Cranberry Yoghurt Chiffon Cake

I baked this recently for my sister's birthday and it was a hit with her and her friends, which earned me a trip to the Cameron Highlands with them, as well. I blended in with their company and it was one of her friends, a blogger, who has a blog on gardens and plants who inspired, encouraged and helped me tremendously in creating this blog, and I've not looked back since. Thanks Jacqueline!




Light, chiffon cake that's not heavy, can certainly do with more helpings, especially with a cup of hot tea or coffee.....








Recipe for Cranberry Yoghurt Chiffon Cake

Ingredients : A
  • 4.1/2 Egg Yolks
  • 40 gm Caster sugar
  • 60 ml Cannola Oil
  • 1.1/2 Teasp. Lemon/Lime juice
  • 120 gm plain Yoghurt
  • 135 gm Superfine Flour
  • 90 gm dried Cranberries - cut & coated with some flour
Ingredients : B
  • 6 Egg Whites
  • 70 gm Caster sugar
  • 3/8 Teasp. Cream of Tartar
Method :
1. Cream the egg yolks and sugar till light, creamy and thick.
2. Add in the oil, lemon juice and yoghurt, mix till well blended.
3. Sift in the flour and mix till the batter is lump free.
4. Beat the egg whites till big bubbles form. Add in the cream of tartar and beat till white in colour.
Add in the 70 gm sugar, and beat till stiff peaks form, not dry.
5. Pour 1/2 egg whites into the flour mixture (3) above and blend well, with a hand whisk.
6. Pour flour mixture into the rest of the egg whites and fold till just blended, with hand whisk. Stir in the cut, flour-coated cranberries, till just combined.
7. Pour batter into ungreased chiffon pan. Tap the tin a bit to expel the air from the batter.
8. Bake in preheated oven @ 350 deg.F/180 deg.C for about 45 minutes. Test with skewer till it comes out clean.
9. Invert the pan immediately to cool.

Note :
The little amount of flour used to coat the cranberries, is not from the above 135 gm.

Marble Castella Cake ~ 长崎蛋糕

What's for tea?  A soft, light and non-greasy Marble Castella ~  Kasutera cake.  I didn't line the pan with foil this time, only with parchment paper and was very pleased that the bottom of the cake didn't stick onto the paper and yielded a perfect brown base.  Indeed a delicious cake to be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Chinese Pumpkin Pancake ~ 金瓜饼

This pumpkin pancake is soft and delicate and not too sweet as the sweetness is only from the red bean paste filling.   For a crispy pancake you can deep-fry them but I chose to just shallow pan-fry them in a non-stick pan.   This is great to serve as a tea-time snack over a cup of brimming hot Chinese tea.
