Lucius 两岁生日蛋糕 Part 2:Roary The Racing Car Cake (Vanilla Chiffon with Blueberry Oreo Fillings)


Lucius基本上是个车痴,所以当爹地把Roary The Racing Car的卡通动画片介绍给他看时,他马上就着了迷。所以,除Barney外这是Lucius的第二个偶像。虽然妈咪不鼓励孩子看动画,但无可否认当孩子闹别扭时给他看他喜欢的动画确实是让他静下来的有效方法。

这个蛋糕做得很随性,就家里有什么就用什么。本来蛋糕体想做可可口味,但是家里的可可粉不够就换成香草口味。用Nielsen-Massey的pure vanilla extract来做戚风或海绵蛋糕我觉得特别香,如果用在重口味的蛋糕,例如牛油蛋糕或巧克力蛋糕我觉得香味就不明显。

选了《孟老师的美味蛋糕卷》里的食谱,做了一片12”x16”大的薄蛋糕,这个尺寸是我的41L老牙烤箱的顶限了。把蛋糕切半叠起刚好是edible image的尺寸。




The ingredients amount below is for 10”x14” or 12”x12” swiss roll pan, the amount in bracket is for my 12”x16” swiss roll pan with slight deduction of sugar.

Vanilla Chiffon with Blueberry Oreo Fillings


Vanilla Chiffon Cake
(Adapted from 《孟老师的美味蛋糕卷》)
80g (110g) egg yolks, room temperature
25g (30g) castor sugar
2 tbsp + 1 tsp (60ml) corn oil
2 tbsp + 1 tsp (60ml) milk
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
75g (100g) cake flour
160g (220g) egg whites
60g (75g) castor sugar

Blueberry Oreo Fillings
Whipped fresh cream (adequate)
Blueberry jam (to taste)
Some fresh/frozen blueberries
1 pack Oreo biscuit, remove the cream (reverse 10pcs individual biscuits and cut into half, crush the rest)
*Mix first 3 ingredients together

Whipped fresh cream (adequate) (see note)

1) In a large mixing bowl, whisk together (A) until combined. Sift in (B) and mix until smooth and well combined.
2) In another bowl, beat eggs whites starting with low speed. When the egg whites turn frothy, slowly add in the sugar and increase the speed to high and beat until egg whites are nearly stiff but still moist and not dry.
3) Fold one third of beaten egg whites with a balloon whisk into egg yolk mixture to lighten and mix well. Incorporate another one third of the whites. Lastly, add the rest of the egg whites and fold gently to obtain a smooth uniformly coloured foamy batter. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl with a spatula to ensure batter is well mixed.
4) Pour batter into lined swiss roll pan. Level the batter and bake in preheated oven for 8 - 12 minutes for 180C. Start checking for doneness at 8 mins. Cake is done when inserted toothpick comes out clean. Tear away the baking paper and allow sheet cake to cool on wire rack.
5) To assemble, cut the cake into half, spread fillings on top (avoid 1cm from the edges), add crushed Oreo biscuits, place another piece of cake on top, press down gently. Frost the whole cake with whipped fresh cream, pipe shells at the upper and lower edges and arrange Oreo biscuits at four sides.

The fresh cream used here is non-dairy whip topping cream from Phoon Huat (Redman brand). Just pour the cream and whip till stiff. For two birthday cakes I whipped 3 cups of cream (measured when it is still in liquid form) and still left about 1 cup of whipped cream.
