Banana Cocoa Chiffon Cake ~ 香蕉可可雪纺蛋糕


I have posted many chiffon cake recipes in my blog and now at a loss of what other 'creations' that I should concoct to share.  Fortunately, for chiffon cakes, one can mix and match the ingredients and most of the time, the end result is acceptable and not disappointing.  So, today I'm going to share with you a Banana Cocoa Chiffon Cake with some 'dots' of chocolate chips.  As usual, chiffon cakes are light, soft, moist and will readily be enjoyed with a hot cuppa.








Banana Cocoa Chiffon Cake  ~  香蕉可可雪纺蛋糕 (adapted from 'here' with adjustments)
Ingredients (A)
5 'L'egg yolks
80 gm plain flour
1.1/4 Tbsp cornflour
44 gm caster sugar
50 gm vegetable oil
14 gm cocoa powder
144 gm mashed over-ripe bananas
25 gm choc chips

5 'L'egg whites
1 tsp lemon juice or white vinegar
80 gm caster sugar

Method
  1. Sift together plain flour, cornflour and cocoa powder.  Set aside.
  2. Whisk egg yolks with sugar till creamy and pale.  Mix in oil and mashed bananas. Mix till well incorporated.  Sift in the flour mixture and mix well.
  3. In a clean bowl, whisk the egg whites till frothy, add in the vinegar, continue beating on low, gradually add in the sugar in batches.  Once less bubbles appear, whisk on high till stiff peaks form but not dry.
  4. Fold 1/3 of egg whites into the egg yolk mixture, then pour the mixture into the remaining egg whites, add in choc chips.  Fold in till fully incoporated but not to deflate the egg whites.
  5. Pour batter into an ungreased 23 cm chiffon cake pan.  Bake in a preheated oven @ 170 deg.C for 50 to 55 mins.  Test with skewer till it comes out clean.
  6. Remove cake from oven, invert the cake immediately to cool completely before unmoulding by hand.

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!

Bika Ambon Panggang ~ 印尼糕

Kuih Bika Ambon or Honeycomb cake is an Indonesian dessert and from the outset it looks quite challenging to attempt baking this cake in order to achieve a honeycomb pattern.   There are many recipes online and I also googled for Indonesian recipes and watched the video on youtube.  I was looking for a recipe that is not so complicating but straightforward and I managed to come across Whattocooktoday's blog and found her recipe.  I was very delighted when the cake turned out to be a success.  Thanks, Marvellina!   Bika Ambon Panggang  ~   印尼糕 ( adapted from  'here'  with adjustments)   Ingredients for : - Yeast mixture 2 tsp dry yeast 1 Tbsp plain flour 1 Tbsp sugar 2 Tbsp warm water Coconut Milk 350 ml coconut milk 160 gm sugar 1/2 tsp turmeric powder 10 kaffir lime leaves (tear to smaller pieces) 2 lemon grass, bruised for flavour Cake Batter 180 gm tapioca flour 1/4 tsp salt 5 large eggs   Method Mix the ingredients in the Yeast mixture and set aside to let it ferment.
