My 94 year-old granny was unwell recently and hospitalised for the past 2 weeks. Those who know me personally, will know that I am very close to her as she has looked after me when I was a baby till my teenage days. It saddened me to see her so miserable as she doesn't like to stay in the hospital. She has kept her lips tightly closed and refused the oral medications and hospital food and had to be put on a drip. The doctor thought that she has difficulty in eating and swallowing and wanted to insert a feeding tube which we were against.
To proof to the doctor that my granny can actually eat, I've baked this pandan chiffon cake using extra virgin coconut oil (see below for the health benefits) and at the same time, I experimented with some bread flour. The result was amazingly good and I was surprised that the texture is so fine, smooth and cottony!
I brought this cake to the hospital and my granny finally opened her mouth to eat as I fed her. The doctor and nurses were really amazed as they saw her chewing the cake happily away! I have shared this cake with the doctors, nurses and patients and all gave big thumbs up and commented that the cake is so delicious!
Thank God that my granny is finally discharged from the hospital and I've baked this family's favourite Gula Melaka Yoga cotton cake, also using extra virgin coconut oil, to welcome her home and cheer her up. Am really happy to see her eating well again. :)
