chowtimes.com Turns Two


Well … we’re a few days late but it’s better late than never. Chowtimes.com turned two a few days ago and just in the nick of time too … our little visits counter hit 200,000. For Suanne and I, it’s a milestone that we had been hoping to reach before the blog turns two.

Suanne and I actually drove around Richmond looking for a cake to celebrate at 8:45PM. We wanted to look for one of those fluffy fruity cakes from Chinese bakeries. We went to quite a few places — most bakeries were closed at the hour of the day. We eventually remembered that the Osaka Supermarket at the Yaohan Mall had a bakery.

We simply love fruit black forest cakes like these … lots of freshly cut colourful fruits on top. These cakes are very airy and fluffy. Does anyone know how these kind of cakes are made … especially how they are made so airy and light?

Not sure about you, but for us, we don’t feel guilty eating such fruity black forest cake. After all, fruits are healthy food. Agree.

  1. happy 2nd bday! To make fluffy cake… what i do is just let the machine do the work :p Just beat them a lonng time.. maybe 10 min ? The batter should rise a little after you beat it for so long too !

    My mom only did that before apparently theres more batter after u do that ? hahah

  5. Hi,

    I think the secret to making airy and fluffy cakes is to use cake flour and also to beat the egg whites and egg yolks separately. I have a recipe for Mamon (Philippino sponge cake) and it is quite good. If you like, I can provide you with a copy? Congratulations!
