Thai Milk Tea Chiffon Cake ~ 泰国奶茶戚风蛋糕


I made this Thai milk tea chiffon using the recipe for my  Peppermint tea chiffon,  adjusted the tea and this time I omitted the tea leaves in the cake.  This chiffon is incredibly light and fluffy and the Thai milk tea flavour lingers on after each bite.  The tea is indeed very fragrant and the sweet aroma filled the air when the cake was baking in the oven!







Thai Milk Tea Chiffon Cake  ~  泰国奶茶戚风蛋糕   
Ingredients (A)
  • 10 gm Thai milk tea leaves
  • 200 gm plain flour, sifted twice
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 70 gm caster sugar
  • 100 ml canola oil
  • 150 ml Thai milk tea  (200 ml warm milk, steep in the Thai milk tea leaves for 10 mins. strain to get 150 ml)
(B)
  • 6 egg whites
  • 70 gm caster sugar
Method
  1. Prepare the milk tea and set aside.
  2. Sift the plain flour twice with baking powder and salt. 
  3. Beat the egg yolks with sugar till creamy, add in oil and continue beating till thoroughly mixed.
  4. Add in the strained milk tea, mix well.
  5. Add in the sifted flour, mix well, set aside.
  6. Beat the egg whites till frothy and gradually add in the sugar.  Continue beating till stiff peaks form.
  7. Fold in meringue in 3 batches and mix lightly till no white streaks form.
  8. Pour batter into an ungreased 23 cm chiffon pan.  Lightly tap the pan to prevent air bubbles.
  9. Bake in a preheated oven @ 170 deg.C for 55 to 60 mins. till golden brown.  Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.
  10. Immediately invert the cake and let cool completely before unmoulding the cake by hand.

    1. It's soft and fluffy, nice flavour of Thai milk tea which is quite difficult to describe unless you give it a try!

  2. 3 tsp baking powder for a 23-cm chiffon? Thought you didn't even need bp for chiffon.. I love the deep brown colour of this light chiffon!

    1. Certain chiffon cake recipes require baking powder, in this case it's the tea, heavy

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!

Pandan Ombre Butter Cake ~ 班蘭牛油蛋糕

Whenever I want to make a butter cake, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe will come to my mind.  Her recipe is foolproof and you can use it as a basic recipe and play around with variations of flavours to your liking.  Today, I'm sharing with you a Pandan Ombre Butter Cake.  I've used pandan paste instead of pandan juice as I need to have a distinct green colour to bring out the 'Ömbre' effect, which is from a darker to a lighter shade of green.  I'm pleased with the result and the texture of this cake is soft and moist and it still stays in this manner even after the third day, kept in an airtight container.

Hawaiian Biscuits ~ 夏威夷饼

I was introduced to this Hawaiian Biscuit by a friend who bought this for me to try.  I was curious about the name and was wondering what's so 'Hawaiian' about these biscuits.  I understood, after the first bite of a Macadamia nut.  So the 'Hawaiian' thing is the Macadamia nut.  Since I have some lotus paste left after the mooncake festival, thought I'd give this a try.  I used the recipe for the pastry from my 'Lo  Por Paeng/Wife Biscuit' post and just wrap up some lotus paste with some Macadamia nuts.  This is a yummy biscuit to be enjoyed at any time of the day and the biscuits stayed crispy even on the fourth day, kept in an air-tight container.
