Orange Passion fruit Chiffon cake ~ 橙子百香果戚风蛋糕



The shrivelled passion fruit may not be appealing to you at first sight but you will be blown off by its distinctive sweet smell.  Although the fruit tastes tart and gritty because of the seeds but the smell which is like perfume and its bright yellow colour compensate for its ugly appearance. This chiffon is soft, moist and refreshing not forgetting the strong sweeet aroma!

 Ingredients
(A)  6 egg yolks
       75 gm sugar
       85 ml blended passion fruit juice + 1.1/2 Tbsp seeds
       20 ml orange juice
       4 Tbsp canola oil

(B)
       6 egg yolks
       60 gm sugar
       1/4 tsp cream of tartar

  1. Add some water to the passion fruit pulp and blend, then strain to get 85 ml juice.  Keep some seeds.  Set aside.
  2. Combine egg yolks, sugar with a ball whisk.  Add in the oil, juices, seeds and zest, stir to mix thoroughly.
  3. Sift in the self-raising flour, mix well.
  4. In a clean bowl, beat egg whites, then sprinkle on the cream of tartar.   Continue to beat till foamy and gradually add in the sugar in batches.  Continue to beat till stiff peaks but not dry.
  5. Fold in the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture in batches, mix till thoroughly incorporated.
  6. Pour the mixture into an ungreased 23 cm chiffon cake pan.  Lightly drop the pan from the work top two to three times to dispel any air bubbles.

Cherry Loaf Cake ~ 樱桃蛋糕

I baked this old-fashioned Cherry Loaf using the Marble Butter cake recipe but adjusted the recipe as I only used three eggs instead of four to fit into the loaf pan.   I remember that when I was little, I was attracted by the red cherries as any other kid and would gingerly take them out and eat them first.    The cake was secondary.  This cake is soft and moist infused with the sweet glace cherries giving it a lovely combination of flavours.
