I love munching dried cherry tomatoes as they are sweet and a little sourish to my liking. Something popped into my mind while I was munching half way ~~ why not add this little tomatoes into my bakes? So I quickly flipped through some of my cookbooks and I saw this recipe from a Chinese cookbook 经典100 using yuzu paste and orange cointreau as the main ingredients ~~ mmmm... this must be good to go with my dried cherry tomatoes! Without second thoughts, I baked this Dried Cherry Tomato and Yuzu Cake yesterday with slight modification. I'm very pleased with the result, the cake was soft and the combination of flavours, perfect, love it to bits. Definitely a keeper cake that can be baked as a gift for Chinese New Year.
