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.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

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…
