Raisin Scone & Pandan Chiffon Cake

Woke up 1 sunday morning, felt like baking something quick for our breakfast so thought of making scone for the 1st time (Alex Goh recipe). it turn out to be soft, fluffy & yummy to go with blueberry jam.

Baking a successfull pandan chiffon cake is always in my mind. especially after tasted Yin Yin's yummy version so I used her recipe with 1 extra egg white left over from making buns. I am so happy that it really turn out great in terms of texture & taste. Her receipe is really the best that i ever tried.

Blueberry Jam Swiss Roll

I have been wanting to try baking swiss roll again since last 1 mth but just didnt manage to do it beacuse i wanted to get a proper 11" swiss roll tray. Till today still haven't get it from Phoon Huat so i just use the biggest tray i have at home.

Since Evan went shopping last evening at Toys "R" Us at Tampines Mall with the grandparents so i got the luxury time to enjoy my baking since i reach home early.

I tried the receipt from 君之 http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_4a5089ff0100ib0b.html and substitute the floss with blurberry jam & add in some dried cranberries & blueberries for the base.

- holes at the bottom because i forgot to bang a few times before going into oven;
- texture was fine & soft;
- taste wise i find it too eggy... so maybe next time can reduce 1 egg yolk;
- because i use the rectangular tray & rolling started from the length so it became a bit too short for a nice roll... hehe because i am too greedy, wanted to cut into more pieces

I am happy that Evan enjoy this swiss roll. He had 1.5 piece last nite & 3/4 piece again this morning :) Hope my colleagues like it as well.
