Coffee Chiffon Cake

Yup! Its a chiffon cake! Running out of ideas of what to eat for tomorrow's breakfast, then I just searched and digged whatever is left in the cupboard and fridge. Well, I can make a coffee chiffon instead..;) So here it is!

A recipe adapted from Kevin Chai - Chiffon Cake is Done, but i did some changes cause I don't have any Mocha Instant Coffee but just Nescafe. Anyway the coffee scent is not as strong as I expected, but the texture is super soft.

Egg Yolk Batter
2 tbsp instant coffee powder
60ml milk
4 egg yolks
40g caster sugar
40ml cooking oil
80g Self-raising flour
1/2 tsp baking powder

Egg White Foam
6 egg whites
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
80g caster sugar

~ Stir instant coffee powder with milk until melted. Combine with egg yolks, sugar and oil together.
~ Fold in flour and set aside.
~ Beat egg whites and cream of tartar until mixture is foamy. Add in sugar gradually and beat until stiff peak.
~ Gently fold beaten egg white into egg yolk batter until blended. (Divide into 3 times)
~ Pour into ungreased 8" mould and bake in a pre-heated oven for 35 mins or until cooked.
~ Invert cake to cool before removing.

The texture is really soft, fluffy and cottony. The next chiffon I'm going to bake is Orange flavour. Actually that's what my girl ordered..;p

  13. Hi Reese

    Unfortunately I have some sad news about Rosie from Baking Cakes Galore, Rosie passed away yesterday. I have written up a tribute to her on my blog and I am asking everyone who knew her if they would please take some time to leave a comment. I will be printing off all the comments to pass onto her husband.
