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

 

Double Electric Breast Pump | Lacte Duet

I wish to share something about my electric breast pump that has been used for almost a year. I bought this breast pump when my baby was about 4 months old, after used Medela Swing for about 2-3 months. Medela Swing is single pump, which took me about 1 hour to clear both sides, Imagine if you need 2 to 3 sessions per day during working hour, how much time you left to do your work? And it was second hand pump get from my sis in law, I am not sure it was due to old pump or what, the Medela Swing can't really empty my breast. Till one day when I was frustrated, I decided to invest on new pump. With some survey, I decided to get in this Lacte Duet Double Electric Breast Pump. It was RM399 the time I bought, I told myself if I able to feed baby with my breast milk until she is one year old, I will only need around RM50 per month (start count from 5 months old), and all of us knew breast milk is much safer and healthier compare to formula. Autumnz milk storage bag to store my milk With this new pump, I managed to empty my breast, hence I get more milk. This pump comes with double motor where user can adjust both sides with different power level. With this feature, in case of one motor break down , you can still use another side. It is also more quiet compare with M.Swing and some other top brand model. Another thing that I like about this pump is you can use it with power bank, it is especially helpful where you can pump at anywhere even though without power supply. My breast pump bag with two compartments - FAME Breastpump Knapsack/Backpack (L) As the original bottles that came with the set have wider opening, the pump also came with converter where you can pump directly into your Bumblebee/Autumnz or whatever bottles that has smaller opening. It is convenient as you do not need to wash extra bottle after pump, just pump inside your storage bottles. The only thing that I am not happy with this pump is it contains many parts and you will need more time in washing the parts. I have this in my mind: "I will get in Freemie to use with this pump for my next baby", as I feel Freemie is easier to wash, and yes, this pump can use with Freemie. Besides this I would say it is a good pump. To make my pumping more comfortable, I use it with handsfree bra, it is much more convenient and can reduce shoulder pain as you no need to bend your head down by always looking at your bottles. With handsfree bra, you can work while pumping as your hands will be free at the time you pump. My day will be full of joy and satisfaction when I get this amount in one pumping session! I wish all mothers happy pumping and enjoy your breast feeeding journey!

 

Plain Cheesecake | Baked with Rice Cooker

Cake can be baked in several ways, by using an oven which is the most common way. I knew that cake can be steamed with gas as well. But have you ever tried to bake a cake with rice cooker? Basically I do not hear people in our country bake with rice cooker, and I was surprised to see a book that introduces how to bake a cake with rice cooker. Without further consideration, I bought the book.    

 

Indonesia Layer Cake with Hawflakes Recipe

After prune Indonesia layer cake, I am confident to bake layer cake again. This time, I baked Indonesia layer cake with hawflakes. Recipe follow the same as prune layer cake, except that prune was replaced with hawflakes. After first lesson learnt from prune layer cake, this time, with more cares and precaution steps, I am happy to say that it was a very successful and delicious one. This round, every single layer is baked until even darker brown, about 6~7 minutes per layer. I baked at upper level of oven. Hawflakes were arranged at 3rd and 6th layers. Melted butter was brushed for every two layers. I managed to bake a total of 8 layers at 8" square cake tin, every layers were measured evenly with one cup of mixture.

SarLaksa_3A pack of Sarawak laksa paste was brought back from my Sarawak colleague since 1 year ago. It was kept in my kitchen cabinet over a year until it hits the expiry date. At first I was thinking to throw away the paste after few months of expiry but at the end I just cook it as do not want to waste this "imported" laksa paste.

To cook Sarawak Laksa is easy but you need to prepare lots of stuffs. From cooking chicken soup until cutting vegetables and remove prawn shell, that was enough to occupy my one whole morning. But everything is so worth when I saw everyone is enjoying this imported and special Sarawak laksa that was cooked by Camus and myself.

To cook the soup, first boil 2L of water. Put in chicken meat and cook until it is cooked. Take out the chicken from hot water and leave it cool. Next, put in prawns and cook. Again, take out the prawns when it is cooked and leave it cool. Pour in laksa paste and continue cook for another half an hour. Filter out the unwanted chilis paste. Add coconut milk from one coconut and the soup is done.

To prepare the balacan paste, stir balacan powder in a hot pan, add in minced meat and dried chili flakes. Cook until the oil came out from minced meat is dry. Done!

SarLaksa

Get ready a bowl of rice vermicelli (bihun), soy bean sprouts (taugeh), chicken meat, prawn, fried egg and mint leaves. Add in laksa soup with calamansi (limau kesturi) and it is ready to be served with balacan paste!

The taste is more towards our Penang curry mee and not our asam laksa taste at all. It can open up your appetite with calamansi and balacan paste. We just like it!
