Chocolate Chiffon Cake

Been meaning to update my blog bef our trip to KL.. hb has to go there for some meetings next week and we decided to spend the weekend there as well.. anyway i baked something for my concorde hotel kaki's .. not this chiffon cake tho but baked them chocolate chip cookies this time round...

So ok... i decided to bake chocolate chiffon cake yesterday simply cos Hairi loves to munch on chiffon cake... i knew i would not be able to see him this weekend since hes only gonna come home this afternoon and we would be long gone by then.. didnt wanna bake him the typical pandan flavor plus i was thinking of Lyn's son, Danish when i decided on chocolate flavor.. (took some to moms yesterday since Danish was there).. No doubt.. the taste, texture and surprisingly the moisture of this cake is something that i never thought it would be... I loveeeee it!! will definitely be baking this again and again..  

7 egg white
100g caster sugar
1/2 tsp cream of tartar

7 egg yolk
150g flour (i used cake flour)
50g cocoa powder (i used valrhona)
150g caster sugar
125 ml evaporated milk
100 ml corn oil
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda

- Preheat oven 160C
- Whisk egg white and cream of tartar till foamy.. add sugar in 3 parts till stiff peak.
- In another bowl, mix sifted flour, coco powder, baking powder and baking soda. Make a well in the middle and add egg yolk, evaporated milk and corn oil. Stir till well combined
- Add in 1/4 of egg white mixture into egg yolk mixture.. mix thoroughly.. add another half of egg white mixture and fold in gently. Pour in egg yolk mixture into the rest of egg white mixture and continue to fold in.. do not overmix..
- Pour batter into ungreased chiffon pan (24cm)
- Bake for 50mins
- Once done.. change the temp setting to 175C and continue to bake for another 10mins

Well ok i better get my butt going.. we will be leaving in half an hour time.. see u guys is KL.. cheers!

Hi rima
Been baking chiffon cakes a lot the last week! oh no. im addicted. Anyway, wanna ask you. My cakes crack quite a bit at the top. Do you know why? (So far tried, your pandan, chocolate & chocolate banana)

Rima said...

ur lucky u get to bake chiffon cake as often as u like.. my hb is not a big fan of any spongy cake.. especially chiffon cake so when i do bake em.. it has to be moist and not dry type.. anyway maybe what u can do is to use a slightly lower temp?? crack is normally cause by the heating element.. sometimes that happen to my cake.. 20mins into baking i usually will use aluminium foil to cover the top

Shaz said...

Haha my hubby doesn't even like cake! (though he said the sugee cake I made 2 days ago was not bad) my two boys love chiffon (Esp my younger who's 10mths and doesn't have much teeth) thanks for the tip.
Gonna try Swiss rolls next. :)

Hi, I was halfway through making this recipe when I realized that you didn't mentioned the 150g caster sugar in (B) I didn't add that in (B)... Do I need to add in B? Thank you :)

Tiara Fazlin said...
