[recipes + videos] 5 Assorted Chiffon Cakes - Part IV

This is Part IV  (Part I, Part II and Part III ) of my chiffon cakes post and in each post there are five different flavour of chiffon cakes. On a count I think I have made more than 25 flavour and out of those Pandan Chiffon Cake is the only one which I often made at least once or twice in a month.

Since my family prefer cakes that are without cream or frosting my bakes often rotates between chiffon or pond cake. But once in a while upon request I would also bake muffin, chocolate brownie or cheesecake. There are two fruity chiffon cakes recipes in this post plus one of my favourite using gula melaka which I hope you can try on it.

[Recipe + Video] Cajun Seafood Parcel - 烤海鲜包裹

"Eat with your hands and don't be shy" is the slogan for today's post. Although I am not a huge seafood fans but I always wanted to find an opportunity to try boiled seafood in bag which is quite popular get-together dish in Singapore where you can enjoy with a group of friends. With that in mind, I replicate this Cajun Seafood Parcel by seasoning the ingredients with Cajun spices, wrap and bake until cooked.

We love the sauce underneath which was flavourful and pack with hint of sweet, spicy & buttery taste. Oh ya make sure you remember to toss the mixture with the sauce before serving to enhance the flavour.

[Recipe + Video] Blue Pea Flower Chiffon Cake - 蝶豆花戚风蛋糕

Hello everyone how's your weekend? Finally mid-year exam for the boy had ended last week and now I am back with my usual routines on trying out new recipes. Last week I baked the above chiffon cake using mixture of cake and rice flour together with blue pea flower water.

Initially I thought the cake will turn out to be either light blue or purplish colour but it ends up pale green which resemble matcha cake. Guess next round I have to intense the colour by adding more dried blue pea flowers while making the "blue water".
