Tokyo Lemon Chiffon Cake  from June class!

This lemon chiffon cake has a little bit of unique texture compared to my previous chiffon cakes. It has a hint of sour cream and adds freshness to the cake that goes well with sour lemon!

Here are some photos of the chiffon cakes I’ve baked in the class;

 

Kyoto Green Tea & White Chocolate Chiffon

 Caramel Banana Chiffon

Hokkaido Chiffon (Earl Grey Tea)

That means you have learnt Hokkaido, Kyoto and Tokyo style of chiffon cakes^^!

Chiffon cake is rather easy to bake cakes (only meringue part is difficult), so I hope you can bake them many times for your friends and family!

Cheers,

Caramel Banana Chiffon Cake & Cream Cheese Muffins*

4 Feb

DSC_0980

Caramel Banana Chiffon Cake class is starting this weekend~!

In the past I’ve done two kinds of chiffon cake in the class, Hokkaido Chiffon Cake with earl grey tea flavor and Green Tea Chiffon Cake with white chocolate. From its smooth and fluffy texture, chiffon cake is one of the popular cakes and I find that many of my students bake at home after the class. So I am glad to be introducing you another chiffon cake recipe in banana flavor this time!

DSC_0985

I focused on “moisture” during the testing… This moisture will last many days both in room temperature and chilled in the fridge. In Japan, chiffon cake is always served with whipped cream (mostly without any sugar). And this caramel banana chiffon cake will definitely go well with the caramelized nuts, too!

cream cheese mini muffin

Another recipe for this class is cream cheese mini muffins. We will make chocolate batter and make them into marble.

Here is the class schedule. I newly added weekday class on 26th February (Thursday), so if you are interested in joining (or prefer weekday class), please let me know! 

DATE:                 February 7th (Sat.) 11:00am-2:30pm -FULL 

                              February 15th (Sun.) 11:00am-2:30pm 

                              February 26th (Thurs.) 11:00am-2:30pm <– Newly added!

FEE:                       RM195.00 (RM149.00 for members)

*8 students maximum.

Kyoto Green Tea Chiffon Cake*

22 May

DSC_0909

Our new menu for June Basic Class will be Kyoto Green Tea Chiffon Cake & Rich Scone!

This vivid green color comes from the maccha green tea powder from Japan^^. (Will let you know where you can get them at the end of post.) I tried out various brand from other countries which is supposed to be a high-end product but Japanese maccha powder is by far the best… green tea comes from Japan, after all. So when you purchase green tea powder, make sure to check the origin of country ya!

We will spread white chocolate chip that goes well with green tea flavor.

DSC_0931

As chiffon cake is normally eaten with fresh cream, we will also make red bean cream and stuff it in the middle hole. We will use red bean also from Japan, Hokkaido.

DSC_0939

Another menu for this class will be Rich Scone. Why Rich scone? — Because we use a lot of cream in this recipe.

I just introduced Scones in Afternoon Tea Special Class, but since I received many requests on another type of scone, I decided to teach again next month. I didn’t know scone was so popular!

Here are the class schedule;

DATE:        June 1st (Sat.) 11:00am-2:30pm —> Full

                    June 12th (Wed.) 11:00am-2:30pm

                    June 30th (Sun.) 11:00am-2:30pm —> Full

FEE:            RM180 (RM139 for members)

To register for this class, please email me at caramelmoko@gmail.com

By the way, 1 U is having a Japan Fair right now until this weekend May 26th (Sunday), so if you are planning to join the class, please check out and get them when it’s easily available!!! I also got few packets from them (right side) – RM23.00 per 80g pack. It’s nice and reasonable.

Thank you and hope to see you soon!

Caramel Factory Chiffon Cake & Miroir Cookie * January Basic Class!

12 Jan

DSC_0002

January Basic Menu is Caramel Factory Hokkaido Chiffon Cake & Miroir Cookie!

Caramel Factory Hokkaido Chiffon Cake is a super moist earl grey tea chiffon cake with a hint of Japanese cream. Chiffon cake is quite common in Malaysia, but I believe the texture of this chiffon is slightly different from the Malaysian type, and is more fine and moist. We will bake this in 17cm chiffon cake mold, and once its cooled down (this process is quite important in making this cake!!!), will decorate with cream.

 

今月の基礎レッスンは、お紅茶のシフォンケーキとミロワールクッキーです!

お紅茶はもちろんアールグレイを使用し、しっとりと極上のシフォンケーキに仕上げます。コーティングには、日本から持って帰ってきた黒糖ベーストを隠し味に入れたシャンティを飾って。

DSC_0030

If you don’t have a special chiffon cake mold, you can bake this in a paper cup too, just like Hokkaido cake!

miroir2

Miroirs is a very unique French style cookie. Because its meringue based cookie and does not contain any flour, the texture is very light and easy to eat! We will coat them with almond chunks and sandwich gianduja chocolat, a hazelnuts praline taste of chocolate. It’s easy to make so you can bake a lot for this coming Chinese New Year!

ミロワールクッキーは、メレンゲベースの軽やかな食感が特徴のクッキーです。アーモンドをたっぷりとふりかけ、中にヘーゼルナッツの香ばしいジャンドゥージャのショコラをサンドします。 もうすぐ旧正月。 クッキーだけでもとても美味しい、贈り物にもお勧めの一品です!
