Oreo & Choc Chiffon Cake

This biscuit-mixed chiffon cake is light and luscious. A handful of chocolate chips was added to enhance the flavour.  Specially baked for my girl, Bebe, who requested for an oreo cake but not knowing that she was actually asking for a oreo cheesecake.

Source : Table for 2 and Cherry Potato ‘Oreo Chiffon Cake’.  I added chocolate chips which is not called for in the original recipe.

Makes one 8″ tube pan

Ingredients

65g oreo biscuits, lightly pulverized together with cream ( I use the back of the spoon to crush them )

5 egg yolks

50g sugar

60g milk

60g corn oil ( I used olive oil )

100g cake flour, sifted

5 egg whites

1/2 tsp cream of tartar or 1 tsp lemon or lime juice ( I used lemon juice )

60g sugar

some chocolate chips, to sprinkle

Method

1. Preheat oven at 160 degrees C.

2. Mix yolks,  sugar, milk, oil and sifted flour together.  Using a hand whisk to combine well.

3. Beat egg whites until frothy, add in cream of tartar or lemon/lime juice and beat until soft peak.  Put in sugar gradually and beat until stiff.

4. Fold in 1/3 of the egg whites into egg yolk mixture, and fold in the remaining egg whites gently.  Add in crushed oreo biscuits and fold in gently to combine well.

5. Pour into an ungreased tube pan and sprinkle the top with chocolate chips.

  1. hey, what do you mean when you mentioned about pulverize the oreo bicsuits with cream? What cream is this? thks.

  2. I tried the cake and it came out quite well – but i made one BIG mistake. I usually leave chiffon cakes in room tempreature, in a sealed box for up to 3 days. Since it has no butter it usually lasts well. But this one went bad by the second day. I had not accounted for the oreo cream, and i has to throw out the whole cake! 😦 i didnt even get to taste it since i was saving it for an occasion!
