I have read the fact that when one has migraine, another option to ease the pain is to have some intake of caffeine to ease down the pain. Last night itself, right after the dinner, I took two tablets of paracetamol which has some caffeine in it, oh my, the whole night I was tossing and turning, I can't sleep.... grrrr..... till 3am!!
Coffee has caffeine in it so what could be better to bake some cakes with coffee it it, right?
Hazelnut Coffee Chiffon CakeIngredients:
6 egg yolks
2 tubes (80g) of 3in1 Hazelnut Coffee Mix
100g corn oil
100g self raising flour
6 egg whites
80g caster sugar (as I cut down the sugar to 80g, I feel the cake is a little bland)
1/4tsp cream of tartar
In a small bowl, mix the Hazelnut Coffee Mix together with the milk until the mixtures dissolves well combined. Set aside.
In another bowl, light beat the egg yolks, then add in the corn oil and whisk till all well combined.
Add the Hazelnut coffee milk mixture into the yolks/oil mixture. Mix till all well blended.
With hand whisk, add in the flour and mix till all combined well. (Do not overmix).
Meanwhile, in another bowl, beat egg whites with medium speed till frothy, add in cream of tartar. Continue to beat until the bubbles become fine soft peak, gradually add in caster sugar and continue to beat until stiff peak.
Gently fold 1／3 of beaten egg white into egg yolk batter, use cut and fold method until well blended. Then pour the batter back to the rest of the egg white and fold until mixture is well blended.
Bake in pre-heated oven on lower rack，150c for 35mins.
Remove from oven, invert cake onto table until completely cooled.
