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.

        25 gm caster sugar
        50 ml canola oil
        60 gm grated apple + juice from the grated apple
        100 gm plain flour

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

        50 gm caster sugar
        1 tsp lemon juice

  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.
  4. Grate apple and add in 1.1/4 Tbsp apple water from (2) above.
  5. In a bowl, whisk egg yolks, sugar, vanilla and oil with a handwhisk till well combined.

  10. Pour batter into an ungreased 8 inch round springform pan.  Tap the pan a few times to remove air bubbles.
  11. Arrange apple slices onto the batter.
  12. Bake in a preheated oven @ 160 deg.C for 35 mins., then lower temperature to 150 deg.C for another 10 mins. if you see the top is browning, otherwise just continue to bake at 160 deg.C for 50 mins.  Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.
  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.
