Baked Egg Cake ~ 烤鸡蛋糕


The recipe for this soft and light Baked Egg Cake is derived from the original recipe for steamed egg cake or Ji Dan Gao  (糕). I like the texture of this cake which is not too sweet and it does pair very well with a hot cup of our local black coffee.

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 whole egg
  • 50 ml canola oil

  2. Sieve in self-raising flour, mix well and set aside.
  3. In another clean mixing bowl, whisk egg whites till foamy, add in icing sugar in three batches and whisk till stiff peaks but not dry.
  4. Fold in 1/3 meringue into the flour mixture with a spatula, mix well.  Fold in the remaining meringue, mix thoroughly.
  5. Take out 2 tablespoon batter and mix with the cocoa mixture.
  6. Scoop some plain batter into a lined 8.1/2 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan alternating with the cocoa batter.  Use a skewer to make a swirl pattern.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven @ 170 deg.C for 35 mins.  Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.
  8. Overturn the pan onto a wire rack to let the cake cool completely.   
Note :  The cake will shrink a little as with most sponge cakes.  Trim off the sides before slicing to serve.

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.

Curry Chicken Puff ~ 咖哩鸡角

This is a 'cheat' version of curry puffs.  Why do I say 'cheat'?  Because the puff pastries were store bought.  It's very much easier to make these curry puffs snack with instant pastry for if I were to make the pastries from scratch it's going to be very tedious.  Also, shaping and baking them in a muffin pan is less time consuming.  Enjoy!
