

Black Sesame Coconut Chiffon Cake 椰香黑芝麻戚風蛋糕

I made this chiffon cake as my afternoon snack last week. The cake had a light black sesame scent and was not overly sweet. I’ve made black sesame chiffon cake several times before by tweaking the recipe of Vanilla Chiffon Cake. The vanilla bean paste was omitted from the recipe and a quarter of the … Continue reading Black Sesame Coconut Chiffon Cake 椰香黑芝麻戚風蛋糕

Mango Mousse Cake with Mirror Glaze 芒果慕絲鏡面蛋糕

Here is another mirror glazed cake I made for my mom’s birthday. The mango mousse recipe was taken from Mango Gâteaux. I paired it up with Vanilla Chiffon Cake as well as a mirror glaze that contained mango puree and white chocolate. The addition of white chocolate turned the glaze into a creamy yellowish color so … Continue reading Mango Mousse Cake with Mirror Glaze 芒果慕絲鏡面蛋糕

Banana Walnut Bundt Cake 香蕉核桃環形蛋糕

I developed this recipe solely to test my new Nordic Ware bundt pan. It was a not-so-sweet, moist and slightly dense ring-shaped cake baked in a bundt pan. 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

Mango Gâteaux (Mango Mousse with Green Tea Cake) 芒果綠茶慕絲蛋糕

My younger son just turned four on Monday and this was what I made for him. He is a huge fan of Thomas & Friends and has been asking for a Thomas themed birthday cake and guess what? I simply took his toy train and one of his train tracks to decorate his birthday cake. … Continue reading Mango Gâteaux (Mango Mousse with Green Tea Cake) 芒果綠茶慕絲蛋糕

Yellow Butter Cake 牛油蛋糕

This was my other yellow cake recipe which was adapted from the famed baker Rose Levy Beranbaum. I have reduced the sugar amount by 40%. And in order to compensate for the moisture lost due to the reduction of sugar, I replaced some butter with oil. 這是EC最近嘗試的另一個yellow cake,配方改良自著名烘焙專家Rose Levy Beranbaum的yellow cake。EC把糖量減了四成,而為了彌補大量減糖而做成的蛋糕變乾問題,EC將部份牛油以葡萄籽油取代。 Compare with my previous … Continue reading Yellow Butter Cake 牛油蛋糕

Green Tea and White Chocolate Mousse Cake with Red Bean Filling 綠茶白朱古力慕絲蛋糕(紅豆餡)

I made this mousse cake for my friend’s dad last week. This green tea mousse is the only mousse cake that contains raw egg yolks. The yolks make the green tea mousse richer in taste. For the sake of health, I always heat the yolk mixture to the egg safe temperature. I have made another … Continue reading Green Tea and White Chocolate Mousse Cake with Red Bean Filling 綠茶白朱古力慕絲蛋糕(紅豆餡)
