Rice Cooker Pandan Chiffon Cake

Appliance: Rice cooker with 'Cake' function

Ingredients A:
4 egg yolks
55g sugar
50g coconut milk
20g cooking oil
2 pandan leaves (screw pine)
1/8 tsp salt

90g top flour
1/2tsp double action baking powder

Ingredients B:
4 egg whites
20g fine sugar
1/8 tsp cream of tartar

1. Mix top flour and double action baking powder together using a hand whisk. Set aside.

2. Blend egg yolks, sugar, coconut milk, cooking oil, pandan leaf, and salt using a food processor. 

3. Pour the egg yolk mixture in (2) into a mixing bowl. Sift in the top flour and baking powder mixture in 3 additions. Mix well before each addition using a spatula. Set aside.

4. Apply a thin coat of oil to the inner pot of the rice cooker. Preheat the rice cooker pot by using the 'Quick' function. It takes about 5 minutes to heat up the pot. This will help to give the cake a golden outer crust.

5. Place egg whites in a clean mixing bowl. Use an electric mixer to whip the egg whites till frothy at high speed, about 1 minute.

6. Add the sugar and cream of tartar in three lots to the egg white, whip at low speed in between additions.
When the mixture is well mixed, start to whip the egg white at high speed, till stiff peaks formed. This takes about 2 minutes.

7. Scoop 1/3 of the whipped egg white to mix with the yolk mixture in (3) using a hand whisk. 

8. Pour the mixture in (7) to mix together with the rest of the egg white in (6). Mix well using a spatula. Mix with care so as not to break the air bubble trapped in the egg white. Stop mixing when no trace of egg white can be seen.
