This fluffy cake is made with all-purpose flour and purple yam. Since we found purple yam in local Asian stores, it has quickly become one my family’s favorite foods. We love its sweet taste and beautiful color.

    不过, 结果很奇怪: 混合后的紫薯的颜色是绿的, 面粉的颜色是棕色的 不知道什麽问题,可否食用? 面团很稀, 发起来体积不大, 蒸熟后的孔挺大, 好像发得可以,但是弹性不好。
    我用的是Unbleached All Purpose Flour, 有效期到2014, 其它料都是普通的。这应该不会有问题吧? 不知道你遇到过这种情况吗?
