Banana Yogurt Streusel Muffins​ ​香蕉优格​沙波罗马芬​ (中英食谱教程)

I have enjoyed hosting the 'Little Thumbs Up' Yogurt event this month and it is coming to an end in two days time.  I am happy to have made some new blogger friends during this event and I want to thank all my blogger friends who have supported me by sharing their wonderful yogurt recipes. Please pardon me if I have not visited your linked blog posts due to a super busy schedule.  

Here's sharing the Banana Yogurt Streusel Muffins which will be my last yogurt post for this event and I do highly recommend it to you. With the addition of irresistible streusel on the banana muffins, it is exceptionally delicious, you really gotta try it!

Ogura Colour De Quad 四色相思蛋糕 (中英食谱教程)

This is my first attempt making an ogura cake and I was bold enough to try it out in four colours. As usual using only natural colourings as I dislike using artificial colourings made of chemicals. I wanted a pretty looking cake as I was making it for my grandmother's 92nd birthday. 


Not long ago, I made my Yoga Cotton Cake for granny and she loves it much. This time, I decided to try out the Ogura cake which is also known for it's soft and moist texture. I have named it Ogura Coleur De Quad, a French name which means Orgura with four colours. The four colours batter were poured into the baking mould one after another and baked at the same time. I was really curious how the colours will turn out after baked and was pleasantly pleased and surprised with the nice pattern formation! My granny even gave a thumbs up for the cake! 

不久前,做了瑜伽棉花蛋糕嬤吃,她特别喜欢。这次想尝试这款也有着柔软湿润质感的相思蛋糕给她试,希望她也一样喜欢。 我把蛋糕的四色面糊一层接一层倒入烤模一起烤,蛮好奇烤出来的图案会是怎样的。蛋糕出炉后,我非常满意形成的图案,是不是很漂亮?吃了蛋糕之后还竖起拇指说好呢!

I want to thank my dear hubby here as after hearing how I wished I can have a Blue Pea plant at home so that I can extract natural blue colourings for my bakes, he immediately searched on the internet and bought the plant for me. Here's one flower which bloom yesterday morning after I have plucked out all to make this cake. Isn't it pretty? Looking at it lifts up my mood! :)

Chocolate Marble Pound Cake 巧克力大理石磅蛋糕 (中英食谱教程)

I was a huge fan of Sara Lee pound cakes before I picked up baking 4 years ago. I have tried baking several pound cake recipes like the Blueberry Whipping Cream pound cake, Cream Cheese pound cake and Orange Yogurt pound cake and thus far this Chocolate Marble pound cake gives the best taste! With the addition of yogurt, the texture is moist and not greasy too. Thanks to my dear friend, Lois, who highly recommended this recipe to me. My hubby gave a big thumbs up when he ate it and I am so pleased! You see, he is rather critical and not one who praises easily, if he says good, it must be so...LOL!!!   

四年前,还没开始玩烘焙时,就好喜欢买‘沙莉雪藏蛋糕’。试过好几款磅蛋糕如‘ 蓝梅鲜奶油磅蛋糕’,‘奶油奶酪磅蛋糕’和‘ 柳橙优格磅蛋糕’,还是这‘巧克力大理石磅蛋糕’最好吃!因为加了优格,蛋糕的质感又湿润又细腻,而且吃起来也没那么油腻。 真的感谢好友Lois强力推荐她收藏多年的食谱,我才能够吃到这么好吃的磅蛋糕。老公吃了也竖起拇指说好。哇,这下我可high了,因为他不轻易给于赞美的喔!所以他说好就是好。。哈哈!

Quick & Easy Double Chocolate Yogurt Muffins 简易双巧克力优格玛芬 (中英食谱教程)

I have been using this quick and easy muffin recipe all these while especially when I am super busy and do not have much time to bake. This recipe is really a life saver to me as all in all it takes only 30 minutes to churn out a batch of delicious and moist muffins. In this recipe, I only used one single baking tool - the Tovolo dough whisk, to do the job. Yay, less washing to do...especially if you are like me who do not have the luxury of having a helper at home to do all the washing. 


For those who are new to the dough whisk, it is also known as the Danish Dough Whisk or Brotpisker in Danish. It is an essential tool for all bakers as it can do chores like mixing muffin batter, mixing heavy dough prior to kneading and other batters which you don't want to beat for fear of toughening your bakes. This specialized baking tool is also easier to wash compared to a hand whisk. 

You may click on the following links to check out my youtube videos how this tool was used:

Non-bake Blackcurrant Yogurt Cheesecake & Cupcakes 免烤黑加仑优格乳酪蛋糕 (中英食谱教程)

This month I will be sharing mainly cakes and desserts using yogurt as one of the ingredients as I am hosting the Little Thumbs Up baking/cooking event (Yogurt theme) organized by Zoe and Doreen. I would like to start off by sharing this non-bake blackcurrant yogurt cheesecake which my family loves. I have used the following recipe to make one 5 inch round cake and 12 mini cupcakes. The 5 inch round cake was made for my dear granny's helper's birthday and the 12 mini cupcakes were made for our visiting guests from Australia. With the same amount of ingredients, you can also make one 9 inch round cake. This is a light and refreshing cheesecake which you will not hesitate to go for a second helping!  

这个月因为主持“小拇指说好 -优格之旅 ”活动, 我将会经常与大家分享用优格食材的食谱。首先就让我推荐这免烤黑加仑优格乳酪蛋糕 ,吃起来不仅清爽又美味,值得一试!
