  • Add ½ beaten egg white into egg yolk mixture, mix them with a whisk until they’re combined
  • Pour the mixture back to meringue bowl, use a spatula to mix them together with “fold method”
  • Pour and spread cake batter into chiffon cake pan. Use a chopstick and stir the batter several time to remove big air bubbles.
  • Bring the cake to bake in oven and bake at 170 Celsius degree in 45-50 minutes or until the cake rise, has golden brown color and some cracks on its surface
  • Remove the cake from oven, tap it several times (for leaking out the steam).

Remember to cool the cake completely before removing from pan. Remove chiffon from cake pan when it still hot may lead to collapse

  • When chiffon is completely chilled, remove it from pan and serve within a day.

You can serve chiffon by itself or combine with fresh fruits or syrup (they’re all good)
