Mini lime marmalade chiffon cake




These little chiffon cupcakes were made with lime marmalade.  Other than orange marmalade I've never come across lime marmalade and so this went into my shopping basket when I was in Perth last.  It's slightly more sour than orange marmalade but it's delicious when you have it with butter or peanut butter slathered on a slice of freshly baked bread or toast!













I made this based on my recipe of Black currant chiffon cake but this time used lime marmalade, plain flour and baked in paper cups for a change.

I'll be off-line for a while as I'll be away on a short vacation but once I'm back on homeground I'll be posting again.  So, take care, folks!

Recipe for Mini lime marmalade chiffon cake

Ingredients


    A.  5 egg yolks
         1/4 tsp salt
         30 gm caster sugar
         6.1/4  tsp corn/canola oil

    B.  100 gm lime marmalade
         5  Tbsp boiling water

    C.  150 gm plain flour

    D.  5 egg whites
         50 gm caster sugar
         1/2 + 1/8 tsp cream of tartar

    Method

    4. Add the jam mixture into the egg yolk mixture, mix thoroughly with a balloon whisk, scraping from the bottom and sides of the mixing bowl.
    5. Fold in the flour mixture, mix till well combined.
    6. Sprinkle the cream of tartar onto the egg whites and beat till foamy.
    7. Add in the sugar in 3 batches and beat till stiff but not dry.  
    8. Pour half the egg white mixture into the flour mixture, mix thoroughly.
    9. Mix in the balance of egg white and mix till no traces of egg whites are visible.
    10. Spoon the mixture into paper cups, 3/4 full.  
    11. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg C for 35 mins. till golden brown.  Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.
    12. Invert the cupcakes on a wire rack to cool before serving.

  1. Hi Cheah,
    Just wondering whether the mini cake will sink without inverting it like the normal chiffon cake.
    Thanks for the recipe.

    1. Better not. I've never come across a chiffon cake recipe that calls for melted butter. You can use sunflower, corn or canola oil.

  25. Just wondering what's the serving size? Does it make more than one cupcake?

    1. It's more or less the size of a cupcake. I used the squarish paper cup that can stand on its own on a baking tray.

Lotus Walnut Mooncakes (2021) ~ 莲蓉核桃月饼

  Mooncakes are on sale again as the Mid-autumn Mooncake festival is not too far away.   As we are going through a rather tough time because of the Covid 19 pandemic, many mooncakes can be bought online saving the hassle of going out and having to endure long queues with appropriate social distancing at popular venues selling mooncakes.   I managed to get some lotus paste and here I'm sharing with you my post of this simple Lotus Walnut Mooncakes.

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.   Recipe for Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake Ingredients (Dough) 150 gm superfine flour, sifted 90 ml golden syrup 38 ml vegetable oil 2 ml alkaline water Egg wash - 1 whole egg + 1 tsp water, mix well and strain.

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.
