Dragon fruit chiffon cupcakes ~ 火龙果戚风蛋糕


The Dragon fruit, also known as Pitaya, a cactus specie is a low-calorie fruit that can be enjoyed on its own or part of a salad, a smoothie or used as an ingredient in cake making.  I was very pleased when I saw that there was still a tinge of pink in the cake and it tasted  just wonderful, topped with a spoonful of the fresh fruit.
