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. 

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.

Double Boiled Herbal Chicken Soup

Double boiling is slow cooking ........ means to put a soup pot or any covered ceramic or steel pot inside a bigger pot, immerse in boiling water, and let the soup cook at a lower temperature.  Hence the soup is cooked from heat generated from the boiling water and not from direct heat source. Double boiling lets the soup ingredients slowly release their nutrients into the soup, thus making it tasty and wholesome.  It's a long cooking process, roughly averaging 2 to 4 hours.  The tip is not to open the cover to check on the soup as it'll bring down the temperature and affect the cooking process.  The plus point is there's little evaporation and the soup will not boil over.  The only thing is to monitor that there's enough water in the bigger pot and not let it run dry.  Of course, nowadays, the slow cooker is another alternative to double boiling, saves the hassle of checking the water level.
