Biscoff Chiffon Cake


I made this chiffon cake with Lotus Biscoff cookies which is Europe's favourite cookie served with coffee.  These cookies have a unique taste and refined flavour which stems from the sugar's caramelization during the baking process with a hint of spices.  This is not a sponsored post but I just  feel that these cookies will work just as good as Oreo cookies in this recipe and I'm not disappointed at all!

  • 58 gm sugar
  • 75 ml oil

  6. Fold 1/3 egg  whites into the egg yolk mixture, mix well and fold in the remaining meringue.
  7. Gently pour the batter into an ungreased 23 cm chiffon cake pan.  Bang the pan once to remove air bubbles.

  9. Immediately invert the cake onto a wire rack and let it cool completely before unmoulding by hand.
