Gula Melaka/Palm Sugar Chiffon Cake ~ 椰糖戚风蛋糕


This Gula Melaka or Palm Sugar Chiffon  Cake is very aromatic and it does taste a bit like butterscotch but this is more rich.   It is soft and fluffy and in this recipe, I used coconut powder dissolved in water instead of coconut milk and the result is not disappointing at all!





Gula Melaka/Palm Sugar Chiffon Cake ~  椰糖戚风蛋糕  (adapted from 'here')
Ingredients (A)

  •  6 egg yolks 
  • 150 gm gula melaka
  • 100 ml coconut milk (I used 20 gm coconut powder + 100 ml water)
  • 4 Tbsp canola oil
  • 140 gm plain or superfine flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Pandan/Screwpine leaves
(B) 

  • 6 egg whites
  • 30 gm caster
  • sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon juice OR 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
Method
  1. In a saucepan, melt coconut milk with gula melaka and pandan leaves.  Set aside to cool.
  2. Sift plain flour, baking powder and salt, set aside.
  3. Beat egg yolks in a ball whisk, add in canola oil and whisk till well combined.  Add gula melaka mixture into egg yolk mixture, mix well.
  4. Whisk in the flour mixture till well combined.
  5. Beat egg whites till frothy, add in the lemon juice, beat till soft peaks, add in sugar gradually and beat till stiff but not dry.
  6. Add meringue into the egg yolk mixture in three batches and fold in till well incorporated.
  7. Pour the mixture into an ungreased 23 cm chiffon cake pan, 
  8. Drop the pan about 6 inches from the tabletop to release any air bubbles, repeat.
  9. Bake in a preheated oven @ 170 deg.C for 55 to 60 mins.   Immediately invert the cake once it's removed from the oven and let cool completely before unmoulding by hand.

Pumpkin almond crisps ~ CNY 2018 ~ 南瓜杏仁片脆饼

Chinese New Year is not too far away from now, in 2018, it falls on 16th February and we usher in the year of the Dog.  This is a very addictive crispy snack and it's different from my previous post of
Orange Sesame Almond Crisps for I used almond walnut powder instead of almond meal.  It tastes just as good.

Curry leaf Salted Egg Cookies ~ 咖喱叶咸蛋曲奇 ~ CNY 2017

I was quite sceptical to try this Salted Egg cookie recipe with an addition of curry leaves but I was surprisingly pleased with the end product.   It is indeed difficult to describe the taste of these cookies except that they do have an appetising flavour.  But one thing for sure, the sweet smell of salted egg and curry leaves will linger in your kitchen for quite a while.  Check it out here for a simple and easy Salted Egg cookie recipe.

German Butter Cookies CNY 2015 ~ 德国牛油曲奇

These cookies certainly do not need much introduction as they have been circulating among food blogs for quite some time, more so at this time of the year.   I've bookmarked this since last year and only had the time to make them now.  I made some plain ones as well as marbled ones. There are other flavours as well but for the time being, I can only make do with these.  Also this will be my last post before I take a break to celebrate the Lunar Chinese New Year with my family, relatives and friends.
