PANDAN CHIFFON CAKE (recipe taken from Prima's website)
100 g PrimaFlour Top Flour (*)
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tbsp Pandan Juice (**)
100 ml Coconut Milk
4 Egg Yolks
50 ml Corn Oil (***)
¼ tsp Green Colouring
5 Egg Whites
¼ tsp Cream of Tartar
100 g Castor Sugar
Pinch of Salt
Preheat oven to 170°.
Extract pandan juice from finely pounded pandan leaves and add to coconut milk.
(**) I did not use pandan juice but used about 1 tsp of pandan paste instead.
Add egg yolk, 50 g sugar, oil, colouring and salt to the coconut mixture. Mix well using hand whisk.
(***) I reduced the oil to about 35 gm or ml instead of all the 50 ml.
Sift PrimaFlour Top Flour and baking powder and fold into mixture. Mix until smooth. Set aside.
(*) I did not use Prima's Top Flour but I used whatever flour I have at home. So for the first time I baked this, I use part PH's topflour and part cake flour. Second time I bake, I used all HongKong flour.
Beat egg whites and tartar at high speed until formy. Add remaining 50 g sugar and
beat until stiff.
Add 1/3 beaten egg white to the yolk mixture and mix using a hand whisk.
Slowly fold in this mixture to the remaining 2/3 of beaten egg whites.
Pour mixture into an ungreased 18cm chiffon tin and bake for about 50mins.
Turn tin over on a cake rack to cool before loosening cake.
I actually like this recipe better than the other one I have shared. When I do this recipe, I only need one bowl to beat the egg whites. As for the egg yolks I only need to use a whisk and whisk it by hand. No need to be thick and creamy texture. Try it and let me know if you like it.
