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 […]

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 […]

Orange Chiffon Cake and Blackberry Sauce

With Valentine’s Day coming up, I figured I’ll take a little break from all the CNY treats to post this recipe which I made over Christmas and again in January for a birthday party. The fresh flavors were a welcome change to all the chocolate desserts during the holiday season…so, if you’re looking for something not […]

Pandan Chiffon Cake

Pandan Chiffon Cake used to be my all-time favorite dessert growing up. I love the fragrant yet oh so subtle pairing of pandan and coconut, and the light-as-air texture with just the right amount of sweetness. Although I’m not as crazy about it as I used to be (due to an increased appreciation of other desserts), I […]
