Abnormal Sleeping Hours
Wednesday nite, I slept at 7:15pm , until 6am in the morning, almost 11 hours! ( in fact 6:55pm I already felt so sleepy! But I just make it to 7, at least not too bad! Ok, I know , my friends start yelling at me already, 7pm probably some people just about to start their dinner! Horrible horrible..
Normal Sleeping Hours
Thursday, I slept at 10pm. Ok Finally! A normal sleeping hour. I forced myself to sleep at 10am okay! Otherwise , again 7pm I feel like lying on bed again.
To kill the hours from 7 pm ~ 10pm, I practiced my CHIFFON CAKE again.
This is the 2nd time I baked the same chiffon. Ok, Don’t call it Chiffon . my cake has not reached to Chiffon texture yet! It’s from BUTTER to SPONGE…hopefully next is Chiffon!
That 2 pictures were my 1st batch of Orange Chiffon Cake. Taste like cotton. Mum eats it , eventhough it's failed. The texture still soft, but so dense! & short ! like my cake has pressed all the air OUT !
When my 1st Chiffon cake come out, my goodness, I felt thoroughly disappointed. Felt like given up ! my Chiffon Didn’t rise! Immediately I came out lots of “ WHYs” in my mind!
my OVEN?!!??!?!?! -> this is my major concern! Becuz if to buy a good one, cost like OMG…so I better practice the above five steps.
Orange Chiffon Cake (from Alice's page)
egg yolk 70g (estimated 4 nos)
orange juice 30g
grated orange peel
Baking powder 1/2 t
Egg white 150g (estimated 5 nos)
salt 1/4 t ( I replaced with cream of tartar)
Bake at 180 for 20 minutes, then reduced to 160C for 20-25 minutes.
(the contain of oil & water are greater, hence needs to bake slightly longer)
So this time, I make sure everything is alright. The recipe says, bake 20 minutes at 180C, then reduce to 160C at another 20 – 25 minutes. Ok I put my cake to the top level, because I choose my oven’s heat to come out from the Bottom. Any problem? ( U can choose bottom, top or heat from both side, but I choose heat from bottom only) My cake rose very very beautiful at the first 20 minutes. But when I turned to 160c for the next 20 minutes, it started to fall…..WHY? Anyone?” pls So when I took out my cake, the bottom part didn’t really rise well & a bit burnt. I did check b4 i took out the cake, it springs back, like how u pinch ur tight now! HAHA but this time the top part bit like cotton already, I mean like Sponge. But still not Chiffon ‘s texture! WHY WHY WHY ?
