Sweet Potato Fatt Koh



My first attempt in making a big fatt koh like this and in my opinion it is not smiling happily the ones i made previously were in small aluminum cups and they all smiled happily hmmm time to do some research online.. the orange sugar is a plus original recipe calls for brown sugar but i prefer orange sugar as it is more fragrant.. the end product is soft and fluffy not like the ones we bought from outside hard and floury =)

Jess, glad you liked the oiless pandan cake.
About the sides shrinking, I suspect you might have overbeaten the whites.
I have the prob when my stiffy peaks seem too short.

Kudos to you Jess with different bakes at one go & yields beautiful results! I can only do one type at one time & go bonchek after that.
But it sure sounds exciting lining up different bakes at one night.
Beautiful fatt koh. Huat ah!!! :)

wendy, now that you mentioned it i guess it must the overbeaten egg whites, thanks to your recipe though it has definitely yielded a soft and fluffy chiffon cake though my family complained that the pandan taste is too strong and overwhelming for them.

Jessie - thank you normally i also go bonchek after doing 1 type lol tat day i went crazy and then i fell aslp at 8pm yesterday i tink too much energy spent on making the cakes the night b4 lololol.

Pandan chiffon cakes are one of my top favourite cakes. I can eat many pieces without filling full. They are so light and soft. Love the sweet potato fatt koh, too...another favourite.
