Pandan Kaya Fudge Cake


Pandan Chiffon Cake:

4 egg yolks
90g castor sugar
160g all-purpose flour, sifted
1/2 tsp baking powder, sift with flour
1/2 tsp baking soda, sift with flour
100 ml water
1 tsp pandan essence
50g corn oil

4 egg whites
60g sugar
1/4 tsp cream of tartar

Pandan Kaya:
900 ml. Coconut milk
9 Tbsp. Hoen kwee flour / green pea flour
1 Tbsp. agar agar powder
1/2 tsp. salt
a little pandan paste
180 gm. sugar
50 gm. Dessicated coconut for covering cake


To prepare pandan chiffon cake:

Add all ingredients in (A) and mix well until the mixture is smooth and consistent.

Whip egg whites and cream of tartar of Ingredients B at medium speed until the egg whites are bubbly. Add sugar and whip at high speed until stiff form but not dry.

Fold 1/3 of whipped egg whites into mixture of Step 1. Then, pour this mixture to the remaining egg whites in the other mixing bowl. Fold lightly to combine both mixtures.

Pour this combined mixture into a ungreased 9-inch round cake pan
Bake at a preheated over at 350 deg F(175C) for 40-45 minutes.

As soon as the cake is removed from oven, quickly invert the pan and let it cool.

When the cake is completely cool, run a knife around the sides of pan to remove the cake. Slice cake into 3 layers.(Remove the brown layer from the top of cake - that was what i forgot to do)

Method for pandan Kaya:
(1) Put all the ingredients into a pot and stir till evenly mixed.
(2) Cook over medium heat till mixture thickens and smooth. Cool slightly before using. Make sure it is still in pouring consistency.
(3) Place a slice of sponge cake into a cake ring, pour in some kaya and continue the same process till the last layer is covered with pandan kaya. Press slightly after layering the cake onto the kaya and make sure that the kaya fills the sides on the last layer.
(4) Leave aside to cool and set before chilling in the fridge.
(5) Remove cake from cake ring and cover the whole cake with dessicated coconut. If you are using an ordinary cake pan, line the cake tin before putting in the first layer of cake and when removing cake, introduce air in by folding 3 or 4 strips of paper and slipped them to the side of cake. Cake will then dislodged easily.
(6) Serve chilled.

Almond Sponge Cupcake

today is my baking day :)

** Before entering the oven.....

**Freshly baked sponge cup cake out of the oven :)

i try sponge cake.. searching for recipe online.. quite a good trying :) the result is stunning good, the cake is so soft & moist... my family like it ... i feel happy & very satisfied with the outcome :)

4 eggs
100 gm cake flour
100 gm castor sugar
12 gm spongecake stabliser
25 gm milk
90 gm melted butter

** Almond flake (optional)
*** i add in some baked almond flake in batter too

Put all the ingredients except the melted butter into a mixing bowl.
Beat everything on high for at least 7 mins until ribbon stage. This means that if you use your whisk with batter to write an "8" on the batter won't sink in but will appear visible for a while. This will be the right constitency for your batter. Add in melted butter at this stage and mix in thoroughly.

Line some muffin cups & pour batter into the lined cups abt 3/4 full and bake it in a preheated oven at 190C for about 20 mins.
