Since my participation in Aspiring Bakers ‘Fruity March’ hosted by Jess of Bakericious and ‘Say Cheese’ hosted by Jean of Need More Noms, I am again submitting another entry to say hi to Doris of Tested and Tasted for this month’s theme ‘Chocolate Delight’.
I like this chiffon cake. The light, velvety, moist and a little melt-in-the mouth texture is so delizioso (delicious in Italian).
Am submitting this post to Aspiring Bakers #7 – Chocolate Delight (May 2011) hosted by DG from Tested and Tasted.
This recipe is adapted from All That Matters through Small Small Baker.
4 egg yolks
40g castor sugar
1/4 tsp salt
40g corn oil
140g Warmed Fresh Milk
25g Cocoa Powder ( I use valrhona cocoa powder )
120g Cake flour
1/2 tbsp Baking powder
1/8 tsp Baking Soda
4 egg whites
50g castor sugar
1/2 tsp Cream of Tartar
80g Chocolate Chips
1. In a bowl, using hand whisk, whisk yolks and sugar till sugar dissolves.
2. Add oil and salt, whisk and add chocolate milk. Stir well.
3. Fold in sifted flour and mix well.
( I mix A, B & C together in a bowl until well combine )
4. In another bowl, using an electric mixer, beat till the whites are frothy. Add in Cream of Tartar and beat till soft peaks.
5. Add in sugar gradually and beat till stiff peaks.
6. Fold in 1/3 of the whites into the yolk mixture using a rubber spatula till incorporated.
7. Pour the mixture and add chocolate chips to the remaining egg whites and fold in gently till incorporated.
8. Pour the batter into a 21cm chiffon tube pan. Bang the pan on the table to get rid of bubbles.
9. Oil a piece of aluminium foil and cover the pan loosely. Bake at 180 deg.C for 10mins.
10. Turn down the temperature to 170 deg.C and bake for 20mins.
11. Insert a skewer to check if cake is done. Remove the foil and reduce the temperature to 160 deg.C and bake for a further 5 to 10mins to brown the surface.
( I extended the baking time for another 20 mins and bake at 180 deg C for 10 mins and 170 deg C for 10 mins )
12. Remove from the oven and invert the pan. Remove the cake from pan when it’s completely cooled.
