Few weeks ago, when my good friend Joyce posted her bake of this magic custard cake in her facebook, I was curious and wonder why it is called a magic cake. She explained to me that three different layers were formed when the cake is baked. I thought, "Wow, what an interesting recipe, I gotta try it!"

Baking Taitai's Hokkaido Milk Matcha loaf with Azuki Paste fillings (Breadmaker recipe) 烘培太太的北海道牛奶抹茶小麵包加红豆馅 (面包机食谱）
Those who follow me on Facebook would have seen me posting matcha bakes for the past week in my facebook page. Tis the season of Matcha for me as I have got a big pack of Matcha powder (bought in Japan recently) in my fridge.

I have never baked a chiffon cake in a tube pan before. (other than the Hokkaido chiffon cupcakes) I was told that the failure rate of baking a chiffon cake is rather high so I was a little nervous but delighted that it turned out alright on my first attempt. :)
A chiffon cake is a very light cake made using vegetable oil instead of butter and it is so versatile that you can come up with many variations of it.

Baking Taitai's Hokkaido Milk Buns with Cream Cheese & Dried Cranberries fillings (Breadmaker recipe) 烘培太太的北海道牛奶小麵包加奶油乳酪与蔓越莓干 (面包机食谱）
My breadmaker is my current favourite 'toy'. There is definitely no regret buying it as it has served my family well and we are enjoying homemade bread with my various creations using my basic loaf recipe here. I wanted the breadmaker to do more than just baking loaf bread so I did an experiment recently and baked buns in it. I was not disappointed, the buns turned out to be soft and fluffy!
