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

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.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
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…

Steamed egg with minced pork ~ 猪肉蒸水蛋

This is a super comforting home-cooked dish which requires only a few ingredients.   An easy to go recipe, I added minced pork to give the dish more volume.   Kids as well as adults will love the silken smooth egg interspersed with bits of juicy meat.   Great to serve over hot rice!

Char Siew Pau ~ 蒸叉烧包

I have been itching to try out a Pau recipe and vaguely remember that I did make it once, long, long ago.  So I  got hold of my old file of recipes and finally managed to retrieve it.  I did it recently and must say that I'm satisfied with the result.  The texture of the Pau was soft and a bit chewy, wholesome and filling too.  Naturally, they didn't look so nice and round like the ones sold in the dim sum restaurants, but nonetheless I think homemade ones can be just as delectable as well.
