Japanese Peach Tea Chiffon Cake ~ 日式桃抹茶戚风蛋糕


This Peach Tea chiffon cake is slightly different from the  Matcha Green tea chiffon both in taste and appearance.  This Peach tea is sweetened with sugar and the colour is not as green as the normal Matcha powder.   The taste of tea is not so distinct as Green tea but overall the cake is soft, moist and light ..... just yummy!




I always seem to have a problem unmoulding a chiffon cake.  Just look at the patches!   Have googled to see how to unmould a chiffon cake by hand, must give it a try when I next bake a chiffon.


Recipe for Japanese Peach Tea Chiffon Cake  日式桃抹茶戚风蛋糕  (adapted from 'here')  

Ingredients (A)

  • 6 egg yolks
  • 60 gm caster sugar
  • 6 Tbsp canola oil
  • 8 Tbsp water
  • 150 gm superfine flour
  • 20 gm Japanese Peach Tea powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
(B)     6 egg whites
          110 gm caster sugar

Method
  1. With a hand whisk, whisk the egg yolks, add the sugar, mix well.  Then add in oil and water and whisk altogether till well combined.
  2. Sift the superfine flour, and baking powder together.  Mix in the tea powder till well combined.
  3. Add the flour mixture into the egg mixture in three batches.  Whisk till totally incorporated and free of lumps.
  4. In a clean mixing bowl, whisk egg whites till bubbly, add in the sugar gradually, increase the speed and whisk till stiff peaks form.
  5. Add 1/3 of the beaten egg whites into the batter and gradually fold in the remaining egg whites.
  6. Pour the batter into a clean, ungreased chiffon pan, run a chopstick round the pan and lightly tap the pan on the work top to release any air bubbles.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg.C for  about 50 mins., test with a skewer till it comes out clean.
  8. Immediately invert the cake and let it cool completely before unmoulding by running a knife round the side and bottom of the pan.

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.

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.

Steamed minced Pork with Mui Choy ~ 梅菜蒸猪肉

This is a homey, comforting dish which you can never find on the menu of a Chinese restaurant.  Perhaps you may find it in an economy rice stall.  There are two types of Mui Choy (梅菜) or preserved mustard, one is salty while the other is sweet and in this recipe, I used the latter.  The Mui Choy lends flavour and aroma to the dish and most often is paired with pork, either minced or pork belly chunks.  In this recipe, the minced meat must be with a bit of fat, otherwise the dish will turn out dry and dense.  Give this a try and see whether you like it or not.
