Sunquik Mango Chiffon Cake

Apologise for the not so nice picture. This was taken from my Iphone.
Made this cake using the Sunquik Mango Concentrate. The mango concentrate smells and tasted very nice on its own, but the flavour of the mango was not that strong after making it into a cake. Sunquik Orange Chiffon is better.
Anyway, here is the recipe. You can replace Mango concentrate with Orange concentrate. You may try with the other range of Sunquik concentrate if you like. Let me know the results!
Mango Sunquik Chiffon Cake
7 eggs white
120g castor sugar
1/4tsp cream of tartar
Yolk Batter
7 egg yolks
150g cake flour
1/2tsp baking powder
150ml of mango concentrate
4tbsp oil (corn oil/sunflower oil)
1. Preheat oven at 170 degree celcius, preheat 8" chiffon tin.
2. Mix all ingredients in the yolk batter.
3. Whisk egg white till slightly foamy. Add caster sugar slowly. Whisk still form soft peaks.
4. Mix yolk batter into merigue.
5. Pour into chiffon tin and bake for 1hr or till golden brown.
6. Invert immediately to cool after removing from oven.

Thoughts ... Baby

Its been months since I uploaded anything. Have been busy with taking care of the baby, supervising my elder one on his school work that I hardly have much time for myself these days. Felt a bit low initially with the lost freedom and frustrated with Baby contantly wanting to be carried.

Thankfully these not so happy days have passed and with Baby half a year old now, situation has improved. At least I am now back to work and baby smiles more than he cries now. He is now able to recognise people around him and smiles and laughs when we talk or play with him.

I am also able to find some time to do some bakes and cook. But then too lazy to take pictures these days as most of the what I make are similar to what I have done previously.

Books and Keeping Sane

I must have been insane to post this Title without any content. Haha... Took me months to realise that this posting was blank.

Anyway, I have been buying many books to keep sane and even found a couple of chinese books from Taiwan interesting. Unfortunately, I had problem finding out some of the ingredients that they were using. Anyhow, the 2 books below from Xiao Xiao Mi Tong is simple to cook. I have tried the salted egg meat ball recipe and I like it.

Resolutions for Year 2010

Is almost Chinese New Year. This year, I won't be baking any cookies due to a big tummy on hand.

Last year hasn't been a very smooth year especially at work. This year, I hope it would be better. Well, hopefully everything will be better be it health, wealth, career, family, etc.

Resolutions for 2010
  • Buy more cookbooks. The next book on the list is the new release from Rose Levy - Rose Heavenly Cakes.
  • Buy a bigger book shelf to house my collection. (Have to think of where to put the shelf)
  • Avoid offending 小人.
  • Good health to all, especially my family members and friends.

Happy New Year 2010

This should have been uploaded after Christmas but due to my laziness, it was delayed till now. I bought this 3 Tier Plate from Ikea during the weekend when they were selling it for $19 instead of $29.

Instead of putting home made pastries as I did not back any pastries for Christmas, I have used it to put savoury stuff like condiments such as crepe skin, cucumber for Peking duck, fried spring roll, fried sotong yew cha kuey and cocktail sausages.

A very useful tray as you could stack food item upwards and save some space at the dining table. Very pleased with myself to have gotten this at $19.
