Coffee Chiffon Cake with Cocoa layering ~ 咖啡戚风蛋糕


This is a very soft and light chiffon cake and I used a combination of coffee and cocoa.  The flavours do blend well and complemented each other and it's perfect to serve this to guests or to enjoy at any time of the day.

  8. Tap the pan on the kitchen top to expel air bubbles.
