Cocoa Marble Chiffon Cake

Recently, I was in the mood to bake chiffon cakes. Inspiration continued from my last chiffon. I baked a pandan chiffon earlier but it didn't turn out well because my oven was too cold, which resulted my chiffon cake with a waist and a layer of starch was formed.


I shared with my transport mate the chestnut chiffon, and she was very kind to loan me her chiffon recipe book called: 戚风蛋糕零失败by曾美子. This recipe book is very interesting. It mixed egg whites with egg yolk batter and flour separately. The title of this book means "Chiffon cake zero failure" in direct translation whereas the English title for this book is Super Chiffon Cake.

As it is, the chiffon cake which I tried from this recipe was really soft and nice. However, when making this recipe, you need to use a lot of bowls. A bit troublesome though. It's interesting to learn another method of baking chiffon cakes. Try it and you'll know what I mean.

Note: I had overbeaten my egg whites, resulted in bigger holes.
