Rose Apple Chiffon Cake ~ 苹果花型戚风蛋糕


Lately, I have seen many Rose Apple Cake posts on FB, some are chiffon cakes while some are ogura cakes.  I was mesmerised by the fellow bloggers' skill in creating such a pretty cake and just can't wait to try my hands at baking one.

        250 ml water + 2 tsp lemon juice (reserve 1.1/4 Tbsp)
        1 tsp vanilla

  2. Place apple slices into (1) above and microwave for 1.1/2 min. till slices are pliable but not mushy.
  3. Drain the apple slices, pat dry with kitchen towel.

  13. Remove the cake from the oven and invert the cake over two supports so that the apple slices will not be squashed.
  14. Once completely cooled, then  loosen the cake with a spatula and unmould the cake.
