Orange Chiffon Cake 香橙戚风蛋糕


I haven't baked mini chiffon cakes before and  with this 4 egg recipe, I managed to get 2 mini chiffon cakes.  These orange chiffon cakes were soft, moist, fluffy and the colour was of a striking bright orange.  I was totally pleased with these 'products' and yes, they were indeed yummy!

Ingredients  (A)

  • 70 ml orange juice
  • 90 gm plain flour
  • 10 gm cornflour
  • Zest of 1 orange

  • 4 egg whites  
  • 65 gm caster sugar

  6. Fold the egg whites into the egg mixture, mix well.
  7. Pour the mixture into two mini chiffon cake pans.  Lift and drop pans gently to remove air bubbles.
