Double Chocolate Cake (Gateau de Savoie du Chocolat)

Wow, this cake is really something. The texture is so light and airy like chiffon (only 25g flour), yet the taste is so intense and moist, it’s like eating soft crumbly chocolate itself. The cake is even more moist and rich the next day. The cake rose very high on the strength of the meringue…

Sweet Purple Potato Coconut Chiffon

The texture of this cake is soft, moist and spongy because of the high sweet potato content, which is really good at retaining moisture (even in breads). The coconut goes awfully well with the sweet potato and the baking aroma was amazing. There is some science to the lovely purple hue when I was researching…

Crown Chocolate Chiffon (cooked dough)

Hope you can see that this cake is shaped like a crown. It uses the Controlled Cracking for Chiffon technique which you can read more from the link. Also done using cooked dough which gives such a fine crumb. Original recipe from this amazing baker. Recipe (6″) 3 egg yolk 60g milk 50g cooking oil 50g cake…

Pandan Chiffon (cooked dough 烫面)

  This cooked dough method yields a soft luscious cake, that makes you feel like you are biting on air. The crumbs are delicate and fine, because the flour has been cooked by the heated oil and unable to form more gluten. If done correctly, it can be easier than the usual recipe because there…

Black Sesame Chiffon Cake

Recipe 4 egg yolks 35g caster sugar 60g oil 70g coconut milk 25g black sesame powder 1/4 tsp salt 75g top flour or cake flour 1/4 tsp baking powder 4…

Gula Melaka Chiffon

One of my family’s favourites. Have baked it so many times, I have memorised the recipe by heart. Just remember to get the right Gula Melaka or else don’t make it. A good Gula Melaka must be dark, and relatively soft enough to scrape and slice. If you see a light one and it turns…

Controlled Cracking for Chiffon

Tried something new the other day which I saw from a Taiwanese FB. The aim is to achieve a clean, patterned, crack top and the look would be so pleasant that there will be no need to overturn the cake when serving. The steps are simple and can be used on any chiffon, but a…

Chunky Peanut Butter Chiffon

When I read about this recipe in a book at the library, I quickly rounded up the kids and made our way home (grabbed a packet of cake flour otw). We are peanut butter fans and always have some at home. The author who is Japanese is big on making moist chiffons, as opposed to…

Pandan Chiffon Cake

Another great recipe from Kitchen Tigress, so grateful for her sharing. Some recipes leave you wondering what went wrong, but hers always comes with great explanation, so you can appreciate why you shouldn’t change things. In order to make this pcc, another must read is Dr Leslie Tay’s (ieatishoot) blog post, so much info to…

Lemon Chiffon Cake

Yes, lemon again. My whole family loves it, so I bake it. Try this recipe, it’s so light, it almost doesn’t feel like dessert. There’s no butter, no coconut cream and not too heavy on oil and sugar.
