Recently, I have been quite obsessed with teas. I wonder, “Why not bake with it?”. Which, resulted in this wonderful chiffon cake recipe.

I know the combination of Jasmine Green Tea and Cheese sounds weird. But, the Cheese actually complements quite well with the flavor of the leaves.

Jasmine Green Tea drink is a common choice for Singaporean. Though we don’t really put cheese on our baked goods, I got my inspiration from Indonesia. Indonesians love to sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese onto their cakes. I was intrigued to try it out and when I got to try it, it was lovely.

To extract all the flavors out from the tea leaves, I infused the leaves with melted butter. I find that this will yield you a stronger aroma. I also make sure to soak the chiffon cake with brewed sweetened tea. This would make sure that the cake will not dry out when chilling it in the fridge and also at the same time enhancing the flavour of the mild Jasmine Green Tea.

I chose JORD CONWAY series is because I feel that the white balance well with the wood, at the same time making sure that it is suitable for any occasion, even when baking! #JORDWATCH #OOTD

Afterward, I followed the instruction manual and added in the activated charcoal before adding the soil into the jar. Honestly, without the DIY Kit, I would have no idea how to assemble or even source for those ingredients. I am glad that Masons Home Decor provide such DIY Kit Box to allow people like me to enjoy terrarium making.

Time to add some soil! The good thing about the kit is that they have provided you with their soil blend that will help your plants to last. All you need to do is to add into the glass jar. Since you will only be needing that little amount of soil, it will be very convenient for you as you also do not need to source your own soil from the nursery which often only sold in large packs.

Perfect Fluffy Pancakes

Pancakes

Delightful light and fluffy Pancakes. So perfect!

Pancakes

This recipe is a little unconventional. I separated egg yolk and egg white and whisked the egg white with sugar until stiff peaks. This actually helps the pancakes to be light and fluffy.Pancakes

Picture perfect. I actually like to go with a slab of Butter,  drizzle of Maple Syrup, some Berries and a dollop of Greek Yogurt. But, in this case, I did not use any Greek Yogurt for photoshoot wise.

Pancakes for you
