Orange Chiffon Cake


Need to improve on unmoulding method though

Orange Chiffon Cake:

5 large eggs yolk
150g flour
100g caster sugar
2 tsps baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
orange zest from 3 small oranges
105g vegetable oil
150 g fresh orange juice (about 2 large oranges)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

6 large eggs white
50g caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar


1. Zest the oranges and squeeze out juice. Measure out 150g and set aside.
2. Sift together the flour, baking powder. Set aside.
3. In a large mixing bowl, place the yolks, oil, salt, vanilla extract and 100g sugar and beat with a hand whisk until combined and sugar has dissolved.
4. Beat the egg whites until frothy before adding cream of tartar. Continue beating until fine foams then gradually add in the 50g of sugar. Beat to stiff peaks.
5. When the meringue is almost done, add in the orange juice to the yolk batter followed by the flour and whisk quickly to incorporate until mixed.
6. Add 1/3 of meringue into the yolk batter and mix well with a hand whisk to lighten the batter. Add another 1/3 and mix till combined. Lastly add the final portion and whisk briefly to combine before switching to spatula to scoop batter from bottom and fold up until no more streaks of yolk batter can be seen.
7. Pour into prepared pan and tap on the table top to remove bubbles and also to even out the batter.
8. Bake in preheated oven at 160C for 60-70 minutes or until cooked. Invert immediately to cool completely before unmoulding.


This is too full! Reminder to self: DO NOT OVER FILL THE PAN!
