Avocado Chiffon Cake ~ 鳄梨戚風蛋糕


This is a soft, moist and fluffy chiffon cake with a slight hint of creamy avocado.   No oil is used in this recipe as the avocado is already creamy by itself.  Great to serve with a hot cup of coffee or tea for breakfast or just to snack on.

  2. Hi just curious. I've noticed it's only 75 grams of sugar on the recipe. Does the avocado also add some sweetness? I would like to try making this recipe. Thanks xx Hetty.

    1. For chiffon cakes, the sugar content is not as much as for plain cakes. The avocado does not add sweetness to the cake but you can get a bit of creamy taste in the cake.

Chicken Floss Cake ~ 鸡肉松蛋糕

It's normal to find buns coated with meat floss in any bakery, but yet to find a meat floss coated piece of cake.  I saw this Chicken Floss Cake on youtube and was eager to give this a shot.  The recipe is quite similar to a chiffon cake and I was curious to find out the taste which should be slightly sweetish and saltish.  Wouldn't it be weird, I wonder.  But it turned out that the taste is rather unique with a light and soft texture and my family members gave me a thumbs up and asked for more!
