Green Tea Pound Cake

makes one 9x5 loaf or two mini loaves
recipe from Fountain of Life Green Tea Company

ingredients

2 cups bleached all-purpose four
2 tablespoons Matcha green tea
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 sticks soft unsalted butter
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
5 large eggs, separated
Pinch of salt

directions

1. Butter a 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan and line with buttered parchment or wax paper—cut to fit. Set a rack in the middle level of the oven and preheat to 325F. Combine the flour, green tea and baking powder and stir well to mix.
2. Cream butter and confectioners sugar in bowl of mixer with paddle attachment and beat for about 3 minutes or until light. Beat in the egg yolks one at a time, beating well after each addition and scraping bowl and beater occasionally with a rubber spatula. Remove the bowl from the mixer and fold in the flour mixture by hand, with a rubber spatula.
3. Pour the egg whites and salt into a clean, dry mixer bowl. Place on mixer with whisk attachment and whip whites on medium speed until white and opaque and just beginning to hold their shape. Increase speed slightly and continue whipping egg whites until they hold a soft peak.
4. Remove bowl from mixer and quickly scrape whites from bowl onto batter in other bowl. Use a large rubber spatula to fold the egg whites into the batter, folding just until no streaks of white remain.
5. Scrape the batter into prepared pans and smooth the top. Bake the cakes for about 45 minutes (35-40 minutes for mini loaf pans) or until it is well risen and a toothpick inserted in the center emerges dry. Cool the cakes in the pans on a rack for 10 minutes, then un-mold and cool it completely.

Homemade salads are the best!

I love melon pan for its crispy top and soft bread inside, and this was fabulous! Although usual melon pan has a checkered pattern on top, the lack of that here was made up with its subtle melon flavour (normal melon pan has no melon flavour, its name derived from the top of the bread looking like a melon’s skin). Yummy afternoon snack!

Thinking of adopting a dog. I want to give a puppy or an old dog a home. Cost wise there shouldnt be a problem for me. Space wise my house has a pretty big garden.

Some concerns:
I work mon to fri whole day and sometimes come home only at 10+ so wont be able to walk the dog till late. Either that or early in the morning.
Might not be able to shower enough love and spend enough time with the dog cause of my busy schedule. However my family is big so there’ll always be someone at home.

Hmm. Will need to think about this more and check with the family.
