Hakkaido Chiffon Cupcake 北海道牛奶蛋糕

The recipe is ordinary but yields an extraordinary cupcake.  The texture is so cottony soft and silky and you won’t stop at one cuppie.   I baked these yesterday evening for our breakfast this morning, and also brought some to share with my colleagues.  Everyone gave good comments.  I will definitely bake this again.

  1. Hi! Just a quick question- your ingredients list specify 20g sugar AND 35g caster sugar, but no corn oil is listed, while instructions mentioned mixing corn oil, I assume one of those sugars is supposed to be corn oil? Could you please let us know how much is the corn oil? Thanks! Btw love your almond chiffon cake recipe- it’s my go to recipe for chiffon cakes!
