Baked Egg Cake ~ 烤鸡蛋糕


The recipe for this soft and light Baked Egg Cake is derived from the original recipe for steamed egg cake or Ji Dan Gao  (糕). I like the texture of this cake which is not too sweet and it does pair very well with a hot cup of our local black coffee.

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 whole egg
  • 50 ml canola oil
  • 65 gm self-raising flour
  • 5 gm cocoa powder + 1 tsp water
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • a pinch of salt

  2. Sieve in self-raising flour, mix well and set aside.
  3. In another clean mixing bowl, whisk egg whites till foamy, add in icing sugar in three batches and whisk till stiff peaks but not dry.
  4. Fold in 1/3 meringue into the flour mixture with a spatula, mix well.  Fold in the remaining meringue, mix thoroughly.
  5. Take out 2 tablespoon batter and mix with the cocoa mixture.
  6. Scoop some plain batter into a lined 8.1/2 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pan alternating with the cocoa batter.  Use a skewer to make a swirl pattern.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven @ 170 deg.C for 35 mins.  Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.
  8. Overturn the pan onto a wire rack to let the cake cool completely.   
Note :  The cake will shrink a little as with most sponge cakes.  Trim off the sides before slicing to serve.

Chicken Floss Cake ~ 鸡肉松蛋糕

It's normal to find buns coated with meat floss in any bakery, but yet to find a meat floss coated piece of cake.  I saw this Chicken Floss Cake on youtube and was eager to give this a shot.  The recipe is quite similar to a chiffon cake and I was curious to find out the taste which should be slightly sweetish and saltish.  Wouldn't it be weird, I wonder.  But it turned out that the taste is rather unique with a light and soft texture and my family members gave me a thumbs up and asked for more!

Lavender lemon cookies ~ 薰衣草柠檬曲奇

These dainty looking Lavender lemon cookies have a subtle taste of lavender, not too much for I used  fresh leaves instead of dried flowers.  They are buttery, taste like shortbread with a light floral aroma.  They are simple, cute and sure to impress.  Try gifting them at a Christmas cookie swap or great to give as a gift during the coming festive season.
