Christmas Chocolate Chiffon Cake

Wow, here comes Christmas again! I actually intended to organize an online gift-exchange party but it was too late. Maybe another time ok.

So here's a Christmas Chocolate Chiffon Cake in support of this month's Aspiring Bakers. Not sure if this can be considered creative, but hey, it's homemade and taste super soft and fluffy.

The excess batter is made into cupcakes.

The chocolate chiffon cake recipe is from Noms I Must and Sweets and Loves, both taken from Keiko Ishida's Okashi: sweet treats made with love.

Christmas Chocolate Chiffon Cake

Ingredients (makes one 20cm chiffon tin)

5 egg yolks
20g sugar
60g vegetable oil
70g water
50g cake flour
30g cocoa powder

5 egg whites
90g sugar
10g corn flour


1. Whisk egg yolks and sugar until the sugar dissolves.
2. Gradually add in vegetable oil, followed by water.
3. Sift cake flour and cocoa powder twice and add into egg yolk mixture. Mix until just combined. Set aside.
4. In another bowl, whisk egg whites until foamy. Add in combined sugar and corn flour mixture gradually and continue whisking until stiff peak form.
5. Gently fold in the egg white into the egg yolk batter (in step 3) in 3 batches.
6. Pour the batter into an ungreased chiffon tin. Give the tin a few slight knocks on the tabletop to remove air bubbles. Bake in preheated oven at 170 deg C for 40 minutes.
7. Remove from oven and invert the tin immediately onto a cooling rack.
8. Unmould the cake only when it is completely cool.

To decorate
Make Butter Ganache and spread onto the chiffon cake. Add on Christmas decorations.
