Ingredients

5 room temperature Eggs-separated, 17 gr Cornstarch100 gr Black sticky rice flour, 140 gr Sugar-finely grind75 ml Vegetable oil/Canola oil, 34 gr Flour, ½ tsp Salt1 tsp Baking powder, 100 ml thick Coconut milk

 

Instructions

Preheat oven to 180°C, turn oven fan mode on. Place oven rack in the lowest shelf (in the middle if the oven is rather small).Combine sticky rice flour, flour, corn starch, salt, 100 gr of sugar & baking powder & then sieve into a bowl. Make a well in the centre of the flour; pour in the coconut milk, egg yolks & oil. Using a whisk/spatula, stir the batter in one direction until it combine well & smooth. Set it aside.Beat egg whites with a mixer until foamy & soft peak form. Gradually add 40 gr of sugar; continue beating it until stiff peaks form. Using a spatula, gradually fold egg whites into flour batter in one direction, and then folding the remaining whites just until combined. Do not over mix the batter.Pour the batter into a 22 cm chiffon cake form (spring-form tube pan). Smooth the top. Bake for 10-15 minutes (until the cake rose & starts to crack). Turn off the oven fan & turn on the upper heat. Cover the cake form with aluminium foil. Bake for ~ 35 minutes. Insert a toothpick in the centre of cakes to check if it’s came out clean (means it’s cooked). If it’s not cooked yet, cover & bake again.Remove the cake form from the oven & turn the form upside down on a cooling/wire rack. You should elevate/suspend the pan tube over a flat cup bottom/bottle. Let the cake cool down to room temperature. Turn the cake form over. Run a blunt side of a knife, with one movement, between the sides of the cake & the pan. Remove cake from the form.
