Gula Melaka/Palm Sugar Chiffon Cake ~ 椰糖戚风蛋糕


This Gula Melaka or Palm Sugar Chiffon  Cake is very aromatic and it does taste a bit like butterscotch but this is more rich.   It is soft and fluffy and in this recipe, I used coconut powder dissolved in water instead of coconut milk and the result is not disappointing at all!

  3. Beat egg yolks in a ball whisk, add in canola oil and whisk till well combined.  Add gula melaka mixture into egg yolk mixture, mix well.
  4. Whisk in the flour mixture till well combined.
  5. Beat egg whites till frothy, add in the lemon juice, beat till soft peaks, add in sugar gradually and beat till stiff but not dry.

  8. Drop the pan about 6 inches from the tabletop to release any air bubbles, repeat.

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.
