Thai Milk Tea Chiffon Cake ~ 泰国奶茶戚风蛋糕


I made this Thai milk tea chiffon using the recipe for my  Peppermint tea chiffon,  adjusted the tea and this time I omitted the tea leaves in the cake.  This chiffon is incredibly light and fluffy and the Thai milk tea flavour lingers on after each bite.  The tea is indeed very fragrant and the sweet aroma filled the air when the cake was baking in the oven!







Thai Milk Tea Chiffon Cake  ~  泰国奶茶戚风蛋糕   
Ingredients (A)
  • 10 gm Thai milk tea leaves
  • 200 gm plain flour, sifted twice
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 70 gm caster sugar
  • 100 ml canola oil
  • 150 ml Thai milk tea  (200 ml warm milk, steep in the Thai milk tea leaves for 10 mins. strain to get 150 ml)
(B)
  • 6 egg whites
  • 70 gm caster sugar
Method
  1. Prepare the milk tea and set aside.
  2. Sift the plain flour twice with baking powder and salt. 
  3. Beat the egg yolks with sugar till creamy, add in oil and continue beating till thoroughly mixed.
  4. Add in the strained milk tea, mix well.
  5. Add in the sifted flour, mix well, set aside.
  6. Beat the egg whites till frothy and gradually add in the sugar.  Continue beating till stiff peaks form.
  7. Fold in meringue in 3 batches and mix lightly till no white streaks form.
  8. Pour batter into an ungreased 23 cm chiffon pan.  Lightly tap the pan to prevent air bubbles.
  9. Bake in a preheated oven @ 170 deg.C for 55 to 60 mins. till golden brown.  Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.
  10. Immediately invert the cake and let cool completely before unmoulding the cake by hand.

    1. It's soft and fluffy, nice flavour of Thai milk tea which is quite difficult to describe unless you give it a try!

  2. 3 tsp baking powder for a 23-cm chiffon? Thought you didn't even need bp for chiffon.. I love the deep brown colour of this light chiffon!

    1. Certain chiffon cake recipes require baking powder, in this case it's the tea, heavy

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.
