Healthy Beancurd (Tofu) Cake with Black Sesame 芝麻豆腐蛋糕

This beancurd (Tofu) Cake recipe has been left in my folder for quite a while.  It has been weeks of postponing until blogger Zoe's monthly cooking event theme appears. The theme for the month of October 2013 was anything about soya beans.  Befitting the theme, finally I have the chance to try this interesting and healthy recipe cake.  This recipe is sure a hit among the health conscious freak.    

 I am not as pretty as Snow White but I am very very tasty!  ^_^

I am happy that there is no crack on the cake.   Yippie!!
