Aunty,

Can replace egg yoke with more non-diary whipping cream as my family do not like the smell of egg yoke in the ice-cream? May I know what is the quantity if replace by more whipping cream.

Thank you.

yochana said...

Yes dophina , you can omit the egg yolks. No need replacement.

Hi Lucy, Need your advise pertaining to chiffon cake. I have been baking chiffon cakes using only the bottom heat of my oven (my oven has top, top and bottom and bottom feature)and I always leave it on the 2nd shelf from the bottom. The cake rose very well. I noticed from many chiffon cake recipes that mentioned baking at normal heat which is top and bottom. Could you kindly advise me what difference does that make i.e. using bottom heat versus top and bottom. Christina

Aunty Yochana,

I was eager to try yr recipe coz I've bought whipping cream long time ago & it'll expire very soon. Unfortunately black spots appeared when the mixture of cream & yolk brought back on the stove. Apparently the mixture wasn't carefully mixed & some of it was burnt. No wonder it had burnt smell.
I should be more careful the next time I try yr recipe again, Aunty.

Thanks for sharing the recipe.
I check yr blog everyday & I'm always amazed by yr creative work.
You're truly talented, Aunty !

hi cristine,

Thanks for browsing at my blog. When you stir your yolks with milk over the stove, make sure you stir vigorously and not too hot...if it's burnt ..try sieving it.

Hi Christina,

Normally for chiffon cake, you need to use top and bottom heat because you need an even temperature from top to bottom to bake the cake. If the heat is just from the bottom, it's harder to cook the chiffon cake and thus you'll take longer to bake the cake resulting a drier cake. You can also use the bottom heat but my preference is top and bottom heat together. I normally bake at the 3rd rack for fear of getting burnt chiffon cake at the top. The cake normally rise very high resulting in a dark coloured skin on top.

Lucy, Welcome back. I see you really had a good time in Chiangmai. So many goodies to whet your appetite. Thanks for your advise. Will try top and bottom heat next time I bake.

Thanks for yr advise, Aunty.

Stef said...

Aunty Lucy,looking forward to your creations!

Cristine,if in future you are not confident,try making your base or any sort of custard in a double boiler...guaranteed will not burn.

yochana said...

Yes Yes Stef,

Why din I think of the double-boiler method.

yes christine...use double boiler otherwise your ice-cream will have a burnt smell.

Dear Auntie Yochana,

Thank you for your wonderful recipes. I would like to make a rum-and-raisin ice cream cake for my husband's birthday in Feb. Do you have a recipe for rum and raisin ice cream to share, please? What type of cake should I use for the ice cream cake? Looking forward to hearing your great advice. Many thanks.

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Ece,

The recipes calls for 1 1/2 cups.

1 1/2 cups = 375 gm. so your 200 gm. is wrong.

Hi Aunty Yochana,

I tried making the ice cream yesterday.. had a couple of questions as it's my first time trying to make one :

1) whisk egg yolk & sugar till smooth
-- I use the m/c to whisk till pale yellow and smooth, is it correct ?

2) When i returned the egg and milk mixture into the pot and put on medium heat, i stirred vigoriously.. the mixture boiled but it didn't thicken ? what went wrong ? I didn't use double boiler, i just put it directly on stove.

3) is it because the mixture didn't thicken, therefore i can't seem to whip up using kw to whisk ? the mixture still remain watery. pls advise what may have gone wrong

thanks.

cheers,
irene
