Black Sesame Pound Cake

Black Sesame Pound Cake-2

I’ve a small packet of 50g Black Sesame Powder that I bought from Hong Kong from my last trip. Have always try to visit baking supplies shop when I’m overseas to check out the interesting ingredients and gadgets that they may have. I do like Hong Kong baking supplies shop, there is a lot of ingredients they repack to smaller quantity which is great for a one-time bake.
