Chocolate Chiffon Cake 巧克力戚风蛋糕

(Recipe adapted from Okashi: sweet treats made with love)

Ingredients: (makes one 20cm chiffon tin)
5 egg yolks
20g sugar (I used 10g)
60g vegetable oil
70g water
50g cake flour
30g cocoa powder

5 egg whites
90g sugar
10g corn flour

Method:
1) Whisk egg yolks and sugar until the sugar dissolves.
2) Gradually add in vegetable oil, followed by water.
3) Sift cake flour and cocoa powder twice and add into egg yolk mixture. Mix until just combined. Set aside.
4) In another bowl, whisk egg whites until foamy. Add in combined sugar and corn flour mixture gradually and continue whisking until stiff peak form.
5) Gently fold in the egg white into the egg yolk batter (in step 3) in 3 batches.
6) Pour the batter into an ungreased chiffon tin. Give the tin a few slight knocks on the tabletop to remove air bubbles. Bake in preheated oven at 170 deg C for 40 minutes (update on second attemp: lower to 160C for the last 10 mins).
7) Remove from oven and invert the tin immediately onto a cooling rack. Unmould the cake only when it is completely cool.

I have made a simple chocolate ganache to go with the chocolate chiffon and I would say that the combination is very good.

Chocolate Ganache
65g dairy whipping cream
65g dark couverture chocolate

1) Cook whipping cream over low heat till it starts to boil. Remove from heat.
2) Pour cream over to chocolate and gentle stir till all chocolate is melted.
3) Pour ganache over cooled cake and let it set. Decorate as desired. Chill the cake in the fridge before serving. Take out cake from the fridge 5-10 mins before serving.

Chiffon Cheesecake 芝士戚风蛋糕

Ingredients:

(A)
60g milk (I used UHT milk)
40g cream cheese
25g butter
(B)
65g flour (sifted)
(C)
4 egg yolks
(D)
4 egg whites
90g sugar (I cut down to 75g)
Pinch of salt
1/8 tsp cream of tartar

Method:
1) Cook (A) over double-boiler until well blended and thickens.
2) Remove from double-boiler. Add (B) and mix until smooth.

3) Add (C) and mix until well combined.
4) Whip the egg whites in (D) until foamy. Add the rest of the (D) ingredients in (D). Whip until stiff. Add it into the cheese mixture from step (3). Fold in by hand (use a rubber spatula) until well incorporated.
5) Pour it into a 9-inch chiffon pan. Do not grease the pan. Bake in preheated oven at 175C for 35 – 40 minutes. Remove it from the oven. Invert the pan and let it cool upside down.

Click here to know more about beating of egg white in step (4).

Notes:
1) I doubled the recipe as my chiffon pan was big and another reason was I wanted to finish the leftover cream cheese from making this cake. (I used all 90g).
2) The recipe does not mention if the cheese mixture in step (1) need to cool down before proceed to step (2) and (3). I didn’t let it cool down. I just placed the cheese mixture over a plate of water while doing step (2) and (3).
3) My cake started to crack after baking for about 20 minutes, I am not sure of the reason (anyone can advise me?) but I lowered the temperature to 160C and continued to bake. I baked for 40 minutes in total.

Tips:
1) Make sure the mixing bowl and utensil you use to beat egg white is free of oil, water or egg yolk. The presence of any would affect the final result.
2) Cream of tartar can be replaced by lemon juices.

Chocolate Roll


As I flip through 孟老师的美味蛋糕卷 I can’t resist the sight of the Chocolate roll she have made. This is using a chiffon cake base. Compared to the finger sponge base, I prefered the former, so soft!

Recipe adapted from 孟老师的美味蛋糕卷
Set (A)
20gm cocoa powder
40gm warm water
Set(B)
30gm egg yolks @ 3 nos of eggs
50gm sugar
50gm oil
30gm milk (I used chocolate milk)
75gm cake flour (I used 65gm plain flour + 10gm corn flour)
Set (C)
120gm egg white @ 3 nos of eggs
65gm sugar
Filling
180gm dairy cream
20gm fine sugar
Method
1) Melt coco powder with the warm water and set aside
2) Whisk egg yolks with sugar till sugar melt or turn pale. Add milk+oil and mix. Pour in (1) & stirred. Add flour and mix. Do not overmix.
3) Whisk Set (C) till stiff peak
4) Remove 1/3 of (3) and fold into (2)
5) Pour (4) into balance white and fold. Again do not overmix else it will deflat the white.
6) lined tray with baking paper and pour (5). Bang the tray (36x26cm) to release big bubble and baked in top heat 190c and bottom heat 160c for 12mins. ( I baked at 180c since my oven can’t adjust the heating element for 15mins)
7) removed from tray immediately and released the edges of the baking paper to allow the cake to cool.
8) Spread filling and roll. Keep refrigerated for about 30-60mins before slicing.
