In addition, I was playing around improvising chiffon cake recipes and came up with Green Tea Chiffon Cake with Wolfberries ('kei chi' in Chinese). Sounds healthy, eh? I like!

Thanks, boo. And it's a nice combi too.

Precious Pea,
Yeah, it does sound healthy. I supposed it is as healthy as it can get, dessert wise.

Hi Daphne,

I tried the Banana Yogurt Cake recipe on the weekend, and it turned out D-licious!! The bread (commonly called banana bread in USA)was moist and light. The bread was not dense like store bought ones. Love it.

Can you post the recipe for the Green Tea Chiffon Cake? Thanks!

The result I had with the Banana Yogurt Cake recipe is really tasty. The banana bread turned out moist and not too sweet. I shared the bread with friends who were blown away and asked for the recipe. This is definitely a keeper.
