Blueberry Yogurt Oreo Chiffon Cake

Weeks ago, I received an email from The Yogurt Place asking if they can send me samples to try.    Arrangement was made and I received three different flavours (natural, blueberry and green tea).

Yogurt Place started in Singapore in 2007, specializing in Greek-Style and is the first in Singapore and in Asia to introduce Freshly Made Greek yogurt.  Their yogurt contains low fat, minimal sugar level and no preservatives, yet delightfully smooth and creamy.  There is quite a wide selection of flavours, click here to see all the available flavours.

You can visit them at the following outlets or click here for the official website to find out more.

  • Compass Point #B1-16A
  • Jurong Point #03-114/115
  • Toa Payoh HDB Hub (Basement 1 foodcourt)
  • The Arcade Level 1 (beside Raffles Place Mrt Station)
  • Downtown East (Opp wild wild wet)
  • NUS University Town Koufu Foodcourt

I think this is my first time using yogurt in chiffon cake, and there is simply no reason to say ‘No’ to yogurt since it’s healthier and most importantly it tasted as good.

Green Tea Mousse Chiffon Cake

3.8, Happy Birthday to Melvin!

Green Tea Chiffon Cake, a recipe from my favourite cookbook ‘Okashi Sweet Treats Made With Love’.  Recipe will be updated soon..need to rush out to send this cake to the birthday boy!

Updated 9th March 2012

Cake receivers said this cake was soft and delicious while green tea mousse was light and yummy.   It would be better that the cake was sliced into half and spread with a thin layer of green tea mousse on it.  I think they like the mousse, LOL. 成功!

Gula Melaka Chiffon Cake

My chiffon cake is by no means perfect yet, but I’m very happy with the look, this should be one of my best lately.  This reminded me of a dishearten moment when my chiffon resembled the hour-glass after two consecutive baking attempts.  I was unable to pinpoint to the possible hidcups during then, everything seemed to be in the correct order and nothing was amiss.  I blamed it on stress.

Finally my chiffon is standing tall and proud….finally my baking ego for chiffon cake is restored…:)
