Chocolate and Matcha Chiffon Cake ~ 巧克力抹茶戚风蛋糕

 


One of my family's favourite to have for breakfast or tea is the evergreen Chiffon Cake, be it in whatever flavour.   I have posted different flavours of chiffon cakes on my blog and this time I used matcha powder, and chocolate powder mixed with matcha powder not only for flavour but to create some swirl patterns.  As always chiffon cakes are light, airy, soft and most delectable.
