Lately I am so into baking Chiffon using the 烫面 method. Lol~ I simply fall in love with this method and so thankful that Angela asked me to try it at least once. The other day I tried using Happyflour method but I did some modifications. Today I am trying from Kitchen 70s, highly recommended by Angela and our Shifu - Lois.
Her method is also for Pandan Chiffon, but it is using oil, cake flour and corn flour, and it is heating up the coconut milk then add oil whereas Happy flour is heating up melted butter with coconut milk then add in cake flour. So I am doing a trial tonight to see which is better.. Hahah~
For me, I am using the Orangemaid Orange Pulpy drink as I am baking Orange Chiffon. I heat the juice with my microwave then add as per what the recipe says. Am also using RG's orange paste too.
Verdict: It is slightly more moist but less spongy. Feels a bit in between chiffon & jap cotton cake!
Our simple dinner tonight - Chicken & Ikan Billis Macaroni Soup and Tom Yam Macaroni Soup and that's the reason why I can have more time to bake!! Yeah!!
