Chocolate Chiffon Cake

This is a very light version of chiffon cake with minimum sugar, using olive oil instead. The texture is light, soft and fluff. I have made this cake for many times. Recently I made one for my church friends.

To highlight this humble, soft cake, I decorated it with whipped cream, dressed a bit of chocolate sauce on top. The fresh strawberries really popped up and contributed a fresh taste and feel.

Stewed Pork Ribs in Orange Juice (橙汁肉排)

by · 34 comments
This stewed pork ribs in orange Juice dish is my family's all-time favourite. The pork rib meat nearly fell off the bones after being stewed in the orange juice for two hours, absorbed all the flavours of the sauce. It goes perfectly with a bowl of steamed rice.

That said, the cold weather would help oranges grow juicier and sweeter. If it’s right, no wonder I can find many large and super sweet navel oranges at supermarkets in recent cold days.

I bought a large packet of them as my snacks a few days ago. They were really juicy and meaty. I just used two of them to squeeze out one whole cup of juice to cook this stewed pork ribs dish.
