Gula Melaka Palm Sugar Chiffon Cake 椰糖戚风蛋糕 LTU #8

One of the chiffon cake flavor that I always wanted to try, finally! And used my favourite chiffon cake pan, a lovely gift from my baking buddy :D.

Recipe adapted from  戚风蛋糕出炉了 by Kevin Chai with modification.

Ingredients : (20cm heart shape cake pan)
5 egg yolk
120g cake flour
125 gula melaka palm sugar, chopped
85g coconut milk
50g coconut oil
1/4 tsp salt

5 egg white
1/2 tsp lemon juice or vinegar 
35g caster sugar

1. Prepare a chiffon cake pan, don’t need to grease or line paper.
2. Separate egg white and egg yolk into two mixing bowls.
3. Melt the chopped gula Melaka with coconut milk in a sauce pan with low heat, remove from heat to let it cool slightly. (I just waited for a few mins)
4. Add in coconut oil and salt to mix well, then add in egg yolks one by one and mix well.
5. Add in the sifted flour , whisk well until no lumps and set aside.
6. Beat egg whites and lemon juice till frothy. Gradually add in sugar and beat until approaching stiff peaks (meringue stand straight up with a little curve at the tip) or till stiff peaks (this stage is a bit difficult to fold with egg yolk mixture)
7. Take 1/3 of meringue and use a hand whisk to mix well with egg yolk batter.
8. Fold in 1/2 of meringue and use a silicone spatula, gently fold with egg yolk batter till slightly combined. Fold in the balance meringue and gently fold till well combined.
9. Pour the batter from a considerable height into cake pan, lightly shake it left and right to level the cake, then gently bang the cake pan on the table top to release air bubbles.
10. Bake at pre-heated oven at 130C at center rack for 25 mins and 160C for 15-20 mins. (I off the top heat element and on it back during the last 15-20 mins)
11. Remove the cake pan from oven, drop it from high side to prevent the cake shrink too much during cool process.

12. Turn the cake pan upside down and cool completely before remove from the cake pan. 

The cake is soft and fluffy with nice fragrance of gula melaka, yummy! Although I had over baked the cake slightly as the top of the cake almost char but it didn't affect the cake.
