Bluepea Coconut Sponge Cake

Ingredients:

6 large egg yolks
70g oil
70g Bluepea flower juice (cook a bunch of flowers with water and reduce to 70g-you need a lot of flowers to get the deep blue of this cake)
20g coconut milk
95g self raising flour
1/4 tsp salt

6 egg whites
90g sugar
1/4 tsp cream of tartar

Method:

1. Line the bottom an 8″ round pan. Grease the sides for easier unmoulding. Preheat oven to 160C.
2. Sift flour and salt together.
3. Beat egg yolks, oil, salt, coconut milk and the bluepea juice together until combined.
4. Stir in the flour until smooth. Set aside.
5. Beat egg whites until frothy before adding cream of tartar. Continue beating while gradually adding the sugar. Beat till firm peaks but not stiff.
6. Mix 1/3 of meringue with yolk batter with a hand whisk. Add another 1/3 portion and fold gently with the whisk. Then pour in balance of meringue. Fold gently using a spatula until no more streaks of meringue can be seen.
7. Pour batter into prepared pan and tap pan lightly to remove air bubbles.
8. Bake with a water bath at 160C for 80-90 minutes or until cooked. (Time and temperature is indicative only)
9. Remove from oven, wait until cake has pulled away from the sides before inverting on to a smooth non stick pan. Remove paper lining and re-invert on to a rack.
10. Place cake in the oven (do not turn it on) to dry, using the remaining heat, if the cake is still damp.

5 egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla extract
70g Corn oil
100g coconut milk

6 egg whites
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
100g caster sugar

Few drops of blueberry paste
1 tsp peppermint paste and 2 drops of green food colouring

Variation: If you do not wish to use coconut milk, switch to full cream milk and replace corn oil with cold pressed coconut oil.

Of course you can match your own flavorings to create different colours:D

Method:-

1. Sift both flours, baking powder and salt together. Set aside.
2. Mix egg yolks together with vanilla extract, oil and coconut milk until well blended. Sift in flour mixture and mix until combined.
3. Beat egg whites until frothy, add in cream of tartar and beat until soft peaks form. Gradually add in sugar and beat to firm peaks.
4. Lighten the batter with 1/3 portion of the meringue using a hand whisk. Then add another 1/3 portion of the meringue and gently fold. Repeat with the remaining portion until fully incorporated.
5. Divide the batter into 3 portions. Add blueberry paste into one portion of the batter. Add Peppermint and coloring into the second portion and fold gently to combine. Leave the third portion plain.
6. Drop dollops of each portion of batter randomly into an 8″ tube pan until complete.
Bang the cake pan on the kitchen bench to remove large air bubbles. Then, use a chopstick to swirl through the batter to create a marble effect.
Bake the cake at 160C for 70-80 minutes  or until cake is done. After removing cake from the oven and immediately invert to cool completely before unmoulding.
