All this while, I have the impression that we can't bake chiffon cake or cotton sponge cake using a breadmaker due to the defaulted temperature preset by the breadmaker. But a client whom had bought a unit of breadmaker from me tried baking chiffon cake with it, using an extra cake pan inserted into the normal breadpan, and the cake turned out to be beautiful, soft and fluffy! I am very glad to have clients like these. Other than the chiffon cake, she has also been very adventurous in trying out and sharing new bread, cakes, jams recipes with me.
To persue my quest of baking chiffon cake with my breadmaker, I spoke to my breadmaker supplier and checked if it is possible, and yes, he reverted that it is indeed possible. In fact, he even has the cake pan that fits in perfectly in the breadpan. I waited for the breadpan to arrive and have finally got to try it.
|It was a fluffy bake! If only you can have a whiff of the nice pandan aroma!|
· 2 egg yolk 蛋黄· 1tbsp brown sugar 黄糖· 1.5tbsp grapeseed oil 葡萄籽油· 50g pandan juice (blended 8-10 pandan leaves with about 300ml water) 斑兰汁· 50g cake flour (superfine flour) 蛋糕粉/底筋面粉
· 2 egg white 蛋白· 1.5tbsp brown sugar 黄糖· 1/8 tsp salt 盐
Sieve flour and set aside. Using an egg separator, separate egg white and yolk.
Using a handheld electric mixer, whish the egg white with salt until frothy, add in brown sugar, continue to beat at low to medium speed (about 2min) until it reaches stiff peak. Set aside. At the same time, turn on breadmaker, select mode no. 13 (bake), adjust time to 00:59, press START.
Combine pandan juice, oil and sugar with egg yolk. Beat until thoroughly combined. Add in sieved flour. Combine until thoroughly mixed.
Add in 1/3 of egg white meringue into egg yolk mix. Mix with a plastic spatula. Then add the batter into the remaining 2/3 egg white meringue. Mix until creamy. Line the bottom of cake pan with a carefully cut out round baking pan. Slowly pour in batter into cake mould. Lightly tap cake pan to remove trapped air.
Place cake pan into preheated breadpan. When time of baking reaches 59min, adjust TIME so that breadmaker continues to bake, making total bake time 1hr15min.
Remove cake pan, turn upside down to cool on cooling rack.
将1/3 的蛋白加入搅拌好的蛋黄糊中， 用塑胶刮刀捞起底部的面糊倒回剩下的蛋白中翻拌至细腻浓稠 。蛋糕摸底部垫油纸，将蛋糕糊倒入，轻轻敲打把大泡震出来。将蛋糕桶放进面包桶内，开始烘烤，当烘烤完成59分钟，再继续调时间，以至总共烘烤时间为一小时15分钟。烤完，将蛋糕桶 翻转放在烤架冷却后用塑胶刮刀脱膜。
