200g Low Protein Flour
25g Green Tea Powder
63g Milk (fresh)

3. Stir well by hand.
4. Add sieved flour and baking powder into egg mixture.
ahh should look something like this
7. Bake in preheated oven at 180C until cooked. If you are using an over with adjustable top and bottom heat, use 150C for bottom heat and 170C for top. (roughly 40 min for chiffon and 25 min for swiss roll)
NOTE: To make swiss roll, lay grease proof paper into long baking tray. Sprinkle some read beans on the paper and pour the cake mixture over.

Should be left in fridge to cool before serving.......
Sigh, it's too expensive to invest in a heavy duty mixer.....when will I be able to afford one or be able to successfully bake a cake.
The downside of this course was that it was not a hands on, just demo.......
