Mango Yoghurt Chiffon Cake | 30 comments:




Baked this Mango Yoghurt Chiffon Cake some time back but only managed to locate the notes and post this today.  I like to try out different flavours of chiffon cake as I find it light and not filling with less oil and I can indulge in more without batting an eye lid!

I can never get tired of Chiffon Cakes, just love the soft, not too sweet and spongy texture.  What about you?

  1. Last time i prefer butter cake but now i try to slowly switch to chiffon since they are more healthier than butter cake, light and soft! Love this mango flavour of chiffon !

    1. Chiffon is my first preference, not so fattening.

  2. Yes, I love eating chiffon cakes too because they are so much lighter than buttercakes and of course less calories too! Your cake looks so evenly baked and I like the mango bits you've added.

    1. I'm not sifu, momsie, still learning the tricks. This cake is yummy. Must try the one with dragon fruit but have so many recipes on my to-do list so this must take a back seat for the moment.

  8. I like bake chiffon with yogurt too. It yields softer texture. Lovely chiffon with mango flavour. Nice!

    1. I agree with you but sometimes adding in yoghurt can be quite tricky, if too much the chiffon will collapse!

  14. I would like to try making this mango yoghurt chiffon cake and would like to verify with you on the amount of baking powder to add. You stated in your recipe to add 1/2 table spoon of baking powder, so if I'm making a bigger cake with 8 egg yolks & egg whites, do I increase the baking powder to 0.8 table spoon? Appreciate your advise. Thanks so much

    1. For easy calculations,I would suggest that you increase the recipe by half, i.e. use 7.1/2 egg yolks and 7.1/2 egg whites. 1 Tbsp = 3 tsp, therefore 1/2 Tbsp = 1.1/2 tsp = 6/4 tsp baking powder. For 7.1/2 egg yolks/whites, you use 6/4 + 3/4 = 9/4 = 2.1/4 tsp baking powder. Do you have a bigger chiffon pan? Because using 7.1/2 egg yolks/whites will give you a much bigger cake. Weigh out the egg to get half, then cook the balance! Hope this helps!

    2. Yes, I have a 25cm chiffon cake tin. Thank you so much for the advise. Have an enjoyable day!

    3. Hi, I tried to bake this cake without much success. Is there a specific mango yoghurt that I should use? I followed the instructions strictly but it didn't quite look like this? The taste is also quite bland too. Is there a specific type of mango you used as well?

      Cheers, Ed

    4. The mango yoghurt can be Dutch Lady or Nestle brand or any brand which is available in your region. I used home grown mango and unfortunately I don't know the the name of it.

  15. Hi. I tried doing the same. But mine crack and it was wet and moist. Not really cooked. What problem could tt be? Thx!!

    1. Hi! Maybe it's underbaked or you have deflated the egg whites. Also remember that the chiffon pan must not be greased at all. It's quite normal for the egg to crack. No harm in trying again.
