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

 

Sibu Kampua Mee 寺巫干盘面

Being a Malaysian, I am a bit(yes, a bit only) shy to say that I have never been to Sarawak. I give myself an excuse that it is too far away from my lovely hometown, Penang island. The air ticket is quite expensive to travel from here to there. But, I think that I am lucky enough to know a friend from Sarawak, which willing to share with us the recipe of their local famous food, Kampua mee ("Gam Mua" noodle (干盘面)). Kampua mee is from Sibu and it is Fuzhou (福州) food. My first impression about Kampua was it almost same as dry Wan Tan Mee (干云吞面), as the sauce is black in colour and it is dry mee. Well, look at the recipe and cooking method, let's compare the differences.

LycheeCheese_9First of all, I would like to take this opportunity to wish my nephew a Happy 1 Year Old Birthday.

This is the first birthday cake for him in his life. Bake by me!!! So proud of me... Smile

A simple Lychee Cheese Cake with my own creation and with symbol "1" representing his age.

 

This time I choose to use Australia brand cream cheese, it is cheaper (half the price) compare to Philadelphia brand cream cheese. Conclusion, I will use back Philadelphia for the next cheese cake as I prefer heavier taste cheese.Tongue out

Next, let's see how I assembled the "1" year old cake. Firstly, bake a square shape sponge cake. (recipe refer here). To make the number "1" shape, cut the square cake and arrange according to the diagram shows below. Cut horizontally into half to spread cream cheese and lychee. Arrange and decorate accordingly.

A "box" created by Camus, I found that it is a very good idea to make the box using alluminium foil and keep the cake fresh.
