Blueberry Chiffon Cake


I've finally managed to get a rather nicely baked blueberry chiffon cake to my satisfaction.  Previously I've tried to bake blueberry yoghourt chiffon with glace blueberries and more often than not the cake ended up with a dense streak at the bottom and didn't rise as much.  This time I used fresh blueberries and I was quite pleased with the result.  I wouldn't dare say that this is perfect  but as long as it's well received by family members, I'm happy!








I was thrilled when the cake rose up in all proportions, that is the cake didn't have a 'waist' or shrank at the sides when it was inverted.  Think I've deflated the egg whites a bit, otherwise it could have been more fluffy.

Ingredients
A)  4 egg yolks
      70 gm cornoil
      30 gm caster/vanilla sugar
     135 gm blueberry paste
     125 gm superfine flour
     1/2  tsp baking powder
B)  4 egg whites
     80 gm caster/vanilla sugar
C) 125 gm fresh blueberries
      50 ml water, cooked under low flame to soften  
      and blended into a paste.  Cool

Method
  1. Sift the flour with baking powder, set aside.
  2. Cream egg yolks, sugar and oil till creamy.  Add in the blueberry paste and mix till well combined.
  3. Fold in the sifted flour.  Mix well.
  4. In a clean bowl, beat the egg whites till foamy, add in the sugar, continue beating till stiff but not dry.
  5. Gently fold in the half the egg whites into the blueberry mixture.  Mix well.  Then pour the mixture into the remaining egg whites. Mix well, scrapping from the bottom and sides of the mixing bowl.
  6. Pour the mixture into an ungreased chiffon cake pan.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 degC for 40 mins.  Invert immediately onto a wire rack upon removing the cake from the oven.
  8. Cool completely before unmoulding the cake onto the wire rack.
Note :  An alternative is to just fold in the egg whites into the blueberry mixture in 2 batches, mixing well after each addition.

    Thanks so much for your encouraging comment. It does taste good but lack the aroma of glace blueberries.

    Thanks, but if I make this again, I'll ensure that the egg whites do not deflate.

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

Pandan Angku Kuih ~ 班兰叶龟糕

I've never thought of making Angku Kuih or Red Tortoise Cake simply because it's so readily available in my daily market place.  But there have been so many posts of this traditional kuih by my fellow food bloggers and  they look so cute and beautiful that I just cannot resist the temptation of not trying my hands at it.

I must admit that making this kuih can be rather tedious and the amount of work can really make your head spin.  But if you prepare the mung bean filling a day ahead, then it does help to lighten your work quite a fair bit.  For all the  effort, these Pandan Angku Kuih came out beautifully.  To see how the kuih will be like the next day, I kept some in a container at room temperature.  To my surprise the skin of the kuih stayed soft till late the next day.  I didn't have to steam them again.  All I can say is that my efforts paid off handsomely and I'm so pleased.  Now, I've no qualms  experimenting this Angku Kuih with different flavours :)

Country style steam chicken

This is one simple recipe of  steamed chicken dish which I'm sure many bloggers have blogged before.  Tasty yet easy and quick to prepare, this dish pairs very well with steamy hot white rice.
