Japanese Black Pearl Chiffon Cake ~ 日式黑珍珠戚风蛋糕


This Japanese Black Pearl Chiffon Cake has been baked by many bloggers and all of them gave the thumbs up for this recipe.  So, how can I give this a miss it and not try it out myself.   I was so pleased with the result and the cake stayed moist and soft even after being kept refrigerated for a couple of days.  Definitely a keeper recipe!

日式黑珍珠戚风蛋糕

Ingredients  (A)                                         


  • 5 egg yolks
  • 60 ml corn/canola oil
  • 100 ml milk
  • 130 gm dark cooking chocolate
  • 55 gm plain flour
  • 25 gm cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • Snow powder and choc chips for decoration (optional)
(B)
  • 5 egg whites
  • 80 gm caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
Method
  1. Melt cooking chocolate in a double boiler, set aside.
  2. Sift plain flour, twice and on the third time, sift together with the baking soda and baking powder.  Sift in the cocoa powder and mix well with a whisk.
  3. In a large bowl, with a ball whisk beat egg yolks, oil, milk and melted chocolate.  Stir well.
  4. With a ball whisk, mix the flour mixture into the egg yolk mixture into a smooth paste.
  5. Whisk egg whites till bubbles form, add salt and lemon juice.  When the egg whites have increased in volume, gradually add in sugar and beat till stiff peaks form, but not dry.
  6. Fold egg whites into yolk mixture in three batches, till well combined.
  7. Pour batter into an ungreased 22 cm chiffon cake pan, gently tap the pan on the worktop to dispel any air bubbles.
  8. Place pan onto the lower rack of the preheated oven and bake at 180 deg.C for about 45 to 50 mins.  Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.
  9. Invert cake immediately and unmould the cake when it's completely cooled.  Use a thin blade knife or spatula to go round the sides of the pan and the centre core, and remove the base from the cake.
  10. Decorate with snow powder and choc chips, if desired.

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.

Eel soup

This is an ABC soup with a difference.  Yes, there's fish in this soup ..... added a block of eel in it.  Curiosity was what prompted me to cook this soup.  I asked the fishmonger what is the best way to prepare this fish and he said that this eel makes a very tasty soup and I can't agree  more! Sweet and tasty soup with no fishy smell at all! Recipe for Eel Soup Ingredients 350 gm eel 2 carrots, cut into cubes 2 tomatoes,cut into wedges 3 onions, cut into wedges 2.5 lt of water 20  white peppercorns, crushed Seasalt to taste Method Clean up the fish, set aside. Put the water into a pot, bring to a boil and add in the carrots, tomatoes, onions and peppercorns. Simmer for a while and add in the eel. Cover, lower the heat to medium low and let the soup simmer for about 1.1/2 hours. Add salt to taste. Ladle and serve immediately.

Braised Pork Belly with Mui Choy ~ 梅菜焖五花肉

Mui Choy is preserved mustard greens and there are two types, one is salty while the other is sweet.  There are many ways of cooking mui choy with pork belly.  Instead of braising, you can steam it with minced pork but here I am using only the sweet mui choy and I braised the pork belly with it.  This is a flavourful dish and you can serve it with plain rice or plain porridge. Braised Pork Belly with Mui Choy   ~    梅菜焖五花肉 Ingredients  400 gm pork belly cut into bite size 100 gm  preserved sweet mui choy 3 cloves of garlic 2 slices ginger Seasoning for the pork belly 1 Tbsp dark soya sauce 1/4 Tbsp sugar 1/4 Tbsp sesame oil 1/4 Tbsp oyster sauce 1/2 tsp pepper 1/8 tsp light soya sauce Method Season the pork belly for about an hour or more.  Set aside. Soak the mui choy for 45 mins., rinse and squeeze dry.  Cut into slices Heat some oil in the wok, fry the mui choy.  Add in the ginger slices.  Stir-fry. Add in the pork  belly, fry for a while and
