Chicken Floss Chiffon Cake ~ 鸡松戚风蛋糕


I kick start 2019 with  this  post  ....... Chicken Floss Chiffon Cake. 
This is another cake with a layer of chicken floss and topped with more chicken floss and a sprinkling of lightly toasted sesame seeds.  This time I baked this with my normal chiffon cake recipe.  The recipe is slightly different from the Chicken Floss Cake which I posted not too long ago.  But if you ask me, both cakes are equally good in texture and delicious.  Yumm is the word!







鸡松戚风蛋糕
Chicken Floss Chiffon Cake
Ingredients (A)
  • 5 'L' egg yolks
  • 50 ml canola oil
  • 65 ml milk
  • 40 gm caster sugar
  • 85 gm plain flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 heaped Tbsp peanut butter or mayonnaise (I used peanut butter)
  • Chicken floss
  • Lightly toasted sesame seeds
(B)
  • 5 'L' egg whites
  • 40 gm caster sugar
Method
  1. Beat egg yolks with sugar with a ball whisk, then add in oil followed by milk.  Whisk till well blended.  Sift in plain flour and add in salt and vanilla.  Blend well.
  2. In a clean bowl, whisk egg whites till frothy, then add in sugar in three batches.  Beat till stiff peaks but not dry.
  3. Fold in 1/3 egg whites into the egg yolk mixture, mix well.  Then pour this mixture into the remaining egg whites.  Cut and fold in till fully incorporated but not to overmix.
  4. Pour 1/4 or 1/2 of the batter into an ungreased  21 or 23 cm chiffon cake pan.  Then sprinkle on some chicken floss.   Cover with the remaining batter and tap the pan on the worktop to release any air bubbles.
  5. Bake in a preheated oven @ 170 deg.C for 45 to 50 mins. till golden brown.  Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.
  6. Remove the cake from the oven and immediately invert it to let cool completely before unmoulding by hand.
  7. Microwave the peanut butter till soft and spread on top of the cake.  Then sprinkle on some chicken floss and lightly toasted sesame seeds.
  8. Slice up and serve.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…

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 Angku Kuih ~ 班兰叶龟糕

I've never thought of making Angku Kuih or Red Tortoise Cake simply because it's so readily available in my daily market place.  But there have been so many posts of this traditional kuih by my fellow food bloggers and  they look so cute and beautiful that I just cannot resist the temptation of not trying my hands at it.

I must admit that making this kuih can be rather tedious and the amount of work can really make your head spin.  But if you prepare the mung bean filling a day ahead, then it does help to lighten your work quite a fair bit.  For all the  effort, these Pandan Angku Kuih came out beautifully.  To see how the kuih will be like the next day, I kept some in a container at room temperature.  To my surprise the skin of the kuih stayed soft till late the next day.  I didn't have to steam them again.  All I can say is that my efforts paid off handsomely and I'm so pleased.  Now, I've no qualms  experimenting this Angku Kuih with different flavours :)
