Sukiyaki 鋤焼 | Dinner At Japanese Sensei House

When I was working in Japan, I attended Japanese class in order to improve my Japanese language. I have a Japanese teacher who taught me the Japanese language for about a year when I stayed there. Before the training end, I was invited to her house for dinner. I feel glad to have the opportunity to visit her house.

After Green Island western food restaurant, there is another newly open western food restaurant in Bayan Lepas area. It was formerly known as Home's Cafe, and now change to Mikki G. We managed to visit this place on last Friday, second day of the opening. 10% discount on all foods and it is applicable until end of April 2013. Heard that the chef is from Legend hotel in KL. The interior of the restaurant remained the same as previous and worker's uniform is still black in colour. Menu wise, they serve more on western food, including chicken chop, chicken cordon bleu, roast rosemary chicken, spegetti and etc. Lamb shrank is popular according to my colleague. Besides, the old menu "Local Delight" from Home's Cafe are still available.

 

Low Sugar Coffee Chiffon Cake Recipe

This cake is specially dedicated to an OLD baby boy that was born on 67 years ago, exactly 33 years earlier than my OLD baby Camus. Now, the OLDer baby has diabetes and cannot consume much sugar. Everytime I bake a cake, he will complain that my cake is tooooooooo sweet. To cater for his needs, I change my chiffon cake recipe to low sugar version, I choose coffee flavour because... besides my mummy, the one that he cannot let go and cannot survive without is COFFEE...and yes, the "he" I mentioned here is my lovely daddy! It has been long time I want to come out with low sugar version cake, pastry, and etc, and being lazy is my natural instinct. Dad's birthday is a good reason for me to start my low sugar recipe. Ingredients5 egg yolks (about 85g)10g sugar75g hot water + 10g instant coffee (mix well)1tbsp coffee paste70g corn oil120g cake flour 5 egg whites (about 200g)45g sugar1/2tsp cream of tartar Method (step by step picture here)1. Add sugar into egg yolks, immediately whisk with hand whisk until pale and light.2. Add in corn oil, mix well.3. Add in coffee water and coffee paste, mix well.4. Sift in flour, stir until well combined. You will get a thick mixture now.5. Whisk egg white with electrical hand mixer at low speed until big bubbles form, add in cream of tartar.6. Continue whisk from medium to high speed until small bubbles form (egg white is foamy and white in color now).7. Slowly add in sugar in few badges, continue whisk at high speed until soft peak formed.8. Add 1/3 of meringue into egg yolk mixture, mix gently with hand whisk until well combined. You will get a light mixture.9. Change hand whisk to rubber spatula, fold in 1/2 of the remaining meringue. GENTLY fold with egg yolks batter until 50% combined (you will still see white meringue now).10. Add all remaining meringue and fold GENTLY with spatula again until well combined (your mixture should be very light and volume now).11. Pour batter into chiffon pan. Using satay stick / chopstick, run around baking pan side and then draw curly pattern all the way in the middle and bang pan on counter top to remove big bubbles. Level the surface and bake in preheated oven at 160C with fan forced for 45 minutes or until cooked.12. When cooked, remove from oven and invert chiffon pan immediately to prevent shrinkage. The pan must remain inverted until fully cool.13. To remove chiffon cake from pan, carefully run the pan outer, inner and bottom side with thin spatula or knife. Invert pan to remove cake on big serving plate. At first I was afraid the cake will shrink after reduce half of the sugar quantity, but I am very happy to see the cake turn out very nice. For taste wise, my dad able to accept this sweetness level by finished 1~2 pieces of the cake. Even though the level of sweetness has reduce, but the coffee fragrance did brought me a "Yes, delicious!" comment from all the other family members. I am very happy to say that I had successfully make a low sugar birthday cake for dad this year, wish him happy birthday, healty and properous day ahead!
