Vanilla Chiffon Cake with Fruits and Cream Round 2

The reason why I tried making this cake so soon after my last effort is because I wasn’t entirely pleased with my prior attempt and alright, I admit that it is also partially because we wanted to eat the cake again, lol. Here is a list of things I am not too wild about with […]

Vanilla Chiffon Cake with Fruits and Cream

A few weeks ago, a reader inquired if she could use my chiffon cake as the base for the ever-popular Chinese bakery birthday cake, one that is typically filled with fresh or canned fruits and whipped cream. My initial thought had been that it should be possible but if we bake the cake in a […]

Coffee Chiffon Cake

One of the best features of chiffon cakes is that they make a delightful afternoon (or anytime actually) snack and an elegant dessert at the same time. Here’s a simple but absolutely delicious coffee-flavored chiffon cake to usher in the new year. Enjoy! 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour 1-1/4 cups sugar, divided 1 tablespoon baking powder […]

Chocolate Chiffon Cake

Happy Friday! Chinese New Year (CNY) is next week and I am feeling kinda bluesy. I have to say this is the time when I miss my family the most. Anyway, still no CNY treats in sight and at this rate, it’s looking highly unlikely I would be having a CNY baking marathon especially since […]

Banana Chiffon Cake

I think we’ve discovered another family favorite today. :D I first saw a banana chiffon cake recipe a few years ago but I never did get around to trying it. Then recently, I came across another banana chiffon recipe, this time in Martha Stewart’s new cake book – Martha Stewart’s Cakes. It renewed my interest once again and I […]

Pandan Chiffon Cake Made With Homemade Pandan Paste

The ultimate test for the homemade pandan paste is of course, the Pandan Chiffon Cake. This cake with its light and tender texture, as well as its tall and regal state, in addition to its delicious, traditional pairing of pandan and coconut flavors is truly a Malaysian classic. Using homemade pandan paste to make this family favorite was a total […]

Strawberry Chiffon Cake

I’ve wanted to make a strawberry-flavored chiffon cake for forever. :D However, it was a tad tricky trying to figure out how to introduce the flavor without compromising the structure and texture of the cake. I was a little hesitant about using fresh strawberries with their high water content for exactly this reason. Not only that, I wanted to avoid using artificial flavorings and/or colors, which […]

Chiffon Cake with Strawberries and Cream

Happy Fall! Yikes! Have I really been away that long? My daily schedule has been pretty hectic this school year. Between Alex’s daily lessons, driving him back and forth to therapies, piano lesson, art lesson, and not to mention other general life responsibilities and commitments, I’m often exhausted and brain dead by the end of […]

Pandan Chiffon Cake Revisited

This is a childhood and now, a family favorite. For the longest time, I couldn’t find an acceptable substitute for fresh pandan leaves and I lived without this dessert for almost a decade. Finally, through another blogger, I discovered pandan paste but then for a while, I couldn’t find pandan paste where I live. It was only within the past couple of […]

Marble Chiffon Cake

Although I’ve learned to love all kinds of desserts over the years, my first love has always been a chiffon cake. I love its light, fluffy, and moist texture and the fact that it never, ever turns out too sweet. Craving a taste for one, I decided to make a personal favorite  – orange and chocolate chiffon cake. The orange part of the cake […]
