Strawberry Chiffon Cake ~ 草莓戚风蛋糕


This strawberry chiffon cake is a light and airy cake which is packed with strawberry flavour.   I used our locally grown strawberries from the Cameron Highlands and the taste of this cake is natural and not overly sweet.  It is great on its own but you can serve it with more strawberries or a dollop of whipped cream if so desired.







Strawberry Chiffon Cake ~  草莓戚风蛋糕  (adapted from  'here'  with modification)

Ingredients

(A)  6 egg yolks
       20 gm caster sugar
       120 gm plain flour
       110 gm strawberry puree, strained
       60 ml canola oil
       20 ml milk
       2 to 3 drops of red food colouring
       1/2 tsp vanilla (optional)

(B)  6 egg whites
       80 gm caster sugar
       1/2 tsp cream of tartar OR 2 tsp lemon/lime juice

Method

  1. Puree the strawberries and strain it, set aside.
  2. With a ball whisk, whisk the egg yolks with the sugar, add in oil, milk, vanilla and strawberry puree, mix till well combined.
  3. Sift flour into the egg yolk mixture, mix evenly.   Add in 2 to 3 drops of red food colouring, mix till well combined.   Set aside.
  4. In a clean bowl, beat the egg whites till foamy, sprinkle in the cream of tartar.   Continue beating till soft peaks form, add in sugar in three batches, beat till shiny, glossy and stiff but not dry.
  5. Fold in 1/3 of meringue into the egg batter, mix well with  the ball whisk.   Gently fold in the remaining meringue, mix well, then change into a spatula.  Tap the bowl of mixture gently on the worktop, then pour the mixture into an ungreased 23 cm chiffon cake pan.  Tap the pan gently on the worktop to dispel any air pockets.
  6. Bake on a lower shelf of a preheated oven @ 170 deg.C for 55 to 60 mins.   Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.   Immediately invert the cake to cool completely before unmoulding by hand.

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.
