I made a batch of green tea, orange butter cake recently. The kids prefer cakes in individual casings and hence, I bought these paper cups which can stand alone without another aluminium casings for baking. Each casing costs almost 30 cents so it is not very ideal for large amount of baking.
I used the recipe in my other posting and added the juice of one orange and the grated skin (the orange part only) of two oranges. On top of that, I added in two heaped teaspoons of green tea powder. I bought the green tea powder from the baking specialist shop. It is rather costly, at RM6.80 for a little container.
I was expecting a green coloured cake but it turned out to be tea coloured. The above photo is the cake using only oranges. The one with the tea coloured did not look too appetising on photos. 🙂
Anyway, the cake smells really heavenly and taste good. I will probably add more green tea in future recipe.
I have revived the PenangFaces blog and recently, moved server. Hopefully, I can find time to post some non-halal recipes over at the PenangFaces blog.
