I just bought a cookbook via online. I saw a lot of good review of "Okashi-sweet treats made with love" among bloggers and also a book that Jane thought to order for me, Thanks Jane. The 1st recipe i tried from this book is a green tea chiffon because we love green tea flavour.
Thought i need to increase temp to 170c instead of 160c as i found the sides of the chiffon was a bit undercooked.
And i changed the cream from green tea to red bean because I believe red bean and green tea are best to combine together...
I made the right choice, this chiffon is very soft and moist..and a perfect combination of green tea and red bean.
