My first bake in SEPT!
I just found out that he loves to eat sweet potato with rice and porridge. So I decided to bake a simple sweet potato chiffon cake for Ian’s birthday.
After resting from baking for so long, I was so lazy to do buttercream which was my preference. So I did chantilly cream which is easier to prepare. Zann said she prefer not to eat the cream.
I think the orange sweet potato taste much better than the purple ones.

Bought a bottle of yuja (Honey Citron Tea) yesterday. Both hub and myself loves to make citron tea with it. So I decided to use some of it to make a chiffon cake today.
Gave half of it to Mom since Zann doesn’t like chiffon.

I am back to the kitchen. Feeling so lethargy these days after the TW trip.
But today, I decided to move myself to the kitchen to bake chiffon cake by using bailey and coffee. I need my latte.
My kitchen was filled with light aroma of coffee mixed with bailey. I love that. Mom came over and took half the cake back.

Pandan Chiffon still remains my fav of all the chiffon cake.
This time, I decided to use a different recipe from a malaysian baker blogger. By using natural pandan extract and coconut oil, cake was indeed more flavourful than by using veg oil.
I have yet to try the different version of pandan chiffon found online. But I prefer Kevin Chai’s recipe.

Miss parmesan flavour so rebaked this again. The last time I baked this Parmesan Chiffon Cake was one year ago. Time flies, and my baking blog is one year old. SO many times I tell myself I will not bake so often, but I still continue. Too many bakes to try, so much curiosity to motivate myself to try.
I can’t finish my to bake list which never ends. Are u like me who loves to bake?
vegetable oil 40g + milk 75g, mix together and use bain-marie method to make it warm. Set aside to cool down.
Fold in low protein flour, 70g. Mix in parmesan cheese powder. Combine well. Add in 3 yolks. Mix well. Set aside.
In mixer bowl, add in 130g egg white, sugar 60g (3 additions). Beat till stiff peak. Pour the batter into 17cm cake tin and bake in preheated oven at 180d for 42min.

Chiffon Cake is my love. Until now, I still have not tried other flavour. This week will be totally on chiffon for everyone. I want to hone my skills on chiffon cake.
Love the nice aroma while baking this palm sugar chiffon cake.
Recipe (Adapted from Kevin Chai’s Chiffon Cake Is Done)
6 egg yolks
150g palm sugar (I reduced to 120g)
100ml coconut milk
4tbsp veg oil
140g plain flour
1/4 ts baking powder
1/4 ts salt
6 egg whites
40g castor sugar
1/4 ts cream of tartar (I didn’t add)
In a small saucepan, melt the palm sugar together with coconut milk over low heat till the sugar dissolves. Remove and pour into a bowl, leave to cool. Sift the plain flour and baking powder together. Set aside.
In another bowl, lightly beat the egg yolks, then add in the vegetable cooking oil and salt and whisk till all well combined. Add the palm sugar coconut milk mixture into the yolks/oil mixture. Mix till all well blended.
With hand whisk, add in the flour and mix till all combined well. Set aside.
Beat egg whites with medium speed till frothy, add in cream of tartar. Continue to beat until the bubbles become fine soft peak, gradually add in caster sugar and continue to beat until stiff peak.
Gently fold 1／3 of beaten egg white into egg yolk batter, use cut and fold method until well blended. Then pour the batter back to the rest of the egg white and fold until mixture is well blended.
Bake in preheated oven at 170d for 30-40min. ( I overlooked the timing)
