Pandan chiffon cake

Rating: 8 / 10

This is at least my 3rd attempt to make this cake. My earlier attempts were all disasters though they all tasted a lot better than they looked. This is the first time that my pandan chiffon cake is finally recognisable as such. Hallelujah!

After this I can tell you here and now that beating egg white is an entire science in itself ! Did you know there are no less than five stages in egg white beating? Phew!

Let me know if anyone wants the recipe.

    8. Put batter into a 20cm chiffon cake pan, bang the pan on a hard surface to release the bubbles and bake at 170C – 180C for 40 – 45 minutes or till cooked.

    9. When the cake is cooked, remove from oven immediately and give it another bang on a hard surface. Then invert the cake to cool. Remove the cake from the cake pan when it is completely cool.

    I just happen to have the mood to make chiffon cake today…. was so happy to see the result when the cake was in the oven, the volume was doubled. Had it baked accordingly till to the last stage of the cooling…. but to my dissapointment, when I took off the bottom part, there’s a big ‘crater’!!!

    My hubby was telling me, you jump for joy too soon….. 😦

    When I read of your (Lai Fong) attempts, then I’m motivated again… .. This was my first attempt, so will try again, with your recipe this time…. will post in the feedback….

    Hi Mei,

    If the crater is caused by a large trapped air bubble, then banging the tin hard a few times just before putting it in the oven will help to release large trapped air bubbles.

    One thing I still can’t figure out is how the skin on some chiffon cakes can be so smooth and nice. For me, as you can see, the skin always scrapes off somewhat no matter how careful I take the cake out of the tin.
