Chocolate Mousse Cake with Chocolate Crust 朱古力慕絲凍餅

I received feedback from several readers not long ago. They said they all love how decadent my Chocolate Mousse Cake was.

It … Continue reading Chocolate Mousse Cake with Chocolate Crust 朱古力慕絲凍餅

Black Sesame Chiffon Cake 黑芝麻戚風蛋糕

Here comes my first cake of the year 2018! I have upgraded to an induction stove recently so I got a bigger and fancier 164L (5.8 cu. ft.) convection oven to play with (yay!!!).

Each cavity had a capacity of 60 ml so … Continue reading Maple Orange Madeleines 楓糖香橙瑪德蓮

Not everyone enjoys the mushy and squishy texture of overripe bananas but they are perfect for baked goods such as chiffon cake, banana bread, banana mousse and muffins. Together with some leftover sour … Continue reading Banana Bundt Cake with Chia Seeds 香蕉奇異籽環形蛋糕

Pumpkin and Chocolate Marbled Bundt Cake 南瓜朱古力大理石蛋糕

What is in season in September and October? Pumpkins! Pumpkin patches can be found in the farms and we just visited one in mid-October. My kids enjoyed seeing farm animals and watching shows.
