Pandan Ogura

Recipe:- Pan size: 7″ square or 8″ round ~

Line bottom and lightly grease the sides of pan

Ingredient A:

30g Coconut oil
30g Corn oil
5 Egg yolks
1 whole egg (I used 65g eggs)
70g Cake flour/superfine
70g pandan juice
1/4 tsp salt

Ingredient B:

5 Egg white
80g Castor sugar
1/4 tsp Cream of Tartar

IMG_9317METHOD:
1. In a large mixing bowl, hand whisk egg yolks, oil, pandan juice, whole egg until well combined then sift in the flour and mix until smooth. Cover n Set aside.
2. In another clean dry bowl(make sure it’s oil free too!) use an electric whisk (or stand mixer if you have one) whisk the egg white until foamy before adding cream of tartar. Continue whisking until thick foams before slowly adding sugar and continue whisking until stiff peaks form or if you can be gentle, just until firm peaks form and meringue is glossy.
3. Fold meringue into egg yolks batter gently, 1/3 portion at a time until you get a nice creamy batter that can be poured into your cake pan easily. You can use a handwhisk to fold in the meringue and at the end, switch to a spatula to scrap the bottom of the batter and fold up gently to ensure even mixing of the meringue into yolk batter.
4. Gently shake the pan from side to side to even out the batter before baking in a water bath for 90 minutes at 160C. Please take note that temperature is only indicative here. Tent with foil if the top gets too brown.

Pandan Cheese Sponge Cake

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

IMG_3098.jpgPandan Cheese Sponge Cake

Ingredients:
(makes one 8″ cake)

125g cream cheese, cut into cubes
60g unsalted butter, cut into cubes
5 egg yolks (Grade A)
125g Pandan Juice  + Milk – blend pandan leaves with some water, squeeze out the juice and top up with milk
1/2 tsp salt
75g cake flour
35g corn flour

5 egg whites
120g caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice or 1/4 tsp cream of tartar

img_3107Method:
1. Line the base and sides of a 8″ round cake pan(fixed base) with parchment paper. For the sides, make sure the parchment paper extends higher than the cake pan by about 1.5 inches as the cake will expand and rise above the rim of the pan, set aside.
2. Sieve together cake flour and corn flour. Set aside.
3. Melt cream cheese and butter in a double boiler, stirring until mixture is lump free. Remove from heat and add the pandan mixture. Stir well to combine.
4. Add the egg yolks one at a time, and with a balloon whisk, whisk to combine.
5. Sieve over the flour mixture, whisk to combine. Small lumps may form once the flour is added, whisk the batter gently till there are no lumps, do not over mix.
6. In a clean, dry mixing bowl, beat egg whites and lemon juice with an electric mixer on low speed until mixture becomes frothy and foamy. Add half of the sugar and turn to medium-high speed and beat the mixture. Continue to add in the remaining sugar mixture in separate additions and beat until the egg whites reaches the firm peaks.
7. Add the beaten egg whites to the cream cheese mixture in 3 separate additions, each time fold with a rubber spatula (I prefer to use a balloon whisk until towards the end before switching to spatula) until well blended.  .
8. Pour batter into the prepared cake pan. (I pour it from a height slowly to help remove big air bubbles.). Tap the pan lightly on a table top to level up the batter and also to further remove air bubbles. Mix some green colouring into a tablespoon of batter and drop small dots on the  top then use a skewer to slice through to create the love design.
9. Place cake pan in a baking tray. Fill the baking tray with hot water (the water should rise up to about 1 inch of the cake pan).
11. Bake on lower rack of the oven for 80 minutes at 180 degC.

Personal note:  Elba oven 80 minutes at 160C.

Pandan swissroll with coconut/caramel

Pandan Swissroll with coconut/caramel filling

(cooked dough method)

Ingredients:

5 Egg yolks
50g coconut oil or any vegetable oil
20g sugar
75g fresh pandan juice
80g Cake flour

5 Egg whites
10g corn starch
60g Castor Sugar

Method:

Heat up the oil until warm, add the cake flour and cooked into a dough and allow to cool slightly before whisking in the yolks. Add the pandan juice and 20g sugar and mix until smooth. Set aside.

Mix corn starch with sugar. Beat the egg whites till foamy, add in the sugar mixture gradually and beat till firm peaks.

Fold the meringue into the yolk batter in 3 batches then pour into prepared pan (I used 11 x 11″ pan); smooth out the top by shaking the pan from side to side. Bake in preheated oven at 160C for 30-35 mins or until golden brown.

Transfer the cake to cooling rack and invert on a plastic board lined with a clean piece of parchment paper. Peel off paper lining and gently roll the cake up together with the clean parchment paper. Leave it to cool before unrolling and apply filling, then re-roll back again.

For the filling, mix coconut with caramel and spread on the cake. Pipe on a layer of whipped cream and roll up. Chill a couple of hours before slicing and serve.
