I hope you all understand the recipe posted above as I do not
have time to rephrase it clearer. I had problem understanding
it cos I am not the one who went for the demo. Anyway I find
that their instructions are not very detailed, so for that only
time I went, I jot down alot of my own notes. Furthermore,
the chef in the demo class change the measurement during the
class at times.

Anyway, the one I made taste alright. I wish you all the best.
Got to get some sleep now.

Lemon Curd Cake

Oh, this close up reveals all the flaws.

This cake is made with a recipe from Phoon Huat. My mother
who went for the demo, brought back a tiny piece and my kids
like it, so requested for it.

The taste of the lemon curd is very refreshing, and nice. The
sponge cake base is still very soft, even thou my cake
collapsed and was dense at the bottom. It is suppose to be a
sponge base, lemon curd filling, sponge layer, lemon curd filling
cake, but I made this in the morning where I have to rush off
to somewhere after lunch, so it is very rush. Infact, I was
cooking the lemon filling and cooking my pasta lunch at the
same time. Anyway, my sponge cake base is too flat to be spilt
into two layers, so I just pour the filling on top.

I must say, the cake base is really very soft and light. I like
this cake very much, but the whip cream, the butter, the eggs
are all quite fattening.   Wondering will lemon offset the

Will update recipe later, too tired to type now.

Orea Yogurt Cake with Chocolate Crumbles

So, did the chocolate crumble scare u? Ya, those are suppose
to be chocolate crumble, but I am not sure did I do it correctly.
It is so difficult to rub butter into flour to make crumbs like
texture, and since it is so wet, so I just add flour and add flour
and add flour till I see sandy, crumb like texture. Then I just
bake as required by the recipe and sprinkle them onto the
yogurt filling top and the sides (cos I have alot of them).

This is a Oreo yogurt cake, made from following recipe in
Happy Homebaking's website. She has done hers so nicely
and I am tempted to make one since I have to use up my
yogurt (really sick of my chocolate marble cake). Usually I do
not have much problem with non bake cake, but this time I
find jelly like substance at the bottom of the filling. Anyway,
its edible, so I just ignore it for the time being.

Non bake cakes are always welcomed by my kids, so I had no
problem in finishing the cake.

反而去自找麻烦。 不过没法啦,得用完我的那一大罐 无糖yogurt,

这回上场的是Happy Homebaking 的 Oreo Yogurt Cake.
crumble (这就是我不自量力的地方)。结果就是以上的样子,

可不可告诉我,我是不自量力, 还是勇于尝试?不过,连续三次

A much better try now

My kids have been asking for Zebra cake. They told me,
"Mummy, practice make perfect" (erm, this is what I told my
boy on his music practice). However, I got to use up the yogurt
and to try Happy Homebaking's recipe which has different
metric of measurement (of the same recipe that I failed), so 
here I am, the low fat chocolate marble cake again.

 Sorry, I took a big bite.

Now did u see that this time is better? However, I think I can
still see traces of greenish colored parts randomly somewhere.
The cake still sank abit when cooling. *sigh* Must find out
what's wrong. Hubby commented that all my cakes sank.
Anyway, not that I am giving up, but I think I had enough
eating the same cake in such a short time thou it is really tasty.

The next time I bake this cake, I must remember to buy a
smaller tub of yogurt, or perhaps try a vanilla flavour one,
and to use a round baking pan then a loaf pan since the round
pan give a better result (or perhaps I am lucky this time).

没熟透, 不过我已烘了很久,蛋糕底部就快要焦了。我已吃腻了,
过些日子再尝试吧。 不过, 一定要记得用 Happy Homebaking
