Pandan Sponge Cupcakes

It has been awhile since I last baked with Pandan Leaves and Fresh Coconut Milk! Love these two combinations, it gives a real aromatic fragrance and pretty colours. 
I've used these two wonderful ingredients for a simple bake yesterday, a pretty green soft sponge cupcake recipe! Happy with the outcome...pretty colors, lovely smell all over my kitchen and super soft texture..^^  

Ingredients for 24 small cupcakes:

6 large egg yolks
20g fine sugar
100g fresh coconut milk
50g concentrated pandan juice (refer to Table for 2..or more for the step by step method)
100g low gluten flour
15g corn flour

6 large egg whites
70g fine sugar


~ Prepare paper cups on cupcake mould
~ Preheat oven at 180'C
~ Lightly whisk egg yolk and sugar with an egg whisk till bubble forms
~ Add in concentrated pandan juice and coconut milk. Blend well.
~ Add in flour and mix well.
~ Beat egg whites and sugar till a soft peak forms
~ Gently mix the meringue into the egg yolk batter until well blended.
~ Spoon into prepared paper cups and bake for 20 minutes at 180'C

The texture are really soft and its almost like a Pandan Chiffon Cake. Store these cutie greens in an airtight container and they can only be kept not more than 48 hours. The sponge may be too moist and sticky on top!

Hainanese Chicken Chop

Hainanese Chicken Chop is one of my favourite dish. I always ordered this when I visit the nearest restaurant here named Kluang Station. I've longed to try this out myself and finally I have the gut to make this 2 days ago. I've searched for this recipe on the web and I got the tips from here and there, then came out with my own version for frying the yummy chicken!

Like my version though, crispy chicken drumsticks even if you eat it by it's own!!

Here, have a look at the deep fried chicken I've done before I showered them with the yummy tomato sauce! Isn't they look crispy? And yet it's still juicy inside...*satisfied*
Wonder what ingredients I've used? Here it goes.....

Marinate the chicken drumsticks / chicken breast (with skin) with...
2 tbsps Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp corn flour
little black peper and salt to taste

*marinate at least 2 hours

When ready to deep fry....
~ beat up 1 egg and mix into the marinated chicken
~ Crush 10 soda biscuits (which u can get in any supermarket) into fine crumbs
~ Heat up enough cooking oil for fryin
~ Coat the chicken with the biscuits crumbs and deep fry till cook and turn golden
~ Drain well and place on your serving plate

*Then you'll get the crispy chicken shown above.

Tomato Sauce:
4 tbsps tomato sauce (any brand)
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp Oyster sauce
2 tbsps sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup water
a little cornstarch to thicken the sauce
1 onion (thinly sliced)
Some frozen mix vege / beans (thaw)

~ Heat up a little cooking oil and saute the onions and vege / beans
~ Add in all the other ingredients and bring to boil
