Nestum Chiffon Cake ~ 麦片戚风蛋糕



What is nestum?  It's a kind of cereal made from a delicious recipe of nutrient rich multi-grains, such as wholewheat, corn, rice and milk, packed with vitamins and minerals. I adapted the recipe for this Nestum Chiffon Cake  from my Black Sesame Chiffon Cake which I posted to share, some time ago.  This chiffon cake is very soft, it can literally 'dance' when you jiggle it!



Nestum Chiffon Cake ~  麦片戚风蛋糕

Ingredients (A)
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 30 gm caster sugar
  • 50 ml vegetable oil
  • 80 ml milk
  • 80 gm superfine flour
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 25 gm nestum
(B)

  • 6 egg whites
  • 60 gm caster sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon juice or 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
Method

  1. Sift flour with the baking powder, salt and mix well.  Stir in the nestum cereal.  Mix thoroughly.
  2. Using a ball whisk, whisk the egg yolks with 30 gm sugar till sugar has dissolved.  Stir in the oil little by little till mixture is completely combined.  Add in milk and stir well to mix.
  3. Stir the flour mixture into the egg mixture with the ball whisk till well combined.
  4. In a clean bowl, beat egg whites till bubbles form, add in cream of tartar.  Continue beating, then add in the 60 gm of sugar in three batches and beat till soft peaks form but not dry.
  5. Fold in 1/3 egg whites into the egg mixture with a spatula.  Mix well, then pour the batter into the remaining egg whites, fold till egg whites are fully incorporated.
  6. Pour the batter into an ungreased 23 cm chiffon pan.  Tap the pan on the kitchen top to expel air bubbles.
  7. 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.  Remove the pan from the oven and invert immediately to cool completely before unmoulding by hand.

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try. 

Wife Biscuit (Lo Por Paeng) 老婆餅

Happy New Year, everyone!   My first post for 2015 is 'Wife Biscuit' aka 'Lo Por Paeng', a soft and flaky pastry with winter melon filling which is a very popular delicacy in Hong Kong.  The ones that I find here are not the same as their  flaky counterparts, instead they are crispy and thin.   I've been surfing the internet for a recipe and I was very happy when I stumbled upon a Youtube video from SiuKitchen .   The video is in Cantonese and she gives very detailed steps on how to make these flaky pastries.   The pastries were good and stayed flaky and soft for three days in an airtight container.  I needn't have to reheat them in the oven toaster.
