Cocoa Nutella Chiffon Cake ~ 可可榛子酱 戚风蛋糕

 I must admit that I love chiffon cakes and if you have been following my blog, you will notice that I have blogged many chiffon cake recipes.  Chiffon cakes are light and refreshing and they do stay soft and moist even after a few days stored in the refrigertor.   A plus point is that my family members do not get bored with chiffon cakes for they love them as much as I do!
