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

 

Kobe Beef and Kobe One Day Trip

After Kobe trip with wonderful kobe beef dinner on 3 years back, I have another chance to visit Kobe again to enjoy world's famous beef steak. From forum and internet, travellers' feedback on kobe beef lunch cannot beat dinner set. With previous experience which Camus and myself will never forget in our life, I decided to give lunch a try and then make a comparison between set lunch and set dinner. I did some survey before go for kobe beef lunch, Wakkoqu restaurant has many good review. So my plan is to visit this restaurant. We arrived at Sannomiya station on that day before 12pm and would like to have short walk around that area before go for lunch. When we just arrived at Sannomiya Hankyu Station, we saw a long queue outside another kobe beef restaurant. We walked closer to look at the menu, the price is more cheaper compare with Wakkoqu. I believed it has some good reasons why people queue for the meal. We followed the queue and had our kobe beef steak lunch. The restaurant I mentioned here is Steak Land. We were arranged to dine at second floor, they served in tepanyaki style and guests were sitted around the table while the chef will cook and serve at center area. After put order, they served us salad, miso soup, steak sauce and plain water. When they brought two big pieces of beef (for 4 serving) to the table, I was regretted with my decision made. By looking at the kobe beef, it looks not fresh with brown in colour. Oh no, my main target for this trip gone. I had to stop blaming myself at that moment and pray hard that the beef will turn out good in taste. Compare with previous kobe beef dinner, I had to agreed that lunch is really not as good as dinner. After looking at how the chef cook the steak (obviously not as "proffesional" as our kobe beef dinner's chef), I started to enjoy my meal. I changed my mind after my first bite on the medium cook kobe beef, it was still soooooo soft and melt in mouth. With 2980yen for this set lunch, I can say I was satisfied with it at this price. Of course, if you aim for better quality and environment, I would recommend Mouriya Restaurant which we went for dinner. After the lunch, we proceeded with our trip at Kobe area. We walked from Sannomiya to China Town, then to Harbourland. Then end our one day trip at Kobe. I wish to return again for next Kobe beef romantic dinner with my dear Camus.

AromaxCoffee

Recently, there are new types of coffee from Pokka Company in Japan. It is an aromax series coffee, four types of new aromax coffee namely "Black", "Ice Latte", "Espresso" and "Premium Gold". I have tried all of them and collected the cans of these 4 types coffee.

Drinking cute mini can coffee in Japan is enjoyable but this is the first time I collected the cans. The reason is they are special in the sense that this is the first time I saw mini can with cover. Hence I collected 4 of them and wanted to bring them back to Malaysia as one of my collection.

I bought all of them from company's vending machine, 90 yen each (about RM3.20). Normal price from outside vending machine is 120 yen each (about RM4.20).

Kaya_11"kaya" is a jam made with coconut milk (santan), sugar and eggs. Pandan leaves are added during cooking process to bring more fragrance to the jam.

I have this homemade kaya recipe from my mother while she made kaya jam last Sunday. The ingredients used are very simple but I was impressed with her patient during the cooking process. It was really time consuming to make the delicious kaya. You need to stir the mixture continuously during the cooking process in order to get the smooth texture kaya.

If this time consuming version does not suit you, go for this version, which only required less than 30 minutes to get your kaya jam ready.

IrohakarutaKyotoIzakaya居酒屋is a place where Japanese gather together for eating, drinking, smoking and talking. To be more precise, it is a place for them to drink, drink, drink and drink non-stop.

Since it is a place for drinking, many Izakaya provide drinking buffer (飲み放題 "nomihoudai") package. If you are to order a set package, many of them come with appetizer, main dishes, salad, dessert and some side dishes. The drinks are buffet type and you can choose from soft drink, wine, cocktail, sake and others. Most of them are alcohol.

I have visited to many of the Izakaya during the stay in Japan. Most of the times were attended farewell or welcoming party with Japanese colleague. I have no chance to take good photo during dining with them.

Sukiyaki_2When 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.
