Cendol House | Taman Mutiara, BM, Penang

We had our lunch at cendol house on last weekend. Before that, we passed by this shop house but never give them a try. Since they claimed that "We served best cendol in town", so we give it a try. This shop not only sell cendol, but also laksa, nasi lemak, nasi kunyit with curry chicken. Two of us ordered one each to try. Cendol is ok but this small bowl cost RM2. Santan (coconut milk) taste is not very thick but when mix with brown/coconut sugar syrup, it tasted good. Ingredients in cendol include red bean and cendol.

 

Mini Pandan Bun Recipe

All the while, I enjoy blog walking at baking blogs. Recently, I gathered many recipes from baking bloggers, some are breads, some are cakes. I found a special recipes at many baking bloggers' blog, it is call "微波面包", if you translate directly, it means "microwave bun". I believed the name had successfully misleading many people and give impression that it is bake with microwave, but in fact, it is not. It uses conventional method which you need to bake in oven. The speciality of this recipe is that it gives a very soft texture to the bun. I first try with pandan bun recipe, it looks simple but in fact quite time consuming. Rolling each mini bun to swiss roll pattern spent quite long time. Although it is time consuming, but I really enjoy the making process.

 

Temptation Chocolate Banana Cake Recipe

I am back again to bake a birthday cake, a fresh cream birthday cake. This time I make chocolate banana cake for Camus's birthday. To me, I am lazy to make this type of cake as I will need to spend 3 hours and above (can up to 5~6 hours) to make a whole cake, from weighting ingredients to decorate the cake. Also, I will accumulate the left over ingredients like fresh cream, sponge cake mix and some others for months, or years...until they are expired...then throw them away. I really feel wasted to throw away those ingredients, and many times I also very lazy to make a move to stand in kitchen for whole afternoon on my weekend to make this type of cake. Of course, some time I "got form got ohm", I will do it happily just like this time, another chocolate banana cake was born in my kitchen, for an OLD baby that was born on 34 years ago. Let me share the recipe of this chocolate banana cake with photos I have taken.

PandanChif_8This 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

PandanChif_1

PandanChif_2

PandanChif_3

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.
