Chapter 68: Experimenting Chiffon CakeTranslator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
After the tenth round of failing to bake his cake, Xu Le couldn’t help but apologize for his thought that baking desserts was easy.
He clenched his fists and seriously reviewed every detail, constantly improving them.
“Separate the egg white and yolk, add a few drops of lemon juice, and beat the egg white to the state of a small pointy hook.
During this time, add the white sugar in three small portions, and then pour in the corn starchâ€¦” Xu Le was precise to every gram.
He carefully followed the most traditional recipe and preheated the oven to 125 Â°C.
He filtered the powder into a glass basin without oil or sugar and mixed half the egg white paste and powder evenly.
The mixed flour paste was poured into the remaining half of the egg white paste.
He cut in from the middle, and picked up the bottom.
Then, he mixed everything in a J-shape motion until the egg white paste could not be seen.
This time, Xu Le had learned his lesson.
He made sure that the glass basin had no oil or water, and that the egg white paste had slightly uneven bubbles.
Then, he manually stirred it until the bubbles were even before mixing everything.
Then, he poured the paste into the mold and shook it twice.
After shaking out all the big bubbles on it, he carefully poked the small bubble with a toothpick to ensure that it would look good later.
Only then did he put the paste into the medium and lower layer of the oven for 50 minutes.
Only when he stuck the toothpick in and there was no watery paste did the cake being baked completely.
Finally, he succeeded on the 11th time.
He heaved a sigh of relief and raised the mold about 15 centimeters away from the table.
He slammed it twice, forcing the hot air out, and then turned it upside down to cool it down.
The chiffon cake had an extremely fluffy texture.
After eating it, the immense pleasure brought by the dessert instantly invaded his body and mind, sweeping away the gloominess from being unable to succeed earlier.
He opened his eyes.
Five minutes had passed.
Lu Yuxi and his sister had picked the ingredients and were walking towards him.
There were also two desserts.
He would enter the system to learn the other one after he sent the paste into the oven.
“Aiyo, why does it look like this after being baked?” The woman sitting next to him was about to cry from frustration.
She looked at the surface of chiffon cake, which was burnt and had caved in.
Some parts of the cake had directly cracked.
Obviously, it could not be eaten.

COM Her husband didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
He broke off a piece and stuffed it into his mouth.
Judging from his expression, he probably wanted to comfort her, but after eating it, he regretted it and couldn’t swallow it for a long time.
“Why don’t you read the recipe again?” “I’m not doing it anymore.
How can this thing work!” The woman was so angry that she threw the recipe on the ground.
However, after some time, she was unwilling to give up and tried again.
Lu Yuxi witnessed the situation just now.
She asked Xu Le doubtfully, “Are you sure it will work? I heard that the chiffon cake is quite difficult.
” “No problem.
” Xu Le took the eggs, low-strung flour, corn starch, fine sugar, and pure milk from her.
Then, he started seriously.
He was very focused when cooking and did not like to be disturbed.
Xu Tian also knew his habits and lowered her head to watch cartoons with Lu Yuxi.
When he beat the egg white the first time, he added a suitable amount of white sugar.
At this moment, the woman at the table beside him came over and said, “I’m afraid you’re not doing it right?” Xu Le frowned.
“It has nothing to do with you.
” “Aiyo, I’m reminding you out of goodwill.
What are you saying? Where are your parents?” When Lu Yuxi heard the commotion, she looked up at the woman and waved her hand to chase her away.
“Go and do your own things.
Don’t disturb other people.
” The woman slammed the table.
“What kind of attitude is this?” Xu Le was so annoyed that he stopped what he was doing.
He looked at the egg white on her table and said, “Pour it out and beat it again.
You have beaten the egg white too much, that’s why it will crack after it’s baked.
” The woman felt that she was being educated by a little child and felt embarrassed.
She glared at him and questioned, “What gives you the right to say thatâ€¦” Fortunately, her husband couldn’t stand it anymore and pulled her away.
“You can’t even do it yourself.
Why care about others? Do your own thing.
” Only then did it become quiet around Xu Le.
He took a deep breath and adjusted his condition.
According to the technique and ratio that he had practiced in the system, he finally managed to adjust the flour until it was mixed evenly.
He poured it into the mold and placed it into the preheated oven.
Xu Tian rested her chin on the side of the table and asked eagerly, “How much longer will it take to bake? Brother, I even took some chocolates.
I want to eat chocolate.
” “Yes, I’ll make for you.
” Xu Le closed his eyes.
Ten minutes later, he had learned how to make the tiramisu and the taro box from the system.
He poured a suitable amount of white sugar into the egg yolk and used a blender to beat it.
Then, he heated it using the double boiling method to kill off the bacteria.
Xu Le glanced at the cheese and said, “Not this.
Blue cheese is sour.
” As he spoke, he got up and went to choose another type of cheese.
250 kmascapen cheese was added in the beaten egg yolk.
He then added the egg white into the egg yolk three times and stirred it three times before setting it aside.
“5 grams of original coffee powder, 15 grams of rum, and moderate amounts of hot water.
” He read out the key points in the recipe and quickly dipped the finger biscuits into the coffee and wine, setting them down in the box.
He squeezed a layer of cheese and covered it with another layer of biscuits.
After filling the entire box, he used a knife to form a flat surface.
After the surface was smooth, he put it into the refrigerator.
Usually, the tiramisu needed to be placed for more than five hours, but the temperature of the refrigerator in the shop was adjusted to a freezing temperature, so it could be frozen in half an hour.
People beside him had noticed that a child had finished making two desserts smoothly.
Although theyhe did not know what the results of the baked goods were, their curiosity was piqued and many eyes were on him.
The last taro box was very simple.
There was no need to place it in the oven.
Xu Le planned to do it together with his sister.
“Tian Tian, can you put this steamed sweet potato and yam into the blender?” The pastry shop provided sliced taro-purple that had been steamed to softness.
All they had to do was put them in the blender and mix them with various ingredients.
“Alright!” Xu Tian stood up and clumsily placed the things inside.
Xu Le continued to instruct, “Now put the milk, the cream, and the sugar inside.
” Xu Tian did as she was told.
After adding the ingredients, Lu Yuxi helped to turn on the blender.
In the small bowl before her was corn starch, sugar and glutinous rice, which were used to make mochi.
Xu Le instructed Xu Tian to sieve the three powders after mixing them together.
Then, she had to mix the milk evenly and sift again three times.
This way, the taro paste would be smoother and would not form clumps.
After covering with plastic wrap and sticking a few holes in it with toothpick, it was ready for the steamer.
After Xu Tian was done, she felt a sense of accomplishment.
She looked up and smiled.
“Brother, how long do we need to steam this?” “It should be ready in 20 minutes at high heat.
” Xu Le looked at the clock on the wall.
It had been 50 minutes since the timer started.
The chiffon cake was almost ready.
