All My Loves

Just to be like the sun


Yesterday did have some time after last few days glue on to korean drama and long time did not do chiffon cakes, time for practise.

Take out the chiffon book that I bought last year and start flipping, saw yoghurt cranberry chiffon and it so happens that I have the ingredients, defrost the eggs, catch up korean drama, finished one episode and there's go starting on the chiffon cake.

Study the recipe in the book and noticed that the recipe is for 17cm and 20cm, now in dilemma, I have 25cm, whether to double the 17cm or do the 20cm by 1.5 times.
Tried to consult my friend, so happen she was inside the cinema. Well! made up my mind, double the recipe for 17cm. Luckily it's turns up fine... Heng Ah!

After baking, I realised that the recipe for this cake got no baking powder and cream of tarter... hmmm... well! it's good lor! no extra chemical....

Bring the whole chiffon cake this morning to office, my collegues says it's nice, texcture is soft.moist and not so sweet, but I feel that if I have added some lemon zest inside, it would be better in flavour, Overall, I liked the cake.

Below is the recipe from the book
