Moist Chocolate Chiffon Cake

 
Finally back to work, the 3 days leaves were very fruitful, spent all of times with my children, tired but happy lol. Just told my colleagues that I dun feel like coming back to work, nearly wanted to quit and stay at home :P

 
Posted this up quickly before I started to "sink" myself into the workflow, a lot of stuff to clear..... Hopefully I am able to pay your blog a visit soon.
 

 I saw many bloggers baked this cake and all of them were singing praises on it, I was so tempting to try it out. However, I have phobia on baking chiffon cake, my success rate is not 100% probably due to my sucking folding skill lol. Thus this was shelving aside until Joceline posted it up, that was my final draw hahaha....
 

I was greedy, I wanted the cake to be more chocolaty so I decided to add in some chocolate chips which causing so many holes, the cake looked so ugly lol. 




 
Recipe adapted from Butter, Flour & me.
Egg Yolk Batter :
4 eggs  (80g)
30g brown sugar
1/4 tsp fine salt
50g vegetable oil
50g milk
1 tsp vanilla extract (I used 1/2 tsp vanilla powder)
30g cocoa powder } cocoa powder mixed well with hot water
100g hot water}
100g cake flour
1/2 tsp baking powder

White Egg Meringue :
4 egg white (165g)
60g caster sugar
Egg Yolk Batter :
1. Add egg yolk, brown sugar and salt, mix well using a hand whisk.
2. Add in oil, whisk in clockwise and mix well. Add in milk, mix well.
3. Add in vanilla extract and chocolate paste, mix well.
4. Sift in flour and baking powder and mix well.


Egg White Meringue :

1. Place egg whites in another clean bowl, beat with high speed until you can see big bubbles. 
2. Gradually add in sugar and beat until soft peak.

** You can add in a few drops of lemon juice or white vinegar and beat until can see big bubbles then gradually add in sugar and beat till soft peak.

Mix Batter :
1. Fold 1/3 of the egg whites meringue into egg yolk batter, gently fold with a rubber spatula until just blended. 
2. Then pour the batter back to the balance 2/3 of egg whites meringue and fold until mixture is well blended.
3. Pour the batter evenly into the chiffon cake pan. Gently bang the pan on the table top to release air bubbles.
4. Bake in pre-heated oven at 165C for 45 mins.
5. Invert cake onto a cooling rack until completely cooled. Remove cake from pan and serve.


Verdict?
The cake is soft and moist, very chocolaty. At this moment, I am not regret for adding in the chocolate chips, although the cake might dun look pretty but taste really yummy.

  14. It would seem that most people would not blame you for not wanting to leave the freedom of staying at home. I think that a lot of people really like light chocolate cake. The chocolate chips may not have made the cake look very good but I am sure that it tasted great. For the most part people also really like moist cake and do enjoy it when a cake is dry. Thank you for the recipe.

    1. Hi Chell, I think I bot it in Malaysia. If you cant find 20cm, I think 21cm should be alright since only 1 cm different.

  20. hmmm pandan chiffon cake and this moist chocolate chiffon cake which one better

    1. Hi Chell, that has to base on individual taste, some may prefer pandan some may prefer chocolate. Pandan and chocolate are 2 totally different taste, I do not know how to compare as I think both is equally good since I love pandan and I love chocolate too.

  22. Hi, I posted a link to your recipe on my (new new) blog. (http://ownselfbakeownselfeat.blogspot.sg/2013/10/chocolate-chiffon-cake.html)

    The cake looked weird/ warped, maybe its because of the size of the tin... But tasted incredible :)

    Is it possible to pare down the recipe?

    1. Hi Ling Tan, thank you for trying out the recipe and so sorry to hear that this cake is not a successful one for you. Looking at the shape of the cake, it may be due to the cake pan is too small to accomodate. perhaps if you want to try to bake again, either you scale down the ingredients or you can bake the balance batter in cupcakes.
