So i’ve gone MIA for a while. Heehehee.. my bad, totally.

Truth be told, blogging doesn’t quite appeal to me anymore. But because there are some pretty awesome recipes that i need to ‘file’ it here, i blog. Sorry, not much styling these days too… It’s not that i have lost interest or whatsoever, it’s more like the balcony at the moment isn’t quite conducive to photograph food at the moment due to the current ongoing construction work nearby.

Anyway, i had some friends over twice last month for some makan-makan and this was part of the food i served during one of the sessions. The friends, particularly, Miss Tamchiak, loved my beef stew so much so that she declared it was the BEST beef stew she ever had, and mind you, this girl has been eating/sampling alot of food. Of course i was flattered. It did do something to the ego, y’know.. and i totally needed it then because cooking for the 3 little humans and the old man wasn’t exactly fun anymore. :P

Oh, by the way, Happy New Year!! Kinda late but better than never eh? ;)

I’ve got only 1 wish this year, that is to find a suitable unit ASAP. Hope that will happen in this term. Really keeping my fingers crossed!

As i have more leftover chestnut cream from the Chestnut Chiffon Cake, i knew i had to come up with something fast. One of the bakes that i fear baking is probably Swiss Roll Cake. I’ve not tried making it before but i was definitely curious to know how bad my rolling skill was. Heh.

Less than 24 hours later, Bamboo Charcoal Swiss Roll with Chestnut Cream i churned!

Coming up with this combi took me approximately 30 minutes, well probably. The criteria was… something to go swimmingly well with chestnut, the color must contrast beautifully.. and something that bff would go, Wow! :)

Bamboo Charcoal Swiss Roll with Chestnut Cream

Souffle Sponge

Egg Yolk 5
Egg White 4
Sugar 90g
Vanilla Extract 1 tsp

Cake flour 40g
Bamboo Charcoal 5g
Butter 40g (melted) ——–> i totally missed this one out!

Fresh Cream    150ml
Sugar               2tsp

Method

Chiffon Sponge

1. Line a 27cm x 27cm square pan with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 200C.

2. Chiffon Sponge : Whip Egg Yolk with 20g Sugar until a figure 8 can be ‘ribboned’ out without fading quickly into the mixture. Add Vanilla extract and mix well. In a separate clean bowl, whip egg white with 70g sugar until soft firm peaks are obtained. The meringue should still droop when the whip is inverted. (whipping the egg white too stiff will result in the sponge to rise excessively)

3. Chiffon Sponge : Pour Egg Yolk mixture into egg white and fold carefully to blend. Sift flour & Bamboo charcoal into the combined egg mixture. Fold carefully to ensure that flour is well combined. Pour in melted butter and fold to combine.

4. Pour batter into the lined square pan. Spread batter evenly. Bake cake in oven at 200C for 10 -12 mins.

5. After baking, remove cake from baking pan and leave to cool completely in parchment paper. Peel off parchment paper. The top face (brown side) will be creamed.

Cream Chantilly

1. Whip fresh cream with sugar until firm.

Spread whipped cream on to top face of sponge. Roll carefully to form swiss roll. Trip edges.

Yes, i totally missed out the butter!!! Lol! Not sure how i did, but i just did. No wonder i was like, EH? No fats for this swiss roll? Will it work!?!?! throughout. ^_^

Thankfully, it did! And we didn’t miss it one bit. grin — guess we can skip the fats next time eh? Anyway, bff loved it, or so she claimed, and she is no fan of this sorta light cake. Her kind of cake has to be buttery, heavy and rustic. But erm, i’ll take her word for it.. because methinks the cake was pretty amazing too, though the same cannot be said for this first-timer’s rolling + cream distribution. :P

I know my previous Hainanese Chicken Rice which i Guest Posted on Rasa Malaysia is rather intimidating. So many ingredients, so many steps, so time consuming. Not quite the kind of recipe we busy mummies are after eh? :)

So, guess what?

I have a cheat version!

See??

It’s one pot, easy peasy and definitely not lacking of ooompphhHH!

I mean.. check out the rice!

Each grain is uniformly coated and soaked in the chicken-broth-fats goodness. How bad can that be right? *wink*

+ It’s rather waistline-friendly donchathink? No chicken fats used, saved for that few tablespoons of olive oil. :)

When the lovely Corsage, mummy blogger at A Dollop Of Me invited me for guest post on her blog, i couldn’t turn her down. Well, i have no reasons to turn her down actually. HEEEE!

She’s a sweet friend, and her request is what i do everysingleday –  cook food. bake food. We went through quite a few of the recipes i have on hand (yup, i have at least 10 unblogged recipes all the time, haha!) and she picked the one she loves most. However, after much thoughts at the very last minute, i decided to post this recipe instead… more suitable for her readers in my humble opinion. :)

Corsage is quite a darling. She was so understanding when i had to pull out last minute as her first Guest Post-blogger because of my family emergency back in August. Then, when we met up 2 weeks ago, i suddenly remembered about this project of hers and viola!

So yes, for the recipe of this One Pot Chicken Rice, hop over to A Dollop Of Me NOW!

Hope you’ll enjoy reading her blog as much as i do. :)
