Walnut Coffee Chiffon Cake ~ 核桃咖啡戚风蛋糕

 

This is a soft and light coffee chiffon cake and I tweaked it a bit by adding in some chopped walnuts for some crunch.   One will never tire with having a piece of chiffon cake with your favourite hot cuppa as it's refreshing and can be served at all times of the day and on any occasion.
