Pandan Chiffon Cake Recipe

This is a long keep recipe that I baked few months ago. Baked it together with other chiffon cakes during my chiffon cake study. I get this recipe from Kitchen Tigress, I found her blog from youtube while I was searching for video on how to make chiffon cake.       Recipe 100g pandan leaves, use only soft and moist young leaves 70g freshly squeezed coconut milk, undiluted 180g egg whites ½tsp cream of tartar 50g sugar 60g egg yolks 50g sugar 60g corn oil ¼tsp salt 100g cake flour (sifted with baking powder) 1tsp baking powder Method 1. Blend pandan leaves with coconut milk and 1 tbsp water. Strain pandan leave and get green liquid. Set aside green liquid, which should weigh 95 g. 2. Add sugar into egg yolks, immediately whisk with hand whisk until pale and light. 3. Add in corn oil, mix well. 4. Add in green pandan coconut liquid, mix well. 5. Sift in flour, baking powder and salt, stir until well combined. 6. Whisk egg white with electrical hand mixer until big bubbles form, add in cream of tartar. 7. Continue whisk from medium to high speed until small bubbles form (egg white is white in colour now) . 8. Slowly add in sugar, continue whisk at high speed until soft peak formed. 9. Add 1/3 of meringue into egg yolk mixture, mix gently with hand whisk until well combined, you will get a light mixture. 10. Change hand whisk to spatula, fold in 1/2 of remaining meringue. GENTLY fold with egg yolks batter until 50% combined (you will still see white meringue now). 11. Add all remaining meringue and fold GENTLY with spatula again until well combined. I did in in this way: spatula cut mixture into center all the way to bottom bowl, scrap from bottom along bowl side toward you. Rotate bowl few degree and repeat this action until well combined. (your mixture should be very light and volumic now). 12. Pour batter into 18cm chiffon cake pan, level the surface. Bang mixing bowl against worktop 2-3 times to remove air bubbles. Run a chopstick round side of tin to remove more air bubbles. Level and smooth top. Bake in preheated oven at 160C at lowest rack with fan forced for 40-45 minutes.   13. Remove cake pan and invert pan immediately, cool completely before remove cake from pan. Result The cake should be evenly green but I saw some white spot, it was due to unbalance mix during step 11, meringue not mix properly with egg yolk batter. Compare with other recipe which I used 5 eggs, this recipe used only 4 eggs. It is shorter compare with 5 eggs chiffon cake on right (picture below). I prefer 5 eggs recipe. Left: 4 eggs recipe; Right: 5 eggs recipe

Curry Chicken Recipe | With Instant Curry Chicken Paste

This is the first time I cooked curry chicken in my life, I cooked it with instant "A1 curry chicken paste". The first experience with successful and delicious curry chicken, I am very confident to cook for second time in future. With this instant curry chicken paste, you do not need to get headache with quantity of chilli, onion, garlic, and curry powder. With simple instruction shown behind the packing, what you need are 1kg of chicken (or beef or lamb), 200ml of water and 120ml of coconut milk. I cooked with 8 chicken wings and 3 potatos. Besides, I added 5 chopped shallots (small onion) for better taste. Firstly, pour in the instant curry paste and stir for few minutes, add in chicken wings, follow by potatos. Stir evenly for another few minutes, pour in water and let them boil. When the chickens are well cooked and potatos are soft, add in coconut milk. Stir evenly and you can have a pot of very delicious curry chicken in front of you.

PgHill_6This is the first time we went to Penang Hill after visited there since years ago. In my mind, Bukit Bendera is a cool place, where you can go away from super hot Penang island. Also, being prepared that there is "nothing" at the top hill. With this mindset, I prepared a jacket, pizza and some light foods for the trip.


We went in early morning on last Sunday morning, arrived there at about 8.15am. After park our car at their carpark (RM3 per entry), we went to buy ticket. Ticket charge for adult is RM8 per person, if you show your Malaysia identity card to them (child is RM4). By the time we buy the ticket, there is no body in the queue, so we thought the visitor must be very few.

After that, we went to ride on the train, the train straight arrived at the top hill. Thinking back the old train, visitors need to walk out to change train on half way. The train speed is faster compare to old train too.

When we arrived at top hill, we planned to have breakfast at David Brown's restaurant. But they do not get ready on set meal yet, with only cakes and light foods available. The waitress told us there is a food court, so we had our breakfast there.

Surprisingly, food court was quite crowded, many cyclist had their breakfast there. The food is at average price, which we think are quite reasonable at tourism place.

We ordered a plate of Char Koay Teow (RM5) and a plate of Mee Kung Fu (RM6). Food taste is quite good. A cup of coffee (RM2) and Fresh Cocoa juice (RM6). Other foods are Laksa, Nasi Lemak, Fried Rice, Koay Tiao Soup, Bakery, Satay and many more. For drink, they have different kind of fresh juice, Ice Kacang, Fruit Ice and etc.

After breakfast, we walked around the place, and return home before 12pm. There is nothing much at the top hill but compare with N years ago, many things are actually get improved such as food court, cleanliness of the place, train, toilet and of course, number of visitors have increase greatly.

At the end, we took back home our pizza. I also do not wear on my jacket at all as the weather is not cold, just a little cooling.

We ride on "roller coaster" from top hill to bottom hill and end our half day trip. (There is a group of people shouting like riding on roller coaster on our way back, the train speed is quite fast and imagine you are standing at the front part of the train, "roll" down at fast speed.)

The visitors were geting more and more crowded by the time we returned home. So, go early to avoid long queue!
