Blueberry Chiffon Cake (2)

It is really too shocking and saddening to hear about the missing flight of Air Asia QZ 8501. I feel very sorry for the passengers onboard and their worried families. Hope there will be a miracle of their safety (however until now there is no latest report of the missing plane).


Ingredients  A:
6 egg yolks
30 g fine sugar
40 g sunflower oil
120 g  fresh blueberry - blend into puree
120 g plain flour.

Ingredients B:
6 egg white
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
50 g fine sugar

1) Combine ingredients A in a big mixing bowl. Use egg whisk to whisk till the mixture is smooth and thoroughly combined and set aside.

2)  In a clean, grease-free mixing bowl, beat egg whites for a  few seconds until frothy, add cream of tartar, then beat hard until softly-peaking.  Beat in the sugar, beat just until stiff, shiny peaks form.

3)  With a spatula gently fold the egg whites into the batter in a few batches, scraping the bottom and sides of the bowl, until just blended .  Pour into an ungreased 18 cm chiffon cake mould. Bake in preheated oven at 165 deg C for 40 - 45 mintes until cooked.

4)  Remove from the oven and up-side down immediately. Leave to cool completely.

5)   Use a thin plastic knife to run around the cake"s side . Slice the cake and serve.

X'mas tree look-alike-bread

Hello again!

I do not know if you dear readers have noticed that my blog posts have not been as frequent as before? 

That is because my latest addiction is in beads making! 

I picked up beads making from a friend who pulled me along to her lesson. The moment my fingers laid on the cute tiny beads, I loved them to bits. The same night, I found myself searching for beads making on google, youtube etc. The next few days and weeks saw me doing the same and even starting to try out to model a few myself - cute rabbit, chicken, squirrels. Whenever there was time on my hands such as after dinner and after shower, I would be fiddling with them and watching youtube videos. Haha you can say the interest and addiction for beads making are comparable to Candy Crush (guilty)!

Since X'mas is around the corner, I decided to make Christmas themed buns and at the same time make use of the opportunity to showcase two of my beads making products - Mr. Santa Claus along with a Xmas tree. Can you spot them in the photos above? :)


I would recommend you to use my Potato Bread or  Sweet milk bread   recipe to be the basic dough for this X'mas tree bread.  The texture of the bread is soft and puffy. And it can be eaten just by itself.
