Strawberries Rhubarb Cake and First Year Blog Anniversary. Since there is no birthday without cake, being June, time for strawberries and rhubarb I made this mouthwatering cake, easy to make and cheerful
No cake would be more apt for MY celebration than yema cake. Yema cake was named after the sweet.

I finally made puto (steamed cake) and I nailed it. My previous two trials were both big disappointments and my third steamed rice cake experiment was better but I forgot to sift the batter before steaming that the resulting puto has gritty "uncooked" rice in it
I have always had these 'jinx' when it comes to baking sponge cakes. I don't really know why, though I've followed exactly what the recipe said, but still, it will end up either being heavy or 'very not a sponge cake should look like'
