Avocado Chiffon Cake ~ 鳄梨戚風蛋糕


This is a soft, moist and fluffy chiffon cake with a slight hint of creamy avocado.   No oil is used in this recipe as the avocado is already creamy by itself.  Great to serve with a hot cup of coffee or tea for breakfast or just to snack on.









Avocado Chiffon Cake  ~   鳄梨戚風蛋糕    

Ingredients

(A)  5 large egg yolks
       1/2 cup avocado juice
       128 gm plain flour
       2 tsp  baking powder

(B)  5 large egg whites
       1/2 tsp cream of tartar
       75 gm caster sugar

  3. Add in the strained avocado juice into the egg yolks, mix well with a ball whisk.
  4. Sift in the flour with the baking powder into the egg yolk mixture, mix till smooth.
  5. Sprinkle the cream of tartar into the egg whites, beat on low till foamy.  Add in the sugar in three batches and beat till soft peaks form, but not dry.
  6. Add in 1/3 meringue into the egg mixture, fold in with a ball whisk, continue with the remaining meringue and mix thoroughly.
  7. Lightly tap the bowl on the work top to dispel any air pockets.  
  8. Pour the batter into an ungreased 23 cm chiffon cake pan, level the surface and lightly tap the pan again.

  2. Hi just curious. I've noticed it's only 75 grams of sugar on the recipe. Does the avocado also add some sweetness? I would like to try making this recipe. Thanks xx Hetty.

    1. For chiffon cakes, the sugar content is not as much as for plain cakes. The avocado does not add sweetness to the cake but you can get a bit of creamy taste in the cake.

Turmeric chicken (2) ~ 黄 姜 鸡

A lot has been said about the nutrients and health benefits of adding turmeric to our diet.  Not only is turmeric a good source of manganese and iron, it also helps to lower blood triglycerides after a meal.  Moreover it helps to add more colour to a dish as you can see from this Turmeric Chicken dish which I'm sharing with you today.

Curry Chicken Puff ~ 咖哩鸡角

This is a 'cheat' version of curry puffs.  Why do I say 'cheat'?  Because the puff pastries were store bought.  It's very much easier to make these curry puffs snack with instant pastry for if I were to make the pastries from scratch it's going to be very tedious.  Also, shaping and baking them in a muffin pan is less time consuming.  Enjoy!
