Honey Blue Pea Flower Chiffon Cake ~ 蜜糖蓝豌豆花戚风蛋糕

I have posted a Blue pea chiffon cake before but this time I tried making it into a two-tone chiffon cake and the recipe is slightly different.  Although the recipes are different with the former adding cornflour and the latter adding rice flour, the end result is about the same, yieldig a soft, moist and light cake.






Honey Blue Pea Flower Chiffon Cake  ~  蜜糖蓝豌豆花戚风蛋糕
Ingredients (A)
  • 6 'L'egg yolks
  • 70 gm caster sugar
  • 1.1/2 Tbsp honey
  • 45 ml milk
  • 75 gm plain flour
  • 30 gm rice flour
  • 53 ml vegetable oil
  • 70 blue pea petals + 100 ml water to  boil and strain  out 20 ml tea
  • Add a pinch of baking powder into the blue pea batter
(B)
  • 6 'L'egg whites
  • 45 gm caster sugar
Method

  1. Boil the water with the blue pea petals, discard the petals, strain out 20 ml tea, let cool and set aside.
  2. Sift the plain flour twice, stir in the rice flour, mix well.
  3. Whisk the egg yolks with honey, then add in oil, milk.  Mix well.  Sift in the flour and rice mixture.  Mix till well incorporated.
  4. In a clean bowl, beat egg whites till foamy, add in the sugar in batches and beat till peaks form but not dry.
  5. Fold in 1/3 of the egg whites into the egg yolk batter, mix well.  Then pour this into the remaining egg whites.  Mix well.
  6. Divide the batter into 2 portions, add blue pea tea into 1 portion and add a pinch of baking powder.  Mix well.
  7. Pour the blue pea batter into an ungreased 23cm chiffon cake pan, level it and tap it on the worktop twice.
  8. Gently scoop the plain batter to cover the blue pea batter. Tap the pan once to remove 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.  Remove the pan from the oven and invert immediately to cool completely before unmoulding by hand.

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!

Char Siew Pau ~ 蒸叉烧包

I have been itching to try out a Pau recipe and vaguely remember that I did make it once, long, long ago.  So I  got hold of my old file of recipes and finally managed to retrieve it.  I did it recently and must say that I'm satisfied with the result.  The texture of the Pau was soft and a bit chewy, wholesome and filling too.  Naturally, they didn't look so nice and round like the ones sold in the dim sum restaurants, but nonetheless I think homemade ones can be just as delectable as well.
