Easy Egg Tart Recipe

I make it! I make it! After years of phobia, I finally overcome it with this recipe. An egg tart recipe that I found from other blogger. I got the recipe and bought a can of evaporated creamer for quite some times. Last weekend, I decided to bake this recipe. When I saw the egg tarts were nicely came out from my smart oven, I was so happy and feel worth it to bake them in front of hot oven on this super hot weather day. This few weeks, the weather in Penang was so hot. It makes my body hot, temper hot! Thank God that the egg tarts turn out nicely, or else somebody might need to sacrifice and listen to my complain again.

 

Pandan Chiffon Cake Recipe

This is a long keep recipe that I baked few months ago. Baked it together with other chiffon cakes during my chiffon cake study. I get this recipe from Kitchen Tigress, I found her blog from youtube while I was searching for video on how to make chiffon cake.       Recipe 100g pandan leaves, use only soft and moist young leaves 70g freshly squeezed coconut milk, undiluted 180g egg whites ½tsp cream of tartar 50g sugar 60g egg yolks 50g sugar 60g corn oil ¼tsp salt 100g cake flour (sifted with baking powder) 1tsp baking powder Method 1. Blend pandan leaves with coconut milk and 1 tbsp water. Strain pandan leave and get green liquid. Set aside green liquid, which should weigh 95 g. 2. Add sugar into egg yolks, immediately whisk with hand whisk until pale and light. 3. Add in corn oil, mix well. 4. Add in green pandan coconut liquid, mix well. 5. Sift in flour, baking powder and salt, stir until well combined. 6. Whisk egg white with electrical hand mixer until big bubbles form, add in cream of tartar. 7. Continue whisk from medium to high speed until small bubbles form (egg white is white in colour now) . 8. Slowly add in sugar, continue whisk at high speed until soft peak formed. 9. Add 1/3 of meringue into egg yolk mixture, mix gently with hand whisk until well combined, you will get a light mixture. 10. Change hand whisk to spatula, fold in 1/2 of remaining meringue. GENTLY fold with egg yolks batter until 50% combined (you will still see white meringue now). 11. Add all remaining meringue and fold GENTLY with spatula again until well combined. I did in in this way: spatula cut mixture into center all the way to bottom bowl, scrap from bottom along bowl side toward you. Rotate bowl few degree and repeat this action until well combined. (your mixture should be very light and volumic now). 12. Pour batter into 18cm chiffon cake pan, level the surface. Bang mixing bowl against worktop 2-3 times to remove air bubbles. Run a chopstick round side of tin to remove more air bubbles. Level and smooth top. Bake in preheated oven at 160C at lowest rack with fan forced for 40-45 minutes.   13. Remove cake pan and invert pan immediately, cool completely before remove cake from pan. Result The cake should be evenly green but I saw some white spot, it was due to unbalance mix during step 11, meringue not mix properly with egg yolk batter. Compare with other recipe which I used 5 eggs, this recipe used only 4 eggs. It is shorter compare with 5 eggs chiffon cake on right (picture below). I prefer 5 eggs recipe. Left: 4 eggs recipe; Right: 5 eggs recipe

 

How Chiffon Cake Works? The More You Want to Know About Chiffon Cake

Something About Myself with Chiffon Cake Some time ago, I have been working on chiffon cake. I failed almost all times when come to chiffon cake, like this one. Even though I had attended a part time baking course on baking chiffon cake, but when bake on my own, I still failed to handle it. I am not sure of what causes them failed, at the end I gave up on chiffon cake and any cakes that need folding egg white into egg yolk mixture, because I handled this so BADLY.

GomaDango_2Is anyone like the Cha Dango that I shared on previous post?

Now, I would like to introduced another type of dango. As I mentioned before, there are varities of dangos that can be found in Japan, one is the Cha Dango which is made with green tea. The second type of dango that I am going to share now is black and white version of dango. What is the black and white ball ball stick shown in the picture? Well, the white balls are the dangos which are plain dangos while the blacky is kuro goma (black sesame). It doesn's look tempting to me at all, but since there was a free tasting sample, why should I miss the chance Laughing?

 

***after free tasting***

......Mmmmnnn, it tasted good, the kuro goma was melted in my mouth and the mixture of "Q-Q" dango that I like so much were perfect match. After ate the free sample, even though it was delicious, we do not buy it. We do not want to carry it to other places as we were heading to other destination. On that day, we just bought one stick at store outside the temple for about 100yen per stick, thinking to get a box of goma dango at other station in Kyoto. Well, shopping in Japan is like playing an auction game. Once you spot the thing you like, you should get it immediately. If you don't, you might lost the thing you want FOREVER! Yes, we were regretted for not buying on the spot. We do not see the goma dango anywhere else. Was really dissapointed.

Kuro goma dango

After complaining, I realised that I have not introduce the place we ate the goma dango Embarassed. We found the goma dango at Kinkakuji Temple, Kyoto. Not sure is there any other places that sell the similar dango, appreciate if anyone knows and willing to share it with us.

Ermm, my impression on the blacky dango was changed after the first try. I would like to quote a Hokkien phrase to describe the goma dango, "o kim o kim, ju kua ju jip sim" Tongue out ...muaakkss muaakkksss... Kiss
