Nutmeg Juice Chiffon Cake ~ 豆蔻戚风蛋糕

Very often nutmeg is used as a spice to enhance the flavour of food be it in cooking or baking.  A friend who  just returned from Penang, gave me a bottle of nutmeg juice. The tangy juice is made into a syrup which can be used to make a refreshing beverage and here I have added it into this chiffon cake.  Although nutmeg has a good many health benefits but during pregnancy, it's unsafe to be consumed in larger doses other than those found in food, for it may cause miscarriage or birth defects.  Not recommended during breastfeeding.

65 gm caster sugar
100 ml canola oil
100 ml warm water

3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

6 egg whites
65 gm caster sugar

Method
  1. Dissolve the nutmeg juice with the 100 ml warm water, set aside.

Kaya Slice ~ 咖椰片
