Recipe's Preparation

1.

Preheat oven to 160 - 170 degrees

HERE IS THE TRICK FOR GETTING GOOD STRONG  EGG WHITES PEAKS ........

PLACE THERMOMIX BOWL IN FREEZER BEFORE WHISKING EGG WHITE (ABOUT 10 MINUTES)

USE EGGS STRAIGHT FROM THE FRIDGE. DO NOT BRING TO ROOM TEMP.

PLEASE TRY THIS METHOD AND LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK? I THINK IT IS BETTER THATN HEATING THE EGG WHITES.

 

PART A
1) Whisk on speed 4 for 5-7 mins (with the butterfly inand MC off )egg whites until egg whites are quite firm or have formed soft peaks
2) Weigh out 130gm caster sugar and tsp cream of tartar on the thermobowl lid with the MC ON - set timer to 1.5 mins and set dial to speed 3 - take MC off and slowly add in caster sugar bit by bit from the thermobowl lid through the hole until all has been including in egg whites
3) At this stage egg whites should be quite solid - scrape as much egg white from thermobowl and put in decent sized mixing bowl - place into fridge until needed. ( i put into a stainless steel mixing bowl so its colder)

PART B
1) Mix the egg yolks and coconut cream with butterfly in at speed 3 for 30 seconds
2) Using speed 2-3 add in oil and slowly add in self raising flour from as high as possible ( I took off my lid and just put the 120gm in from a high distance) 
3) Scrap down bowl and add in the pandan essence and then set dial to speed 3-4 for 10 seconds or until mixture looks ready.

PART C
1) Take PART A out of the fridge (egg whites should still be firm) and slowly add 1/3 of Part B (into the middle) using a hand whisk gently and slowly mix/fold in the two mixtures and ensure evenly mixed in (Part B is the heavier component so try to make sure the bottom is mixed well) (the reason for gentle mix and slow is to ensure air remains in the mix.
2) Continue to add in Part B into Part A one third at a time until all of Part B has been mixed into Part A. (remember to make sure the bottom has been also stirred)
3) Pour into Chiffon cake tin
4) Use spatula to smear the edges of the chiffon tin that doesn't have mixture not all the way to the top but maybe a pinky's worth or a bit less (see dodgy picture below) By doing this it allows mixture to climb while being baked.

Place in oven for 45 mins

Immediately take cake out of oven and invert the tin onto a bowl - this stops the cake from shrinking down - if you take it and dont invert it - it may sink due to the change in temperature

To add an Aussie touch, when cooled, cut into three slices layer with whipped cream and berry coulis (EDC) decorate with strawberries and drizle with chocolate  sauce (EDC)

 

Thanks to Carina Wong for sharing her recipe with me and helping with all the tweaks. i think we've done a good job Carina.

Invert tin on upturned ramekin or similar

VERY IMPORTANT TO BUY YOURSELF A CHIFFON TIN FROM AN ASIAN SUPERMARKET. THIS ONE ONLY COST ME $11. IT JUST WONT RISE PROPERLY OTHERWISE.

Sorry for the late reply Pusskin, thank you so much for the feedback and it was interesting that you had success with the "cold" method too. I'm doing all my egg whites this way nowadays and it works a treat Smile Glad you liked the "aussie " touch Big smile

Hi there CathyM,

Thanks for the tip about keeping the egg whites and bowl cold. I live in Far North Qld where it can get very humid and need everything in my power to keep a chiffon cake high. 

I tested the time honored method of beating egg white on 50C and just beating it cold, and I think, but can't exactly, scientifically say for sure, that your cold method might be superior. I judged this by the amount of mixture in the cake tin (used same tin as with egg white on heat) - it was quite a bit higher!  Big smile

The proof, as they say,is in the eating. Your recipe is now baking in the oven (small drama when I realised somehow the pre-heating had died on me! But hoping it will be ok) and as soon as I have the pics, I'll post.

Will be doing the Aussie version on the weekend for Sunday dinner - we all LOVE pandan cake - even my very Pommie in-laws!

 

Hi langshipley,

MC = Measuring Cup

The small little plastic Measuring Cup that sits in the top of your mixing bowl lid Smile

We sometimes use this as a unit of measurement in our recipes. Hope that helps Smile
