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.

Ingredients

(A)  5 large egg yolks
       1/2 cup avocado juice

(B)  5 large egg whites
       1/2 tsp cream of tartar

  4. Sift in the flour with the baking powder into the egg yolk mixture, mix till smooth.

  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.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
