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.

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.
