Chinese New Year bakes

Happy Chinese New Year! For the celebration this year, I had decided not to make any cookies, which was a wise decision as my sisters had all made cookies so there were lots to enjoy. I just spent time baking some cakes to usher in the Year of the Tiger. Here are the pictures...
This lovely steamed chinese cake recipe can be found here. Texture is very compact, I would reduce the flour the next time I make this cake.
Blackcurrant whipped cream roll following Cathy's recipe. She used the freshest looking of strawberries which I have substituted with blackcurrant jam blended with whipped cream instead. Delicious!

This one is kiwi flavoured. This one was eaten as soon as it was ready. Hence, the need  to bake the blackcurrants roll to replace it:P

Orange Poppyseed Cupcakes

Lastly, butter/chocolate cake combo. Supposed to give it a marble cake effect but I did not swirl it enough.


  1. Blackcurrant jam and whipped cream would be a fantastic filling for the cake, Jeannie. I'm going to make it your way next time. And your orange poppyseed cupcakes looks wonderful.

  2. Happy New Year! What a great recipe to start a new year. :)
