Durian Chiffon Cake ~ 榴莲戚风蛋糕


I baked this Durian Chiffon Cake quite some time back, during the durian season where the King of Fruits as the durian is called, was in full swing.  If you like the taste and strong overpowering smell of the durian, then you'll enjoy this light, soft chiffon.  But on the other hand if you don't, then you better keep your distance for the smell does linger on for quite a while!




Durian Chiffon Cake  ~  榴莲戚风蛋糕
Ingredients 
(A)  5 egg yolks
       125 gm superfine flour, sifted
       15 gm caster sugar
       58 ml oil
       75 ml milk or more  )                
       75 gm durian puree  )   Blend to get 150 ml durian puree
     
(B)  5 egg whites
       65 gm caster sugar
       1/2 tsp cream of tartar

Method

  1. Whisk egg yolks with the sugar with a ball whisk till light and creamy.
  2. Discard the fibres from the durian pulp.  Blend with about 100 ml or more milk, then strain the mixture till you get 150 ml durian puree.  
  3. Add the oil, durian puree into the egg mixture, mix well.
  4. Add in the sifted flour.  Mix well.
  5. In a clean bowl, beat egg whites till foamy, then add in the cream of tartar.  Increase speed and beat till egg whites thicken, then gradually add in the sugar and beat till egg whites form peaks but not dry.
  6. Fold in meringue into the egg yolk mixture, in batches.  Mix till well incorporated.
  7. Pour batter into an ungreased 23 cm chiffon pan, tap it a few times from the work top to dispel any air bubbles.
  8. Bake in a preheated oven @ 170 deg.C for about 45 mins.   Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.   Immediately invert the cake onto a wire rack.  Let cool completely before unmoulding by hand.

Biscoff Butter Cake ~ 牛油蛋糕

The recipe for this Biscoff Butter Cake is similar to my earlier post of Marble Butter Cake, just that I added an extra ingredient which is, crushed Biscoff cookies.    Instead of mixing the crushed cookies into the batter, I just sprinkled them on top of the first layer of batter and then cover with the remaining batter.   This cake is soft and moist with good texture ..... definitely a recipe for keeps!

Salted egg yolk cookies ~ 咸蛋黄酥饼 ~ CNY 2016

Salted egg yolk recipes are getting very popular these days.  There are salted egg yolk with crabs, salted egg yolk with chicken, salted egg yolk with bittergourd and salted egg yolk bun, just to name a few.  Being the inquisitive me, I tried baking the salted egg yolk cookies just to taste what's it like.   It's quite difficult to describe the taste, it's neither totally sweet nor totally savoury, it's a blend of both which makes it unique, yet delicious.


I like the small bits of salted egg yolk in the dough.  I let the dough rest in the refrigerator for more than 2 hours and it was more pliable to handle.
